    Man At Arms Makes (And Destroys Things With) Sephiroth’s Sword, Masamune

    In Final Fantasy VII, they love their giant swords - and master swordsmith Tony Swatton loves making them! In Man At Arms, Swatton's already tackled Cloud's huge Buster sword, so - naturally - he had to complete the set with Sephiroth's Masamune. Seriously, though, Sephi and Cloud have to be compensating for something with these swords, right?

    Well, Gawrsh: Kingdom Hearts Creator Talks Marvel and Star Wars Content

    When suggesting a list of possible new worlds to include in Kingdom Hearts III a few weeks back, we intentionally left Disney's acquired IPs, Star Wars and Marvel, off the list -- partially to keep things a little easier for us, but also because we all kind of think that having that many disparate franchises in one game would make our little nerd brains explode. Of course, that didn't stop them from coming up in the comments section at least a dozen times. Well, if game creator Tetsuya Nomura has his way, you guys might just get your wish granted, because he's officially on record as saying that he would love to include them in KH3. Guess the ball's in Disney's court now.

    Forgotten Final Fantasy IX Side Quest Brought to Light 13 Years After Release

    Usually when players find previously unseen content in old games, it's through some weird glitch or hidden item -- it's not generally an entire side quest that gets discovered. Game completionists all over the world have got to be kicking themselves now, though, because somebody found a side quest in Final Fantasy IX that the entire Internet seemed to have forgotten all about up to now. And you thought you'd seen it all! Because you hadn't.

    The London Symphony Orchestra Takes on Final Fantasy

    We get that not everyone loves the symphony, but everyone loves Final Fantasy, right? Right. Of course they do. That's why we're so pumped about the London Symphony Orchestra's performance of Final Symphony. It's a collection of music from Final Fantasy VI, VII, and X, and it's one night only.

    Final Fantasy: All the Bravest’s All Colors and Noise, Hard to Say What Else

    Though we certainly can't get enough of them, video games like the Final Fantasy series aren't for everybody -- some people just don't appreciate the obsessive micromanaging that comes with the territory. Probably influenced by the closed-minded few that feel RPGs tediously plod along, Square Enix has just released Final Fantasy: All the Bravest for iOS devices everywhere: A game that brings everything you loved about the 16-bit generation of Final Fantasy games, but pumps it full of near lethal amounts of caffeine and amphetamines.

    Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII Trailer Hits the Interwebs, Cryptic and Flashy Per the Norm

    What Square Enix thinks you need more of in your life -- regardless of the fact that we've made it evidently clear otherwise -- is more Final Fantasy XIII. The trailer for the franchise within a franchise's latest installment, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, was initially posted on GameTrailers this morning before quickly being pulled. Since then, the video has been uploaded on YouTube in spades.

    The Final Fantasy 25th Anniversary Box Set Has All 13 Main Games

    At an event today, Square Enix announced a special Final Fantasy box set for the franchise's 25th anniversary. The most notable inclusion in the box set is not a special art book, or limited DLC, but all thirteen main games included in one box. Don't you worry, Final Fantasy X-2 and Final Fantasy XIII-2 are kept out of your awesome anniversary set.

    You Could Own This Rare Copy of Final Fantasy II for $50,000

    Anyone that has spent a considerable amount of time playing Final Fantasy titles likely knows that the numbering of the franchise was jumbled outside of Japan back during the NES and SNES days. This is mostly due to the fact that they skipped from Final Fantasy to Final Fantasy IV, but decided to go ahead and label the latter as Final Fantasy II. As it turns out, a working prototype for the game that was actually Final Fantasy II was made for the 1991 Consumer Electronics Show -- and it is up for sale on eBay.

    An Open Letter to Square Enix: Make a Final Fantasy Minigame Collection Already, Will You?

    Like I said last time, I only write these open letters when I feel the world is in immediate danger, and without real-life heroes sporting hair that towers into the sky but somehow tastelessly hangs over one of their eyes, sometimes I feel open letters are the only option. With the recent news that Square Enix will be cutting back on big in-house productions and with the re-release of a Final Fantasy VII PC version rather than a full-on remake, there's still one game Square Enix can make that will fit into their new smaller in-house production ideology, and still be pretty great.

    Pre-E3 Leak Shows Final Fantasy Versus XIII Upgraded to Final Fantasy XV

    When Final Fantasy XIII was announced, it was announced as part of a series of games set in the same universe, dubbed Fabula Nova Crystallis. Included in that series was FFXIII, a mobile game turned PSP game now called Final Fantasy Type-O, and Final Fantasy Versus XIII. Unveiled at E3 way back in 2006, FFvsXIII has been in development for around seven years now. It has basically become vaporware, so much so that the much maligned Final Fantasy XIII already had a direct sequel while FFvsXIII doesn't even have a demo. E3 is coming up next week, starting June 5, and thanks to what seems to be a leak, there are rumblings that Final Fantasy Versus XIII will be shown off in its new form as a full-fledged Final Fantasy XV. Check out the video leak below the break.

    Square Enix to Release Final Fantasy Trading Card Game

    Back in the day of the height of the Final Fantasy series, each game generally had some sort of fun mini-game, two of which, Triple Triad in Final Fantasy VIII and Tetra Master in Final Fantasy IX, were addictive collectible card games. By way of an announcement over on 4Gamer.net, Square Enix let the world know that a real life Final Fantasy trading card game is being developed, and will be released in Japan on February 25 of next year, published by Hobby Japan.
