With so much talk about the PlayStation 5 and its fancy SSD, we discuss how this might affect any future installments of Kingdom Hearts on the next generation of consoles.
In addition, there's some news related to Melody of Memories, the release of Kingdom Hearts on the Epic Games Store and an update on NEO: The World Ends With You.
Final Fantasy has featured some pretty impactful moments and as part of today's episode, we're discussing the ones that had the most emotional impact!
In addition, we also have plenty of questions from the community relating to the Final Fantasy 7 Remake, favourite summons and how we've enjoyed the older games on our Twitch stream!
With KHUx coming to an end, it's time to discuss everything that's happened since the release of Kingdom Hearts 3!
Throughout this episode, the crew take a deep dive into the canon story of KHUx while also taking time to recognise the 19th anniversary of Kingdom Hearts!
It's another episode and it's another huge update about the Final Fantasy 7 Remake!
Yoshinori Kitase and Tetsuya Nomura have been speaking to Japanese media about what to expect from Intergrade, with some loose talks about Part Two, and there's also new information about First Soldier, Ever Crisis and... Forspoken (although that's not Final Fantasy-related!)
Numerous games have gone down the path of creating a prequel and that's the main discussion for today's episode... would it be worth Square Enix making a full on Kingdom Hearts 0?
If so, what would the story look like and would it be a full-game or just a segment of another game?
After months of nothing, Square Enix decided to announce a load of news and games related to the Final Fantasy 7 Remake... all on the same day!
Throughout this episode, we're discussing Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade, Final Fantasy 7: The First Solider and Final Fantasy 7: Ever Crisis... it's going to be a hell of a ride!
After many, many years, development on the Kingdom Hearts mobile game will be ceasing as both games are now complete!
Nomura revealed the news in an open letter, where he stated that once both teams had wrapped up their current workloads they would be merged with the rest of the Kingdom Hearts team. An offline version of the game will then be made available for fans to enjoy.
Based on some new comments from Naoki Yoshida, it feels like Square Enix will be taking a more measured approach with the marketing of Final Fantasy XVI.
Throughout this episode, we discuss what this means for the next 6-12 months and why we're pleased with the comments Yoshida has made.
After many, many years, every major Kingdom Hearts game will now be coming to PC.
It sees Kingdom Hearts 1.5, 2.5, 2.8, 3 and Melody of Memories all arrive as Epic Games Store exclusive titles and there will be some exclusive keyblades available too!
Having completed our playthrough of the last Final Fantasy game to appear on the NES, it's time to have a discussion about what it brought to the table!
There's also a brief run-down of some recent Final Fantasy news, specifically relating to Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker, the next expansion.
It's surreal to think it's already been two years since the release of Kingdom Hearts 3, but we thought it'd be a great time to reminisce!
We've also got some new relating to a Kingdom Hearts novel that's being released and addressing some fan concerns about burnout with the franchise.
It's the 20th anniversary of Final Fantasy X and we felt it would be prudent to discuss why we hold the game with such reverence.
It leads to some interesting discussions around the specific elements that we feel make Final Fantasy X such a special experience and we hope you enjoy!
With EA's exclusivity deal now ended, does that open for the door for Star Wars characters to start appearing within the Kingdom Hearts universe?
That's the main topic of this episode, but there's also room to talk about Melody of Memory, its impact and some of the story elements that are a bit more nuanced.
The year has only just begun and there's already Final Fantasy 7 Remake speculation!
Throughout this episode, we run-through the latest Final Fantasy trademarks, discuss our views on Final Fantasy XVI and run-through the various games we're excited to see and play throughout the year!
2020 has been a pretty crazy year on all fronts, and it's been one to remember for Final Fantasy.

Thank you all again for sticking with us this year <3
Kingdom Hearts is an expansive franchise that appeals to all ages, but when it is best to start?
This is one the many questions discussed on today's episode as Branden and Churro venture into other topics like SEJ's new working from home policy and Yoko Shimomura's music retrospective series!
Boss battle are always pretty intense and this episode we're running through five of the best!
It's a shorter episode this time around though, as Darryl is flying solo. It means there's not so much discussion, but at least you get to listen to Darryl rambling about stuff and attempting to justify his weird opinions!
Now that Melody of Memories has been out for a little while, we've decided to do a full-on spoilercast to run-through everything relating to the ending!
That then leads into discussions about the future of the Kingdom Hearts franchise, as there were some quotes from a recent Dengeki Interview that tie-in well with content that was shown within the ending of the game.
Final Fantasy II released not too long after its predecessor, but even though some elements were similar, others were vastly different.
During this podcast, Lauren and Darryl talk about their recent experiences with the game, running through the story, gameplay, music and why Final Fantasy II often features at the bottom of most people's tier lists!
Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory has now released and we have plenty of thoughts about what was housed within!
It means we're going to be talking about gameplay and thoughts about how the final product has turned out compared to initial impressions. But there's also time for some spoiler discussion too relating to the ending and what it means for the future of the franchise!
We have new information relating to Final Fantasy XVI and we couldn't be more excited to run-through all of the tiny details that lay within!
Throughout this episode we discuss the characters and world, while also talking about what we're hoping to see from the next media blast.
With a new console generation now just weeks away, how will it affect Kingdom Hearts? Will Square Enix produce a new suite of re-releases of the original Kingdom Heart series, or will backwards compatibility suffice?
In addition to this main discussion point, there is a whole host of news to run-through, such as the potential for a collaboration with Final Fantasy XIV and how Melody of Memories came to be!
With numerous video games properties being made into Netflix shows, this episode we discuss the potential for Final Fantasy.
It makes for a lively topic, as Lauren and Darryl pick two different Final Fantasy games that could work and two different formats as well.
We hope you enjoy the discussion and we can't wait to hear what your recommendations would be!
Square Enix has released a demo for Kingdom Hearts Melody of Memory and we've been playing it a ton!
Famitsu also released an interview with the composers who worked on the Kingdom Hearts 3 soundtrack and they talked in-depth about production.
In addition, there are also plenty of questions to discuss, such as the whether Kingdom Hearts will come to the Switch and viable plots for Kingdom Hearts 4!
Final Fantasy has a long and rich history and for today's episode, we figured it would be a nice change of pace to move away from Final Fantasy XVI and talk about where it all began.
It leads to a spirited discussion that has numerous segues (sorry!) and hopefully as we continue on with our journey, there will be many more opportunities to talk about the classics.
