Final Fantasy fan art with a Western touch creates illustrations just right for any Disney fan

Just as languages around the world are each unique yet beautiful, art has also developed its own flavor depending on where you are from. When comparing Western and Asian animation, there is a distinct style difference when it comes to the shape of faces, size of facial features, and the overall aesthetic. Both styles are very appealing, but when push comes to shove, all of us probably have a preference between the two.

Art is also a conversation though, and it can be transposed between two different worlds, such as Western art with an Asian flair or vice versa. One artist’s rendition of Final Fantasy characters drawn with a Western touch is making us super-excited because they look like they are ready for their Disney close-ups.

Final Fantasy’s Cloud gets special illustrated birthday card from designer Tetsuya Nomura

If you’re putting together a profile for a video game or anime character, the inclusion of certain bits of information are optional, such as favorite food, hobby, or breast weight. But just about every fictional character coming from Japan has an official birthday. As a matter of fact, it’s become such a standard bit of background information for anime and video game characters that you can search online and find dozens to sing happy birthday to on any given day.

This week, though, was the birthday of an especially popular figure: Cloud Strife. Not only did the hero of Final Fantasy VII hero receive plenty of warm wishes from fans, he also got an illustrated birthday card from his designer himself, Tetsuya Nomura.

Final Fantasy fans want more remakes, so will Square Enix listen?

With the recent “surprise” announcement that Final Fantasy VII is being remade, fans are wondering if Square Enix will start taking more requests. The pleas from gamers for a FF VII remake began way back in 2005 when the opening sequence for the game was recreated using the graphics capability of the PS3. So if the famous video game company is willing to finally give the fans what they have been asking for, why not ask for more?

A petition has been started that is asking Square Enix to remake another classic from their catalog of “final” role-playing games. Will the gaming company listen to their fans, or will it be another long wait for Final Fantasy enthusiasts?

Yes, Cloud will still wear a dress in the Final Fantasy VII remake

With the recent announcement of a Final Fantasy VII remake, gamers are already starting to imagine which parts from the RPG classic will be making the trip to the PlayStation 4. While they haven’t been officially announced, we’ll probably once again see the scene where Sephiroth flashes video gaming’s most memorable stink eye in front of a fiery backdrop, the moment when Cloud and childhood friend Tifa share a heart-to-heart talk in a starlit playground, and also that one part where the spikey-haired hero wades into the water holding Aerith (I think he was trying to teach her to swim or something, but I don’t remember exactly).

But while none of those have been officially confirmed for the new game, there is one thing director Tetsuya Nomura has made clear. The part where the main character dresses up as a woman to infiltrate a brothel? Totally going to be in the new Final Fantasy VII.

Final Fantasy VII remake is officially announced, and the video is right here 【E3 2015】

A video game series doesn’t get to its fifteenth installment without a steady string of commercial and/or critical successes, and you’ll find plenty of both in publisher Square Enix’s Final Fantasy franchise. But even as many gamers are looking forward to the exploring, monster-fighting, and camping of Final Fantasy XV, it seems like just as many have been taking a bittersweet glance back at Final Fantasy VII and wistfully asking if Square Enix is ever going to update its aging masterpiece.

The answer is yes, Final Fantasy VII is getting a modern PlayStation 4 remake, and here’s the official video teaser that proves it.

Aerith from Final Fantasy VII’s home valued at nearly $2 million, “Nicest house in sector 5”

Movoto, one of America’s biggest real estate agents, doesn’t just list property, it also has a blog and, more importantly, a very good sense of humour. A few months ago, the site treated manga and anime fans to a tour of Naruto Uzumaki’s house (on the market for just $100,000), but this week they have something special for gamers – the house that used to belong to Aerith from Final Fantasy VII.

If you’re interested in buying the property, though, we hope you’re feeling flush. With 1,176 square feet of floor space and the honour of being “the nicest house in Sector 5”, Aerith’s house is listed for nearly US$2 million, or 37,726,080 Gil to be exact.
