Final Fantasy: 4 Heroes of Light Lighting Up Western Stores

Square-Enix announced recently that their Final Fantasy DS spin-off Hikari no Yon Senshi: Fainaru Fantajī Gaiden which was released in Japan last year will be released in North America and Europe on October 5 and 8, respectively.

Entitled Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light focuses on a group of friends who must rescue a kidnapped princess from the evil Witch of the North. Square-Enix are marketing it as a classic RPG game that utilizes today’s technology, and this is proved by the classic, though slightly generic, plot.

Those who loved the classic Final Fantasy games (specifically Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest or Mystic Quest Legend in PAL regions, as many have compared the two titles), then you may want to hit this title up.

As well as this, a limited edition DVD version was also released which includes a Figma figurine, which is pictured below.

Dragon Quest IX Confirmed for Europe

The latest in Square Enix’s popular RPG franchise Dragon Quest, second only to Final Fantasy, is set for release in Europe as well as North America, and will be hitting European shelves on July 23, less than two weeks after the game’s NA release, exclusively for Nintendo’s DS.

The plot of Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Sky follows a city guardian who travels in search of sacred fruits, coincidentally from a sacred tree, that can grant wishes.

The game broke records when it was initially released in Japan on July 11 2009 (Exactly a year before the upcoming North American release) and helped boost DS sales by 152% within the first few weeks of release.

Look forward to this one, RPG fans!

Fable III Boxart Shown Off

I’m not much of a Fable fan, but this box-art looks pretty coo’.

Oh yeah, looks like Fable III is going to be on PC as well. apparently, Microsoft “have no plan for release of Fable III on anything other than XBOX 360 at this time” (Or words to that effect). Still, that’s a pretty awesome gun. Just sayin’.
