I've heard a lot of news and rumors in the past week concerning Square-Enix's commitment to Nintendo. Square-Enix characters in upcoming Mario Hoops 3 on 3 Square-Enix is developing Nintendo's upcomming basketball game. Looks like they are including characters from their popular Final Fantasy series in the game. Notably a Ninja, a White Mage, Black Mage, a Cactuar and a Moogle. More to come? I can't read japanese. too bad, I would have loved to know the characters' special shots. The Squeenix characters Limited edition Final Fantasy DS Lite in Japan Nintendo his releasing a limited edition Final Fantasy III DS Lite (Japan Only). The FF3 DS Lite FFIII DS Gameplay Footage Dragon Quest IX to be Wii exclusive? This could have a huge impact on the Japanese market. (PS3 vs Wii) Dragon Quest is huge in Japan. (More popular than Final Fantasy?) Many Square-Enix games in development exclusivley for Nintendo platforms - Earthbound (Mother) compilation (Rumored)[DS] - MMO Mana game (Rumored) [Wii] - Children of Mana [DS] - Dragon Quest DS Joker [DS] - Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime [DS] - Dragon Quest IX (Rumored) [Wii] - Dragon Quest Swords: The Masked Queen and the Tower of Mirrors [Wii] - Finbal Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers [Wii] - Finbal Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Ring of Fates[DS] - Finbal Fantasy III [DS] (this list doesn't iclude the Japan only releases or the GBA ports) Better commitment from Square-Enix to Nintendo is good news to me because, even though I'm a big Playstation fan, I probably won't be purchasing the PS3 until the first price drop. The PS3 is sweet but expensive. Plus, it looks like the Wii willbe getting more RPGs than the Gamecube did.
