The Week In Games: Final Fantasy Fighters Unite

Illustration for article titled The Week In Games: iFinal Fantasy/i Fighters Unite

Square Enix’s fighting game joins the mix this week but not much else.

There was a time when I would have bought anything I could get my hands on that sported the words “Final Fantasy.” Ten years ago the prospect of a Square fighting game that wasn’t Ehrgeiz would have made my jaw drop. And it did. The first Final Fantasy Dissidia came out in 2008. A decade later on consoles wedged in-between a million other fighting games including Dragon Ball it’s a harder sell. Or at least it would be if logic was involved or mattered at all.


I guess it’s time I admit, even as an adult, that I will always find anything with the Final Fantasy name involved irresistibly intriguing. It’s a slow week otherwise, so if you haven’t already dip into Iconoclasts or Celeste. It’s not even spring yet and some of the best indie games have already graced us with their presence.

I didn’t even get more than an hour into FFXV. This coming from someone who played 20 hours of FFVII straight and put 100+ hours into XII. Final Fantasy just lost me.
