Subaru BRZ Final Edition to be sold in Germany

Both the Subaru BRZ and its Toyota 86 Sibling have been confirmed to have an impending second generation (well, confirmed before the pandemic), which means it's about time to start warmly saying goodbye to the current models. They deserve it, because although many will remember the sports cars for their lack of power, they should be remembered as affordable, sharp-looking, flickable sports cars with rear-wheel drive, manual transmissions, and an extremely fun chassis. As first reported by Motor1, Subaru Germany is sending the BRZ off with a limited-run Final Edition.

To start, no, the Final Edition does not have any powertrain upgrades. In Germany, the 2.0-liter remains the same at 197 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed manual is the base transmission setup, while a six-speed automatic transmission will cost an extra $1,850.

Final Fantasy VII Remake Will Not Be Exclusive To The PS4 Forever

Final Fantasy VII Remake will be an exclusive to the Sony PS4. It is accepted that that is the case, but as it turns out, it isn’t necessarily 100% true. According to the box art for the upcoming game, there is mention that the exclusivity for the PS4 is a timed one and that it will run for about a year or so.

According to the label, it claims that Final Fantasy VII Remake will be a timed exclusive for the PS4 until the 3rd of March, 2021. After which, presumably the game will find its way to other platforms. However, there is no mention of which platforms the game will be available after that, although if we had to venture a guess, the Xbox will be a likely candidate and maybe the PC.

Final Fantasy VII Remake Director Thinks Final Fantasy VIII Remake Is A Possibility

But could there be plans to maybe approach other Final Fantasy games in a similar manner? In an interview with Japanese publication Famitsu (translated by Siliconera), Final Fantasy VII Remake’s director Yoshinori Kitase said that a Final Fantasy VIII Remake could be a possibility, although he noted that he might not necessarily be the one to do it.

According to Kitase, “If the youth that inherits the genes of Final Fantasy can step up and do it, then I’d like to see it made. For Final Fantasy VII Remake, the project started from my desire to make Final Fantasy VII with today’s technology while I’m still here at Square Enix. So I’d like to see it [Final Fantasy VIII Remake] done by the youth of Square Enix.”
