Final Fantasy Dimensions (ファイナルファンタジー レジェンズ 光と闇の戦士, Fainaru Fantajī Rejenzu Hikari to Yami no Senshi?, lit. Final Fantasy Legends: Warriors of Light and Darkness) is a Final Fantasy game for mobile devices. It is an episodic game, released starting in September 2010 on the i-mode distribution service and winter 2010 for the EZweb distribution service.

"Eyes on Me" is the theme song of Final Fantasy VIII. Composed by Nobuo Uematsu, English lyrics by Kako Someya, and performed by Hong Kong pop diva Faye Wong, the song went on to sell a record breaking 400,000 copies. It also won "Song of the Year (Western Music)" at the 14th Annual Japan Gold Disc Awards in 1999. This was the first time a song from a video game ever won the honor.
The game developers had originally planned to use a famous vocalist in the ending of Final Fantasy VII, but the plan didn't go through due to being too abrupt, and there was no suitable theme in the story for a vocal song to suddenly come up in the ending. In Final Fantasy VIII the song has a meaning in the plot, and it relates to the game's main characters. Uematsu wrote a ballad he thought would suit the theme and asked everyone to bring in CDs with vocalists who would match it. (more...)

Our clan has a very strict entrance examination. We should begin yours at once... And you pass. Moogles are quick to make up their minds, kupo.

Only the chosen may enter that land. The chosen will touch all creation, and obtain that which is truth. It is reason outside of reason—the reason of Agito. It is power—the authority of Agito. The sage proclaims: 'In all things, there is meaning. In all things, mourning will end. Make your choice: will you choose reason, or the power of kings?'
And unto him, I reply: 'I will become Agito. I will sound the knell to shake all the world. When nine and nine meet nine, the depths of reason shall stir. When the seal of creation is broken, a voice like thunder shall sound, and thou shalt know—we have arrived.'
The Nameless Tome 14:7
Agito (アギト, Agito?) is a term from the world of Orience in Final Fantasy Type-0 and its prequel Final Fantasy Agito.

Now, become a Warrior of Light and head to the distant land of Luxendarc...
Although the game has an original title, it is considered a spiritual successor of Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light, a "gaiden" or "spin-off" of the main Final Fantasy series, by its creators. The game follows the traditional Final Fantasy storyline of crystals and the Warriors of Light with the traditional job system gameplay, and the "Flying Fairy" in the Japanese title alludes to Final Fantasy by having the same initials.
Bravely Default: For the Sequel, the upgraded version of the original game upon which the American and European versions of Bravely Default are based, was released on December 5, 2013, in Japan. The game spawned a free-to-play web browser game, Bravely Default: Praying Brage, and a sequel, Bravely Second: End Layer. Another game called Bravely Archive, was released in Japan targeting mobile devices in January 2015. (more...)

I'm a big fan of Lord Avon's plays. I have—I mean, I've seen all of them. 'I Want to Be Your Canary' is one of my favorites!

Ajora was born in the Lesalian city of Bervenia twelve centuries ago. Raised in Milados, he preached openly about the coming of Paradise. This infuriated the Pharist priests, and the Holy Ydoran Empire hanged him as a traitor. When Mullonde, the center of Pharist teachings, then sank into the sea, Ajora's disciples began to preach of his divinity, eventually forming the Church of Glabados.
Zodiac Brave biography
He has two portraits. One depicts Ajora while he was still alive, and the other is shown in-game during the a scene near the end. That portrait is similar to Alma Beoulve's, only with loose, white hair instead. He uses the unique job class False Saint (or Phony Saint in the PS1 version). (more...)

Pulse fal'Cie and l'Cie are bad news. That's why Cocoon kicked them out. Live too close to the fal'Cie? One-way ticket to Pulse! That's the Purge in a nutshell.
The Purge (パージ, Pāji?) is a form of forced migration and social cleansing in Final Fantasy XIII. It is conducted by the Sanctum, the fal'Cie-run government of Cocoon, to get rid of those believed to have been 'touched' by Gran Pulse.
After a Pulse fal'Cie was discovered within a Pulse Vestige in the town of Bodhum, everyone who was in Bodhum at the time were accused of being tainted by Pulse and the people of Cocoon cried out for their expulsion. The Sanctum's personal army, PSICOM, quarantined the town and rounded up the people, regardless of whether they were citizens or tourists. The deportees were forced to wear "Purge clothing" (restraint garments fitted with a metal device that binds their hands, controlled by a remote held by a PSICOM soldier), and loaded onto "Purge trains," while those who tried to resist or run were fired upon.

This is my partner, Angelo. Angelo is really smart!
Angelo (アンジェロ, Anjero?), full name Sant' Angelo di Roma (サント･アンジェロ･ディ･ローマ, Santo Anjero di Rōma?, lit. Santo Angelo di Roma), is Rinoa's pet dog in Final Fantasy VIII. Despite the masculine name, Angelo is female. Her design is based on a black-tricolor Australian Shepherd that one of Tetsuya Nomura's co-workers owned during the game's production.
Angelo's profile in Final Fantasy VIII Ultimania reveals her full name and date of birth, as well as how Rinoa came to own her: Rinoa found Angelo at the Timber Pet Shop when she was just a puppy. Without telling her father, Rinoa bought Angelo on impulse. (more...)
