DISCLAIMER: Half real, half me being a jerk. Aaaaaand GO!
Kotaku reports that via a Famitsu leak, Square Enix president Yosuke Matsuda had allegedly said:
“Actually, right now, we are readying a new role-playing game for home consoles that isn’t a remake,” “In December, we’ll start with making an announcement.”
Let us just cut right to the good stuff.
- It’s not Final Fantasy VII
- It is not any other remake
- It is going to suck
- It is also not Chrono Trigger
Other than serving you up four million variations on the Final Fantasy formula, Square-Enix is a publishing company that occasionally develops high concept big budget games.
For the Square-Enix faithful holding out hope that they will return to their former glory, my heart is with you but it is just not going to happen. I keep hearing people suggesting Square-Enix is going through a slump. When did it start? This is the longest slump I’ve been able to see a company sit through if they were not turning a profit and if they were turning a profit, how is it a slump?
Square-Enix is a little unreliable when it comes to developing solid titles that are held in high regard. I’m rooting for them but their vision and mine are no longer in unison.
