WELCOME BACK to your monthly FinalFantasy-Eternal updates! We sincerely apologize for the lack of updates, but we're back up and running as normal, giving you all the latests updates in the world of Final Fantasy! For the month of February we're celebrating Final Fantasy love with the Final Fantasy VIII track "Eyes on Me"!
(¯`·-..· Eyes On Me
Eyes on Me signifies the love between Julia and Laguna who, in the end, did not end up together -- but also represents the growing love between Squall and Rinoa. During the development of Final Fantasy VII, they had wanted to create a vocal theme for the ending at the last minute. This plan got pushed back due to the fact that it was so abrupt, and they hadn't planned a suitable theme in the story to warrant a vocal song at the end. And so Final Fantasy VIII got the vocal theme treatment to compliment the story's romance parallels.
How do you feel about this song? Do you like it? Did it have an effect on you? Leave a comment with your opinion on the song!

Final Fantasy XV is no longer a part of the Fabula Nova Crytallis subseries, and therefore no longer shares the same mythos as Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy Type-0. This was made official at Pax 2015.
"Dawn 2.0" Trailer for Final Fantasy XV released to showcase the connection between Noctis and Luna. A demo video of Chocobo Riding and Fishing in-game was released. During an Active Time Report, it was revealed that Noctis's father, King Regis erected a magical barrier around the city for protection, but keeping the barrier going eats away at his body, causing him to age quickly. It was also revealed that Luna is an oracle who can communicate with the gods.

Final Fantasy VII remake will be released in multiple parts. Yoshinori Kitase and Tetsuya Nomura have explained that because of the level of quality that they are remaking it with, as well as the density of the story, it would not be possible to release it as one volume. As it stands, the first part of Final Fantasy is complete. The first part will likely develop Biggs, Wedge, and Jessie further and give them more of a story than they were given in the original. Kitase and Nomura have also stated that Cloud's hallucination scenes will become more meaningful. They plan on using the same voice actors that were used in Advent Children (as they did with Crisis Core), except for Red XIII who may have a different voice actor. They have also announced a unique feature in the battle system, separate from limit breaks, that will differ based on the player's fighting style. Specific details on this matter have yet to be revealed.
Lightning Returns is currently available on Steam for $19.99 USD.

Final Fantasy XV and World of Final Fantasy made appearances at Taipei Game Show last week (January 29th through February 2nd). While we're still awaiting detail of all that was shown, we do have information that an upcoming demo for Final Fantasy XV will be released that will feature a young Noctis. The Active Time Reports that detail the game's progress will also be coming to an end apparently. Director Hajime Tabata stated that he won't be sharing more information about the game until it's ready for release. This further supports the rumors of a 2016 release.
Some fun tidbits that were revealed about the game:
-If you don’t buy gas for Noctis’ car, you will end up pushing it.
-Dragoon, AKA Aranea Highwind, apparently has a secret identity. Is she Lunafreya? Or is she connected to Noctis somehow? Tabata won’t speak for now.
-Switching weapons and aerial combat has been made easier.
-You can steal magitek weapons, but you won’t be able to use magitek armor.
-As demonstrated in the last video, you can destroy Nilfheim’s entire base if you want to, presumably after dealing with Dragoon.
"**The release date for Final Fantasy XV is to be announced during an event called Uncovered: Final Fantasy XV on March 20th at Shrine Auditorium in LA.**
