Square Enix is apparently revealing an unannounced Wii U game at PAX East which takes place from March 22nd to March 24th. The publisher mentioned that they were showing off an unannounced Wii U game in an invite they sent out to press publications. Australian developer Straight Right has been rumoured to be working on a Square Enix port of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, so perhaps it is that.

Square Enix and Nintendo have released the first pack shot of the Dragon Quest X Wii U Premium Bundle which is due for release in Japan when the game launches on March 30th. You can watch the latest trailer for the long-awaited game, here.
Square Enix has released a brand new trailer showcasing the enhanced visuals of Dragon Quest X on Wii U. As we found out earlier today, there are a number of people struggling to gain access to the Dragon Quest X beta due to a problematic error code. Dragon Quest X is already available in Japan for Wii and launches for Wii U on March 30th.
Square Enix has resubmitted Deus Ex: Human Revolution for classification with the Australian Classification Board. The listing which was submitted on March 1st says that the version is modified. We already know that Australian developer Straight Right is busy developing a major unnamed Wii U game based on a Square Enix franchise, so this could be it. Would you purchase Deus Ex: Human Revolution which came out on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC in 2011?
The official Bravely Default: Flying Fairy Twitter team has hinted once again that they are looking at bringing the acclaimed Bravely Default: Flying Fairy to the West. The team say that they have had a lot of comments regarding localisation and it is something they are considering. Bravely Default: Flying Fairy launched in Japan in October 2012 and received an overall score of 38/40 by Famitsu.
There is very much comment from overseas one! I do my best to have all of you play!
Square Enix apparently notices the demand by Western consumers for Nintendo 3DS-exclusive Bravely Default: Flying Fairy, which launched last year in Japan. Via the official Twitter account for the role-playing game, the company is supposedly hinting that it will eventually come to the West, by saying it hears the ‘foreigners’ – people outside of Japan, in this case – requesting Bravely Default: Flying Fairy. Here’s hoping the game does in fact release in the West.
The Bravely Default: Flying Fairy Twitter team say that they have heard the fans pleas for the game to be localised. The acclaimed role-playing game was released in Japan during October 2012, but we’ve yet to hear word from Square Enix regarding a Western release for the game. Let’s hope we hear something soon.

Famitsu has announced that Dragon Quest VII: Warriors of Eden for the Nintendo 3DS has shipped over one million units since it went on sale on February 7th in Japan. The original version of Dragon Quest VII for the PlayStation One shifted a total of over 4.1 million units in Japan. Square Enix has yet to announce whether the remake will be coming to the West.
Square Enix is now in the red after the company failed to meet sales expectations for the period of April to December 2012. The blame is partly thought to lay with the company’s Dragon Quest X which is currently available on Wii in Japan. MSN Japan says that sales of the game have failed to meet the company’s expectations. However, Square Enix says that sales of Dragon Quest X are making steady progress. Dragon Quest X comes out on Wii U in Japan next month.
“The slump is reportedly down to the company’s new online RPG venture, Dragon Quest X,” reports MSN. “While the disappointing financial turn for the company can be partially attributed to the burden of running the new online service, it is also down to game sales not meeting expectations. The Wii (and soon to be Wii U) game is however, making ‘steady progress’ according to Square Enix.
