Audio bug fixed in Switch and Xbox One ports

On Friday patch 1.01 was released for Final Fantasy VII on Nintendo Switch and Xbox One, fixing a long running audio bug. While not game breaking, the bug caused the overworld music to restart after every encounter. This meant you never heard anything beyond the first few seconds of many iconic songs, including the main theme on the world map, unless you stood completely still.

Other minor bugs were fixed in the patch, including one where a black screen would appear when transitioning between cutscenes and gameplay.

The music bug was introduced to the game in the 2015 iOS version, which was subsequently released on Android and PS4 (the 2012 PC version does not seem to have this issue). None of these versions have been patched, which makes the fix for Switch and Xbox One even more surprising after all these years.

The exact same bug also exists in all ports of Final Fantasy IX.

New Remake teaser shown on Sony's State of Play

Square Enix has broken their silence on the Final Fantasy VII Remake project on Sony's second State of Play stream. On the stream they showed a new teaser trailer for the game which you can watch on YouTube. Over on the PlayStation Blog Producer Yoshinori Kitase promised more information coming in June, which will most likely be at E3.

Announced in 2015, the Remake was originally going to be developed by external studio CyberConnect2 and would be released in multiple parts. Square has since moved development entirely in-house, however many outlets including RPG Site have reported that they still plan to release the game "as partitioned titles".

Final Fantasy VII Remake not coming soon

If you were hoping Final Fantasy VII Remake would be coming out soon, I’m sad to say you will be disappointed. At the companies financial briefing Square Enix President Yosuke Matsuda revealed that both Final Fantasy VII and Kingdom Hearts 3 are currently slated for release in “fiscal year 2018 and beyond”.

It has also been revealed that Square Enix is “urgently recruiting” for Final Fantasy VII’s internal development team. It was originally reported back in 2015 that Square would be outsourcing much of the game’s production to external company CyberConnect2, however it seems that plan has recently changed.

Naoki Hamaguchi, who previously worked on Mobius Final Fantasy, has reportedly taken a new role on the Final Fantasy VII project. He attributes the move to internal development to “improving quality” and maintaining a “stable schedule”. You can read the full translation on Nova Crystallis.

An Announcement

I have some news: as of today, I am leaving the staff here at the Citadel. CloudANDTidus will take over news and hosting duties full-time, and there will be one Admin short on the Forums from now on as well. This site means a lot to me, but it is time for me to move on, mainly for some of the same reasons I posted when I shut down back in February.

CloudANDTidus will keep you all posted on the server/hosting switchover, as well as other changes he has planned. In the meantime, if you'd like to keep in touch, my contact info, social media and gaming accounts, etc. are listed here.

Well, everyone... take care of yourselves!

Quick Little Site Update

In my role as site host, I was doing some server-side maintenance on the Citadel today and noticed that several years' worth of spam had accumulated on the theory submission page for The Yellow Orb.

That page has now been restored to the time when the last legitimate comments were probably made. From what I can tell, all of the comments made after that were spam, and I did not feel like sifting through hundreds of later posts to find any non-spammy ones. Also, to combat future spam (and therefore, future space-hogging backups made by the commenting system) I have decided to close the page to new comments altogether. Comments may open again sometime in the future, though I can't say when.

My maintenance work is ongoing at this time, so if you find anything else that seems off, please let me know immediately. Thank you!

Remake high-res key visual

Just a small update today. I've uploaded a 1924x1080 version of the Final Fantasy VII Remake key visual that Square Enix unveiled at the Final Fantasy 30th Anniversary event in January.

It makes a good wallpaper.
