Square Enix teases secret project

digitalspy.ie: Final Fantasy studio Square Enix has launched a website teasing a secret project.
The domain depicts a space-themed backdrop with a countdown due to expire at 3am on December 12, UK time. (3DS, PC, PS Vita, PS3, Square Enix, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Star ocean 5 for Ps3 and Vita redeem yourself SE. If this is some countdown for a mobile game just means se can go lower then rock bottom.

After SOIV I really don't know how can you ask for a 5th one... I rather have a new IP with the space theme.
TheBatman_Fanatic  +   868d ago
Tri-ace can't have another chance? They have made good Star Oceans, they just messed up with IV.
Hicken  +   868d ago
SOIV wasn't even that bad, if I'm being honest. Seems like people just WANT Square-Enix-related stuff to suck.
Godmars290  +   868d ago
If they actually hired some writers then built a game around that story instead of the other way around, then it might have a chance.

But I'm not expecting anything more than the typical collection of stereotypes sadly.

@TheBatman_Fanatic:
And SO3, which was only just a game.
Nerdmaster  +   868d ago
@TheBatman_Fanatic
SO4 wasn't so bad. 3 is the one that was terrible. I loved SO 1 and 2, I couldn't believe how bad 3 was.
doogiebear  +   868d ago
Meh. lost interest in sqeenix. Contact me when Atlus announces the next Persona game.
ATi_Elite  +   868d ago
Heroes and Generals (WWII FPS/RTS/MMO) for the PC!
HammadTheBeast  +   867d ago
No, it's Final Fantasy XIII-4. Cause we just all want another, don't we?
richierich  +   869d ago
I never thought I would see Square Enix making so many bad games they were legendary back in the NES,SNES and PS1 days I dont know what happened to them since then
youndamie  +   868d ago
Hey PS2 Era was pretty good too, FFX,XI,XII
silkrevolver  +   868d ago
Yeah
X is my favorite Final Fantasy.
One of my favorite all time games, actually...
youndamie  +   868d ago
@silk IX was favorite game(first game I ever played) but X follows close second.
DOMination-  +   868d ago
For me FFX gets a slightly easy ride. It had awful voice acting and was essentially as linear as FF13. It did have a good combat setup and blitzball was fun.

It was a good game but it was the start of this path SE took of walking down corridors instead of having a world map to get to each location.
Nerdmaster  +   868d ago
@silkrevolver
Everything reaches its pinnacle before it crashes down. Final Fantasy X was Square's pinnacle.
YouAreSoWrong  +   868d ago
@Nerdmaster

I literally made an account just to say this, so feel honored, or insulted I suppose, but please do not refer to ffx as squares pinnacle. Not trying to troll, although it might come out that way, but ffx was the beginning of the end.

X was the game that became more about cutscenes than gameplay, the characters were dull and boring, and it became a corridor rpg as opposed to open world.
Kingthrash360  +   867d ago
@ you are so wrong, I .. In my opinion feel the characters on X were anything but dull. I mean goth chick with dolls as a weapon or a buff dude who kicks a ball to kill enemy's and one word .... Ject
UberAndrew  +   867d ago
They started going down hill after Square and Enix fused. They were great companies separately, but terrible together.
Nodoze  +   867d ago
They are like Peanut Butter and Horseradish. Some things just don't go well together.

As for this new announcement, when is it slated to be done 2099? Typical SE dev cycle.
TheBatman_Fanatic  +   868d ago
Just in case, Star Ocean IV is made by Tri-ace, not Square!
Nerdmaster  +   868d ago
Wikipedia says:
Developer(s): tri-Ace, Square Enix
rlacorne  +   868d ago
But published by SE now, since Enix got eaten. :(

Sad sad day in gaming history.
aiBreeze  +   868d ago
Good job Square, done a good job to make sure the picture couldn't be misinterpreted as something fans have actually been asking for.
dredgewalker  +   868d ago
Uhhmmm looks like Lightning is looking out into space....Final Fantasy 13-4 Space Lightning?
CLOUD1983  +   868d ago
"Meanwhile, the studio is working on the anticipated Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII..."

I rofl hard when I read that... anticipated what? is that guy now pretend to be a game journalist when he write so retarded things? what a moron...
Griffin4871  +   868d ago
Star Wars: Til the End of Time.
animegamingnerd  +   868d ago
watch it be a IOS port
Kamikaze135  +   868d ago
I don't care what it is. I just hope it's good.
XXXL  +   868d ago
Square is dead to me. I hope this is a countdown to them going out of business.
Tetsujin  +   867d ago
Wait for vs13, then they can die out.

Or it's a count down till Wada resigns.
Chard  +   868d ago
Versus or GTFO
ApexHell  +   868d ago
reminds me of star ocean
Chrono  +   868d ago
For what I heard, it will be a social game called Star Galaxy for mobile platforms, so don't get very excited because you'll be disappointed.

Lightning has a baby: Final Fantasy 13-4
Lightning Returns Again: Final Fantasy 13-3-2
Lightning Can't get rid of this @#$%&: Final Fantasy 13-4
Lightning We'll keep going until you accept her as our mascot even though she's a pitiful character who is Toriyama's attempt at creating a female Cloud so that Square-Enix can replicate the success of FFVII and the talents of the directors of that game: Final Fantasy 13-4

Square-Enix; just stop announcing new crap, stop trying to make us hyped for games we don't want and didn't ask for, stop trying to make this pathetic Lightning character a new mascot because she'll never be accepted as such, stop giving us information on games we don't want, and JUST GIVE US FINAL FANTASY VERSUS XIII!

At this point, no one gives a damn if you're being silent because you want to take it multiplat and don't want the fallout you received the last time you made a dumbass move like announcing it at the last minute then forcing PS3 users to wait until the 360 version was done. WE JUST WANT NEW INFO ON THE GAME FOR BAHAMUT'S SAKE!

Some new gameplay footage, an announcement on its development progress, A FRICKIN' EVENT IN WHICH YOU WILL SHOWCASE EVEN A TRAILER TO THE WORLD AND NOT BEHIND A CLOSED MEGA THEATER! Is that so much to ask?

And I swear to Cid if someone tries to post one reply about how SE are delivering the quality on handhelds, or that they have multiple teams and can still announce crap, I will find the biggest wooden plank I can find and thwap each and every one of you across the face with it. SE's attitude towards Final Fantasy 13, Final Fantasy Versus 13, and the fans has been deplorable and they deserve no quarter. We never asked for a Lightning trilogy, we only wanted Versus XIII. SE can go screw themselves until we get any information on it.

Worse still, Nomura said he'll show the future of Final Fantasy "soon". That was back in early September. Even their hints about hints are vague!!!
knifefight  +   868d ago
The hints are vague because the people giving them have absofrickinglutely no idea what they're doing, but giving a hint makes it LOOK like they do.
DragonKnight  +   868d ago
I believe he was talking about how Versus XIII was using part of the Luminous engine, which is their new engine for next gen.
Kratoscar2008  +   868d ago
If we were in the PS2 era i would care for SE news but in this gen....
shempo  +   868d ago
meanwhile noctis still waiting
youndamie  +   868d ago
Even in the trailer he looks like hes getting tired of waiting when he's on the throne, and in the car lol
OneAboveAll  +   868d ago
Incoming another game to cater to the weeaboos.
rlacorne  +   868d ago
Only games I wanna get news from by SE are a new Star Ocean, a new Valkyrie Profile, or an actual srpg Front Mission.

"Lightning goes to space" can stay in their 'good ideas' closet.
capox  +   867d ago
Wow the Vita is selling well look at this figures....
