At the CESA Developers Conference in Yokohama yesterday they revealed that tech to be the “Luminous” engine.

Last Remnant May Be Coming to the PS3

Square Enix announced The Last Remnant for both the Xbox 360 and the PS3 back in 2008. But the game was only published for the Xbox 360 and recently ported over to the PC. Since then, the PS3 version never came and ultimately never heard of again. But there is a small glimmer of hope; Amazon Japan has listed The Last Remnant for the PS3. Don't get too hyped up fanboys and fangirls! Square Enix has not confirmed anything yet, so this might be shot down in a matter of days. Also, Amazon is not taking any pre-orders so don't bother taking out your credit card just yet. Read More

Rumor: The Last Remnant for PlayStation 3 Possibly Canceled?

The Last Remnant may have seen its last hope for a PlayStation 3 release quietly fade away, as the newest issue of the retail promotional "Square Enix Magazine," volume 13, does not show the title on its upcoming release calendar. "A release calendar in the back of the issue lists titles of note from the company and its publishing/distribution partners (Ubisoft, Disney, and Taito)," notes Andriasang. "Last Remnant 2 is not listed in the date TBA area, which includes such games as The Third Birthday, NieR Gestalt/Replicant, and Front Mission Evolved." Despite this, however, The Last Remnant still appears on the PS3 release calendar on Square Enix's website, as well as the release calendar of the latest Weekly Famitsu. As such, there may still be hope, especially as Andriasang is currently unable to verify whether or not the title was even showing up in prior issues of Square Enix's magazine. Read More

Square Enix Finds Xbox 360 "Easier to Work With"

For some time, Square Enix has been thought of as something of an ally to Sony, publishing many of their biggest titles, such as Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest, on platforms which carry the PlayStation brand. However, Microsoft has been making great inroads lately to offer a greater variety of RPGs -- Square Enix's bread and butter. And just this past July, they rocked the gaming world by revealing that they would be making the next installment of Final Fantasy a multiplatform affair, releasing it in the West on the Xbox 360.

Square-Enix Announces The Last Remnant DLC

The Last Remnant just came out last week but that doesn't mean that Square-Enix is done with adding stuff to the game. All next month you'll be able to download yourself a handful of add-ons to the game and surprisingly enough, if you want to get them all you'll only have to spend 100 Microsoft points. Wait... isn't this the same company that charged Wii owners for every tiny little thing added to My Life as a King? The first two free packs, Challenge Pack 1: "Purgatory's Sins" and "The Key of Ancient Ruins" will be release on December first, with the former containing a new set of difficult guild challenges and the latter introducing a new area to explore. Then December 15th sees the release of the "March to War" set, which is the three special pre-order formations for 100 MS points. Finally, on December 22nd they release Challenge Pack 2: "The Price Of Lies", which is as free as the first one. Note that all of these dates are for gold Xbox Live Members, with silver members getting access a week later. -- Kotaku Even though the reviews have been so-so I still think I'm going to be checking out The Last Remnant. Like a million other kids out there with spiky hair, I have a small place in my heart for a good JRPG. It doesn't have to be great, it just needs to have a troubled youth who goes on a quest, falls in love with an exiled princess, and saves the world from a bunch of dudes with crazy hair and tattoos. I have a feeling that I will like this game and just about any other JRPG released in the past 10 years. Read More

Square Enix Developer Confident in Xbox 360's Growth in Japan

Microsoft got off to a shaky start in Japan with the original Xbox, but have begun to make great strides in establishing itself with the Xbox 360. And while it may have a way to go yet, there is confidence that it will continue to grow in the Japanese gaming market, including the confidence of Square Enix's Shinji Hashimoto:We expect the Xbox 360 to increase its Japanese market presence even more in the coming months. There is a growing interest in Xbox 360 among Japanese users, due to the release of familiar titles, the increasing appeal of overseas titles, and the excellent reputation of the Xbox 360's network services. -- Shinji Hashimoto, to Edge OnlineHowever, as is clear by their choice to decline bringing Final Fantasy XIII to the Xbox 360 in Japan, they are not putting all of their eggs into one basket:Square Enix develops its titles for users all around the world. We would not make decisions regarding hardware based solely on the Japanese user base. [Star Ocean 4, Last Remnant and Infinite Undiscovery] were developed with the global market in mind, so by releasing them on the Xbox 360, which enjoys a high market share in the United States and Europe, we are hoping to gain more recognition from this large user base. -- Shinji Hashimoto, to Edge OnlineAs the article notes, though, Microsoft will probably not be left wanting for a challenge in further establishing themselves in Japan, as there is still a limited interest in Western games, and not many consumers are exploring 360 titles beyond those which initially spurred their decision to purchase the unit.
