‘Final Fantasy VII Remake’ is going to be a series of games

Despite its name, Final Fantasy VII Remake isn’t just going to be a remaster of the original. Producer Yoshinori Kitase said during a closed-door presentation at E3, “Our goal here is to remake this genre-defining RPG for a new audience, for a new era, and not just to make a straight one-to-one copy or a remaster.” So, this first game focuses on Midgar, which is a dark, steampunk-inspired city that’s dominated by the evil corporation Shinra. The first game focuses here because Kitase said, “it really is the most iconic location in Final Fantasy VII’s world.” The players still control Cloud and a group of mercenaries known as Avalanche to try and put a stop to Shinra’s evil ways.

Midgar is much bigger in this remake with the game encompassing two Blu-ray discs’ worth of content. According to The Verge’s Megan Farokhmanesh hands-on time with the game, the remake is like recent Final Fantasy games with players swapping between party members to do attacks in real time. There’s even a strategic element where players can slow down time to use magic spells or launch limit break attacks. Basically, you want to stagger the enemies while dealing tons of damage. Final Fantasy VII Remake is set to launch next March, but work on the second game is already in the works. It isn’t known yet how many games will be released.

‘Fall Guys’ introduces a mini-game Battle Royale dynamic

Indie game developer Mediatonic brings a fun twist to reality TV games and the Battle Royale genre by bringing these two together. Fall Guys meshes together Super Mario Party games with multiplayer Battle Royale. It’ll feature 30 or so mini-games where your customizable blob competes with around 100 players at a time to win at these randomly generated games. And like other Battle Royale games, it’ll whittle down those who don’t make the cut.

Mediatonic is considering throwing in some Twitch integration eventually, allowing players to select items or courses for streamers to play or even joining the game en masse. Fall Guys is set to hit the PC and PlayStation 4 in 2020.

Huawei’s take on the foldable phone was supposed to launch this month, but after Samsung experienced troubles with the review units it sent out, the Chinese company opted to delay the release of the Mate X. A spokesperson told CNBC that it’s conducting extra tests to make sure the device runs as it should. The foldable phone will be launched in September. Samsung hasn’t revealed yet when it’ll launch the Galaxy Fold.

Samsung reportedly denies July release of the Galaxy Fold

Embed from Getty Images

Rumours were going around that Samsung set a July release date for the delayed Galaxy Fold. The foldable device was originally supposed to launch on April 26th, but after reviewers encountered troubles with test units, Samsung opted to delay the launch of the device to fix the issues. Earlier this month, there were rumours that the company was going to launch the device in July. According to The Korea Herald though, this seems to be false. A Samsung official reportedly told them, “If we are running such a media event this month, we should be doing something by now. Nothing has progressed since the April delay.”

As The Verge points out, this could mean Samsung might just wait for the launch of the Galaxy Note 10 to introduce the Galaxy Fold (assuming that this won’t cannibalize each other’s sales). Back in May, Samsung co-CEO DJ Koh promised that the release of the Galaxy Fold “will not be too late.” But it seems we aren’t going to get a definite release date anytime soon. And Samsung isn’t the only one delaying its launch, Huawei has also pushed back the release of the Mate X from this month to September for more testing.
