Square-Enix Preparing To "Shock" Final Fantasy Fans
We all know about Final Fantasy XIII coming to the Xbox 360, so we're not going to continue to beat a dead horse from every possible angle. But damnit, Square-Enix loves to tease, and every time they have done so in the past, the results for PS3 owners have been disappointing. Will they disappoint us again next month?
We heard some time ago that the veteran RPG publisher is preparing a big FFVII-related announcement, and we can expect to hear it at their private DKΣ3713 event in Japan in August. However, here's another angle from a quote from Square-Enix's Shinji Hashimoto-
"You can look forward to the upcoming invite-only fan event DKΣ3713, where we'll have a major announcement that will shock the fans in attendance."
Oh, so now it's going to "shock" us? We knew going into E3 that Square-Enix wasn't about to make this announcement until next month, so we weren't surprised when nothing FF-related made an appearance during Sony's press conference. But we're starting to wonder...if it's in regards to FFVII and it has nothing to do with "Advent Children Complete," what exactly is it? Are we continually misinterpreting this tease, or what? We're officially tensing for August's unveiling, whatever it might be.
