    Remember when the Xbox Series X and S launched with a Yakuza game, but the PS5 didn't? That was weird, right? For such a long time the Yakuza franchise had been closely tied to PlayStation. But, at least for a few months, the then-latest game in the series skipped Sony's next-gen machine for Xbox's fancy console. Why?…

    Evil Dead is a multiplayer horror game with plenty of scream-inducing thrills for your whole group of friends and then some. Saber Interactive only released the asymmetric game last year, but it looks like the spooky reign of Evil Dead: The Game may already be coming to an abrupt end. The developer has just announced that it will no longer update Evil Dead with new content, thanking the game's fans for their support. If you're worried about playing online, servers should stay up for now.

    Hide your Chocobos, as Colonel Sanders has been spotted in Eorzea in a trailer for the upcoming KFC and FFXIV collaboration. The trailer, which you can watch on the official KFC Twitter account, shows Colonel Sanders standing near La Noscea and staring out at it contemplatively. It looks like Colonel Sanders is a Black Mage too.

    You can watch the KFC and FFXIV collaboration trailer featuring Colonel Sanders here:

    "Colonel Sanders is steadily preparing for a new adventure in another world" is the caption for the video. He looks ready as well, as he's starting to cast Triplecast. There's not much information on what this collaboration will be. Previous fried chicken related collaborations with Final Fantasy XIV involved real-life food items. However, this KFC trailer seems to imply that something more game-related will come soon.

    As of the time of writing, over 30,000 people have Retweeted the trailer and it has accumulated over 35,600 likes. Many people in the replies worry about the future of Eorzea's Chocobos. Perhaps soon, KFC will no longer stand for Kentucky Fried Chicken and instead, will stand for Kentucky Fried Chocobos.

    Final Fantasy XIV is readily available on the PS4, PS5, and Windows PC. More details, such as the release date, for the KFC and Final Fantasy XIV collaboration will come out soon.
