Mitsuoka Motors, makers of the fabled Orochi, often maligned as the World’s Ugliest Car, has debuted a special edition of the car for Devilman Crybaby. The partnership isn’t exactly out of left-field as one of the main characters of the series drives, an Orochi, but the interesting thing here is that the Orochi has been out of production since 2014. To combat that, Mitsuoka took a pre-owned model of the car and updated it as a one-off display item.

Bad news for fans looking forward to the 2018 release of Shenmue III. Deep Silver, the publisher for Shenmue III, has provided an updated release window for the game, and confirmed that rather than appearing later this year, it will now launch in 2019.
The highly anticipated sequel is being delayed to further polish the game, and allow for the best experience to be brought to players. Early trailers for the game have maligned its rigid facial animations, and dated graphics, so perhaps this extra time is being used to remedy those issues?
Final Fantasy VII fans can breathe a small sigh of relief, as Final Fantasy VII Remake producer Yoshinori Kitase confirmed in a recent interview that legendary composer Nobuo Uematsu is in fact working on the upcoming remake. It’s been a while since we’ve heard any updates on the remake, but we should expect to hear something this year at Square Enix’s E3 panel.
I’ve worked on numerous titles with Uematsu-san, and while I’m currently working on the production of Final Fantasy VII Remake, it’s actually been since Final Fantasy X that I directly worked with Uematsu-san. So when I first went to ask Uematsu-san to come work on the music for the remake, I thought he would give me the cold shoulder since he had already left Square Enix and found success.
