New gameplay from the upcoming Star Wars Jedi: Survivor seems to reveal that, unlike in the first game, the sequel will finally let Jedi Cal Kestis slice up stormtroopers and other human enemies. And that's a good thing, as this much-wanted change makes lightsabers feel powerful and deadly again.

After seeing Honkai: Star Rail for a few minutes during a live media preview, I mostly liked what I saw. HoYoverse's "space fantasy" RPG doesn't reinvent turn-based combat, but the performance was smooth. The fighting animations were among some of the best I've seen out of anime games in recent years. The combat's…

I love the thrill of a close Overwatch 2 match as much as the next person, but an Overwatch 2 bug that suddenly throws you onto the enemy team midway through the action is a slightly bizarre twist on balancing that nonetheless gives me a warm nostalgia for the heady days of Team Fortress 2. Blizzard's competitive multiplayer game makes plenty of tweaks and improvements for Overwatch 2 season 3, but this seemingly unintentional issue is as bizarre as it is hilarious.

It's almost time for the Diablo 3 season 28 start date, giving fans plenty to keep them busy in one of the best RPG games on PC. While Diablo 3 is now over a decade old (don't think about that too much, or you'll turn to dust faster than an unfortunately placed NPC in a firestorm), there's plenty of reason to come back to the Blizzard game and stretch your loot-gathering legs as we prepare for the Diablo 4 release date to arrive.

The official FFVII Remake Twitter account shared more details about Yuffie's redesign from Episode Intermission. Square Enix updated Yuffie's original design to incorporate some more realistic details, while maintaining her design as a modern ninja and the Japanese style of her original design. The company shared that, while the rest of the cloth physics in her model run in real-time, Yuffie's leg warmers are individually adjusted so they don't fall off.
While her redesign was kept very close to the original, some details changed or were adjusted to bring her to life in a more modern setting. Particularly, her right arm sports a glove that closely resembles a piece of Japanese armor, compared to her original design which involved wearing a glove with metallic protectors.
You can check out Yuffie's FFVII Remake Intergrade design in more detail in the gallery below.

Square Enix recently shared more details about Yuffie's moogle cape, which the developers recreated in real-life and later scanned to model and add into the game.
Final Fantasy VII Remake is immediately available for the PS4, PS5, and PC. The PS5 and PC versions of the game are the FFVII Remake Intergrade version, which include Episode Intermission, a story parallel to the events in the main game starring Yuffie as its main character.

The Nintendo of America Twitter account shared a reminder that the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS eShop will soon no longer be available. Nintendo will discontinue both online storefronts on March 27, 2023. Those with money still on their accounts will be able to merge the leftover balance with their Nintendo Switch account until March 2024.
News of this decision first came out in February 2022. Once the stores close down, players will no longer be able to purchase new games or download free demos. As for games you already own, you can still re-download them so long as you have the license. This goes for DLC as well. The My Memories website for the 3DS and Wii U is still open as well, though you will need to have a Nintendo account to access it.
Closing down eShops is a natural part of a console with online access. The PlayStation Store for the PS3 and PS Vita also closed down in Summer 2021. In all of these cases, it simply means that you will no longer be able to buy older games. Players will still have access to games in their digital library.
The Wii U and Nintendo 3DS eShop will each close on March 27, 2023. Players with games they want to purchase should buy them before that date so that they can access them in the future.

Square Enix is currently gearing up for its US Final Fantasy XIV Fan Festival in Las Vegas, Nevada. Tickets for the event will be limited and available only through a lottery system.

The new merchandise lineup is called "Nya! Nya Nya! Nyaoha!" in Japanese.
Some of the items included in the new lineup are useful daily life items, like dishes, hoodies, a mat, keychains, and even matcha tea. You can check out the Pokemon merchandise based on Sprigatito in the gallery below, as well as the hat on a cat.

The next film in the Psycho-Pass series is arriving in a matter of months. Psycho-Pass: Providence has a premiere date in Japan, as well as its first trailer. The latest announcement from the Psycho-Pass production committee dates the film's premiere for May 12, 2023.
Created in part to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the series, Psycho-Pass: Providence will involve members of the original cast, particularly protagonists Akane Tsunemori and Shinya Kogami. Voice actors Kana Hanazawa and Tomokazu Seki will reprise their roles as Tsunemori and Kogami.
The movie also bears the tagline "The End of Justice," where the Japanese characters for "Justice" are read as "System."
Check out the trailer below.
The trailer focuses on dialog and action by both Tsunemori and Kogami. The pair were once linked in the first season of Psycho-Pass, as Tsunemori was an Inspector, placed in charge of Kogami, an Enforcer. Under the show's Sibyl System, people are sorted by the "Hues" of their Psycho Pass, and some people are classified as "Latent Criminals" due to their psychological state. Latent Criminals are locked up and made to prop up the Sibyl System as Enforcers, who use their supposed similarity to the criminal mindset to help the police find and apprehend (or execute) actual criminals.
The Psycho-Pass: Providence trailer features lines from Tsunemori and Kogami. Tsunemori asks if Kogami was "allowed to return to Japan, so that he could fight fire with fire." Kogami says that he's just doing what he has to do, and doesn't regret it. Tsunemori vows to stop Kogami, if he does plan to "set off another inferno." Saiga says that there are many facets to "Truth" and "Justice", and that there are things "you can't understand without seeing them from above." Kogami says that "Even then, I believe that you'll try to do the right thing."
The band Egoist also announced that the single for its song "Party" will release on May 10, 2023. "Party" is the ending theme for the film. Composer ryo of supercell also handled the lyrics, composition, and arrangement of the song. The band previewed the single's artwork, which was created by artist redjuice (who also created character designs for Guilty Crown, Beatless, and the upcoming series Ayaka).
Psycho-Pass: Providence premieres in Japan on May 12, 2023. The first two seasons of the show are available to watch on services like Crunchyroll and Netflix, while the third season is licensed by Amazon Prime Video.
