Square Enix To Rely More On Foreign Markets

50°
364w ago - Within five years, the RPG maker wants three out of every four dollars it earns to come from outside Japan.

Last week the Financial Times said Japanese role-playing game publisher Square Enix is looking for publishing allies in the US and Europe to help boost the amount of revenues it derives from foreign markets. According to the article, foreign sales accounted for no more than 20 percent of the company's revenues, and the Final Fantasy publisher was hoping to make it 50 percent within three years.

Square Enix president Yoichi Wada today issued a statement contradicting that report. He said that the company already gets half of its revenues internationally, and wants to boost that even more.

"It is crucial for us to expand our businesses on a global basis," Wada said. "Given the fact that the size of overseas markets is now more than three times as large as the domestic market, we recognize numerous growth opportunities. Our strategy to seize such opportunities is two-fold; (i) strengthen our own distribution channels developed by our local subsidiaries in these geographic areas, and (ii) diversify our content in accordance with user preferences in each area.

365w ago - As widely anticipated, Japanese publisher and developer Square Enix has confirmed a number of new Kingdom Hearts titles at the Tokyo Game Show, including new entries in the series for the Nintendo DS, Sony's PSP and mobile phones.

There has been considerable press speculation regarding a possible announcement and target platform for Kingdom Hearts III, with the franchise now one of Square Enix's most lucrative in both Japan and North America. Ultimately, the company made no announcements of a direct sequel, or indeed, any franchise additions for consoles, but instead focused on new titles for portable formats.
 

Square Enix Says FFVII Remake Could Still Happen

50°
367w ago - Fans of Square Enix's Final Fantasy series have been pining for a remake of the classic Final Fantasy VII since before the game's E3 2005 tech demo. And so far, Square brass has been fairly quiet on the idea of it becoming a reality.

Though, as Famitsu points out (via PlayStation Universe), they are very aware of consumer interest. Crisis Core producer Hideki Imaizumi said in an interview to the Japanese magazine that though fans clearly want it, it's a question of timing. The three most likely to work on such a project -- Kitase, Nomura and Tabata -- are too busy with Final Fantasy XIII.

Imaizumi did make clear there's no current plans for a remake, but pointed out some decisions are made quickly. He added that a new game is to be shown at the upcoming Tokyo Game Show, taking place from September 20-23.

No doubt this new game is another part of Square Enix's masterful plan to keep developers too busy to re-render Cloud's ridiculous sword.
