The staff here at Kingdom Hearts Insider are proud to present a new sister site devoted to the Final Fantasy franchise: FinalFantasy.net! This site is similar to Kingdom Hearts Insider in which we'll be updating you with breaking news and media involving the series. We're also going to focus on the community we'll be building in the couple months by shining a spotlight on user-created content such as fanart, videos, and opinion. We're just starting up, but we'd love to have you visit the site!
Our passion for Final Fantasy doesn’t just lie in the games themselves, but in the expanded fandom and everything it encompasses. This is the series that introduced and popularized the Japanese flavor of a genre of weapons equipping and stat crunching to an international audience. This is the series that, while not the first, was certainly the most significant title to captivate fans with the introduction of CGI graphics, and the transformation from sprites to blocky 3D graphics. And certainly, this is the series that helped build otaku culture. All across the world, there isn’t an anime or gaming convention you can go to without seeing someone dressed up as your favorite Final Fantasy hero or heroine!
And that is where the foundation of this website lies—we’re here to create a one shop stop for all your Final Fantasy news, media, discussion, and fandom. This is no easy undertaking, but to get ourselves situated and into the groove of things we’ve launched this beta version of our site to kick things off. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions, suggestions, or believe you’d like to get involved yourself!
What does this mean for KHInsider?
KHInsider.com and KHInsider.com's site staff will remain as is. Kingdom Hearts Insider's website will always be about Kingdom Hearts. However since the two Square-Enix franchises are so close together, we feel that the community won't be diluted by having the two websites share a forum (which is our current plan). The Final Fantasy section is our current base for site-related and community discussion. This is also one of our reasons by having a Final Fantasy skin, as some of you may have been wondering.
I want to create fan-made FF content to be featured on the site. How do I go about doing that?
On FinalFantasy.net, you'll find a Staff tab that will list e-mail contact addresses for our Site and Content managers. E-mail your content there for it to be considered for site posting. Not everything will make it on to the site, but quality submissions will definitely be at the forefront.
