Square Enix Has Big Things Planned For E3

SquareEnix

Square Enix gave a hint of what they’re planning for their E3 press conference at their recent results briefing. It appears that along with rebooting existing IP, we can expect to see new IP created and more collaborations.

We already know about quite a few titles coming from Square Enix. To name a few, there’s Final Fantasy XV, Kingdom Hearts 3, Just Cause 3, Bravely Default 2, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and quite a bit more. To think they have even more games they still haven’t announced is pretty crazy. Anyways see what they said after the jump.

Strengthening and rebooting existing IPs

“We would like to focus on how to utilize the numerous assets of content that we have nurtured so far, and apply them to the latest trend. As for the platform, we would like to use consoles and smart devices in parallel. Just focusing on one platform is not enough. We believe it is significant to serve both platforms, if we are to offer game content and services that appeal to the new generation.”

Collaborating with partner companies

“With so much changes going on in the market, we will suffer a big opportunity loss if we try to do everything all by ourselves. Through collaboration, we will utilize the strengths of other companies which we ourselves lack, and grow the size of the business. A good example is Dragon Quest Heroes. So far, we had not worked on a full-scale action RPG. However, we were able to create a new style for Dragon Quest through collaboration with Koei Tecmo Games. Based on this success, we want to collaborate more with partner companies, both in and out of Japan.”
