Capping off two months of intense, pan-India esports action, Sahil ‘Micro’ Viradia has come out on top as India’s best Dota 2 player, retaining his crown at the Red Bull R1V1R Runes 2019 National Finals.

Viradia, representing Global Esports, defeated Rohan ‘Devoid’ Prattipati 3-1 in a tense battle at Hyderabad International Convention Centre on Saturday to become champion for the second year running. The victory earns Viradia an all-expenses paid trip for a unique, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet members of OG, the current, two-time winners of The International, which is the world’s most prestigious esports competition.

“It has been a swift journey for me, since I have the practice. I think my performance speaks for itself. I look forward to meeting team OG soon,” said an ecstatic Sahil ‘Micro’ Viradia following his win, where he was awarded the Red Bull R1V1R Runes 2019 trophy by Red Bull esports athlete Ankit ‘Venom’ Panth.

“It was an exciting weekend of action and it was a battle until the very end,” said Panth.

The R1V1R Runes 2019 journey in India began with online and offline qualifiers across 20 cities. The finalists descended upon Hyderabad, where the country’s top Dota 2 players battled it out at the Indiajoy digital entertainment festival on Friday and Saturday.

“In recent years, esports has grown multifold in India and R1V1R Runes season 2 has experienced the highest levels of enthusiasm from participants. We will continue to shine the limelight on every gaming enthusiast keen to showcase their skills.” said Savio Almeida, GM – Marketing, TP-Link India.

With shorter, more action-packed matches, Red Bull R1v1r Runes brings all the right ingredients for competitions that are more intense for players and entertaining for spectators.

In 2019, the Red Bull R1v1r Runes tournaments are being hosted by seven countries: India, Croatia, Germany, Philippines, Russia, Ukraine and the UK.

Final Fantasy VII Remake New Screenshots and Details Revealed

Square Enix has revealed more news and screenshots for Final Fantasy VII Remake, detailing Cloud abilities, Chocobo and Moogle summoning and information about the battle system. Read more in detail below:

The Turks

The Investigation Sector of the General Affairs Department of the Shinra Electric Power Company. A small, elite organization that carries out special operations, the Turks operate behind the scenes and handle everything from scouting out SOLDIER candidates to protecting VIPs, intelligence activities, and even assassination.

■ Avalanche

An anti-Shinra group acting to protect the planet. Mako is the life energy of the planet, and Avalanche alleges that Shinra Company is draining the planet’s lifespan. There are currently several factions within Avalanche, and the group that oversees Midgar, which consists of Barret and company, is a dynamic one that does not hesitate to use force.

■ Battle System: Classic Mode

Classic Mode can be activated by selecting “Classic” from the difficulty menu. In Classic Mode, party members will act automatically, with the ATB gauge filling up as they do so. In this mode, the player only needs to select which abilities, magic, and items they will use their ATB charges for. This brings the feel of the gameplay closer to the menu-based battles from the original Final Fantasy VII but with the amazing immersive graphics of the remake. It is also possible to revert to direct control at any time during Classic Mode by pushing buttons on the controller.

■ Battle System: Cloud

Cloud can “Attack” with his sword at close range with the Square button and build up combos by repeatedly pressing Square. By holding Square, Cloud can unleash a radial attack.

Unique Ability

The Triangle button activates each character’s unique ability. Cloud’s unique ability is to switch between different fighting styles. He can switch between “Operator Mode” which has a good balance between attack and defense, and “Punisher Mode” which is geared heavily towards offense. In Punisher Mode, Cloud’s movement speed is reduced, but his basic square button attacks are upgraded to even mightier blows.

■ Summons

While equipping Summon Materia, you will be able to summon a powerful ally once the special summon gauge fills up. Summons will fight alongside you automatically on the battlefield, but you can also use your own ATB charges to have them perform special abilities. Just before they leave the fight, your ally will unleash a powerful special move!

Experience Launches Crowdfunding Campaign For Shibito Magire

Experience has launched the Campfire crowdfunding campaign for Tsubito Magire, the tentatively titled third entry in its Spirit Hunter series, which is planned for release on PlayStation 4 and Switch in summer 2021 in Japan. It is seeking 15 million yen (approx. $137,775 USD) in funding.

Here is an overview of the story and systems, via the Campfire page:

Story

In the suburbs of Tokyo’s H City is a private institution called “Konoehara Academy,” which was established over 100 years ago.

There were rumors that every 10 years, the dead would creep into the academy and spread a curse.

Around the end of summer, some students of the academy died an inexplicable death in the academy garden…

While a police investigation was unable to confirm the nature of the incident, many rumors spread among the students regarding their tragic death, such as “it was the work of the dead” and “they were summoned by spirits.”

In order to regain a sense of composure within the academy, the chairman requested an investigation from the Kujou house, which has been involved in rituals since ancient times.

A strange and sullen middle-aged man able to “examine” the supernatural, the head of the Kujou house begins an undercover investigation as a temporary teacher in order to determine the truth of the rumors.

And to experience the terrible curse from the dead that has crept into the academy…

Game Systems

  • Tag Salvage – In Tsubito Magire, you will conduct your investigation accompanied by a partner. Depending on the partner you choose, the information and items you can obtain, as well as the places you can investigate, will change. (RPG elements such as protagonist parameter changes are also included.)
  • Suspensive Act – Choices that occur when you are driven into a corner. Your chances of success depend on your partner, the items available to you, and the actions you have taken. Whether you safely overcome the situation and turn things around depends on you.
