The REAL Xeno games are on PS2/Wii-U AG, and you know that lol. Whats a Xeno title without the real team?

The name Shitan always reminded me of the dark one (Shaitan) from The Wheel of Time series.

its a cash in to get more people interested, that much is clear. Apparently this Figureheads game mech shooter apparently was beta tested in June in japan on PC, and now they are re-doing the beta test with this new version with Xenogears tacted on. Its almost as if Square green lit a mech game again, and half through development had the realization that cross overs have been pretty big in japan so hmmm i what mecha series do we hold the rights to? oh lookie there xenogears! and immediately green lit the cross over between gears and this no name franchise in japan. beta testing starts tomorrow, im sure i'll see every one there. :bs:

They need to get off their ass and give us a new Front Mission already. I'm glad Scars of War got a fan translation, but they've neglected the series for like 10 years now. Evolved doesn't count lol.

@OL just saw your post, Shitan as name in fine, but it was changed for the english release for obvious reasons, but if you go by what they originally called him in japan then Shitan (pronoucned SHE-TAWN/SHEH-TAWN) would be his original name in english as opposed to Citan (SEE-TAWN/SEH-TAWN in english), but I think its just a literal pronunciation of how the japanese speak, their SEH or SEE in english usually ends up being SHEH or SHE in japanese for example the Fal'cie from FFXIII is pronounced FAL SHEE in the japanese trailers and FAL SEE in the english ones. One of those weird language vocal differences, and of course not wanting people to call Citan or "Shitan" SHIT-ANN haha.

And dont get me wrong, i am in no way implying this is Xenogears 2 or will continue the story or have any kind of real relevance or continuince of the first game, in fact its the exact opposite. GET THEM UDDERS READY XENOGEARS!!

Before Square announce anymore games they really need to release the ones they've announced already...FFXV, Kingdom Hearts 3, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided...these are games that people have been waiting for, for a long, looooong time. If they finally get them out first, then announce the Xenogears remake/sequel and rumoured Front Mission game in the works.

Having said that...since Square are in such an IP revival phase at the moment, I'll throw ones in there for Final Fantasy Tactics 2 (only with Matsuno's and Yoshida's involvement) Vagrant Story 2 (again, Matsuno and Yoshida are a must, as is Sakimoto), Parasite Eve (evolve the first game's battle system, ffs, that was one of the best things about that first game) and Bushido Blade, since we need more fresh fighting game experiences like that. Also would like a new Mischief Makers game (Square hold the rights to it, since it's an Enix IP) and get Treasure to develop it again [what even happened to Treasure anyway, they've just... disappeared]. And of course a new Front Mission, that you are so going to announce in the future [-o< . That's my shortlist, Square, you've been awesome enough so far, so carry on.

TBH I have basically given up on square, im sure i'll still buy a new game here and there but they just seem inept about what their fans want (hell the fans might be inept about that too at this point), if they are even considering what the fans want at all. FF15 has been in development for 10 years and still hasnt come out, they didnt release the last dragon quest out side of japan, they have been riding FFXIII and Fabula Crysta Novis games for far too long, they have not supported the Vita the way they had the PSP, so their hand held titles have been shotty at best, just about every category aside from the Eidos games have been a huge mess, I hate to say it but they are almost forgotten.

Welcome to 2016. Pull up a chair.
FFXIII is over and done with. The 3DS remakes of Dragon Quest VII and VIII are being localized. FFXV is nearing completion, has already been made playable in demo form, and is likely coming out this year. FFVII is being remade, after at least a decade of fan requests. Last year Type-0 was finally localized, which is nothing to sneeze at (they recognized their mistake in not bringing over the PSP version, so they made up for it). Kingdom Hearts 3 may not have a concrete release date, but it is apparently far along in development, with English voice recording apparently already completed. A new Star Ocean is set for release next month in Japan (localization has yet to be revealed, but I wouldn't count it out)

Sure, they may not be perfect, but I think the days of people being justified in taking shots at Squenix are a bit past at this particular moment. They're doing a helluva lot of good right now, or at least working toward it.
Good call on the fans being totally bipolar about what they actually want though. Even on the Japan side of things, I'm finding that to be true.

Seems like the last 12 years or so they have been trying to put the pieces back together, and of course I was aware of all of that, but that knowledge did not waiver anything I said. Star Ocean I actually may check out, but I will admit I am a complete grump about Final Fantasy anymore and I am going to have to hear some good things if they expect me to purchase 15, and it will be a hard sell for me after plating the demo. I am glad about DQVII and VIII on 3DS I wouldnt mind picking up a copy of VII as I was always curious about it. Still waiting on the HD Remaster of XII, new entries in Saga series, Mana series, fucking Chrono series would get them huge props from many, Xenogears sequel or prequel if Takahashi was involved, and lets not forget Enix who has many IPs on the shelf as well that are fan favorites, I am curious about their new JRPG IP "Project Setsuna" but its a more toned down and light hearted visuals but it may be something... but there is still the ever lurking question of does Square really have it anymore? TBD... and we have been saying this for years. Also im not counting their Eidos branch.

That's because the original "gaming generation" are their parents, so instead of consoles being in kids' bedrooms, they're in the living room, and the adults always have priority. Handheld gaming is therefore a kid's best bet, and most parents get their kids a smartphone for emergencies, and so they can keep in touch with friends online. Naturally, this means that the popularity of app store games will continually increase, especially with kids.

HAAAAAAA! I've been waiting for this!

http://www.amazon.com/SEGA-3D-Classics- ... 2KS5N5SBNK

Granted, it's not exactly the classics collection I would prefer (I'd really like to get one with Shinobi III 3DS on it), but it's still great to see this making a western appearance all the same. I thought these were going to forever remain digital-only outside of Japan, so a physical release is welcome anyway. I'll definitely support the hell out of this, in hopes that another comes out soon after.
And either way, this even includes a surprise that I wasn't expecting: Maze Hunter for the Master System (which I had, but could never legitimately play as a kid because I didn't have the 3D glasses peripheral). Awesome.

Hell yeah, you really can't beat that for $24 bucks (if you have prime or GCU). I'll be picking it up as well. I hope it sells well enough they release a second volume.
