Fans Find Final Starter Evolutions, New Pokémon Hidden In Sun And Moon Demo

The Pokémon
Sun and Moon demo that released today has been datamined for a treasure trove of new information. Besides the final forms of the three starters, the rest of the Ultra Beasts and several unannounced Pokémon
were found.

If you don't want to be spoiled I suggest closing this article and hiding in a cave until next month.

The videos below confirm the final evolutions leak was indeed true. According to that leak, the final typing for the starters will be Grass/Flying for Rowlet's evolution, Water/Fairy for Poppolio, and Fire/Dark for Litten. Also revealed are new Alolan forms for the Geodude family and an extremely round-faced Persian.This time around it seems the legendaries have pre-evolutions, which is a series first. Besides that you can see models for evolutions of previously announced Pokémon
in the first video and shiny colors in the second.

Our Take
The confirmed starter evolutions reinforces my decision to go with Rowlet, though I swear that Litten better not turn into a Fire/Fighting. Overall the new designs are spectacular as they're varied but not terribly silly.The demo already makes a strong case for buying the game and this leak solidifies it for me. – The Feed

New Expansion Coming To Final Fantasy XIV In 2017

While Stormblood is probably the name of metal band in Finland, it's also the name of Final Fantasy XIV's next expansion pack slated for early summer 2017.

Square Enix showed fans at Fan Fest in Las Vegas a teaser trailer where two people punch each other on top of a large statue, which sounds very much like something in a Final Fantasy game.

Our Take
While expansions are expected for MMORPGs, it's good to see that this game has a healthy enough community to warrant more huge content drops. Hopefully it tells the meaning behind the word "Stormblood." – The Feed

Pre-Order Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue For An Exclusive Mickey/Sora Pin

Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue – the compilation on PS4 out in January – is getting a limited edition that contains an exclusive Mickey/Sora pin (shown above).

Unfortunately, that's about all you get, and in fact, anyone who pre-orders the title is automatically upgraded to the limited edition.

For more on the title, check out the latest trailer.


Our Take
While it's nice that everyone has a chance to get the limited edition, I'd wager that the Kingdom Hearts crowd in particular would be more receptive to an actual limited-edition package with more goodies at a higher price point. – The Feed

Noctis Casts Death In New Final Fantasy XV Trailer

When Noctis and crew aren't cruising around in the Regalia, there's plenty of action to be had. The new Final Fantasy XV trailer shows off stretches of combat, with Noctis using the powerful Death Spell courtesy of the Ring of Lucii.

The trailer debuted at TwitchCon 2016, and the death magic featured drains the HP from enemies at a progressive rate.

Final Fantasy XV Art Director Yusuke Naora Leaves Square Enix

Yusuke Naora has worked on Final Fantasy for over two decades, taking the helm as Art Director of the series as far back as Final Fantasy VI and as recently as Final Fantasy XV. Naora's history spans some of the most memorable moments in the franchise's history. Unfortunately, it seems the time has come for the two to part ways.

Yesterday Naora announced via his Twitter in Japanese that his last day at Square Enix was September 30. A few hours ago, Naora posted a few tweets in English detailing his departure.

Naora also mentions that before he left, he had the chance to see Final Fantasy XV's ending. "It was my last work, and it became the greatest ending," said Naora on Twitter. "Everybody did fantastic! It was the finest work."

Naora also mentioned that he's also looking to begin work on a new venture.

Our Take
I've fallen off Final Fantasy In recent years, but Naora worked on my favorite Final Fantasy (X), so I'm sad to see him go. Here's hoping whatever new venture he's pursuing ends up working out. – The Feed

Square Enix Releases A New Trailer For Final Fantasy XII Remaster

Final Fantasy XII may not have set the world on fire when it first launched in 2006, but a remastered version of the game could be just what it needed. Square Enix has released a new trailer for Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age, which shows off its enhanced visuals and gameplay.

In addition to looking much better than it did the first time around, one of The Zodiac Age's biggest hooks is the inclusion of the Zodiac Job System. This feature wasn't in the original release, but it was added to Final Fantasy XII International Zodiac Job System. That version of the game, which released in 2007, included the 12-job progression system. You'll be able to check it out yourself in 2017, when The Zodiac Age comes to PS4.
