Final Fantasy: Record Keeper mobile game brings back characters from the past

Final Fantasy: Record Keeper, a new title in the long-running fantasy series, will feature protagonists and environments from past releases, Square Enix announced. The company is currently accepting pre-registration for the upcoming release, which will give those pre-registered users five Mythril at the game's launch. Record Keeper tells the story of a boy named Apprentice who is sent into the worlds of memories that have been sealed away within paintings. Apprentice will relive these memories from earlier Final Fantasy games, including Zanarkand, the big bridge and the Northern Cave. The game will also feature protagonists from earlier games including Final Fantasy 3's Luneth, Final Fantasy 7's Cloud Strife and Final Fantasy 9's Zidane Tribal, who can all be added to your party by...


Comic creator, Google doodler creates zine take on Tomb Raider, Spyro, Final Fantasy

Illustrator, comic creator and Google doodler Sophia Foster-Dimino is selling off the remnants of the zines she created for GamyerX. You can pick up a three-pack for $1 each. Foster-Dimino, who also created one of the designs for the GaymerX badge, said she whipped up the six-page creations as a sort of icebreaker for last weekend's show. "Though I make games as a hobby, I'm mostly an illustrator, and I wanted to have these on hand as an icebreaker when meeting new people," she said. "I picked late-90s games as a theme because I wanted to spotlight something lighthearted and nostalgic. There was a lot of extremely important discussion going on at the convention about serious issues in the games industry, but these zines helped me bond with a few people about the fun stuff that got us...


Final Fantasy Explorers coming to Nintendo 3DS in Japan this winter

Final Fantasy Explorers, a new entry in the long-running Final Fantasy series, is coming to Nintendo 3DS in Japan this winter, Nintendo announced during today's Nintendo Direct conference. In Final Fantasy Explorers, up to four players can select a job class, basically a unique combat style, and set out together exploring the in-game world and completing quests. Players will run up against Summons, powerful creatures that have made appearances in various Final Fantasy games spanning the franchise. The game will allow for connectivity through local wireless for ad-hoc multiplayer, or online via Wi-Fi connection for faraway friends.

Final Fantasy 14 is finally getting same-sex marriage

Final Fantasy 14 developer Square Enix is at long last bringing same-sex marriage to the massively multiplayer game, two years after first confirming it was under consideration. Director and producer Naoki Yoshida confirmed the new addition during a live streamed E3 developer talk, stating same-sex relationships will become available in the next patch. Speaking via translator, Yoshida said: "People within Eorzea will be able to pledge their eternal love and or friendship in a ceremony of eternal bonding. And this will be open to people regardless of race, creed, and gender. Two players...if they want to be together, in Eorzea, they can-through this eternal bonding ceremony." "We discussed it," he added, "and we realized: within Eorzea, why should there be restrictions on who pledges...


The state of the 3DS and PlayStation Vita at E3

While the spotlight at E3 2014 will shine mostly on home console releases, both Nintendo and Sony still have handheld devices to consider. Conferences and showfloor booths will be filled with new and recently revealed AAA experiences for the PlayStation 4, Wii U and Xbox One, but the Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita are still making their presence known at this year's expo. The major handheld title in Nintendo's catalogue is Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS. The Wii U version will likely receive the bulk of attention — the already announced tournament and chance to play at Best Buys during E3 certainly indicate that. Nintendo hasn’t yet moved the game from its announced summer release window, however, so the handheld version should play some role in the Nintendo Digital Event. The P...

E3 2014: What we probably (and definitely) won't see this week

The past month or so has been rife with announcements that certain games and companies will not have a presence at E3 this year. From highly-anticipated titles announced almost eight years ago to high-level executives sitting it out to take it easy, here's what you probably won't, and definitely won't, see at E3. Absence confirmed Final Fantasy 15 and Kingdom Hearts 3: These two Square Enix role-playing games are earning mystical unicorn status by virtue of being announced too early and then failing to appear at E3 year after year. We got some information at last year's expo, where Square announced both would come to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. But earlier this week, producer Shinji Hashimoto told Famitsu that neither game would have a presence at E3 and more details on both games...


We mapped our past: Our readers share their favorite hand-drawn video game maps

We asked for your maps, and you sent them in. Sometimes with a story. Here are a few example. "Saw your article about hand drawn game maps. I still have a duotang of Final Fantasy 1 maps I drew as I played the games back in the 90s," one reader said. "I mapped most of the major dungeons/shrines." My favorite part of this map is that I had to look up the word "duotang." The next e-mail was long, but it's a story worth telling. "My sister and I didn't always play well together, we had very different personalities and it didn't always mix well while playing pretend. But we did play the heck out of the Quest for Glory series, and were somehow able to do it together, as a team. That series, and Commander Keen, was our first exposure to video games as a whole, so we had no idea the...

Final Fantasy concept art raises money for Phillippines typhoon relief

An auction of concept art from Final Fantasy 10 and 10-2, recently exhibited at a Los Angeles-area gallery, has contributed $40,000 to help children's relief efforts in the Phillippines, still recovering from a devastating typhoon in November. Square Enix announced the donation on Thursday. The art director for Final Fantasy 10/10-2 HD Remaster, which launched in April, noted that the game portrayed a disaster, partly inspiring the decision to sell the art and send the proceeds to the Typhoon Haiyan recovery. "While we normally write stories that are about saving the world, I wondered if there was anything we could do through our games to share the pain felt by those affected," said Yusuke Naora, the art director for the original Final Fantasy 10. The art as on display at Gallery...
