6 New and Upcoming Releases to Watch for in the Expanding Final Fantasy XV Universe

Final Fantasy XV is rapidly approaching its first year anniversary, but that hasn’t prevented Square Enix from releasing more and more content under the umbrella that is the Final Fantasy FFXV Universe. So far the list is impressive in size, if not necessarily in quality. There’s a feature film, an anime series, mobile games, and even a novel. There’s pretty much something for everyone, which after all seems to be Square’s goal.

Fans Who Want to Cook Like Iggy Create a Final Fantasy XV Cookbook

“That’s it!” is a phrase that Final Fantasy XV fans know very well. And fittingly, it’s also the name of a FFXV fanmade cookbook. Final Fantasy XV came out in November 2016 to an array of eager fans. The game, 10 years in the making, has an epic plot line familiar to longtime players of the series, but the main draw of this installment is the four main protagonists and the bonds they strengthen over the course of the...

It is a lens through which we explore it.” —Rhianna Pratchett Log into Facebook, hop onto Twitter, skim the headlines, and one thing is clear: the world is on fire. Everyone seems to be posting about current events, a nonstop stream of news articles and opinions, personal anecdotes and memes. As they should be.

I Am Setsuna: A New Taste of the Old

While I am all for video games and their respective genres evolving and changing as long as it’s for the better, sometimes it can be hard not to want to play something that has a more “classic” feel. It could be because there is something to that classic style that’s been lost as...

A New World: Final Fantasy Live, Up Close, and Personal

One of my main fandoms is soundtracks, particularly video-game soundtracks. I have paid more attention to the score of any given game than almost all other factors since before I could remember. I have been closely following the evolution of video-game music through the years, not only how the technical capabilities have advanced but also, of more interest, how the very concept of video-game music has changed. Your grandma can probably hum the Mario Bros. theme. These jingles have become an irrevocable part...
