"Wada has stepped down and square has posted a massive loss for this fiscal year citing poor sales over seas as the reason for the loss"

Maybe now at last they get the memo that people are losing interest in them and start releasing the games we do care about like Bravely Default

I think this is great news. Hopefully there will be some shake-ups with how they handle Square's IPs. Enix and Eidos franchises are doing well enough. Hopefully some other guys will start directing instead of giving Motomu Toriyama everything to muck up. He damaged Final Fantasy, Parasite Eve, and Front Mission brands. And hopefully the new CEO can manage faster game development.

So instead of using a well known cash cow IP... use a niche IP.

We got a businessman in here guys, watch out!

Or you know, give us FF type 0 instead of All the bravest, A world Ends With You squal rather than a remake (this was a pretty dam successful ds game so I dont know why they ran from it) and Final Fantasy games that play like final Fantasy games

Except All the Bravest is a huge success. It's one of the highest downloaded games in the App Store.

And anyone who looks at that game would be just insanely stupid to think that it, in any way, affected Type-0's localization chances other than proving how profitable mobile development is. Or that making ATB took time and cost as much as localizing a full fledged RPG.

A world Ends With You squal rather than a remake (this was a pretty dam successful ds game so I dont know why they ran from it)

Pretty darn successful? TWEWY didn't even sell a million copies.

Wada's failure is XIV. Not ATB. Not XIII. Not XIII-2.

People really need to stop trying pretending otherwise.

I remember TWEWY being in the sales chart for AGES so i figured it was pretty successful for a new IP
