For all you Final Fantasy addicts out there it seems like some more prayers have been answered, with Final Fantasy Origins coming to PSN for $9.99. The original games, released on the NES were actually last ditch efforts by Square to stave off bankruptcy, hence the name “Final Fantasy”. Of course it became the huge hit we all know and sequel after sequel was released. I’ve never played the first Final Fantasy games, but if you’re looking to see what started the mammoth game series, here’s your chance.

Final Fantasy 5 coming to your PSP (sometime)
Final Fantasy 5, originally released for the Super Nintendo exclusively in Japan has just been rated as a PSoneclassic for the North American Market. This is great news for RPG fans, because slowly but surely we’re getting all the Final Fantasy games released for our cute little PSPs. The game was released on the PSone in 1998 as an individual title, and later released as part of the Final Fantasy Anthology that also housed FF IV and FF VI.
Another week of waiting at least.
Last week there was an error made on the Playstation Blog saying that they weren’t releasing Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy 6, even though they announced they would. They retracted the games from their announcement, but they haven’t said they’re coming this week…making their error even bigger.
Did they undershoot the release date by 14 days? A month? 6 weeks? This is not only frustrating but confusing! These games were originally rated by the ESRB in April of this year. We still have no date for these games to be released! Crazy! Will we play these before Christmas?
Wow, this is a spectacular failure on the part of the Playstation blog, as everyone saw, Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy 6 were supposed to be released Tuesday, as outlined on the Playstation Blog’s weekly update, the Drop. But recently they updated their twitter saying it was all a mistake, and you can go home. No games for you.
People have been waiting months for these games, (which have been rated by the ESRB numerous times) and now this!?! It’s beginning to look a lot more like the North American Playstation Blog is simply incompetent. They have apologized for this error though, by saying “yeah they’re coming but not this week” . Sadly we already knew that, and have been waiting for months and once again no dates were given for their release.
Finally our collective prayers have been answered.
Square Enix got off their buts and finally got their PSone Classics coming to PSN. We’ve all been waiting months since these games were outed on the ESRB rating website, but their finally there! Tuesday these two originally SNES classics will be coming to PSN. No word on the price yet, but don’t be surprised if they’re both at the 9.99 price point, these games are revered for a reason.
Final Fantasy Type-0 Demos for all!
Hey for all of you PSP gamers who haven’t been given any love this summer, you can check out the demo of Final Fantasy Type-0 available at their website. From what we’ve seen so far the graphics on this thing will blow your mind for the platform and it’s more of an action type RPG than the traditional turn based style that is more frequent on the PSP. Once again there’s no word on if this game will ever make it to Europe and North America, but if you want to take a look you can download it at the link below. To get it to work you’ll have to manually put it into your PSP’s game files, because it won’t work with Media Go.
When Sony started releasing PSP games on the network one of the main criticism (especially with the PSPgo) was that there weren’t many high rated PSP titles on the store that people wanted. Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions is one of those games. It was a remake of the PSone Classic (Final Fantasy Tactics) for the PSP, and it contained new CG cutscenes, some gameplay additions and a few multi-player extras. It’s rated one of the best PSP games to date, (10th best according to gamerankings.com ) and as luck would have it, it’s finally getting released on the Playstation Store this Tuesday.
Release Date: June 2nd, 2009
Original Release Date: 1997
