Secret Square-Enix Game Wasn't Widely "Requested"
Oh, it's sad all right. So sad, in fact, that I'm having difficulty fighting back the tears. ...oh wait, no I'm not, because I knew it was too good to be true.
Just after Christmas, we learned of Square-Enix's supposed secret game announcement, and the reason it gained such immense attention is because it was supposed to be something "everyone had requested." Unfortunately, this was due to a poor insider tip given to RPG Land, who now apologizes by saying their typically reliable inside source must've failed to actually read the interview in question. The Gamega interview with Square-Enix executive Tetsuya Nomura does include the fact that a secret game - set to be announced this year - is indeed in the works, but as for "journalists and gamers" always requesting it...um, that's not in there. Well, at least they're owning up to the oversight and besides, we still have this "secret title." Sadly, it now seems less likely to be Kingdom Hearts 3 or the oft-rumored Final Fantasy VII remake but we won't give up hope just yet. So long as we know nothing about this project, that hope still hangs on by a thread... Just don't let it be some terrible spin-off, please.
I know you're disappointed but it seems more and more like the FFVII remake is like the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. We're gonna have to catch a leprechaun if we ever want to nab it.
