Is Squall Hotter in Kingdom Hearts Than in Final Fantasy VIII?

Is Squall Hotter in Kingdom Hearts Than in Final Fantasy VIII?

On this week’s episode of 99 Potions (Fanbyte’s premiere RPG podcast), it’s time for June’s monthly News Quest installment!

Now you should know, full disclosure, the RPG Pals (sans John(?)) spend 30 minutes talking about Kingdom Hearts at the top of this episode thanks to a recent interview with Square Enix’s Tetsuya Nomura. You’ll have to decide for yourself whether that’s a good thing or not, but the second half of the episode is much more normal, so please do try and power through it.

(You can also listen on Spotify or wherever you get your podcasts!)

That’s unless you like Kingdom Hearts, of course — in which case, please do try and power through the second half of this episode. Our panel discusses the latest noteworthy developments in the world of RPGs, including:

The announcement of Harvestella from Square Enix
Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection coming to Nintendo Switch
Imran’s hands-on time with Soul Hackers 2
The GILF from Star Ocean: The Divine Force that destroys our notes document
Dragon Quest X Offline‘s newly announced (Japanese) release date
Persona 3 Portable, Persona 4 Golden, and Persona 5 Royal coming to Switch
Nier: Automata coming to Switch
Quick updates on Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope, Granblue Fantasy: Relink, and Rain World: Downpour
And even the words Fallout 5 and The Elder Scrolls VI said in an official capacity by Bethesda Game Studios’ sole employee, Todd Howard

As the headline indicates, the RPG Pals also tackle some broader, more existential questions in this episode. It’s up to you whether you think Squall is hotter in Final Fantasy VIII than in Kingdom Hearts — everyone is entitled to their opinion (unless you’re actually on this podcast because Natalie has some choice words for you). We do think everyone can agree on one thing: Capcom needs to put out a Mega Man Legends Legacy Collection, or something close to it. Mega Man Legends 3 will never exist, so can’t we at least have a way to play The Misadventures of Tron Bonne that doesn’t cost almost $700?
