I wish every bit of news I threw out here was great, but this one not so much. For folks like me that grew up with those older Final Fantasy games, we're familiar with the name Nobuo Uematsu. The longtime composer for Square is now on an indefinite hiatus from his work due to health issues.
For those that may not be familiar with Uematsu, he has been a longtime composer for the majority of the Final Fantasy games in the main series except for FFXIII and FFXV. He's also composed for various other RP...
As promised, Square Enix revealed the extended Big Hero 6 trailer for KH3 just days prior to the start of the Tokyo Game Show.
In short the trailer itself is 3 minutes and 43 seconds long, approximately 2 minutes worth of extended footage primarily composed of more gameplay, cutscenes which include mild spoilers so be prepared.

The console will include twenty games, anchored with Final Fantasy VII. Although the whole library has not been revealed yet, Ridge Racer Type 4, Tekken 3, Wild Arms, and Jumping Flash have also been announced.

More remastered stuff! Apparently, Square Enix is delving a bit further into the remastered business. Shortly after I posted the news about The Last Remnant getting a remastered version, I was able to find out that Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles is also getting the same treatment.
When I say Crystal Chronicles, I mean the very first one that graced Nintendo Gamecube with its presence back in 2003 in Japan and 2004 in other regions. It also marked the first time a Final Fantasy title was released on...
