    In a recent Mistwalker broadcast, Hironobu Sakaguchi announced that he's planning on opening a new development studio. For right now he's thinking about Dawnwalker as the name and plans to open the studio in the Roppongi section of Tokyo, Japan. He went on to state that his studio are going to recruit a lot of staff for this new development studio. Hironobu Sakaguchi was a former employee of Square Enix and created the Final Fantasy series. He made a recent appearance at Square's Final Fantasy XV Uncovered Event back in March.

    Final Fantasy XV has been getting a lot of attention at this year's E3 and today we take another look at the game's airship. The game's airship was first revealed at the Uncovered event back in March, very briefly at the end of a trailer. Now, we have an extensive look at this transforming, flying car.



    What's notable about this car is that it's different from the Regalia that's been shown in all the other videos. The carship has a more rounded build with sharp edges. Either the Regalia will be upgraded to fly through the game's campaign (likely by Cid) or the player will obtain a new version of the Regalia through the journey. We can see that the transition from ground to air is seamless and that the Regalia has parts that extends further when going airborne. The flight speed doesn't seem as fast compared to other FF games, but the other games were on a world map where the airship was larger than many structures on the map while this game has a more realistic scale by being open ...

    Final Fantasy XV made an appearance at this year's Microsoft press conference today and the demonstration this time around is a boss fight against the summon Titan. This demo honestly made the game look very rough. The battle looked negatively chaotic with camera jump and angles that obscured your vision, not to mention the stream repeatedly took third person shots of the gameplay. When Noctis was clearly visible on screen, Ignus, and the others weren't. There wasn't indication of damage infliction either. This demo was not impressive and hopefully Square Enix has something better to show for the game this week.

    What's Wrong with Final Fantasy X?
    [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/Q70Fgvn.jpg[/IMG]

    I've recently been playing the Final Fantasy X HD Remaster on the PlayStation Vita. And by “playing” I mean I've been vaguely paying attention in between save points before I go and do something else. I was much younger when I first played X and it was my third FF game total, following two games that would become two of my three favourite games ever. So could it hold up against these other Final Fantasy games that made me fall so deeply in love with them? The answer is actually yes. While I didn't love it quite as much, it's still a game I got swept up in and thoroughly enjoyed. Since then I have replayed it many times leading up to this latest playthrough. This time though, it seems the honeymoon phase is over. I still love Final Fantasy X in a familiar sort of way and I can appreciate it's good qualities, but after so many years together, it seems the negatives that I previously ignored are making themselves more apparent. Especially since I've been seeing other games from all genres, and seeing what else the world of gaming has to offer. Here are the things Final Fantasy X does that I don't remember it doing while we were dating. ...

    The lovely folks at Square Enix have just treated us with a brand new trailer for Kingdom Hearts 2.8! In the trailer, we are presented with in-game footage of Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance in glorious HD, as well as Birth By Sleep 0.2: A Fragmentary Passage. The new graphics in the latter look particularly good, with Aqua's adventure using the new engine that will be the basis for Kingdom Hearts III.

    The last segment of the trailer is devoted to Kingdom Hearts χ: Back Cover, the movie version of the recently released smartphone game that takes place at the very beginning of the Kingdom Hearts timeline. We get to hear a lot of cryptic conversations between new, hooded characters called the Foretellers, as well as some dramatic scenes. The film itself looks gorgeous and I can't wait to see what this is all about!

    But perhaps the most ...

It's also being reported that when people pre-order the "Day One" edition of the game, they will have access to a Sephiroth summon. The game is set for release in North America on October 25, and in Japan and Europe October 27 and 28 respectively on the Playstation 4 and Vita systems. ...

    The wait has been long, but the time has finally come! Final Fantasy XII has finally been confirmed for an HD rerelease, and it's the Zodiac Job system version!

    The announcement came in the form of a teaser trailer (linked below) that showcases the game's improved HD visuals. The characters and environments are looking better than ever!

    According to various sources (neogaf forums), we can expect more than just a simple graphical update. As this version of the game will be based on the Japan-only International Zodiac Job System release, we can expect all of the extra features from that game, including a Job System, turbo mode, and a choice between Japanese and English voices, both of which are getting enhanced for the HD version. The soundtrack is also getting a remaster (is this what Arnie Roth spoiled us on?), and you will be able to switch between the original and rearranged soundtrack, just ...
