Dragon Quest Heroes II is already available in Japan since May and after that it became quiet if the game will hit the west, untill today. Square Enix has announced, via the official Twitter account of Dragon Quest, that Dragon Quest Heroes II will be released in North America on 25 April 2017 and Europe on 28 April 2017 on PlayStation 4.

Dragon Quest Heroes II is a hack & slash action-RPG developed by Omega Force and was also released in Japan on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. No suprise that Square Enix skipped these systems due to the lack of sales.

Final Fantasy XV

After 10 years in development, the rename from Final Fantasy Versus XIII, the switch from PlayStation 3 to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Final Fantasy XV is now available worldwide!

Yesterday the European Launch Event was held in Antwerp, Belgium. Special guests at this event were art directors Tomohiro Hasegawa and Takashi Honjo and Afrojack, who played some of his favorite tracks from Final Fantasy games and his collabration to Final Fantasy XV called Braver.

Also the Japanese Launch Event was streamed yesterday. During this event they showed a special version called Mystery Disc that has been created specially for this stream. It starts with Noctis leaving the others behind in search of Prompto, who have gone missing. I won't spoil the rest, but it's wierd, that's for sure.

So what are you waiting for?! Go and get Final Fantasy XV and enjoy!

The latest issue of Japanese game magazine Famitsu has revealed that Square Enix's new project, which SE has been teasing for a couple of days now, is Star Ocean 5: Integrity and Faithlessness! The game is in development by tri-Ace and will be released on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.

The prologue of the game is as follows:

Do the depths of space forbid peace for mankind—

Centuries after leaving Earth, after a multitude of trials, with the creation and spread of the ‘Galactic Federation,’ humanity was on the verge of unified order and peace.

But the embers of conflict have begun to burn again.

Over 6,000 light years from Earth, on the unsettled planet, ‘Feycreed.’

Just as so many times before, the waves of history begin from a remote planet.

Sony Computer Entertainment has announced today that they are selling all their 9,520,000 Square Enix shares to a company called SMBC Nikko Securities. This will generate an income of 15.3 billion yen, around $ 150 million USD / € 108 million which will be marked down Sony's financial report for the year ending 31st March 2015. 

Sony is lately in severe financial weather and this is a financial boost for the company. This marks the seperation of a long partnership that resulted in a strong presence of the Final Fantasy series on PlayStation hardware over the years.

What the exact reason is for the sale is unknown.

17-04 Update: Sale price was incorrect and has been updated after Sony's announcement.
