Yoshinori Kitase oversaw the remastering of Final Fantasy VIII, knows of that meme

Written by Brayden — 10 Sep 2019

Despite simply receiving a special thanks on the credits for Final Fantasy VIII Remastered, Yoshinori Kitase has revealed in an interview with Edamame Arcade Channel that he actually "oversaw the whole process" of remastering Final Fantasy VIII.

This is nice to hear since as he points out, Kitase was the director of Final Fantasy VIII in addition to helping write it.

Kitase also revealed he knows about the infamous meme "You're the best looking guy here".

Finally, he also spoke about how the game had some unique features and systems and hopes players who were turned off by them originally will give it another go as all the information players may want is available online.
