A friend of mine came over last night and as always, she and I got into a conversation about the latest games; what she is currently playing, etc. She is a Final Fantasy fan like myself so I showed her an article I wrote not too long ago about the latest news on the fan-made Final Fantasy webseries on Youtube based on one of the most popular chapters of the endless game, Final Fantasy VII. We watched the trailer for this webseries in the article which is friggin' awesome by the way, but after that she decided to show me this crazy series also on YouTube called "Dead Fantasy".
Dead Fantasy, she told me, was created long ago, however new installations are expected sometime in the future. What it is, is a fan-made, all-out battle between the ladies of Dead or Alive and several other female characters from Final Fantasy VII, VIII, and even Kingdom Hearts. As a woman, I LOVE when I get to see female characters take the lead in games and this crazy creation was a dream come true! It is so awesome, in my opinion, that whoever developed this series should really consider developing it as a real game. Imagine being Tifa and kicking ass alongside Rikku, Yuna, and more classic FF characters? If you prefer Dead or Alive than imagine yourself as Ayane handing out beat-downs left and right!
Once you think every character you could think of has been introduced throughout the 6 part installment thus far, along comes... *drum roll*... Cloud! I must have squealed like a ten year-old girl when I saw him appear in the video! There are also other famous male characters from both games that slowly show face but the series is not over so we can expect more faces to be featured in chapter 7, whenever it is uploaded. I can't wait to see it and if it doesn't eventually become a game when it is done than it should at least be made into a DVD because it rocked! To think, this fan not only put a great concept together but the graphics and fluidity went from good to better with each chapter as well.
