FF8 Remastered International Dog Day

No matter what you do for a living, there will be days when you can't help but feel a little gloomy doing the ol' nine-to-five. Sometimes, though, you realise just how lucky you are, and one of those times is when you're given the go-ahead to spend the next few minutes creating a lovingly-crafted article focusing on the unexpected selection of dog pictures that just ended up in your inbox courtesy of Square Enix.

Yes, celebrating International Dog Day - which is both a thing that exists, and something which took place yesterday - Square Enix has decided to raise the hype for the upcoming Final Fantasy VIII Remastered release by showcasing the adorable Angelo. Those of you who have played the game before will know that Angelo is Rinoa's pet dog in the game, and she can be summoned to help in battles.

The game launches on Nintendo Switch on 3rd September, although it has been confirmed that it will only arrive as a digital release.
