Delays are certainly nothing new in the video game industry, especially this year, what with the virus and all. Of course, that doesn’t make it any less unfortunate when things get cancelled and delayed, and on the chopping block this time around is the Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn North American Fan Festival. While it had originally been scheduled for this year, Square Enix is now considering a 2021 date for the fan festival. On top of that, the 5.3 patch for the game is being delayed by at least a month. This information was revealed through a post on the official website, in which producer and director Naoki Yoshida claimed that complications from the COVID-19 situation were the reason for both the cancellation and the patch delay.
Delayed back in December of 2019 and missing its original release window of January 23rd of 2020, Square Enix has nevertheless confirmed that Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition has a solid release date: August 27th of this year for both Android and iOS, as well as the Nintendo Switch and the PlayStation 4.
While it is extremely unfortunate news for all Square Enix fans, the much anticipated Final Fantasy 7 remake has been delayed until April. When will Final Fantasy 7 Remake Be Released? Initially, it was supposed to be released on March 3rd, but developer Yoshinori Kitase has declared that the game has been delayed until April 10th. Supposedly, the reason for this is to give the developing team more time to take care of some of the finishing touches for the game.
The Final Fantasy 7 Remake is not far off now, and lots of fans are excited for it. We already knew that the remake would make a lot of changes to the game mechanics to go along with that visual and audio overhaul, such as a big change to the battle system. Some fans might have been a little miffed about the impact on the game’s nostalgia value without a turn-based combat system, but it turns out they had nothing to fear. During a gameplay demo at Tokyo Game Show 2019, it was revealed that there will be a ‘Classic Mode’, which will revert the combat back to the old school 1997 turn-based menu system.
Final Fantasy 14 was a bit weird, in the sense that it was one of the few times the franchise branched off from single-player RPG into an MMO. It was also pretty confusing since it came right after a single player RPG entry and was succeeded by one as well, but it didn’t have any kind of moniker to denote that it was an MMO: it was just, ‘Final Fantasy 14.’
Let’s be honest; the hype surrounding Pokemon Go died quite some time ago. Not that nobody plays it any more, as plenty of people still do, but it’s not the same craze that it...
