Square Enix revealed that they currently have five unannounced projects in the works.
The F**k S-E? Finish Versus and 14, if they're good enough they'll get enough money for a while
I bet 4 of them are on DS.
And the DS is a generous assumption. 2 DS, 3 cell-phone or flash games. Maybe a PSP game if they've been into the Saki that day at headquarters. Keep the hits coming SE.
@Chris399: Sorry, I may have overestimated them :D
I think they are 3 DS games.SE takes too long time to develop games for the high def consoles so I doubt they can develop 5 games for these consoles ;)
There was a time when I gave a da*n. Like "hay" said 4 of them will be DS games.
Maybe 3 of them are DS games, one on PSP and the other on the Xbox 360. I jest, of course, but that seems to be their primary focuses this gen.
So I am guessing... 0 PS3 game. 1 PC WW2 FPS game. 2 iPhone games. 3 DS games. 4 No Profit.
I kid I kid.... well kinda. >.>
They already earned over 2 million in Japan alone, and are expecting at least another 1 million in Europe and else where. SE bring quality, and also they are experimenting a lot with games on the Xbox 360.
Don't get excited, it's just 5 more NES and PS1 to DS ports. Keep up all that 'innovative' game making you're doing SE, you're sure showing all those western RPG developers who's boss :S *shoddy DS port #10000* "Take that bethesda!, and that bioware!"
Alot of people tend to think that most of these games will be for the DS or some other lesser handheld or console. I don't really know. It said they have 5 in the works and that 2 are out this year. DS games(normally) are quick and easy games to develop not exactly something that would take more then a year if the games are already in development. I'm tempted to believe this games are all across various different platforms. I'm sure 1 or 2 are DS games but I wouldn't say they all are.
.. but damn SE ... VAGRANT STORY 2 VAGRANT STORY 2 VAGRANT STORY 2 VAGRANT STORY 2 VAGRANT STORY 2 VAGRANT STORY 2 VAGRANT STORY 2 VAGRANT STORY 2 VAGRANT STORY 2 .. PLEASE
5 games eh? My son would probably play them when he is 12 and he is about 10 months old right now :)
One of them is Fortress, the sequel to Final Fantasy XII.
I'm guessing a new Dragon Quest remake is in the works, since the last one sold like pancakes. Even with the retail success of FFXIII on the PS3, I still expect SE to piss us off. My gut feeling tells me, that they would make another exclusive for the 360. Yeah, SE's dumb like that.
but I'm pretty sure it's just a matter of time before FF VS get's a 360 announcement. It's the exact same song and dance they did with XIII. Radio silence. Very little media being released, aside from obscure interviews with artists and creative-directors talking about the "vision" that they have. A cheque will be written, mark my words. It'll probably stay exclusive in Japan though. Releasing a 3-4 disc game in that region on the 360, basically has you making just enough to cover the manufacturing and promotional costs. And FFXVI going to MS' machine is a given too.
I'd like to think that if Vs ends up on the 360 that Nomura would be pretty upset. From what I hear (which is admittedly mere speculation)he prefers the PS3. Not being a dev I have no idea how the politics work, but I would hope Square would fight to keep him. I know if he left, I'd follow.
Please be the remake of Vagrant Story for the PSP. That the team that worked on bringing Final Fantasy Tactics: The Lions War said they might make next. I want a remake or sequel for that game badly. As for what the other ones are I have no idea what to guess at.
Well Akitoshi Kawazu recently said he's not allowed to talk about what the FFXII/Ivalice team is up to, so that could be either awesome or terrible.
Pretty sure that's already out on the JP PSN.
1 Tokita game, 1 Crystal Chronicles game, something SaGa team may be working on, possibly another children's game(following Pingu, Snoopy and Miffy, haha) and Fortress?
/sarcasm SE F*****g B******s.
The 3rd birthday could be in there. There hasn't been a clearly and officialy announcement for it and gameplay, so maybe this one. For the others, square disappointed me for some time now, so my expectations isn't very high. there so much games that square could work on, but they only do remakes and new crappy IP (360's one). games that haven't popped up in a while and should be their next target (I know they can't do them all): chrono series (still waiting for this one since a long time), Kingdom Hearts, Vagrant story, a good mana game ( like the old ones! but done on a next gen console) and, stop me if I'm crazy, but a RPG made within the mario universe, MADE by square, would be awesome. There's many left out series like the Saga series, actraiser (hehe) and others. Square got potential, their just not using it. the 2 chrono games did EXTREMELY well, so why would a third one not do so? the mana series have been struck by too many experiment of new gameplay. Why not stick to the old and classic ones? Square isn't as crappy as Rare is right now because of Microsoft, but with all these New IP that wasn't very good and exclusive to microsoft, I would have learn from my errors if I were them.
Hopefully some of them are ps3 exclusives.
Square Enix have been GARBAGE lately
Just the fact that they're working on so many games means that they're all gonna be flops ... I remember the days when they'd concentrate on very few games at a time in order to focus on quality other than quantity. Bring on the garbage SE, we haven o faith in you. Prove us wrong though.
4 Ds games and an iPod game.
Who gives a sh*t? Square Enix sucks.
Im just gonna guess rehash,rehash,rehash,rehash and a commercial flop on the 360.
i wonder what the games will be
Yea they could be flops. Knowing SE they would probably make them 360 exclusives. They like making dumb moves like that.
2 ==> DS 1 ==> PSP 2 ==> Wii hate SE !
five unannounced projects: my guess: 3 remakes of remakes, and 2 mobile games
I am waiting for Last Story on the Wii. I couldn't give a rip about Square Enix now.
So 5 more turds or watered down classics coming our way right?
final fantisy ______ exclusive to ds, wii, 360. Square remember who brought you up
They're all going to be flops like FF13 anyways.
Only FF13 was an outstanding success which has sold 2 million in Japan alone. Retard just go die in a ditch
Has sucked these days, here's hoping FF 13 and maybe 14 put my faith back in em. Versus looks awesome though!
For sure there is new Hitman and Tomb Raider game in production.
I think everyone's being conservative about the number of DS titles. I'll put a hundred on 3 DS titles, a DSiWare title and an iPhone title.
Everybody hop on my roflcopter, it's gonna be a long trip.
unless these are Nomura titles, they are going to be garbage. and no, they are not Nomura titles, he is far too busy for this drivel.
Bring back Vagrant Story a proper FF Tactics and for god's sake Tobal!
.. I'M NOT THE Only one that played that amazing game way back then ... ...and let's not forget Eihander!! That game needs a sequel to! :D +bubble :P
SquareEnix racing game it would sell like crazy
