Man, these are the dumbest theories ever.

 

Squall dies at the end of Disc 1 when he's stabbed by Edea's ice spear and that the rest of the game is his dream

 

A note to fans with this "theory": when you die, you don't dream. Because, you know, you're dead.

 

 

 

 

What if the real theory that everyone missed is that Squall is trans edgelord? Like he wasn't an edgelord before but he went through a series of events and a surgery and we'll see it in a esteemed prequel coming soon.
It'll make trillions, believe me.


Also the dream death thing you said, its based on the whole life flashing before your eyes but instead its the rest of the story. lol

Mind. BLOWN.

 

Oh, and as for a remake of FFVI: please, no. FFVI is the greatest game of all time, and the moment I hear the voice actor for Locke, that will be ruined.

Maybe an option to turn the voices off in the menus would be nice. 

 

I'm okay with a remake as long as guile's theme plays when you suplex the train with sabin

If they re-released FFT with trophies, I don't think I'd leave my couch.  One of the greatest games of all time.  

 

Hell yeah. And trophies just seem so perfect for that game. Full Genji Armor? We got it. Learning ultima and zodiac? Yup.

My favorite part of that interview is when he says the fans think way too hard about stuff and just make up theories.

True, but it's not like these Japanese developers don't say stupid shit all the time as well.

Have Ramza learn every ability.  That would take so long and be so satisfying again.

Well, that's disappointing. To be honest, I think I would have preferred it if he just stayed quiet so players could come to their own interpretations. Those two fan theories were always super interesting to me, especially the one about Squall dying at the end of disc 1. It was fun to speculate.

 

It's interesting how he mentions a remake of the game. I'd love to see that, but would happily settle for a PS4 version of the original much like FFVII got.

 

Please, I already have a guide ready for submit xD

The one that wraps my top 3 alongside X and VI

Despite the visual similarities between Rinoa and Ultimecia in the final battle you see Ultimecia use Griever as a GF.

And Griever is Squall's pendant which he gives to Rinoa.

 

Also in (iirc) Dissidia there is Ultimecia which uses either Rinoa's Weapon or Dog (not sure which, someone correct me please).

It's never been confirmed if dissidia is canon or not, as far as her being able to junction griever as a guardian force, all it takes is for her to possess someone for a short time to use their abilities

Ultimecia pulls Griever as a memory out of Squall's mind (made clear in the Japanese version, but the English translation did not keep it clear). That's why he also has the name you gave the ring's lion. Ultimecia does use Rinoa's weapons in Dissidia, but that is irrelevant as other characters (such as Kuja and Tidus) use weapons that aren't theirs either.

Unfortunately, train suplexing in VI isn't really the same kind of meme in Japan. It was called Meteodrive/Meteor Strike over there (has been used in later English translations as well) and it's only ever been used as a move again in two of the spin-off mobile games that have featured Sabin. The version used in Record Keeper (Scorching Meteor Strike) does have him basically put the opponent inside a meteor to do the throw move, so it's sort of close at least.

Well that doesn't sound any make sense about FFVIII. How can Squall dream if he's really dead?

Good to see those theories put to rest. I remember reading something a while back that went on and on about Squall dying at the end of disc 1 and everything was a dream.

*sighs* 
I already told all of you, Squall is actually trans-edgelord and we will be seeing a prequel to the events of FF8, this is no longer a theory, it's been confirmed on wikipedia, Buzzfeed, AND pornhub!! 
Leaks have already came out on some of the storyline, we find out why Seifer was so butthurt at Squall all the time, apparently they were gay together and Squall got his edgelord operation done so Seifer started feeling left out and abandoned...so that's why he came up with that training session to kill his love Squall because he was no longer the happy go lucky Squall he used to love, Seifer was so fueled by rage that he himself started to change and eventually he got delusions he was a white knight, and his job was to protect all the whamen, (case in point Ultimecia). So it tells the story how Squall became an edgelord and how Seifer became a white knight...also touches on Quistis's past on where she was a paid dominatrix for the Tonberry before giving up that life to become a teacher....truly amazing story, hope theres more to it otherwise the whole things spoiled...supposed to come out whenever I feel like it, they said. 

Annnnnyways, I loved the theories of this game, makes it more interesting, wished they never came out and said that they were unfounded. I liked the possibility of Ultimecia being a future Rinoa. Also I thought Squally dead theory was pretty cool too even if it was less likely...
Hope someone liked my stupid af story, took me awhile to make it up lmfaooo

To be fair it wasn't just the ice projectile, once struck he also fell a considerable distance from a sizeable parade float. I thought it was an interesting theory at least but I never really bought into it.

Didn't he jump off of a tower to get there in the first place? He survived that without so much as a knee ache. lol

I want to know whether Squall would lose Attitude points for these 2 falls. :awesome:

This is all I got from the article. If I get my favorite numbered FF remade with trophies, I'll be very happy.

8 was my least favorite for so long, then Type-0 took that spot hands down couple of years. Depending on trophy list, might re-play it.

 

After just re-watching the video, looks to me the ice pierced him more in the pectoral region and that is the upper part of the lung, so major blood arteries there too. As for the guy who said 'No' to the theories, the dude is a producer. Is it his place to give definitive answers like that? I figure that would fall more on the creator(s), writer(s) and such to say yay or nay on things.
