To celebrate the launch of the game, we invited some of Square Enix’s greatest artists to give us their take on these iconic characters.

And boy, did they deliver!

The legendary Toshiyuki Itahana – designer on both the series (Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon EVERY BUDDY! available now #ShamelessPlug) and the FINAL FANTASY CRYSTAL CHRONICLES series, gives us his own take on The Man with the Machine Gun – Laguna Loire!

The WORLD OF FINAL FANTASY art director, Yasuhisa Izumisawa, has created this adorable illustration of FINAL FANTASY VIII’s cast! We love the Lilikin version of the logo!

Balamb Garden's Disciplinary Committee are out in full force thanks to Gen Kobayashi, artist on The World Ends With You!

The gunblade-wielding Squall headlines FINAL FANTASY VIII Remastered, but why should he take all the glory? STAR OCEAN: ANAMNESIS illustrator Yukihiro Kajimoto has created a brand-new piece featuring the rest of the main cast of the adventure.
