Final Fantasy VII Remake Release Date Finally Announced

Square Enix has released a new trailer tonight for the Final Fantasy VII Remake which reveals the release date as well.

Square released the trailer as part of their Final Fantasy concert and has a lot of new footage. Along with the footage, the trailer reveals the game will release March 3, 2020. Square Enix already confirmed the game is still releasing in episodes so this is presumably the first one.

The highly anticipated remake was originally announced in 2015 but we’ve only heard anything about this year. For more on the game and all things Square Enix check out their E3 press conference tomorrow at 6 p.m. PST. In other JRPG-that-took-a-long-time news, check out new info on Kingdom Hearts III’s new DLC.

The Nintendo Switch Exclusive Title, Little Friends: Dogs and Cats Receives A May 28th Western Release Date!

Today, the Little Friends: Dogs and Cats Twitter account announced that Little Friends: Dogs and Cats “will release in North America, Europe & Australia on May 28, exclusively on Nintendo Switch!” The Twitter account also responded to their release date announcement tweet with news that “Little Friends: Dogs & Cats will also be playable at PAX East & EGX Rezzed!”

So if you have the time and chance to attend either event, and want to meet your future furry friend, I’d recommend getting to their booth as soon as possible.

I covered the news a couple of weeks ago and discovered that Little Friends: Dogs and Cats released in Japan last year via Nintendoeverything.com’s article. I also found out that Sold Out Games, the developers behind Little Friends: Dogs and Cats, had announced plans to release the title in the west this Spring. This was also thanks to Nintendoeverything.com’s article covering the news.

At the time, we didn’t receive a solid release date. To check out that article, click here. However, it appears Nintendolife.com reported that the developer’s behind the title released a new press release that shares more information about the game. Here’s what was mentioned in the new press release, according to Nintendolife.com.

“Developed by Imagineer, Little Friends: Dogs & Cats is the first virtual pet simulator for Nintendo Switch. Choose from a variety of puppies and kittens to pet, feed, walk and play with in an adorable pet sim that’s fun for all ages. Take your Little Friends for walks, compete in the flying disc tournament and play with their favourite toys to develop a long-lasting friendship. Or dress them up in over 600 stylish accessories to make them look their best!”

As I mentioned in my previous article, I’m really pumped for this title. From what was shown in the announcement trailer (footage courtesy of the Sold Out Games YouTube channel), I believe this title will be great for those who want to take a break from their work-life. It may also be a great game-to-play on your spare time as well.

Speaking of play-time, I want to remind you again that individuals who are attending either PAX EAST or EGX Rezzed this year will be given the chance to play the title before it’s released in the west. Yet, since the Nintendo Switch’s region free, I believe you can also purchase the title on the Nintendo JP eShop using a Japanese Nintendo account.

However, my best guess is that the title’s Japanese version does not include other languages. If you’re okay with that, then go ahead and purchase the title on the Japanese Nintendo eShop. To learn how to do that, click here (article courtesy of eurogamer.net).

We’ll be sure to update you all when or if more Little Friends: Dogs and Cats news is shared via a gaming media website or from the title’s developers.

Resident Evil 0, 1, & 4 Will Be Released On The Nintendo Switch eShop on May 21st, 2019!

Today, the Resident Evil Twitter account announced that Resident Evil, Resident Evil 0, and Resident Evil 4 will be heading to the Nintendo Switch via its eShop page on May 21st, 2019. The Twitter account made sure to emphasize the Nintendo Switch’s emphasis for playing-it-on-the-go while noting that people can begin pre-ordering the games on February 28th.

The Resident Evil Twitter account also shared some important information that both European and American Nintendo Switch owners should be aware of. Here’s what the Twitter account stated after announcing the games’ release date.

“European Switch owners will be able to grab all three games as separate digital downloads through the Nintendo eShop! More info coming soon.”

“North American Switch owners will be able to purchase Resident Evil Origins Collection at retail, bundling together both RE0 and 1! Stay tuned for more info.”

Based on the announcements above, it appears European Nintendo Switch owners may not have a chance to buy any of the titles physically, or in a bundled package. Yet, for North American consumers, while they have the ability to buy RE0 and 1 in a package, their bundle doesn’t include Resident Evil 4.

Either way, it’s a bummer that both European and American Nintendo fans won’t have an option to buy all three games in one bundle. Hopefully, as the weeks progress, we’ll see a bundle like that be announced soon.

For those unfamiliar with the titles’ history with Nintendo, Eurogamer.net summarized Resident Evil 0, 1, and 4’s origins with Nintendo. According to their article, they state that “Resident Evil 0 and 4 launched first for Nintendo GameCube, back during the days of Capcom’s close partnership with Nintendo and that it seemed likely for these titles to arrive on Nintendo’s latest console-handheld hybrid.

Also, I’d love to give a shout-out toward Capcom’s Resident Evil community manager @ImKatastrophe for keeping her word when tweeting that more news about these titles would come by the end of February. To learn more about that tweet, click here.

We’ll be sure to update you all when the Resident Evil Twitter account shares more information about these Resident Evil titles.

Ubisoft Lists Assassin’s Creed III Remastered For Nintendo Switch On Their Club Website!

Today, vooks.net stumbled upon interesting information when searching through Ubisoft’s Club website. Apparently, the website claims that Assassin’s Creed III Remastered will be coming to the Nintendo Switch.

To access and see this listing for yourself, vooks.net states, “You need to be logged in to see it, but on the Ubisoft Club website, the game is clearly listed as coming to the Switch.”

From what I know, there’s been no word about this “listing” getting taken down–making me assume that the game’s web-page hasn’t been altered yet. Whether this was a simple mistake made by one of Ubisoft’s employees, is another question I can’t provide a solid answer for either.

However, if we take this as confirmation that the title’s indeed coming to Nintendo’s latest system, then that begs another question regarding its release date, and whether it’ll come out the same-day as the other platforms.

As written by vooks.net

“late last week Assassin’s Creed III Remastered was given a release date for all the other consoles and PC, but not the Switch. It’s been rumoured to be coming to the Switch, listed at retailers even – but now there’s even more fuel on the fire.”

With all these port rumors floating around, it’s no wonder fans are asking for Nintendo to deliver their long-awaited early-year Nintendo Direct. Maybe, with that eventual direct, we’ll get confirmation about this rumor and others shared online so far.

We’ll be sure to keep you all updated on more news concerning this game and others when officials over at Ubisoft or Nintendo speak on the matter or show the title off.

Spyro Reignited Trilogy Might Be Coming To The Nintendo Switch in August!

I guess Spyro might be flying and defeating baddies on Nintendo’s latest system soon. According to Nintendolife.com, Twitter user @Angryspace discovered that a German GameStop website posted a listing for Spyro Reignited Trilogy on Nintendo Switch–along with its release date.

It looks like the purple dragon isn’t keen on letting his bandicoot friend have all the spotlight on the Nintendo Switch, huh?

Apparently, Twitter user @AngrySpace discovered this listing some time ago on a German GameStop website. It shows that Spyro Reignited Trilogy’s coming out on August 16th, 2019 for the Nintendo Switch. However, according to Nintendolife.com, who provided a link to the website for their readers pleasure, the listing has been taken down and is no longer available.

This could mean one of two things. The first option is that it could’ve been a minor mistake made by one of the employees in charge of the website. The second option is that it was taken down because the retailer didn’t want to get into trouble with Nintendo for revealing the fact that Spyro’s coming to their hit handheld-home console platform yet.

Even so, Nintendolife.com notes that there’s been some instances where the game was hinted at or accidentally listed as coming to the Nintendo Switch. They linked their articles discussing how Nintendo‘s and Spyro Reignited Trilogy’s websites accidentally showcased that this game’s coming to the Nintendo Switch.

The stranger part about this whole debacle is that NintendoLife spoke with the game’s publisher, Activision, for reassurance, and NintendoLife “received a very standard, nothing-to-announce-style answer in response.

Personally, I think that there’s many fingers pointing at this game coming out on the Nintendo Switch. I can see it being announced very-soon. However, like I always say, it’s best to takes these mistakes with caution than excitement because there’s a slight chance these are just simple mistakes.

We’ll keep you updated when more news about the Nintendo Switch version of Spyro Reignited Trilogy, if anything else arises online.

What do you think about this news? Should we take these silly mistakes as truth that Spyro Reignited Trilogy’s heading to the Nintendo Switch? Let us know on Facebook and Twitter, and follow us for more Spyro Reignited Trilogy news, and everything gaming too.

Many Retailers Confirm That Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled’s For Nintendo Switch’s Release Date Remains Unchanged!

If you were worried about the Nintendo Switch version of Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled getting delayed, than you can put those concerns to rest.

According to Nintendolife.com, “multiple retailers  including Amazon and GameStop have now opened pre-orders for the Switch version of CTR” and that on Nintendo UK’s game page this title’s release date’s still June 21st, 2019, meaning, it’ll release alongside the other systems at the same time.

In December, the month where the game was officially revealed at the 2018 Game Awards Event, Nintendolife.com reports that “concerns were raised when multiple retailers removed pre-order options and terminated current customer pre-orders (at the time) for Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled on Nintendo Switch.

They also report that Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled for Nintendo Switch’s digital and standard section on its official website displayed “a ‘Coming Soon’ message” regarding it’s release date. Remember, the game was officially announced at the 2018 Game Awards Event and at end of its reveal trailer, it received a June 21st, 2019 release date for all platforms–except the PC.

Thankfully, as mentioned above, fans’ concerns for the Nintendo Switch version’s release date can be put to rest as many retailers still have the game set for June 21st, 2019–according to Nintendolife.comAlthough they state that the game’s official website still has the coming-soon message listed under the Switch variant, I have faith that this game will not receive the Dark Souls: Remastered treatment.

We’ll keep you all updated when more news about Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled for Nintendo Switch is publicly shared.
