12/20/2013 - JoJo's Bizarre Adventure All Star Battle coming in Spring 2014
A Golden Wind blasts over JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle!

New assets and features for the 5th Chapter!

Developed by the Japanese studio CyberConnect 2, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle is coming to Europe and Australasia in spring 2014 and promising hours of frenzied battles!

In order to follow the acclaimed piece of art created by Hirohoki Araki, CyberConnect2 closely replicated Moves from the Manga; the Joestars, their friends and their enemies will take advantage of their powerful and unique Heart Heat Attack (HHA) and Great Heart Heat Attack (GHA). The first one, the HHA, is a Special Attack taking each character’s ability to its paroxysm; striking it will cost the player one Heart Heat Gauge (filled while the players are fighting)! The second one, the GHA, is an Ultimate Attack mastered by JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle fighters! Blasting it will cost the player two Heart Heat Gauges and will cause deadly damages to the opponent while the screen gets fully covered with JoJo-esque effects!

Chapter 5: Golden Wind – Italy – In 2001, Koichi Hirose follows Kujo Jotaro’s request and goes to Naples in order to find a special person... This person turns out to be Gio rno Gio vana. The whole chapter focuses on the new JoJo and his quest of becoming the new Mafia boss in order to make Naples a better place to live! This risky challenge leads Gio rno Gio vana in the hearth of the “Passione” mob. After being put in the group of Bruno Bucciarati, JoJo manages to change Guido Mista, Narancia Ghirga and some other mobsters mind; they decided to agree with his vision of the Mafia! Following this, our hero’s group tries to discover who “the Boss” is. Is Diabolo the mafia boss? Is he behind all the drug dealing activities …? Terrible events await the players on Chapter 5!

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle will be available in spring 2014 in Europe & Australasia. For the latest news and updates, join us on

12/17/2013 - FINAL FANTASY XIV Patch 2.1 Launches Today

FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn Patch 2.1 Launches Today 

LOS ANGELES (Dec. 17, 2013) – Square Enix, Inc. today announced the new Patch 2.1 update for FiNAL FANTASY® XIV: A Realm Reborn is now available for players. 


Dubbed A REALM AWOKEN, the Patch 2.1 update offers exciting new gameplay content, including: 

·The Crystal Tower: Reaching to the heavens, this massive monolith, long thought to be a legend from eras past, has been unearthed in the wake of the Calamity. What could be the purpose of this crystalline construct, and what forgotten relics now stir within its walls? Those who would unravel these mysteries must first win their way through the Labyrinth of the Ancients, the perilous maze that leads to the entrance of the tower proper.

·The Wolves’ Den: Named after a crew of Roegadyn Sea Wolves that first discovered this odd crucible-shaped island off the shores of Limsa Lominsa, this PvP Arena will soon open to all the Grand Companies of Eorzea, in the hope that the staged battles held here will raise the realm’s defences.

·Housing: The Lavender Beds (Gridania), the Goblet (Ul’dah) and Mist (Limsa Lominsa) are the three distinctive residential districts of each of the city-states. Enjoy creating a unique base of operations for your free company members to call home. Purchase a plot of land and then start your build, with customizable fixtures for the house, as well as interior and exterior decorations and furnishings.

·Thornmarch: The Moogles are trying to resurrect their legendary leader, Good King Moggle Mog XII. Will the return of this mythical being pose a threat for the Warriors of Light?

·Beast Tribe Quests: Learn about the beast tribes of Eorzea in these daily quests.

·Hildibrand, Agent of Enquiry: Nashu Mhakarraca, Hildibrand’s faithful assistant will need to muster up all her powers of deduction to unravel the many mysteries that beleaguer Eorzea. Unusual zombie activity in Ul’dah, you say? This smells like a case!

·Pharos Sirius: This abandoned lighthouse, strikingly pierced by corrupted crystals, has been made the domain of the siren of Umbra. Adventurers must venture within and defeat the seductress and her legion of undead minions if this beacon of civilization is to shine once more.

·Duty Roulette: The Duty Roulette allows players to enter instanced dungeons, trials and guildhests at random. There are four roulette categories, each of which can be selected once per day and adventurers can reap some great bonus rewards.

·New extreme battles against three primals: Garuda, Titan and Ifrit.

·The Minstrel’s Ballad: Ultima’s Bane Test yourself against the Ultima Weapon once more in this new hard-mode boss battle.

·Main Scenario Quests: Where there is light, there will always be darkness. The beast tribes persist in their efforts to summon the primals. The once defeated Garlean forces resurface, harbouring renewed ambitions of conquest. And the baleful Ascians lurk in the shadows, their presence rousing dark forces long since forgotten.

FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn is rated T (Teen). Please visit the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) website at www.esrb.org for more information about ratings.
