Cloud to Join the Super Smash Bros. Roster
The surprise announcement at the end of today's Nintendo Direct broadcast was something special indeed: Cloud Strife is coming to Super Smash Bros. for 3DS/WiiU. The trailer included scenes of Cloud, in both his original game and Advent Children outfits, fighting the likes of Mario, Kirby, Pit, and Sonic, and also showed off a Midgar-themed stage filled with summons, and Omnislash repurposed into what we presume is a Final Smash attack.
To see the announcement trailer, go here. There is not yet a release date for this DLC (nor any word on whether or not Cloud will get an amiibo figure), but as usual, we will keep you all posted.
Updated for standalone trailer link; thanks, Clidus!

Nobuo Uematsu is Not Working on the Remake
In a streamed video interview with French gaming site Jeuxvideo.com, part of which is still available at Twitch, composer Nobuo Uematsu said that he is "not at all" working on the FFVII Remake.
Uematsu, of course, wrote the music for all of the pre-PS2 main series Final Fantasies, including FFVII. Him not returning to contribute to the remake project is disappointing, but we've yet to see what it means for the game's music. Presumably, the original game's score will be used, but now we know that unless something changes, it won't be Uematsu overseeing any new arrangements and/or recordings that will likely come about.
