Remember the Final Fantasy VIII meme “You’re the best looking guy here” addressed to Squall? As announced by Square Enix with a tweet with a playful tone, this meme will no longer be present in Final Fantasy VIII Remastered … wherein fact Squall will become the most beautiful boy in school!
In one of the initial scenes of the original game, Rinoa turned to Squall and said: “You’re the best looking guy here”. The meme was born from the graphic limits of the time, and from Squall’s pixelated face: enlarging the frame on the protagonist’s face, in fact, the face of the hero was barely recognizable.
Thanks to the improvements made to the graphics sector, in Final Fantasy VIII Remastered the face of Squall will be much more detailed. And it will no longer be possible to “tease” the beauty of Squall. To announce it is the same Square Enix with a very funny tweet published on the official Final Fantasy page, where we can see the famous scene of the meme taken in the remaster of Final Fantasy VIII: now the face of Squall is widely recognizable and is no longer pixellated.
On this occasion, we recall that Final Fantasy VIII Remastered is expected to be released in 2019 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. According to the latest rumors, the game could be released in physical edition and include double English and Japanese audio.
