Back in June at E3 2015 Final Fantasy fans were overwhelmed with joy when it was revealed that a remake of Final Fantasy VII was on the way. Many videos of fans reacting to the announcement can be found online and are very entertaining to watch (a few of them can be seen at the beginning of the video below).
The PlayStation Experience 2015 is being held this weekend, and during it the first gameplay footage from the Final Fantasy VII remake was shared. You can check it out below.
Old school gamers were treated to a pair of massive surprises during Sony’s E3 2015 press conference.
The first was a brief trailer that revealed that a remake of the all-time classic Final Fantasy VII is on the way. The second is the return of SEGA’s Shenmue series, which began in 1999 and was followed up with a sequel in 2001 but hasn’t been heard from since.
I’ve played a lot of video games in my days. It started, as it did for so many of us, when my father brought home a Nintendo one day, and the hypnotic colors and sounds of Super Mario Bros. quickly took a firm hold of our TV set and my own internal thought processor.
One of the many video games I’ve played is Kingdom Hearts, the first game in the hit series from Square Enix, which brings together characters from Final Fantasy, Walt Disney, and The World Ends with You. It’s also one of the few games I rage quit before beating, because Ursula from The Little Mermaid made me want to scream and cry and destroy and entire city using only a butter knife—something that still haunts me to this very day. Perhaps I’ll give it another go eventually, as the lack of closure is driving me bonkers (Seven hells, I beat Dark Souls!). But for now, it’s one that got the best of me.
Fun stories aside, the latest game to receive the Honest Game Trailers treatment from Smosh Games is…you guessed it! The Kingdom Hearts games. You can watch it below.
