Final Fantasy 7 Remake Shipping Early to Europe and AUS Due to COVID-19

Posted by | News, PlayStation 4 | No Comments

Final Fantasy 7 Remake releases April 10, but its release is heavily impacted by the global pandemic of COVID-19. With the closure of physical stores such as GameStop and the general logistical problems with the pandemic, many physical editions may not ship on time.

To try and get ahead of any launch woes, Square Enix has announced they are shipping Final Fantasy 7 Remake “far earlier than usual to Europe and Australia.” The US copies are being shipped this week and Square Enix is “optimistic that most of you will receive the game for launch day.”

Square Enix is unable to provide exact dates on when each region will receive the game. As part of the announcement, they have a message for fans not to spoil the game before the official launch day of April 10.

If you get the game early, please think of others and don’t spoil it for them. We know there are potential spoilers that have been out there for over two decades as the original Final Fantasy 7 was released in 1997. But Final Fantasy 7 Remake is a new game that still has many surprises for everyone. All our fans and players deserve to experience the game for themselves, and we ask for that support of our dedicated community around the world to ensure that.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake is a big-budget remake of the seminal 90s console RPG, focusing on the early game portion that takes place in the city of Midgar. It’s coming to PlayStation 4 and rated T for teen.

Dragon Quest Designer Confirms Dragon Quest 12 in Development

Posted by | News | No Comments

In celebration of the New Year, Dragon Quest series designer Yuji Horii posted a thank you message to fans on Twitter. He also casually confirmed that “Dragon Quest 12 and more” are in active development.

The tweet was translated via Japanese Nintendo:

Happy New Year. Last year we started with publishing the movie Dragon Quest: Your Story, then releasing the Switch version of Dragon Quest 11, the mobile version of DQ Walk, the announcement of The Adventure of Dai anime along with its game adaptation, the production of [DQ]12 and more; even now after 33 years have passed since I made the 1st game, I feel very glad that I can do new challenges like these. Thank you very much to all users who have cheered on Dragon Quest until now, and also to all of the many staff members who have supported me. I don’t know how long I can go on, but I feel like I want to do my best just a little bit more. I hope this year will be an amazing year to everyone. I’m looking forward to work together in this year.

The Dragon Quest series has been around for three decades, and is recently enjoying a surge in popularity. A big reason is the excellent mainline RPG Dragon Quest 11: Echoes of an Elusive Age, which launched in 2018 on PlayStation 4 and 2019 on Switch with a Definitive Edition. That year also saw the Dragon Quest hero added to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as a DLC fighter, as well as the release of Dragon Quest Builders 2, one of our best family games of 2019.
