March 28, 2008, Square Haven has ceased updates indefinitely. Don't despair, however; the work started here more than ten years ago continues at Videogam.in.

"My penis is very large," Wada proudly brought up during the conference, "Very much larger than Mr. Miyamoto's; in fact, I believe I may have the longest, most durable penis in the gamesindustry."

At the recent business conference Squenix held where we expected them to unveil a new game (which they didn't, bastards), the company restated its ambitions to become the biggest global publisher the market has ever seen, a claim only backed up by the actual proof of their sales in the first 6 months of this year. Should they attain their goals, they'll be seeing over $1bn turnover within 3-4 years with 25% of that coming from online titles.

As for the "interesting" part, Final Fantasy XII was confirmed for release this financial year, along with the other already announced PS2 titles and three unannounced ones. Upcoming Crystal Chronicles and Sword of Mana are still on their way, with another title coming for the GBA as well (presumably a port of FFIII?).

The most interesting comment to come out of the meeting, however, appears to be Yoichi Wada's statement that the European market is more promising than even the Japanese one, and that Square Enix will be paying it a lot of attention in the near future, with improved localizations for the territory - meaning more games, and faster.
