During a recent interview with Nikkei Trendy, SQUARE ENIX CEO Yosuke Matsuda teased a “considerable amount of high-end games” for the company’s fiscal 2015. Most notably was a JRPG “surprise.”
For fiscal 2015, I think we have a considerable amount of high-end games both inside and outside the country. Starting with Final Fantasy XV, we’ll be putting out news for Japanese RPGs. I think we’ll have a little surprise, too […] a JRPG for home game machine(s).
SQUARE ENIX’s goal for fiscal 2015 is to deliver a “box of surprises” with both the Japanese and Western studios looking to bolster their line-ups “considerably.”
With FINAL FANTASY Type-0 HD being released, FINAL FANTASY XIV: Heavensward having a launch date and, more and more information coming to light regarding FINAL FANTASY XV, it will be interesting to see what this “surprise” will be. Hopefully we won’t have to wait several years before we get to play it!
