The Final Fantasy VIII Remastered release date is September 3 and in the run-up to this, Square Enix has revealed the PC price for the game in India as well as what kind of PC you’ll need to play it. While it costs $19.99 in the US, the Final Fantasy VIII RemasteredIndia PC price is Rs. 1,099. This isn’t on par with Steam’s regional pricing for India. Reason being, other games that have a $20 price tag like Wargroove have an India price of Rs. 529. Then again, Square Enix’s approach to regional pricing has been a mess since Nier Automata so this is to be expected.

The game’s Steam page also reveals relatively low system requirements. Details as follows.
