Preload for Final Fantasy 16 is available. I also discuss the map size of Assassin's Creed Mirage, and a possible Final Fantasy 6 Remake.
In recent developments, Yoshinori Kitase, the revered Producer of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake, has sparked a surge of excitement among fans with his comments hinting at the possibility of a Final Fantasy 6 Remake. This remark has generated a tremendous amount of interest within the gaming community, which is holding its breath in anticipation.
Kitase's statement came as a surprise during a recent conversation about the Final Fantasy 7 Remake, a project he and his team are currently engrossed in. He noted that within the walls of Square Enix, the parent company and the developer of the Final Fantasy series, there is growing momentum in favour of a Final Fantasy 6 Remake.
While it's still unclear whether this interest will result in the initiation of a remake project, the possibility alone has led to significant speculation within the gaming community. The Final Fantasy franchise has been a cornerstone in the gaming industry, with each release raising the bar in terms of graphics, gameplay mechanics, and storytelling.
The idea of bringing back Final Fantasy 6, a classic from the 1990s era, with modern graphics and possibly new gameplay elements, is indeed tantalising. This was a game that introduced many players to the realm of role-playing games (RPG), thus, a remake could reintroduce this classic title to a new generation of gamers.
Meanwhile, rumours are also circulating about a potential Final Fantasy X remake. The series has taken a turn towards remakes and remasters in recent years, so it isn't completely out of the question. However, it's important to remember that these are just rumours at this point, with no official confirmation.
Regardless, these developments are sparking interesting debates among fans. If you could decide, which Final Fantasy game would you prefer to see a remake of?
Ubisoft is well-known for its expansive game worlds, with series like Assassin's Creed offering players vast lands to explore. In a recent interview with Easy Allies, a Ubisoft spokesperson disclosed details about the size of the map of their upcoming release, Assassin's Creed Mirage.
The statement reveals that the size of the Mirage map will deviate from the trend of increasing expanses seen in recent Assassin's Creed games like Valhalla and Odyssey. Instead, the map size will be much smaller, akin to the scale of Assassin's Creed Unity's portrayal of Paris. This shift in design philosophy may have an impact on the exploration aspect, a key part of the Assassin's Creed series.
The smaller scale, however, doesn't necessarily mean a downgrade. Assassin's Creed Unity, despite its more compact map, managed to create a densely detailed and atmospheric depiction of Paris during the French Revolution. If Ubisoft can replicate this level of detail for Mirage, we could be in for a visually stunning and immersive gaming experience.
The question is, with this new development, will you be playing Assassin's Creed Mirage?
