Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth director Naoki Hamaguchi has said in a new interview that a patch for the game to address performance woes.

In an interview with One More Game, the director explained that a patch will be releasing sooner rather than later to address concerns that fans have had with the performance of the newly released game.

“We’ve received a lot of feedback on whether the graphics in the performance mode will be improved or not. We hear you, and we are currently working on an update patch to improve that aspect. I don’t think the release date would be far away from now,” Hamaguchi said.

The director also explained that lightning in certain circumstances will be fixed after complaints that it makes shadows look “very scary”.

“We have [also] heard from players that in certain situations, the facial lighting makes some character shadows look very scary. So that’s one part of the update that we are working on,” Hamaguchi explained in the interview.

However, Hamaguchi refused to divulge exactly what to expect from the patch or give an exact release date, only saying that he doesn’t expect fans to have to wait too long to get it.

Young Fathers on what’s next: “We’ll just ride the wave, then get back in the studio and do it all again”

The trio spoke to NME on the BRITs 2024 red carpet to reveal their plans for new material

Young Fathers have spoken to NME about the huge response to their fourth album ‘Heavy Heavy’, and revealed that they are already in the process of making new music. Watch our interview above.

The trio – comprised of Alloysious Massaquoi, Kayus Bankole and Graham Hastings – spoke to NME on the red carpet of the 2024 BRIT Awards on Saturday night (March 2). They were nominated for Best British Group, Best Rock/Alternative Act and Best British Album – the latter being for the album ‘Heavy Heavy’.

During the interview, the band were asked about the massive response to the album, which was released in February 2023 and saw them shortlisted for the Mercury Prize Award.

“I think when you make something that’s great and people resonate with it, all these things sort of snowball,” said Massaquoi. “I think it’s all been positive, so it’s great. We’ll just ride the wave, then get back in the studio and do it all again.”

When asked if the band had begun working on more material, Massaquoi revealed that they have already written new songs, and been recording them in between their recent tour dates.

“We’ve been in and out [of the studio] when we were touring,” he explained. “We had a few sessions, just touching base again to see what we can do. It’s just a process… bit by bit.”

Later in the interview on the BRITs red carpet, the Scottish trio revealed that their sources of inspiration have predominantly been from outside the music sphere.

“I’ve been watching a lot of films and TV series, stuff like that,” Massaquoi responded when asked about what has resonated with him recently.

“I was watching Your Honour with Bryan Cranston – that was great. I watched Jonathan Glazier’s new film Zones Of Interest, [and] I saw another film called Girl by a friend of mine — check it out! A bunch of other stuff too. I’ve been busy doing that.”

In other Young Fathers news, the band have been added to the line-up for the 2024 edition of the Teenage Cancer Trust gig series in London, alongside Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds and The Chemical Brothers. They will also be performing at this year’s BBC 6 Music Festival, which also sees appearances by The Smile and Gossip. Find tickets to their upcoming shows here.

Back in December, Young Fathers teamed up with Fontaines D.C., and Massive Attack for a limited edition 12” single to support the charity Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors Without Borders (MSF). 100 per cent of the profits were donated to the charity to help their emergency operations in Gaza and the West Bank.

The trio’s album ‘Heavy Heavy’ was given a five-star review by NME, who described it as “boundary breaking”.

“The numerous styles that fill their sonic smorgasbord – soul, pop, rock, hip-hop, noise – fit together neatly here like the pieces of a puzzle; the band never once sounding disjointed when one sound gives way to the next, often within the same track,” it read.

“In a similar vein to their previous material, the listener is quickly swept along on the Mercury Prize-winning band’s latest dark and dense pop journey that achieves what many artists ultimately aspire to: creating and then honing a sound entirely of their own making.”

Watch Bob Dylan respond to heckler with ‘When I Paint My Masterpiece’ mash-up

“Play something we know!” a fan shouted out at one of the singer’s gigs last week

Bob Dylan appeared to respond to a heckler who shouted “play something we know!” at one of his recent live shows – check out the footage below.

The legendary singer-songwriter performed at the Broward Center For The Performing Arts in Fort Lauderdale, Florida last Friday (March 1) as part of his current ‘Rough And Rowdy Ways’ tour.

Early on in the 16-song set, however, Dylan was interrupted by a dissatisfied audience member. In a fan-shot video, a woman can be heard shouting at the musician to “play something we know!” during the introduction to a live rendition of his 1971 song ‘When I Paint My Masterpiece’.

A fan on X/Twitter later shared the clip, writing: “This is WILD. At Bob Dylan’s concert in Ft Lauderdale on Friday, a woman yells ‘Play something we know!’ Dylan then launches into a new arrangement of ‘When I Paint My Masterpiece’ where he sings the lyrics to the tune of Irving Berlin’s ‘Puttin’ On The Ritz!’

“My brother, who was there up close, said Dylan clearly heard the woman, looked right at her and looked like he was about to say something before he began the song. It’s an absolutely incredible version!”

In a follow-up post, they added: “I’m not implying that Dylan came up with that arrangement on the spot. He and the band had clearly worked it out in advance. But it does feel as if he’s playing it directly in response to what she said. It’s the ultimate rebuttal.”

You can see those tweets and a fan-shot video of the moment below.

As Stereogum notes, there is a discussion over whether Dylan had set his lyrics to the melody from Berlin’s ‘Puttin’ On The Ritz’ (1929) or The Four Lads’ ‘Istanbul (Not Constantinople)’ (1953).

The concert also saw Dylan cover Jimmy Rogers’ ‘Walking By Myself’ live for the first time – tune in above.

Last month Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson announced the ‘Outlaw Music Festival Tour’, their co-headlining US tour for this summer. Dylan’s current run of ‘Rough And Rowdy Ways’ dates is scheduled to conclude in early April.
