This dazzling array of fantasy aims to open the gates to the world of JRPGs for all gamers, welcoming both long-time enthusiasts and complete newcomers.
It's disarmingly beautiful, lacquered in charm, complexly elegant, and even a little haunting. It's scheduled for launch sometime in 2014, on PS3 and PS4.

She finds herself in a mysterious land called Lemuria, enjoying the company of an agile little flame named Igniculus. Her adventures to defeat the Black Queen will take her through a host of mystic environs in search of answers and, more importantly, home.

247w ago - A mother is suing Apple after her son's iPod touch allegedly exploded in his pants.
The explosion caused burns to his leg, and interestingly the iPod was apparently in the off position when it exploded.
To quote: Normally the only time our Apple devices make us hot is when we're looking at photos of ourselves on the screen, but unfortunately for one kid in Ohio, his iPod burn was real.
According to a lawsuit filed against Apple, a mother is suing the company after her son's iPod touch allegedly exploded in his pants, causing burns to his leg. Accident, or some self-destruct beta test for the new iPhone?
The suit explains that the iPod touch was sitting in the off position inside the boys pants, when a part of it popped and caused a burning sensation. The boy then stood up and looked down to see that his pants had actually caught on fire.
295w ago - Google engineers have adapted a software programme to help track child sex predators and search for patterns in images of abuse on the web.
Google created the technology for the National Centre for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC).
It was originally developed to block copyrighted videos on the company's YouTube division.
The programme uses pattern recognition to enable analysts to sort and identify files containing child sex abuse.
Google says its aim in teaming up with the centre's Technology Coalition Against Child Pornography is to develop solutions that would make it harder for people to use the web to exploit children or traffic in child pornography.
"You always hope that your work will eventually be used to do some good in the world, and this was an amazing chance to make that hope real," said Google research scientist Shumeet Baluja.
Mr Baluja, who was also the technical leader of the project, said that as more and more predators use the web to ensnare children, "analysts were getting overwhelmed by all of the data they had to sift through".
Since 2002 the NCMEC has pored over 13 million child sex abuse images and videos in an effort to help police identify and rescue children from harm.
