Well we knew that Final Fantasy XIII was releasing this year in Japan, but the actual and final release date just sneaks in on time.
Thanks to some clever YouTube Japan users, the date of December …
For as long as we can remember, Final Fantasy fans have been nudging Square Enix to remake their most favourite game in the franchise; FF VII.
The PSOne classic recently hit the PlayStation Stores around the world and the request for a remake has never been higher.
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.
After the phenomenal success of Final Fantasy VII in 1997, many Western gamers — now enthralled by this new found wonder of the Japanese RPG — found themselves wondering just what else Square (soon to be SquareEnix) had up their sleeves.
In response, Square released Xenogears on the PS1 in February of 1998.
Considered high-brow, deep and, to some degree, irreverent, a section of the gaming public were shocked that, instead of another tale of huge swords, friendship and personal sacrifice, they got a convoluted and abstract story that questions the existence of God, waxes on about philosophical doctrine and wonders aloud about man’s evolution.
To this day, Xenogears is held very dear in the hearts of its many fans, seen as a work of immense complexity and acute intelligence. When Famitsu rates a game #16 in a list of the greatest games of all time, you know you have something special on your hands.
Remember the Square Enix countdown website with the letters VII? Although we didn’t get our hopes up too high, the first thing that sprung to mind was Final Fantasy VII and whether it was counting down to an announcement for another spin-off, or even a remake – if that ever happens.
Well none of that is true, as it is in fact an announcement for Lord of Vermilion II.
Brought to our attention by our good friends over at PS3 Center, it appears that Square Enix are at it again.
Just like the Count from Sesame Street, the Japanese developer’s addiction to counting shows no abatement with yet another page depicting an ever decreasing clock found clicking away over at the studio’s official site.
What could it be? We have some theories.
There’s at least one good outcome now that Eidos Interactive fits snugly under the wing of Square Enix – where we got two press releases in the past, we now get just the one cost-effective announcement in their place.
Confirming their joint game line-up for this year’s Gamescom, Square Enix and Eidos have revealed what games will be on show at the annual European expo in Cologne, Germany. And boy, it’s a doozy.
Released in Japan on the original PlayStation console back in 1997, and the following year in North America, EinhÃ¤nder is one of Square’s (note: pre merger with Enix) few dalliances outside the genre they’re renown for – the RPG.
A kinetic and brutal side-scroller, EinhÃ¤nder quickly became popular with shooter fans for its fast action, stellar audio and the use of 2.5D by shifting camera angles and employing 3D graphics while maintaining the purity of a 2D side-scroller.
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.
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?
Square Enix are pulling out some big E3 guns early. With billboards already up in the US citing FFXIII as being released next year and massive expectations for the announcements at the conference proper, Square Enix have got some serious work cut out for them in order to please the fans.
Hopefully the trailer for the relatively-new addition to the SE family, Nier, will not represent the high-point of the reveals. Not because it is bad or anything – moreso because we want more news. Bigger news. All the time
Probably best known outside of Japan for their Disgaea games, Nippon Ichi Software (or NIS) are hard at work making the natural shift over to the HD era and embracing the PS3.
With the Disgaea, Darkstalkers and Ar Tonelico character mashup Cross Edge finally about to hit in NA and EU, Nippon Ichi have revealed they are also hard at work on two new titles, Trinity Universe and Last Rebellion.
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.
Once more on our post-Saturday-night recovery day, known in some circles as “Sunday”, we take a look back at a week in Twitter. See what we have been chirping about all week and add your own tuneful melody into the mix if you feel so inclined..
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.
SEGA’s successes go from strength to strength. Next up is eagerly anticipated “Devil May Cry In A Dress” Bayonetta from DMC auteur Hideki Kamiya.
SEGA have shared some new screenshots with us so we’re now sharing them with you.
…to bring back the name Jason.
Yep, that’s right. According to the Codies’ site, the name Jason is becoming less and less popular and – as everyone knows – people with unpopular names are less successful. Apparently.
