Does that mean that there'll be more language voice acting diversity aside of the usual Japanese and English VA? It's written a bit ambiguous if you ask me.

<del>If we're now the Lightning Wiki, 'Shinra News' doesn't make much sense. If anyone has any FNC related newspaper titles to suggest, that'd be helpful. The only find I have is in the Brain Blast article. One of the questions refers to an organisation called 'Academia Central Broadcasting Station'. Sounds an awful lot like a news agency ala BBC or Sky (or ABC or FOX if your american). Their acronym (which is the answer to the question) is ACBS.

Something like Datalog / Analects / Sanctum or just a simple Cocoon news-type thing? There must be something around the Lighting trilogy we can use. [[User:AdeusValcross|AdeusValcross]] ([[User talk:AdeusValcross|talk]]) 10:22, April 1, 2015 (UTC)

Haha that's actually brilliant. I lampshaded the news about the cancellation of XV but never even made the connection with this. Touche. [[User:AdeusValcross|AdeusValcross]] ([[User talk:AdeusValcross|talk]]) 14:27, April 1, 2015 (UTC)
 
:BTW was the decision to make everything about Lightning because so many FF players are always hating on her? [[User:AdeusValcross|AdeusValcross]] ([[User talk:AdeusValcross|talk]]) 14:29, April 1, 2015 (UTC)
 
 
LOL even if you didn't notice that it's an AF joke you shouldn't believe that we're changing to Lightning Wiki for real. [[User:Monterossa|Monterossa]] ([[User talk:Monterossa|talk]]) 14:30, April 1, 2015 (UTC)
 
 
Tell me about it! I saw it late last night and even this morning thought nothing of it. Hook, line and sinker. Maybe it's because I secretly want this to become the Lightning wiki... [[User:AdeusValcross|AdeusValcross]] ([[User talk:AdeusValcross|talk]]) 14:46, April 1, 2015 (UTC)
 
 
After last year's April Fool (was totally taken in to the detriment of my pride), I was prepared. I knew for certain that this was a big, fat "April fool!". Not in the best taste, but fairly harmless. --[[User:Crystal Tear|Crystal Tear]] ([[User talk:Crystal Tear|talk]]) 15:39, April 1, 2015 (UTC)
 
 
== Cloud to Appear in SSB4 ==
 
 
As of yesterday, it has been announced that Cloud and Midgar are set to appear in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS as a playable character and stage respectively. Cloud's special moves appear to be based on his limit breaks (Omnislash is his Final Smash, say that ten times), and he has an alternate costume based on his Advent Children attire. As for the stage Midgar, it plays just like Battlefield except that, how I see it, the stage features summons acting as stage hazards, so don't think Cloud can manually slice any stage in half with Zantetsuken. Also, there is going to be a Mii Fighter hat based on the Chocobo. Here's a link to the reveal, or at least the GameXplain upload from the Nintendo Direct.

== FFVI now available on steam ==
 
 
Final Fantasy VI was just released on steam yesterday if anybody out there wants to update it. [[User:Sky Terminal|Sky Terminal]] ([[User talk:Sky Terminal|talk]]) 00:50, December 18, 2015 (UTC)
 
 
==FF NEW==
 
http://www.jp.square-enix.com/FF_NEW/jp/
 
 
Not much information besides being a mobile game, some Amano artwork, and the game director is [[Takashi Tokita]]. The metadata tags also contain "FFLTS" -- an abbreviation they use for [[Final Fantasy Dimensions II]] (which Tokita also directed), which... might mean something, may be accidental. [[User:JBed|JBed]] ([[User talk:JBed|talk]]) 19:07, October 29, 2016 (UTC)
 
 
:Figure I'll add to this. The character on the logo is indeed [[:File:FFLTnS Chronos.png|Chronos]] from Toki no Suisho holding the time wheel present in the game and the prelude playing is "[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xbC5kf2p2JY Prelude of Legends]", which is the game's prelude. The game is related to Toki no Suisho or a new relaunch since the game's story finished last year and is practically dead at this point, with it shifting to a new team iirc and just doing events to stay alive now. We'll find out in a few days, but yeah they did not do well in making the surprise an actual surprise --[[User:Miphares|Miphares]] ([[User talk:Miphares|talk]]) 19:17, October 29, 2016 (UTC)
 
 
==King's Knight Delay==
 
The English twitter page tweeted a day or two ago that it has been delayed until sometime 2017. The website still shows 2016 for some reason. --[[Special:Contributions/66.27.112.157|66.27.112.157]] 22:51, December 28, 2016 (UTC)
 
 
== Cloud amiibo Figure Release ==
 
 
Weren't both of the Cloud amiibo released on July 21st? The two versions are his usual getup and his Advent Children attire. And yes, amiibo is plural and singular. Also, Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U got an update the same day, allowing for them to be scanned in as Figure Players.
 
:If you would like to add information about them to the wiki that would be welcome. There's [[Super Smash Bros.]] article and [[Cloud Strife/Other appearances]]. Anyone can also edit the news.[[User:Keltainentoukokuu|Keltainentoukokuu]] ([[User talk:Keltainentoukokuu|talk]]) 23:54, July 31, 2017 (UTC)

Why is there no news entry yet for the latest XIV expansion, Shadowbringers? This was announced ten hours ago! Does nobody work on this thing anymore? [[Special:Contributions/2600:1017:B10F:2C2:B15E:AA82:47F2:173F|2600:1017:B10F:2C2:B15E:AA82:47F2:173F]] 05:28, November 17, 2018 (UTC)

{{user:Technobliterator/TalkS|17:28, June 29, 2019 (UTC)|I propose we delete the Shinra News page.
 
 
This page does not really provide any value or serve any purpose on our wiki. For news sites, Final Fantasy fans have far better places to go than a video game wiki. [[Special:Insights/popularpages]] doesn't show Shinra News anywhere near the top, so I highly doubt many people are even benefiting from it. The current page is also too editorialized to belong on a wiki. I would say it is better to just cut our losses and delete this page.
 
 
When brought up on Discord, most people favored ending the Shinra News but preferred to archive. I strongly disagree, as this page does not seem to have anything worthwhile archiving (there are plenty of news journalism sites out there to find what people thought of the news when it came out), and it looks extremely unprofessional right now. I would rather delete.}}
 
{{BlueHighwind|time=17:35, June 29, 2019 (UTC)|text=I second the ending of this sub-project since the twitter feed would be more appropriate for our needs of sharing Final Fantasy news and possibly would be better seen. (Could we just embed it?) Sadly it is redundant in 2019. All we need is what the news is and a link to the press piece we got it from.
 
 
We're not actually doing any real journalism here, it's just restating what news outlets say, and odds are they're just restating SE press releases.
 
 
As for editorializing, whatever. Gaming news sites aren't 100% professional either.}}
 
{{user:Technobliterator/TalkS|17:54, June 29, 2019 (UTC)|We embed the Twitter feed on the right rail of the main page right now. If we were to archive this page rather than delete, we could embed it here too, as Twitter has basically replaced Shinra News.
 
 
On the main page, we should definitely lengthen the current Twitter area though to be more visible since it'll replace the Shinra News. I'm not opposed to also just keeping the news box but making it smaller, and not link to a page (except maybe the game page if it's an announced game or etc.).}}
 
 
I am reluctantly in agreement with deleting it, if only because it can be very hard to keep up when so very few actually watch the space. Perhaps keep a small section of what’s going on and a direct link to the source or where to get the game referenced. That, and it's not true journalism without proffering opinions. Some months, it’s a torrent; others, it is but drizzle. [[User:Swordzmanp236|Swordzmanp236]] ([[User talk:Swordzmanp236|talk]]) 18:07, June 29, 2019 (UTC)
 
 
I too am in favor of ending the production of Shinra News, but I am against deleting it for no reason, when it can simply be locked and archived, to no harm to anybody and only to the benefit of posterity, similar to the many forums in the Labyrinth of Time that were saved at my (and other's) behest.

I also agree with ending Shinra News. Like stated before, we can easily reblog articles on Twitter and it will have the same effect.—[[User:Kaimi|Kaimi]] <span style="font-size:0.75em">([[Special:Contributions/Kaimi|999,999 CP]]/[[User talk:Kaimi|5 TP]])</span> ∙ 21:25, June 29, 2019 (UTC)
 
 
{{SCM|time=00:30, June 30, 2019 (UTC)|title=Welp|text=Well, since someone jumped the gun on declaring the end, and there's nobody who seems to be in favour of keeping it open, I think we can consider this pretty much settled. The twitter account will take over the functions of the news page to the best of our ability.}}
 
:that was I, SCM. I figured someone had to send it off the right way. I do want to help keep up on Twitter, but I want no part of the wiki's official feed vis a vis control.
