    Ah, another day, another underwhelming mobile announcement from Square-Enix...err, wait, what? They're actually funding a new console RPG? An actual Star Ocean game? Made by Tri-Ace, despite recent news that they were bought by a Japanese mobile firm? Are we 13 days too late for April Fools?

    No, apparently. Famitsu magazine has revealed that there will indeed be a fifth Star Ocean game, this time for PS3 and PS4, unlike the previous entry's initial release solely for the Xbox 360. Star Ocean 5: Integrity and Faithlessness has yet to be formally announced by Square-Enix, which is likely to be what their teaser site will eventually reveal tomorrow.

    In a recent edition of Square Enix Presents: Japan, Final Fantasy developers Yoshinori Kitase and Naoki Hamaguchi were joined by Japanese entertainment personality Asuna to take to the internet with the latest scoop on one of the mobile gaming space's biggest releases yet: the somewhat odd-ball Mevius Final Fantasy.

    FFFMM II - Ultros: An unorthodox adaptation!

    Anyone who has played Final Fantasy VI will be aware of a certain talkative, loveable, and yet terribly perverted purple octopus. The creature’s goofy teeth and mischievously sinister eyes make him one of the funniest, most iconic and expressive monster designs in the series. Although the party fights Ultros four times in the game, his role serves more as light comic-relief than as true sub-villain material for plotline importance. Whilst there will surely be some fans who are frustrated by the goofy character, Ultros has been so warmly received by other fans that he has since made several cameo appearances (and has even been retroactively inserted into remakes and re-releases of earlier FF titles). Ultros is something of an oddity within the FF franchise, and it isn’t always obvious where he hails from. Ultros has his namesake origins in Greek mythology, but other than a handful of nods, the character bears only a small resemblance to his source material. Some of the similarities and ideas expressed in this article admittedly require imagination, but it is nonetheless interesting how faint associations with the original Greek mythological ...
