In the past we have seen Final Fantasy titles releasing around a year after the Japanese launch in Europe, and sometimes several months after North America.
However, speaking to VG247, the game’s producer Yoshinori Kitase, told them that this time around it could be very different, pushing a simulataneous launch with North America this Spring…
The official Final Fantasy XIV English website has been updated with reams of new information regarding SquareEnix’s upcoming MMO.
Most importantly, we finally get an introduction to the game’s story. The new fantasy world, soon to be open to players to venture in, concerns benevolent Gods and Goddesses overlooking emerging tribes as they eke out an existence in the untamed lands of Eorzea. Sounds like a standard Final Fantasy set up to us.
Thrown into turmoil with the arrival of a more industrial and aggressive faction, the opposing clans band together to ultimately repel an attack that never comes.
What follows is an Age of Calm but also a surge of banditry due to a militarised nation now no longer needed to defend its cities and peoples. The perfect set up for adventuring.
With Final Fantasy (note: no roman numerals here) appearing on the Japanese Store a couple of weeks ago, and its spritely sequel popping up yesterday, it would appear that Square Enix plan on releasing as many of the classic Final Fantasy games as possible on the PSN.
With the recent news that Final Fantasy VII has reached 100,000 downloads from the US PlayStation Store within a fortnight, there was only one question that sprung to our collective mind.
Could a PSOne title from 1997 actually beat the likes of current-gen darlings such as Warhawk, GT5 Prologue and Ratchet & Clank?
There’s only one way to find out…
After the success of Final Fantasy VII finally landing onto PlayStation stores in North America – and then a few days later in Europe – another Final Fantasy has been submitted and reviewed by the ESRB rating board for the US and Canada.
Final Fantasy Tactics will be published by SCEA in North America and has received a Teen rating by the board, as did the original PSOne release, for the PS3 and PSP platforms.
June 2009 marks a historic moment for PS3 Attitude. It was the first of what we hope to be many E3′s to be covered live from the Los Angeles Convention Center. Over the course of four days, we would cover three different press conferences, multiple booth tours and live demos, and who know’s how many crossings from the South Hall to the West Hall, not to mention the meeting rooms upstairs. There were both ups and downs, good games and bad, but overall, it was an experience like no other.
Join us as we recap some of our favorite (and least favorite) moments of E3 2009 along with some never before seen pictures taken by yours truly…
On Tuesday we saw North America get Final Fantasy VII, arguably one of the best games ever made, and now another iconic PSOne classic has been given confirmation to hit the PlayStation Store.
Metal Gear Solid has been announced by Konami to be landing onto the North America store on June 18th, that’s in two weeks time.
Final Fantasy XIV was announced at the E3 Sony Press Conference alongside a great trailer. We have managed to get said trailer and even some screens of the game. With the news that this game will be out in 2010 still echoing in the conference hall, we have just one question: Why are you not ogling that sweet, sweet footage yet?
Already enchanting a whole new legion of fans over in Japan with its release on to the JP Store last month, it looks like English speakers and fans of big hair and bigger swords are finally about to get what they’ve been asking for with a revisit to Midgar.
With the ESRB rating the seminal classic for PSP and PS3, expect to see the biggest (and best?) Final Fantasy game soon.
Square Enix has plans to release Final Fanatasy XIII, probably the most anticipated game to come out from the land of the rising sun this generation, within a year after the Japanese launch, which should arrive within the next twelve months.
With the Japanese gaming public holed up in their tiny apartments, religiously playing the Final Fantasy XIII demo over and over again, it’s no surprise that we’re experiencing a FF media blowout at the moment.
With April 16th literally around the corner, Japan is about to go Final Fantasy bananas when the Final Fantasy VII Advent Children Complete Blu-ray release unleashes the FFXIII playable demo.
Japan’s other popular gaming magazine, Dengeki (which means ‘electric shock’ in Japanese by the way), sat down with Final Fantasy XIII’s Yoshinori Kitase and Motomu Toriyama, producer and director respectively, for a revealing chinwag and see how things are progressing in the land of all things Fantasy.
I might be going nuts, but I swear that I saw helghast in the FFXIII trailer released today. Have a look at the trailer and then hit the jump for my argument. Pass my meds while you’re at it…
A few hours back, Majiesto informed you that a new trailer would be made available in the FF XIII site. The video finally went live and minutes later, it was on YouTube.
As you can see in the upper section of the post, we have included the trailer so that you can enjoy it without having to visit any other site. Should you know it includes English subs, for all you ‘Gaijins’ out there.
Hours that is. We all know how addicting countdowns can be and the one for the new Final Fantasy XIII trailer is no exception. The website for the game has a countdown that is currently around 11 hours. When that time comes around, I’m sure there will be massive panic across the world as the site crashes due to enormous amounts of traffic.
The FFVII Advent Children themed PS3 enters in at #2 on Amazon Japan’s Best Sellers list with the film itself taking the top spot. Expect a bumper week in Japan this week in terms of PS3 sales.
It has begun. Final Fantasy sites start popping up like wild mushrooms. And they’re just as tasty (and may cause psychotropic delusion). Check out the article for links to the new North American version, a European offering and even the Japanese sites for those that are down with the nihongo ga.
“Dear Square Enix; I’m confused. And if I’m confused then maybe others are confused. And confusion – let me remind you – is the enemy of game sales.
You see, you have so many RPG titles coming out in 2009 for the PlayStation 3, I really don’t know which way to turn and what to buy…”
Tis the season to be … fantasy. With details of White Knight Chronicles’ episode 0 emerging yesterday it’s only fair that the other big hitter in the JRPG stable has the chance to bedazzle us …
