Final Fantasy IX gets a surprise re-release on PlayStation 4

When it comes to the question of the best Final Fantasy game, the original PlayStation's Final Fantasy IX usually gets left out of the debate. Many will tell you either Final Fantasy VI or Final Fantasy VII are the best, with a few weirdos claiming that Final Fantasy VIII is actually at the top of the list, but there aren't many throwing their support behind Final Fantasy IX. Perhaps it's time to revisit the PlayStation classic with a fresh pair of eyes?

We expected Gamescom to hold its share of big gaming announcements, but one of the most surprising (and exciting) ones is the reveal that Final Fantasy 15 will be coming to PC. Announced by Square Enix during a special NVIDIA event, a PC version of the game had previously only been hinted at. It seems that the PC version of Final Fantasy 15 may very well become the definitive version, with NVIDA calling this port the "highest-end edition" of the game.

Tokyo RPG Factory’s LOST SPHEAR is a JRPG spin on a familiar plot

Although it has had its fair share of loyal fans and players all over the world, JRPGs, a genre that pundits argue is a misnomer, have recently experience a resurgence in popularity. That's partly due to the wealth of "retro" indie games as well as a sort of counter-culture against the graphically sophisticated but sometimes mind-numbing button-mashing of modern games. Sensing a potential lucrative market, Square Enix formed Tokyo RPG Factory to blend JRPG tropes with modern gaming systems, as can be seen with the studio's second title: LOST SPHEAR.
