If you are a fan of the Kingdom Hearts franchise then you may want to take some time out to participate in a brand new survey from Square Enix regarding the series. It shouldn’t take too long to complete and is a good way to make your voice be heard over at Square Enix, as we haven’t had a new Kingdom Hearts game on the Nintendo 3DS for a while. Here’s the link to the short survey.
Square Enix has announced that it is partnering up with IGN to promote a top secret game from the company. IGN says that they currently have no idea what this secret project is, but it does seem odd that they are holding back this title considering they have their own E3 press event during which they could show off the secret project. Any guesses as to what it might be?
While the actual E3 convention is always exploding to the brim with news, oftentimes the weeks leading up to the big event are rife with big announcements and surprises! During a recent financial report briefing, acclaimed developer/publisher Square Enix has announced plans to unveil two new games during E3 next month in an attempt to strengthen and reboot their existing IPs.
The news comes on the heels of the recent announcements of a Dragon Quest 8 port for 3DS, and Dragon Quest Heroes II and Star Ocean 5 for the Playstation family. The news has prompted fans to roll out their wish lists regarding the games they want to see Square Enix unveil at E3! What IPs do you want Square Enix to bring out? Vagrant Story reboot, anyone?
We kinda already knew it was coming thanks to hints yesterday from Bravely Default producer, Tomoya Asano, but it now seems certain that Bravely Second will be coming to Europe. Developer and publisher Square Enix has trademarked Bravely Second in Europe which pretty much confirms it is coming to the west. Bravely Second is likely to be showcased at Square Enix or Nintendo’s Digital Event, both of which take place on June 16th.
Tomoya Asano, the series producer behind the well-received Bravely Second, has confirmed to Siliconera that they’re busy preparing the game for a western release. No doubt they’ve been working on it for some time so it is bound to show up at Square Enix’s E3 press conference which takes place on Tuesday, June 16th.
“According to Asano, they have no plans for a For the Sequel version for Bravely Second, or anything of the sort. He states that, at the moment, they’re only thinking about the Western version of Bravely Second.”
We were all kinda excited to learn that Square Enix is bringing the PlayStation 2 classic Dragon Quest VIII to the Nintendo 3DS. Now it turns out that the game won’t feature the 3D we had all been hoping for on the remastered Nintendo 3DS version. Dragon Quest VIII has only been confirmed for release in Japan at present. If we are going to hear anything about localization then it’s likely we would hear about it during Square Enix’s E3 presentation next month.
Square Enix have budged their E3 Press Conference ahead an hour, and will now be at 10am PDT instead of 9am PDT on June 16th. I’m going to take a guess and say it’s probably because they clashed with Nintendo’s Digital Event, and didn’t want fans of both to be split between them. So, now we don’t have to choose or try watch them both at the same time! Nintendo’s Digital Event is at 9am PDT/12pm EST/11am CT/6pm CEST/5pm UK and Square Enix’s conference is now an hour later, so mark your calendars.
