Game of Thrones returned tonight for its seventh season, kicking off with the debut episode “Dragonstone.” We have a full rundown of the episode here. You're probably already thinking about Episode 2, “Stormborn,” and now the first trailer for it has landed.
Obviously this trailer has lots of spoilers about what's happening in Westeros, so maybe don't watch this if you are not caught up. “Stormborn” airs on Sunday, July 23.
For even more on the first episode of the new Game of Thrones season, go to Entertainment Weekly to see what Arya actress Maisie Williams had to say about what her character did in the premiere.
In other Game of Thrones news, some of the series regulars have spoken out against online leaks.
There are seven episodes in this season, while the eighth and final season will have just six–though they could be longer than usual. Though Game of Thrones is coming to an end, there are pilots for as many as five spinoffs in the works.

Directing Final Fantasy 7 Remake And Kingdom Hearts 3 Together Made Life Easier For Nomura

Kingdom Hearts 3 and the Final Fantasy 7 remake are two of the mostly eagerly anticipated games in development right now, and they’re being directed by the same man: Square Enix's Tetsuya Nomura, who has previously worked extensively on both franchises. During a group interview at Disney's D23 expo, he explained how the two new games have proved the perfect complements to one another for him as director.
“I don’t really feel any sort of hurdles or difficulty because the two titles are so different,” he said. “It actually works to my advantage because [they’re] so different. If both titles seem to have a sort of similar vein, both titles may start to look the same. So with the two being different, if there’s one thing that I could not do in one title, I might be able to do it in the other. It works out for me in that way.”
He added that the biggest challenge is simply how busy he is. “For example, we were making preparations to come here to D23 for Kingdom Hearts, and while we..

Kingdom Hearts 3 Director Tetsuya Nomura Explains What Took So Long

Kingdom Hearts 3 has been a long time coming, and despite the series’ many spin-offs, remakes and re-releases, fans are hungry for another adventure with Sora and friends. It’s been 12 years since Kingdom Hearts 2 came out on PS2, and in a recent group interview at Disney’s D23 expo, game director Tetsuya Nomura explained what’s taken so long.
“A lot of people have been mentioning and making it sound like ‘Oh, Nomura’s taking too much time,’ and it hurts,“ Nomura said, through a translator. He explained that the decision was made above his head to switch development to Unreal Engine 4 after about a year of development, which caused extensive delays. In addition, certain timing and resources challenges within Square Enix had an effect.
“There was a decision made to change to an external [engine]…Unreal Engine 4,” he said. “So we switched over to that. Unfortunately there was a bit of time that needed to be rewinded and started over. So there was a bit of a setback there, but it was a ..

Game Of Thrones: The Biggest Moments From Season 7, Episode 1 [SPOILERS]

Game of Thrones is back for Season 7 and started off with a bang this week. The season opener–titled “Dragonstone”–offered a lot of insight into where this year's stories and characters will be headed. We'll be taking a look at one big moment from this week's episode.
Warning: Spoilers are coming.
Right off the bat, the audience was treated to a jaw-dropping moment, involving House Frey. Walder Frey sat in front of his men, enjoying a large banquet in celebration of all their accomplishments. His men were handed wine for a toast, the finest wine. However, Walder does not drink the wine, while his men guzzle it down. Walder recounts the Red Wedding and makes mention that they did not kill all of the Starks, and that was their mistake. “Leave one wolf alive and the sheep are never safe,” he states.
All of the soldiers drop dead, from poison, and Walder removes his face to reveal it was Arya Stark all along. She turns to the young girl next to her and says, “When people a..

Game Of Thrones Actors Speak Out Against Online Leaks

Basically every big show or movie with a passionate fanbase has to deal with leaks, and Game of Thrones is of course no different. The Season 7 premiere is airing tonight, and before now, there were leaks and reports about plot points for the penultimate season. Now, some of the show's cast has spoken out against online leaks.
“I get so angry about it like we all do,” Kit Harington, who plays Jon Snow, told Entertainment Weekly. “There's nothing you can do about it. People for some reason want to spoil things for other people and, hopefully, most people don't look at the stuff. For those who do, it's so easy to slip up and see something you don't want to see.”
Littlefinger actor Aiden Gillen said leaks are especially unfortunate because he and other cast members work so hard to protect secrets. “You think about all the work you do,” he said. “I'd never say anything to anybody–even my closest family members. I take security very seriously. Maybe that&#039..

Dragon Ball FighterZ Dev Comments On Switch Version, Cross-Play

The exciting-looking fighting game Dragon Ball FighterZ could come to Nintendo Switch, though it sounds like it won't happen anytime soon. At the Evo 2017 tournament this weekend, producer Tomoko Hiroki said the developer is focusing on Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2's Switch version first before thinking about what comes next.
“We want players to first go there,” Hiroki said about bringing Xenoverse 2 to Switch, according to Destructoid. “And then we can talk about FighterZ.”
Xenoverse 2 comes out for Switch in September, so the hypothetical Switch version of FighterZ would follow sometime after that.
Another hot topic for multiplayer gaming these days is cross-play, and we now know FighterZ will not support this. Hiroki told Shonen Games (via BleedingCool) that there won't be cross-play between consoles and/or PC.
In other news about Dragon Ball FighterZ, the next character, Trunks, was also announced at Evo this weekend. You can learn more and watch a trailer here.
