The hero of the awesome action RPG Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII is here to remind Cloud Strife action figures that they’re not as original as they think.
The Zack Fair action figure stands about 11″ tall and comes with the Buster Sword that he eventually handed down to his traumatized sidekick.
Before its Diablo III art contest, DeviantART also held a competition for another major video game – Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. The contest called for the art community’s members to show their own take on the heroine Lightning.
Perhaps one of the most iconic creatures in the history of video games is Dragon Quest’s bulbous, smiley-faced Slime. I always thought he looked like a giant blue Hershey’s Kiss, or one half of an hourglass.
…at least the part of the game where she says she “runs around the land all day”. I’m no marketing expert, but I just personally find it weird for Square Enix to use 24-year old British singer Leona Lewis to promote Final Fantasy XIII.
As we previously mentioned, a Final Fantasy XIII touring bus patrolled around some areas of the United States, allowing people to test both the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the upcoming Square Enix RPG. An article at Sankaku Complex says that the publicity stunt generated both good and bad publicity, as some people have allegedly commented that the Xbox 360 version is graphically inferior to the one on the PS3.
Great, just what I needed – another reason to be jealous of the 1UP crew. It’s bad enough I don’t work for them, and that I don’t live in San Francisco. Now they’re being visited by something better than the tooth fairy, Easter bunny, and Santa Claus combined – the Final Fantasy XIII party bus?
This insane collectible out of Japan is truly for you die-hard Final Fantasy fanatics out there.
The set includes sixteen cans of Final Fantasy XIII “elixir” – which is some sort of Suntory lemon-flavored concoction with three-times the normal amount of caffeine and royal jelly.
Square-Enix have finally unleashed the latest edition of the Final Fantasy franchise in Japan. This is the first game of the main series that has been released for the PS3.
Final Fantasy XIII hit the shelves today in Japan where hundreds of people queued up in order to buy the game.
One world, one virus, one story, two different games. Nier, the product of Square Enix and Cavina, is getting a Western release… or at least half of it is. In Japan, Nier is two games: Gestalt and Replicant.
Move over, Puzzle Quest. You had a good run with the whole jewel-matching RPG hybrid, but the big boys have come to steal your throne… and rock our faces off. Gyromancer may be a little late (the Puzzle Quest folks already moved on to sci-fi), but it really doesn’t matter when this boat arrives.
Someone over at Square Enix must be a fan of Transformers. I say this because for some reason, all Final Fantasy’s classic “summons” now have alternate vehicle modes in Final Fantasy XIII. For example, Shiva is now summoned as two ladies who combine to form some sort of lesbian motorcycle.
While this story would automatically be ten billion times more awesome if giant Final Fantasy characters (in the flesh) took over LA using Bahamut and the combined power of zippers and hair gel, I’ve gotta say that the big posters are pretty cool in their own right.
Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles is certainly already among the best visual achievements we’ve seen with the Nintendo Wii, but the storyline and gameplay have been kept largely under wraps. We know a few key things: it’s pretty, there’s flying (lots of flying), and telekinetic powers are important.
Nintendo DS owners and RPG fans alike have been looking foward to Square Enix’s Blood of Bahamut since the game was first announced last year, and now a few incredibly lucky people (in Japan) are going to have a chance to get their hands on the game (in Japan).
There’s a lot going on in the Final Fantasy franchise lately. Whatever your preference, you can get it: retro remakes on the DS, retro originals on the Game Boy (in the past few years, at least), and the epic forthcoming Final Fantasy XIII.
Square Enix just had a big day in Japan, with details on the new Dragon Quest X announcement for the Nintendo Wii, and more on the slightly-older (and still unreleased) Dragon Quest IX, which is slated for the DS.
