Alright, well, as near as I can figure, Square Enix said something about Final Fantasy XV and Nintendo Switch today at Gamescom. It was less than an announcement but more substantial than a routine “we’re thinking about it.” Here’s what happened.
Square Enix is making FFXV all adorable and pocket-sized with an iOS and Android take on the adventures of Noctis and his buddies.
Final Fantasy XV, a video game about male friendship and good hair, will come to PC in early 2018. The fifteenth mainline Final Fantasy, which came out in November 2016, was previously only available on PS4 and Xbox One.
On November 15, 2016, free-to-play MMORPG Chaos Saga launched in Japan. A day later, its service suddenly stopped after character design similarities between Chaos Saga and Final Fantasy XI were discovered. The company behind Chaos Saga has publicly apologized.
Square Enix’s long-running Itadaki Street series (basically a take on Monopoly) has a new game coming out to celebrate the 30th anniversaries of both Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest (though the latter’s 30th was actually last year). Its trailer sure is something.
Final Fantasy XV’s multiplayer beta went live today, and in it, you can hack-and-slash through a few short quests. You can also spend hours creating your very own avatar, adjusting everything from facial tattoos to, uh, lower jaw width.
Earlier this year, Square Enix revealed “muteki suits” (invincible suits) as an upcoming free download. Immediately, they were compared to Power Ranger costumes and soon scrapped. Square Enix has now released the new suits. They are scary.
It’s not clear why Final Fantasy XV, a game about the power of male friendship and good hair, is getting a multiplayer expansion. But it’s happening, it’s called Comrades, and next week you’ll be able to get a taste of it.
Big news for me today: Boss Fight Books has launched its fourth Kickstarter, and my upcoming book Final Fantasy V is part of it. Here’s an exclusive excerpt, discussing a bit about how this legendary role-playing game was made.
Last year, Lightning from Final Fantasy XIII was moonlighting as a Louis Vuitton model. Now in 2017, she’s back with another gig. This time, she’s selling cars in China.
Amirul Rizwan Musa, a 21 year-old entrepreneur from Malaysia, has spent over $41,000 on cosmetic surgery to look like Squall Leonheart, minus the scar. Can you see the resemblance?
The biggest threat to Eorza isn’t the Garleans, or some other villain that I don’t want to look up because I haven’t even finished Heavensward yet. It’s Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, which have been hitting Final Fantasy XIV since June and show no sign of stopping, according to the developers at Square…
You wouldn’t think that Fantasy Fantasy’s cacti enemies would have terrific tushies. Then again, you’ve probably never thought about their backsides.
Whether you’re visiting Ivalice for the first time or you’re already an expert at being Captain Basch fon Ronsenburg of Dalmasca, Final Fantasy XII can be an intimidating game. Fear not—we’ve got lots of tips.
One of the strangest features in Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age, which comes out today, is called the gambit system. This system allows you to write out a sequence of if-then statements, like “if you see an enemy, then attack it” or “if your HP goes below 100%, then use a Potion.” You can assign these gambits to…
In last year’s Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age trailer, it looked like we’d be stuck with Vaan’s spray-on abdominals. But now it seems like we won’t. Thank goodness for that!

After several hours playing Square Enix’s new Final Fantasy XII remaster, I can confidently say I like it. I can just as confidently say that I like it a lot more because I can fast-forward through it.
