This was confirmed in a Japanese press release following the reveal of a new gameplay trailer last week, and it seems to be a polarizing decision.Game director Tetsuya Nomura made it clear that a multi-part release was planned for Final Fantasy 7 Remake when it was first shown off over three years ago, and that hasn’t changed.“With Final Fantasy VII Remake, we already have a preexisting story, so it wouldn’t really make sense if that isn’t encompassed in a multi-part series… So if we’re just looking at each of these parts, one part should be on par with the scale of one Final Fantasy XIII game,” producer Yoshinori Kitase said to Game Informer in 2016.Considering the latest trailer only showcased events and characters we know from the original’s first disc (which launched across 3 back in 1997), it seems we’ve only seen footage from the first part so far. We see Cloud, Barrett and the rest of AVALANCHE launching their assault on Shinra’s Mako Reactor and glimpses from Aerith’s first appearance. It all looks beautiful, and we’ll see more of it at E3 2019. Final Fantasy 7 Remake is currently in development exclusively for PS4 with no word on other platforms yet. It’s safe to assume that the remaining parts will either be cross-platform or launch for PS5, which will be backwards compatible with the older console. Square Enix is yet to announce any release details for the long-awaited remake, although the first part, with any luck, might receive a launch date at E3 next month. How about you?

Scientists discover an underwater city full of gloomy octopuses

first_img By Erik StokstadSep. 13, 2017 , 5:02 PM Scientists discover an underwater city full of gloomy octopuses Octopuses are reclusive animals, and the gloomy octopus (Octopus tetricus) is no exception. During the day, it retreats into its den in the rocky reefs of Australia, which it often blocks with rocks. It comes out most often at night, to catch lobsters, crabs, and other creatures with its meter-long arms. But in 2012, researchers reported that the species is surprisingly social. Diving in Jervis Bay, Australia, the scientists documented as many as 16 gloomy octopuses all living in a large pile of discarded shells—dubbed Octopolis—mating and fighting, even during the daytime. Now, they have studied a second congregation a few hundred meters away—the slightly less mellifluous Octlantis. The structure, which hosts 23 dens, consists of three patches of rocks, each surrounded by mounds of shells. Video surveillance over 8 days revealed up to 15 octopuses that mated and fought there, the researchers report this month in Marine and Freshwater Behaviour and Physiology. The octopuses kicked each other out of dens, went on chases, and appeared to threaten each other by standing up and darkening their bodies. At one point, they didn’t even seem to notice a bottom-dwelling wobbegong shark sneaking up. The researchers suspect that limited den space might have led to the crowded conditions—and the dust-ups.last_img read more
