15 Years Later – Revisiting Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within [Movie Review]

April 4, 2016 |

FFSpiritsWithinHeader

Over the weekend I got the idea to go back and watch Final Fantasy: Spirits Within, probably because I had been playing the Final Fantasy XV Platinum demo (and learning about the CGI movie that will accompany the full game’s release). Written in part by Hironobu Sakaguchi (Director of many Final Fantasy games), you have to wonder, did the movie age well? How does it stand on its own, more than a decade and a half later?

Square-Enix 16-bits video recap of the first two Final Fantasy XIII

January 29, 2014 | | 4 Comments

A little earlier today, Square-Enix issued a brilliant Youtube video (using a game engine similar to the one for Final Fantasy VI) that recaps in 8 minutes the story of both Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy XIII-2, just in time for Lightning Returns, a game that will be out in less than two weeks.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII Demo Impressions

January 22, 2014 | | 3 Comments

I had the chance to download and play the (short) Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII demo that was released on PSN yesterday. Here are my impressions on the demo of the game that will end the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy.

One of the first thing that I noticed is that the game name is not Final Fantasy XIII-3, which would have been expected to follow the previous games name structure. The game is called Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, the main heroine of the FFXIII trilogy, and lets you know that she will be the only playable character.

The demo shows a segment that seemed relatively advanced in the story, even for me who has completed both FFXIII and FFXIII-2, so I did find that the story was a little confusing: Snow (Lightning’s long friend) is now an enemy and the demo’s opening cutscene starts with those two having a fight to the death.

Agni’s Philosophy | Final Fantasy Realtime Tech Demo

July 6, 2012 | | 5 Comments

In my bumblings around the internet I found this, so have done a little research. This is a showcase of Square Enix’s ‘Lumionous Engine’ which was created for “next generation quality games”. The video shown is supposedly real time rather than pre-rendered which if true is very exciting, I also wonder if by ‘next generation’ Square means consoles or simply game quality over the next year or so?

I understand that this was shown at E3 but frankly I missed it, even when trawling through various E3 trailers, so this post is just incase any of you guys missed it too! Check out the video after the jump.

At E3 2006 Square Enix announced three new titles that would be added to the Final Fantasy series, which were Final Fantasy XIII, Final Fantasy Agito XIII, & Final Fantasy Versus XIII. Originally Final Fantasy XIII was suppose to be a PS3 exclusive, but then later announced for Xbox 360 which surprised many fans. Final Fantasy Agito XIII was intended to be Mobile game for phones, but now is currently under development for the PSP, and was renamed Final Fantasy Type-0.
