E3 2015: Oh No, the PS4 Port of Final Fantasy VII Has Been Delayed Until Late 2015

Oh No, the PS4 Port of Final Fantasy VII Has Been Delayed Until Late 2015

Say it ain't so

We're not sure about you, but we're finding it pretty difficult to maintain hype for the PlayStation 4 port of Final Fantasy VII. It's probably because, y'know, an actual remake of the PSone classic was announced at Sony's E3 2015 press conference, which we guess renders the mentioned port a bit obsolete. Yes, you read that...

What Did Square Enix Announce During Its E3 2015 Press Conference?

Stop press

Another newbie at this year's E3 when it comes to publisher press conferences, Square Enix grabbed the bull by the horns and took the expo to task. The Japanese company showcased the likes of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Kingdom Hearts III, and Just Cause 3, but it was Nier that managed to get the most attention. If you missed any of the...

Was Square Enix's E3 2015 Press Conference a Success?

Keyblade kings

Square Enix's E3 2015 press conference was a slightly more humble affair compared to the bombast of yesterday's pressers, but the publisher still managed to pack it with a diverse selection of games. The new Nier title announced for the PlayStation 4 was probably the biggest highlight, but the sumptuous new Kingdom Hearts III...

E3 2015: Augment Yourself with Deus Ex: Mankind Divided's First Gameplay Footage

Augment Yourself with Deus Ex: Mankind Divided's First Gameplay Footage

Ex marks the spot

As expected, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided took up a decent chunk of Square Enix's E3 2015 press conference. The cyberpunk sequel got a shiny new trailer at the event, complete with the grizzly voice of main character Adam Jensen. Mostly made up of gameplay, the footage looks pretty great, and it seems as though Jensen's going to be...

Get a Glimpse of Star Ocean 5 PS4 Gameplay Straight from Square's Presser

A drop in the ocean

The oddly named Star Ocean 5: Integrity and Faithlessness got its first gameplay showing at Square Enix's E3 2015 press conference. The action role-playing game seems a little rough around the edges, but the developer stressed that a very early build of the release was on show. Sporting some nicely crafted environments and...

Square Enix's New Team Tokyo RPG Factory Reveals Project Setsuna

All-new franchise for consoles

Square Enix's closing announcement didn't carry quite as much clout as we may have been hoping, but confirmation of the company's new JRPG-focused studio Tokyo RPG Factory is exciting. While we didn't see much, company gaffer Yosuke Matsuda revealed that a new title by the team named Project Setsuna will launch on...

We'll Hear More About Final Fantasy VII's Full PS4 Remake This Winter

We're in for cloudy weather

Square Enix was back to its old tricks during its live E3 2015 press conference, as it decided to show the same Final Fantasy VII Remake trailer that debuted at Sony's earlier event. The CG clip sent shivers through our bodies once again, but sadly, the Japanese publisher didn't have anything new to share. You can...

Kingdom Hearts III Wins The Key to Our Hearts with Gameplay Trailer

More than meets the eye

After scaring all of Square Enix's E3 2015 conference viewers by showing a Kingdom Hearts mobile game at first, the Japanese publisher relieved everyone's fears by following this up with the most anticipated title of the show: Kingdom Hearts III. Thankfully, not only did we get a cutscene with a young Xenanhort and (perhaps)...

E3 2015: What Have They Done to Lara Croft's Face in Rise of the Tomb Raider?

What Have They Done to Lara Croft's Face in Rise of the Tomb Raider?

Changing appearances

Seeing as Microsoft stuck rigidly to its Holiday 2015 qualifier for Rise of the Tomb Raider's exclusivity, we can safely assume that it's coming to the PlayStation 4 next year. As such, we're stretching things a little, we know – but its gameplay demonstration is probably just about worth sharing here. In the clip, we see...

What a world

A surprise announcement at Sony's E3 press conference - and not just because it's coming to Vita - Square Enix is developing a turn-based role-playing game known as World of Final Fantasy. The title, which is incredibly cute, celebrates the, er, world of Final Fantasy. The release's debut trailer is a short one, but we're certainly...

Are We Dreaming? Final Fantasy VII Remake Is Coming to PS4

Wait what

We have no words, only feelings. In an announcement that was rumoured, but we couldn't possibly believe, Final Fantasy VII is being remade on PlayStation 4. No, really, it is - and we're not talking about the PS4 remaster. An actual remake of Cloud and co.'s epic journey. All we have right now is a CG trailer, but honestly, that's enough...

Today's Crazy Rumours Include Final Fantasy VII and Shenmue

But of course

It wouldn't be E3 without some utter nonsense doing the rounds – and the global gaming media is bringing out the big guns today. First up is French website JeuxActu.com, which is reporting that Shenmue III will be announced as a PlayStation 4 exclusive during Sony's media briefing this evening. It doesn't cite a source, but its...

Square Enix Has At Least Six Secrets to Share

But what could they be?

Stop press! Square Enix has hinted that it has secrets to share during its E3 2015 press conference next week. The publisher teased the tidbit during a borderline obnoxious trailer, which bleeps out at least six different reveals. There's no real hint as to what any of the censored items could pertain to, so you'll have to...
