The Week In Games: Say Hello To My Little Friend

Illustration for article titled The Week In Games: Say Hello To My Little Friend

Step aside Pokémon, there’s a new kid in town, and he’s got a big ass sword. A creature collecting game set in the Final Fantasy multiverse? Sign. Me. Up.

It’s been too long since the last Kingdom Hearts and I need another ridiculous spin-off derived from someone’s post-Final Fantasy VII LiveJournal fanfic like a dog need bones. Maybe it’s time we dispatched with the series proper once in for all and just acknowledged that the true future of Final Fantasy is in adorable adaptations of other beloved games.

I was excited enough for World of Final Fantasy to order the collector’s edition, but after playing the demo I’m kind of on the fence. The verbal tic of the mascot character in the dub is definitely not helping. I’ll probably still play it though. Otherwise the next big thing for me is the new Sword Art Online in a few weeks.
