Square-Enix Might Announce "Shocking RPG" Before E3
We know about Final Fantasy Versus XIII and we've long since given up hope on a Final Fantasy VII remake, so what might this new RPG be...?
If you haven't heard, there have been some Twitter updates that have turned the head of many a role-playing aficionado. The first comes from Square-Enix PR lady Sonia Im, where she says there's an "unannounced game" in the works that is bound to "shock" everyone. The cryptic update ends with, "You'll never guess what it is," which of course means everyone is guessing. And you know, the unveiling may be coming a lot sooner than anticipated: after seeing this, we didn't expect any sort of official announcement even at E3 (just seems too soon), but in fact, Square-Enix might lift the lid on this project very soon. Square-Enix producer David Hoffman has said he's trying to get it announced "before E3." All right, so what's your best guess? We have yet to see the Final Fantasy Versus XIII media blowout we were promised - it was supposed to have arrived in "early 2010" - so it might be that, but the title has obviously been announced. Perhaps good money is on Kingdom Hearts 3, although we could always hope for Vagrant Story 2...yeah, that'd be a futile dream.
Square-Enix could use a shot in the arm these days. And if this mystery game is big enough, it might just have the intended impact.
