Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix Trailer from Square Enix Amongst FFXV, KH3, and FFXHD

Square Enix Blockbuster Games 2014

With the newly (and for most, *finally*) announced Kingdom Hearts III heading to Xbox ONE and PlayStation 4 next-gen from Square Enix, many are shuffling into the already-anticipated Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix coming stateside September 10, 2013 headed up by designer and director Tetsuya Nomura of Final Fantasy fame and named one of the most creative game designers of all time by the western press. All eyes are on Square Enix, Nomura, and crew as they have also debuted the long in the making announcement which caught many by off guard as Final Fantasy Versus XIII was renamed to Final Fantasy XV (that’s right baby, fifteen) and will be coming exclusively to PlayStation 4 and Xbox ONE along with Kingdom Hearts III (both on undisclosed release dates).

FFXV is actually something people have never seen before from a Final Fantasy game and yet it seems Nomura has captured the interest of the original fanbase once again with the potential to redeem the series for all who aren’t a part of the FFXIII fanbase which rages on as Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII approaches release this November 21, 2013 in Japan, February 11, 2014 in North America,  February 14, 2014 in Europe, and February 13, 2014 in Australia. As if that weren’t enough for die-hard ‘Squeenix’ fans to go ballistic over, there’s also the Final Fantasy X & X-2 HD Remaster is coming to PlayStation 3 and the PlayStation Vita.

Perhaps Square Enix may be a little hard to keep track of, but the potential of each game named far exceeds what they have released in the “current generation” time period leading up until this point. Gamers should have high hopes for what Square Enix is set to deliver over the next couple of years and have faith in the long process of S.E.’s development teams refining and meeting that potential before its release.

Fact: Sony’s PS3 Is Making Money, Heavy Rain Earned Double Its Investment [Sales] [Data]

Sony is making money hand over fist with the new approach to gameplay and high fidelity graphics that Heavy Rain brings delivering a one of a kind emotional and immersive experience for gamers worldwide. In a report released today detailing a talk in Poland by Guillaume de Fondaumiere of Heavy Rain developer Quantic Dream it has been revealed by Quantic Dream that Heavy Rain made Sony “over 100 million Euros” with development and marketing for the game numbering around 54 million (displaying a profit of almost double and still running) and will be seen for future generations to come as the game that has brought about the end of the war on creativity.
