Axe of the Blood God 91: Horizon Zero Dawn, and What's Going On with the Final Fantasy VII Remake?

Kat and Nadia jaw about the Final Fantasy VII remake as well as Horizon Zero Dawn, BioWare's new IP, the Switch, and of course, Persona 4 Golden.

Axe of the Blood God is our weekly RPG podcast hosted by Kat Bailey. You can find the show notes for previous episodes here.

In this week's episode of Axe of the Blood God (download link here), we talk about the long, long wait for the Final Fantasy VII remake, as well as BioWare's new IP, and Kat's hands-on time with the Nintendo Switch, Horizon Zero Dawn, and the Zelda Escape Room experience.

Kat and Nadia wonder: Will we ever see the Final Fantasy VII remake? Possibly. Possibly in our children's time, or their children's time. For now, there's tons of other RPG topics to gab about. Nadia makes progress in Persona 4 Golden, Kat talks about her time with the Switch, Horizon Zero Dawn, and the Zelda Escape Room experience.

Finally: Which game will Kat take with her on vacation? Persona 3 Portable, or Chrono Trigger? Find out!
