Welcome to Square Insider's first Saucer Sunday, a roundup of articles from across the web that cover interesting posts from the would of nerd gaming and beyond. This week's premier Saucer Sunday keeps it close to home with a recap of Final Fantasy XV news, Pokemon's 20th Anniversary, and a sneak peek at Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

  • This week was packed with news from Square Enix's most anticipated title of all time, Final Fantasy XV. Square Insider's busiest articles are always related to the mammoth RPG, and it's no surprise that everyone wants to know about the January 30th ATB which detailed new enemies, new combat details, and the upcoming March 30th event. There was so much information that the ATB is worth every minute of its hour run time:
  • Harry Potter lovers received an unexpected treat this week in the form of a three minute sneak peek into the upcoming Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, a film loosely based on a novel of the same name. The film will be set in the magical world of 1920s New York, occurring roughly 70 years beforethe Harry Potter series of books. J.K. Rowling, author of the venerable series, penned the screenplay herself and returns to the Wizarding World with much of the same production staff that made the later Harry Potter films so remarkable.
  • RPG fans across the industry had other reasons to celebrate this week as well. Another franchise is experiencing a significant milestone. Pokemon turns 20 this year and Nintendo is going crazy with different promotional material. Free downloads, digital media, and a Superbowl Commercial are among the highlights. Here's the commercial if you missed it:
  • And, as an added bonus, the upcoming HD remaster of the Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess received a story trailer that shows off the updated graphics and serves as a refresher to the lore of this installment in the series. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD releases for Wii U on March 4, 2016.

Thanks for reading through this weekend's Saucer Sunday. Hopefully it'll grow to be a welcome, if off-beat, addition to the Square Insider lineup. Share your opinion in the comments if you think there's a topic worth watching over the course of the next week!
