While Final Fantasy XIII is most assuredly a current generation game from all we've seen development on it started before the PS3 (or the 360) were around. In two new books that Square Enix has published they're showing off a lot of the early work on the game and that work was all done on the PS2 with assets from previous Final Fantasy games.

You can check out the screens and artwork below. I know the cartoonish look on some of the characters is simply because it was easier to do while they were designing the kinks of the gameplay, but it does look pretty sweet. I think Zelda proved that a major shift in art style for a game series welcomes nothing but anger and derision no matter how good the game is, but this different look does make you wonder how different FF could be. It's cool to get a peek at how long this game has actually been in development and what the early plans were.

Final Fantasy Type-0 HD plays as well as ever

I adored Final Fantasy Type-0 when it first released on the PSP in Japan a few years back. It took me a whopping 75 hours to clear the game my first time, and while it undoubtedly had its fair share of problems (weird RTS sec...more

Final Fantasy XV screenshots from TGS are...uh

You've seen the trailer so now see the screenshots Square Enix handed me this morning at Tokyo Game Show 2014 for Final Fantasy XV. They're having a tailgating party. Car-b-que. It's a nice car, I guess. But the screenshots look nice! That battle one does something for me. The upcoming Xbox One and PS4 title has this new media, but that's the only thing you'll get out of TGS 2014. Hang in there.more
