Final Fantasy VII

Hello my beautiful materia! This week on NEP, we’re joined by special guest and JRPG expert: Barry from the Nintendo Fuse Podcast. This episode is all JRPG and Square-Enix focused, as we examine the more recent years of Square-Enix (with some love for the classics, too, of course!). Oni Dino also goes into his impressions at length about the demo of Final Fantasy VII Remake, sharing his love and frustration.

Topics include FFXIII trilogy, XIV, XV the Kingdom Hearts series, and more. We end up asking the question, “What can Square-Enix do to revitalize the series?” “What if the FFVII series of releases starts to underperform?” and “Are consumers giving this release structure a dangerous pass?” The main topic of the FFVII Remake demo leads us to talk about the issue of selling the game in multiple parts over multiple generations of hardware and over (presumably) multiple decades. We’ve got three very different, and very opinionated perspectives. Join us, as we take a very deep dive to examine the character writing, the battle system, controls, camera and more of Final Fantasy VII Remake’s demo.

Play-Asia has opened pre-orders for the just announced Final Fantasy VII & Final Fantasy VIII Remastered Twin Pack. You can reserve it here.

As a reminder, this is the first physical release of Final Fantasy VII & Final Fantasy VIII Remastered. It originates from Asia, but full English support is included.

Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy VIII Remastered are getting a physical release, Square Enix has revealed. The two RPGs will be sold in a single package for Switch later this year. Best of all, an English language option has been confirmed.

Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy VIII Remastered are both currently available on the Switch eShop. The latter game was thought to be receiving a physical version, but that didn’t pan out. Now, however, we know that there will be a physical edition for both classics thanks to this new Asian release.

Hello my beautiful Popos and Nanas! Oni and Galen have a great discussion overall, in our most intimate episode of NEP yet. We talk localization and well-written characters in fiction, the pros and cons of the Switch Lite (and what this could mean for a future “Pro” variant), Dr. Mario and how different in design it is, and we tie things up with a discussion of Fire Emblem and LGBTQ+ representation in media and video games. We hope you enjoy.

Hello my beautiful materia! We’re closing out our celebration of E3 this week on NEP with another bonus episode. We start things off by discussing Final Fantasy VII Remake since Oni’s been playing the original on Switch lately. We then chat about the event as a whole, how E3 changes moving forward into 2020 and what it means for the games industry as a whole. Galen and Oni also discuss Microsoft’s Scarlett and trends in games at E3, too. Check below the break for more details and timestamps.
