    It has boggled me for many years... I am on of those rare seeds that loves FFVIII beyond anything else, preferring a VIII remake or the FFVIIR.

    But I wonder why Rinoa has never gotten any proper HD love? Sure there was the VIII PS2 technical demo like a decade ago... but there was never any proper implementation, not even till this day. Even though Squall and other VIII characters got love from KH and Dissidia. Rinoa, seems to get ignored.

    Is it just me?

    I can only think because Squall is the poster character of VIII.
    OK, I didn´t know this thing existed o_O.

    Ahh, FF VIII. My crown jewel of the series. Need to replay this one when I'm done with XV.

    I don't think VIII has been singled out. It got the same slightly updated steam version that VII and IX got.

    This game's story was about a script rewrite or two from being a pinnacle of the genre. Don't think the battle system held up through the years.

    I'm not talking about the game. I'm talking about Rinoa as a character. A lot of popular FF characters have been reborn through various other titles. And when you talk about popular VIII characters, Squall and Rinoa are on the title art. Yet, for some reason, Squall gets a lot of makeovers, but Rinoa hasn't gotten a single one yet. That's the strange thing.

    Oh, I getcha.

    My guess there is it's because she doesn't have anything special to bring out. Her role is more of a love interest/damsel in distress than hero, and Squall has a sword with a gun on it.

    Rinoa shoots boomerangs and dogs; is a sorceress with wings. How many characters in FF can top that :p

    It's noticeable as both Selphie (KH) and Quistis (WoFF) get cameos in other games, yet the heroine is overlooked. She is alluded to in KH by Leon, though, iirc.

    Dagger gets similar treatment. As does Ashe, as far as I know.

    The casts of VII and X have been pimped out. Other than that it's really just select characters such as Squall who get preferential treatment.
