    NEWS Square Enix General News

    Time to spin the speculation wheel again, though at least this time it may have some worth in actually paying attention.

    Seems SE is ready to announce a new home console RPG. If a leaked copy of an interview SE President Yosuke Matsuda gave to Famitsu is to be believed, the project started when Matsuda became head of the company and is finally in a state to be announced. The announcement is due in December.

    Matsuda was very clear about it being an RPG, not a remake, and on home consoles. Also, he stated that announcements about titles will be more frequent and often possibly signaling a true change in marketing and promotion that the company has employed.

    The game's not a remake, it seems. And since Final Fantasy XV has already been announced, it's not that. So what could it be? If this Japanese game magazine leak is true, we'll know soon enough.

    According to a supposed early Famitsu leak (via CS Blog), Square Enix president Yosuke Matsuda apparently mentioned that the Tokyo-based game company was working a new role-playing game for home consoles. In Japanese, the word Matsuda apparently used was "kateiyou geemuki" (家庭用ゲーム機 - home game console).

    "Actually, right now, we are readying a new role-playing game for home consoles that isn't a remake," Matsuda is quoted as saying. "In December, we'll start with making an announcement."

    There will also be other titles announced in the near future.

    "To avoid misunderstanding, among the forthcoming titles that do not include the home consoles, there are also various games bound for smartphones and PC. There are titles studios outside Japan are developing, too."

    "Starting early next year, I think we'll be announcing various types of titles," Matsuda said. "But at this stage, we cannot say which will be for home consoles or portables."

    Matsuda said that from here on out, we can apparently expect more announcements.

    CS-Blog points out that in December, there is the Jump Festa in Japan, so that could be an ideal time for an announcement. If not then, Square Enix could reveal the game at the PlayStation Experience in early December.
    If SE were involved with the Sony event, I think we would have seen more about it especially from Sony. My bet is Jump Festa or SE doing their own announcement.

    So time to start spinning the wheels of the hope-despair-anger rollercoaster.

    Enix property?
    Square property?
    Original title?
    FFXIII: Lightning Strikes Twice?

    What trademarks has SE filed recently that do not go with items already announced?

    For what it's worth, Matsuda was involved in the production of FF6 and Thief (2014), and served as Executive Producer on Unlimited SaGa.

    Finalist Fantasy. It will get them making money again, spawn a series where people argue which one is the best (it's almost always the one you played first), and then start to fizzle out about number thirteen when too many get announced, become uninteresting sequels, and one lingers for far too long.

    Dare to dream.

    Gonna guess maybe a new Dragon Quest? Or maybe even a brand new series? FFXV and KH3 have been announced already. And I kind of doubt it'll be FFXVI or KH4 or etc

    Wont matter, it will transform from what ever they announce today, to it's final form 10 years from now when it finally get's released.

    The "Final" in Final Fantasy really stands for FINALLY IT'S OUT

    On a serious note: Final Fantasy Type-1?
    I haven't played Type-0 yet, but seeing people loving it on this forum, it wouldn't surprise me. And that could also explain why Type-0 is getting a release on PS4 instead of the Vita? Granted with remote play you can play it on the Vita anyway, but still.

    And don't fucking toy with my heartstrings throwing out Dissidia 3 or a real Final Fantasy Tactics sequel. A new Tactics Ogre? Not gonna lie, I'd play the fuck out of a Mario Party style FF game if I could play with friends online.

    When you play Type-0 you will understand why Type-1 does not make sense.

    You wouldn't know that though because you've demonstrably never picked up a book nor educated yourself on the matter. Let me guess, overweight housewife?
