  • All of Square’s Final Fantasy Movies Are To Be Bundled Soon squareDid you notice that Square has now released THREE computer-animated Final Fantasy movies? They started with the box-office dud Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within in 2001, which is pretty much the reason they had to merge with Enix to remain solvent. Square made a safer bet by using FF VII characters in Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, released in 2005 and re-released every so often with slightly more footage.
    Most recently Square put out Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV, a prequel to the upcoming Final Fantasy XV that centered on the battle between kingdoms which sets the stage for the situation you’ll ...
  • The 3DS Version Of Dragon Quest 8 Delayed Into 2017 dragon quest 8Fans had been anticipating this announcement, but it stung nonetheless. Today during the Nintendo Direct livestream, the company responsible for creating the English version of Dragon Quest 8 for 3DS admitted the localization is going to take more time to finish. Originally scheduled for the fall of 2016, Dragon Quest 8 now has a vague 2017 release date.
    If you’re bummed out, consider this: Dragon Quest 7 is coming out for 3DS in about two weeks. That game takes an average of a hundred hours to complete, and there is additional content included this time. And you want another one so ...
  • Presenting The World of Wonder Tour Of Eos With Noctis — Final Fantasy 15 final fantasy 15There is yet another Final Fantasy 15 video in existence as of today.
    What makes this one different from the 50 other videos Square has put out by now? Noctis is narrating this one. He briefly glances through his backstory of being a sheltered prince who never got to see the world, until a street rat with a magic carpet — back up, I mean, a big fat war that made his palace uninhabitable — made it possible to see everything he’d been missing from life.

  • Persona 5’s Version of Online Co-Op persona 5This week’s issue of Famitsu revealed that Persona 5 will sport some online co-op capabilities. How does such a thing fit into a single-player JRPG? Like this….
    You can’t battle other players or tackle a dungeon in a strictly multiplayer mode. Persona 5 uses online cooperation a little differently. Let’s say you’re battling a big monster, and just when you’re about to win, the stupid guy decides to run. That’s when a friend can step in and block his exit on the map! And what if that enemy has taken one party member hostage? If you can’t save them, someone else ...
  • Final Fantasy 15 Delayed Due To Bugs final fantasy 15Last week when a two-month delay was announced for Square’s Final Fantasy 15, no one really knew why. This week’s Famitsu, however, solves that mystery…a new interview with director Hajime Tabata reveals the game turned out to have some bad bugs that Square wished to fix.
    “For starters,” he said, “the optimization isn’t sufficient. There are also various bugs as well as places in which the frame rate drops.” Not all of these glitches are bad enough to interfere with gameplay, but they’re embarrassing enough to eradicate. “There are still of number of bugs like characters floating unnaturally in the ...
  • Final Fantasy 15 Gets Less Open World The Longer You Play final fantasy xvFinal Fantasy XV director Hajime Tabata was given a fresh interview by Famitsu about the state of the game and what players can expect from it when it appears November 30. Unfortunately, what he revealed isn’t going to make everybody happy.
    “The first half keeps going as an open-world, but the story in the second half is led by a linear path,” Tabata said. “That way, you won’t get bored of an open world as the rest of the game gets tightened up, so we made it in a way that you’ll also get to advance through it as you have ...

  • Disgaea 2 Announced For Steam disgaea 2Nippon Ichi Software is adding to its Steam library with the announcement of an upcoming port for Disgaea 2. The original Disgaea made its debut on Steam last February; it appears Disgaea 2 will take just as long given its vague release window of 2017.
    It may seem like Disgaea is available on every playable device, and for Disgaea 1 that’s certainly the case, but Disgaea 2 is actually only currently playable on two machines, both of which are obsolete: Playstation 2 (2006 release) and PSP (2009 release). This new release will open up the game to a new audience that ...
