- Square Enix Party 2005 Overview
It's been one busy weekend, and a lot to keep straight, so the Haven offers you this less-than-interactive guide to Square Enix Party 2005. Full Article
- Grandia fights back, but looks a little similar
Square Enix has at long last revealed information concerning Grandia III's battle system, called "initiative points" (doubtless due to poor translation). In battle, a dial appears in the upper left corner, and icons representing characters and enemies spin clockwise until they reach a "Com" line, commands are issued, and they continue to spin until they reach an "Act" line. This is, for those who may remember, a system replicated from the previous Grandia incarnation, and rolled into convenient circular form. Mana Eggs also make an appearance, and when broken will enable stronger spells. Grandia III hits Japan on August 4th. No word yet of a North American release. Official site

So apparently there's some new news regarding the upcoming Square Enix Party 2005, which is set to occur July 30-31 somewhere in Japan. Final Fantasy XII will be there. That fact alone virtually warrants coverage! The details

- Grandia details announced; airship!
The humble deities at Square Enix have blessed their equally-deferential following with some new details on upcoming Playstation 2 RPG, Grandia III. It is not surprising to see that in addition to the presence of many aircraft in the game, the player will be able to control one of these flying marvels to move around the map. Not only this, but the use of a on-board telescope provides countless hours of first-person zooming fun! Following in the footsteps of such classic titles as Final Fantasy and Final Fantasy, this is a move sure to seize audiences for the game's August 4th Japanese release. Famitsu
- Grandia sets out on pre-order campaign
Square Enix has announced that those lucky multitudes who pre-order their upcoming Grandia III will receive a "History of Grandia: Sound Adventure Box". This magical box will include not only the game itself (astonishingly) but also a special soundtrack with tracks from various titles in the series, sure to fetch a pretty imported American penny. Grandia III is set to release on August 4th, priced at 7,980 yen ($74.21 USD). Famitsu
- Famitsu mystery title is Grandia III
The mystery title previously reported to be announced in the pages of an upcoming Famitsu magazine has been revealed to be Grandia III, the next entry in the GameArts RPG series that started on the Saturn. The title is in development for the PS2, while Square Enix plans to release more details late next month. As an added bonus to this riveting news item, here is some Grandia watersport hentai. IGN
- Famitsu actually announces announcement
As mysterious name patents will no longer suffice, Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu has provided that the announcement of a major Square Enix RPG title will be made in their publication. So now, while we all wait for the secret bound in the future pages of Famitsu to unveil itself in the coming week, we wonder: "how long until pre-announcement parties," and "will those parties serve cocktails?" With the current state of events, Final Fantasy XIII wouldn't be a surprising choice, nor can one disavow the potential rear of ugly polymorphism's head. At this point, however, only one thing is for certain: there is no certainty. Ladies and gentlemen, place your bets. Famitsu
