Final Fantasy VIII: Remastered announced at E3 2019!!!

At last the world will finally see the JRPG classic from 1999 known Final Fantasy VIII remastered and released for multiple game consoles in the future. As many people know Final Fantasy VIII was released 20 years ago for the PS1 and was the direct sequel to the legendary FFVII game which was released in 1997. While Final Fantasy VIII May not have been quite as popular as its predecessor it still managed to sell at least seven million copies worldwide on the PS1. In fact, Final Fantasy VIII is actually within the top ten in relation to the best selling video games for the PS1. When Square Enix made an announcement about Final Fantasy VIII: Remastered for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and the Switch many people seemed ecstatic by the news at their E3 conference.

As it currently stands we know of a few features that Final Fantasy VIII: Remastered will include. We are aware of the fact that the remastered version of FFVIII will run cutscenes at least three times faster than that if the PS1 version. There is also improved gameplay which allows players to keep their ATB and HP maximum can perform special attacks at anytime. In addition, the option of turning off random battle encounters in the remastered version of FFVIII is also a feature that will make it stand from the original ’99 version of the game. As it currently stands Final Fantasy VIII: Remastered is expected to appear on the PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC sometime later in 2019.

Trials Of Mana Coming to the PS4, Switch and PC in early 2020!!!!

As fas as blockbuster announcements are concerned in relation to Nintendo Switch the reveal trailer for the Trials Of Mana is something that everyone is talking about. The Trials Of Mana is a high definition remake of a JRPG classic known as Seiken Densetsu 3 which appeared exclusively in Japan for the SNES back in 1995. Since its release back in the mid 90’s Seiken Densetsu 3 was never released in America mainly due to how popular 3D gaming was starting to become during that era. Even though, the 2D version of Seiken Densetsu 3 was ported for the Nintendo Switch back in 2017 it was available exclusively in Japan before appearing America in the Collection Of Mana on June 11th this year. Seiken Densetsu 3 is a game that includes multiple characters with their own storylines & endings and is considered to be one of the most underrated Action-RPG’s for the SNES.

There are many people who question how successful Trials Of Mana will be in the future especially after the release Secret Of Mana HD in 2018. The Secret Of Mana HD was a game that was solid but at the same time did not live up to many people’s expectations because it felt somewhat different from the original 16-bit version of the game. Hopefully, Trials Of Mana will not have that same issue especially since Seiken Densetsu 3 was never officially released in American retail stores in the past. As it currently stands Trials Of Mana is expected to appear on the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC in early 2020 and will be among the few RPG’s that Square Enix will have to offer better the second half of 2019 & 2020.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood will only appear digitally for Nintendo Switch!!!!

As many people already know Wolfenstein: Youngblood is set to appear on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and the Nintendo Switch this upcoming summer on July 26th. While Wolfenstein: Youngblood is quite possibly one of the most anticipated first-person shooter games of 2019 and we have recently just learned that it will not be receiving a physical release for the Nintendo Switch. Wolfenstein: Youngblood has been confirmed for a digital only release for the Switch console which is something that is actually more convenient for owners of the hybrid console in the long run. Also, its a well known fact that third-party games are not as popular for the Switch console as games such as Super Mario Odessey, Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild and others.

In fact, the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of Wolfenstein: Youngblood are probably going to sell more than the Switch port of the game. Either way, Wolfenstein: Youngblood will definitely be a success following its upcoming release and the fact that we are even getting a Switch port of the first-person shooter game is cool considering the fact that we do not have too many titles of the genre on that console.

Upcoming Games- R-Type Final 2: (2019)

As far as upcoming games are concerned in relation to 2019 the announcement regarding the release of R-Type Final 2 is something that caught many people by surprise a few days ago. Initially, the announcement of R-Type Final 2 was seen as an April Fools joke that had many people skeptical on whether or not is was really going to happen. In fact, we have not seen a major R-Type installment since the 2000’s when R-Type Final 1 was released for the PlayStation 2 back in ’03. But then again we did get to see R-Type Tactics for the PSP back in ’07. Also, we got to see R-Type Dimensions which was released for consoles such as the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360 back in ’09. By the early 00’s the R-Type series had already declined in popularity seeing that 2D side scrolling shoot em up genre of gaming had started to slowly go downhill following early 90’s.

Despite, the decline of the side scrolling shoot em up genre for over the past decade R-Type Final 2 will definitely be an attraction to retro gamers who have been fans of the R-Type series since the late 80’s. R-Type Final 2 is a title that is at least fifteen years in the making; with stunning 2.5D visuals and gameplay it has the potential to be the most popular shoot em up game of 2019-2020. Based on what we know a crowdfunding campaign for R-Type Final 2 is expected to begin in May 2019 and the development for the game will be lead by Granzella. Along with the resurrection of the Streets of Rage series with upcoming release of SOR 4 it looks like R-Type series could also be revived as well depending how successful Final 2 becomes in the future.

Devil May Cry 5 reaches over 2 million in sales!!!

The gameplay, storyline and visuals for Devil May Cry 5 is to die for and is already considered to be one of the best action-adventure games of 2019. Devil May Cry 5 is the first main entry within the series that Capcom has produced since 2008 and there are fans & critics who believe that its a better game that DMC 4.

Seeing how popular Devil May Cry 5 has been thus far many people are speculating how much the game will sell before the end of 2019. Devil May Cry 4 was a game that managed reach approximately 3 million units worldwide in sales by 2014. As it currently stands Devil May Cry 5 will definitely surpass its predecessor in sales and will most likely sold more than double of what DmC 4 did before the end of 2019.
