Square Enix announces new iPod RPG

Square Enix has just announced that a new RPG called Song Summoner: The Unsung Heroes is now available for iPod Nano, iPod Classic and fifth generation iPod. The game costs €4.99 and can be downloaded from the iTunes Store. This is the story of the game, taken from the press release:

"From the days of old, Melodica was a land of music, a land of freedom. The people sang, played and danced to the music they so cherished. Until one day, they came - the Mechanoids, who enhanced their bodies with machinery. Those who were tempted by greed and power willingly gave away their souls for bodies of steel, forsaking their humanity to become cold, emotionless automatons. Now, they seek to destroy all that do not embrace their way of life.

But there is hope on the horizon. There are those who are fated to stand against the tyranny of the machines - the Superstars, who can turn sound into lethal weapons, and the Conductor, also known as the Song Summoner, who can summon powerful warriors born of music.

In their most desperate hour, Melodica awaits the arrival of their new Song Summoner..."

Wait what indeed...

When the sh!t was this announced? And what the hell...meh, im tired of trying to understand SE.

chaosatom3691d ago

ok....

so all you have to do in this game is spin the character around for hours on end.

Nitrowolf23691d ago

actually they play games pretty well if there moded
i remember at school my buddy had a ipod with a whole bunch of old gameboy games. zelda,pokemon, mario and plenty more.

This is pointless Ipod games suck. They aren't fun to play and if the concept seems fun they still aren't fun to play on a screen 1 10th the size of a DS or PSP screen and you only have like 2 buttons so its kinda pointless. I would assume this is just SE testing the waters seeing as its a Ipod I doubt it took that much for them to make in both money and time.

The 2 programmers who did this game COULD have been working on FFXIII.

v1c1ous3691d ago

they need all the income they can.

thereapersson3691d ago

They should just remake FFVII then!

Megaton3691d ago

They wouldn't even have to remake it, just throw the old version up on the PSN. That's what I don't understand when I hear about their financial troubles. They've got this vault of megaton classics that they just seem to have completely forgotten about.

Hell yeah. Square Enix is collecting Soda cans for recycling to pay the electric bill

@4.3

I agree. They should do Final Fantasy VII: HD, before a remake. The same game, with HD prerendered backgrounds, and redo the CGI movies, same models and effects just all at 1080p.

thereapersson3691d ago

SE has heard numerous times that fans want an FF VII remake, or even a re-release on the PSN would suffice. They don't do it, and instead do crap like this.

No feedback or anything, at least as far as I know

FUHK... PEOPLE GET READY FOR A NEW NEXT GEN SYSTEM FROM APPLE PROBABLY WHEN 2012 HITS THEY WILL MAKE A ANNOUNCEMNT.... DOES ANYONE ELSE FEEL THAT WHEN THIS HAPPENNS, TWO ARCH RIVALS ARE GONNA HAVE TO JOIN FORCES TO OVER COME APPLE? ITS JUST A PREDICTION U NEVER KNOW!! ANYONE IS WELCOME TO GIVE YOUR OWN PREDICTIONS (SORRY FOR THE CAPS, MY CAPS KEY GOT JAMMED IN MY KEYBOARD!!)

Or Sony and Apple could join forces and destroy everybody...

Microsoft should just go back to being what they really are...a software company like Atari and Activision and EA.

Microsoft should just buy up a lot of the software gamming companies and make more money just making games for what systems are left out there...There will always be nintendo and there will always be Sony...Apple will make headway with its Iphone and Iphone touch, since it can do 3d and motion games but apple will never make a game console, but they could team up with nintendo or sony for the next Wii or playstation.

Apple actually is a software\hardware company, unlike microsoft which tries to be a hardware company...all they have is the Zune and the Xbox 360, which hardly dominate in their respective fields...but apple dominates with its Ipod lineup and is about to take out all the smart phones worldwide starting this friday. And they make a good laptop...

Microsoft rules the world in OS software, there is no denying that.

I doubt Nintendo would ever side with Apple. Nintendo likes it's own control, much the same as Apple. Two proprietary companies butting heads wouldn't work. Apple would want it's way and Nintendo would also want it's way. You'd have 2 companies each vying for it's own element of control of the market. It simply would not work.

Square-Enix has proven itself a strange presence, developing established games on platforms that don't make sense. I will cite Star Ocean 4 here. A series that has a history on PlayStation consoles, yet the next sequel is appearing on the PS3's rival, despite it's near complete lack of sales in Japan. Squeenix's logic escapes me, developing SO4 for a non-Japanese console that sells almost nothing in Japan, where Star Ocean's main audience is predominantly Japanese. Where most current-gen console sales are PS3. It seems their logic is based on "Western money begets Eastern interest". Am I so wrong in my thoughts?
