Final Fantasy 7 Remake

  • In an interview with Final Fantasy 7 Remake Producer Yoshinori Kitase and Co-Director Naoki Hamaguchi, they share some details about Midgar.
  • Originally there were some locations in Final Fantasy 7 that were “implied”, meaning you wouldn’t actually see these in game and the screen would fade to black. However, in the remake the Square Enix team have worked on new areas all within the city, making for a “continuous experience”.
  • Kitase also explained why they decided to release the game in a number of parts, expressing that they would have had to cut back on visual graphic quality if they released the game as a whole. Instead they decided that an “immersive” setting was the goal. This meant they could also add further details and expand upon the story that fans know and love.
  • Final Fantasy 7 Remake will release on April 7th on Playstation 4.

Dishonored: The Role-Playing Game

  • Modisphius Entertainment have announced they have launched the Dishonored: The Role-Playing Game and is now available for tabletop.

The RPG brings players “into the turbulent Empire of the Isles, to tell stories of occult lore, intrigue and drama,” where you will play the role of the Protagonists.
  • You can choose from a range of roles from “grim assassins and rugged criminals, to intrepid explorers and stoic crown loyalists”.
  • The full rulebook for the tabletop is available in digital format for £15.00 GBP as well as a physical edition now available for pre-order for £34.99 GBP.
  • Those who pick up the digital version will receive a discount code that can go towards the purchase of the physical copy once printing and shipping become available, which at the moment has been delayed.
