Stunning CG Movie Kingslaive: Final Fantasy XV Hits Theatres 19th August

And it actually looks good

As the anti-weeb on the Push Square team, you may well be expecting this article to be laced with snark – but no, Kingslaive: Final Fantasy XV actually looks alright. The spin-off movie based upon the long-overdue role-playing game will hit select US theatres on 19th August, and then will be followed by a digital...

Square Enix Is Selling Japanese Voices for World of Final Fantasy as Special Edition DLC

Really?

World of Final Fantasy is getting a reasonably robust collector's edition on PlayStation 4. The $119.99 set comes with an art book, the game's soundtrack, the game itself, and cute little figurines of past Final Fantasy protagonists Cloud, Squall, and Lightning. Also included is a slew of bonus in-game content, including a Sephiroth...

World of Final Fantasy May Be a Spin-Off, But It Definitely Shouldn't Be Ignored

Step aside, Noctis

The more that we see of World of Final Fantasy, the more we begin to think that this cutesy little role-playing release could be one of the property's best products in quite some time. With the game due out near the end of October, it's no surprise that it's currently being overshadowed by Final Fantasy XV, but we'd urge you to...

News: Final Fantasy XV Has Dialogue Options

Final Fantasy XV Has Dialogue Options

Blah blah blah

Dialogue options are talking their way into Final Fantasy XV - is there anything that this game doesn't have? As Noctis, you'll be able to choose how he responds during specific conversations both within and outside of the main story. Your choice will, unsurprisingly, alter how things play out, although we doubt that they'll ever...

Classic character models, co-op, and much more

Review: I Am Setsuna (PS4)

I Am Setsuna (PS4)

Snow and steady

There's a real demand for more traditional Japanese role-playing games these days - experiences that call back to a time when turn based battles ruled and world maps were explored via airship. I Am Setsuna attempts to recapture that magic of the classic RPG, channelling the spirit of older Final Fantasy or Dragon Quest titles. It's a...

Poll: Will You Pay Full Price for Rise of the Tomb Raider on PS4?

Will You Pay Full Price for Rise of the Tomb Raider on PS4?

It's a Lara money

The rumour that Rise of the Tomb Raider is set to release on the PlayStation 4 on 11th October prompted some pretty interesting discussion here on Push Square this weekend. According to the GameStop Italy listing – from which this entire story stems – Square Enix will be charging around €70 for the port, which suggests that...

Lara Croft's Rise of the Tomb Raider Rushes PS4 on 11th October

And it may not be cheap

Ex-Xbox One exclusive Rise of the Tomb Raider will purportedly shimmy to the PlayStation 4 on 11th October, assuming that a product listing on the Italian arm of GameStop is accurate. The date's a Tuesday which isn't necessarily in line with typical European releases, but publisher Square Enix may be planning a simultaneous...

You Can Reverse Final Fantasy XV's Cover to Give it that Classic Look

Just the logo, thanks

Having grown up with more traditional Final Fantasy games over the years, it's no real surprise that we here at Push Square prefer the classical approach to the series' cover art. We don't want Lightning's moody mug staring into our souls - give us that lovely logo and the white background, thanks. Of course, in predictable...

Hands On: Seeking the Light in Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue

Seeking the Light in Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue

Saving the best for last

It's no secret that the Kingdom Hearts series has transformed into quite a meandering and occasionally confusing beast. After 2005's Kingdom Hearts II, the series spread itself across three additional platforms and continued telling side stories that expanded the lore, but never strictly progressed it any further than...

Review: Adventures of Mana (PS Vita)

Adventures of Mana (PS Vita)

Magic moment

If you're on the market for an old school action role-playing game that'll keep you reasonably entertained for a good few hours, you can't really go wrong with Adventures of Mana. Released on mobile devices earlier this year, it's a remake of Game Boy title Final Fantasy Adventure – or Mystic Quest as it was known in Europe. Despite...

World of Final Fantasy Looks Like a Lot of Fun in Fresh PS4 Screenshots

It's all so nice

The more we see of World of Final Fantasy, the more we're convinced that it's going to be a heart-warming little game. The title's latest PlayStation 4 screenshots show off towns, characters, moogles, and cosy looking airships. The project's cutesy aesthetic won't be for everyone, of course, but we have to admit the world that's...
