Though this comic goes both ways, I think the character is excited to be the main 8 character again.
The whatever hero strikes again! lol

Some highlights from famitsu interview with Kazushige Nojima, writer of ff8, translated by siliconera:
  • (Before working on Final Fantasy VIII’s story) “I used my bonus to purchase a PC and started using the Internet. I got my expectations up a bit while checking the message boards on the Internet to see what they were saying about the games I worked on… only to have my heart torn to pieces. [laughs]”
  • (What they said about Final Fantasy VII) “That it was the lowest of its kind for using that tragedy to try making them cry, that it relied too much on flashbacks, and so forth.”
  • “That reflected in Final Fantasy VIII as well since I went with a story that didn’t kill off any of the main characters. We also didn’t go all-out with the flashbacks.”
  • “Actually, for Laguna’s part, we first thought Laguna’s side would cover the first half of the entire story.”
  • “It ended up being smaller due to various reasons and we had a map made just for it that we didn’t get to use much. I still feel too embarrassed to look at the faces of the original staff…”
  • “We completely focused on what the male staff thought was ‘cute’ for Rinoa. Meanwhile, the female staff gave us an earful about how there was no way that a girl wearing a miniskirt could move like that. Didn’t think I’d get scolded that much [laughs].”
  • “When it comes to love, we should’ve had more female staff in the mix instead of just men.”
  • Final Fantasy is a major series but it is indie at heart. I believe Nomura-san (Tetsuya Nomura) should feel the same.”
  • Final Fantasy VIII is fine as it was. I didn’t start thinking that until recently.”
  • “If we were add a new episode, I’d want it to be about Laguna’s life.”

And Kitase commented on ff 8 remake:

Famitsu: What about Final Fantasy VIII Remake?
Yoshinori Kitase: “If the youth that inherits the genes of Final Fantasy can step up and do it, then I’d like to see it made. For Final Fantasy VII Remake, the project started from my desire to make Final Fantasy VII with today’s technology while I’m still here at Square Enix. So I’d like to see it [Final Fantasy VIII Remake] done by the youth of Square Enix.”

Wouldn't take much to remake it, story is there, got to pad it in places, fix some confusing parts and the like.
and probably reduce the lovey dovey thing a bit lol.
