Final Fantasy 7 Remake Demo Available Now on PlayStation 4

Posted by | News, PlayStation 4 | No Comments

If you’re curious about all the fuss with the Final Fantasy 7 Remake, Square Enix has released a free demo today on the PlayStation Store. Downloading the demo before May 11 will also provide an exclusive PlayStation 4 theme when the full game launches on April 10.

The limited demo includes the opening chapter of the story, centered around the bombing mission of the Mako Reactor.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake stars Cloud Strife, a former strike force member of the powerful Shinra corporation, which controls the planet’s life force. In the opening chapter, Cloud has left Shinra to join forces with a rebellious mercenary group called Avalanche to shut down the reactor in the city of Midgar.

The remake covers only a fraction of the full 1997 RPG, taking place entirely within the opening area of Midgar, but expanding on many story and gameplay elements. The combat system uses a hybrid of real-time action with strategic commands.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake will be released on April 10 with standard, deluxe, and a 1st Class Edition on PlayStation 4. It’s rated T for Teen with Language, Suggestive Themes, Use of Alcohol and Tobacco, and Violence.

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.
