After recently just getting 9 minutes of gameplay for the upcoming remaster, NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139… drops another action-packed trailer, which gets us even more hyped for its release in a couple of months. The trailer is in Japanese, which is perfect, truth be told. Some parts of the trailer shows out of this world boss fights, bullet-hell type projectiles, and a closer look at the various characters in the game. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6oeGxoTFF18 It’s looking to be a good one, and fans of the series will want to check this out when the game launches on April 24.

Final Fantasy fans must be feeling great after the weekend. Between getting the FF7 Remake for free on PS Plus and 2 new mobile games in Ever Crisis and The First Soldier, the PS5 upgrade of Final Fantasy VII Remake has also been revealed. Entitled “Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade”, the PS5 version will sport various graphical and performance updates, along with a new DLC that introduces our favorite Materia thief, Yuffie. PS4 gamers who are looking forward to playing the new DLC content will be out of luck, unfortunately, as Square Enix have confirmed that the Yuffie DLC will not be coming to the PS4 and will be a PS5 exclusive. According to an FAQ page from the FF7R Intergrade Website, the new Yuffie episode is “optimised for PlayStation 5, so it is not available on PlayStation 4.” This effectively means that you’ll need a PlayStation 5, which is…

Those looking for a dynamic and vibrant game should look no further than Solar Ash, which revealed gameplay footage during Sony’s recent State of Play presentation. From the developers of Hyper Light Drifter, Heart Machine, comes this third-person action platformer that sees a Voidrunner named Rei on a mission to save her home from a black hole called the Ultravoid. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7adguXJNliQ The game looks sleek and stylish, with an aesthetic that is unmistakably Hyper Light Drifter-ish, and Solar Ash is described as a game of movement, giving Rei a world to showcase her fluid movements as she journeys throughout the Ultravoid. No specific release date has been given for the game, but Solar Ash will come to the PlayStation 4 and 5 as well as PC later this year.

If you aren’t taking notice to Deathloop just yet, then this new trailer may finally convince you to give it more than just a passing glance. Shown off during Sony’s State of Play presentation, a new Deathloop trailer was shown that, while there wasn’t really anything “new” that we don’t know of already, was an awesome and stylish trailer that we’ve come to expect from Arkane. If there was ever a trailer that sold you a game upon watching it, this could be the one. https://youtu.be/cGd–oZUBlA “Along with the different visual influences in each district, we wanted to ensure players would hear different things between the different regions of the island. The scores of each district are changed by the architecture and vibe of that particular location, as well as the Visionaries that call those areas home. Where Aleksis’ Updaam is all psyche-rock and vintage sci-fi tones, an area like…

Seemingly leaked even before the show, the brand new adventure “Pokemon Legends Arceus” has officially been announced and is scheduled to be release in 2022. The game will be set in Feudal Sinnoh and will be developed by Game Freak. Check out the announcement trailer below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YUW1ZWAq09M Here are some screenshots of the new title: You can watch the whole presentation, which also announced remakes of Pokemon Diamond and Pearl, below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iTZeVNwAmkk

Another announcement that was leaked prior to the actual show, Pokemon Diamond and Pearl are getting much-needed faithful remakes from the Nintendo DS in the form of Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, and will be developed by ILCA, who worked on Pokemon Home. These are definite fan favorites, so the response was indeed great! Check out the announcement below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BjCwUk06ZSk Here are some screenshots of the upcoming remakes: You can watch the whole presentation, which also announced a brand new game in Pokemon Legends Arceus, below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iTZeVNwAmkk

Update:The lineup is now confirmed by a post on the PlayStation Blog. PlayStation Asia Accounts will receive Knack 2 instead of Remnant: From the Ashes. https://www.facebook.com/PlayStationAsia/photos/a.159028020796545/4049173615115280 Original: After seeing what was arguably one of the best PS Plus lineups in recent memory which featured Control Ultimate Edition, the free games for March have allegedly been revealed and it looks to be another banger of a month for PS Plus subscribers. As spotted by Nibel on Twitter, the offerings for this month actually include 4 (!!!) games – Final Fantasy VII Remake (PS4), Farpoint VR (PS4), Remnant: From the Ashes (PS4), and Maquette (PS5). This was apparently leaked by the official PlayStation Netherlands Facebook Account, but has since deleted it. While sometimes, the lineup per region may differ, it could stand that this would be the main offering for most. https://twitter.com/Nibellion/status/1365274022997602305 It was leaked prior that FF7 Remake was going to…

It’s quite surprising that at this time, we haven’t seen the PS Plus free games for March, and there could be a reason why. As spotted by Twitter User Aibo (retweeted by Nibel), the FF7 Remake Intergrade Digital Deluxe Edition listing in the Japanese PSN Store shows this description, which says that, roughly translated: (* Added on March 1, 2021)The PlayStation®4 version “FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE” obtained as a free play by subscribing to PlayStation®Plus cannot be upgraded to the PlayStation®5 version.If you subscribe to PlayStation®Plus and have the PlayStation®4 version “FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE” that you obtained as a free play, you can purchase “FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE INTERGRADE Digital Deluxe Edition”. Long story short, Final Fantasy VII Remake will be the PS Plus free game for March but it cannot be upgraded to the PS5 version, Intergrade. This is not surprising, since the game was released only just…

One big gripe from PlayStation 5 owners was that the storage was too small to actually “collect” games in the system, needing to delete and redownload games once the paltry 667GB available is used up. Well, if reports are true, this won’t become a problem anymore as Sony is looking to open up the functionality of the internal M.2 expansion slot in the Summer. A report from Bloomberg brings this news, and we can imagine that many users will be happy about this. While the report does not mention if Sony will announce specific storage variants that are compatible with the system, it is at least a relief that the option will be available soon. Additionally, the firmware update to unlock higher cooling fan speeds will also be available according to the report. If you remember, it was mentioned that data was being collected as to how the fans are…

If you’ve been following the Capcom hack discussion from before, you’ll know that Monster Hunter Rise was allegedly set to release for the PC. Seems that news bit was true after all, as Monster Hunter Rise producer Ryozo Tsujimoto has indeed confirmed that the game will eventually make its way to PC sometime early 2022. Various other outlets like IGN and GamesRadar have confirmed the news as well. The confirmation also comes by way of Arekkz Gaming, a popular content creator that has been producing content for a lot of different games. You can check out the confirmation video below in its entirety. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q2EE7iWEqJs The PC release is still being developed, and there is no further news to share at the moment, but Tsujimoto assured fans that they will share more information when the time is right. Monster Hunter Rise is scheduled to release for the Nintendo Switch on March…

After a long while, we finally get updates for Kena: Bridge of Spirits. This was one game that stood out head and shoulders above the rest when it was first revealed and now, we get not just a new trailer, but a release date as well, slated for August 24. The trailer looks fantastic, which shows the titular character showcasing a good chunk of gameplay and the various characters that you’ll meet. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pWh5388AEHw Pre-orders are now available, and the game will set you back for $39.99 (around PHP2,000) for the standard edition and $49.99 (around PHP2,500) for the digital deluxe edition. Pre-ordering the standard edition will get you a pack of celebration hats, while the digital deluxe will include a digital soundtrack, a unique silver staff for Kena and golden Rot skin. Kena: Bridge of Spirits will be available on August 24 for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC.

Bravely Default II is out today for the Nintendo Switch and if you’re looking for a solid JRPG that follows the footsteps of the first 2 installments before it, you’ll be glad to know that the game has been receiving very positive reviews from various media outfits. According to Metacritic, the game is sitting at a score of 80 across 45 critic reviews, which is a promising sign for Switch owners. It’s looking very much like Square has done it again. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hv2Zvj49Y2g GamesRadar goes all the way and gives it a perfect score, saying “Bravely Default 2 is one of the best games to point to when people ask what makes JRPGs fun.” Game Informer gives it an 8, saying the game “succeeds at delivering what it’s best at: offering a taste of the past with the emphasis on creative class combinations, hordes of foes, and big boss battles. Bravely…

A lot of Final Fantasy updates for fans today! In between the Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade announcement to the 2 new mobile games in Ever Crisis and The First Soldier, fans may have missed out on this smaller but equally awesome announcement. Spotted on the Final Fantasy Twitter account, the full Final Fantasy VII Remake soundtrack is now available to stream via your favorite streaming services like Apple Music and Spotify. In fact, if you can’t wait, you can listen to it below or through this link in your app. https://open.spotify.com/album/2ufkFJsK2Hh2ZdmgrRmCv3?si=9umTYN6wTE-WJVH8sXloeA 156 Tracks! 8.5 hours of Final Fantasy music, enough to last you a whole work day! If there’s anything that the Final Fantasy VII Remake does right and even improves on, it would definitely be the soundtrack, which modernizes all the tracks but still retains the heart and soul of the original. BRB, tuning out!

Remember those FF7 trademarks – “Ever Crisis” and “The First Soldier”? Some wild speculation was made back then regarding remakes or whatever else, but now it’s been made official as both of these will be new mobile games. First up is Final Fantasy VII The First Soldier, described as “a battle royale game set in Midgar before the events of FFVII. As a SOLDIER candidate, make full use of your abilities in a battle for your survival.” You can view the teaser trailer below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=chSgLDIhWE0 Next is Final Fantasy VII Ever Crisis, described as “a chapter-structured single player game covering the whole of the FFVII timeline – including the events of the original game and the FFVII compilation titles.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j6ZDKZfr-i0 These announcements come hot on the heels of a State of Play reveal for Final Fantasy VII Intergrade, a PlayStation 5 upgrade that features our favorite Materia-stealing girl, Yuffie, and…

No, you’re not seeing things. Days Gone is indeed making its debut on the PC as one of the announcements from a big Sony-filled news day. While no release date has been announced yet, PC players can look forward to follow Deacon St. John’s adventures against the horde later in the Spring of 2021. As shows on the Steam page of the game, the PC version will include ultra-wide monitor support, unlocked framerates and improved visuals. The system requirements have also been revealed, which looks pretty reasonable, and doesn’t require a major upgrade.
