E3: Square Enix Teases With iPhone News Promise

If you’re an iPhone gamer then you’ll be really, really excited to hear what Final Fantasy developer, Square Enix, has up its sleeve for introduction at next week’s E3 Expo.

In development since last year expectation is high for the game, though we know almost nothing about it.

Square Enix has already taken big steps into the iPhone arena, introducing nine titles for the platform, including ports of Final Fantasy I and II and Chaos Rings, but has been muttering about a tenth title to rule them all.

The move to mobile makes absolute sense for a company whose CEO, Yoichi Wada, last year warned us that in a decade a lot of what we call ‘console games’ won’t exist.”

“In the past the platform was hardware, but it has switched to the network… A time will come when the hardware isn’t even needed anymore,” he told MCV. He anticipates more server-based offerings, game streaming and digital distribution, a la the App Store.
