Final Fantasy VII released to iOS today with one big oddity

Today Final Fantasy VII hits the mobile platform with Square Enix' release on both iPhone and iPad. This game will be joined - sooner or later - by a new mobile app "Final Fantasy Portal". While a mash-up of the Valve-made classic first-person title and the classic RPG might seem like a dream made in fairyland, this app is instead a portal for all things Final Fantasy - card games and all. While this version of Final Fantasy VII (or Final Fantasy 7, if you prefer), is similar to the original, it includes just a few odd changes that make it a whole different experience.

FFVII: Re-imagined reimagines RPG  into 2D side scroller

While we patiently, very patiently, wait for the real, official, and final re-imagined and remastered version of Final Fantasy VII, we can while away the days, weeks, months, and maybe even years, with fan-fueled creativity. Or perhaps travesty for some. Bored with the low poly 3D of the original Final Fantasy VII title? Does the full 3D Advent Children film have you drooling for things yet to come?

Final Fantasy Type-0 HD lands on PCs August 18

Final Fantasy Type-0 HD lands on PCs August 18

As mentioned last month, Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, a title in the almost never ending franchise that started its life on the PSP, is coming to the PC. Back then, the announcement was missing a few crucial details. Little did we know that it was because we wouldn't really have to wait that long. Square Enix has just announced that the game arrives 18th of August. But even before that date, you can already pre-order your copy on Steam and get a few goodies, most of which, amusingly, isn't related to the game at all.

FF XIV for Macs pulled from sales, lengthy apology issued

Square Enix may have just launched its biggest update to Final Fantasy XIV, but what could have been an almost perfect release has been marred by performance issues on a single platform: Macs. Now while this may sound almost like the situation with Warner Bros. and Batman: Arkham Knight for PCs, Square Enix is doing something differently and, to its credit, perhaps more satisfying. Producer Naoki Yoshida has provided a rather detailed account of the blunder that happened and, unusual in this business, has taken sole responsibility for the fiasco.

Square Enix’s Final Fantasy VII to hit iOS later this summer

With E3 week still rolling out the big gaming announcements, Japanese developer Square Enix gave its presentation earlier today, revealing that the iconic RPG Final Fantasy VII will be coming to iOS before the end of this summer.

Final Fantasy Type-0 HD will have a PC port

Good news for Final Fantasy fans who are unfortunate enough not to have the latest gen consoles yet.

Square Enix made the announcement over at Computex though hasn't filled in many of the blanks. However, the fact alone that it will be available on Steam is enough to send hearts aflutter, even if the launch date is still months away at the very best.

Final Fantasy XIII now streams to iOS and Android in Japan

If you're any sort of a mobile gamer, you might have started jumping up and down before, or even after, reading that headline, but do try to calm down a bit for the details. Yes, it is true that, at least for Japanese smarpthone owners, the most recent, non-MMORPG, Final Fantasy game is indeed playable on their device, but that's not because the game has miraculously been ported to iOS or Android. This is all happening through the magic of game streaming and, is, therefore, quite limited in reach.

Final Fantasy Type-0 HD Review

Final Fantasy Type-0 HD Review

To suggest that Final Fantasy Type-0's international release was "long awaited" would be a gross understatement. The original game (pre-HD)'s demo was first released in August of 2011, back before the first whispers of an 8th-generation console release. Originally titled Final Fantasy Agito XIII for its non-HD PSP release, this game was eventually re-named Final Fantasy Type-0, so named for its original approach in battle in the Final Fantasy universe. Here we've got Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, a game that's been in development since mid-2012 for release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
