Some rather unique information was recently revealed regarding one of the most famous Final Fantasy characters Squall Lionheart from Final Fantasy VIII. A former Square Enix employee by the name of Yuuichi Sasaki posted on Facebook that he started feeling nostalgic and began reminiscing about the development of FF8 while listening to Eyes on Me so he decided to share some information with everyone.

Apparently the characters in the game were inspired and modeled after people on the development team. He said that the development floor was like the world of Final Fantasy VIII and that the model for the protagonist Squall was based on Tetsuya Nomura and Rinoa was based on Hiromi Masuda. So this was a very nice feeling for him as it allowed him to immerse himself in the world and feel like he was always around the characters in the game while he was working.
