  • Big New Look At Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom ni no kuni IINi No Kuni began as a DS game released only in Japan. A heavily upgraded version was created for the PS3 that came as close to playing a Studio Ghibli movie as possible — in fact, Ghibli themselves animated the cutscenes. That game is regarded as a cult classic, but it never sold well enough to make a sequel a guarantee.
    Thankfully, Level 5 felt otherwise (that, and they’re so fat off the profits from Yo-Kai Watch they can bankroll whatever they want now). Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom was announced last year during E3 2015. Today during the Playstation ...
  • Here’s When Stardew Valley Arrives On Consoles Stardew Valley, the indie sensation from earlier this year, finally has a release date for its long-overdue console debut. The game will be available on Playstation 4 December 13, and on XBox One December 14.
    What about the Wii U version? Uhh, what Wii U version? Ha ha, they never mentioned anything about a……
    Okay, they did, but releasing anything for the Wii U at this point doesn’t feel wise. Instead creator Eric Barone says he’s making the switch to Switch. “Looking at Wii U and the current gaming landscape, we made the difficult choice to shift our development efforts to creating ...
  • What’s Next For Square? Will There Be A Final Fantasy X-3? final fantasy 15On the eve of the latest Final Fantasy chapter finally being completed, it’s time to look into the future. Shinji Hashimoto, executive producer at Square-Enix, answered fan questions about possible future games earlier this month at Lucca Comics & Games 2016. This is an event in Japan, but the answers were translated by Siliconera.
    There have been rumors of a Final Fantasy X-3 in the works, sparked by the release of a radio drama that took place after the events of X-2. Hashimoto said that the Final Fantasy X and X-2 Remastered Edition sold well enough that they would consider it, ...
  • Final Fantasy XV: The Reviews Are In final fantasy xvAfter an unprecedented ten-year wait, Square-Enix’s Final Fantasy XV will be available for all Americans to play tomorrow. Usually when fans have to wait this long for a product, the end result is a letdown because nothing can match up to the overhyped anticipation. We’ll know what the public consensus is in a few days, but for now, the critics have had their say — and they love it.
    Polygon’s Philip Kollar felt the game was flawed, but its strengths far outshone those imperfections. “Final Fantasy XV can be baffling in some of its questionable choices, but across the board, it ...
  • Bethesda Loves The Nintendo Switch switchEven though Skyrim was prominently displayed as one of the games running on Nintendo’s Switch during their introductory trailer, Bethesda has yet to officially announce the game is coming to Switch. It is extremely obvious, however.
    Not only have we already seen Skyrim running on it (provided that wasn’t just digital trickery), but Todd Howard, director and executive producer at Bethesda, can’t stop gushing about how enthusiastic he is about the console-handheld hybrid’s potential.
    “I love it. I got to play it. I will tell you — well, maybe that’s an thing,” Howard told the website Glixel. “One of the ...
  • This May Be The Final Prerelease Trailer For Final Fantasy XV final fantasy xvIt is only eight days until Final Fantasy XV, a game ten years in the making, sits on store shelves at last.

    There’s one other thing to mention. Remember how this game was delayed two months so that it wouldn’t need a Day One patch? Uhh, it’s getting a Day One patch. Director Hajime Tabata told the press that his production team just kept working and adding things after ...
  • Persona 5 Delayed Yet Again persona 5Remember the planned Valentine’s Day 2017 release for Atlus’s Persona 5? I hope you weren’t planning on presenting it to your sweetheart, because it’s no longer scheduled for that month. The English version has been kicked down to April 4.
    This game was originally planned for a Japanese release in 2014. It was then delayed into 2015, and then into this year, where it finally came out two months ago. Shortly before then, Atlus revealed the US street date, which it has now taken back.
    Atlus feels bad about it, though. They would like to make up for the delay any way ...
  • Presenting The Most Expensive Final Fantasy Product EVER Final Fantasy collectors, prepare to weep, for there is now a collector’s item related to the series that will cost you $469,256. Also: there’s only one of it, so get prepared to fight.
    I’m talking about the Final Fantasy XV Audi R8, which appears in the movie Final Fantasy XV: Kingsglaive and has now been made into a real car. (Actually it was a real car all along….corporate synergy and all.) This particular Audi R8 has special branding and designs relating to the new FF game. The German automaker is only producing one.
    The only way to get it is by winning ...
  • Wow: Final Fantasy XV Has 16 Different Preorder DLC Trailers final fantasy xvIn the race to satisfy their bottom line, video game companies have been going a tad overboard with preorder incentives, and Square-Enix has just pushed the envelope with Final Fantasy XV. They put up the trailers for their preorder DLC content today, and there are a Malboro-choking SIXTEEN of them.
    This, however, doesn’t mean you have to preorder FFXV sixteen times to get everything….many of these trailers show material from the same packs. The actual number of separation is more like four or five across different retailers. Which is still too much.
    For those of us who won’t be preordering this game ...
  • Release Date Confirmed For Dragon Quest 8 On 3DS dragon quest 8A few months ago we had to report that the portable version of Dragon Quest 8 had been sidelined due to the release of Dragon Quest 7 being so close to it. The move was understandable, but disappointing nonetheless.
    Since then we haven’t known when Nintendo planned to put the game out…until today. The company confirmed they would be releasing Dragon Quest 8 on 3DS January 20, 2017. Which isn’t that far off, so….good.
    It’s mostly the same game, but there is a fair amount of new content….more story, new side quests, two new characters to recruit, full voice acting, StreetPass functionality, ...
