Final Fantasy VII

This week on our Nintendo Podcast, the death-match for the GOTY commences. The lads argued so hard that it had to be a two-parter. This episode covers the biggest disappointment of 2020, honorable mentions, and the coveted GOTY award.

Check out the first half of the show where we give awards for Biggest Positive Surprise, Biggest Embarrassment, Best New Character, Best Non-2020 Game, and Best Paperweight.

Square Enix is bringing the Final Fantasy VII / Final Fantasy VIII Remastered Twin Pack to Europe, the company has announced. This was previously released in Asia last year.

As the name implies, you’re getting two games here: Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy VIII Remastered. Both are being sold together as a single physical release.

Final Fantasy VII / Final Fantasy VIII Remastered Twin Pack releases in Europe on December 4 for €39.99. Square Enix is taking pre-orders through its online store here.

Final Fantasy VII has been updated on Switch, and the game is now at version 1.0.2. The update addresses just a couple of issues.

Below are the official patch notes:

Hello my lovely listeners-as-a-service! This week on Nintendo Everything Podcast, we’re bringing up the topic that Galen dubs, “evolving games”. These are games like Splatoon 2 and Super Mario Maker 2 that are back-loaded with post-launch content. Is this new release and marketing strategy to keep a game topical good or bad? Why is it done? Is this a model that can sustain itself for years to come? We also have more Final Fantasy VII Remake impressions now that Oni Dino has beaten the game, and we go hypothetical in our listener mail segment with dream studios working on dream IPs.

Hello my avalanche cuties! This week on Nintendo Everything Podcast, we’re talking remakes: Resident Evil 3 and Final Fantasy VII, with plenty of critique on the good, the bad and the horny Jessie. We cover some quick-fire news with a new Switch hardware model being referenced in some firmware code, Gamescom cancellation, game announcements and Jason Schreier leaving Kotaku. And in the listener mail segment, we admit our embarrassing rage moments while gaming. Come hang out and have a chill game time.

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.
