Final Fantasy VII Remake

If Kingdom Hearts III is not in your interest in gaming news, maybe you’ll like some Final Fantasy VII Remake news. According to Crunchyroll news, it appears that Square Enix has updated the game’s cover with something interesting. At the Square Enix website, Final Fantasy VII Remake new cover shows a PS4 exclusive label with a limited time date. The date states you can play first on PS4 and it will be timed exclusive until March 3rd, 2021. What does this mean? In assumption, it could mean that Final Fanastu VII Remake will be on PS4 only on initial release and then after the time is up, this game could go on to other consoles such as XB1, PC or possibly Switch. It’s unknown right now but we could get FFVIIR on other platforms in 2021 or later.

Hello everyone, this is Matthew, a fan of the game series Kingdom Hearts. it has been months since Square Enix released the long awaited game Kingdom Hearts III. With these past news such as Kingdom Hearts joining Xbox One, I am surprised they haven’t made one for Nintendo Switch, PC or Stadia. Without going off topic, it was previously announced that Kingdom Hearts III was going to be getting a DLC called ReMIND in which gamers will continue the adventure withing Kingdom Hearts III. It was hinted a whole back that gamers would be able to play as many characters and unlock new keyblades. Recently, Square Enix revealed in a trailer of new announcements regarding to Kingdom Hearts III ReMIND. Unfortunately, Square Enix removed the trailer because it involves content that will contain spoilers to anyone who hasn’t completed Kingdom Hearts III or reached near the end of the story. In that trailer, also according to IGN, the DLC is being released in 2020 on two different dates depending on console choice. PS4 owners will get ReMIND on Jan 23th and Xbox One owners will get theirs on Feb 25th. In terms of characters, beside Sora, fans will be happy to play as Riku, Aqua and the newly announced Kairi.
