Final Fantasy VIII 20th anniversary event coming to Mobius Final Fantasy

Written by Brayden — 23 Sep 2018

Square Enix has announced during their Tokyo Game Show 2018 livestream for Mobius Final Fantasy that (as I predicted) they will be holding a Final Fantasy VIII collaboration event in the game to celebrate it's 20th anniversary.

It will be coming to the Japanese version this Winter and will come to the global version in 2019.

This will feature an original story from the team behind Final Fantasy VIII just like Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy XIII.

The Mobius Final Fantasy team is of course headed by producer Yoshinori Kitase who was the director Final Fantasy VIII. Kitase also helped write the scenario for the game which Kazushige Nojima led the writing for. Nojima is scenario supervisor on Mobius Final Fantasy. Shintaro Takai was the battle effect director on Final Fantasy VIII and is graphics & VFX director on Mobius.

This marks the first time director Motomu Toriyama will work on Final Fantasy VIII content. While Final Fantasy VIII was being developed, Toriyama was writing another game, Racing Lagoon.
