Final Fantasy Artist Yoshitaka Amano Has Done A Vogue Cover

For its first issue of 2020, Vogue Italia is trying something new (and very old), by ditching photography and devoting an entire edition to fashion illustration. There’ll be seven different covers made to celebrate this, and one of them has been done by Yoshitaka Amano, who many of you will know for his extensive work on the Final Fantasy series .

There’s a game I keep coming back to every few years. It’s Lost Odyssey for the Xbox 360. Developed by Hironobu Sakaguchi’s Mistwalker Studios, it’s basically Final Fantasy mixed with the old show about immortals, Highlander.

The first two times I played it, I got to the White...

Fight, Magic, Item: The Comfort Of Simple RPGs

Fight, Magic, Item: The Comfort Of Simple RPGs

The last two games I played on my Switch were the original Dragon Quest and Breath of Fire, two early examples of the Japanese role-playing game. Today, they might seem overly simplistic: grind for levels, brute-force through a boss, repeat. These two games are, if anything, even more simplistic than their peers. And right now, that’s just what I want.

I need to admit now that, until this...

Our Best (And Worst) Memories Of The PlayStation, 25 Years Later

Our Best (And Worst) Memories Of The PlayStation, 25 Years Later

On this day 25 years ago, the Sony PlayStation released in Japan. A lot of us here at Kotaku have pretty fond memories of the PlayStation, from bartering for access with our siblings to sitting in dark, dusty basements, illuminated only by the light of an old TV and some sharp, sharp polygons. Take a walk down memory lane with us.

The original PlayStation hit Japanese shops on December 3,...

Final Fantasy XV Has One Of The Best Endings In The Series

Final Fantasy XV Has One Of The Best Endings In The Series

Every Final Fantasy game has had special meaning to me, even the more controversial ones like X-2 and XIII. While they have their flaws, their incredible production values and Square Enix’s desire to innovate on the series makes every iteration feel like a brand new experience. As much as I wanted to, I didn’t get to FFXV right away, because life got in the way. That might have been a...

Final Fantasy VIII’s Surprise Twist Nearly Ruined It For Me

Final Fantasy VIII’s Surprise Twist Nearly Ruined It For Me

Final Fantasy VIII is easily one of the most action-packed and compelling games in the series. It was amazing when it first came out, and as I play through the recently-released remastered version, I’m enjoying it just as much. But even 20 years later, some of the choices made by FF8's story are still confusing.

Waltz For The Moon

In many ways, FF8 forces you as a player to unlearn almost all...

I Have Had It With Games That Always Send Me On Detours
Kotaku Game DiaryDaily thoughts from a Kotaku staffer about a game we're playing.  

I don’t trust waypoints anymore. You know, those little icons on video game maps that show you where your goal is? They’re filthy liars, and I wouldn’t trust them with my coffee money.

It happens all the time: A character will tell me that I need to get to a certain location to get a specific whatsit, and upon...

Final Fantasy XIV's Depiction Of The World Ending Is A Bit Too Real

To quote my 100% non-fictional friend Barret Wallace: “Planet’s dyin’, Cloud.” As our society feels closer and closer to an irrevocable change, as the Amazon rainforest burns and the ice caps continue to melt, I find the fragility of our world reflected in the narratives of my favorite games. Final Fantasy XIV’s latest expansion, Shadowbringers, has been on my mind ever since I finished it....

Finding An Old Game Boy Advance Feels Like Slipping Into A Storybook

Finding An Old Game Boy Advance Feels Like Slipping Into A Storybook

Not too long ago, I got a box from my folks with a bunch of stuff I had been keeping in their attic. I live in New York, where boxes are generally bad news: They’re full of stuff, and when you take stuff out of a box, you have to find a place to put it. Sometimes boxes are nice, though. Sometimes you find stuff you forgot you had, like my old Game Boy Advance SP.

I never had any iteration of...
