    • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

    • PrinceHeir

      who’s she?? ^^


        She sometimes writes articles on this very website. =) 

        This is from Olivia’s website ( – I’m an amateur translator working on content related to the latest Square Enix games. I also attend and report from video game events like E3 Expo, Tokyo Game Show, and Jump Festa.

        While I have this chance, I’d like to say – Olivia, Thank you for providing helpful translations and writing articles on Gematsu. ^_^

        • PrinceHeir

          cool, thanks as well ^^

  • KingOptimusOrigins111

    OMG, can Square Enix save the surprises for TGS 2012.  >:(

    • whiteferrero

      no! announce it now! T_T spare me the torture.

      • KingOptimusOrigins111

        LOL!!! I see where you coming from.

      • I agree while they are at it… they should release a trailer for FFVXIII, and announce localization of type-0

        • KingOptimusOrigins111

          And a release date for Versus not just a trailer.

  • whiteferrero

    holy holy holy wtf bbq! this is making me nervous and excited. hoping for a sequal hoping for a sequel hoping for a sequel. don’t let me down nomura. XD
    (this could very well be a 3DS remake T_T)

  • Kurai Warrior

    YEEEEEEEESSSSS!!! Finally some SE news I can actually get excited about!

  • Holy crap! I don’t know what else to say…

  • Anything by Nomura is bound to be a win for me.

  • Hoping that this will be released on PS3, but it is unlikely.

    • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

      That would be amazing:D

      Esp since I dont really like handhelds XD

  • OMG!!!

  • PrinceHeir

    lol i wonder if they’re gonna pull a “Overclocked” version on this one :P

    but yeah i think it’s time for a new TWEWY.

    it’s been awhile now :)

    after that, how about a new FF Tactics game or Tactics Ogre???

    Mana series?? how about Saga series??

    no?? :P

    • New Chrono series game & Vagrant Story 2 please. =)

      • PrinceHeir

        hehehe how can i forgotten about that XD

        add in Xenogears, Front Mission, Star Ocean, Valkyrie Profile(im pretty sure they own the IP)

        soo many IP’s square!!!

        do something about it :P

        • Vampiric

          theyve put entries in basically all those series this gen

          • PrinceHeir

            they haven’t done a good job putting up a representation.

            no proper Front Mission(since 5), no Mana series this gen, new Valkyrie Profile is only for the DS and it’s only SRPG. The 3rd Birthday is good(but i want the gameplay more like in the first game, or make it stealth)

            no Xenogears, no Vagrant Story, 

            guess Final Fantasy Tactcis and Tactics Ogre compensated a little, but not enough especially with the multiple IP’s they have.

            at least we got a new Star Ocean this gen ^^

            • Vampiric

              Weve seen a front mission 6 this gen on ds, in the original style, weve seen 3 mana’s this gen, we saw a new valkyrie, which is just as good regardless of battle system

              the xeno ip is now owned by nintendo

              instead of story, they gave us the world ends with you, and kingdom hearts


              they were more proilific this gen

  • GameMasterGG

    Wow! I got excited!! And I haven’t even played the first TWEWY but I loved the characters since Kingdom Hearts 3D. Damn I know the fans want a sequel but I’d love a 3DS remake for people like me who haven’t played it yet!!!

  • I’ll be damned if SE doesn’t at least put a cameo in whatever they’re teasing

  • FaithlessMr

    I’m sending a mass PM to everyone at SE worlwide saying the following:

    Release a sequel to TWEWY for any system of your choice WORLDWIDE. Social/browser games are not allowed. You have 44456 minutes. Fail, and you will be erased

    Kudos to anyone who got the reference ;) in all srsnss, I hope this is a teaser for a game. A console handheld game. No social/browser game, ost re release or novel. Either way, I’m excited fer dis one yo!
