Prince Noctis is Back!

11 Jun 2013 by Nightmare
The game you've been waiting for i.e. Final Fantasy Versus XIII has finally returned, but with some major changes. Instead of Final Fantasy Versus XIII, it is now called Final Fantasy XV which means that it is the next installment in the series. Also, it is no longer being developed for the PS3. The game will be available for both Playstation 4 and Xbox One which explains why Square Enix kept it under wraps before Sony and Microsoft announced their new consoles.

The trailer shown at E3 focuses on Final Fantasy XV's story and gameplay. From the dialogue it becomes evident the game is about a war in which the nation's crystal must be protected at all costs. Regarding gameplay, it can be seen that the User Interface is different from that of previous trailers. It is now more action oriented like that of Type-0.

In case the previous video wasn't enough, here's another one for you to enjoy...

Square Enix's Lineup for E3 2013

04 Jun 2013 by Nightmare
Square Enix has finally published its lineup for this year's E3.

Here's the list:
Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn (PC, PS3) - Playable
Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII (PS3, 360) - Playable
Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD (PS3, PSV) - Playable
Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD ReMix (PS3) - Playable
Deus Ex: Human Revolution -Director's Cut- (Wii U) - Playable
Thief (PC, PS4, XBO)

As you might have noticed Final Fantasy Versus XIII is missing from the list. Whether or not it will make an appearance this time round is a complete mystery. However, according to rumours, it should make its return as Tetsuya Nomura promised new updates on the game in "the warm spring". Also, starting from June 15th Square Enix will be selling a new perfume called "FINAL FANTASY Eau de toilette <Noctis>" which makes no reference to Versus XIII, possibly indicating a change of title.

Anyway, Yoshinori Kitase and Motomu Toriyama will be present at E3 to answer questions about Lightning Returns and Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD.

We'll keep you updated with any news and announcements made so stay tuned!
