Square Enix has pulled the shroud of mystery off their E3 lineup, which surprisingly includes a few non-Final Fantasy related titles.
The Japanese RPG-centric game makers are broadening their horizons and expanding their portfolio to include a couple RTS (Order of War, Supreme Commander 2), shooter (Front Mission Evolved) and action-adventure (Nier) titles in an effort to capture those elusive American dollars. But don’t worry, they haven’t forgotten who butters their bread – the androgynous angst-ridden, sword-wielding boy heroes. In addition to the new titles, there are a bevy of Final Fantasy sequels, spin-offs and tie-ins fattening the ranks, including Final Fantasy XIII (PS3/X360), Dissidia Final Fantasy (PSP), Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days (PSP), Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers (Wii), Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life As A Darklord (Wii) and Final Fantasy IV: The After Years (Wii).
Yoichi Wada has bills to pay too, you know.
