Final Fantasy Type-0

A couple of days ago it was announced that the fan translation of Final Fantasy Type-0, under the name of Operation Doomtrain, has reached the final state and can now be played by everybody. Started by Sky back on 1 January 2013 it was a reaction to Square Enix's decision to not release it in the West due to market reasons.

On the American PlayStation.Blog, Sakura Minamida, senior product manager at Square Enix, said the following:

I’d like to start this out by thanking everyone who let us know how badly you wanted this game to come to North America. Ever since the original PlayStation Portable release in Japan, you guys have never given up on it, raising your voices in an effort to see this title come to North America and Europe. Well, I’m here to tell you that it’s coming and it’s going to be in HD.

Stay tuned for more details in the future.

Final Fantasy XV

During a recent interview by Famitsu, Shinji Hashimoto, producer at Square Enix, said that they will release no new information of Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts III, which are currently in development for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, at next week's E3 2014.

When Famitsu asked if there will be information of Final Fantasy XV, Hashimoto replied with the following:

Well, first I’d like to say that development for FFXV is going well. Internally, we try to ascertain the best timing for revealing new information about FFXV to the fans. So when we were going over our promotion plans, we judged that this year’s E3 would not be the best time to exhibit information about FFXV. Instead we are currently planning to exhibit new information at events after E3 2014. I am extremely grateful to all the fans who excitedly anticipate FFXV, and I’m looking forward to share new information when the timing is right. I would appreciate if fans hold out until then.

About Kingdom Hearts III, Hashimoto said the following:

We are are working diligently on KH3, but I think releasing new information will still take some time. We included a small part regarding the story of KH3 In the new trailer KH 2.5 prepared for E3 2014, so please check that out.

Anyone surprised? It's dissapointing, but was kinda expected.

Square Enix

Sony Computer Entertainment has announced today that they are selling all their 9,520,000 Square Enix shares to a company called SMBC Nikko Securities. This will generate an income of 15.3 billion yen, around $ 150 million USD / € 108 million which will be marked down Sony's financial report for the year ending 31st March 2015. 

Sony is lately in severe financial weather and this is a financial boost for the company. This marks the seperation of a long partnership that resulted in a strong presence of the Final Fantasy series on PlayStation hardware over the years.

What the exact reason is for the sale is unknown.

17-04 Update: Sale price was incorrect and has been updated after Sony's announcement.
