E3 2018: PlayStation Press Conference – Full WrapUp & Videos

An extended look at Death Stranding as well as Sony’s other first party titles was given, but not the deep dives we were promised. Instead, Sony has delivered incredible surprises after fooling everyone into a false sense of security. We thought they wouldn’t announce anything and just focus on their four main games. During the start of the show, they suffered technical difficulties which almost ruined the entire event.

However, the surprises started to make up for it and PS4 fans were given plenty of reasons to be excited for this year’s PlayStation E3 Press Conference. All in all, the show did end abruptly and had a distinct lack of flow compared to past shows. Sony needs to try harder

E3 2018: Xbox Press Conference – Full WrapUp & Videos

Xbox destroyed expectations, shocking us all. With everything to prove and nothing to lose, a truly spectacular show has redeemed the green giant for gamers of every kind. They have put on perhaps the best E3 showing of all time.

E3 2018: Kingdom Hearts III release date revealed by Square Enix

Today Square Enix tempered expectations before their E3 Press Conference tomorrow at 10AM Pacific Time by revealing the release date of Kingdom Hearts III. One of the longest waits in gaming history is soon coming to an end thanks to the Unreal Engine 4 development path Square Enix has chosen for their current lineup of games. Originally announced at E3 2013, but in pre-development since as early as 2006, KH3 has undergone a number of iterations and so much money, hard work, and love has been poured into the project that it’s surreal to think fans will soon get their hands on it.

Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix – E3 2014 Trailer [HD]

Kingdom Hearts HD II.5 Remix

 

Last Year Square Enix released Kingdom Hearts I.5 HD Remix for the Playstation 3  collecting Kingdom Hearts Final Mix HD, Kingdom Hearts RE: Chain Of Memories HD, as well as the HD remastered cutscenes from Kingdom Hearts 358/2.  This was first time fans of the series in North America and Europe were able to play the Final Mix of Kingdom Hearts as the PS2 original was announced for North America but never  was released outside of Japan. The fully HD remaster  of Kingdom Hearts 358/2 was not included  in this collection  because of Square Enix’s  licensing agreement with Nintendo for the original game on the DS but they allowed for the cutscenes to be remaster so gamers don’t miss out on any of the story. Several months later Square Enix surprised fans with the announcement  of  Kingdom Hearts III for  Playstation 4 and Xbox One during the Sony Playstation E3 2013 Press Conference.  The company then  announced that Kingdom Hearts II.5 HD Remix would be released this year for the Playstation 3 roughly one month of after the original games’ release.  Kingdom Hearts II.5 HD Remix contains both  Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix and Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep Final Mix as well as the HD remastered cutscenes  for Kingdom Hearts RE:Coded. Like the original title this is the first time that North American  and European Fans were able play the Final Mix versions of Kingdom Hearts II as well as Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep in their home territories. Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix like the original game on the PS2 was never released outside of Japan. KH – Birth By Sleep  on the other hand was a critically acclaimed PSP title and was never released digitally on the Playstation Network for the PS Vita as at the time of Sony’s Handheld Square Enix had no official plans to re-release the game on any platform even with purposed PSP transfer system that never saw the light of day, Kingdom Hearts fans had to either purchase Sony’s handheld or not play the game. The reason for this was due to heavy hacking of the Playstation Portals hardware and its possible impact on the sales of this prequel to the original Kingdom Hearts on the PS2. This strategy  paid off  big time for Square Enix as Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep sold well over a million copies worldwide and  its success remains  as a big statement of fan loyalty within the game industry as a whole.   KH RE: Coded was originally a mobile phone game that was then translated into a Nintendo DS game and Square Enix has a similar agreement with Nintendo on this game as the do with the Kingdom Hearts 358/2 but it is nice to see that this entry in the series is included  in some form or fashion as it is an integral piece to the Kingdom Hearts storyline. Kingdom Hearts II HD Remix will be playable at the Sony’s E3 2014 developer booth and will be released on the Playstation 3 on in Japan on October 2nd 2014 and then in the US and European territories on December 2nd 2014. Check out the trailer below and be sure to check back to RealGamerNewz for more information on Kingdom Hearts HD  2.5 Remix as well as Kingdom Hearts III as it develops.

Kingdom Hearts III / Final Fantasy XV Director Tetsuya Nomura Speaks On How His Career Came Together

Barret Wallace - Final Fantasy VII

Developer prestige Tetsuya Nomura spoke recently about the early days of his career and what they entailed. With memories reminisced to the Japan Magazine Famitsu Nomura speaks about what it was like working with the minds that created the Final Fantasy series. He also speaks who he believed inherited the franchise from whom in regards to the origins of some of the Final Fantasy titles.

Nomura spoke about being shown the basics by Hiroyuki Ito and being taught from the start to use new ideas when pitching gameplay features to the Final Fantasy series. Nomura’s work began as a debugger for Final Fantasy V which quickly led up to designs that ended up as the well-known characters Shadow and Setzer from Final Fantasy VI. After this Nomura has gone forward to do much work on the FF series, as mentioned above, and has gained prominence as a designer in many ways for this work.

“There were a lot of things, but for example, in the planning book for what kind of jobs I had in mind for Final Fantasy V, there were things like a ninja with a dog, a gambler who fought with dice and cards, and other illustrations. Everyone else used computers to type things out for their main plan books, but in order to have more impact, I wrote all the notes by hand and included plenty of drawings.

“I believe that having studied advertisement also worked out in a positive way. After a while, whenever it was time to turn in our plan books, Sakaguchi and Kitase would say ‘Where’s Tetsu’s plan book?’ as they started looking forward to it each time.”

“However, in the end, those ideas weren’t used for Final Fantasy V, but when we started on Final Fantasy VI, they were used for Shadow and Setzer. After that, it was a great experience for me, to have something I arranged go out there in the world. I believe that being in that position is what may have led my being appointed to Final Fantasy VII.”

Credited for involvement in many games including Character Design for beloved RPG hits Final Fantasy VI, Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy X, and many mothers. Nomura is also credited for the creation of Kingdom Hearts franchise. Specifically Director, concept design, main character designer, storyboard designer, and base story are noteworthy titles among Nomura’s work on the original title.

More recently, Tetsuya Nomura is directing the upcoming Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy XV games for Square Enix which will arrive on PlayStation 4 and Xbox ONE upon completion – perhaps with a system-selling impact as seen with many past installments of these titles. Nomura is also involved with concept game design, character design, as well as base story among his responsibilities with Final Fantasy XV (pronounced: Final Fantasy Fifteen).

Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix Trailer from Square Enix Amongst FFXV, KH3, and FFXHD

Square Enix Blockbuster Games 2014

With the newly (and for most, *finally*) announced Kingdom Hearts III heading to Xbox ONE and PlayStation 4 next-gen from Square Enix, many are shuffling into the already-anticipated Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix coming stateside September 10, 2013 headed up by designer and director Tetsuya Nomura of Final Fantasy fame and named one of the most creative game designers of all time by the western press. All eyes are on Square Enix, Nomura, and crew as they have also debuted the long in the making announcement which caught many by off guard as Final Fantasy Versus XIII was renamed to Final Fantasy XV (that’s right baby, fifteen) and will be coming exclusively to PlayStation 4 and Xbox ONE along with Kingdom Hearts III (both on undisclosed release dates).

FFXV is actually something people have never seen before from a Final Fantasy game and yet it seems Nomura has captured the interest of the original fanbase once again with the potential to redeem the series for all who aren’t a part of the FFXIII fanbase which rages on as Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII approaches release this November 21, 2013 in Japan, February 11, 2014 in North America,  February 14, 2014 in Europe, and February 13, 2014 in Australia. As if that weren’t enough for die-hard ‘Squeenix’ fans to go ballistic over, there’s also the Final Fantasy X & X-2 HD Remaster is coming to PlayStation 3 and the PlayStation Vita.

Perhaps Square Enix may be a little hard to keep track of, but the potential of each game named far exceeds what they have released in the “current generation” time period leading up until this point. Gamers should have high hopes for what Square Enix is set to deliver over the next couple of years and have faith in the long process of S.E.’s development teams refining and meeting that potential before its release.
