Final Fantasy 15 had the second biggest launch in the history of the franchise

5 Dec

It’s selling faster than Cup Noodles.

Final Fantasy 15 released last week to the excitement of many I’m sure.

Despite not being able to nudge FIFA 17 from the top of the UK charts, it came in at a respectable second place, but Square Enix should be pretty psyched nevertheless as the title is the second fastest selling game of the franchise according to GfK.

The numbers don’t take digital sales into account, but the figures put it just behind 2010’s Final Fantasy 13.

Skyrim narrowly missed breaking back into the top 10 again this week after Cyber Monday promotions bumped it up six places. Infinite Warfare and Battlefield 1 are still in the top five, with Pokemon Sun and Moon dropping down to eighth and ninth position.

Check out the full top 10 list below.

  1. FIFA 17
  2. Final Fantasy 15
  3. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare
  4. Battlefield 1
  5. Forza Horizon 3
  6. Watch Dogs 2
  7. Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End
  8. Pokemon Moon
  9. Pokemon Sun
  10. Minecraft: Xbox Edition

Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles heads to PC and PS4 next year and it looks delightful

5 Dec

Is has a distinct Wind Waker vibe.

Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles is a charming open-world adventure game due for release next year.

Set on a huge island with eight biomes that have their own seasons and day/ night cycle, Yonder’s hero will have to explore the idyllic paradise to root out the evil “murk” lurking there.

Your character is customsable by the sounds of things, but it’s not clear whether the options are limited to choosing between a preset male and female avatar.

Another puzzler is combat. The trailer doesn’t feature any and the only object being carried around is a lantern.

“The hero of Yonder will explore the island, uncovering its secrets and the mysteries within them self as they embarks on a journey of self-discovery, while saving Gemea and its people. On the quest to become the island’s champion, he or she will join forces with natives and Sprites, ethereal creatures whom are the only thing capable of dispersing the murk.”

Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles has a release window of Q2 2017 for PC and PS4.

Gran Turismo Sport’s swanky new 4K trailer debuts at PSX 2016

5 Dec

Still no news on a release date.

Gran Turismo Sport got a fancy new trailer at PSX showcasing an array of shiny cars whizzing around racing tracks in 4K and HDR.

It looks pretty spectacular.

This summer Sony announced that the title had been pushed back to 2017, as the studio needed more time to “perfect” the game.

GT Sport is being heralded as the best entry in the series by Polyphony but we’ll have to wait until next year before putting that statement to the test.

Eugene Jarvis teams up with Resogun’s Housemarque for new arcade shooter Nex Machina

5 Dec

Keep your eyes peeled for this action-packed top down shooter.

Nex Machina is the new twin-stick shooter from Resogun developer Housemarque and Eugene Jarvis.

Revealed at PSX on Saturday, Nex Machina is described as “the most explosive top-down action shooter Housemarque has ever created.”

The plot revolves around an uprising of machines that has to be quashed sharpish.

“We’ve been thinking long and hard about how to bring back a ‘true arcade experience’ in a world where arcade halls are almost extinct,” says Housemarque’s Mikael Haveri.

“Nex Machina is our shot at cracking that problem [and it] will provide the classic Housemarque arcade experience and a kickass competitive framework, which we will expand over time to make it the obvious choice for players looking for a challenge.”

Final Fantasy 15 Japanese Cup Noodle commercial is all kinds of crazy

5 Dec

Cup Noodle product placement on a whole new level.

If you’ve started playing Final Fantasy 15, you may have noticed the very real Nisshin Cup Noodles popping up on a billboard or – more likely – in conversation with Gladio, who can’t get enough of the things.

There’s even a tie-in quest – be warned, click the link and you’ll spoil the joy of finding it for yourself.

But the love of Cup Noodles transcends in-game product placement, as evident by this Final Fantasy 15 x Cup Noodle mashup that kicks in after the first 15 seconds.

“The currently airing Final Fantasy XV commercial has been reprocessed scene by scene and converted into the Cup Noodles format – transforming the majestic and atmospheric world of Final Fantasy through brute force into the Cup Noodles universe.”

According to DualShockers, the press release referred to the “neighborly friendship” between Nissin and Square Enix, whose offices are a three minute walk apart.

“When Nissin Foods sent over gifts to celebrate the release of Final Fantasy XV, the conversation turned into an excited discussion about collaborating together, and so it came to be that the FFXV development team produced this mashup TV commercial.”

There’s even a tweet showing the dev team receiving their Cup Noodle care package.

Who among us hasn’t indulged in a quick and dirty meal of instant noodles? You can’t beat curry flavour.

Both Final Fantasy 15 and Cup Noodles are available to buy right now.

Yakuza 6 gets a western release date along with original Yakuza remake

5 Dec

Sega has gone to town on the remake.

Yakuza 6 releases in Japan this week, and while we’ve seen a few tidbits here and there that have piqued out interest, a western release hadn’t been confirmed.

Welp, Sega has announced that yes, it will be coming to the west in early 2018.

They broke the news at PSX over the weekend, and fans of the series got even more exciting news with the revelation that Yakuza Kiwami would also be making its way westward in 2017.

“Yakuza Kiwami is a ground-up remake of the original Yakuza game, which first launched on PS2 back in 2005,” and the “extreme” overhaul includes a ton of new stuff.

  • A Family Patriarch’s Ransom of New Content – Not just a simple graphical upgrade, Kiwami adds nearly 30 minutes of cutscenes alone, providing all-new insight into the game’s plot and creating common threads with series prequel Yakuza 0. There’s also added distractions (Pocket Circuit car racing, MesuKing: Battle Bug Beauties, new hostesses, and more), side quests and combat updates to bring the original Yakuza game into the latest console generation.
  • A Place for Newcomers and Veterans – Yakuza Kiwami is the ultimate bridge in the series: newcomers or those whose Yakuza experience started with Yakuza 0 will have familiar, exacting controls, top-notch SEGA localization, and a solid starting point for entering the Yakuza franchise fresh. Veterans will experience a familiar Kamurocho and plot, but with new levels of story depth and graphical polish.
  • But it was me! Majima! – Completely new to Kiwami is the “Majima Everywhere” system, where the series’ deranged, one-eyed maniac will constantly surprise and challenge Kiryu to combat when he least expects it. We’re talking “popping out of a goofy costume” levels of surprise, so players must stay on their toes and be ready to defend themselves from Kiryu’s chief rival.
  • Extreme Revitalization – Kiwami is rebuilt from the ground up with all new HD assets, exclusive Japanese voice audio re-recorded by the series cast, and more; optimized for the PlayStation 4 and running in 1080p/60fps. And following suit with SEGA’s commitment to the Yakuza series, the game will release in both physical and digital formats in the west.

Yakuza fans are in for a treat.
