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.

or let Edios run the company they deserve it after the good quality games they put out.

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.
