Final Fantasy 7 Remake trailer revealed
During Sony’s State of Play last night, a new trailer was revealed for the much-anticipated remake of Final Fantasy VII.
The trailer gives us a glimpse at various characters including Aerith, Barrett, Sephiroth, and Cloud – all looking very much like their Advent Children counterparts. And as if the visuals aren’t enough to get you truly excited for this remake, turn up the sound and prepare to be hit in the feels as Aerith’s theme kicks in.
No release date has been announced for the Final Fantasy VII Remake but we can expect to hear more news in June.

The original Devil May Cry is heading to Switch
Capcom is bringing the original Devil May Cry to Switch, later this year.
The announcement came via Twitter, along with a release window of “this summer.” Further details should be expected closer to the time.
Devil May Cry was first released on the PlayStation 2 in 2001 and introduces us to the demon-slaying Dante as he seeks to avenge a family member’s death. The original game, along with Devil May Cry 2 and 3 were given the HD treatment last year for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC but there’s no news on whether the latter games will follow to the Switch.
Apex Legends is heading to mobile
EA’s latest investor call has revealed plans to bring the Respawn’s popular battle royale, Apex Legends, to mobile.
Apex Legends has enjoyed huge success since its launch in February, and with PUBG and Fortnite mobile versions doing so well, it’s hardly surprsing that EA is after its own slice of the mobile market.
There’s no news on when we can expect to see Apex on mobile but we’ll be sure to update you as soon as we hear more.
