Square Enix

In the latest issue of the Official US PlayStation magazine Square-Enix said that they wanted to release Grandia III in North America. Also this week the Entertainment Software Ratings Board (better known as ESRB) has given a rating Teen for Grandia III. The reason why Grandia III has this rating is because the game has fantasy violence, mild language, and use of alcohol.

Keep checking back HHN for more news about the upcoming release of Grandia III.

Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children

Yesterday Square-Enix has announced that its CG movie sequel Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children has recorded sales exceeding 700,000 copies in Japan since its September 14th release. According to the company, the limited edition DVD Box and the first print limited edition have both sold out completely. While it did not provide any numbers, it also revealed that the UMD version of the movie was very popular as well.

Producer Shinji Hashimoto was pleased with the results, saying after the success in Japan, the expectations for the upcoming releases in North America and Europe were very high. The succcess in Japan would also encourage Square Enix to aim even higher in the future.

The movie's popularity has also been evident in Tokyo, as this editor found in late September. Despite having already been available for two weeks, the DVD version was sold out in Yodobashi Camera's main store in Shinjuku as well as the HMV Shibuya store.

Hell and Heaven Net

After a couple of months fighting between Koby from Forgotten Memories and me about ripping, cheating and calling ourselves immature we've called peace. Continueing with fighting isn't getting nowhere and it isn't good for our sites too.
Koby replaced the pages that were ripped from HHN and I've removed him from the blacklist.
Also, bad rating each other is in the past too now. I'll inform the webmasters to remove all the bad comments.
So, like they say in Dutch: 'zand erover'.

Hell and Heaven Net

Square Enix

Square Enix has announced that they will be bringing Final Fantasy V and Final Fantasy VI to the Game Boy Advance in 2006. The GBA versions of these titles will be improved, just like the conversion of Final Fantasy IV, announced earlier this year.

Square Enix President Youichi Wada also addressed the development of Final Fantasy III for the Nintendo DS. Instead of being a simple clean-up of the original's Famicom-style graphics, Square Enix are making the characters and environments fully 3D. Hiromichi Tanaka, producer of the title, says that to keep the vibe of the original title intact, developers from the original title have been brought onboard for the remake.
