It Turns Out Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach Is A Huge Final Fantasy Fan


Pia Wurtzbach has a lot going for her. She’s beautiful, she’s talented and she’s Miss Universe. It doesn’t get much cooler than that. Or does it?

It turns out that Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach is a big fan of Final Fantasy. She recently indulged her fandom via a conversation with the official Final Fantasy Twitter account. They reached out to Wurtzbach to invite her to the big “Final Fantasy XV” reveal event in March, which was pretty cool. But it’s her reply that really caught our attention.

After receiving the invitation Pia Wurtzbach “died.” She then busted out a nice Final Fantasy reference out of nowhere.

But the fun didn’t stop there. Pia went back and forth with the Final Fantasy account for a few rounds, throwing out reference after reference.

Pia told her fans during a Q & A session last month that she’s a closet gamer and her games of choice are Final Fantasy and Tekken.

As far as her favorite Final Fantasy game goes, she confirmed in a Reddit AMA that her favorite is “Final Fantasy VIII” which was also her first.

“I started with Final Fantasy VIII. Not a lot of people like VIII because they usually start with FF VII. But I started with VIII because I’m a girl and I fell for the love story. My favorite character…that’s a tough one… is Quistis. The one with the whip. I like her.”

It looks like Miss Universe could be making an appearance at the big reveal party for “Final Fantasy XV” in March but we’ll have to wait and see. One way or another fans of the franchise are awaiting the event with anticipation as the release date is finally set to be revealed. It’s been a long time coming because “Final Fantasy XV” has been in development for 10 years now.

Square Enix has promised that the game will be released in 2016 and it’s only a matter of time before we find out the exact release date. But if her recent Twitter conversation is any indication, Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach might just be finding out a little sooner than the rest of us.
