Fans can experience the story of Tidus and Yuna once again, as Final Fantasy X and its sequel are being given a touch of polish and released as a double pack.
Switch owners can purchase the digital or physical edition - the latter coming with a reversible sleeve featuring artwork of the game's protagonists. For Xbox players it's digital only.
There's even more remasters planned. Final Fantasy XII The Zodiac Age is set to release on Xbox One and Switch at the end of April. Expect a "reconstructed battle design and a revamped job system" alongside the standard visual/audio overhaul.
Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition is due to launch sometime in 2019 on PS4 and Switch, complete with an all new online multiplayer mode for co-op journeys for up to four players and new areas inside of dungeons.

The Game Bakers have rolled out a free update for their boss rush title, Furi, across all platforms.
One of the most notable new additions is Invincible Mode, which lets players skip a particularly tough boss fight or repeat a certain phase of an encounter to practice it. As the name suggests, you can also become immune to damage.
The mode is targeted at those who want to practice fights before attempting speed runs or players that want to better experience the game’s atmospheric setting and narrative.
“We’ve been listening to Furi’s community about the features and improvements that they were hoping for and we have been releasing some of those over the months in our Steam version,” said Audrey Leprince, co-founder of The Game Bakers.
“With the Freedom Update we’re happy to be able to share them with players regardless of the platform they play on.”
To celebrate the update’s launch, Furi is currently discounted by up to 70% on Switch, Xbox One and PC.

The game supports drop in/drop out co-op for up to four players, including local split-screen action for you and a friend, with the experience scaled to each player. Loot will be instanced individually, with rewards that are “yours alone.”
Fans of the series will be glad to hear there’s no shortage of over-the-top weapons available, including rifles that spawn volcanoes and guns that chase enemies whilst hurling insults.
Head on over to the official website to pre-order and take a look at the special editions on offer.

Borderlands 3 is out 13 September on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.

Daedalic Entertainment are working with Middle-Earth Enterprises on a new Lord of the Rings game centred around Gollum.
"When you look at our history with storytelling games, it was obvious that we needed to do something where the protagonist has a conflict going on," said Fichtelmann.
"This is also something you'll play in the game. You'll come to decisions you have to make, and you'll have the two voices talking to you. He may change his mind, and this is a clue about how it will play."
As Warner Bros. own the film rights, Andy Serkis won't be reprising his role as the pint-sized pest. This Gollum could be very different, as the developers are "telling his story before we learn about what happens to him in the books. So it's definitely new content that we'll see."

The latest update for Fallout 76 is now live, bringing a new, more competitive way to play with fewer PvP restrictions, a permanent XP bonus, scoreboards and weekly challenges.
You'll also be awarded double the amount of caps for each dweller vanquished and they'll drop all of their junk (which is more valuable than it sounds in the post-apocalyptic world of Fallout), along with a random amount of aid items.
Respawns are limited to Train Stations, your C.A.M.P. and Vault 76. Fast travel can be used to get around but is also limited to these areas and any Workshops you own.
Weekly challenges offer legendary rewards and the first one unlocks Crushing Blow, an M79 Grenade Launcher which inflicts double damage to targets at full health and an extra +50% limb damage.
A big change to Adventure Mode has also been ushered in, eliminating "slap damage" by reducing damage from non-hostile players to zero. There are a few caveats, however. If pacifist mode is disabled and you return fire against another player, you will become hostile and take full damage from their attacks. If your Workshop is contested, or you attempt to claim another player's Workshop, you will once again become hostile. Go easy on that trigger finger, cowboy.
Check out Inside the Vault for an in-depth look at the new systems in play and upcoming weekly challenges.

Following Sony’s first ever State of Play stream earlier in the week, Microsoft have debuted their own Nindie Showcase-like program promoting a host of new indie titles coming to Xbox One.
Blazing Chrome, developed by JoyMasher and published by The Arcade Crew, makes an appearance towards the end of the show, offering up plenty of Contra-esque run-and-gun action.
Our personal pick has to be the short but sweet look at Void Bastards, a strategy-shooter featuring comicbook-inspired visuals. It’s developed by Blue Manchu, whose team includes a former BioShock and System Shock 2 developer.
