     New Anime Adventures codes October 2023

October 9, 2023: We checked for new Anime Adventures codes.

What are the new Anime Adventures codes? If you're starting out trying to defend your base, you will want to summon the most powerful heroes and villains based on the most popular anime of all time, such as One Piece, My Hero Academia, and Dragon Ball, to stop the evil forces from storming your base. But, of course, some are more powerful than others, so if you want to get the most out of the game's gacha system, you'll want tons of codes.

Anime Adventures is a tower defense anime game built inside Roblox, and you can earn gems to summon units by grinding through levels and completing daily missions. AA codes can help you get even more gems, which you can spend on getting the best units in the game. New codes are released with every update, so if you see the prompt for a new update, do check back to see if there are any that you've not redeemed yet. While you're here, you should know that we also keep lists of Blox Fruits codes, King Legacy codes, and All Star Tower Defense codes to get you more freebies.

Looking for a League of Legends tier list? Metas change, the LoL tier list will fluctuate, and it could be that your favorite champion might not be in a great place right now. While you can absolutely win games and climb the ranked ladder with nearly anyone in the lower ranks, the changes that come via champion and item balancing can tip the scales enough that some picks are almost mandatory, regardless of which rank you play in.

We've put together a few picks for each lane that have become especially overpowered recently in League of Legends. Whether it's due to a buff, kit change, or item change, these are safe picks if you're looking to climb the solo queue ranks in the free PC game. If you do want to play something other than what's on this list, keep these champions in mind for your ban, as they all have the potential to go on and dominate Summoner's Rift in one of the best MOBAs you can play right now.

In the nicest possible way, and with the greatest of respect, Remedy's comms director Thomas Puha would like people to stop fixating on frame-rate and resolution and get on with their bloody lives. Or at least, that's my summary of his thoughts following the recent announcement on Xitter that Alan Wake 2 will have a performance mode on PS5 and Xbox Series X, allowing consoleers for whom responsiveness is a priority to eke a higher frame-rate out of a game "built from the beginning as a 30fps experience focusing on visuals and ambiance."

Puha has subsequently been chatting to press about the creation of the mode and Alan Wake 2's visuals at large. In what has become a time-honoured ceremony for any AAA game developer a month or two before release, he took a moment to observe that focussing on frame-rate vs resolution is missing the wood for the trees. (The trees in question do take a toll on Alan Wake 2's performance, but we'll get to that further down the page.)

Activision Blizzard has No Current Plans to Put Diablo IV on Xbox Game Pass

Activision Blizzard announced through social media that the company currently has no plans to put Diablo IV or Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III on Xbox Game Pass. In a brief statement made on Twitter, the publisher discussed how they have been receiving numerous questions about putting upcoming and recently launched games up on Xbox Game Pass.

Activision Blizzard mentioned that while working towards regulatory approval for the Microsoft deal, they do not have plans to add these games to Game Pass. Once the deal has closed, they will be working closely with Xbox to bring games to players around the world. The company anticipates adding games from their catalog to Game Pass by next year.

You can see the full statement from Activision below:


Microsoft announced plans to acquire Activision Blizzard for $68.7 billion back in January 2022, and the acquisition included studios like King, Infinity Ward, Treyarch, and Toys for Bob. However, the two companies have had to deal with governmental investigations and injunctions by the United Kingdom's Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) and the United States Federal Trade Commission (FTC) over the past year. They are currently on track to finalize the acquisition on October 18, 2023.

Diablo IV is available for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC through Battle.net. The Steam version will be released on October 17, 2023. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III releases on November 10, 2023, for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC.

The Suika Watermelon Game Excels in Its Simplicity

I first heard about Suiko Game (Watermelon Game in English) because of streamers. I follow a bunch of them for news-related purposes, and they're all playing. I started with the free version, which you can play in your browser. I enjoyed it and the price for the official Switch version is right. (It's 240円 in the Japanese eShop, which is about $1.60.) Now that I've (unintentionally) spent about five hours playing, I get it. It's the simple nature and ability to go very right or very wrong in an instant that sells this gem. 

Suika Game's premise is simple. You drop foods from above into a box. If they overflow out of the space, you lose. Making ones of the same type match transforms them into the next type in the line. So cherries are the tiniest. Two cherries combine into a strawberry. Two grapes become an orange. Two oranges become an apple. You get the idea. The "best" one is the coveted watermelon. You get points for how many you manage to make and fill the space with before they hit the line at the top, overflowing and ending the game. However, as you don't know which fruits could show up next when you get to make a drop, it's impossible to really plan. You need to go with the flow.

Suika Game Watermelon

The thing about this matching game is the physics. Which, by the way, are far better in the Switch version. Dropping fruits cause them to roll, perhaps slightly bounce, and move. Shapes can get awkward. As bigger fruits appear when they combine, the action causes buckling, awkward spacing, and sudden inabilities to access ones you could before. One lucky move could cause a chain effect, Puyo Puyo-style. However, it could also doom you and undo some strategy you'd attempted to enact. 

However even if the worst happen, the brief nature of Suika Game and knowing that it might honestly not be your fault you failed makes the concept of replaying even more attractive. This is a short game. It's easy to pick up and learn. When I started first playing it, it was in a focused manner. However, sometimes I also play it before bed now to help settle down. It's soothing in its simplicity.

Suika Watermelon Game
Screenshot by Siliconera

The only downside is that the official version of Suika Game isn't available worldwide. (There are already copycats. They aren't the same.) The browser-based version can be played in any region. If you use a browser with an automatic translation option, it will even translate things. But even without that, there's no language barrier. Start the game. Drop different kinds of fruits adjacent to each other so they match. When the box fills up and the round ends, see the leaderboard of scores or retry. 

Suiko Game really can be a delight, even if it is occasionally infuriating when it goes awry, and the lure of maybe one day getting a watermelon is too strong. I haven't done it yet. My best scores only get to the 2,000s. But I'm okay if it takes a while. It's worth people's time.

Square Enix has been sharing screenshots comparing Final Fantasy VII, which was released on PlayStation back in 1997, to the 2024 remake Final Fantasy VII Rebirth. In their latest comparison, the developer showed the massive differences between the original Bottomswell battle and the updated version players will experience in Final Fantasy VII Rebirth.

In the screenshot of the original release of Final Fantasy VII, the Bottomswell boss is shown floating above the shore of Under Junon while fighting against Cloud, Tifa, and Yuffie. In the 1997 version, the battle is instigated when Bottomswell attacks a young girl named Priscilla, who is playing with her aquatic friend, Mr. Dolphin. In the screenshot from FFVII Rebirth, the boss looks terrifying as every slimy scale on its body is now presented with its detailed high-definition model. The side-by-side screenshots also show the contrast between the original's turn-based battle system and the real-time action combat featured in the modern remakes.

The comparison screenshots of the Bottomswell battle can be viewed below:

Square Enix Explains the Meaning Behind Final Fantasy VII Rebirth's Cover Art

Square Enix has provided fans with a detailed explanation of the meaning behind the cover artwork of Final Fantasy VII Rebirth. According to the developer, the artwork represents the "three worlds" that form the "axis" of the story in Final Fantasy VII Rebirth.

Square Enix doesn't go into further details about what these "three worlds" actually are, but it does explain what each character on the artwork is meant to represent. Creative Director Tetsuya Nomura is credited for creating the vibrant artwork that features Cloud Strife, Sephiroth, and Zack Fair.

The social media post also explains that Sephiroth is standing in the center of the artwork, as he was the instigator of events that occurred in the past. Cloud and Zack stand on opposite sides of him, representing their destinies being "torn apart" by the antagonist.

You can see the full post from Square Enix below:


In a second follow-up tweet, the developer also stated that Cloud stands under a sky with a greenish hue similar to the cover of Final Fantasy VII Remake, while Zack stands under a sky with a blue hue similar to the cover of Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion. The middle of the artwork is bathed in red while the sun rises behind Sephiroth, to evoke the image of fire and blood that "spreads over the world" Square Enix said.

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth will be at NYCC 2023 on October 14, 2023, with a panel featuring some of the lead voice actors of the upcoming game as they discuss their roles.

New Crisis Core FFVII Trivia Explains the SOLDIER Recruitment Process

Square Enix shared brand new trivia on the official Final Fantasy VII Remake social media account detailing information about how SOLDIERs get recruited during Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion. According to the developer, there are two main routes to recruit SOLDIERs for the Shinra Electric Power Company.

One pathway to being recruited into SOLDIER at Shinra is taking a public exam, which is the same test that Zack and Cloud took. The other pathway is a written exam that SOLDIER prospectives take. Even if a potential candidate can pass the written exam, what really matters is the physical fitness test. Anybody can become a SOLDIER as long as they have the physical and mental strength to withstand being exposed to Mako when injected.
