This morning, Square Enix took to the stage at E3 2019, announcing a bunch of new information for the games they’ve got in the works. Here’s all they announced.
Final Fantasy VII Remake
There was a deep dive into Final Fantasy VII Remake. They announced they’ve got two Blu-Ray discs worth of gameplay content, but the first part would be Midgar as a stand-alone game. That is to suggest the release will still be staggered to some extent.
The combat takes place in real time, but levelling up a meter allows you to activate tactical combat with freezes time and allows you to plan out attacks, in a turn-based fashion. These attacks can also be mapped to buttons to keep things real-time too though if you prefer.
Collector’s/special editions were also revealed.
Life Is Strange 2
Got a new trailer. But, you know, the game’s been out for a while and the last two episodes are still coming out later this year.
Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles
Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles is getting a remaster treatment as well as a release for mobile platforms this year. The release will also include online multiplayer.
The game got a release date of the 22nd August and got a trailer.
Final Fantasy VIII Remaster
The Final Fantasy game plagued by licensing issues restricting its remaster is finally free. It’s coming this year to PS4 marking its 20th anniversary.
The long-awaited Avengers game from Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal finally has a proper trailer showing Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, the Hulk and Black Widow in action. And golly gosh, doesn’t it look incredible.
