Final Fantasy Digital Card Game Announced For Smartphones

While card games, even digital ones, have been around for a while now, it seems that in recent times they are starting to catch on in terms of popularity again. We have to wonder if this might have anything to do with the success that Blizzard is seeing with Hearthstone, but since then we’ve seen quite a few card games launch.

Now it looks like Square Enix wants in on the card game genre as well because they have announced the Final Fantasy Digital Card Game which will be launching for smartphones and the PC. As the name implies, this is a digital card game that will be based around the Final Fantasy franchise and will feature characters from the series.

Final Fantasy VII Remake Development Is Moving Along Just Fine

With the Final Fantasy VII Remake having been announced a few years ago, we haven’t really heard much about the game since, which unsurprisingly has led to some wondering when the game will be released, and whether or not development is actually going on, or could Square Enix have shelved it?

However the good news is that things are progressing nicely, at least according to the game’s producer Tetsuya Nomura who revealed the information to Famitsu during a Dissidia Final Fantasy anniversary event. According to Nomura, “As I said during E3, development is going favorably. I just wanted to say that the current PR priority is Kingdom Hearts 3, as it was during the ARTNIA event the other day, but after that it’ll be Final Fantasy VIII Remake, so please don’t worry.”

Square Enix Admits Final Fantasy Vii Remake Was Announced Too Early

Square Enix Admits Final Fantasy VII Remake Was Announced Too Early

The Final Fantasy VII remake was announced back in 2015 and now fast forward 3 years later, we still don't have anything to look forward to. The game's producer Tetsuya Nomura has reassured fans that the game is in development but when exactly we can expect its release is anyone's guess.

This means that fans could still end up waiting about 4-5 years at the very least. However it seems that this wait could have felt "shorter" had Square Enix chosen to announce the game at a later date, something that Nomura himself had admitted. Speaking to Multiplayer (via Stevivor), Nomura was quoted as saying, "I am aware that we announced it very early, but in the industry, word was starting to spread that we were working on the game, so we decided to stop keeping it a secret and to reveal it officially."

Tetsuya Nomura Reassures That Final Fantasy VII Remake Is In Development

While Kingdom Hearts 3 was no doubt the focus on Square Enix's E3 2018 presentation, a notable absence at Square Enix's presentation was the Final Fantasy VII remake. The game was announced a couple of years ago but fast forward to today, Square Enix has revealed little to nothing about the game and their progress.

We're sure many gamers are wondering about the state of the game and if they might even see it at all, but you can rest assured that the game is in development. This was confirmed by Tetsuya Nomura who is also the director of Kingdom Hearts 3, where he reassured fans that the game is in development and not in the concept stages.

New Final Fantasy Xi Mobile Screenshots Published Online

New Final Fantasy XI Mobile Screenshots Published Online

For the past several years, we've seen Square Enix bring various versions of their Final Fantasy games onto mobile. Now a few years ago, the company announced that they would be bringing Final Fantasy XI onto mobile, and that was a few years ago when the game was originally intended for a release in 2016.

This means that it's about a couple of years late, and for those who are worried about the fate of the game, fret not as Nexon (who is in charge of the port) has recently published several screenshots of the game, and along with a job listing seems to suggest that the game is indeed alive and well, and is only a matter of time before it is released to the public.

Final Fantasy Vii Remake Might Only Arrive In 2023

Final Fantasy VII Remake Might Only Arrive In 2023

In 2015, Square Enix announced that they were working on a remake to the legendary Final Fantasy VII title. However they failed to mention when it might be released, but last we checked it seems that progress on the game still has quite a ways to go, but if the recent reports are anything to go by, fans will have a considerably longer wait time.

According to a report from The Lifestream (via Destructoid), there was an alleged conversation recorded during a closed door event at the Final Fantasy 30th Anniversary. The conversation was between producer Yoshinori Kitase and development lead Naoki Hamaguchi where there was mention about how the game might only be released during Final Fantasy's 35th Anniversary, which would be five years from now in 2023.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake Hopes To Surpass The Original

Final Fantasy 7 Remake Hopes To Surpass The Original

While each Final Fantasy release is popular and beloved in its own right, it's hard to deny in the entire franchise, Final Fantasy 7 has managed to stand out on its own where its characters are some of the more identifiable characters from the series. So much so that it made sense that Square Enix would want to remake it.

However remaking it would definitely be a tall order given how many gamers loved the original, but the company is definitely that the remake will surpass it. According to a recent job listing (via Gematsu), it mentions that the goal they have for the remake is that it could be even good enough to surpass the original.
