Square Enix has been working tirelessly on their promotion for the recent Final Fantasy titles. In fact, several individuals from Square Enix went on the road during the promotional tour for Final Fantasy Type-0 HD to talk about their jobs in game design and their experience in the game industry.  These lectures were broadcast live on the gaming stream site Twitch.TV, but thankfully these shows were not a one time broadcast. They have been archived on YouTube

The first video I want to show is the lecture Yusuke Naora did at the SMU Guildhall about game art and the artist’s process during a game’s development. The talk focused a lot on Final Fantasy Type-0 HD but they did discuss some of the work that they’re currently doing with Final Fantasy XV.

The second video I’m going to showcase is a lecture at USC where Kazuyuki Ikumori specifically talked about the process of creating in-game cinematics for Final Fantasy titles.

I really hope North America is going to get that Bravely Second title.

Since its release, Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy Curtain Call has received numerous downloadable expansions in the form of extra songs and new characters and earlier this month, Square Enix released another batch of songs, including Final Fantasy X-2‘s “real Emotion”, that players can download to their games for a small fee.

Typically, you can download any DLC songs for $0.99US a piece. However, two of the new songs which were released earlier this month, “Struggle to the Death” from Final Fantasy Legend II and “Devil Lord Confrontation II” from Romancing SaGa 3 can now be downloaded completely free of charge.  The songs will remain free to download until April 1st, 2015.

You must have access to the Nintendo eShop, a copy of the full version of the game, and a Nintendo Network account to download the free songs.  Once downloaded, you can play them as much as you want for as long as you want.
