Square Enix has finally put a release date on the Final Fantasy 7/8 Remastered Twin Pack for Switch for two more regions. We already know the North American version will be out for the Switch on October 22nd, but this past week the company finally confirmed dates for Europe, New Zealand, and Australia. The set will be released on December 4th as the Twin Pack is currently priced at €39.99, while the lone PS4 Final Fantasy version for the individual games is priced at €19.99. You can read about both below as the older gamers in us recall a time when both of these games would have required seven discs to play them both.

Final Fantasy VII, the timeless classic loved by a legion of fans, is now available with a number of helpful extra features! Experience an epic adventure beyond imagination, culminating in the final battle to decide the fate of the planet. The world has fallen under the dominion of the Shinra Electric Power Company, a sinister corporation that has monopolized the planet's very life force as Mako energy. In the urban megalopolis of Midgar, an anti-Shinra rebel group calling themselves Avalanche have stepped up their campaign of resistance. Cloud Strife, a former member of Shinra's elite SOLDIER unit now turned mercenary, lends his aid to the rebels, unaware that he will be drawn into an epic battle for the fate of the planet, while having to come to terms with his own lost past.

It is a time of war. The Republic of Galbadia, under the influence of the sorceress Edea, mobilizes its great armies against the other nations of the world. Squall and other members of SeeD, an elite mercenary force, join hands with Rinoa, a resistance fighter, to fight against Galbadia's tyrannical rule and to prevent Edea from fulfilling her ultimate goal. This product is a remaster of Final Fantasy VIII, featuring multiple enhancements including additional options to customize your gameplay experience and difficulty.
