Hey guys! I had a really hard time keeping up with how much has been going on, but I thought I’d do a quick news wrap up for all the stuff Square Enix has revealed this week, because, hey, this is some big stuff! Take a look!
First things first, it’s time to say goodbye to two Kingdom Hearts games; Kingdom hearts Union X and Dark Road. The two mobile games will be ending in April and May respectively. I can’t say why they are no longer going to keep up with the games, especially since Dark Road isn’t even a year old yet. However, X will be ending it’s story, so there is that. Although I didn’t play either of these games all that much, I’m sad to see it go.
In other news, as I’m sure a lot of you are aware of by now, Square Enix had some big announcements regarding the Final Fantasy 7 Remake the other day! First off, we have the new Playstation 5 version of the Remake with brand new graphics and picture mode! Check it out!
But wait…who was that at the end??? That’s right! It’s Yuffie!
Yuffie will be getting her own game titled Final Fantasy 7 Remake: Intergrade, and, if I heard correctly, it will be the length of two chapters. They kept to her original design, and I”m really loving that! Check out the trailer!
To be honest, I’m not sure at all how I feel about this. I guess I feel like it’s not really needed, but I’m probably just bitter that it’s a PS5 exclusive and, well, I don’t have a PS5! Still, I’m warming up to the idea of intergrades..
Also, there at the end of the trailer you can see Weiss, who was the villain in Dirge of Cerberus. In fact, the secret ending of that game marked the return of Genesis, who was the villain in Crisis Core…that makes me wonder what kind of stuff they’ve got planned, and the suspense is killing me!!!
BUT THAT’S NOT ALL
Square Enix also revealed not one, but TWO new additions to the world of Final Fantasy 7! Since I will be saving the best for last, let’s take a look at the new trailer for Final Fantasy 7: The First Soldier, which will be taking place thirty years before the original game!
If I didn’t know what to think about the Yuffie intergrade, I really didn’t know about this! I seriously have doubts about this game…it just hasn’t grabbed my attention at all, but I’ll see what I think about it after a few days. I’m not exactly sure what it’ll be about exactly, but I am a bit curious.
And now for the game I’m most excited about! They also announced Final Fantasy 7: Ever Crisis, which will be releasing sometime in 2022. Take a look!
Yes, that is exactly what you think it is. An entire remake of not just Final Fantasy 7, but also Before Crisis, Crisis Core, Advent Children, AND Dirge of Cerberus. I kind of lost my mind a little but there, especially there at the end when we have Zack Fair in the flesh! It will be a stab to the heart replaying Crisis Core, but oh my goodness, it’ll be worth it! The design is so, so amazing! I’m loving that it gives off the feel of the original, but is still a fresh new look!
When I said quick, I really meant it, didn’t I? So much to do, so little time! Now I want to hear your thoughts! Tell me what you think about all these reveals in the comments below! As always, God bless y’all and have a wonderful week!
