  • New Screenshots Of Dragon Quest 11 dragon quest 11Square-Enix has released its first batch of official screenshots for Dragon Quest 11, the next entry in Japan’s favorite RPG series.
    The game has been announced for Playstation 4 and 3DS. The below screenshots are taken from the Playstation 4 version of the game. Square did list Nintendo’s NX in the number of consoles Dragon Quest 11 would be released for, but Nintendo made them clam up fast on that end, and their new statement regarding that version is they’re “considering it.”

    Now here are some screens from the 3DS version, where they’re doing something a bit different. The handheld ...

  • Summon Night 5: A New Physical Release For PSP summon night 5Localization company Gaijinworks has announced a fall release for Summon Night 5, a strategy RPG for the PSP. Yes, you read correctly.
    The localization was announced earlier in 2015. It was asked back then why Summon Night 5 when the other four were never brought over, and Gaijinworks replied “It’s due to time and code completeness. Because 5 was very recent, the code base and assets were pretty easy to collect and it’s a great game that was a ground up effort. SN3 and 4 were ports, and though I would have liked to have started with 3, I’m not sure ...
  • Final Fantasy XV Getting Worldwide Simultaneous Release final fantasy xvThey’re serious over at Square about delivering Final Fantasy XV as soon as possible. Not only has the game’s director, Hajime Tabata, promised he can get the adventures of Prince Noctis and his car-riding bro pals into homes within the year of 2016, now he’s made another promise: that Final Fantasy XV will be the first game in the series to receive a worldwide simultaneous release. No downtime for translation work or shoving in extra European languages; this would ideally be out everywhere at once. In 2016.
    Is he just blowing smoke, or saying something he’ll regret later? Actually, a simultaneous ...
  • New Final Fantasy XV Footage: Dungeons, Malboros And More final fantasy xvSquare-Enix has released three new screenshots from Final Fantasy XV (which they’ve promised we’ll get in 2016).

    This is a shot taken within Restalm, a city within the region of Duscae. Wonder if this city follows a major battle and you’re supposed to “rest” there. Final Fantasy names tend to be on-the-nose.

    Here’s our party, travelling between areas. Who needs horses or airships when you got a sleek black sports car?

    And this is Ido, a dungeon area. Looks awesome.
    There’s also new gameplay footage, released for Gamescom, that shows the party’s encounter with the dreaded Malboro. Show any Final Fantasy veteran a picture ...

  • New Mod Gives Skyrim Pixar Visuals skyrimA new Skyrim mod from a man calling himself UniqueUses has been making waves in the Elder Scrolls fan community. He’s showing off something he’s been working on called “Toon Skyrim” that turns the graphics in the game into cartoon scenery.
    When applied to Skyrim, the visual makeover is surprisingly effective. Mountains, trees, cabins and piles of rocks all look like they would in a CGI animated movie. The mod hits a wall, though, when it applies the same render to humanoids, monsters and NPCs. In that instance the loss of detail makes faces look smudgy and awful. He’s working on ...
  • Final Fantasy XV Is Targeted For 2016 final fantasy xvHajime Tabata, director of Final Fantasy XV, told Gamespot that he was pushing toward a 2016 release date for the long, long, long-awaited game.
    Well, he didn’t say it specifically, but he “said” it in about as specific a manner as he could without actually saying it. “At the very least,” he started, “I can tell you that it isn’t going to be released this year. I think we’ll be able to tell you when we’re making the announcement around PAX Prime, at the end of this month.” He continued, “We can certainly say to people: it’s not going to be ...
  • You’ll Be Able To Play Fallout 4 Forever fallout 4Fallout 4 developer Bethesda revealed something new about the game today on their Twitter account. People have been wondering if Fallout 4 had a specific ending point, and the response was:
    “To our fans who’ve asked: Fallout 4 doesn’t end when the main story is over and there is no level cap. You can keep playing and leveling.”
    So if you want to, you can play Fallout 4 forever, or for as long as your console will last before it wears down, or as long as the Fallout 4 software remains compatible and playable on a modern PC. Or until you die, ...
  • Witcher 3’s Patch Getting A Patch We reported last week that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt had received a patch, 1.07, that wound up introducing as many problems as it had come to fix. Developer CD Projekt Red hauled major overtime, and now they’re releasing patch 1.08 just one week later to plug all those holes. Let’s hope it doesn’t drill some new ones.
    This patch, in addition to fixing the framerate issues from patch 1.07, fixes some glitches and repairs an Achievement that was previously impossible to get. It also lays the coding groundwork for the New Game Plus feature that will be added to the ...
  • The Final Fantasy 7 Remake Will Feature Different Combat The director of the upcoming Final Fantasy 7 remake, Tetsuya Nomura, spoke in an interview with Official Playstation Magazine that was published this week. Yes, there is still an Official Playstation Magazine, but only in England.
    Nomura revealed his team was looking at making “dramatic changes” to the game’s fighting style, then dialed back those words by adding, “That being said we want to clarify: We’re not going to be changing it into a shooter or something like that. We are going to be bringing dramatic changes, but we want to make sure it’s still recognizable.”
    This isn’t that surprising when you ...
