Will Final Fantasy VIII Remastered Have Dubbing in English and Japanese?

Final Fantasy 8 Remastered Is Official, Released in 2019 on PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC

The announcement of Final Fantasy VIII Remastered during the Square Enix conference at E3 2019 generated a lot of enthusiasm among video game players linked to this particular chapter of the appreciated and long-lived video game saga.

It is therefore not surprising that this product is already at the center of various rumors, one of which suggests the possibility that the game may include bilingual dubbing, specifically in Japanese and English. As reported by a user on ResetEra, in fact, within the source code of the official website of the game it would be possible to find a reference to this feature. In particular, the text incriminated is as follows: “FINAL FANTASY VIII Remastered is an RPG, available in English and Japanese voiceover, and is also text localized into French, Italian, German and Spanish “.

However, we would like to emphasize that, like every time we talk about rumors or alleged leaks, these are not official information. At the moment, Square Enix has not confirmed the presence of these features within the game. To know for sure if what reported on ResetEra has a truth fund, there is nothing left for us to do but wait for any communications in this sense from the software house.

In closing, we take the opportunity to remind you that the presentation of Final Fantasy VIII Remastered to the public has confirmed that the new version of the game will see the light on PC, Playstation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch: on these platforms the iconic JRPG will therefore be able to find new life, also thanks to the involvement in the project of many members of the original development team, including Nomura, Harada, and Kayano.
