Square Enix To Announce More IPs

Square Enix News

Square Enix have been a little bit busy recently. They are prepping up two portable games next month and have revealed a new medieval inspired RPG game that will run on the Unreal Engine. Now, at a financial briefing, Square Enix boss Yochi Wada has revealed that the medieval RPG will not be the only new intellectual property that Square Enix has in mind.

Here is a direct quote from Wada himself,

“Regarding yet unannounced IPs, we should certainly be able to announce 2 to 3 titles to everyone within a few years. With a requirement that an IP has to be capable of making a continuous profit contribution, we are aiming to establish 10 IPs.”

10 IPs? That is quite a lot. But Square Enix is a big publisher, so they might pull it off. However, he did not make it clear whether those 10 IPs include Square Enix’s core IPs: Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, Kingdom Hearts, Tomb Raider, Hitman, and Deus Ex, although I would assume so. Wada also revealed that, due to the success of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, the IP will now expand as a franchise, so expect more games and other merchandising soon.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
