Final Fantasy VII Remake Comes Before 2023

Among its entire role-playing series of games, Final Fantasy VII is undoubtedly one of the most fan-favorite titles. A high-definition remake of the game for PlayStation 4 was in talks for a while from E3 2015 but then everyone went silent on it. We do have an important update on that but just not the one that will probably make you happy. Square Enix has recently confirmed a date of release, which is before the 35th anniversary of Final Fantasy series and that date is year 2023.

During Final Fantasy 30th anniversary exhibition in Japan, Tetsuya Nomura, Yoshinori Kitase and Naoki Hamaguchi, three significant people related to Final Fantasy series were present in a panel there. The audio translated from their conversation reveals about 2023 but it also isn't a final set date. At least, people now know that before when they cannot get it anyhow. We also learned that Biggs and Wedge will have a different redesigned look that you saw them in early trailers.

Years before the official announcement of the remake in 2015, many gamers have been expecting an enhanced edition for some time. After releasing on 1997, it has sold over million copies worldwide and still has a solid fan base dedicated to the franchise. When it came out, it had a great impact on players as they achieved a tectonic shift in game making and its whole franchise by replacing two-dimensional sprites with 3D polygons and it was such a revolutionary step back then.

Now waiting for Final Fantasy 35th anniversary may seem quite a stretch but we know that Square Enix do not hurry with any of their titles, especially when it is as iconic as the one we are talking about. They do know how eagerly fans are waiting for the game to get their hands on; so they are only taking time to make sure that everything is in right order. We believe, fans can wait at least this long. Originally released on PlayStation console, Final Fantasy VII has later debuted on Android, iOS and PC.

PlayStation Network is Facing Issues! Again!

Players around the world are facing issues on the PlayStation Network again for the third time within the last three days. We are not saying that people are going for an outrage here but services that are linked to gaming and social media are “experiencing issues” as per the status page of PlayStation Network. They are working on the case to resolve it as soon as possible and patience from the fans will be much appreciated.

If the problem was regarding PlayStation Video, PlayStation Now or any other services, then the players would've normally ignored it for the time being. Since, the issue was messing with the online features of the gaming and social, people couldn't help it but getting a little concerned here. Most of the gamers were forced to play offline because of the problem as they couldn't connect to the online services of PSN.

PlayStation’s Twitter handle for helping with issues @AskPlayStation also tweeted on how to access to the PlayStation Network for those who are still trying.



The service page for PlayStation Network did acknowledge this and quickly acted towards a solution for it. The problems arose nearing this Friday noon, the very day when two major titles were about to be released; Dragon Ball FighterZ and Monster Hunter: World. Many were also expressing concerns when they weren't being able to play the newly arrived Monster Hunter: World on PlayStation 4 but then it was revealed that the game was having same trouble on Xbox One as well.

Most of the games, applications and online features were having issues launching during the disruption period. Different countries and regions also experienced the downed services and PSN reached out to them all with their status announcement on site and Twitter. This means, it was a widespread PSN issue and not just some minor interruption on limited area. Hopefully, the service page of PlayStation Network will post an update as soon as they fix the issue for good.
