When you heard somebody talking about Final Fantasy XIV a few years back, you generally only heard negative things. After all, the first iteration of the game, or 1.0 as it is called nowadays, was a deeply flawed game. So flawed that a new team of developers led by Naoki Yoshida took over and eventually shut it down to be replaced with with A Realm Reborn (2.0), an almost complete rebuild. The game has been extremely successful since then, and with any successful MMORPG, expansions are imminent. Fast forward to now, almost two years since 2.0’s release, and the game’s first one: Heavensward (3.0) is out in the wild. Will this expansion send Final Fantasy XIV’s popularity toward the heavens? Or will it fall back to Earth (or Eorzea)? You’ll just have to click “Read More” to find out…

Remember that other title Square Enix unveiled during Sony’s Monday night E3 press conference? You know, the one that’s not the Final Fantasy VII Remake for PlayStation 4? Well we’ve got some more info about that other game, World of Final Fantasy.

In WoFF, you play as two siblings who, throughout the game will collect, raise and battle with various monsters from the Final Fantasy series, including cactuars, chocobos and behemoths. The game will use classic RPG elements coupled with the toy-like visuals, creating an experience that caters both to newcomers and series veterans. A new feature coming to the game is referred to simply as “stacking.” Through stacking, the player can adjust the siblings’ sizes to fit gameplay situations, something you see on display in the new batch of screenshots posted below.

World of Final Fantasy is releasing on PlayStation 4 and Playstation Vita in 2016.

Riding on the heels of last night’s announcement of a Final Fantasy VII remake (we’re still in awe ourselves), today’s E3 2015 conference for Square Enix brought us more developments for the PC to PlayStation 4 port of the game. If you recall, this iteration of the game was announced at the PlayStation Experience event earlier this year to luke-warm reception, mostly due to­­— well, that doesn’t matter now, does it?

After replaying last night’s trailer, Shinji Hashimoto, executive producer of the KINGDOM HEARTS series, took the stage to announce that the PC version of the game will be arriving on iOS devices this summer and PlayStation 4 this Winter. That’ll give fans both old and new two new ways to experience the adventures of Cloud and company before the eventual release of the remake.
