Final Fantasy XV: A Series of Constant Reinvention - “If it’s not new, it’s not Final Fantasy.” According to World of Final Fantasy director Hiroki Chiba, speaking with Gamer Escape earlier this year, this is the attitude that Final Fantasy series creator Hironobu Sakaguchi strove to work by. And it’s a creed that the various teams around Square Enix responsible for the continued development of the brand have maintained to this … Continue reading Final Fantasy XV: A Series of Constant Reinvention
Final Fantasy XV: The Latest Reinvention - As we discussed last time, the Final Fantasy series is one that has rarely stood still or grown complacent.

Can Post-Launch Support Go Too Far? - The hot news today has been the announcement of the Final Fantasy XV: Royal Edition, which not only features the base game and all of the Season Pass content, but also adds a number of additional elements to the mix that some may argue should have been in the game in the first place. This … Continue reading Can Post-Launch Support Go Too Far?
