WOW, that was some April Fool's joke. Gaming-Intelligence surely fooled me (Jenova7).
I got all excited about it until someone told me it was fake. That just pissed me off.
Oh well, we got to thank them for their hard work because those images looked really
Yeah this is a big update in a long time. Well, here it is... the scoop on Final Fantasy Gaiden.
These screenshots and information are from Gaming Intelligence.
According to them, this is an add-on for Final Fantasy VIII. The main character is Seifer, who was Squall's
rival in Final Fantasy VIII. Final Fantasy Gaiden utilizes the same graphics as Final Fantasy VIII, and hopefully
will have the same spectacular FMVs. The game is only going to be 2 CDs and cost about $32 US. It will be released
as Hironobu Sakaguchi hinted- September 9, 1999 or 9/9/99. Expect more on this upcoming sequel. But in the mean time,

According to Gaming-Intelligence, there's a bug in Final Fantasy VIII. The bug occurs on the third disc when one must finish a given area within a certain amount of time.

Luckily the bug will be corrected by the time it reaches North American shores. Also, Electronic Boutique is taking

It sold approximately 2.5 million copies in its first five days of release which is pretty
unbelievable. It already broke some pre-sales records and now it's breaking sales records.
How cool of such a great game selling a hell of a lot of copies. Wonder what's going to happen
when it comes to America. If you want the translation, go to The Unofficial FF8 Homepage

$1,000,000 US to get Hong Kong singer Faye Wong to sing.
