Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Preview
Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles is a video game for the Nintendo GameCube. It is the first Final Fantasy game on a Nintendo console since Final Fantasy VI as well as the second Square-produced game on a Nintendo platform. The game follows the quest of various fictional races to replenish the magic crystals that keep them safe from the miasma of poisonous gas that has enveloped their world.

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Storyline
The world is covered by a miasma poisonous In Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles to the four races: Selkies, Lilties, Clavats, and Yukes. Despite this, cities are located in several places, protected by magical crystals that fend off the miasma temporarily. In order to maintain the power of the crystals, each city recruits a crystal caravan. These caravans carry with them a "crystal chalice", a magical container with a shard of protective crystal attached. The caravans then travel around the world, seeking trees of the magical essence myrrh, which recharges the power of the crystals.
In Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles, players take on the role of caravaners from a small town that they may name themselves, and work to maintain their town's crystal and locate and destroy the miasma. To do this, they visit many other cities, cross oceans, and explore dungeons, fields, caves, and other varied locales in order to obtain myrrh and acquire better equipment. The trees of myrrh are universally guarded by strong monsters, so it is up to the players to defeat them and gain access to the trees.

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Character
Many characters are encountered throughout the game. Although they each have their own story to tell, some are more memorable than others.
  • Amidatty: the rather eccentric leader of the Yuke caravan from Shella.
  • De Nam: A rather peculiar Selkie who players meet in Shella. He is studying magic and wants to one day rid the world of miasma.

Final Fantasy Tactic Advance

Final Fantasy Tactic Advance Preview
Final Fantasy Tactics Advance is a tactical role-playing game developed and published by Square (now Square Enix) for the Nintendo Game Boy Advance. A spin-off to the popular Final Fantasy series, the game shares several traits with 1997's Final Fantasy Tactics, though it is not a sequel. The player assembles a clan of individual characters, and controls their actions over grid-like battlefields. Players are mostly free to decide the classes, abilities and statistics of their characters.

Final Fantasy Tactic Advance Storyline
The game's story centers on four children — Marche, Mewt, Ritz, and Doned — who live in a small town named St. Ivalice. The children are transported to a realm of the same name as their town, "Ivalice," after discovering an ancient magical book. This magical realm of Ivalice appears to be Mewt's manifestation of the video game "Final Fantasy," which he had played.
The game's story takes place in Ivalice, a world created when four ordinary children — Marche Radiuju, Mewt Randell, Ritz Malheur, and Doned Radiuju — come across an old book which Mewt purchases at his local used bookstore. Unaware that the book is the legendary Gran Grimoire with the power to change the world as its readers desires, the children transform their hometown of St. Ivalice into the Ivalice of a fantasy world. The fantasy Ivalice is supposedly a reincarnation of Mewt's memories from a Final Fantasy game.

Final Fantasy Tactic Advance Character
The story of Final Fantasy Tactics Advance revolves around three primary characters; Marche Radiuju, the main character who battles the dream worlds of his friends; Ritz Malheur, a stubborn girl who speaks her mind and changes sides in her struggle for self acceptance; and Mewt Randell, a boy whose mother died that discovers a magical entity that changed the world into the world of Ivalice. There are also secondary characters, such as Doned Radiuju, Marche's little brother who does not desire to return to the real world, since he is sick in the real world and well in the dream one, and Cid Randell, Mewt's father who becomes the Judgemaster of Ivalice.

The game is set in the kingdom of Ivalice during a period of war. The story follows Ramza Beoulve, a young cadet who finds himself thrust into the middle of the conflict.

In stark contrast to other 32-bit era Final Fantasy titles, Final Fantasy Tactics uses a 3D, isometric, rotatable playing field, with bitmap sprite characters


Final Fantasy Tactics Storyline
This game requires a bit of backround information on what's happening and why. It explains it in the game but it's kind of confusing. First off, everything up to the ending of FFT is explained in the beginning of the game. Alazam the scholar tells a tale of a young man, who stops this big war refered to as "The Lion War". It also mixes in tales from the "Zodiac Brave Story", which is basically a tale of 12 legendary knights that each carried a Zodiac stone and they sealed this great demon a long time ago. It also mentions about the "Fifty Year War", which happend right before the beginning of the game.
Alazam's tale tells us that Delita is the hero written in history that stops the war, but it hints at the fact that there might have been someone else who is the "real" hero. The story begins as history is retold in the view of this "real hero".

Final Fantasy Tactics Character

Final Fantasy XIII : Versus

Final Fantasy Versus XIII Review :
Final Fantasy Versus XIII is an action role-playing game developed and published by Square Enix exclusively for the Sony PlayStation 3 video game console. Alongside Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy Agito XIII, the game is a part of the Fabula Nova Crystallis Final Fantasy XIII compilation.
In recent interview translations, Nomura says the game will play like a more realistic version of Kingdom Hearts with some elements of a third-person shooter similar to Dirge of Cerberus. New interviews have stated Nomura's wish to push away from "light magical" styles (he specifically references Kingdom Hearts) and opt for a much bleaker realistic world. He wants the characters to be perceived as believable humans that the player can relate to rather than simply fabricated characters

Final Fantasy Versus XIII Storyline
The game focuses on a mysterious protagonist, the last heir of a dynasty ruling over the only remaining city in the world to control crystals. Under unforeseen circumstances, he is forced to make a stand when his kingdom, people, and its crystals come under attack from marauders seeking to conquer the city and take the crystals as their own.
The main character's country appears to be very advanced and modern, as one example, while neighboring countries appear to have remained in an era similar to the Middle Ages. The main power in the world are the Crystals. All the countries (aside from the protagonist's) have had them at one time, only to lose them in continual warfare. They had pooled their resources into weapons, granting them advanced rifles rather than swords and magic. Now, only the main character's country has a Crystal, triggering debate over its use as it is beneficial to the military. Recently, a peace treaty was discussed. However, marauders with guns invade the city as the main character battles them, disrupting the peace

Final Fantasy Versus XIII Character
The protagonist is a mysterious young man with dark blue-ish gray hair with matching eyes. He is the last heir to a dynasty, ruling the only remaining city in the world which controls crystals. He protects his home from marauders that plan to conquer the city and take the crystals as their own. He wields a number of different weapons, including swords, spears, and lances, and can even induce them (telekinetically or otherwise) to independently move in the air to form a whirling barrier around himself. He has also demonstrated the power of instantaneous teleportation.

Final Fantasy XIII : Agito

Final Fantasy XIII : Agito Preview

Final Fantasy XIII Compilation







Final Fantasy XIII Review
Final Fantasy XIII is an upcoming console role-playing game developed and published by Square Enix exclusively for the Sony PlayStation 3 as a part of the Final Fantasy video game series. First appearing at E3 2006, the game features a futuristic, high-tech world. Only two characters have been revealed thus far: a woman, with the code name Lightning, who wields a weapon which functions as a sword and a firearm; and an unnamed man who is her ally. Along with Final Fantasy Versus XIII and the mobile phone game Final Fantasy Agito XIII, Final Fantasy XIII is part of the project known as Fabula Nova Crystallis Final Fantasy XIII, but is neither a prequel nor a sequel to any of the two other installments. Square Enix explained that although all three games take place in the same universe, they are not directly related in terms of story.

Final Fantasy XIII Battle system
The concept for Final Fantasy XIII's battle system is to maintain the strategic side of 'command input' battles while also including the excitement found in 'fast-paced' battles. Like recent entries in the franchise, the game will be in real time, without any random battles.[4] It has been confirmed that Final Fantasy XIII will have parties.
As seen in the E3 2006 trailer, battles are menu driven. Commands are selected from a reel on the bottom left side of the screen. Each command has an ATB Cost, which reduces the ATB bar. It is believed that the bar fills up over time, like the traditional ATB system, but in Final Fantasy XIII you can input commands while it is still filling.

Final Fantasy XIII Storyline
Two locations have been revealed to the public so far; Pulse and Cocoon. The world of Final Fantasy XIII is called Pulse. The overworld is plagued by monsters, though little else is known about it.
Cocoon was created by a Crystal as the ideal environment for humans to live in. It is a haven for humankind against Pulse. Cocoon is a beautiful city, floating in the sky. It is defended by the Crystal which created it (Cocoon's Crystal), and has many advanced technologies protecting it. The Crystal creates many things for the city and its inhabitants, such as machines for the people to use. It also produces living beings and raises them. The Crystal closely looks after its people.
The people of Cocoon perceive everything outside of Cocoon (the world of Pulse) as dangerous, and fear it. Those who have been influenced by the people of Pulse (Outsiders), are quarantined by the "Holy Government" of Cocoon, and deported to Pulse. The prisoners shown in the E3 2006 trailer are being deported
The Crystals in Final Fantasy XIII have conscious thought; they are living beings. They can create things, and so it is likely the people of Final Fantasy XIII's world see them as gods. We know of two Crystals in the world of Final Fantasy XIII; Cocoon's and Pulses'. Cocoon's Crystal created the city and cares for it. Everything outside Cocoon is controlled by Pulses' Crystal. It is not known if there are more Crystals.


Final Fantasy XIII Characters
  • Lightning, Final Fantasy XIII's main character is a young woman with strawberry-blonde hair. She uses the codename "Lightning" to hide her true identity, though she does not know it herself. She is the Crystal's chosen one (we do not know which Crystal), on a mission to destroy the floating city Cocoon
  • Unnamed Man, A blond, bandanna-wearing male who rides a motorcycle and wields a gun (possibly a sniper rifle). In the Jump Festa 2006 trailer, he is shown coming to Lightning's aid when she is outnumbered by soldiers. Very little is known about him. He is currently nicknamed "Mr. 33cm", which is supposed to be his shoesize.
  • Unnamed Girl, Seen in the TGS07 trailer, she is a pinkish-haired girl wielding a bow who seems to be an ally of Lightning. Nothing else is known at this point.
