This Week in the Magazines (and more!)

Going between two languages, it is easy for things to get lost in translation. Not only that, but for Final Fantasy XIV, the sites for each region are also presented in entirely different ways. That means sometimes there can be pictures or text in one that doesn't show up in the either.

For those in Japan, they have to get their information from the magazines released this weekend or one of the several gaming news websites like GAME Watch or 4gamer. Let's check out what was in the magazines that isn't on the NA site as well as what things may have been lost along the way.
