There was also a lot of cooking in the rumor mill. There is a certain amount of this in data mining Final Fantasy IX Remake popped up. The list also includes speculative titles, but some games have actually been announced since then. So who knows, maybe there’s something in it?

In addition to the growing Silent Hill project at Bloober Team, Kojima Productions is also planning a corresponding development, funded by Sony.

Which brings us to the new reviews of JPGAMES. First the Otome Olympia Soirée (Switch) (according to the test report) an elaborate game world and a mature approach. Of course you can also choose a partner. On the other hand, we have a light workout KNOCKOUT HOME Fitness (switch) (to the test report).
