TGS 2015: Game Boy's Final Fantasy Adventure Gets a PS Vita Remake

Game Boy's Final Fantasy Adventure Gets a PS Vita Remake

Oh Mana

Final Fantasy Adventure, a Game Boy title that originally released all the way back in 1991, has a curious history – namely because it's not technically a Final Fantasy game at all and is actually the predecessor to Super Nintendo classic, Secret of Mana. Either way, a remake is in development for the PlayStation Vita and smartphones,...

Mine and craft in Square Enix's spin-off

Japan's biggest game of 2016 may be one that you least expect, as Dragon Quest Builders is shaping up to be every inch the commercial smash.

Just Cause 3 Looks Explosively Bonkers in This PS4 Trailer

Off the chain

Just Cause 3 received a suitably insane, and mercifully brief, trailer at Sony's pre-Tokyo Game Show conference today. The clip sees series protagonist Rico Rodriguez performing all manner of perilous and irresponsible acts - such as back-flipping off a car which is conveniently falling into a chasm. In truth, there's not a whole lot...

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided's Getting Torn Apart for Its Ridiculous Pre-Order Strategy

YouTube trailers blasted

We feel a bit sorry for the team at Eidos Montreal - the studio behind Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. They're creating what looks to be another solid entry in the franchise, but the game's been overshadowed by its recently revealed pre-order strategy. For those that are out of the loop, publisher Square Enix is adopting a...

You drive me crazy

Final Fantasy XV may look like a game starring One Direction in the jungle, but you can't fault its car. The gorgeous black convertible otherwise known as Regalia may have the stupidest name this side of KITT in Knight Rider, but it has curves in all of the right places, and is perfect for cruising around coastal towns like the...

Well, doesn't this look like a pleasant surprise?

PS4's Final Fantasy VII Remake Sounds Like It Isn't Far into Development at All

"Please don't ask how far into development we are"

Right, so we reckon that if Final Fantasy XV comes out either late next year or early 2017, then Final Fantasy VII Remake will probably have to launch around 2020. Obviously we hope that we're exaggerating, but by the sounds of it, the game really isn't far into development at all. Speaking in...
