Great to see Tactics represented
Square Enix is set to launch Dissidia Final Fantasy in arcades this week, and they've gone over the initial fourteen characters at launch, representing each main series game. Well, they're also doing an Apple-esque...
Only Ramza is left
She might not be well known at all in most Final Fantasy circles, but XIV fans will recognize Y’shtola the Conjurer. She was featured in the original build of XIV, before moving into the reworked A Realm...
Have you had enough Lightning yet? No one can, according to Square Enix, and she'll be representing Final Fantasy XIII in the arcade version of Dissidia, set to debut this week in Japan. As a note, she was already in Di...
'I'm gonna be a sky pirate'
I've always had a lukewarm relationship with Final Fantasy XII, and its protagonist, Vaan.
The only thing it really did for me was ape Final Fantasy XI's combat and add in gambits. Post-game content was pretty cool comp...
Tidus (Teedus) is kind of an awkward protagonist. X was the first fully-voiced Final Fantasy game, and Square really tried to force in some strange subplots and scenes meant to evoke emotion -- instead, they ended ...
His game was pretty great
Whenever the "best" Final Fantasy discussion comes up, VI is almost always near the top for a reason. Then you start getting into uncharted territory, with games like V and VII getting thrown around. But ...
Now PC players can finish the trilogy
The Final Fantasy XIII series has long been over for console players. Lightning Returns originally released back in 2013, and since then the fanbase’s attention has been split between Final Fantasy XIV, Final Fanta...
Coming in January
Final Fantasy Explorers will arrive in January on the 3DS, but in the meantime, you can take a look at this infographic to plan out your upcoming job choices. As someone who has been maining Paladin in Final Fantasy XIV for s...
Dengeki has straight gameplay, too. The Koei Tecmo-made Dissidia Final Fantasy is chilling arcades in Japan for a while, but could come to PS4 at some point.
Shantotto is an immensely popular Final Fantasy character among the fanbase, even though you don't hear about her often outside of it. After a modest start in Final Fantasy XI, she invaded other games, including the Dissidia...
Dissidia Final Fantasy footage
More Dissidia arcade trailers are out in the wild, and this one deals with the divisive Cloud Strife.
While a lot of people who have never played a Final Fantasy game are quick to dismiss him, I feel like I have to ...
In incredible detail
In the wake of last week's reveal of Final Fantasy's Cloud coming to Super Smash Bros., some people have managed to put together videos analyzing his introduction in great detail. We have two great examples for you.
'Tina' in Japan
Terra is often a fan favorite Final Fantasy character -- heck, anyone from VI is usually a top choice. What makes her especially badass in Dissidia is that she can Trance mid-fight, turning her into her Esper f...
Oh, and Bartz too
Final Fantasy IV is still my favorite entry in the series. Having replayed it every few years or so I wouldn't say nostalgia fuels that claim, as it still has a fantastic soundtrack and an amazing cast -- "Spoony Bard" ...
More Dissidia footage
You didn't think I'd miss the next Dissidia Final Fantasy Arcade video just because it was the weekend, did you?Following up the Warrior of Light and Firion, here's the classic Onion Knight. Hailing from Final Fanta...
l'Cie? More like l'Lame
I think one of my favorite pastimes, as I've come to realize over the years, is watching character-specific trailers for fighting games and brawlers. It may seem excessive for those of you who don't partake in these genres, t...
Not a drill
This is not a drill. Nintendo has announced the newest Smash Bros. character, and it’s only god damn Cloud Strife from Final Fantasy VII. The trailer up top shows both his FFVII and Advent Children costumes, as well as...
FF Explorers CollectorsEd
A nice collection of goodies!
Final Fantasy Explorers was shown off today during the Nintendo Direct, and man does it look great. It's coming to North America on January 26, 2016, and will come with all the DLC that's been released in Japan, for free...
I've always dug this series
A lot of people have been down on Dissidia in the past, but I see it as a spiritual successor of sorts to Square Enix's Ehrgeiz (good God that game could use a remake).
I'm a bit bummed, then, that the arcade versi...
As Goes Light, So Goes Darkness
Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward was a tremendous expansion, all things considered. It brought in a whole new storyline that was worth getting invested in, new classes, and tons of additional activities including a raid. B...
A Twitter poll wins out
The people have spoken -- Moogles will appear in Final Fantasy XV in one way or another.
When asked by way of a Twitter poll whether or not people wanted to see the lovable creatures in the game, the yeas outweighed the nays....
'Not at all,' says Uematsu
Nobuo Uematsu, the beloved composer of Final Fantasy VII (and the most titles in the series), will not be contributing to the soundtrack for Square Enix's upcoming Final Fantasy VII remake.
While speaking with French outlet&n...
Promoted from our community blogs
[Extra Life's Game Day weekend should be almost upon us when I get this promotion pushed out. So just in case you have some sort of trouble finding it in the body of the post, be sure to check out Walt's twitch channel on Nov...
Plus, a Pokemon-esque minion game
I haven't been playing Final Fantasy XIV as much as I'd like, mostly due to the content drought and other obligations. But that will change when patch 3.1 hits, which is set to bring a ton of new activities to the game.
Counting down until Halloween
Journal Entry #1:
We recruited a new member to our party today, but they're a little... strange. We found them hanging out in a swamp eating frogs. At first, I thought it was an enemy, as their appearance startled me, but they seemed eager to join our team and we need all the help we can get. Let's hope for the best!
Bros for life
Apparently, fans have been wondering why Noctis and the rest of his Final Fantasy XV crew are all dressed in black. They've taken to the official forums to voice their questions, and the game's director, Hajime Tabata, s...
Hey, buddy, finish one game first...
In a bit of fantasyland fun wherein the sky rains donuts, whisky is a state-provided utility and we're not all tumbling towards death and trying to make the ride as bad as humanly possible, Final Fantasy XV director Hajime Ta...
Playable Magitek Armor Terra
A new Final Fantasy is out this week and you won't be alone in not knowing or caring. Apparently the "too sexy" Mevius Final Fantasy already came out in June, so it's been a hot four months since the last one (not counting r...
If all goes well
Remember earlier this year when Square Enix assured fans that Lighting Returns was coming to PC at some point? No? Well it did. So there.
Producer Kitase Yoshinori has broken the silence again this week, noting that they...
Featuring Dale North and other people
Check out that preview below. Longtime Destructoid fans might find it familiar for a couple reasons. For one, Final Fantasy VII's main theme is one of the most recognizable pieces from the old role-playing game. It played in ...
