    Yoshinori Kitase Would Like Final Fantasy VIII Remake Done By The Younger Staff Of Square Enix

    By Koby,

    Yoshinori Kitase has been working as the producer of Final Fantasy VII Remake, but he shared his thoughts on a Final Fantasy VIII Remake in this week’s issue of Famitsu magazine.




    Famitsu: What about Final Fantasy VIII Remake?


    Yoshinori Kitase: “If the youth that inherits the genes of Final Fantasy can step up and do it, then I’d like to see it made. For Final Fantasy VII Remake, the project started from my desire to make Final Fantasy VII with today’s technology while I’m still here at Square Enix. So I’d like to see it [Final Fantasy VIII Remake] done by the youth of Square Enix.”


    Yoshinori Kitase worked on the story, system designs, event scenes, and more as the director of Final Fantasy VIII.


    Final Fantasy VIII first released in February 1999 for PlayStation in Japan. Final Fantasy VIII Remastered is now available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC as of September 3, 2019.

    Final Fantasy VII Remake director Tetsuya Nomura confirms Honey Bee Inn

    By Koby,

    This news is a bit old, but it's something I originally missed making note of. An issue of Weekly Famitsu a few months back had an interview with Final Fantasy VII Remake director Testuya Nomura, who shares various new details about the game and it answers quite a few questions I've seen people continue to ask around the internet such as whether or not the cross-dressing section is still intact and various other special events.




    Here are the noteworthy tidbits:

    • The watchmen of fate (the black mist in the trailer) are new mysterious beings that appear before the party wherever they go.
    • There are quite a bit of dialogue options. The dialogue changes depending on your response, so the sheer volume of dialogue has increased.
    • The Honey Bee Inn cross-dressing event is still in. It's been made more modern.
    • There are quite a few additions to the scenario. While the main story itself hasn’t changed, there are countless new events.
    • Aerith and Tifa are double heroines. One has a western-style look and the other an eastern-style look.
    • We wanted Tifa to have abs, so she has an athletic body type. The ethics department at Square Enix also told us that we had to tighten her chest as not to get unnatural during all the intense action.
    • With an emphasis on immersion and exhilaration, you can fight without stress through the use of shortcuts. When you open the command menu, time slows and you can fight like a command battle.
    • Each playable character has different enemy affinities.
    • An item is required for MP recovery.
    • For the sake of level design, we’re preparing a few new enemies where necessary.

    Final Fantasy VII Remake is due out for PlayStation 4 on March 3, 2020.

    The Walking Dead's New Spin-off First Look Trailer

    By Koby,

    While The Walking Dead’s second spin-off doesn’t have a title yet, that didn’t stop the cast from coming to New York Comic Con to discuss the series on a panel that, surprisingly, opened with a rather interesting trailer that’s just made its way online.


    Set 10 years after the beginning of The Walking Dead’s apocalypse, the new series focuses on a seemingly stable settlement of humans that have managed to create some semblance of normal life for themselves. Unlike the other shows set in this universe, the new series follows a group of younger heroes—teens who’ve all grown up never knowing a world without “empties,” their community’s name for the undead.



    The trailer introduces us to these kids as they go on a journey into the ruined world beyond their small settlement with a YA drama vibe.


    Get a first look at a new series from the world of The Walking Dead. Coming Spring 2020.

    ‘Borat’ Writer Dan Mazer in Talks to Direct ‘Home Alone’ Reboot for Disney+

    By Koby,

    Back in August, Disney chief Robert Iger announced that the studio would be developing reboots/re-imaginings of several family-friendly hits for its forthcoming streaming service Disney+, including Home Alone. Now we can report that Mazer is in talks to direct the movie.




    Saturday Night Live‘s Mikey Day and Streeter Seidell co-wrote the script, which is expected to follow a married couple who go to war with a young boy who has stolen something from them — a twist on the original premise of a young boy who goes to war with a pair of inept thieves looking to rob his house.


    Hutch Parker will produce alongside Dan Wilson, who serves as the president of Hutch Parker Entertainment. Production is expected to start in the first quarter of 2020, so expect casting to get underway soon. Melissa McCarthy has been rumored to be Disney’s top target for the Home Alone reboot, but she’s not officially attached yet, according to sources. Still, a McCarthy-Will Ferrell pairing on this Disney+ project would surely boost subscriptions to the nascent streaming service, which will need A-list stars to compliment its impressive library of IP.


    Of course, the ultimate success of the Home Alone reboot will hinge on the casting of its young star, and while the role is written for a boy, I still think Disney+ should be doing everything possible to get into business with Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood star Julia Butters, who went toe-to-toe with Leonardo DiCaprio and stood her ground. The studio should consider gender-flipping the role if she’s available, but if not, they should look at Good Boys star Brady Noon, who was hilarious as the foul-mouthed Thor and brought a certain sweetness to that role. He might be a couple years too old for the part, though, if they’re intent on casting a 9-year-old.


    The original Home Alone grossed more than $475 million grossed worldwide, making it the #1 movie of 1990. Its 1992 sequel, Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, took in $358 million worldwide, so the decision to reboot the Fox franchise makes a lot of sense. Fox has suffered a notable string of flops since the studio officially merged with Disney, though Ford v Ferrari is right around the corner and expected to be a hit with both critics and audiences, judging from its reception at the Toronto International Film Festival.


    Mazer is a longtime Sacha Baron Cohen collaborator who also wrote and produced Bruno, executive produced The Dictator, and served as writer-director on the comedian’s divisive Showtime series Who Is America? He also directed Dirty Grandpa and I Give It a Year, and wrote Office Christmas Party and Bridget Jones’s Baby. His next film, the teen comedy The Exchange, stars Ed Oxenbould, Avan Jogia and Justin Hartley. Mazer is represented by CAA, 3 Arts Entertainment and United Agents.


    Seidell is a veteran comedy scribe who came out of the CollegeHumor scene, while SNL star Day was recently seen in Brittany Runs a Marathon and Universal’s Little. He’ll soon be seen in Adam Sandler‘s next Netflix movie Hubie Halloween. He’s repped by ICM Partners, while WME and Artists First rep Seidell.
