Square Enix

A Japanese developer and publisher of Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, Kingdom Hearts, and others

Square Enix

Square Enix is multinational corporation active in several areas of the entertainment industry. In games, Square Enix produces an array of high profile titles, including Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, and Kingdom Hearts, as well as Taito franchises like Space Invaders and Bubble Bobble. In addition, Square Enix has several film, anime, online, and mobile phone properties.

Square Enix was formed as the result of a merger between Square Co. and Enix. A disastrous foray into the box office industry (see Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within) left Square financially crippled. Though its revenues were smaller, Enix was able to absorb a much weakened Square on April 1, 2003. Square stockholders received .85 shares of stock in the new company while those of Enix received a one-to-one trade. However, many top Square officials assumed leadership roles in the new corporate hierarchy, including Square president Yoichi Wada, appointed president and overlord of the new corporate entity.

In the face of rapidly declining Japanese market share in the lucrative western games market1, Square Enix acquired Tomb Raider publisher Eidos in 20092.

While there are no new Final Fantasy games shown at this year's E3, Square Enix did reveal a trailer called "Agni's Philosophy" that demonstrates the Luminous Studio engine, next-gen tech that can, according to a press release1, "depict high quality 'real time computer graphics' at the same level as 'pre-rendered computer graphics'. The fine details of the characters, who express life-like humanity, are showcased through their rich facial expressions, subtleties of their pupils and hair, and their brilliantly flowing garments."

Square Enix's Latest Desperate Attempt to Lure People into Final Fantasy XIV

BlogFinal Fantasy XIV didn't get off to a great start. The game was launched on PC to little/no fanfare. In fact gamers reported so many problems and issues that Hiromichi Tanaka resigned as producer along with a number of other staff changes1. Now that Square Enix have spent time re-designing and re-working the game - they want people to give them money. Read on

Siliconera has discovered a trademark registration and domain name claim by Square Enix for "Chrono Bind". I need to lie down. Square Enix is trolling gamers worldwide by registering a domain name and trademark starting with "Chrono" when in reality it's just a stupid minigame in FFXIII-2. Fuck you Square Enix.
