Square Enix eyes further acquisitions

Buying Eidos, makers of the Lara Croft: Tomb Raider video game, is just the first step in turning Square Enix into a more global company, said Yoichi Wada, the Japanese games group's president.

Mr Wada, who has just completed the £84.3m ($123.3m) purchase of the flagship UK games maker, would not rule out further acquisitions as he looks to reach out to western gaming markets.

"The combination of Eidos and Square Enix gives us a good platform from which to expand. In that process, we might decide to acquire another company," Mr Wada said.

The story is too old to be commented.
