Square Enix To Announce A Brand New RPG In December

By Sato . November 25, 2014 . 2:48am


Lately, Square Enix have been working on various games that involve Final Fantasy, and Dragon Quest, along with remake and mobile titles. Company president Yosuke Matsuda revealed that they’ll announce something new in December. [Thanks Game Jouhou.]


The report comes from an interview from a Japanese video game magazine, where the Square Enix president stated, “We’re preparing a brand new RPG title that is for consoles, and that is not a remake. We’ll make sequential announcements for it starting December.”


While it seems like he couldn’t say whether it’ll be for a handheld or home console, he added, “It’s a project that started since I’ve been inaugurated as the president, and it’s finally shaping up. We’ll come out with a bang and make announcements for it, both domestic and internationally.”

  • HarakiriKami

    Um…… Its not Twewy thats for sure…. ;-;

    • Naryoril

      i hope you are not right, but i fear you are.

      • HarakiriKami

        I have a feeling this is gonna be for playstation systems anyway.If its on console consoles and not portable consoles.
        Square doesnt seem to be supporting Nintendo as much as they could be. Nothing like back in the day when they were firing off on all cylinders with the PSP and DS.

        Their mobile saturation just isnt there yet in terms of quality or content.Just more nonsense with 20 different FF games for the platform, Emo protagonist this, Granblue fantasy that.
        What they did to the Mana series is deplorable.

        • Magicks

          I’m hoping that if it’s to go to a handheld, it does what TWEWY did; take the controls of the system to the limit. I thought it was great the way that the gameplay was done in general with TWEWY and taking full control of both characters on both screens. Specifically, I’m praying that if it’s for the VITA that they do something amazing with the frontal and back touchscreens.

          • darke

            Too much to the limit as I don’t think I ever used the ‘blow into the microphone’ attack or whatever it was; too embarassing to play in public. :P

          • Magicks

            Oh god, LOL. I never used those pins, at least in public. If I never needed to use them, I’d just rub my finger on the microphone slot, and for the most part it activated the pin.

          • darke

            Ah, I never even thought of that! :( Just ended up avoiding those pins.

            Think they were removed in the iOS port, but I haven’t played that in years, and probably would have avoided them anyway out of reflex. :P

  • Rayhan PromisedGallery
    • HarakiriKami

      you forgot the comma

    • Cosmos Black

      Oh, I am.

      • HarakiriKami



        • Cosmos Black

          It’s a pause as if I was raising an eyebrow and smirking after the ‘Oh’ but before the ‘I am’.

          I could go with ‘Oh. I am.’ but that reads more like a disappointed surprise. Just like that time someone pointed out my misuse of the comma. I sat there for a while contemplating it and you know what I thought? ‘Oh. I am.’

  • If it’s not a Shrek jrpg, then I don’t care.

  • Guest

    it’s mobile game, i’m 100% sure

    • Rayhan PromisedGallery

      read the article please
      “We’re preparing a brand new RPG title that is for consoles”

  • “We’re preparing a brand new RPG title that is for consoles, and that is not a remake.”

    And it shall be named Final Fantasy XVI =P

  • BabyChooChoo

    Ah, good ol’ Square Enix. It’s their monthly announcement of an upcoming announcement of a game we probably won’t see for about 5 years. Yay!

  • Rin

    lol I love how they stated “AND NOT A REMAKE” hahahahaha

  • Rayhan PromisedGallery

    hopefully it’s something that involves this guy


  • Go2hell66

    must be a cold day in hell

  • Rinku

    I don’t know what i’m expecting.

  • urbanscholar

    Please guys don’t lose sleep over this it’s not worth it

  • Naryoril

    If they want to make me really happy it’s a sequel to The World Ends With You. Pretty much everything else will proabably be a disappointment.
    A new Secret of Mana would be good too, but in the past few years they didn’t do anything good with the IP, so i’d take that one with a grain of salt.

    • shytende

      Why they never made any Twewy sequels makes no sense to me.

      • Herok♞

        It makes perfect sense, TWEWY is the perfect standalone and they probably wouldn’t do it justice by giving it a sequel it doesn’t need

        • HarakiriKami

          When do you think Nomura had the time to make a Twewy game? He’s in KH purgatory.

          • darke

            Clearly he was punished for making such a great game by having to re-do KH stuff for the rest of his life. Next game will be a PS4 remastering of the PS3 remaster of the PS2 game Kingdom Hearts, and the next one will be a remaster of the remaster of Kingdom Hearts 2.

            Then by the time those are released, he’ll be remastering all three on the PS5. :P

    • HarakiriKami

      Its not happening.

  • pokepokun85 .

    i have no idea how to react with this

  • DudeJericho


  • jamurjamban

    Final Fantasy XIII-4 Lightning Rises :v

    • Harry Potter

      if that happen i will never support square

    • Crystal Power

      Well… I’d buy it………

  • TempestTwin

    Here’s a thought Square Enix, how about you release the current RPG’s you have been working on that fans have been awaiting on before you make other promises you fail to deliver.

    • Naryoril

      which ones would that be? I don’t like KH and FFXV hasn’t caught my interest yet.

  • xanox

    Lightning Takes Over A New Game: FF Get Rekt

  • EDIT: they’re sleeping on so many potential western hits, and yet keep churning announcement after announcement smh.

    • Rayhan PromisedGallery

      read the article please
      “We’re preparing a brand new RPG title that is for consoles”

      • JUST so this! I’m editing! tnx

      • Monterossa

        It will be on smartphones eventually anyway. If not the game itself then it’s gonna be a spin-off of it.

  • Rayhan PromisedGallery

    How many ongoing still-on-progress console games are they working now anyway? KH3 has always been postponed with how Tokyo Team and Luminous keep getting used by FFXV. They even need to switch to UE4. Meanwhile because they need money, they keep reusing FF13 “assets” and make unneeded sequels. And at the same time makes more and more smartphone games
    Now they are making another? Will FFXV and KH3 get postponed more?

    • Kuromadou

      if i remember, there was a news about SE recruiting people to create a new team or studio for their future RPG projects.

  • RmanX1000

    Infinite Undiscovery 2?! :D….. No? Alright i understand…

    • TempestTwin

      A person can dream….

    • AdamBoy64

      That would be amazing.
      I really like that game.

      One of the reasons I keep an X360 around – in case I want to play through it again.

  • 3PointDecoupage

    I’d rather have a remake. I don’t trust Square to make games anymore.

  • Liamv2

    Please be another chrono game. Please!

  • EvE

    star ocean 5

  • Harry Potter

    Please be Excited

    • Hector Velar

      sorry SquareEnix has not excited me after final fantasy tactics advanced 2 :/

        I-I’m sorry, that was the sound of my cash hitting the screen.

  • lolcatz6657

    A NEW game? Not some crappy spin-off title? Mind = blown.

    • 3PointDecoupage

      They just said new RPG. It could still be a spinoff.
      And it most likely will be crappy.

      • lolcatz6657

        Yeah it is possible, but i really want to believe it is something new and no some crappy spin off. lol

  • hng qtr

    Smartphone game inco…

    “We’re preparing a brand new RPG title that is for consoles, and that is not a remake.”
    O-oh. Color me surprised.

    • darke

      Don’t worry, they’ll make it an XB1 exclusive as part of a marketing partnership, that is to say huge-pile-of-cash exchange, with Microsoft.

      I’m totally not cynical at all. :)

  • Harry Potter

    UHH.. Yay!

  • SirRichard

    A brand new RPG, for consoles (or handhelds, either’s lovely) that they already plan to announce internationally?

    Most exciting news to come out of this company in a long time, but I’ll believe it when I see it.

  • Please, focus on FF 15 first…

    • lolcatz6657

      FFXV looks like it will be pretty boring anyway, so no huge loss for me

    • shytende

      Square Enix is a big company, with many different projects.
      It will probably have no influences on FFXV.

    • Rayjin

      There are different teams in the company. Smh.

  • Nicole Lewis

    I’m with the one who said let it be a Chrono game.

  • Dyne

    hope this time they get it right

  • ワン スャレ

    Radiata Stories 2!
    …no one remembers radiata?

    • Slickyslacker

      (Screams “ME!” until my lungs explode)

    • Magicks

      Holy shit, I feel old remembering that game. ;A; I still have my copy somewhere in my basement.

    • Sebastian Lothian

      Ooo, time to go listen to some music from that game.

      • AdamBoy64

        Oh yeah, Radiata Stories had some great music.

  • They can make awesome games outside the Final Fantasy series, like The Last Remnant or Infinite Undiscovery (this game is so great), I’m hoping for something similar.

  • Mark Lengod

    SaGa? They mentioned another entry was being developed on the week of the Anniversary.

    • Nobody in the West cares about SaGa, so I doubt this is that, even though we know a new SaGa is in development.

      • KazukiNanbu

        sad but true

      • HarakiriKami

        Saga should be more popular. The games have a fantastic structure

        • WeretigerRei

          Meh. the 3 Romancing Saga games were made by R&D2 and had a lot of shoddy programming. In fact some code diving into RS3 shows that a lot features were left out or rushed, the trading mini-game being the hardest hit. Saga didnt really shine until Frontier

      • s07195

        Is SaGa the game series with its spiritual sequel coming out on the 3DS? (Can’t remember the game name atm, there was a trailer a week or so back)

        • That’s the one. Legend of Legacy has a lot of former SaGa folks working on it. FF Explorers does, too. :)

  • Rafael Budzinski

    …”that is not a remake”. Thank God, no more Final Fantasy IV.

  • Zeonsilt

    Chrono Break please.

  • dj_jm09

    I actually have some high hopes for this. I personally hope that it is a new Star Ocean or Valkyrie Profile game that is being produced by Squeenix and Tri Ace! !!

    • Mimi

      yes, i want this!

    • KazukiNanbu

      you know who own those ips?

      • dj_jm09

        Yes i do know who owns those IPs. I said who owned them in my comment…

        • KazukiNanbu

          i don’t really, tri-ace is using characters from star ocean and valkyrie profile in PS NOVA so i don’t know if the owner is SE, Tri-ace or they share the ips

          • dj_jm09

            Ok the owner of those IPs are Tri Ace. I apologize for my response because i thought you were asking me that question just to try to prove me wrong like many people on the Internet do lol

  • Jezzy

    Versus XV

    • Mark Lengod

      I’d laugh so hard

    • RmanX1000

      Which will eventually become FFXVII for the PS5 and Xbox Two

  • Codi Schumacher

    An announcement that they are going to announce something how redundant they could have either announced whatever it is now or waited till december actually came.

  • Txu Zai

    Excitement level for this = 0
    It’s SE, no point in getting hyped.

    • Ps1 Cloud

      couldn’t of said it better myself

  • whatinthewolrd

    NEW jrpg IP plz.

  • Dave Cain

    FFVI sequel? Nah I’m dreaming.

    • Haganeren

      nightmaring i think you wanted to say…

  • Unlimax

    Sqaure Enix , this is you chance to impress me , Make PE true sequel
    pretend like T3B wasn’t exist and you will restore my faith in gaming

  • “…and it’s a game directed by Motomu Toriyama.”


    • Pedro Furtado

      Please, no :(

  • Godmars

    If they’re smart – HA! – they’ll rip off the engine and style of Lost Ark for a SP experience.

  • AndyMAX

    Dragon Quest XI or a brand new Dragon Quest Monster.

  • Ayylmao


    • J_Joestar

      well they said “Consoles” already, but the fact they had to do that is kinda depressing in itself when you think about it.

  • Namuro

    Love how they stated that it’s a “brand new” PRG, and loads of people are wishing for sequels to existing series. LOL

    ..Can I have a new Chrono game…?

    • mojack411

      I was thinking the same thing haha, minus the Chrono game part. My interest is certainly piqued.

    • animefreakhq

      Square has so many franchises that they haven’t paid attention unless its Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, or Kingdom Hearts.

    • Magicks

      I’m still waiting for that TWEWY2.

  • Stephen Mc Devitt

    As long as none of the tired old men, who we all know and hate, aren’t involved, I’ll give the new game the benefit of the doubt.

  • Heropon

    Hiroyuki ito game Please . I have been waitting 8 years for the evolution version of Ative dimension battle ………… or Star Ocean 5, Valkyrie Profile 3

    • Chris Hodges

      I second an Ito game.

  • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

    Please be either a new entry on the Mana or Valkyrie series~.

    • Quan Chi

      But Kingdom Hearts IS basically Mana xD

      • Sebastian Lothian

        Not really.

        • Quan Chi

          Yeah. Really.

          • Sebastian Lothian

            How so? The mana series is fairly different from the Kingdom Hearts series, especially if you’re talking about the ones that are considered “good”.

          • Quan Chi

            There’s barely anything different about the base of each game besides the obvious characters/story. They play the exact same ways. Same with Threads of Fate. That’s basically a mana game too. Even share some of the same enemies.

            Before you drag this forced discussion on longer than it has to be:

          • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

            Except the story / plot / World are exactly what defines the Mana series. Under your concept then all FPSs are basically Call of Duty. All platformers are basically Mario and so on and so forth~.

            KH is a universe of its own; and the Seiken Densetsu series is a completely different universe from KH~.

            Sharing similar combat mechanics doesn’t amount to anything~.

          • Quan Chi

            Sigh, did you NOT hear me just say:
            ‘besides the obvious characters/story’
            ‘base of each game’

            Because if you read anything, you wouldn’t have just repeated the same crap.

            FPS’s ARE basically Call of Duty. Platformers control differently so that can’t be said for that. KH is a universe of it’s own? NO SHIT! Lol, stop getting into conversations if you can’t interpret english and are repeating the same things I said but calling me wrong about it xD.

            FYI, KH was made FROM MANA GAMES. Mana and Saga, with each being experimental bases for KH and Final Fantasy respectively.

            It amounts to EVERYTHING I just said.

            What’d I tell ya. Told ya dumb arguments will follow ;)

            Now analyze that.

          • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

            Technically, nobody can hear you. At most, we can read you, quite painful as it is. Characters and Story DEFINE an RPG, you are oblivious if you think otherwise. KH is not “basically” a Mana game and FPS ARE NOT basically Call of Duty~.

            I suggest you play Seiken Densetsu 3 before you have the dumb idea to say a KH game is basically the same. Branching paths, classes and a lot of other things are not present AT ALL, in KH~.

          • Quan Chi

            Have fun with your stupidity :)
            Argue by yourself.

    • If only they made another Valkyrie in the lines of Covenant Of The Plume…

      • HarakiriKami


      • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

        Covenant of the Plume was great concept wise [I mean, you were playing for the bad guys, how badass was that?] but the gameplay mechanics were awful and the character development was mediocre [moreso for the premise]; VP is best suited as an action JRPG, not an awful SRPG~.

        • I thought it did everything right in a SRPG. An excellent and dark story coupled with a solid translation and excellent dialogues from deep characters. The battle system which encouraged you to gang up on ennemies and really use your brain to claim your victory. Limiting grinding was very cool. Memorable final boss, with different endings based on how you used your plume to kill off your allies AND a meaty post-game. I dare say I enjoyed it even more than FFTA2 on the DS. But I agree it isn’t popular for the reasons I gave. But I just wish they gave this game another chance.

          • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

            Post game has always been a trademark of the VP games, so that wasn’t new. But I thought the game didn’t exploit the characters as much as it could’ve. You got caught up in the political game when you should’ve been caught up in the fact you were working for Nifelheim with the implications it carried. That said, sacrificing allies sure was fun~.

            Compared to VP: Lenneth, the character development was minor and you were only introduced to the basics of each and everyone. I didn’t feel involved with them nearly as much as I did with the case of Lenneth and Silmeria. As for the game mechanics, I’ll choose the action format of prior entries over grid SRPGs any day, but I suppose that’s a matter of personal preference~.

  • kenshee

    Could this perhaps be unveiled at the december playstation event? Though I guess “consoleS” kinda rules that out, unless psvita/ps4 >.>
    Anyways, I’m excited, finally a non smartphone game again :)

    They shared their new strategy a while ago right? They now focus on a couple really big releases, a couple midsized budget games and then a ton of smarthpone stuff…
    FF XV and KH3 would (should…) be taking up those big budget spots so … midsize budget game incoming? I’m actually totally fine with that, Nier was one of my favorite games last gen ^^ (drakengard 3 … not so much, I really wanted to like it though)

    Bring on the awesome ideas and risks you can’t easily take with an AAA game :)

  • Jero

    Hm, the japanese studio is focused in ffxv though is almost finished its a given that after that they’ll start working in kh3. So I guess this is a mid-budget game. Which is not bad.

    On another note, square please give us info about bravely second!

    • They’re working on both ffxv and kh3 at the same tie lol this is why nomura is working on kh3 while tabita whatever his name is working on the ffxv project

    • Godmars

      FF15 was 50% done under Nomura after eight years before he left the project and the new guy came in – who apparently immediately began taking things in a different direction.

      So I’m not sure what you’re talking about.


    …….Please? (*^_^*)

        • HarakiriKami

          Booooooo, Lenneth is awesome

          • KanjiLikesBoys

            that game was terrible. the voice acting, the plot, the story, the writing, THE EDITING OF THE SCENES so that when a person started talking the camera would start on them then move to the person they were talking to they didn’t have to show the horribly lip-sync.

          • HarakiriKami

            Oh right. we cant trust square to get anything right these days

          • KanjiLikesBoys

            I think that one, Silmeria, was all Tri-Ace’s big turd. I don’t think they made a good looking game since the move away from hand-drawn sprites. Maybe that most recent game with the guns is an exception

    I do remember that thing on their site where they were trying to hire some experienced devs. There was also that story where they wanted to have a dedicated RPG team or something like that.

  • BlackC#Bro

    So if it’s a console RPG, we won’t be playing it until the PS5 is out and if it’s a handheld RPG, it will be a F2P smart phone game.

    Something new?

    First Fantasy: The Beginning of Time
    A story-driven RPG about the foundations of “Vicky’s Mystery” lingerie line in a fantastical world mixed with a little steampunk.

    Players can play as Viktor or Vicky. They will have to travel the world collecting materials by defeating monsters and collecting their skin or (secretions in the case of silk and the like). Later in the game they can develop machines to create mixed materials, as well.

    They will have to make certain items for certain customers to obtain certain things like airship travel, chuck-a-ho, etc. Similarly, they must build a relationship between their ‘workers’ and themselves through a diverse system of dialogue during important moments in the game. Other factors include using or not using certain materials, using or not using certain other workers in your party, using or not using ethical or unethical methods to defeat your foes.

    There will be no character levels, per se. All ‘levels’ will be according to the relationships you have. The stronger relationship, the higher stats your workers will have in both combat and creating lingerie. Furthermore, additional stats can be added by wearing certain created items. The baggier and more coverage for male characters, the higher the stats. The smaller, cuter, frillier or sexier for female characters, the higher the stats for them.

    Funds are collected by completing quests such as collecting a certain material for your mentor (while you are still a trainee) or finding that perfect gem or material that will raise stats on the characters who have the highest relationship with you.

    There are multiple ways to win. You can buy out your competition outright or by buying enough stocks to become a voting member in their company and convince others to vote you in as the new president.. You can also steal or plunder their business until they give up and close shop. The last victory condition is if you control the market with a 80% majority in all cities.

    Once you win, play again! Like I said, you’ll have two characters to choose from with two different sets of strengths and weaknesses. There will be other workers to hire and new materials to find.

    It’ll be a fun game. :D

    Dragon Quest XI


    DQ XI, FF XV, KH III all on PS4, and I am made.

    • James Todd

      hope to slime it’s dragon quest XI

    • WeretigerRei

      Hmm i thought DQ11 development started more recently than when Matsuda became president. Also since Yuji Horii stated that they are already working on it doesnt that spoil the announcement? Also SE has never made international announcements at the same time as domestic announcements with DQ games with the exception of the 1-8 mobile titles

  • revenent hell

    Whelp there goes my comment that its for a smartphone.

    I’ll be truly impressed if its an actual totally new IP instead of some spinoff game of a popular series.

  • Blackburn7

    Valkyrie Profile 3.


  • Bell

    I really, really want it to be a completely new game; not a sequel or prequel or spin-off or any of that.
    Unless it’s a spin-off about Noel Kreiss, possibly taking place after FFXIII-2 but before LR. Hey, I can dream, right?

    • Alex Shadov

      Deploying “Flame Shield” (mechanical voice)

      Flame Shield deployed. Proceed.

      – I hate FFXIII-2. I’ve wasted my money on terrible games and suffered throughout them with the pride of a gamer…

      But playing XIII-2 made me want to play and win twice Ghosts ‘n Goblins. The thing I LOVED the most of FF LR was the opportunity to beat to a pulp one of the most insufferable character I have had the unfortunate opportunity to play in a game with.(Noel)
      FF XIII-2 was the only FF game where I was rooting for the bad guy the whole time, not because I liked him, but because it was the only character smart enough to state the obvious. The whole thing was totally pointless.

  • Ni ~Algidus~

    For the love of God let it be PE3 or a new Valkyrie Profile.
    But it is going be DQ XI and we know it (I want to be wrong)

    for various reasons the thought that they will mess up a new VP and PE game doesn’t leave my mind

    • Alex Shadov

      I prefer a new Parasite Eve over Valkyrie Profile. Both have cool stories, but the gameplay of PE is cooler. (I could never understand what I had to do exactly in VP Lenneth to watch the whole story. Kind of a bummer there, because I liked the norse mythology and the way the game was using it.)

      • Ni ~Algidus~

        I kinda know how you feel. the beggining of the game ws a mess to me because since I started on Hard and I had to worry with the grind of the characters and I didn’t know that some characters did influenced how the vents would turn out to be it took some time (restart the game from point zero) to do a decent playthrough. But i still love the game mechanics of VP:L. first RPG that made me stufy the core elements.
        In the case of PE I only liked the first PE gameplay wise. It was the game that made me love the battle systems where you need to worry about your movements, how quick you will attack and how bigger your range and area of attack will be while waiting for your turn. the second turned out to be too RE-ish on the gameplay and didn’t liked as much.

  • Woot Woot

    OMG It’s secret of mana

  • ishyg

    Whoa, I almost commented about mobile and stuff.

    Thank you, new Squeenix President.

  • Pearl


  • Alex Shadov

    I don’t care which game it is. The good news is that they are localizing it.

  • Izzeltrioum



  • I’m curious, but I won’t get excited yet. ^u^;
    This could be great for the future and direction of SE, or not. . . I hope for the best though~!

  • dispedia

    hopefully Valkyrie Profile 3

    2015 looks to be a good year for PS4

  • WhyWai

    99% sure that it’s a Final Fantasy title.

  • “… the Square Enix president stated, “We’re preparing a brand new RPG title that is for consoles, and that is not a remake…. || While it seems like he couldn’t say whether it’ll be for a handheld or home console… “.

    What? Didn’t he just say it was for consoles?

    Regardless, I’m looking forward to the announcement. Glad we don’t have to wait too long – we’ll hear about this in the next few weeks :D

    • Sebastian Lothian

      I’m unsure what you’re implying. Him saying that it was for consoles means that it can be for a handheld and/or for a home console.

  • Hound

    My interest depends entirely upon what type of RPG Square thinks is the best choice, and how much effort will be in my direct control.

    I’m really hoping they just back-pedal and try to figure out how to make a very puzzling, challenging, strategic, and story-focused game again.

    Something like Lufia 2’s dungeon maps with the challenge level of Japanese Final Fantasy IV, the visuals of Final Fantasy X, and the pacing of Chrono Trigger minus any microtransaction ideas they come up with would be good enough for me.. And that’s going back a few generations and advancements.

  • quasadra

    Front Mission 6…..

    what? dont look at me funny, i can daydream right?

  • CloudStrifeACC

    PARASITE EVE please!

    • Ric Vazquez

      Heck yeah, a true sequel to PE2 please

  • Maxialstar

    TWEWY 2 ! PLEASE TELL ME IT’S FINALLY TWEWY 2 ! All the fans went wild when the page of the remake went online and now they say “It’s not a remake”… they’re making a reference to TWEWY Solo Remix announcement somehow dissapointed by some fans !

    • Ric Vazquez

      Agreed, wishful thinking can’t hurt

  • Kornelious

    Well it’s about damn time! >:(

    I won’t get to excited just yet though, Even if the game is good we still have the localization process to deal with (Though Square is usually pretty good about that) But that’s something to look forward to….Finally something that’s not a spin-off and/or mobile game! :D

    • Ric Vazquez

      This, this so damn much.

  • Ric Vazquez

    Another TWEWY or Parasite Eve would be awesome, just saying SE…

  • Γεώργιος Αρχαιοκαπηλίδης

    A brand, new RPG for Japan only. We know that it will end like that, unless Sony or Nintendo (depending where it will be released) do the job for them.

  • WeretigerRei

    i suspect a legacy title

  • Tom

    So… Now that december is history… May I ask what was Square’s big announcement? Because I don’t remember anything noteworthy.
