Gaming Union E3 2010 Preview: Square Enix

Square Enix is a company with a history entrenched in the world of RPGs. Between franchises like Final Fantasy and Star Ocean, it's hard to associate them with anything else, but Square Enix has been keeping themselves busy publishing some pretty fun and (considering my preconceived notion of them) different games. So what will fans be able to expect from the infamous Square Enix? Quite a bit actually, and all of it looks pretty darn good.

Come on sweet surprise announcement! FF VII remake? Even though if they did that, they would be torn apart for denying it for so long.

JDouglasGU5155d ago

looks like Square should have a pretty strong show.

ShapelyChops5155d ago

I know nobody else will ever agree with me, but COME ON FF8 REMAKE!

The Slash5153d ago

I totally agree. FFVIII REMAKE!! Viva la revolution!!

Disappointing that there are hardly any Final Fantasy titles.

Square Enix Is "Working Hard" On Small To Medium-Scaled Games, CEO Says

The Square Enix CEO has recently confirmed in a shareholders' meeting that it is still working hard on multiple small-sized games.

CrimsonWing6922d ago

I thought they said they were focusing on bigger games… so, we’re staying the same now?

just_looken22d ago

They should come clean and just say that they are working hard on keeping the light's on as they were a greedy company that is now almost broke.

The_Blue21d ago

They can't decide rather to squeeze into the indie mobile market or AAA.

CrimsonWing6921d ago

All I can say is I hope Front Mission 3 Remake didn't get cancelled.

anast22d ago

Quality should be number 1.

Abnor_Mal22d ago

Does smaller games translate to smaller prices for the consumer, or no?

just_looken22d ago (Edited 22d ago )

HA HA square small prices this is the company that made avengers and said Final Fantasy VII Rebirth Didn't Meet Sales Expectations Amid Struggles

Same in 2023 with ff16

https://www.eurogamer.net/f...

They got 202 million usd in operating income they want cash fast so get those $60 3hr long games out there fast and more microtransactions now.

Hotpot22d ago

Well I don’t mind more HD-2D games.. preferably something like FFVI, Chrono Trigger, or Xenogears.

shinoff218321d ago

Even some new single story experiences in hd2d(octapath is good but I like single story games to)

Fear Effect coming to PS5, PS4, Switch, and PC in 2025

Limited Run Games, in cooperation with Square Enix, will release action adventure game Fear Effect for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Switch, and PC via Steam in 2025, the company announced.

CrimsonWing6930d ago (Edited 30d ago )

What!? That is freaking great!!!! I really loved this game back in the day and was so pissed the Remake got changed and then eventually canceled. This is such great news that it’s the original. Will definitely get the plat for it.

Mr Pumblechook29d ago

The article mentions:

* PC
* Nintendo Switch
* PlayStation 4
* PlayStation 5

But why isn’t there a mention of the Xbox Series version?

CrimsonWing6929d ago

Yea that’s a Limited Run Games thing like what @Scissorman showed in the article. They’ve tried selling the physical versions of Xsex games, but they just don’t sell. But I’m fairly sure this should be digital for Xbox, if not, then it’s time to drop Xbox and come to greener pastures.

wesnytsfs29d ago

@CrimsonWing69, greener pastures.. Yep moved to mainly PC now myself get all the good games from both companies now if only Nintendo would release games on PC too.

RiseNShine29d ago

so a ps1 game launched in modern platformos, mmmkay. I can play it already in emulators with high res, retroachievements support and more, doesn't make much sense.

Square Enix Is Going Multiplatform; The Layoffs & Its Past Don't Inspire Confidence

After its latest games didn't meet sales targets, Square Enix is going multiplatform but the company's track record isn't convincing.

Scissorman65d ago

Square Enix been multiplatform for decades, a few exclusively-deals doesn't make them any less multiplatform.
