Gundam Vs Hello Kitty – The ultimate showdown?!

You heard right! Gundam and Hello Kitty are going head to head!

Why? Because they are both celebrating birthdays! Hello Kitty is celebrating 45 years and Gundam is celebrating 40! Which classic franchise can claim the crown in this wacky cross promotion popularity contest?

First of all, fans need to register their allegiance with Hello Kitty or Gundam on the official website. (Be warned that there is no take-backsies and once you’ve chosen you’re enlisted for life!). Then after that, you need to shop at all the promotional stores (in Japan) and register the points on the website. Points can also be exchanged for prizes such as chopsticks and t-shirts.

Final Fantasy 14 Shadowbringers trailer

The full trailer for the FFXIV expansion Shadowbringers was revealed a few days ago at the Final Fantasy XIV Tokyo Fanfest.

There will be 2 new playable classes Gunbreaker and Dancer, both DPS. In a recent patch, another DPS, Blue Mage was also released, however this job is currently level locked to 50, which leaves fans wondering if this will go to level 80 when the expansion releases.

There are also two new playable races but with genderlocking. Viera are locked to female only and Hrothgar are locked to male only. This limitation has been met with unhappiness from fans who wanted bunny boys and lion ladies! In the original 1.0 release of the game, there was some gender locks on Miqo’te and Roegadyn but when the game was fully revamped for 2.0 these restrictions were lifted. We can only hope that the dev team will release more options for the Viera and Hrothgar in future.

There will be a new system called Trust that allows an A.I character to assist you in Shadowbringers dungeons. Not a whole lost is revealed about this yet but it seems like it might help to alleviate dungeon queue times.

Of course there will be new zones, dungeons and armor to collect along our journey through the next big chapter of the story that will have us traveling to another world to save it from being bleached by light!
