The Game Awards? PlayStation Experience?

Square Enix will reveal a new RPG for console that isn’t a remake sometime next month, company president Yosuke Matsuda told the latest issue of Famitsu.

“Actually, right now, we’re working on a new RPG specifically for consoles and it isn’t a remake,” Matsuda told Famitsu. “We’ll start talking about it more in December and go from there.”

Both Geoff Keighley’s The Game Awards, which promises game-related world premieres, and Sony’s PlayStation Experience, which promises new game announcements, are being held in early December, which could be the venue for this new title reveal. There’s Jump Festa later that month, too.

Matsuda continued, “Just so we’re clear, we also still have a lot of titles in the pipeline for not just consoles, but also smartphones and PCs, and this includes games that our overseas studios are working on. I can’t talk about what platform those other titles are going to be on yet, whether they’ll be on console or mobile, but I believe we should have a wide variety of games to announce after the new year arrives.

“These are projects that began after I assumed the role of president at Square Enix. We’re going to have a lot to show for both Japan and overseas markets.”

Thanks, Hachima Kikou.
