  • NEWS: A recent financial briefing from Square-Enix has given insight into the company’s forward moving policy. The publisher will be focusing on releasing more sequels, faster, to best selling franchises, as they feel that waiting too long fails to economically use existing engines and assets, and lets the franchise drift from the minds of gamers as they move on to other projects. The publisher will also be exploring console-like experiences for smartphone devices. Sequels to Tomb Raider, Hitman, and Sleeping Dogs were implied, as the investment into each game broke even.
  • VIDEO: Folk are reporting that after over a decade, fans have discovered an entirely new side quest in Final Fantasy IX. You can watch the discovery below.
