Final Fantasy XV: Royal Edition news confirmed and PC updates!

You may already know this but I am a huge fan of Final Fantasy XV. Final Fantasy is my all time favorite video game besides Kingdom Hearts and Sonic the Hedgehog. You might be wondering, “Matt, you always talk about this game and I want to try this but I hear there’s DLC, what should I do?”

I got some exciting news for newcomers and returning fans. Revealed in Twitter by the official Final Fantasy XV account, Square Enix will be re-releasing Final Fantasy XV with all the recent updates from 2017 DLC and new content. The new version is called Final Fantasy XV: Royal Edition. Based on the trailer, this game will be for PS4 and Xbox One. The game will include all the recent DLC episodes (Gladiolus. Prompto, and Ignis) including the Multiplayer Expansion: Comrades; this also includes free updates like the Regalia-D and the ability to change characters in the main game. With an addition, the new version will include a new attack for the Armiger and a an expansion to Insomnia. In the video, playing as the timeskip Noctis, you will be able to explore an all new dungeon in the Ruins of Insomnia and encounter new bosses and view new additional cutscenes in which players will see Cor in his new 10 year skip form!

However, if you already have the game and you don’t want to buy another copy of the game, I got some positive news for you. According to GameSpot, there will be a separate Royal Edition for the PSN and Xbox Store for $20 (this is for the USA and I don’t what’s going to cost at the UK). Buying the physical version of Royal Edition will be $50 or £40 (UK). This new version will have a new cover like above designed by Yoshitaka Amano.

To be honest, I wish this free like how Street Fighter V did it when you already have the game, you can download the free Arcade Edition.

But wait there’s more!

If you want to play Final Fantasy XV but you don’t have a console, but you got a PC, I got some new good news. Already mentioned, Final Fantasy XV will be joining PC. However, also announced on Twitter, the game will also include the recent Royal Edition and all the free past DLCs like the Episodes and Comrades.

According to a Twitter FFXV friend I follow, Maku posted a small graph detailing on the bonus incentives if you preorder Final Fantasy XV PC. Depending where you get the PC game like Windows, Steam or Origins, you will be getting some bonuses.

 

Final Fantasy XV: Royal Edition and the PC version will be released at the same day on March 6th, 2018!

Discotek Movie news: Blu-Ray anime and movies!

It’s always good news when a company licenses and releases an anime movie especially if it was previously exclusive for Japan.

Announced at Twitter and Anime News Network, Discotek, English anime license company, revealed some anime movie titles that they were able to license and are set to be released for North America on March 27!

For movies, Discotek will be releasing a double-featured set of the movie based on the series Zatch Bell. The collection will have all the two movies. The first movie is called 101st Devil and the second movie is Attack of the Mechavulcan. Both these movies will be in English Sub only. Here is the synopsis for both:

Zatch Bell: 101st Devil:

While the battle to determine the next king of the demon realm has often been fraught, the rules were always clear: 100 demon children partnered with 100 humans would challenge each other, using 100 magical books. What none of them knew was that there was a 101st magical book, powerful enough to stop any of the others. Gash and Kiyomaro must begin a journey that will take them into the demon realm to confront the mysteries of Gash’s past. But will they escape in time to help their friends in a battle with a seemingly unstoppable enemy.

Zatch Bell: Attack of the Mechavulcan:

As Kiyomaro races to catch the bus to seaside camp, little does he know that Dr. M2, a demonic magic scientist from the future, has sent out a robot to kidnap him. He’s trapped in limbo with the mad magic scientist who wants to be his partner and an army of Vulcan robot lookalikes. Dr. M2 sends a robot to pretend to befriend Gash, keeping him away from Kiyomaro until M2 can abscond with the teen genius to the future. In the end, it comes down to saving the world with a little help from their friends…

 

Even though FUNimation dubbed the anime TV series of Toriko, Discotek was able to license the movie Toriko: Secret Recipe of the Gourmet God. The movie will be subtitled. Here is the synopsis for the movie:

In a world where the most delicious ingredients come from dangerous lands and deadly beasts, only the strongest and bravest can be true gourmands. Toriko is a Gourmet Hunter, a mighty warrior with Gourmet Cells. These can be implanted into humans, and those who successfully intergrate them see rapid enhancement of their particular traits, alowing them to gain superhuman abilities. Together with his chef partner Komatsu, he seeks out the world’s most delicious foods! Their latest mission is to investigate a mysterious biotope said to house a special recipe left there by the world’s most legendary hunter, Acacia. But a mysterious and deadly hunter named Girim interrupts, declaring that he will find Acacia’s legacy and keep it for himself! When his power proves too overwhelming even for Toriko, allies and enemies alike must work together, to stop Girim before it’s too late!

Discotek will also releasing the classic series Great Mazinger on DVD for English Subtitles. The DVD will have all episode!

Synopsis:

After a long and difficult battle, Dr. Hell and his malicious forces have been defeated. While it seems as though peace has been achieved, a much stronger evil has arisen; the Mycenaean Empire. Lead by the Emperor of Darkness, they waste no time to dispatch their fearsome Battle Beasts, which easily defeat Mazinger Z. As Koji and Sayaka leave for the United States, it’s up to skilled pilot, Tetsuya Tsurugi, and his new and improved Great Mazinger to take a stand!

Another classic title joining the news is a classic anthology collection of OVA titled Robot Carnival. The DVD collection will be in Blu-Ray and it will have subtitles and the original dub!

Wikipedia synopsis:

It consists of nine shorts by different well-known directors, many of whom started out as animators with little to no directing experience. Each has a distinctive animation style and story ranging from comedic to dramatic storylines. The music for all of the segments was composed by Joe Hisaishi.

Last but not least, they also got the license to release a blu-ray collection of Tenjho Tenge! The anime will be available with English Sub and Dub. If you enjoy the catchiest intro song, relieve it again in this new edition.

Wikipedia Synopsis:

The plot begins with Souichiro Nagi and his friend Bob Makihara going to their first day of high school at Toudou Academy. They had intended to rule the school by beating up anybody that got in their way, as they had done at their previous schools. They soon learn that Toudou is no ordinary high school, but rather a school that was founded to teach and integrate different fighting styles. Its students are skilled in the various arts of combat with some students possessing supernatural abilities, such as pyrokinesis, precognition, and superhuman strength based on the abilities to use their “spirit” or “ki” in Japanese. After an altercation with the Executive Council, Souichiro and Bob join the only surviving club that opposes them, the Juken club. As the storyline develops, both groups find they are becoming increasingly involved in a long enduring conflict that was left unresolved from the Japanese Feudal era by some of the characters’ ancestors.

Good news have been spreading all over online and it involves Amazon and anime fans.

Fans not only had to pay for a Prime Subscription but they also had to pay $5 a month to use Anime Strike. If people were willing to pay both subscriptions, fans would be able to stream free anime and exclusive Amazon anime online and offline.

New Pokemon movie in 2018: Ash has a new look! Thank you Anime Girls NYC

971C3DBA-01B3-4D9A-8CBD-C33DF060A6FC

As usual, I am starting to develop a bad habit of writing news a little bit late, but not right now! Thanks to a blogger friend of mine, Anime Girls NYC, I found out there’s another new movie coming out in 2018 and it’s Pokemon! According to her blog, the same team who did the movie “I Choose You!” will be part of this movie and creating the story.

I had to do some research as well and based on the trailer, another team changed Ash’s appearance as oppose to his Sun and Moon version. From the looks of the trailer and trailer, the movie will probably be taking place in Sun and Moon but Ash doesn’t look like his anime version from the TV series. According to Polygon, Attack on Titan studio WIT Studios took over the design of Ash. If you like the designs of Attack on Titan, I hope you like their style for this Pokemon movie. The movie will be released in theaters in Japan on July 13, 2018.

I want to say thank you to Anime Girls NYC for the news and updates. Go visit her site for more anime content!
