As one of the most beloved games of all time, it’s easy to see why the anticipation for the upcoming remake of Final Fantasy VII is so high. Still, given Square Enix’s track record and the fact that we really haven’t seen much since the game’s announcement back in June 2015, the assumption has been that the remake — which will be released in an episodic format — is still a long way off. However, a new rumor claims that the game, or at least the first chapter, could be out by the end of 2017.
Despite the Wii U being dead in the water for the whole year, Nintendo had a pretty fantastic 2016, as they not only enjoyed new successes in the mobile gaming space, but also released the highly coveted NES Classic, a miniature edition of the Nintendo Entertainment System packaged with 30 of the console’s best games. Clearly, there is a healthy market for retro gaming products, especially when Nintendo’s name is involved, which means that we should be open to the possibility that Nintendo will release “Classic” editions of their other consoles. We’ve already taken a look at which games Nintendo should include if they were to release a mini Super Nintendo and now we’ve done the same for that system’s successor, the Nintendo 64.

2016 is officially over, so it’s time to turn our sights to 2017 and see what kind of gaming surprises may or may not be in store for us. This year is packed with some pretty big games, with titles such as Mass Effect: Andromeda, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and Red Dead Redemption 2 already assumed to be game of the year candidates, despite not knowing all that much about any of them — and in Red Dead’s case, not even knowing whether or not it will even be released this year!
It looks like Samsung wants to make a serious dent in the PC gaming market.
It’s exciting to think that we’re only a couple of months away from being able to get our hands on the Nintendo Switch, the successor to the disappointing Wii U. With many questions still remaining regarding the console itself, including pricing, available games at launch, and even the detachable screen’s battery life, Nintendo has organized a big presentation on Jan. 12th in Tokyo that will provide answers to all of these questions. Still, we can’t help but think that Nintendo will have a few more surprises in store for they much-hyped event, as it’s not unreasonable to say that their future as a console manufacturer hinges on the Switch’s success or failure. Here are a few predictions I have for what will go down at the presentation.
