Now Playing: Final Fantasy VIII Remastered Reveal Trailer | Square Enix Press Conference E3 2019

GameSpot may get a commission from retail offers.

During Square Enix's press conference at E3 2019 back in June, the company announced a remastered version of Final Fantasy VIII would be coming to every current-generation platform later this year--as well as showing off more of Final Fantasy VII: Remake, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles, and Final Fantasy XIV.

Final Fantasy VIII is one of the more divisive entries in the long-running series, namely due to a contentious magic system that required you to "Draw" spells from enemies as opposed to using a traditional MP gauge. It was, however, notable for a drastic increase in audiovisual fidelity and a more realistic art style.

It also spawned a hilarious meme.

There's a ballroom dance scene early on in Final Fantasy VIII's story. Protagonist Squall meets his future love interest Rinoa for the first time, and she pays him a nice compliment.

Now, Square Enix has ruined this glorious moment in Final Fantasy VIII's remaster by having the gall to make it look too good.

We'll give them props for showcasing a remaster's graphical enhancements by acknowledging a five-year-old meme, even if it is a crying shame.
