A story is currently flying around the Interwebs concerning a potential release of Final Fantasy IV: The After on Xbox Live Arcade. Apparently, there was a page on Microsoft Japan's Xbox Web site which confirmed the release, including an image and everything. The gaming Blogocube picked naturally went nuts. However, a little digging by our resident tipsters suggests it is more than likely a trap.

We received a tip this morning about how Microsoft Japan allows you to create your own game page, claiming that anything and everything would be coming to the Xbox 360. Super Mario Bros., Metroid, God of War -- whatever you could think of, you could spoof an official listing on Microsoft's own Web site. 

Sadly, however, neither the page that started this whole story nor the ability to create your own releases seem to exist anymore, so we can't tell what's up or down anymore. However, just be warned that the current stories regarding The After on XBLA reside on the most flimsy of ground.

Final Fantasy artist Yoshitaka Amano paints Child of Light art

I am endlessly excited for the old school JRPG-inspired Child of Light, which comes out April 30. PC and PlayStation (PS3/PS4 are Cross-Buy) players will also be able to buy a physical, deluxe edition of the game (currently only available for pre-order in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa), which comes with DLC, artwork, and a poster of Yoshitaka Amano's work, shown in the neat video above.more
