Well, you can say that’s its been a trying weekend for a number of us – two in particular. But, we need to move on and remember something else that happened this past week: Square Enix announced the localization of Final Fantasy: Airborne Brigade to coincide with the 25th anniversary. Sure, it’s a bit questionable but it gave the Oprainfall Substitute Retro Commercial Research Team (in other words, me) something to think about. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you some old school Final Fantasy commercials.
The first comes from Japan.
Then we get a western Final Fantasy 2 commercial.
Finally, a Moogle runs casting Final Fantasy 3.
I never knew Moogles could be so fickle. Anyways, here’s the Wrap-Up for this past week:
We get new trailers for a couple of games. Two come from Professor Layton Vs. Ace Attorney (Trailer 1, Trailer 2) and we get the first western look at Etrian Odyssey IV.
Speaking of new looks, 50 new screenshots have been revealed for Shin Megami Tensei IV.
Pier Solar HD made its funding goal, translation goal, Dreamcast goal, Director’s cut goal, and OUYA port goal. At this rate, it should even makes its Wii U port goal as well. In addition to Pier Solar, we focus on the L.A. Game Space in our first Crowd Funding spotlight feature.
Campaign Hub: We welcome We Desire Breath of Fire and the Senran International Academy. Also, Project Crystallis talks about recent comments from Square Enix, We Desire Breath of Fire hits the ground running, and Bring Bravely Default to the West reports on a recent trademark by Square Enix for All The Bravest. We, along with BBDW, hope that it will be Bravely Default.
For reviews, Rose Weitz takes on Nintendo Land, Jonathan Higgins ventures through New Super Mario Bros. U, and Devin Kotani rides with Death in Darksiders II. In addition, Jonathan makes Contact this week’s Game of the Past and Kyle Emch says that Kirby’s Adventure holds up.
