Years ago, Activision and Vicarious Visions surprised us nostalgic players when they revealed they will remaster the Playstation classic first three of Naughty Dog’s Crash Bandicoot games.

The following is my thoughts about what I saw.
Sega has been busy promoting the Blue Blur lately, here is what’s up if you are missing out according to the Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter.
Free DLC for Sonic Forces
Released last year for a low price, Sonic Forces will be getting free DLC but instead of paying for it, it’s free! Players will be able to download Super Sonic and Super Classic Sonic. It’s free and Sega plans to keep it free forever. If you want to transform into Super early in the game, go download this game in any system like PS4, X1 and Switch.
New Sonic comic from IDW
To those who doesn’t know what’s going on, Sega recently signed a partnership with IDW after Sega’s contract with the previous comic company Archies expired. Now in this news, Sega will bring Sonic back into the comic world and already introduced fans an exclusive new character. According to IGN, this new character is named Tangle and she is a new ally to Sonic. The comic series will be out on April this year. IDW is well known for comic series like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Transformers.
Sonic Mania OST
Remember Sonic Mania last year? People praised the game for it’s traditional gameplay and it helped bring in old and new fans to Sonic the Hedgehog. Sega is finally releasing the digital soundtrack to Sonic Mania. Whether you use Amazon (US or UK), iTunes or Google Play, fans/gamers can buy the soundtrack and relieve the game songs.
You can never have too much Sonic the Hedgehog.
Found on Twitter but I found out in Anime News Network, Sonic the Hedgehog game programmer and former leader of Sonic Team Yuji Naka revealed the news that he decided to join the game company Square Enix. He even mentions that he will still be working in video games.
So what does this mean? I believe Sonic will still be in Sega unless something happens but that means the same guy who worked on Sonic games will be lending a hand in Square Enix team and be involved projects such as Final Fantasy or other well known titles.
Here are some interesting facts:
- Yuji Nake joined Sega in 1984 but starting developing Sonic the Hedgehog in 1990.
- He left Sega and formed his own team named Prope in 2006. (This is probably the same time where Sega split up into teams and made games like Sonic 06 and Wii game Sonic and the Secret Rings.)
- He was the producer to the OVA anime Sonic the Hedgehog in 1996 and executive producer to 2003 Sonic X anime.
- In Prope, he made games like Rodea the Sky Soldier, Fishing Resort and Ivy the Kiwi?
An original episode told from the perspective of Ignis. With Altissia in ruins after the Trial of Leviathan, Ignis faces the Niflheim Empire to protect Noctis at all costs. Joining him along the way is Ravus, high commander of the Niflheim Empire, who is determined to rescue his sister Lunafreya.
Featuring fast-paced battles and multiple endings, it is finally time to learn about the untold events that transpired during one of the most dramatic moments in FINAL FANTASY XV.
(May contain spoilers if you have went past Chapter 9 with the fight with Leviathan. Overall, I won’t spoil the game’s story)
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!
The upcoming game Dragon Ball FighterZ is coming real quick this month and many fans of the series are eager to try out the mechanics. Announced by Crunchyroll, the open beta for the game will be available on January 14th and will end on the 16th. Players who preordered the game already, will be able to play the beta on Jan 13th, one day ahead. The game will have the following playable characters:

Mark your calenedars if you want to try this game before you buy. This game will come out for PS4, X1 and PC on Jan 26th.
Mentioned on Twitter y Playstation LifeStyle and GameSpot, there appears to be news in regards to Final Fantasy XV.
According to GameSpot, ESRB might have left a leak because in the game boards, there is a rating for a game called Final Fantasy XV: Royal Edition. Just like most games that is called Game of the Year, this updated edition will have the main Final Fantasy XV game along with DLC episodes (Episode Gladiolus, Prompto and Ignis). If this leak is true, people who wants to get into Final Fantasy XV will be happy to know that they can get their hands on this game for all the updates. This game will be for PS4 and Xbox One.
Square Enix also mentioned besides this and the upcoming PC game, 2018 is going to be really big for FFXV. Since I already have the DLC episodes, I will not buy this Royal Edition. So far, this news is only a leak but I believe this game will be real news.
