New Final Fantasy XV Screenshots Prove It's a Preposterously Pretty PS4 Game

Perfect particles

While we may question how good Final Fantasy XV's gameplay looks, there's one thing that we simply can't deny: the game is very, very pretty - and we're not just talking about its stereotypical pretty boy cast. Square Enix has released a huge pile of fresh screenshots that showcase everything from environments to character and...

Here's Your Last Look at Star Ocean Before it Launches on PS4

Shooting star

After months and months of adding a '5' to the end of Star Ocean, we've only just realised that the Western release isn't numbered - it's just called Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness. Whoops. Anyway, this launch trailer is likely your last chance to spy new gameplay before the role-playing game hits store shelves in just over...

E3 2016: Who'd Have Ever Thought NieR Would Get a Sequel That Actually Looks Good?

Who'd Have Ever Thought NieR Would Get a Sequel That Actually Looks Good?

C'mon, be honest

We'll probably get nailed to a wooden cross for this, but the perspective at Push Square Towers is that Scalebound – despite being directed by the legendary Hideki Kamiya – looks like total dross. And yes, before you start bleating in the comments, we'd say the same if it was a PlayStation 4 game. The good news is that...

This Is the Best Final Fantasy XV Video You'll See at E3

Eyes forward

Between cumbersome boss battles and crumby PlayStation VR spin-offs, Final Fantasy XV hasn't had a particularly great E3 2016. That's not stopping Square Enix from releasing one more trailer, though – and this one's the best yet. There's no music, and almost zero dialogue – just a car that can turn into an aeroplane. Watching...

Final Fantasy XV Has an Optional Turn Based Battle Mode

Wait right there

We feel like we've heard about this before, but now that we've seen it in action, it seems to be far more substantial than we had previously given it credit for. During a presentation of Final Fantasy XV at E3 2016, director Hajime Tabata put the title's optional 'Wait' mode through its paces, and it honestly looks like it could...

There's Another Final Fantasy XV Game Coming to PS4

How many extras does one game need?

At this point we'd love to know how much money Square Enix has pumped into Final Fantasy XV and all of its expanded universe stuff, but it looks like the Japanese publisher's not done yet. Alongside the game's release on the 30th September, you'll be able to get your hands on A King's Tale: Final Fantasy XV, a...

E3 2016: Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV Looks Seriously Impressive

Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV Looks Seriously Impressive

Phwoar

Square Enix has always loved its CG, but we'd argue that this is the best looking CG production that the company's ever been involved with. Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV ties directly into Final Fantasy XV, telling the story of an elite group of soldiers fighting to defend their kingdom from an invading empire while Noctis is off driving...

NieR: Automata Looks Stupidly Slick in New PS4 Gameplay Trailer

Take those bandages off your eyes

Phwoar, as far as action games go, NieR: Automata is looking super slick. Square Enix has brought an attractive gameplay trailer to E3 2016, which showcases combat, boss fights, and some brand new environments. In short, it looks really promising. Of course, with Platinum at the helm, you've got every reason to...

Final Fantasy XV Looks Really, Really Rough in Awkward New Gameplay Demo

Noct good

As predicted, Final Fantasy XV turned up at Microsoft's E3 2016 press conference - but we're not convinced that it was a good idea to come along at all. The brief boss fight that Square Enix brought to the show looked completely unfinished, disastrously awkward, and not at all fun to play. For months now, people have been questioning...

E3 2016: Final Fantasy XV Will Apparently Appear at Microsoft's Press Conference

Final Fantasy XV Will Apparently Appear at Microsoft's Press Conference

Noct like this

For obvious reasons, we won't be covering Microsoft's imminent E3 2016 press conference, but it's worth pointing out that Final Fantasy XV will apparently be there. If you've been keeping up over the past couple of days, you'll know that the American company's presser has been leaking like crazy, so this rumour at least seems...
