"The reboot of the classic stealth series Thief will debut in Japan this June. To prepare, Square Enix has started up its hype machine. Its marketing method, however, seems a little bit dishonest." -GR
I'm all for cross-promotion where it's relevant, but this just feels... off.
Thief was a disaster...
Weird crossover, but whatever works I guess.
Is there no such thing as bad publicity?
The game was lame when it was released in February and it'll be lame when it's released in Japan.
Agreed. Plus, I think a lot of people will be kind of pissed of if they see this and think "Oh hey, Square Enix! And a Final Fantasy thief! I'll be I'll be interested in this!" And then then buy it. Yikes. I would be furious.
