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...

Pre-Order Old School RPG I Am Setsuna and Get Some Lovely PS4 Themes

Winter's coming

Square Enix has revealed that those who pre-order I Am Setsuna via the PlayStation Store will nab two dynamic themes. As you can see from the images that we've embedded, one depicts a snowy night, while the other showcases a bright but still snowy day. Unsurprisingly, both themes look rather lovely. If you haven't been keeping up...

Square Enix RPG Adventures of Mana Stealth Releases on PS Vita Today

Life is just a fantasy

No doubt a nice little surprise for some of you: Adventures of Mana has hit the PlayStation Store today on Vita in Europe with, as far as we know, zero warning from publisher Square Enix. The 3D remake of Game Boy classic Final Fantasy Adventure, it's a relatively simple action role-playing game that's cute and colourful...

Review: Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness (PS4)

Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness (PS4)

Lacking integrity?

Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness gets off to a bad start. Text-based tutorials greet you from the off, and you're quickly shuttled from one place to another with very little reasoning or context. Early on you'll realise that this game wants things to move quickly, and this only becomes clearer as you progress through the...

High-Definition Kefka Makes Us Desperate for Dissidia Final Fantasy on PS4

As evil as ever

When it comes to Final Fantasy villains, people are quick to reminisce about the likes of Sephiroth and Seifer, but those who dabbled in the majesty of the main series' final 2D instalment will always jump at the chance to remind fans of Kefka, the deliciously devilish antagonist of Final Fantasy VI. The ruthless killer clown may...

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...

E3 2016: This Is the Best Final Fantasy XV Video You'll See at E3

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...

E3 2016: Final Fantasy XV Has an Optional Turn Based Battle Mode

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...

E3 2016: There's Another Final Fantasy XV Game Coming to PS4

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...
