After what felt like years of waiting, Square Enix finally released new footage of their upcoming Final Fantasy VII Remake, showing off some of the gameplay even if it was early development footage. Unfortunately, we still don’t have any clue as to when the game will be released, but we now have more information about the game.
Given the classic status of Final Fantasy VII, there is no doubt that there are many gamers who are eagerly anticipating its release. When exactly that will be remains to be seen (some claim 2023), but in the meantime, it seems that Square Enix has decided to grace us all with some gameplay footage from the upcoming game.
While card games, even digital ones, have been around for a while now, it seems that in recent times they are starting to catch on in terms of popularity again. We have to wonder if this might have anything to do with the success that Blizzard is seeing with Hearthstone, but since then we’ve seen quite a few card games launch.
Being able to bond with your partner over a shared interest is great, such as video games where in the past we have seen many gamers get together and get married over a video game. We’ve also seen some video game themed weddings, and now it seems that over in Japan, Square Enix is actually offering up official Final Fantasy XIV themed weddings.
With the Final Fantasy VII Remake having been announced a few years ago, we haven’t really heard much about the game since, which unsurprisingly has led to some wondering when the game will be released, and whether or not development is actually going on, or could Square Enix have shelved it?
The backward compatibility program for the Xbox One enables developers to bring their old titles to the current-gen console. Final Fantasy fans will be interested in knowing that the Final Fantasy 13 trilogy has picked up backward compatibility support for the Xbox One. Microsoft and Square Enix have confirmed that the three games will be making their way to the Xbox One.
As Final Fantasy 15 gamers might have heard, Square Enix was planning on releasing several character-specific DLCs that would focus on each of the characters in the game. Unfortunately in a somewhat sudden announcement, the company has announced that they have cancelled three out of four of the upcoming DLCs that were meant to be launched.
It has been three years since Square Enix announced and confirmed that they would be remaking Final Fantasy VII, an announcement which the company admits might have come too early. The good news is that while we know for a fact that a remake is in the works, it seems that Square Enix could be considering other Final Fantasy VII titles as well.
The other day Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition HD was announced for the Nintendo Switch. It turns out that it wasn’t the only Final Fantasy game announced for the console because during Nintendo’s Direct event, it has been confirmed that the classic and legendary Final Fantasy VII will also be arriving on the console.
There’s more to look forward to for Final Fantasy fans. It was confirmed last week that Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition HD will soon be released for the Nintendo Switch. It has now been revealed that this isn’t the only title coming to Nintendo’s console in the future. Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles is being ported over to the Switch as well as the PlayStation 4.
Square Enix has in the past expressed their liking of the Nintendo Switch. The interest also led to some wondering if the company could be bringing some of their Final Fantasy titles onto the Switch, like they have in the past with the DS consoles. The company had stated last year that they were still trying to figure it out.
The Final Fantasy VII remake was announced back in 2015 and now fast forward 3 years later, we still don’t have anything to look forward to. The game’s producer Tetsuya Nomura has reassured fans that the game is in development but when exactly we can expect its release is anyone’s guess.
While Kingdom Hearts 3 was no doubt the focus on Square Enix’s E3 2018 presentation, a notable absence at Square Enix’s presentation was the Final Fantasy VII remake. The game was announced a couple of years ago but fast forward to today, Square Enix has revealed little to nothing about the game and their progress.
For the past several years, we’ve seen Square Enix bring various versions of their Final Fantasy games onto mobile. Now a few years ago, the company announced that they would be bringing Final Fantasy XI onto mobile, and that was a few years ago when the game was originally intended for a release in 2016.
