PlayStation Portable exclusive Final Fantasy Type-0 is nearly finished, Square Enix has revealed
Director Hajime Tabata said on the game's development blog that the final tasks involved tuning and debugging the game.

Crystal Dynamics has released a bumper making-of documentary for its staggering Tomb Raider E3 trailer
In the 12-minute video, Tomb Raider's brand manager Karl Stewart reveals how Crystal Dynamics worked with Square Enix's internal CG team to craft the game's moody debut. It's a fascinating watch if you're into making-of videos. Man, we wished they'd push Tomb Raider's release forward. Just hearing..
Final Fantasy XI is an MMO for the PlayStation 2 and PC
Square Enix is looking at ways of bringing the title to Sony's new handheld, the PlayStation Vita. Hiromichi Tanaka broke the news in this week's Famitsu magazine. He said nothing was concrete, and that the publisher was merely looking into the possibility of porting the title. With a Vita version being investigated, you might be forgiven for..
As promised, Tetsuya Nomura has given Famitsu magazine an update on the upcoming Final Fantasy Versus XIII
Hilariously, Nomura spent much of the update apologising for the game's long development cycle, promising more substantial updates in the future. But there were a few snippets of interest, as reported by Final Fantasy Union. Firstly, Versus XIII will have cut-scenes inspired by popular..
Something bizzarre's happening with Final Fantasy XIII-2: there's just no enthusiasm
While the original Final Fantasy XIII was certainly a flawed experience, it wasn't so terrible that the sequel should be ignored entirely. And yet despite having a huge showing at this year's E3, few publications took the time to really put the title in the spotlight. Square Enix has released a fresh batch of..
Crystal Dynamics might be hard at work on the fantastic looking Tomb Raider reboot, but it seems that it's not the only title the studio has in its portfolio
Speaking on the studio's podcast, gaffer Darrell Gallagher discussed the new IP for the first time, explaining that the new title is still in its "early stages". Were starting to look at doing a new IP here, and were in the..
Final Fantasy Type-0 is about 80-percent finished according to Square Enix's Tetsuya Nomura, but the game's still unlikely to meet its Summer release window
The game's now due to release in the Autumn, as the developer apologised for the delay. According to Nomura, the PlayStation Network outage is responsible for the delay. Nice to have a scape-goat isn't it? Apparently the game will boast over..
Final Fantasy Versus XIII is still a video game
According to Andriasang, this week's Famitsu magazine contains an interview with project lead Tetsuya Nomura in which he promises an update on the game next issue. The website also states that Nomura also teased a new title in the magazine — perhaps best to finish off the ones you are still working on first, huh? And that's the entirety of your..
The much anticipated Final Fantasy VII costume pack for LittleBigPlanet will launch on the PlayStation Store next week according to the PlayStation Blog
Costumes for Tifa, Sephiroth, Cloud and Aeris will be available for £1.59 / $1.99 each, or bundled together with an exclusive Vincent outfit for £4.79 / $5.99. Sony's also announced an inFamous 2 pack — featuring a good and evil Cole for £2.39..
Later this year Sony will launch its PSP Remasters Series for PlayStation 3
The initiative will bring upgraded versions of Monster Hunter Portable 3rd and both handheld God Of War titles to Sony's home-system. With two top-tier PSP titles already pledged to get the remasters treatment, many have been wondering which games will follow their lead. Square Enix's Final Fantasy Dissidia series seems..
Did you hear? E3 is over
That means we're left processing all the left-overs. Like this exciting tid-bit: Square Enix has updated Final Fantasy Type-0's official website. The page includes renders from the upcoming PSP title's roster. There are even some wallpapers for you to download. Woah! Check it all out through here.
The star of Microsoft's E3 press conference just so happened to be a multiplatform game
Earlier this evening Crystal Dynamics took to the stage to reveal the first gameplay footage of its upcoming Tomb Raider reboot. The demonstration showed Lara Croft trapped in a capitulating cave while being chased by a shady figure. Clearly Crystal Dynamics has been playing a whole ton of Uncharted, but there's..
Square Enix has released a CG trailer for the new Tomb Raider game and it looks phenomenal
We absolutely adore the tone of the game — the lone survivor theme is fascinating. We also went in expecting to hate Lara Croft's voice — how can you better Keeley Hawes? — but we actually really like the voice actor. The biggest problem with this trailer is the release date that pops up at the end..
Remember GRIN? There was a period in 2009 where virtually every game coming out had their name on it: Bionic Commando, Wanted, Terminator Salvation
They seemed to come out of nowhere, and disappear just as quickly. Yet shortly after their closure we got details that the company was working on a Final..
We recently went gaga over the appearance of a countdown clock on carmageddon
com</a>. Piecing two-and-two together, we automatically assumed that this suggested a new game announcement in the series from publisher Square Enix. We were wrong. Apparently developer Stainless Games has bought the rights for the Carmageddon franchise off Square...
Regular readers will know that we're big fans of the car-combat genre
Up until last year, we'd given up hope of the genre making a return to its golden years, but then David Jaffe changed everything by announcing Twisted Metal and making us go mad in celebration. Twisted Metal is not out yet, but already the genre seems to be having somewhat of a mini-revival. Earlier in the year there was Red..
Proving once again that any online service is susceptible to attacks, websites for Eidos and Deus Ex were hacked over night, compromising the data of just under 100,000 users. Unbelievably, of that data over 9,000 resumes were stolen. The hack was believed to have been undertaken by a rogue entity of Anonymous. As bad as the compromised data sounds, it actually gets worse. KrebsOnSecurity has..
Square Enix has confirmed that it has cancelled a number of unconfirmed digital titles in order to strengthen its finances
In a statement, the publisher predicted a net loss for the year ending March 31st. The company had previously expected to profit. Square Enix blamed the loss on the costs incurred in cancelling projects. "Under a rapidly changing operating environment and more prudent..
We all knew it was coming, but now it's official
Square Enix has just confirmed the existence of Hitman Absolution with a teaser trailer. We've embedded it above. Details are super scarce right now, presumably with more to follow at E3. We'll keep you updated.
When we started this website, we made an internal pledge to cut out the metaphors that's so prevalent in games media
Sometimes we fail. We're failing right now actually, while we discuss aims and objectives that have nothing to do with this stor--... Ok. IO Interactive has Tweeted that "next week will be very good" and that we should "get ready for the incoming shrapnel."..
What big release doesn't come neatly packaged in a tidy collector's edition these days? Not ones to shy of current trends, Square Enix has announced that, yes, Deus Ex: Human Revolution will be available as part of a big box set
To be fair, it does look classy. The collector's edition includes a ton of goodies. First up, there's the super slick collector's box. Will look nice on your shelf that..
Square Enix has been a roll when it comes to Final Fantasy re-releases of late
We only just got Final Fantasy V here in the West, but now the publisher is teasing a digital release of Final Fantasy VI in Japan. Siliconera reports that that the game will be available to download from April 20th. Naturally it'll be the PSone version of the game,...
Dear readers, We are aware that some of you might been duped into believing that a remake of Final Fantasy VII is coming to the NGP
While we agree that this would be amazing, it has come to our attention that some websites are posting a fake job letter in order to support their personal fantasies. Please don't believe them. While it's entirely feasible that Square Enix might consider developing..
Square Enix has pushed back the European release of Dungeon Siege III by a couple of weeks, the publisher has announced today
The Obsidian developed game was originally scheduled for release on May 27th. It'll now launch on June 17th. No announcements regarding the US release date were made. Update @ 19:46 BST: Square Enix has just confirmed that the game has been delayed until June 21st in North..
The PSone edition of Final Fantasy V is headed to the PlayStation Network according to a press release distributed by Square Enix this afternoon

Square Enix has confirmed that timed PlayStation Network exclusive, Moon Diver, will launch this week in Europe and North America
The game, which looks a lot like Strider, is a four-player co-op action game designed by Koichi Yotsui. Unsurprisingly, Yotsui-san was one of the leads on the original Strider game.
Remember that alternate-reality Hitman 5 game we told you about the other day? Well now it's kicking up bonafide screenshots
Four of the images reference the Canada's CN Tower — the world's largest free-standing structure. Fans are speculating that this suggests Hitman 5 will be set in Canada. It's the fifth image that is most interesting though. It looks to be a screenshot from a CGI movie,..

At this point, we're wishing Dissidia duodecim FINAL FANTASY would just flippin' come out already. It's not because we can't wait to play it...
It sounds like Hitman 5's finally set to get its long awaited announcement at this year's E3
Members of the franchise's forums are dizzy with speculation after a bunch of ARG clues started appearing around the Internet. Hit the link for all the clues. As with any ARG it all gets a bit confusing after the first couple of announcements, but, from what we can gather, the latest update includes a..
Square Enix has revealed that it will launch the PSone classic, Parasite Eve, on the American PlayStation Store this week
The release comes ahead of the Western launch for PSP Parasite Eve spin-off, The 3rd Birthday. There's still no news of a European release for Parasite Eve nor its sequel.
At some point, Square Enix decided it would be funny to troll games bloggers
As if Dissidia 012 FINAL FANTASY wasn't heinous enough, the publisher's just announced a kind of premium demo for the game entitled Dissidia duodecim prologus FINAL FANTASY. The taster comes with a unique scenario featuring Lightning, as well as the ability to carry any...
Square Enix has slapped a big juicy August 23rd / August 26th release date on Deus Ex: Human Revolution for the US and UK respectively
The announcement comes days after retailers accidentally broke the news. The game's currently available for pre-order in two different flavours. The standard edition comes with an Explosive Mission Pack, featuring a new mission and some additional gear. The..
Spot of make-up and a touch of botox and look at that, good as new
Crystal Dynamics has released some comparison shots for their upcoming PlayStation 3 Tomb Raider Trilogy. The pack — which includes PS2 titles Tomb Raider Legends & Anniversary, in addition to PS3 game Underworld — has been remastered in HD (well the PS2 games have anyway) and is due out at the end of the month.
Does anybody remember Crystal Dynamics' cult third-person action adventure title, Legacy Of Kain: Soul Reaver? Some of you
Well as of tomorrow you'll be able to revisit the PSone classic as it launches for £7.99 on the European PlayStation Store. For those unfamiliar with the title, it's pretty moody. If moody is your cup of tea, then step right...
America, Square Enix are really starting to spoil you
You get Xenogears last week, you're getting Vagrant Story next week, and you'll probably get Parasite Eve this month. Good, eh? Vagrant Story will set you back $6 when it becomes available tomorrow.
Looks like Square's readying that digital copy of Parasite Eve just in time for the series' upcoming spiritual successor, The 3rd Birthday
The survival horror classic has been rated by the ESRB for a PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable release — presumably via the PlayStation Store. Don't hold your breath over a European re-release — the game...
Following yesterday's UK release date, Square Enix has released an English trailer for The 3rd Birthday
It's rich with the kind of disjointed dialogue and silly music you'd expect from a hastily translated Japanese game. But we're still pumped. Pretty girls, big guns and a nonsense plot? What's not to love?
It feels like we've been talking about Square Enix's PSP Parasite Eve spin-off, The 3rd Birthday, for years now
The game's been appearing on "Most Wanted" lists for what seems like an eternity, but the wait's finally coming to an end. Square Enix sent us a press release this afternoon confirming the PSP shooter's UK release date as April 1st. It'll ship with a bunch of goodies to make up..
Someone call Kane & Lynch -- tell them they're fired
Why? Because Danish studio, IO Interactive, is staffing up for what it touts to be "one of the most exciting projects" in the studio's history. We're guessing this has more to do with Hitman than Mini Ninjas. The role — for a "Lead Character Artist" if you're interested — notes: We are looking for an exceptional..
There'll be no more Final Fantasy spin-off action once the upcoming Duodecim hits store shelves next month
Creator Tetsuya Nomura has said as much in the latest issue of Dengeki PlayStation magazine. "There is no next," he revealed, presumably meaning 'no sequel'. "We're thinking about ending this pattern of Dissidia here. There also won't be a UT [Universal Tuning is the name for..
Confession: we don't know a thing about Xenogears
Excuse: it never came out in Europe. We know some PlayStation fans will be going bonkers at the prospect of playing Square Enix's classic role-playing game again on PS3/PSP. Listed in the American PlayStation Blog's weekly run-down, the PSone Classic's due out on the PlayStation Store tomorrow. We'd...
Square Enix has just put a date on the most pretentious name in video game history
DISSIDIA 012 FINAL FANTASY will launch in Europe on March 25th, a week before Square Enix's other blockbuster PSP title, The 3rd Birthday. As with the Parasite Eve spin-off, DISSIDIA's retail UMD package will come with a few additional goodies, included downloadable costumes, exclusive art prints, and a 50 percent..
And so it starts
.. With confirmation that original PSP titles purchased through the PlayStation Store will be backwards compatible on the NGP, publishers are beginning to think it might be a good idea to release their backcatalogue on the PSN. First-up are Square Enix's PSP remakes of Final Fantasy 1 & 2. Both will cost 9.99, with the first...
Parasite Eve is back
(Sort of.) Square Enix has readily slapped a March 29th release date on Square Enix's PE spin-off, The 3rd Birthday. Bizarrely, the game will only release on UMD, with "no plans" for a digital version. We don't get it. What's the disadvantage of releasing the game on UMD and the PlayStation Store? Weird. In addition to the release date, Square's also confirmed that..
Square Enix has formally revealed the Twisted Edition of upcoming PSP shooter, The 3rd Birthday
The Europe-only (for now) package includes a number of premium items, all of which focusing on the game's, err, lovely protagonist Aya Brea. There's an artbook, lithographs and more. It sounds like all UMD copies of The 3rd Birthday will ship as the Twisted Edition. Which is cool. More freebies for you,..
.. Have a new screenshot. We won't charge, freebie this one. Keep enjoying the long wait until you can play this one.</em>
Got a progress file for Final Fantasy XIII? Square Enix duo Yoshinori Kitase and Motomu Toriyama recommend you keep hold of it preperation for Final Fantasy XIII-2

Just Cause developers, Avalanche, have told Eurogamer that they'll be ready to announce their new title "in a month or so"
Top noggin Christofer Sundberg told the site that the game would be a PSN release, emphasising that the studio has two bigger projects in development that are still a way off. Our PSN project will be announced in a month or...
If the debut trailer wasn't a big enough hint that Final Fantasy XIII's going dark in its next iteration, perhaps comments made by Square Enix's top-bods Yoshinori Kitase and Motomu Toriyama will convince you
The duo's insisted to Dengeki Magazine that Final Fantasy XIII-2 will be much darker than the previous game, teasing that some characters will return with major and unexpected changes"..
Yeah, yeah, you might well have already seen the Final Fantasy XIII-2 debut trailer -- but have you seen it in English? No? Didn't think so
Better hit the ol' play button then. The music at the end of this trailer is ay-may-zing by the way.
Final Fantasy Agito XIII is no more
It is now Final Fantasy Type-0. Re-confirmed for a summer release this morning at a Japanese press conference, Square Enix has also released a new trailer for the game which has inevitably leaked onto the 'net. See the results for yourself after the jump. If you want a quick synopsis of the trailer: it looks like a Final Fantasy game. Surprise!
Final Fantasy XIII-2 was only announced in Japan this morning, but Square Enix has already taken to the PlayStation Blog to confirm the game will release in Western regions "next winter"
While the period is a little shaky, we're taking that to mean anywhere from late-December to March. Presumably it'll be closer to the latter. In addition to the tentative date, the game's debut trailer has leaked..
Despite being dedicated a whopping seven-minute trailer, the latest Final Fantasy Versus XIII footage doesn't really tell us much more than we already know
The combat looks suitably Kingdom Hearts-ish — a trait anticipated for a game coming from Tetsuya Nomura. There's plenty of flash and bang to the gameplay, as the protagonist runs across an exploding Tokyo skyline. Also, yes, the haircuts are..
PlayStation Portable title, Final Fantasy Agito XIII, has gone through a name-change according to information seeping out of Square Enix's Japanese press event this morning
The game will be renamed Final Fantasy Type-0 and will ship on two UMDs when it launches in Japan this Summer.
The impact of a Final Fantasy announcement seems a little diminished after the relatively disappointing Final Fantasy XIII, but make no mistake, this is still huge
At their conference in Japan, Square Enix has just confirmed that Final Fantasy XIII-2 will launch this year (2011) in Japan. The game will be directed by Motomu Toriyama. Few details are known about the game, though it will mark the..
What a downer to start a Monday morning on
We woke flowing with energy, but Crystal Dynamics has just kicked the wind out of our sails. Tweeting about the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot, global brand director Karl Stewart has revealed that the brilliant Keeley Hawes will not be returning to voice Lara in the new game. It all started when Stewart Tweeted: Still on the lookout. Shes out there, I..
A domain registration has got the Internet hot with debate regarding a potential Final Fantasy XIII sequel
Followers of Square Enix's long-running RPG franchise will know not to take note of the ludicrous numbering system the publisher employs for its mainline product, as evidenced by the domain itself. The company recently founded the website www.finalfantasy13-2game.com. Final Fantasy XIII-2..
The ridiculously titled PSP brawler, DISSIDIA 012 [duodecim] FINAL FANTASY, has had a new character added to its roster according to Japanese magazine Shonen Jump
Final Fantasy X's Yuna will join the fight as a playable character. Square Enix has also confirmed that the first run of duodecim will include an additional costume for Tifa. The publisher recently employed a similar tactic with PSP..
Intentional or not (we think it's probably intentional), there's a definite survival horror vibe to these first Tomb Raider shots released by Square Enix this afternoon
Lara looks beaten, bloody, and much less super-woman than we've seen her before. In the screenshot above we see her scrambling across the ground, obviously a lot less glamorous than before. This excites us. We're done with Lara's..
We always follow the same cycle whenever we play a Tomb Raider game
We load it up, watch a few cut-scenes, wander around the world and feel extremely happy. The tutorial levels teach us all the mechanics and we feel stoked about the rest of the game. About an hour later, we hit a brick wall. As we enter an enormous room, the camera zooms out and pans across an enormous maze of poles, ledges and..
Chalk up another PlayStation 3 compilation package slated for release in the new year
Crystal Dynamics' global brand director, Karl Stewart, just put an end to speculation, confirming the existence of a Tomb Raider "Trilogy" package due for release on the PlayStation 3 next year. The pack's rumoured to include Tomb Raider Legend, Anniversary and Underworld, though Crystal Dynamics are..
With the fourth quarter of 2010 evaded due to the might of Call Of Duty: Black Ops, it's now time for the Q1 2011 left-overs to leap-frog each other
Deus Ex: Human Revolution's the first game to falter, dropping its first quarter launch in favour of Square Enix's new fiscal year (which runs from April 1st, 2011). Apparently the delay will allow Eidos Montreal to give the game another coating of..
Final Fantasy XIV is out on the PC but it has had a far from successful launch
The game's been plagued by interface issues and general complaints from users, prompting Square Enix to extend the game's "free" period beyond the game's launch. In fact, the game's been received so poorly that Square Enix are currently restructuring the development team in order to fix it. Hiromichi Tanaka has..
Square Enix has slapped juicy spring release dates on The 3rd Birthday and DISSIDIA 012 [duodecim] FINAL FANTASY in Europe
The two titles were always planned for a 2011 release in Europe, but now we've got specifics. Spring sounds good to us. We're all over both titles.
Whether you think she looks cool or like a bloodied version of Ruud Van Nistelrooy, the new Lara Croft is here to stay
That's because Crystal Dynamics has spent the past few years creating a brand new Tomb Raider adventure, one which hopefully propels the franchise back to its former glory. The game was officially announced yesterday as part of GameInformer's cover reveal, but now eagle-eyed NeoGAF..
Y'know what franchise has needed a reboot for a long, long time? Tomb Raider
Y'know what franchise is getting a reboot after a long, long time? Tomb Raider. That's right, Square Enix has announced a new Tomb Raider game called, well, Tomb Raider. It's an origin story too, and it looks kinda awesome. "Forget everything you knew about Tomb Raider," said Darrell Gallagher, head of..
Continuing the trend of "every video game must have a collector's edition", Square Enix has announced a special package to go alongside the release of next year's Deus Ex: Human Revolution
The beefed up package includes the game, a behind-the-scenes DVD, a motion graphic novel and a 40-page comic ma-jig. Square's also announced pre-order bonuses including a bonus mission and special shot-gun for..
The PlayStation Portable's Parasite Eve spin-off, The 3rd Birthday, is finished according to the Final Fantasy Agito XIII's director, Hajime Tabata
The lead's revealed that the entirety of The 3rd Birthday team has turned their attention to Agito, presumably seeking a launch at some point during our life time (or perhaps before the PSP2). Siliconera's revealed via Tabata's Twitter account that the..
Are you still playing Lara Croft and the Guardian Of Light? It's actually a really good game, but with the release of Call Of Duty: Black Ops, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood and the imminent arrival of Gran Turismo 5, chances are you've relegated Lara Croft's tight tushy to the side-lines
That's a shame, because Crystal Dynamics has finally released the patch that makes Lara Croft's co-operative..
Square Enix has confirmed a January release date for Feelplus' third-person shooter, Mindjack
The game's due in North America/Europe on the 18th/21st of January. Japan will get it a little later on the 27th January. Honestly, we know very little about this game, so let's read the press-release together shall we? "Square Enixs new near-future Third Person Action-Shooter offers a unique..
Square Enix has dropped us a new trailer for next year's Deus Ex: Human Revolution

"A survivor is born
" It's not much to go on, but the phrase and artwork teased in the latest issue of GameInformer are sending Tomb Raider fans bonkers. The image, which shows a ship wreck, is thought to be connected to the leaked Tomb Raider plot which saw Lara crashed onto a "mysterious and remote island hidden off the shores of Japan." The new game's widely believed to be a..
Square Enix -- who are bizarrely handling publishing duties on Call Of Duty: Black Ops in Japan -- have confirmed that certain elements of the localized first-person shooter will be cut in order for the title to see release
This includes Nazi references, as well as a particularly brutal interrogation scene. The game's due worldwide next week. Get hype.

For as much dancing around the issue as Square Enix did, the original Parasite Eve games were always going to come to the PlayStation Network
Now there's a date placed on the re-releases. The first game in the franchise will hit the Japanese PlayStation Store on November 4th, with the sequel following on November 18th. Both will land plenty of time...
It's been on the cards for a long time
IO might have tried their hand at some different titles - notably Kane & Lynch, though who could forget the surprisingly good Mini Ninjas? - but a new Hitman's always been on the cards. It sounds like Agent 47's voice actor, David Bateson, might finally have spilled the beans. Speaking in an interview with TheGamingLiberty, Bateson mentioned the fifth game..
So you're telling us just after we bid upwards of £10 for a retail copy of Parasite Eve II, the franchise is set to head to the PlayStation Network (presumably at half the price)
Brilliant. We should have known, there's been mumblings about bringing the classic PlayStation horror franchise to the PS3's Store for some time now; but it looked like...
Square Enix has pledged a Q1, 2011 release for The 3rd Birthday in the West
That means the game could drop anywhere between Januaray and March next year. The game is the spiritual successor to the Parasite Eve franchise. There's a new(ish) trailer after the jump.

Heaven forbid Square Enix should want programmers with experience of next-generation platforms to work on Final Fantasy Versus XIII
According to the Internet, Square's job listing - which specifies development experience on a PS3, or XBOX 360 package title" - means the once exclusive PlayStation 3 title must be going multiplatform. Of course right? Because they should only be employing folks..
Square Enix has been in a tussle with YouTube all day trying to pull these Fabula Nova Crystallis trailers that debuted at TGS last month
For some reason they don't want people to see their awesome looking games. Whatever, we've found a YouTube link that works. If it gets pulled down, you'll know why. So let's talk: both Final Fantasy Agito XIII and Final Fantasy Versus XIII look amazing. The..

In an interview in Final Fantasy XIII's Ultimania Omega guide, produced Yoshinori Kitase declared his interest in continuing the FFXIII story. "I'd like to at some point make a story..
We are not massive Parasite Eve fans
We are not massive PSP shooter fans. But something about Square Enix's The 3rd Birthday has always held our attention. That's why we were pretty disappointed when Square decided not to release the game's Tokyo Game Show trailer. Why wouldn't they? Silly. Whatever. It's up now. And as you can see, the game looks rather good. The shooting looks similar to a Syphon..
Square Enix's Hajime Tabata has revealed that the publisher are currently "making adjustments" to make the PSN re-releases of Parasite Eve 1 and 2 a reality
Pssst - they're going to happen. Still, he was keen to douse the jubilant rapture of his followers - following up: Please wait until it has been finalized and formally announced. We bet you...
Sit and digest the new Dissidia game's title for a second - DISSIDIA 012 [duodecim]: Final Fantasy
We don't think we're exaggerating when we say this is truly the worst name for a video game ever conceived. But then, we expect nothing less from the publisher who puts the 13th iteration of their franchise under the "Fabula Nova Crystallis" banner. Cut it out Square. It's dumb. Not so..
In January, Square Enix are set to hold a press conference in which they will formally reveal Final Fantasy Versus XIII and Final Fantasy Agito XIII
As exciting as both those titles are, Versus XIII's director, Tetsuya Nomura, reckons the event will also boast "other surprises". There are Dissidia characters we will announce at the conference, and we also have a number of other..
The first ever Final Fantasy Versus XIII gameplay footage has leaked out of TGS, and it might be grainy and off-camera, but it still looks amazing
Ok, so it's hard to really tell the intricacies of the graphics engine, but going by this off-camera footage we're going to assume it's amazing. There looks to be a pretty impressive draw-distance. The combat, however, looks less exciting. It's hard to..
Square Enix has dated their spiritual successor to the Parasite Eve franchise, The 3rd Birthday, noting a December 22nd Japanese release date for the PlayStation Portable shooter

In Japan, you will not see parts of human beings been blown apart in Call Of Duty: Black Ops
