A Final Fantasy VII remake is something fans have wanted since at least the beginning of last generation, when Square Enix showed off a tech demo in which they recreated the opening movie from VII in PS3-quality graphics. It turned out to be nothing but a tease. That doesn't mean that a remake won't ever happen though, although it may not be quite what fans had expected.
Square Enix have today announced a remake of Final Fantasy VI - originally released as Final Fantasy III in the US - for mobile devices, due for release in Winter. It won't be a straight up port. The game will receive both visual changes and gameplay updates to fit with on-the-go gaming.
Fancy something a little bit Trials on the iOS app store, but not sure what you want? Maybe you search, only to come across Real Flying Racing Rider Hero from Li Huizhen. It seems familiar somehow. Why? Because they ripped their logo directly from Mario Kart.
Until very recently, it seems like Android users would be doomed to waiting when it came to Plants Vs Zombies 2. There was little in the way of talk about it, definitely no firm release dates... It meant that while many of us were enjoying the game on our iOS devices, others were taking to Facebook in their thousands for being left out. Today we discover just why those people were forced to suffer so damn much: Apple paid a lot of money.
Finally! GTAV is mere hours away from releasing worldwide. Are you excited? Are you one of the lucky few who got it early? Needless to say, it's my most anticipated game since.. well since GTAIV I suppose. Still though, let's not forget all those other releases this week too. Hot Wheels, PES 2014 and Zelda HD are just some of the games brave enough to release this week.
The Plants Vs Zombies 2 Facebook page has been updated with some new graphics, graphics which confirm Plants Vs Zombies 2 will be available to download from Google Play in Autumn of this year.
You didn't think you'd be waiting long did you?
Warframe is now going to be available as a free download when the PS4 launches in a few months time, but it won't be alone. Digital Extremes have this weekend announced Warframe Nexus, a mobile app for iPhone and Android that allows you to organize your in-game tasks and character without being sat at the PlayStation 4.
Anuman Interactive have today announced Garfield Kart, an arcade racer based on the famous comic book series. With eight racers to choose from and sixteen tracks to master, Garfield Kart will have you exploring alternative routes and talking no end of lasagne when it releases in October of this year.
A forum at the Bioware Social site has revealed a new social game, Heroes of Dragon Age, may be announced in the near future. The forum, which is definitely set up for public access (with role playing and feedback sub-forums set up) is locked to posters, but is accessible at the link above.
