The announcements didn’t stop there, though. Also, in 2019, Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy IX, Final Fantasy X and X-2, and Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age will all also be arriving on the platform.
That clear omission is bound to p*ss off the VIII Fanboys...

Resonance of Fate Rated For PlayStation 4 And PC In Germany

In addition to the new ratings of Resonance of Fate in Germany for PS4 and PC, we’ve been seeing some activity over at an official Twitter account of Resonance of Fate’s Leanne, which has been inactive since January 28, 2018, the day the game released in Japan.

Earlier tonight we reported that tri-Ace is going to announce a new game at Tokyo Game Show 2018, so there’s a good chance it could end up being a port or remaster of Resonance of Fate.

Speaking of JRPG, isn't Kingdom Hearts III out soon? I found these pretty good videos that refresh the incredibly not stupid at all story if anyone is interested. Very informative

No, that is not the appropriate reaction to watching both of those videos, especially the second one. Your heart is with the darkness now Blaxeky

Maf recently said something about mismanaging a brand but I think KH is pretty much the prime example of how 'not to' do sequels.

I'll probably play KHIII at some point for the fanservice (I love Toy Story) but I wish they'd had gone with a FF-style approach to story with this franchise, i.e. making every entry self-contained. Or like Zelda in that you always play as Sora with Donald and Goofy but everything around them changes and is unrelated to events in the past. The way it is now is just a major clusterfuck of ridiculous twists and plot points that has been around forever.

It never stops being hilarious that this game series has one of the most obtuse game plots out there, a game about Donald Duck and Goofy going on magical Disney adventures.

Like you've got Donald Duck quacking-talking at Sephiroth who wants to eat Cloud's dark soul or whatever the fuk, it's fanfiction.net stuff.

KHII played well tho so it has that at least.

Kingdom Hearts III boxart

Looks good, but

still looks better


III looks a bit busy with lots of colours and elements competing for attention

Yes, a bit too much going on but still rather tasteful. Age ratings and colourful boxes will mess it up anyway though, particularly the Xbox' green.

It's a shame VIII isn't coming to Switch

I've got in mind an interesting playthrough for it.

No levelling, don't fight anything except bosses and mandatory fights. Run away from everything and equip No Encounters when you get the ability.

The only way you're allowed to become more powerful is through draw points, item refining and Triple Triad.

Tbh it would probably make the game easier but would be interesting.

Hopefully it gets ported somewhere soon to a satisfactory standard.


Alliteration.

Big Hero 6 world, I'm done, pre-ordering this now.

That said I think those trailers are really bad with their cliché edgelord dialogue lines and whatnot that probably don't even make sense when you hear them in context. But everything looks so cool and it's ridiculous how close all those animated Disney/Pixar characters are to what they were in the movies. Rapunzel in particular.
