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.
Well it seems a game in an almost 8 plus year development cycle makes an epic because Final Fantasy XV looks to be shaping up pretty nicely. The newest trailer shows off some new story and gameplay. The best part is the glimpse at the series’ first female Cid or as they call her “Cidney”. While the fact that there are no female party members is a letdown, this is a nice change of pace.
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.
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.
Square Enix is working with Dotnod Entertainment on a new episodic adventure game called Life is Strange . While the studio’s last game, Remember Me, didn’t really leave a lasting impression, storytelling seems to be more their forte. So I wouldn’t count them out.
From what is known the game takes place in fictional Arcadia Bay, Oregon where high school senior Max Caulfield is looking for her missing friend Rachel. Max has somehow gained the ability to turn back time, but it has not been mentioned how that works into gameplay. More will be shown at Gamescon. The game is set to release on PS4, PS3, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC. Date unknown.
Final Fantasy Type-0, one of the other Final Fantasy XIII alternate spinoffs, is coming to the PS4 and Xbox One. The game is to be remastered in HD for North America and Europe.
Despite the teaser we got last night for Kingdom Hearts 3 in the trailer for Kingdom Hearts 2.5 Remix and the almost decade long wait for Final Fantasy XV, it appears we won’t be seeing much of the two at E3 this year. According to Square Enix exec Shinji Hashimoto, in an interview with Famitsu, he says very little will be shown at this year’s show and they are waiting for the right moment to show off some new stuff on either game.
From the sound of things, the company is waiting until TGS to show off the games. Seems like a bold move but then again Kingdom Hearts has always had a big presence there. As for Final Fantasy XV who know when they will be finished with that game. I have given up trying to guess but one has to wonder if it’s broken any records for longest developed game.
Kingdom Hearts 1.5 Remix comes out September 13 on PS3.
