So I've managed to get in a little bit of time with Square Enix's remade, redone, revamped Final Fantasy XIV, appropriately renamed A Realm Reborn to indicate the Phoenix-esque resurrection and rebirth of an MMO that had to die and come back to redeem its name. Unfortunately, not everything reincarnates into something great, even if it comes back better than what it was before.
It’s hard to believe, but Final Fantasy XI is officially celebrating its 11th birthday and, to celebrate, three of the game’s major battle area add-ons are being offer for a limited time, free of charge.
To quote a bunch of other people who saw the trailer for the PlayStation 4 exclusive: “GG MS, you tried”. With that said, Sony had Square Enix unveil, or rather, re-unveil Final Fantasy Versus XIII as Final Fantasy XV, exclusively for the PlayStation 4.
Two days folks...just two days. Square Enix has let their list of games fly off the hook with Final Fantasy being the main focus of their line-up. They also have the newly announced Eidos Montreal tablet title, Deus Ex: The Fall and their other recently announced Murdered: Soul Suspect to flesh out the rest of the list.
It's been a quarter of a century since the first Final Fantasy released for the Nintendo Entertainment System and, to celebrate, Square Enix is offering a handful of series titles for 50 percent off on the PlayStation Network starting today.
Are you a spiky-haired hero with a massive sword and a wicked case of amnesia? Are some of your best friends mages? Do you ride a chocobo to work? Did you name your dog Cid? If so, then chances are pretty good that you are, in fact, a Final Fantasy fan. There can be only one Super Fan, however, and in order to determine who that is, Square Enix is running itself a little competition.
Square Enix released some new footage of the upcoming revamped rendition of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. The footage shows off the game's streamlined play mechanics, schmexy graphics and high attention to audible detail.
At next year's E3 event in June, Square Enix has big plans for the Luminous Engine-powered Final Fantasy: Agni's Philosophy. The company is apparently planning on unveiling the game for Sony and Microsoft's new consoles according to Square's technology director, Julien Merceron.
It's looking pretty bleak for fans of Final Fantasy Type-0 to see a port of the game Stateside. New information indicates that the game that core gamers would actually like to play out of all the recent Final Fantasy games released, won't be arriving in a nation near you.
After suffering the humiliating defeat at the hands of the public over the rushed and incomplete release of Final Fantasy XIV, Square Enix had to tuck tail and go back into hiding to fix up, revamp and redo the game. Well, now the producer of the game is saying that FF XIV has more of a Final Fantasy-feeling to it than it did before.
Now that we know Lightning is going to strike for a third time in the Final Fantasy universe, it’s time to make doubly sure we’ve bled FF XIII-2 of every possible scrap of content in preparation for the third, and presumably final, trip to the magically high tech world of Cocoon. That means it’s time to stock up on DLC and, this week, you can do so on the cheap.
The PlayStation family of consoles is no stranger to the Final Fantasy franchise. Currently, you can download the first nine titles in the storied RPG series through PSN, with the exception of the elusive Final Fantasy III. That all changes next Tuesday, Sept. 25, when the game's 3D remake finally arrives on the PlayStation Portable as a digital download.
It’s been nearly a year since its initial announcement, but Square Enix has finally pulled back a little bit of the curtain on Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. Following the original MMO’s disastrous launch, Square Enix promises a whole new game out of A Realm Reborn, which is slated to hit the PlayStation 3 and PC.
If you were all afraid and cowering in a corner about the rumors regarding Final Fantasy Versus XIII being cancelled, you can take a a sigh of relief as the chief executive at Square Enix, Yoichi Wada, has confirmed that the game is still progressing and the cancellation rumors are just that...rumors.
Is there any series in the history of video games more poorly named than Final Fantasy? There are about a dozen of these “Final” Fantasies, another dozen spinoffs, and about a dozen iterations of each game itself. Take Final Fantasy III, for instance. The game game out in 1990 and, today, you can pick up the enhanced version of the roleplaying classic for your Android devices through Google Play.
