E3 Gaming Conference just ended but not before we scoured the floor to get a look at what’s hot in the gaming world.
Final Fantasy VII Remake is a reimagining of the iconic original game that redefined the RPG genre, diving deeper into the world and its characters than ever before. The first game in this project will be set in the eclectic city of Midgar and presents a fully standalone gaming experience that provides a great starting point to the series.
FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE will debut first on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system on March 3, 2020 and already people are preordering.
We are getting a sneak peek at an entirely new version of “Minecraft Earth”. It’s an all-new, free-to-play augmented reality title for mobile devices that brings the creative nature and quirky game design of Minecraft to the real world. Coming out this summer, players can sign up for the beta at earth.minecraft.net
“Minecraft Earth” borrows elements from the original game, but expands gameplay options and characters to create a new experience that can be enjoyed alone or with friends. Building, Adventures, and other experiences can happen in either table-top mini mode or in full life-size AR.
