Official Release: Final Reverie, Inspired by Early Final Fantasy Games

Since the first installment of Final Fantasy was released, I was hooked on the adventure, trials, and tribulations that the characters experienced upon their journeys.  As a writer, I tend to focus on horror as a genre, but I always wanted to write an adventure tale.  Final Reverie is the product of that desire.  In substance, it pays tribute to the early Final Fantasy games and hints at a previou...

Final Fantasy Theatrhythm Pre-Order Swag

Square Enix has announced that North American Pre-orders of Final Fantasy Theatrhythm will include a Grip Stylus that can be personalized with one of 17 included character stickers (while supplies last) .
