Mini Ninjas from IO Interactive will be the company’s first Chrome browser game and it goes into open beta this month. Users will need to run a beta version of Chrome 17 to play Mini Ninjas. “Gaming in the browser greatly expands the video game market to new consumers, devices and platforms. Native Client enables the same consumer experience in the browser as in a native application. With the power of this technology, Square Enix is pushing the boundaries of the browser gaming market to include high quality games in addition to our popular portfolio of casual games,” said Yoichi Wada, CEO of Square Enix.


After the launch of Mini Ninjas, Square Enix will release additional in-browser games in 2012. The titles will come from their "group-wide" lineup, which includes everything from Dragon Quest to Tomb Raider. Final Fantasy has been ported, well everywhere, so how long do you think it will take until we see the inevitable in-browser version?
