Dissidia Final Fantasy for console will have a story mode, other enhancements

KitGuru Says: It is great to hear that a version of Final Fantasy XV is running on a PC out there somewhere, even if it is just meant to be a graphical showpiece. And there won't be any delay in updates as a result the console version.

Square Enix still have a large amount of their team working on Final Fantasy XV, Tabata has confirmed that 70% of the development team of the game within Business Division 2 is now still at work on Final Fantasy XV, he told Dualshockers. Three of Square Enix's four yearly quarters have passed, leaving the last three-month quarter (Q4 2017) which ends on March 2017. Square Enix, the developers behind it, simply can't stop working on new releases.

Russian Federation to miss World Athletics Championships in London as doping ban extended
Russian Federation has conceded that some of its athletes cheated but denies the existence of a state-sponsored doping program. Coe meanwhile reiterated the IAAF's commitment to giving clean Russian athletes the possibility to compete as neutrals.

One other surprise tidbit came out of the Final Fantasy XV announcement. Initially released in Japan back in 2015, the game made its way to the west one year later and has recently made the transition from mobile to PC. "While we need to work to develop e-sports offerings over the long term, we wanted to recognise the valuation losses on our books earlier rather than later", said the report.

Ten years and millions upon millions of dollars later, Square Enix was laughing straight to the bank on Final Fantasy XV 's launch day. Starting today, PC gamers will be able to play Mobius Final Fantasy for free via Steam. "Even the foreign pro teams out there have been noticing it".
