“SEGA Is More Open To New RPGs Than Square Enix”

Japanese game maker tri-Ace is famous for its Square Enix published games. Titles like the Star Ocean series and the Valkyrie Profile games have cemented tri-Ace’s reputation.

But tri-Ace’s upcoming role-playing-game End of Eternity is being published by SEGA, not Square Enix.

Explains tri-Ace developer and EoE director Takayuki Suguro, “Because SEGA has a more open attitude towards accepting new RPG ideas than Square Enix, we’d decided to have SEGA release End of Eternity.” Previously, Suguro worked on Square Enix titles Vagrant Story and Final Fantasy Tactics

The multi-platform End of Eternity is set in a future where mankind near extinction due to environmental changes. EoE is slated for release late in 2009.

  • Sega’s always went for it, they’re always keen to give things a new try. Seriously, look at the range of games Sega did for the Megadrive compared to what Nintendo did with the SNES, sure Nintendo had bigger success with their big name games, but Sega took more of a risk and tried alot of things out.
