Final Fantasy VII

Last month Square Enix has filed trademarks for "Ever Crisis", "The First Soldier" and the Shinra Electric Power Company logo. The three trademarks recently made public.

All three trademarks are related to the Final Fantasy VII series:

  • "Ever Crisis" sounds like next entry in the Compilation of Final Fantasy VII subseries with games like Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII and Dirge of Cerberus: Final Fantasy VII and the film Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children.
  • "The First Soldier" seems to be a reference to Sephiroth.
  • Shinra Electric Power Company is the megacorporation headquartered in the city of Midgar.

Or are these titles related with part two of Final Fantasy VII Remake which is currently in development?

Update 21-01-2021: Square Enix has also filed trademarks for "Ever Crisis" in Canada and Europe and the Shinra Electric Power Company logo in Europe.

A new secret cheat code has been discovered in NieR: Automata that allows you to skip the entire game to the last ending after beating the first boss. It appears to be the "last NieR: Automata secret" which NieR: Automata director Yoko Taro said that players have yet to discover back in March 2018 in Famitsu magazine.

The secret has been found by video game modder Lance McDonald by reverse engineering the engine of the game. After the cheat code has been entered Chapter Select, Debug Mode, the Debug Room, and the Trophy Shop, as well as a few other items will be unlocked.

After Lance McDonald tweeted about his discovery, Yoko Taro confirmed that after 3 years and 10 months the final secret of the game has been found. Lance McDonald released a video explaining how the secret can be activated. Please note that this video contains spoilers.

NieR: Automata is the sequel to NieR and has been released in 2017 on PlayStation 4 and PC. In 2018 the game was ported to Xbox One.
