Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach is not only a geeky gamer but also happens to be a “Final Fantasy” fan.
In a report made by EpicStream, the Filipina beauty was invited to a “Final Fantasy XV” event after Square Enix caught word that the beauty queen played “Final Fantasy VIII”. She was contacted by the video game company via Twitter.
Despite the fact that tickets to the said Final Fantasy event has already been sold out, the Miss Universe winner was still given the rare opportunity to attend. It will be held at Shrine Auditorium in Hollywood, California on March 30, 2016.

Wurtzbach proved that she knows her Final Fantasy stuff when she made references to various spells and items used in the game. The spokesperson for the Final Fantasy Twitter account responded with game-related remarks as well.
In a previous tweet, she admitted to being a closet gamer and made mention her favorite titles.

According to PSExtreme, the beauty contest winner shared in Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) what “Final Fantasy” game she played, her favorite playable characters and even prides to have beaten other games without cheating.
“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.”
“And my favorite GF [Guardian Force], 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 [in battle]. I love Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts. I finished all of Kingdom Hearts with no GameShark.”
No exact release date has been announced yet for “Final Fantasy XV” but Square Enix aims to have it sometime this year.
