Square Enix Celebrates Exactly 10 Years, Big News Coming?

PSXtreme: Yes, believe it or not, it was exactly ten years ago today that Squaresoft merged with Enix and became Square Enix.

...and the long-time Final Fantasy faithful still hope the entire debacle is just one long April Fool's prank. Maybe they'll soon just go, "Gotcha!" and announce a Final Fantasy VII remake for PS4, along with Final Fantasy XV that's actually a traditional FF installment. (Industry, Square Enix)

Nope!
Squaresoft announces their greatest April Fool´s joke ever!

"It lasted 10 years but now we are back!" - Squaresoft

What is there to celebrate in the first place?
gaffyh  +   535d ago
@blitz - Wada getting kicked out of the CEO position. Now that is worth celebrating.

LMFAO! With Wada out, I'm fairly certain Square Enix can get back on track and reacquaint themselves with their fanbase.

They should announce how they plan on redeeming themsleves.

They should also change their name to Squaresoft if they plan on redeeming themselves

I remember the good times before they merged. Squaresoft made great rpgs and Enix made great rpgs.

*sound of toilet flushing*

Two more Kingdom Hearts games. One for console(s), one for handheld(s). ;)

"Maybe they'll soon just go, "Gotcha!" and announce a Final Fantasy VII remake for PS4,"

Or better yet move on from a past they've exploited rather than build on.

Better news than Wada leaving? Unlikely.

FF13 Versus is going multiplatform but now has a release date.
Snookies12  +   535d ago
It was already said that Nomura doesn't like doing multi-platform games. Considering that he's the head of the Versus XIII project, I doubt that will be happening. A port to other consoles after the game has come out though? Yes, I could see that happening, and even Nomura himself said that was a possibility. He simply wanted to focus on one console so that he could get the most out of it though.

"a little bit happy"? Wow, even the announcement doesn't sound excited about the annoucement.

Is this a joke? This article uses N4G as its source. What's the point of having it here?
abzdine  +   535d ago
The news is: Wada is back! :)

Well unfortunately it may not be a joke even if it is April Fool day. Squarenix did in fact form on this date 10 years ago, that is when for the most part began the downfall of the JRPG genre from where it was before Square & Enix formed.

Funny that we all thought that 2 of the most influential JRPG developers teaming up would be a good thing....how wrong we were cause they both lost their mentality on what made them so good in the first place.

So this announcement i'm not holding my breath until Squarenix has proven themselves they are worthy of me taking them seriously again. The fanbase is in desperate need of SOMETHING to make them believe in them again when they can do no wrong.

they should announce a split! i want the old squaresoft!!
TheoreticalParticle  +   535d ago
I bet they celebrate by firing a bunch of people.
Magnus  +   535d ago
Glad Wada is gone I want the announcement to be a release date for FFVS13. Hell been waiting long enough for that title.

That man needed to go! Its sad because with all the money Square had, they could had bought up a lot of teams to help finish FFXIII, FFXIII Versus etc in a realistic time frame.

People can say what they want, but time is money. A game coming out this late means,

1. The gameplay ideas are probably old

2. The graphics are dated as hell and not as impressive as once thought because it aged

3. Expectations reach Olympion heights which just can't be met

4. Interest lowers and the fans which would had bought it day one, have moved on to other IPs...ie Persona!

So this game getting delayed so many times is going to really cost Square. It really has to do with trust, now when they announce FFXV....whos going to care?

Tell me about it when its 3 months away from being in my hands and MAYBE then I'll believe you. Their tech demo was so impressive, but it being Square just made it so....meh. Only because we know just how long it takes them to boil a damn egg.

If Square can get back into there old ways ie FF Versus releases ending of this year, FFXV announced and actually release in a real time frame, KH3 announced etc. Then I think they will be ok. But we need KH4, FFXV, FFXVI and FFXVII in the same gen. Sorry, but Square has done it for over 4 gens, yet we get shafted this gen? 2 Kingdom Hearts, 3 main Final Fantasy's and Square will be back on track. I don't see this as being some sore of impossible task.

Square is just managed like a damn kindergarten class.

Remember the good old days? Podcast covered some Final Fantasy XIII Versus info and had some really good incite into what might have happened.
