Square Enix just announced a teaser site for their new mobile game Dragon Sky. Judging from the site, the game is still a ways away from being ready, but boy does it look beautiful.
less mobile please Square :)
They apparently made a lot of money from one, enough to positively effect their stocks, so no. There will be more...
You're asking Square to drop one of the biggest markets in Japan? I don't care if they release mobile games. As long as they keep console releasing coming. People don't seem to understand that they have multiple studios and development teams that are specialized in this area directly. It's not like they're pulling developers off of your favorite game and making them work on mobile games.
So then market it in Japan and not in the over here then...They FLOPPED so hard last gen I can't take them seriously like I used to in the past. Last gen I believe they produced only two final fantasy games...and they were part of the same story. I guess the best way to describe squeenix is inept.
My gosh what has happened to this once great company man....It's almost as if they intentionally want to piss off their loyal fans...mobile games...really squeenix....really??? I want square enix back...the folks from the PS2 days with games like Radiata Stories (OMG I LOVED THAT GAME) and Star Ocean...these Squeenix folks man...who the hell is in charge over there???
You do know that they were making mobile games back in the PS2 days, right? Look up Before Crisis: Final Fantasy 7. It was a prequel to Final Fantasy 7 that was exclusive to mobile platforms. Only reason why nobody has heard of it was because it was only in Japan. They've been doing this for longer than you think.
The once great company you mentioned back in the psone era & semi ps2 era was SquareSoft. Not Square Enix.
@xenocea you right sir...you are right!
Mobile game after mobile game, and yet no announcement of Final Fantasy Type-0 for release in the West...
It's not going to happen. It could if they would just remove the frickin' song that prevents it from happening, but they're not going to. This is SE man. They made 3 Lightning games. 3. They don't care.
Square-Enix's future is on mobile. They lost much of their faithful fans on consoles as a result of their long series of poor business decisions, so instead of trying to win us back, they moved on to another market. Likewise, I moved on to NIS, Namco and Atlus for my RPG needs. I couldn't look back.
The most likely way that'll happen is if Sony, themselves, put some pressure on Square-Enix. Which, honestly, I don't see why they don't do. Type-0 would definitely move Vitas, so I don't see why Sony wouldn't want that.
Getting real tired of your shit squareenix
Move on man, nothing can be done about it. They found a new market willing to put up with their business. They lost much of their original fanbase and they know it. I moved on to other RPG developers and couldn't look back. I am very happy without FF.
OMFG SQUARE........ STOP WITH THE MOBILE BS
PLEASE BE EXCITED
fok u square give us real games (no ff 13 is not a real game ff 13 is trash)
square has been one of my favorite companies for years why would they waste their talents on mobile ripoffs...
>mobile oh god dammit. would this cancer please stop? mobile gaming is pure s*** and should die out from the gaming industry.
Mobile gaming is pretty big in japan. The western industry we're sitting at here is cancer to this already stagnating industry.
Give us just FF IV , KH 3 and then doog luck with your mobile game market
