Countdown To Square-Enix's New Game: What Is It?
Okay, but before we begin, just get the idea of a Final Fantasy VII remake out of your heads. Seriously. That's not what this is.
But the million-dollar question is: what is it? Square-Enix is counting down to a new game announcement and as you can see, there are just over 227 hours left to wait. There's also a number 4 and a hand-drawn scene that appears to be a quaint natural landscape with a river or stream running down the middle. This leads us to believe it's another RPG, but it's the "4" that is causing problems for those who wish to hazard a guess. What has Square-Enix made three of...? We've been waiting for Kingdom Hearts 3 and we're pretty certain we didn't miss it, they never did any sequels to certain IPs like Vagrant Story, and even if Legend of Mana could be considered a loose sequel to Secret of Mana, there were still only two such titles. It really can't be Final Fantasy, of course...unless it's Final Fantasy Tactics. Technically, we had the original on the PlayStation, the one for the GBA, and the remake of the original for the PSP, The Lion War. So that's kinda three. Anyone else have any ideas as to what it could be? What is Square-Enix working on that would have a "4" in the title?
Well, we've got about nine and a half days to wait, so get your thinking caps on. It could very well be a game for the DS or Wii or something, which means if it's revealed, we won't be telling you about it here. But let's just hope it comes to a Sony platform, whatever it turns out to be.
