On a side note it’s nice to see indie icons get some love in the series. Even Koei Tecmo & Ubisoft got a few shoutouts with some trophies.

Anytime a third party publisher gets a second rep, it’s from a different genre than their first character.

Capcom with Mega Man and Street Fighter
Sega with Sonic the Hedgehog and Bayonetta
Konami with Metal Gear and Castlevania

By series tradition if Square Enix were to have another rep it’d have be from a non-RPG franchise.
