Go on a sniping rampage in Hitman Sniper

Square hasn’t been afraid to use the Hitman IP in fun and creative ways. Hitman GO was a critical success for doing something unique, and while Hitman Sniper isn’t on that same scale, it is still at least a ton of fun.

Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call has added the option to use buttons instead of the stylus. Game producer Ichiro Hazama told us in an interview at E3 today that he was thinking that fans that play 3DS while laying in bed might enjoy this alternative control method.

Square Enix reveals Rogue and Ninja classes for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn photo
Square Enix reveals Rogue and Ninja classes for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn
by Chris Carter

Today during Square Enix's Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn livestream, director Yoshi-P revealed a new class and a new job -- the Rogue and the Ninja respectively. The rumor was that new classes would be coming out in a future expansion, but Yoshi-P revealed that it would be "sooner" -- like, Patch 2.4 soon.

The Rogue will turn into a Ninja at 30, effectively morphing the base class into the full-on job. The two roles will also play a heavy role in the lore of the game, and their story will be justified within the confines of the game.

As far as mechanics go, movement speed will be faster as a default, and you'll earn less fall damage than other classes. Poison blades and dual wielding is confirmed, and it is a straight DPS class. Healers and other support are being considered for the new expansion.

Yep, I'm totally leveling a Ninja the day it comes out.

[Update: watch the FFXIV E3 livestream below!]

In anticipation of its new 2.3 patch that will arrive with the Primal Ramuh, Square Enix has dropped a new Primal-centric trailer that updates us on what's going on in Final Fantasy XIV's Eorzea. Although Ramuh is the main attraction, Garuda, Titan, and Leviathan are featured as well.

Expect more info on Final Fantasy XIV soon, as director Naoki Yoshida (Yoshi-P) is delivering his newest Letter from the Producer LIVE segment at 1PM PST. We'll have all of the new developments posted on Destructoid as they come.

I'm really hoping for another class or two -- ninja and chemist support please!
