Mark your calendars, folks! Square Enix has finally confirmed that the Final Fantasy VII Remake will launch on March 3, 2020. The company announced the release date during a Final Fantasy concert ahead of the official opening of E3 2019.
The game’s director Tetsuya Nomura promised in May when they dropped the first gameplay trailer that there will be more details and true enough, they delivered. They also released a collection of official Final Fantasy soundtracks to Spotify so you can listen to that while you wait.
Final Fantasy VII was first released for the original PlayStation. It’s the first game in the series to move away from 2D animation and make use of polygonal character design, taking advantage of the console’s capabilities.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild sequel is on its way
Following up the Switch’s best game
Leave it to Nintendo to make the announcements that are worthy of closing the pre-E3 keynotes.
During Nintendo’s keynote, the company announced that a sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is in the works. A trailer was provided but didn’t show anything in terms of gameplay.
Instead, we see main characters Link and Zelda exploring a cave, seemingly continuing where they left off from the first game, and finding a ghastly corpse that awakens.
You can watch it here:
Breath of the Wild is considered by many to be the best game on the Switch (along with Super Mario Odyssey), as well as the highest-rated entry in the long-running series, so any mention of a sequel is fantastic news.
Sadly, Nintendo didn’t provide a release date or any other details. All we know for sure is that this will be another Switch-exclusive.
Final Fantasy VIII is getting the remaster it deserves
It’s not a remake though
At long last, Final Fantasy VIII is releasing on newer consoles. It had been notably absent when Square Enix launched fellow FF-series games lately. Somehow, they got their shit together for this.
Unfortunately, it isn’t a remake like what we’re getting out of Final Fantasy VII for the PS4. Rather, this is only a remaster of the classic PlayStation title with the same gameplay mechanics and slightly improved graphics.
This is the official trailer:
“Coming 2019” is all we have for a release schedule. The good news is we’ll see it on the PS4, Switch, Xbox One, and Steam — no mobile version, however. Previously, a vanilla version of FFVIII arrived on PC in late 2013.
For context, the original game came out in 1999. It’s time for younger millennials to get a taste of emo protagonists from the 90s.
Ubisoft announces third Watch Dog installment, coming in 2020
Set in post-Brexit London
Ubisoft has announced Watch Dogs Legion during its E3 2019 keynote in Los Angeles. It’s the third installment in the Watch Dogs series and has a release date of March 6, 2020. As earlier leaks suggested, the new Watch Dog game is set in a hyper-surveilled, post-Brexit London.
What’s new in Watch Dogs Legion‘s gameplay is the use of multiple characters with different skill sets. Instead of just a single protagonist throughout the game, gamers can finally take control of other characters of interest.
Characters include an MI5 agent, a tough bare-knuckle fighter, a brilliant hacker, an illegal street racer, a rising football star, and a geriatric grandma.
Each character has “a persistent schedule and backstory,” according to Ubisoft. Gamers can recruit them to the hacker group DedSec by convincing them to fight “criminals, a corrupt private military corporation, and an oppressive surveillance state amidst a collapsed government.”
Here’s the world premiere trailer:
As for the gameplay details, it’s explained in the video below:
The original Watch Dog was first released in 2014 as an open-world action-hacking title. It was an interesting game despite the so-so reception of critics. It still got its sequel in 2016 which was more well-received than the first one.
