Final Fantasy Vii Remake Will Be Released In March 2020

Final Fantasy VII Remake Will Be Released In March 2020

It has been a few years since Square Enix announced the Final Fantasy VII Remake, but there has not been any word on the game’s release. The good news is that if you have been eagerly anticipating the release of the game, you’ll be pleased to learn that at E3 2019, Square Enix has confirmed that the Final Fantasy VII Remake will be coming out in March 2020.

This is good news because prior to this, there was no word on a release and there were even rumors suggesting that it might come in 2023, but thankfully it appears that those rumors have since been quashed. The game also appears to be an exclusive to the PS4 (which confirms that the PS5 might not be arriving anytime soon), so if you own a different console then you are out of luck.

Mazda's Skyactiv-X power and efficiency ratings released in Europe

Mazda's long-awaited Skyactiv-X engine is finally headed for production, though not yet for the United States. The Japanese automaker says "various European countries" will get access to the unique engine in the Mazda3 starting this fall. Still, the announcement is relevant to the rest of us because we now have official power levels and fuel efficiency numbers that we can use to compare the Skyactiv-X with other engines offered in the compact Mazda.

First, the power. According to Mazda, the 2.0-liter Skyactiv-X makes 178 horsepower and 165 pound-feet of torque. By way of comparison, the 2.5-liter Skyactiv-G engine currently used in the Mazda3 here in the States makes 186 hp and 186 lb-ft of torque. Sure, it's a little less powerful, but note that the displacements don't match and remember that the real reason the Skyactiv-X exists is to reduce fuel consumption.

Android Q Beta 2 Released With Notification 'Bubbles'

One of the upsides to this feature is that these chat heads are constantly there and are on top of existing apps, saving users the time from having to switch apps back and forth. Now it looks like the feature has been confirmed in the second beta of Android Q. In Google’s Android Developers blog, the company announced the new feature which they are calling “bubbles”.

From what we can tell, it sounds like the feature will work pretty much the same way as chat heads, except that this will work across more apps and notifications. According to Google, “Bubbles are great for messaging because they let users keep important conversations within easy reach. They also provide a convenient view over ongoing tasks and updates, like phone calls or arrival times. They can provide quick access to portable UI like notes or translations, and can be visual reminders of tasks too.”

From what we know about Google’s release habits, they typically release a developer preview for Android early in the year.

In a post by user Vergeben (via Nintendo Life), he says that there could be another Zelda game in the works, but apparently this particular title will not be for the Nintendo Switch. Instead it will be aimed at Nintendo’s handheld consoles and will be released as a 2D title on the Nintendo eShop.
