    Square Enix still has quite a few releases before the end of their FY which would be the end of March 2022. It will be interesting to see if DQX Offline gets a release in the West (so far, no indication of such plans)

    Kawazu effectively saying that SaGa team has a remaster, a remake and a new game in the works. I imagine all will be on Sony and Nintendo platforms as well as PC.

    I've heard Switch port of True Colors is amazing so Switch delay isn't bad per se.

    200,000 shipped in Japan and 800,000 shipped worldwide is impressive for any SRPG. Congrats to Team Asano.

    PS5 and Xbox Series seem like obvious platforms. PC is also likely. Should we also expect Drake/Switch 2/Switch successor if this game launches around 2025?

    Square Enix keeps the Just Cause, Outriders and Life Is Strange IPs but sells Tomb Raider, Deus Ex, and Legacy of Kain among others. Sale of western studios was expected (these were big money pits), the low price Embracer got was a little unexpected.

    Probably a Nintendo SKU wouldn't have changed this outcome. I feel for the developers who have shared this information with us. (I'll include their .pdf when I post the full FY financial results for Square Enix since it wouldn't be complete without this information)

    EDIT: People Can Fly are developing Project Gemini, an AAA game for Square Enix expected to be completed by 2024.

    Treasures and DQX will release later this year. New trailer for DQ Treasures, with more infos next month.

    Horii mentioned that they're "working hard on DQXII". No mention at all of DQIII remake, sounds like it's not coming until next year. Same for Dai.

    2022: DQX and Treasures
    2023: DQIII and Dai
    2024: DQXII?

    DQ Builders out on mobile already

    Nice to see Builders brand extending to mobile.

    First SaGa game to be on PS5 I believe. This is a remaster of the PS2 remake of Romancing SaGa 1, which was a Super Famicom game.

    I'm eating crow today because I never thought this would happen. Probably gonna be a Day 1 for me. The Digital Foundary video should be very illuminating.
