GR: Square Enix, the company responsible for bringing iconic franchises like Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest into the world, has confirmed that it still plans to support PlayStation Vita with more software in the future.
Indeed! Keep the Vita games coming! How about FF Type-0?
They make games for Android, iOS, 3DS but hardly for the Vita...
start by an HD remaster of Dragon Quest VIII FFXII and Crisis Core and also bring KH collections to Vita. but square talk too much dont expect anything from these morons
@acharlez How about Dissidia Final Fantasy 3?
This is very good news.
Yet no Type-0 Hmmm....
I know. It's a bit ironic, eh?
Typical Square: all mouth, no action.
to begin with they are talking to the japanese market not us, and the japanese can already play type0. whether or not they bother to localize anything they release in japan is yet to be seen. the headline just fails to mention that square isnt really talking to "us"
first good news for Vita since E3
Indeed it is.
But since this is coming post E3, with the biggest possible title they could offer not showing up, its potentially empty promises.
it still better than what Sony has given. They could have said something like we are releasing games for PS4 and make sure they work in Vita through remote play. Which is what Sony says everytime someone asks about Vita
Anything will do! Maybe a new IP?
Good. SE will do what Sony refuses to do.
Seriously. I want more than indies!
More Vita games please!!
The more, the merrier!
"Pledges" is a strong word. They just said one sentence "We will make more Vita games." It's not like they are suddenly going make Vita games left and right. It's probably going to be something small like their iOS games.
That, my friend, is how you get hits. You have to get the reader's hopes up. If the the title simply stated "Square Enix says they will still make Vita games", nobody would read it. But a word like " pledges " makes it sound like they are dedicated to it and will do as much as they can for it.
Type-0? How about you support it with that?
Start with Type-0!
How about a game made only for the Vita? maybe FF or a new IP?
haha good one Square Enix..
Considering the amount of time it takes them to get a Final Fantasy game on the market, I wouldnt get too excited.
Give us Type-0 and a new Dissidia and I will forgive all the stupid decision you've made.
JP only, I bet. That's seems to be the only region that the Vita is doing well. I'd love to see some good SE games on the Vita in the US/EU :)
I don't want Type-0 on Vita, let them make a new FF.
How about another Crystal Defenders
great to hear, but i dont believe
Yeah me neither. It's SE. This past years they can't fulfill their own hype and promises. Not to mention they tease a lot but it ends up as a mobile games.
its pretty [email protected] simple exactly Why Square are now going to invest into PSVita, oop's I mean Playstation TV that is: http://www.playstation.com/... Take Note, this is For Fall, Price Entry Point of starting @ $99.00 and its a Brand New Living Room or Bed Room Game console. Instead of Being a Handheld its now a Living Room Console..with a very consumer Price friendly Price point, Sony already has the Marketting ready to go for the Fall, Expect the blitz to be starting in Sept. since Amazon has this unit listed to release Nov 30TH http://www.amazon.com/PlayS... Tag Line for PLAYSTATION TV Ready, Set, Play! http://www.playstation.com/... Sony will be the only one out of the big Three With a Brand New Living room Console releasing this year with such a low price point to start out with for fall.
people keep saying the price of entry is $99.00 but it isn't really unless you already own a Vita and PS3, the thing cannot do anything on its own without a memory card and a dualshock.... if you already have PS4 and only care about streaming and not running anythign natively then yes you only need the $99.00 box but then you won't be a potential buyer for Vita games and in that case the price of entry is not $99.00 because you need to already have paid the $399.00 for the PS4
Not completely correct you would not need a PS4 the Playstation TV is a console in of itself and the $139.00 bundle comes with a 8 GB card anyway, but those that may buy the system can still use an existing on board storage of the playstation TV yes its only 1GB http://www.playstation.com/... but its still enough for a game and save file adding in the cost of the Dual Shock 3 anyway would still net more expensive than the $139.00 bundle Sony is banking on that anyhow. so if you do not need the $139.00 bundle that still make the price point $99.00 and there is still Deals for the fall sell season, its still the cheapest Price entry point for a new living console for the fall even with the added cost of a Dual Shock 3 bundle, hell if you already have a Dual Shock 3 you are set to still use the system. for people that do not then there is the $139.00 Bundle. @Inception Good point, but the one point of this is this fall Sony is not trying to sell a $200.00 handheld they are selling a $99.00 to $139.00 Micro-Game console. the fact that its not going to be marketed as a Handheld its being Marketed as a game console for bedrooms and living rooms. I see it as more of : Call it a Living room console for the casual Game console user! if you will, is more along the lines what this is targeting. Its more about selling the Eco system than really about just one part of the eco system like Sony has done in the past. its not just about each console they produce being by itself The very point is its direct connected to the same eco system as the larger more expensive living room console.
got it exactly right. i dont even think it comes with a hdmi cable. the $139 version comes with a hdmi cable, ds3 controller, hdmi cable and lego movie game. so that looks like minimal entry. i also like to point out that not all vita games are compatible. essentially it is a psone and psp console. with streaming capabilities for ps4 if you have one and psnow coming soon so renting ps3 and soon ps2. it was sensible to not call it a vita tv since it is barely a vita.
Bring type-0 and make a new dissidia!
*Sigh* I just want Birth By Sleep or Crisis Core HD. Please Square.
KH remix port, KH remix port PLEASE!!!
If this Squaresoft than i'll believe what they said. But this is SE, a company who past this years can't fulfill their own hype and promises. So, stop talking SE and give me proof that you 'pledge' to support vita! Because so far you only released 5 games (cmiiw) for vita in the span of 2 1/2 years. - Army Corps of Hell - Lord of Apocalypse (multiplat with PSP, jpn only) - FF X/X-2 remaster (multiplat with PS3) - Million Arthur (a f*kin web browser game, multiplat with mobile, jpn only) I can count more than 5 vita games from NIS, TK, Namco, Falcom, Xseed, or Aksyss.
Can I has a new Dragon Quest for Vita please. The screen makes cel-shaded graphics look fantastic.
Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep Volume 2 would be great!
Please do! My wallet is waiting.
Bring both Kingdom Hearts collection to vita, also hd remake of crisis core would be nice. Bit pissed about Type-0 not coming to Vita but still get to play it though
"Vitaは重要でスクエニのコンテンツと親和性が高 く、タイトルを供給していく。" "Vita is important(to Square Enix), and compatible to our contents, we're going to provide titles(for Vita)" Expect more mobile port **** like Million Arthur!
I would love an exclusive FF title, but I'd be pretty darn happy with a FFXII HD remaster and KH HD Collection for Vita. Bring it on Squeenix!
This is what, the 3rd time SE has said this about a system in the past 30 days? I'll believe it when I see it. They need to focus on making AAA games again, then pledge those on the Vita, on the Wii U, on the 3DS (the systems they brought to their "Pledge").
Give Me Final Fantasy 12HD, Bravely Default, and Dragon Quest 8 and I will never ask for another Vita game again.
Bravely Default is not gonna happen.
it could happen if they saw profit in it, they already said that they are looking to expand bravely default to other platforms to make it something like final fantasy, however i just hope they dont end up putting it on phones instead.
That was Silicon Studio not Square Enix. The reason why I said it wont happen because Nintendo go it published outside Japan. Maybe Bravely Second or Third can come to Vita but it most likely won't. Also they never said the were looking to bring it. They said it might expand.
Microsoft published Ninja Gaiden 1 & 2 for Xbox & 360, but it doesn't stop Tecmo to released Ninja Gaiden Sigma 1 & 2 for PS3. Microsoft published Mass Effect 1 for 360. But it doesn't stop EA to released Mass Effect 1 along with ME 2 & 3 a couple years later for PS3. Nintendo published RE 4 for GC in Australia. But it doesn't stop Capcom to released RE 4 for PS2. Fyi, SE owned Bravely Default IP's, not Nintendo. So SE can released the game for other platform anytime they want.
Nice, after the last couple of years, especially on PC, Squeenix is good in my book.
That makes me happy to hear, but I'll believe it if I see it. These companies are all talk lately.
You know what would be funny? If FF Type-0 won't be released for PS Vita, because....Final Fantasy Type-1 is in development for the Vita with a International release date set for next year...INCEPTION.
