The game’s not a remake, it seems. And since Final Fantasy XV has already been announced, it’s not that. So what could it be? If this Japanese game magazine leak is true, we’ll know soon enough.
According to a supposed early Famitsu leak (via CS Blog), Square Enix president Yosuke Matsuda apparently mentioned that the Tokyo-based game company was working a new role-playing game for home consoles. In Japanese, the word Matsuda apparently used was “kateiyou geemuki” (家庭用ゲーム機).
“Actually, right now, we are readying a new role-playing game for home consoles that isn’t a remake,” Matsuda is quoted as saying. “In December, we’ll start with making an announcement.”
There will also be other titles announced in the near future.
“To avoid misunderstanding, among the forthcoming titles that do not include the home consoles, there are also various games bound for smartphones and PC. There are titles studios outside Japan are developing too.”
“Starting early next year, I think we’ll be announcing various types of titles,” Matsuda said. “But at this stage, we cannot say which will be for home consoles or portables.”
Matsuda said that from here on out, we can apparently expect more announcements.
CS-Blog points out that in December, there is the Jump Festa in Japan, so that could be an ideal time for an announcement. If not then, Square Enix could reveal the game at the PlayStation Experience in early December.
If the leak is true, the interview will appear in this week’s Famitsu. Kotaku will confirm once we have the magazine.
