Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach is a fan of Final Fantasy, and she clearly demonstrated that recently. On Twitter earlier this week, Square Enix invited her to attend the release date event in March, a gesture that apparently blew her mind. It started with this tweet below ().
. We hear you’re a Final Fantasy fan! If you want to come to our big FFXV event in March, let us know!

Wurtzbach posted a series of responses to this tweet, one of which contained a reference to “Phoenix Down.” This is a Final Fantasy item that can revive knocked-out characters.
Wurtzbach didn’t confirm if she will in fact attend the Final Fantasy XV event in March, during which Square Enix will for the long-in-development role-playing game. We know, but the exact date will be announced during the Los Angeles event hosted by Kinda Funny.
Earlier this year, Wurztbach called herself a “closet gamer.”
Final fantasy and Tekken. I’m a closet gamer. -Pia

In a Wurtzbach also talked about her gaming habits, specifically, who her favorite Final Fantasy character is.
“I started with . Not a lot of people like VIII because they usually start with . But I started with VIII because I’m a girl and I fell for the love story,” she said.
“My favorite character…that’s a tough one… is Quistis. The one with the whip. I like her,” she added. “And my favorite GF, you know when they summon the GF, is Shiva. She’s my favorite. Then I do the boost, as well, so I get more damage. I love Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts. I finished all of Kingdom Hearts with no gameshark.”
Wurtzbach was named Miss Universe 2015 during the Miss Universe Pageant in December that gathered more attention than usual because host Steve Harvey made a big mistake.
