FF7 Remake could take until 2021, launch on PS5, and have different name

Final Fantasy VI Remake was announced way too early according to Tetsuya Nomura (FF7 Remake Director, Director of the Kingdom Hearts series, and holder of many design and director credits throughout the Final Fantasy series). Although the team has stopped making their own game engines and now use Unreal Engine 4, there is mounting evidence suggesting that the title will not be done anytime soon and could look completely different from what has been seen thus far by the time it launches. And this wouldn’t be the first time a Square Enix game’s development has been like this, as Final Fantasy already know all too well…

Rumor: Nintendo working on 3DS successor, but what is it?

Nintendo Switch could have a brand new baby sister (or brother) soon, in the form of a brand new style of Nintendo Game Boy for classic titles and brand new indie games. This surprising turn of events is made possible by Nintendo’s announcement that they’ll be creating a 3DS successor.

Many had assumed that Nintendo Switch would be the only Nintendo hardware going forward, following its huge success after a big gamble was taken on developing it. It appears that Nintendo is confident enough to launch something else as well, and we might already have an idea what it would be like conceptually.

Mass Exodus: Bioware veterans quitting among rumored Anthem problems

Yet another one of Bioware’s founding fathers has left the game development studio behind titles like EA’s Mass Effect and the upcoming Anthem. The studio once held a good reputation in the industry for its story-tellers and RPG design experts, but their image slowly slid until most gamers began to view their titles as mediocre at best. Scores came in lower each time a new game was released with Dragon Age II, Mass Effect 3, and Mass Effect Andromeda standing out as some of their least enjoyed and lowest rated products.

This problematic scenario has caused many fans to believe that Anthem is something EA Games forced Bioware to create, seeing it as a ‘games-as-a-service’ product built for greedy cash-in functionality similar to other hollow titles EA has produced recently. This is based on evidence, not conspiracy, since Visceral Games was forced to create Battlefield: Hardline and their Dead Space IP was killed. Most fans also fear that if Anthem doesn’t turn out to be an extremely profitable project, EA Games will shut down the studio as they have with so many others before; most recently Visceral Games following the failure for Dead Space 3 to reach unrealistic goals set by EA.

Now, amid rumors that Anthem is seeing problems in development, the people who helped make Bioware what it is today are leaving. It’s understandable that those who remain a part of this company fear for their jobs and face unreasonable stress every day. After all, EA responded to Mass Effect Andromeda’s reception by immediately liquidating Bioware Montreal – an offshoot of the studio that was meant to expand its production capabilities and recruit new talent from the massive Montreal game development community.

Pre-Gamescom 2018: Microsoft will announce new Xbox One bundles and accessories

It would seem the gaming world got a little too excited this morning when Microsoft vaguely hinted “all-new hardware” would be shown off at Gamescom 2018 only to later clarify that while this won’t be the reveal of Xbox Project Scarlet, the next-generation console expected to release in 2020 or 2021, instead they plan to announce a new Xbox One system bundle and new accessories (possibly including a rumored Elite Controller iteration that was alleged leaked recently).

This information was originally debuted in an article titled Xbox is coming to gamescom by Xbox media spokesperson Major Nelson, who himself started off as a self-made games journalist detailing news revolving around the original Xbox before eventually being hired on by Microsoft as a permanent figurehead to the brand. For those wondering, technically the event is meant to be spelled in all lowercase letters as per stylized renditions and logos, Major Nelson didn’t make an error it’s just the weird way the biggest gaming event in Germany likes to have their name typed out.

As for the leaked controller, nothing is certain yet but there are some details floating around the internet in the form of rumors as to what will be seen this August 21 – 25 when Gamescom commences.

Rumor: テイルズ オブ ヴェスペリア Tales of Vesperia Remastered Leaked for PS4

A few days ago RPG gamers went crazy at the possibility of a new Remaster for the beloved 2008 / 2009 title from Namco Tales Studio, Tales of Vesperia. Well known as practically the only Tales game to ever grace the Xbox platforms when it dropped on Xbox 360, although the later PlayStation 3 version in 2009 new bosses, enemies, dungeons, party members, and full voice acting. Some of the features on the Xbox 360 version of the game had to be cut due to the fact that Microsoft decided to use DVD discs for their games back then, whereas Sony used Blu-ray discs on PS3. Fans now wonder if this rumored remaster of the game will arrive on both consoles.

As we come closer to the real thing, many gamers enjoy to find out what might be at the event before it happens.

In any event, we tried to discuss how likely each of these rumors are.

This year some leaks have led to instant confirmations by game companies who probably don’t want their fans to suffer waiting.
