This Week in CRNews: Fighting Fantasy Edition

Hot news, big features, and stories you may have missed!

I hope you all enjoyed your time with Emily in last week's recap! She rocked in the Chinese New Year, and even inspired some change with the newly named "TOP VIDEOS" section. Hmm… maybe she's trying to take this gig from me on a permanent basis…


Anyway, two major game releases hit this week, both from wildly different genres. No doubt many of you are enjoying Final Fantasy XIII-2, SoulCalibur V, or maybe both at once as you read this intro (you wild multi-taskin' maniacs!). If you'll pardon the interruption, however, it's time for the weekly recap of everything that went down this week in Crunchyroll News!


Below you'll find a bevy of hot stories, features and video posted throughout the week. But that's not all. We've also compiled a few stories we missed, so be sure to check those out, as well.
