The new mech game is called Left Alive, and it’s coming to PlayStation 4 and PC (Steam) next year. A short teaser trailer showing a war-torn world was shown (above). The game is not yet rated and we know nothing beyond the teaser, the poster, and the team behind it.

The developers include mech game veterans Toshifumi Nabeshima (Armored Core) and takayuki Yanse (Mobile Suit Gundam, Xenoblade Chronicles X).

Final Fantasy IX

Square Enix announced the digital re-release of Final Fantasy IX on PlayStation 4 – available right now. It’s not a full HD remaster but does include some new features, including HD movies and character models, auto-saves, and PS4 trophies. It also includes several boosters allowing you to quickly make your way through the game, such as No Encounters and Maximize Player Levels.

Final Fantasy IX is currently available at a discounted price of $16.79 (20% off) until September 26.

The newest fighter to join the roster of brawler Dissidia Final Fantasy NT was revealed during TGS. It’s Final Fantasy XV’s Prince Noctis. The trailer also shows off some story and a lot of gameplay, including the newly revealed player vs. summons battle mode.

Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is due out on PlayStation 4 January 30, 2018.
