Rhapsodies of Vana'diel is a three chapters-long scenario that contains appearances from all of the well-known main characters, and we're hoping that adventurers who are currently taking a break will Return Home to Vana'diel to see the magnificent ending.
All of the details on Rhapsodies of Vana'diel can be found on the Goddess's Gala official site.
The collaboration event, "A Journey to Remember," begins on November 11, and Eorzea will be visited by the main heroine of Rhapsodies of Vana'diel, Iroha.
Iroha has descended from the future wheContinue Reading

Wow it's been 13 years!
FFXI was my first mmorpg, and I've played from '04-12, this is surprising news indeed to me!
I knew it wouldn't be long until the console versions were going to be shut down, but working with Nexon on a mobile version!?
The PlayStation 2 and Xbox 360 versions of 13-year-old MMO Final Fantasy 11 finally come to an end next year,
Square Enix has announced.
Were you still playing Final Fantasy 11?
But the PC version will live on.
Final Fantasy 11's final main scenario is called Rhapsodies of Vana'diel, and the first chapter of that will be added to the game in May 2015.
Massively multiplayer online role-playing game Final Fantasy 11 released in 2002 for PlayStation 2 and PC, then later on Xbox 360. Rhapsodies of Vana'diel is designed to tie Continue Reading

Despite the game being 10 1/2 years old now, FFXI is still going strong.
Square Enix announced a few months ago that
their most successful numbered Final Fantasy title will be
getting another expansion to be released in 2013.
The latest trailer released by Square presents the 5th expansion to FFXI:
"Seekers Of Adoulin"
It is the first full expansion for Final Fantasy XI in over 5 years after Wings of the Goddess.
Seekers of Adoulin is set in the western continent of Ulbuka and will feature new areas, quests and jobs.
Such as the Geomancer and Rune fencers.
*PlayStation 2 support for Seekers of Adoulin will only be available in Japan*
Although Square Enix is not dropping PlayStation 2 support for Final Fantasy XI as a whole,
*Seekers of AdouContinue Reading
Good news, Android users: Square Enix has released Final Fantasy III to the Google Play store.
The Android release follows up the iOS version and comes out to $16 (okay, $15.00 to be exact). That's significantly cheaper than the DS version, obviously. You'll need Android 2.2 or newer to run the game.
Here are some of the features noted on the product page:
- New and improved 3D visuals and story sequences only for Android
- Smooth, intuitive touch-panel controls specifically tailored to Square Enix's smartphone RPGs
- Quicker browsing through the monster bestiary and other game records
- New visual designs for the Job Mastery Cards
So this pretty much places Final Fantasy III on just about every handheld platform short of Sony's PSP line. Oh wait, that's coming in September.

SquareEnix has been the early starters when it comes down to MMOs, they are currently making an effort to get Final Fantasy XIV and Dragon Quest X off the ground.
Final Fantasy XI
Status: Still Running
Of course, other then the current letdown of Final Fantasy XIV, Final Fantasy XI was SquareEnix's first attempt which was successful enough to spawn expansion packs. The success which as led them to believe that Final Fantasy XIV would reach the same success.
Fantasy Earth Zero

Fantasy Earth Zero was a 50 vs 50 PvP battlefield, you got to gather resources, build structures and attack the enemy, trying to destory their base. The game make the battlefield link together on the world map to see how the whole world processed. It waContinue Reading

Anyone who has played Final Fantasy XI knows how much of a pain in the ass it can be to use the PlayOnline service, essentially a glorified launcher for the game, for anything other than getting to the game itself. Messing with browser mail, figuring out how to manage your account settings, the constant loadtimes, etc etc. It's just a humongous hassle.
Thankfully, SE seems to have finally gotten the hint, and (in the midst of all the hacking kerfuffle) decided to do something about it. They've recently announced that they will be merging all PlayOnline accounts onto their Square Enix account account system, so that you can keep both your information for FFXI and FFXIV (if you're one of the few people that are still playing that mess at least) in one convenient spot. This service isContinue Reading

If there's one thing Square Enix can do right with their MMO products, it's providing some damn good deals. Today, to commemorate the game's nine year anniversary, they have announced a Final Fantasy XI bundle pack that includes all of the game's content, all for a paltry $19.99.
The special bundle, titled the Final Fantasy XI Ultimate Collection Abyssea Edition, not only makes SE a competitor with Capcom for repeatedly rereleasing their products and attaching ridiculously long and redundant names, but includes all of the major expansions, as well as all of the add-on scenarios. That's four whole expansions, covering Rise of the Zilart to Wings of the Goddess, plus all three of the side stories, and even the three Abyssea battle zones. That's nine years worth of content, all inContinue Reading
Back in December 2003 I was a senior in High School. I was also around when an MMO called Final Fantasy XI came out. I was (and still am) a huge console RPG player and the Final Fantasy series was my favorite. So, I asked for FFXI for Christmas that year and I got it. I immediately started playing and was hooked. FFXI was one of the biggest MMORPGs at the time (remember this was pre-WoW) and it showed it. For those of you that dont know anything about FFXI, it is a party game. This means that without the appropriate group, the only thing you can really do is craft. It didn't matter though, there were so many people you could find a group easily and start killing things and leveling up. And while you were partying you were making friends and having a good time running from goblins and "training" half of the zones. The game was all about the community, and I loved it.
And I continued to love it for over 10 hours a day 24/7 for the next 4 years.
It took me almost a year just to get my first job to level 75 (the max level). Right away I started doing end game content andContinue Reading
