Final Fantasy Union is back for Episode 120, but it's not the usual hosts running the show this time around! Branden has invaded and he's joined by Jared to discuss Final Fantasy XV, as Lauren and Darryl are on holiday.
The featured topic revolves around Final Fantasy XV being make or break for the franchise and it focusses on three main areas: use of technology, overall experience and how it challenges the status quo.
We also have some news for you guys, relating to the release of Final Fantasy IX on Steam and some info about Kingsglaive's release and the production of more Ultimate Collector's Editions for Final Fantasy XV! Enjoy!
Kingdom Hearts Unchained Chi has finally released in North America, so we've got an episode full of impressions!
Branden is joined by Churro as they talk through loads of different parts of the game, including the battle system, mission structure and of course, the story that's featured throughout!
We also have a few (unrelated) questions about music for Kingdom Hearts 3 and whether or not we believe the Kingdom Hearts series deals with humour in a positive way.
Uncovered: Final Fantasy XV was an explosion of everything Final Fantasy and everything that's happened since has been absolutely mind blowing! It's therefore the perfect time to catch you guys up on everything that happened during the show and has happened since!
The first part of the show is therefore us talking through a bit of the pre-Uncovered coverage, the show itself (with little pieces of info attached) and then everything that's happened after thanks to interviews with Tabata and various other publications.
The second part of the show see us dive into the Final Fantasy XV Platinum Demo. I'm sure most of you have had the chance to check it out for yourselves, but if you want to hear what we think, we've got you covered! There's even time for a couple of questions on the end too.
It makes for a pretty awesome episode and we are certainly psyched for Final Fantasy XV.
Everyone's talking about Final Fantasy XV right now following a rather successful Uncovered: Final Fantasy XV event. It poses the question, should Kingdom Hearts adopt a similar model?
Branden is joined by Churro as they discuss whether or not Kingdom Hearts, as a franchise, should look to start releasing multiple properties (not necessarily games) within a year, but release them less frequently outside of these sprints, or just stick to a single release every year.
There are also some questions relating to who will voice Master Xehanort in Kingdom Hearts 3 and another relating to the theory behind Emblem Heartless - not something that should be missed!
The dust has now settled from Uncovered: Final Fantasy XV and we thought it'd be the perfect time to do a special episode so you guys didn't have to wait two weeks to hear our thoughts!
Darryl is joined by Branden for this episode due to their special connections with Uncovered. We were also hoping to get Churro on the show too (as he sat pretty much next to Sakaguchi), but he was unfortunately not available
For Final Fantasy Union, it was immense. We were featured heavily during the pre-show thanks to our event a few weeks ago. Lauren was also the first interview they played during this segment, so it was pretty surreal! Branden was also featured in the pre-event thanks to his art. He was the first fan artist show during the calendar segment, with his drawing representing the month of November.
For the show itself, we talk about everything from the release date of Final Fantasy XV, to Kingsglaive, to Brotherhood, to theme songs, to collector's editions!
We hope you enjoy it!
