So does that mean, se will finally pull it's head out of it's ass and regain the magic it lost this gen. We are 7 yrs into the gen and just now getting a kh game and it is a hd collection at that.

Release versus already or confirm it a next gen title.

I don't think they will be releasing Versus anytime soon. However, this is good news.

Sakaguchi hates Square Enix. He will never return to the company.

I love the FF franchise & I don't know if Square could develop the magic in games they once had but Wada made alot of BAD buisness decisions,I liked FF-XIII but there was no need for 3 of them,Square could have released 2 other jrpg's instead,hopefully this new CEO will make better wiser buisness decisions & most important LISTEN to the FANS without the FANS there wouldn't be a Squaresoft.

Well goodbye wada you weren't a good CEO. The alarm bells rang when you used a fortune teller.

The company must move forward now.

I guess following the money really got them no where in the end. The guy clearly made all the wrong business decisions in the end & this was the result.

This should have happened much earlier. Squarenix has a lot to do to win back the confidence of the fans. Hopefully Matsuda can do what Kaz is doing & rebuild a once respectable company.
