For the month of August, everything's come up YELLOW! We're featuring a wide variety of Chocobo themes! KWEH KWEH! Also, an apology for not updating in July. Things were kind of hectic, and my sister dreamweaver just moved, so the update just got away from me.
ALSO - we encourage you to suggest your favorite songs to us! The tracks we have featured in the past are listed below, but if you'd like us to feature one of those tracks again, please let us know! When you suggest a song, we always appreciate a little reason why it's your favorite, but it's not required. I'd like to get a list made for upcoming months:

(¯`·-..· Chocobo Theme Medley ·..-·´¯)
I couldn't choose just one, so I chose them all! Or at least most of them. This is a collection of the chocobo themes that play by default when you ride them. The themesong wasn't introduced until Final Fantasy II, when the creatures made their first appearance in the series. From that point on, they have remained an iconic and key staple in the series. They are typically one of the first modes of transportation the player receives during gameplay.
Which chocobo theme is your favorite, and which chocobo design is your favorite? I'm partial to FFX's theme, Brass de Chocobo, but my favorite design so far has been FFXV's chocobos!
--RECENT NEWS IN FINAL FANTASY--
Nintendo announced that Final Fantasy VI (titled as "Final Fantasy III", which was the original American release title) will be available on the SNES Classic Edition that is going on sale in September.
Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age (the HD remaster of the original FFXII) was released on July 11, 2017 for Playstation 4 in Europe and America, and on July 13, 2017 in Japan. There is the option to speed up gameplay. Additionally, it was announced that the "forbidden" treasure rule was removed from the remaster, so players don't have to fear missing out on the Zodiac Spear. (In the original game, there were certain treasure chests that were "forbidden" and opening them accidentally would ruin all chances of getting the strongest weapon in the game.)
A closed beta for the Final Fantasy XV multiplayer expansion, "Comrades", is currently in progress. To be part of the closed beta, players needed to meet two requirements between August 3-8: 1) own a season pass, and 2) be a Playstation Plus / XBox Live Gold member. Comrades allows players to create their own kingsglaive avatar (in the full version they can alternatively choose to play as one of the four protagonists) and can complete missions with up to three other players.
Final Fantasy XV's July update reopened the Moogle Chocobo Carnival for players who missed it during its January-February run. In order to play the MCC, players must either download the free Holiday Pack DLC or own the season pass and download the Holiday Pack+ DLC. Once one is installed, players can access the MCC by selecting "Special" on the game's main menu.
The July update also added the long-awaited Magitek Exosuit attire. Described as "A special suit recovered and repurposed by Cid. Uses magitek energy to generate a barrier that wards the wearer from harm", it allows the wearer to generate an invincible barrier for as long as the suit's 'damage counter' is filled. Once depleted, the wearer is no longer invincible. The suit takes 20 real-world hours to recharge, starting from the first strike of damage absorbed. (This could be cheated by moving the game system's time forward, but it will not work if the player does this then sets the clock back to the correct time again.)
Finally, the July update added a new sidequest/hunt that can be accessed in Meldacio Hunter HQ after chapter 8. It pits the party against a new daemon named Melusine, and also introduces Cross Chain attacks into the main game, which can be used against most other bosses or large enemies. Cross Chains were originally used in Episode Duscae.
