  • Back in February, Square Enix confirmed that they had “no plans” to do Final Fantasy X-3, and in the new issue of Famitsu this week, the publication is reporting that Final Fantasy X-3 still isn’t in development, according to Yoshinori Kitase. They then add that development is going well on Final Fantasy XV. [Via 1, 2, Source]
  • LittleBigPlanet 2 patch 1.30, LittleBigPlanet PS Vita patch 1.18, and LittleBigPlanet Karting patch 1.17 all set the games for upcoming content scheduled to release within the next month. Media Molecule would only tease: “There’s definitely some fun stuff on the way, so be sure to keep an eye out for more news on those closer to their release. All I can say now is… Super!” [Source]

  • Due to the drawn out of process of submitting games to SCEE, Dragon Fantasy Book I and Book II still don’t have release dates in Europe. The devs did say: “So as of today I can’t promise a specific release date as much as I’d like to. What I can promise is better transparency. You’ll know when we submit this next (and hopefully final) build to SCEE. You’ll know when we get word back on whether or not it will be accepted. And when it’s accepted, you’ll know what the launch date is.” [Source]
  • We don’t know when it’s happening, but there will be a demo for EA Sports UFC. [Twitter]
