It's another episode and it's another huge update about the Final Fantasy 7 Remake!
Yoshinori Kitase and Tetsuya Nomura have been speaking to Japanese media about what to expect from Intergrade, with some loose talks about Part Two, and there's also new information about First Soldier, Ever Crisis and... Forspoken (although that's not Final Fantasy-related!)
Numerous games have gone down the path of creating a prequel and that's the main discussion for today's episode... would it be worth Square Enix making a full on Kingdom Hearts 0?
If so, what would the story look like and would it be a full-game or just a segment of another game?
After months of nothing, Square Enix decided to announce a load of news and games related to the Final Fantasy 7 Remake... all on the same day!
Throughout this episode, we're discussing Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade, Final Fantasy 7: The First Solider and Final Fantasy 7: Ever Crisis... it's going to be a hell of a ride!
After many, many years, development on the Kingdom Hearts mobile game will be ceasing as both games are now complete!
Nomura revealed the news in an open letter, where he stated that once both teams had wrapped up their current workloads they would be merged with the rest of the Kingdom Hearts team. An offline version of the game will then be made available for fans to enjoy.
Based on some new comments from Naoki Yoshida, it feels like Square Enix will be taking a more measured approach with the marketing of Final Fantasy XVI.
Throughout this episode, we discuss what this means for the next 6-12 months and why we're pleased with the comments Yoshida has made.

There's also a brief run-down of some recent Final Fantasy news, specifically relating to Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker, the next expansion.
It's surreal to think it's already been two years since the release of Kingdom Hearts 3, but we thought it'd be a great time to reminisce!
We've also got some new relating to a Kingdom Hearts novel that's being released and addressing some fan concerns about burnout with the franchise.
It's the 20th anniversary of Final Fantasy X and we felt it would be prudent to discuss why we hold the game with such reverence.
It leads to some interesting discussions around the specific elements that we feel make Final Fantasy X such a special experience and we hope you enjoy!
With EA's exclusivity deal now ended, does that open for the door for Star Wars characters to start appearing within the Kingdom Hearts universe?
That's the main topic of this episode, but there's also room to talk about Melody of Memory, its impact and some of the story elements that are a bit more nuanced.
The year has only just begun and there's already Final Fantasy 7 Remake speculation!
Throughout this episode, we run-through the latest Final Fantasy trademarks, discuss our views on Final Fantasy XVI and run-through the various games we're excited to see and play throughout the year!
