Final Fantasy director Tetsuya Nomura crafts an interesting take on Catwoman that looks like a Metal Gear villain

A few months ago we saw the Batman Play Arts Kai figure crafted by Final Fantasy character designer/director Tetsuya Nomura. Well he's at it again, and this time he crafted a new Catwoman figure. All in all she looks like a mixture of Jehuty from Zone of the Enders, a boss from a Metal Gear Solid game, and the Alien from Alien. I guess it's better than being half man, half bear, half pig.

Final Fantasy Explorers will not have 3D, will have Circle Pad Pro and New 3DS support

Final Fantasy Explorers will arrive soon in Japan, and it'll come with a few changes that aren't typically in 3DS titles. For one, it won't feature full 3D -- I'm kind of 50/50 on it myself, so I don't mind either way. The go...

Hot new screens from Final Fantasy XV and Final Fantasy Type-0 HD

Me? I'll take anything I can get from either game. I'm hype every single time something from the franchise comes down the line, so I guess I could be seen as somewhat unreliable when it comes to being fully critical. Oooh! Tw...

Final Fantasy Explorers feels like Crystal Chronicles meets Monster Hunter photo
Final Fantasy Explorers feels like Crystal Chronicles meets Monster Hunter
by Elliot Gay

It's become exceedingly easy in recent years to point the finger at any four player cooperative game in Japan and call it a Monster Hunter clone. I'm not particularly fond of this way of thinking. Despite my love of Monster Hunter (200+ hours in MH4), I think many of the various hunting action games have unique, interesting qualities that separate them from one another.

Perhaps that's why I had been so jazzed to check out Final Fantasy Explorers, Square Enix's first attempt to dabble in the hunting action genre. With a stable of classic monsters, jobs, and giant bosses in its long history, Final Fantasy seems like the perfect franchise to get a spinoff in the genre.
