In February 1998, a fifteen-year old boy discovered the world of RPGs through the greatest of them all, Final Fantasy VII.

Seven years later, his dreams of his teenage hero have finally come true.

The boy has become a man.

Recent news - November 1 2004

The first screenshot of Sephiroth has now been shown, although the quality isn' t that great... but many of you were eager to see him again, weren' t you? Check it out at the Screenshots Page!

Recent news - October 25 2004

How about I say "I forgive you"?

The Final Fantasy VII Advent Children Special Trailer has been shown in Montreal too, and while it was almost identical to the one we attended to in Venice, there were a couple of lines worth a mention, lines that weren' t included in the Venice screening or that perhaps we didn' t seem to notice or remember (although being mainly spoken by Aeris it would be rather absurd that our memory let us down, so few were the words she spoke and so high was our attention when she appeared on screen) ., quoting from an audio recording of the Montreal screen, has posted a detailed translation, you can find it at the link below:

Translation of the Montreal Special Trailer (almost identical to the Venice one)

This script may have two purposes: first, it allows those who were in Venice to better clear their own memory and let them remember things that might have been forgotten, and second, these new lines by Aeris are surely a nice add-on and will most certainly lead to other speculation and debates. I' ll post this translation in my Info Page trying to underline the most important as well as the newest lines it includes.

Let' s go, Cloud.

Recent news - October 16 2004

Recent news - September 15 2004

The new Final Fantasy VII game starring Vincent we had heard about has now a name: Final Fantasy VII: Dirge of Cerberus, and a scan is now available in the Scan Page!

It seems to me very similar to Devil May Cry, but who knows how Square-Enix will be capable of amaze us (or spill us money) ? By the way, according to some rough translations of the scan, it seems that the story will take place 1 year AFTER Advent Children, when Vincent will have to face some enemies called the Dirge of Cerberus, and a familiar face (Reeve, whom we were missing in AC) should make his appearance. You may also notice in the fore-mentioned scan some screenshots from the AC Venice trailer concerning Bahamut flying in the sky...

Recent news - September 13 2004

Eight official screenshots of Yuffie, Zack, Kadaj, the Healing Lodge and the square where the Meteor monument has been built have surfaced, and while we wait for Adry-senpai' s Venice report you may check them out in the Screenshots Page!

Previous News - August 20 2004

Yuffie' s face is finally shown, along with the first screenshot of ZACK in the latest japanese scan, although it is a bit cut in the lower size and the definition isn' t that great... but let' s revel in the fact that we now know that Zack will be there someway!

For the joy of all of us, in the latest issue of the japanese magazine V-Jump, an image featuring a GIRL THAT CLEARLY RESEMBLES AERIS has surfaced, along with a shot of Cloud together with Rude & Reno and the picture of a new character, a child that apparently lives with Tifa, whose name should be Denzel.

NOTE: in the picture of the "mysterious girl wearing Aeris' uniform" , Cloud is shown back-to-back to this girl, and he wears his new outfit... meaning, THIS IS NOT A FLASHBACK, ISN' T IT?
Boy, things are starting to get serious now......... CHECK MY SCAN PAGE AT ONCE!!!

Previous news - June 12 2004

From a recent interview in another Japanese magazine, Nomura stated a couple of interesting things:

  1. it' ll be very likely to see almost all the characters we well know, but certainly they won' t gather in a party like they did back in FFVII;

  2. as many of us had previously guessed, the Three Silver-haired men are connected with Sephiroth as well as with the Geostigma and the Jenova' s Reunion, and Nomura also added that the two years of calm were originated by a certain "union" related to these three characters;

  3. the word "Children" in Advent Children really means the children like Marlene and the others, and it seems that while Cloud and the others had to save the world back then, now they have to do the same with the children - Nomura said that the three questions at the end of the E3 trailer are something we must really pay attention to!

Regarding these matters, check out my newest theory at the Info Page!

Previous news - May 24 2004

New scans from Famitsu Magazine and from the E3 report are available in the Scans & Merchandise section... Take a look at them!

These scans feature a female character that has been confirmed being TIFA, the names of the Three Silver-Haired Men, that in katakana (the Japanese syllab alphapet used to write the rough pronounciation for foreign words) sound like "Kadaaju" (the smaller one) , "Yazuu" (the tall one with long hair) and "Rozu" [Ross?] (the tall one with short hair) , and the long-awaited return of RUDE and RENO, as well as some new images of our well-known Vincent and of a little girl who could be Marlene!

Check them out at my Scans page!!!

Previous News - April 30 2004

There isn' t much about Advent Children that has leaked out in the recent weeks. The major exploit is scheduled for May, after the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) will have taken place, for Square claimed that they will reveal more elements and information about FFVII Advent Children during the fore-mentioned expo. So, let' s wait a bit more and hope to get some fresher and deeper insight in the upcoming month!

Previous news - March 12 2004

During a recent interview for the Official US Playstation Magazine, Tetsuya Nomura, aside the same old trite stuff, claimed that most of the characters the fans would like to see will actually feature in Advent Children, and like Uematsu previously affirmed, Nomura said that a game sequel to FFVII could be something to work on to in the future. By the way, he also underlined a rather unpleasant thing, i.e. Advent Children will perhaps be playable on the Playstation 2 only and thus not on the normal stand-alone dvd players.
You can find a partial scan of this interview in the Scans & Merchandise section (the bottom scanned pages) .

Previous updates - March 12 2004

At last! The graphic upgrade of Final Fantasy Dimension is finally taking place, and you can witness the brand new graphic design with your own eyes! As of today, the layout change has affected the Advent Children sections only, but it will soon rejuvenate the entire Final Fantasy Dimension! Enjoy my hard work!

Previous News - January 27 2004

In a recent interview, Tetsuya Nomura, our well-known character designer, claimed that a female character will be introduced, supposingly new to the story. Who this character may be and what role she' ll be playing in FFVII: Advent Children is still unkwown, though.

Previous News - January 20 2004

The great Nobuo Uematsu, the extraordinary composer of the Final Fantasy saga, in a recent interview talked about FFVII: Advent Children, saying that the only music tracks from FFVII to be re-used will be the Main Theme, Aeris' Theme and One-Winged Angel (Katayoku no Tenshi) . But more importantly, while on one side claiming that Advent Children will actually be an OAV and thus not a playable game, on the other he confirmed his current participation in a "secret" project, that is RUMORED to be Final Fantasy VII-2. In fact, nobody has ever mentioned that Advent Children is FFVII-2, leading to believe that Advent Children itself, with its short length of approx. 70-80 minutes, will turn out to be just a prequel to Final Fantasy VII-2. Let' s keep our fingers crossed as always!

Previous News - December 27 2003

Minor revelations about the plot have been dispatched: it seems that strange abnormalities are occurring at the Northern Cave, and at the same time, the infamous " Planet Scar Syndrome " starts to take effect on the Planet, at a still unknown extent. About the commercial stuff, I' ve added a few wallpapers, but more importantly a brand new japanese magazine scan where Barret, Vincent and some other unrevealed characters are battling in a dark forest, and where we can see a sort of flashback of Aeris' burial in the lake of the Forgotten City. Check them out!
An interesting rumor is the following: it seems that Senior Vice President of Square-Enix, Shinji Hashimoto, stressed that it is still on discussion whether FFVII: Advent Children will be released in the DVD video format or not, making room for speculations about a hypothetic Playstation 2 sequel that could be actually played...

Previous News - November 12 2003

Some release dates for the upcoming movie in DVD have been dispatched, and you can find them below. Unfortunately, the European release has not been confirmed yet, so there' s no guarantee the date shown - last quarter of 2004 - will be correct at all. Check out this page periodically for more updates, I' ll publish fresher news as soon as they come out!

Previous News - November 3 2003

For those of us who really look forward to an American release of the sequel to FFVII, now something seems to be moving: Square Enix has requested United States title protection for Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children. This is a fundamental step in order for the movie to be released in the U.S.A.. Let' s keep our fingers crossed and wait for the official announcements!

Previous News - October 9 2003

It seems that the movie, which will be considered as an OAV, will include 20 characters, so it' ll be likely to see many familiar faces from Final Fantasy VII coming back with a vengeance, and it is my conviction that we' ll see Aeris, perhaps in spirit form, appear somewhere... does the Church you see in the screenshots and in the trailer tell you anything?
