??? In the state of play ? There was nothing after intergrade. Which reveal do you mean ? I didn't see it.
Oh, First Soldier is a battle royale game on smartphone. Wait on smartphones ??
And Ever Crisis is...

Oh shit.
Take the original, keep the turn based, swap out the graphics and models and animations. Oh and also throw in all the other Compilation games because we fucking can. /dead
Suer pumped about Crisis Core (edit for emphasis : I'm SUPER FUCKING PUMPED about Crisis Core remake), glad I'll be able to play Before Crisis, I don't mind Dirge of Cerberus, and no idea what they're gonna do with Advent Children if it's just the movie or.....?????

... Uh. So EC is a remake of the original itself (and not "the remake" FF7R). Sounds like they're keeping the original, then the AC-BC-CC-DC, and finally the EC is the remake (or they're making the remake as FF7R and EC is the original or whatever). That.... Isn't that basically what that old weird rumor was that EC was always planned to be the more modern remake but they just couldn't pull it off back on PS2 era, and the timeline fuckery really was what was planned ?

The biggest QoL we are getting is the ability to further level up BS and SS (just call them FES+) with the same method used to level up collabs by combining memories for invitations.
Oh good, finally. I can throw a few attempts at Mai and Athena without worrying that it'll be worthless if I don't immediately get 8 copies of them.
Speaking of which, the new 3PG have an incentive compared to the billion special cards they both already have : unique effects. Damage reduction for Mai and heal for Athena. Still not worth it, and the other new cards aren't too interesting either : upgraded Kaya set with extra crit like the Akane set and extra damage reduction (okay that's not too bad but only if you reeeeeally need a lot of defense), and the Mai option card is only for a few seconds when tagging in, so hard pass.

PS5 update to FF7R, Final Fantasy 7 Intergrade with Yuffie episode, on a Wutai-related mission in Midgar with a new partner while Cloud is meeting Aerith in the church. ... Only on the PS5 version. They hid that last bit of info as long as they could in this showcase, fine print style, didn't they, obviously knowing that was what people wanted to know from the first second they showed Yuffie.
And the Dirge of Cerberus white hair guy ?
So it'll move the Wutai plot and the underground plot, okay.

Yuffie's triangle attack is throw, and her special moves include synergized art of war and synergized windstorm. Windstorm has her grab Sonon's staff, he spins around and launches her at the target, and her triangle attack then becomes retrieve. So they work in pair exclusively then.

I'd be fine with seeing random characters from different franchises that they want to smash together in a big scene like the Endgame battle if the multiverse is involved, or randomly going through the multiverse for a one-off joke, but I wouldn't be too much into any them playing a role relevant to the story.
The MCU has been doing specific storylines adapted to whatever was happening in the MCU, and the Disney+ series are used as transitions to avoid doing another movie on someone's origin story (Spectrum got hers in WandaVision and not in a movie) but prepare you for a movie with them. So making those non-Marvel franchises play a role in them would only serve to prepare for a new standalone movie for that franchise, which would kind of defeat the point of introducing the franchise to the MCU, it's just using the MCU as a backdoor to a standalone revival. Using the MCU's popularity to try and pump some air in a franchise that they don't care enough about to revive on its own.

edit - Variety says BH6 in MCU isn't a thing. Backing it up by pointing out Disney just finished a TV series on them but are already moving on to a new series on Baymax, and Marvel doesn't split a franchise with multiple contradicting shows (hello Agents of SHIELD).

I'll expect Kyo XI to get that, sure, but there really is no difference with a regular FES. This Athena and Mai could have been a regular FES as was expected by everyone, and they could have gotten this hero series later on.

Also, on a side note, don't expect any collab news for a while.  Barely a mention in the Korean stream.
It's weird, I could've sworn they said in the previous one that it was coming real soon ?

a fancier alternative to Boss Syndrome but for protagonists.
And nobody saw that coming lol.
I'm just curious about characters that are already op like Mr Karate. Will they just stay there a FES being as strong as the boss syndrome and the new one ? Goenitz and Lady Zero are already close enough to the Boss syndromes, I don't know how far the powercreep can go.
Happy about the buffed chars and other than that I'm just waiting for epic quest 2 and a 3PG for Igniz.
Saw the two new units... Super lame. Especially the new cards. I'll stick to the existing 3PG for both of them. ... They don't even look like they got that much of a buff compared to the two Boss syndromes, what even is the point. Is just for the special signature core effect ? It keeps getting lamer.

Oh, I didn't realize that both v skills were a different type of taunt (canceling normals while standing or canceling specials even in the air to skip your recovery landing and start over a new combo), I thought something was missing.

Beni & Iori has relatively updated looks while Kyo and Chizuru look as if they're from KOF'96.
Kyo without his school uniform is still a big change from 96. The biker jacket is from 99 (the striker-only form, not the white jacket).
Either of these designs is way better than the K-pop hair from XIV that was a big departure from his recognizable hairstyle. Looking skinny as a stick didn't help. Now it looks like everyone is getting super buff with this art style, it's not perfect but I'll live with it better than the XIV style (I just hope the Ikari Warriors won't be back to the giant bubbling meat blobs from XII-XIII).

Street Fighter V has turned me away from heavy redesigns of iconic characters lol
But SFV also has classic costumes for everyone. And KoF is already bringing new designs for Kyo, Iori, Beni, and even Joe gets a new pair of shorts. (Kyo is much closer to his classic design than the XIV version, sure, but it's still a way off from the school uniform)
(alright, Iori getting a new velvet jacket is not as jarring as Gouki becoming a lion for some fucking reason, but the nostalgia costumes are there in SFV)

The other day I watched the similar comparison for Kyo XV next to Kyo XIV. Absolutely identical. The fresh coat of paint is real nice, it's good to get a graphic design that's watchable, but clearly we already know the entire moveset and game plan of any character that will appear, so someone wake me up when there's something we haven't already seen in a previous game. I'll be right next to the pieces of my expectations for this revival game.

So Seiken Densetsu 3 4 finally, maybe that T-RPG with no name and no design that tried to pretend for a hot second that it was Zelda x Fire Emblem inspired, and Skyward Sword HD. That's all I'm taking from this. Not that I was expecting anything for BotW2, but it's a major letdown.
Oh yeah wait, and the AoC DLC list that went by in half a second that I couldn't catch the content of (except the obvious Purah and Robbie and a new Link weapon + costume).
edit - found the AoC DLC list, one wave in June and another in November, each with an "expanded roster" entry. And a "added weapon types", if that means new weapon styles for existing characters that'll be great. Really, a whole year for the first season pass ?

A direct barely 4 days before Zelda's anniversary, uh.
Come on Nintendo. Do it. I'm okay with redoing Skyward Sword, just don't skip TP.
And the AoC DLC too.

He just hides an arm in his clothes to give his opponent a fair chance. That's why he switches arms when he switches sides. Now it looks like he's holding a turtle for the same effect, he'll only use the arm that's facing forward.
Yeah, i didn't have my hopes up either way...
Welp, that would be a bit underwhelming if it was the sole selling point of the premium pass, but it ain't it, i think this is okay... i guess?
Premium pass as in the season pass ? You mean beside Dan, Rose, Oro, and Akira ?

Oh nice, that Real Bout 2 super is back (basically). I guess it's faster than the Bakuretsu Hurricane Tiger Kakato.

edit - oh, he had it in XIV. So again, no change, copy-paste everything from XIV, uh. That's not going well.
