One big announcement from Sony’s press conference for Tokyo Game Show 2017 is the announcement of Final Fantasy IX being re-released on PS4. The last of the mainline series on the PS1, and the one of the most faithful in tone to the earlier numbered titles of the past was rumoured to have this re-release, and now it was confirmed.
The game was made available right after the announcement, and thankfully Asia’s Playstation Store is also getting it, albeit one day later. It is currently sold for RM52.80- 20% discount from RM66 for this week only.
This should be something similar to the Steam release that was available last year.
It’s interesting to [...]
The upcoming remaster of the greatly underrated Final Fantasy XII is on track for its July release. It will be the first time for players outside Japan to try out the new job systems introduced in Final Fantasy XII International. The change to specific jobs for each character is a response to the ill-received License Board character progression that was way too open-ended resulting in players easily make not optimal character builds. The job system enables each character to have specific License Boards that is optimise for a specific character build, but also closes opportunities for hybrid builds.
Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age will add one more neat trick to job system by [...]
Delay after delay after delay, Persona 5 finally arrives in English. The long awaited sequel to the Persona series, originally a spin-off from Atlus’s Shin Megami Tensei series, is finally here. Persona has been around for more than 20 years and the latest addition, Persona 5, carries over the lineage that made them a mainstream success starting with Persona 3 and 4 while bringing back the darker tones and some gameplay elements that was seen in the first Persona and the Persona 2 duology.
That 20 years of lineage certainly pays off in a big way.
There’s just so much love and care being given to Persona 5 that even if the core gameplay (and story) feels like [...]
Persona 5 was launched with some free DLC, and if you’ve been playing the English version and was wondering where the promised free Japanese voices DLC, here’s good news. It’s now out in the Playstation Store alongside a few other free DLCs.
The free DLCs are the Healing item set which provides in-game items (one of them is a Soma, a very powerful and rare recovery item), the Skill Card set that provides extra skills that you can put in your Personas and the Merciless difficulty, for those who want an even more challenging experience.
While the long-anticipated JRPG by Atlus and P Team is finally out worldwide, it also has some really strict [...]
Persona 5 has been so long in the works and now it’s finally here. While being one of the most exciting JRPGs that has caught the mainstream attention, it also one of the most restrictive when it comes to sharing the experience. The PS4 Share functions are disabled for most of the game, and now we have more detailed restrictions for those that can bypass that by having a capture card. The rules also applies to those making videos regarding the game as well.
Atlus USA has made clear what the limitations are. First off, of course, is not going to deep into spoilers
“Please, PLEASE do not post any specific plot points or story spoilers, and only talk about the [...]
Well, this explains a lot. Persona 5 was released in Japan last year to critical acclaim, though its English localisation needed more time before it was ready. Despite the long gap between the Japanese release and its impending English release next week, there are not many screenshots being shared around, making avoiding spoilers a pretty easy effort.
Now we know why. All versions of the JRPG are prohibiting the use of the PS4’s built-in screenshot and video capture. Speaking to Polygon, Atlus explained why.
“This being a Japanese title with solely a single-playthrough story means Japan is very wary about it. Sharing is currently blocked through the native PS4 [...]
