The Regalia is finally, here comes the PS5

The Regalia car reward from the Final Fantasy XV and Final Fantasy XIV event is finally here...and it is beautiful, it is lovely and as promised, it sits four players.

Thank you Yoshi and Dev Team.

Thank you very much indeed.

And this is what we did on Excalibur...

Next, more information for the two new cities for Shadowbringers was added to the official site a few days ago... very very interesting lore.

And also for the new areas... head over to the official Shadowbringers site HERE to read up on the fascinating tidbit of lore histories for these areas...

On to the new information regarding PS5 that finally emerged from Wired Magazine who had an exlusive interview with the Lead Architect, Mark Cerny.

It has been in development since at least 2015 and a 2020 release date has been speculated but the real kicker is that it will have a decent price sticker... brilliant innit?   In addition, it is backwards compatible with the PS4, it packs a phenomenal amount of graphics power under the hood and has been given a massive upgrade in audio functionality.

This is no mere upgrade people... it is next-gen console and we can definitely expect some really exciting PS5 games to emerge from Square Enix.

How do you like them apples?

*Drum roll* - Presenting Omega, Your New Smart Home Assistant - Plus FFXIV Manga and a new next-gen project!

Yes indeed...

Not only that, Project Manager M from the Dev team made an update to the Dev Blog today and  unleashed snippets of information regarding a secret project... the FFXIV Manga with school themes, machina pilots and all.  Wicked innit?

Ok, I will cease now... April Fool's Day!

Finally on a last note... and this is not an April Fool's date... HERE is a very interesting article from Gematsu... as expected, Yoshi will now evolve yet again and his division will be developing a very excellent new large-scale next-gen project.

Yes indeed, the excitement begins to venture forth... perhaps we will finally begin to see the realization of a game that takes it's bones from the tech demo "Agni's Philosophy"?

Or even better, one of my favourites for last year... Visual Works Character Prototype

Prepare to be amazed.
