Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts III Listed On Japanese XBOX Website

The Japanese XBOX website has added Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy XV to their listing of XBOX One games, complete with videos and screenshots we saw from last year’s E3. Both games have been described to be rather action-heavy and that the “specifications of next-generation” were utilised in development. The site’s description of FFXV boasts that its party battle system will be “more advanced” and be enjoyed “more strategically”.  Kingdom Hearts III on the XBOX site has been described [...]

Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call Confirmed For Western Release

Square Enix North America has just uploaded a brand new video on its YouTube channel, promoting a new title for the 3DS. And that game is Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call. That’s right, Square Enix has finally confirmed a Western release for the title this year. The trailer shows off new tracks (well, they’re actually old tracks that are new to Theatrhythm) including Figaro Castle from FFVI, and Someday The Dream Will End from FFX. Curtain Call will also feature [...]

“One Button to Rule Them All” – Square Enix Awarded Patent for Single-Button System

One distinctive characteristic of Square Enix RPGs such as Final Fantasy is their battle systems. With each installment comes a completely new or reworked system by which combat occurs. Even in titles that are not as well-received, Square Enix games regularly get praise for being able to keep this aspect of their games fresh. Yesterday, Square Enix was rewarded a US patent (seen here) for a single-button RPG battle system. It was submitted by Hajime Tabata, co-Director for the upcoming [...]

Hitman GO Launches Today

Oh thank god, thank god, thank god it isn’t free to play. Today Squeenix release their first mobile entry of the Hitman series, titled Hitman GO, for iOS. No, ‘GO’ doesn’t seem to stand for anything, I don’t get it either.  Still, with it coming at a (relatively) hefty price tag of $4.99 and with a claim of it being ‘difficult to master’, there’s actually quite a promise of quality with this one, it’s not a  cheap ‘social’ companion app for sure. Still, the Hitman games [...]

PAX East – Murdered: Soul Suspect Hands-on Impressions

Murdered: Soul Suspect is an upcoming action-adventure, detective-styled game developed by Airtight Games (published by Square Enix) in development for PC, PS3, Xbox 360, PS4, and Xbox One. During PAX East, I got the chance to sit down with the game and play about the first half hour of it. Murdered: Soul Suspect was definitely one of the best titles in attendance at PAX East. As something that I can only describe as a cross between Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective [...]

Square Enix’ School Girl Strikers: Are You Kidding Me. Squeenix Please

Last week Square Enix announced, hot on the heels of their public apology for sucking the last few years at RPGs, that they were making a “Light novel-styled RPG with an all-star voice cast.” Awesome. Good strategy, Squeenix. Go get ‘em. Now, it seems the big reveal is here: School Girl Strikers. OK. Awesome. PS3? Maybe next-gen? No? It’s… it’s an iPhone game? With in-game purchases? Square Enix, are you shitting me?

Make It So – Frozen in Kingdom Hearts III

[Make It So takes a look at our favorite games and suggests additions, subtractions, and areas to improve upon for the sequel or next entry in the series.] When Frozen hit theaters last winter, I gave it the cold shoulder (ha ha) and thought to myself, “Meh, I’m so over Disney.” I had been burned time and time again ever since the release of Up, Brave, and Tangled. None of Disney’s and Pixar’s ‘new-school’ animated movies were doing anything for [...]

Square Enix Collective Now Open for Submissions

Square Enix revealed its Collective project back in January, boasting a new platform for developers to garner support for their creative gaming ideas. Just two days ago, Square Enix revealed on the Collective site that they were ready to take the project to the next level and it is now open for full submissions from “industry professionals”. Developers’s submissions will be published on the site at the start of each week for exposure to critique and feedback before it is [...]

“The Truth Still Survives, But Only You Remember It” – Square Enix’s New Direction

Recently Square Enix made a statement explaining how the company had lost its focus. With the recent success of Bravely Default, they are renewing their dedication to games their fans want to play. To directly quote Yosuke Matsuda: “we basically want to go back to their roots and focus on the core audience.” As far as ‘facepalm’ announcements go, this one can be proudly accompanied by a resounding ‘duh.’ Yet despite the lateness of this realization, JRPG fans can also [...]

Drakengard 3 ESRB Rating Hints At Blood, Language, and Sex

While I don’t follow too closely, the ESRB rating decisions sometimes hint at interesting aspects of the game. Usually they’re superficial details that push the game towards one rating or another. A title I’m keenly interested in however was recently rated M and the ESRB’s description for Drakengard 3 makes me think the game will be everything I expected it to be. Their description can be read below: This is a role-playing action game in which players assume the role [...]
