Dissidia Final Fantasy is one interesting series that was first made for handhelds, but has now became a game for the arcades and will soon have a home release on the PS4. Yet the most interesting decision Square Enix has made with the game is to finally bring the game to EVO, the premier fighting game tournament event, to showcase the upcoming PS4 release. They even had a panel to introduce and showcase the game to fighting game enthusiasts.
Ichiro Hazama, producer of Dissidia Final Fantasy NT, loved the crowd at Evo and hoped that their game can be a part of it. “The energy from the players is absolutely incredible. I wanted to build a title that could play a part in [...]

What happened when a games sucks so much that even patches and updates couldn’t save it? Make a new one? As crazy as it sounds, that was the decision Square Enix took once they found out their MMORPG Final Fantasy XIV was going to be terrible at launch.
The period during the launch of Final Fantasy XIII, which received lukewarm reception despite the team invested for so long in a whole new engine, and the disastrous launch of Final Fantasy XIV was a rough point for the Japanese company. Then CEO Yoichi Wada stepped down during this period, and the company predicted an extraordinary loss of 10 billion yen in 2013 due to various restructures to keep it afloat.
Cross-play, as in playing games together with players on other platforms, are now a major talk thanks to the very public support of the initiative seen in the announcement of cross-play for Minecraft and Rocket League at E3 this year. But there is one company that have done this years ago and it’s Square Enix.
Final Fantasy XI was one of the first games to support cross-platform play (it holds the Guinness World Record as the “First Cross-Platform Online RPG) and their latest MMORPG Final Fantasy XIV continues that tradition with cross-play with PC, PS4 and PS3 (though as the release of the new Stormblood expansion, the PS3 version is no longer [...]
Final Fantasy XV’s next story DLC, Episode Prompto is coming out real soon. Next week, to be accurate. This is the third piece of content tied to the Season Pass and will let you play as the wise-cracking gunslinger Prompto as he embarks on a personal journey.
Episode Prompto will fill in the gap when he ‘left’ the party during the train ride sequence leading to the end of the game. The way he left was one emotionally charged scene, if you were able to notice the subtle storytelling, which sets up a harrowing journey for our otherwise cheery party member.
As for gameplay, expect to see Prompto shooting many people with guns either with a third-person [...]

Recently Tetsuya Nomura said that both Kingdom Heart III and the Final Fantasy VII remake will only arrive in the next few years, which compared to other games nowadays that only announce when the wait time is about only a year, that’s a pretty long wait.
However, the good news is that we do have a new trailer. This trailer was debuted in one of the world tour concerts for the series’ soundtrack and has now been made availble to everyone to [...]
