Someone from SE NA claims SE has many secret projects (and more stuff)

I thought you would be interested in seeing this but Karl Stewart, who is vicepresident of strategic marketing at Square NA/EU, claims to have checked Square's portfolio during the last weeks and seen many ''super secret games'' in the list.

Just spent the last few weeks getting a deep deep deep understanding of the Square Enix portfolio.DAMN we have some great games....

...from @thief to Final Fantasy, to @KINGDOMHEARTS and many super secret ones, and of course not forgetting @tombraider!! Exciting times.


And not only that, but the Twitter account SQEX_EVENTS is hinting at something more apart from trailers and games at E3:

Oh! Of course, E3! Blueprints, game kiosks, check. Fancy trailers, checkity-check. Looks exciting! Wait...what is that? A new addition?


Hmmm, I know there's a booth involved. Maybe some construction. We're going to show games and trailers...but wait there's more!?!


Still trying to figure out that big show coming up... Eh, in the mean time I'll just go to Adobe MAX. Friends always put on the best shows.


Just in time too! There's some big event happening soon. What could it be...


Not getting my hopes about it but considering how big is currently Square's catalog of games it looks like he's impling there will be another conference.

The 4th Birthday/Parasite Eve 3, Final Fantasy Type-0 in English, Parasite Eve for PAL regions. If I they announced to me these three... :D :D :D

^ Yeah, it would be so amazing if they decided to show those games and also KH 3. There's an insider called Aryllies in FF Versus' board who has commented that they started development on KH 3 at the end of last year and he seems to be very reliable given that he was right about Bravely Default being localized. He doesn't know if it will be also for PS4 though

Also, all the information he shared makes a lot of sense, and it coincides with Xeedragon's information. Not to mention that Square started hiring people for the Luminous Engine last January:

Oh God if it happens I'll be so surprised I'd have a hard time believing it.

It's called the "Post incredibly vague hints to generate outrageous hype for next generic button mashing tunnel-vision dungeon crawler that people will pay for because some female character shows a bit of side boob in a overly foggy shower scene for three seconds." technique. History proves it effective because it very sadly works. Enjoy final Fantasy 13 Agito Versus Deathmatch Uber Hyper (*insert newly made up word here, probably Porgitonimousitability*) and a half squared by its root power, 2.5...and yes, that is the game plan. New characters include a vacuum that never works and a worm with gender identification issues that can dual wield Laser Gunblades, probably named Bob.

Don't get your hopes up. It won't be another PE game and I bet Toriyama would send it down the path of ruination like he has with any IP he's been given.

I forgot to put this but David Gibson, an analyst, has claimed that Square Enix is going to have their own conference at E3, which means there could be a small possibility that we see it at E3, if that's not the case we won't see until TGS.:

Square Enix planning E3 presentation to make line up clearer. Doing own portfolio of titles review in each region


And an user called Xeedragon commented in this board that SE had delayed Parasite Eve 3 due to SE's backlog of games. What Karl Stewart said shows he wasn't lying.

Not to mention that T3B's secret ending shows this game is non-canon:
Aya is dead and wandering as a ghost. Tabata commented before that they wanted to focus on Aya's story, which contradicts what the secret ending reveals

I think we'd be better off drawing a line under anything written by Toriyama and just removing it from reality(except FFX, I refuse to believe he did anything meaningful with that game though). It just feels like SE is avoiding anything that isn't titled Final Fantasy. I'm probably wrong but we're lucky that DQ is still being made even though it's Nintendo that has to publish it over seas. So many franchises but I feel PE would be practically at the bottom of the list when it comes to old franchises making a come back.

I am disregarding anything made by Eidos btw. They make good games but sadly SE has impossible expectations when it comes to the sales.

If it is unrelated to SE's bigger successes (i.e., FF, KH, and DQ to a lesser extent), I feel there will be little chance of seeing any game.

However, since SE is venturing more into mobile gaming, we may see something on a smart phone and a tablet. Those platforms appear to be more profitable compared to portables and home consoles.

I think there could be a possibility that PE 3 will be for consoles. Given that Square Enix hasn't cancelled those two unannounced A-RPG that are new IPs according to Aryllies (who seems to be a very reliable user), if PE 3 is being developed currently then it's more likely to see it being for home/ handheld consoles.

Moreover Square Enix has taken the decision to spend less money on technology, which means their future titles will have smaller budgets. If that is the case with PE3 the chances of seeing it being developed will be bigger.

Now SQEX_EVENTS has made the following comment, which could be more related to FF Versus than a separate conference:

E3 Booth near completion! A whirlwind of E3 anticipation! Yet in the eye of the hurricane lies something big...The teasing will end soon


I have realized that comment from Gibson is a bit vague so I could be wrong when I said that SE might be preparing their own conference at E3, although they have those two unknown A-RPGs to show and also any secret game that Eidos want to show.
