Ohhh, it’s that time of year again! The time where the year winds down to its final days and we all look towards the future. In the case of this nerd, that means making a list of games coming in 2018.

Now, 2017 was a blockbuster year for video games. It seemed like every single month something new, good, and exciting hit store shelves. While I am ashamed that I didn’t get to play it all, I can still appreciate how amazing this year has been. The new year doesn’t look like it’s going let up. So, I cherry-picked five of the best video games announced to release next year. Let’s take a look.

Square Enix Announces Dissidia Final Fantasy For Japanese Arcades

A new game in the Dissidia Final Fantasy franchise is coming to Japanese arcades. The series is best known for bringing together heroes and villains from all over the Final Fantasy franchise and being primarily on the PSP.

The new game brings updated graphics and a new 3 v 3 battle system. The trailer also shows off new character Y’Shtola from Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. So there might be some more new characters coming.

Usually with Japanese arcades releases, more than likely they come to consoles. Best bet is a PS4 or PS Vita release or both. Square Enix is expected to reveal more April 10th.

Final Fantasy Type-0 HD Story Trailer

Square dropped a new trailer for Final Fantasy Type-0 HD. It’s a bunch of information overload about the story that gets a bit confusing. It might require 2nd or 3rd viewing to completely understood but you’ll get the basic understanding of what’s going on.

Even if you are just looking to get the Final Fantasy XV demo, Type-0 still looks like a promising game. Epic battles, large enemies and crazy abilities. The game could be a pleasant surprise.

New Final Fantasy XV Trailer Is Pretty Epic, Makes The Almost 10 Year Wait Worth It

I told myself I wouldn’t get myself too excited for Final Fantasy XV, seeing as it has taken forever to develop, but dammit is this trailer has me a little wide eyed. With the demo coming out March of next year along with copies of Final Fantasy Type-0, my hopes have been somewhat renewed that this game will finally see the light of day.


Final Fantasy X/X2 HD To Have A New End Credits Scene


According to Gematsu, a scan in Jump magazine reveals a “new episode” for the HD remake of Final Fantasy X and X2. The website states:

It will be a 30-minute drama at the end credits of the game, featuring new cast and character voices.

For now that is all that is known, the game arrives sometime this fall for the PS3 and PS Vita.


Final Fantasy XV Details and Character Info


Square Enix has revealed details on the re-dubbed Final Fantasy XV. It’s funny how changing the name of the game and putting it on next gen system somehow completely rejuvenates interest in this series. Nevertheless, the concept of Final Fantasy XV has me looking forward to it more than any of the Final Fantasy games on the PS3 or Xbox 360. Whether the game is good or not remains to be seen until the game comes out next year.  Most of the information involves the plot and descriptions of the characters who will accompany Prince Noctis on his journey. Here are the synopsis from Square Enix:

The only crystal left to the world lies in the Kingdom of Lucis. Upon striking a peace with the garrison state of Niflheim, Lucis rejoices in having at last brought the cold war to a close. Their celebrations, however, are premature. Under the guise of amity, Niflheim dispels the anti-armament runewall and launches a full-scale invasion of the kingdom. The peaceful lives Crown Prince Noctis and his entourage once knew are consumed by the flames of war as they struggle to mount a resistance.

Noctis Lucis Caelum: A childhood affliction endowed Noctis, heir apparent to the throne of Lucis, with the mystical power to see a heavenly light, through which he could sense others’ deaths. Noctis rejects rigid royal conventions and acts as somewhat of a renegade, much to the dismay of those who tend to him. Yet while “Noct” may act brash at times, he does so in defense of those loyal to him.

Gladiolus Amicitia: As lord of the noble House Amicitia, Gladiolus continues a line sworn to protect the crown. “Gladio” shares a friendship with Noctis that transcends birth and title, and his loyalty to his liege is born not of duty, but of brotherhood.

Ignis Scientia: Ever the unwavering voice of reason, Ignis was weaned on shrewd logic and a classical education from boyhood so that he might one day counsel the would-be king, Noctis. He applies the deep mutual understanding and trust they have built over time to help smooth over Noctis’s brusqueness with others.

Prompto Argentum: The puckish playboy Prompto befriended Noctis in his school days. He wears a chip on his shoulder as an outsider to the royal circle, but remains eager to do all he can for the cause.

Cor Leonis: A living legend of Lucian lore, Lord Commander Cor Leonis’s devotion to the art of war is surpassed only by that to his king. Little love is lost between the ill-starred stalwart and Noctis’s retinue, yet honor binds him to keep watch over the group all the same.

Final Fantasy XV is coming to the PS4 and Xbox One sometime in 2014.


New Final Fantasy XV Gameplay Trailer


Perhaps the most drastically different entry within the main series, Final Fantasy XV (formally Final Fantasy Versus XIII) looks better than expected. Like Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy XV is an Action RPG rather than the series’ normally Turn Based outings. Looking at the action heavy game play, this could turn out to be the most accessible Final Fantasy to date. No word if Final Fantasy XV still connects to Final Fantasy XIII within the Story, but the change might benefit Square Enix in the end.

Final Fantasy XV is coming to the Playstation 4 and the Xbox One.
