In an interview with Nikkei Trendy, a Japanese financial site, Square Enix President Yosuke Matsuda hinted at a "surprise" coming in the next year.
"For fiscal 2015, I think we have a considerable amount of high-end games both inside and outside the country," he said (via Gematsu). "Starting with Final Fantasy XV we'll be putting out news for Japanese RPGs. I think we'll have a little surprise, too."
When pressed, Matsuda clarified that the surprise would be a "JRPG for home game machines."
Until quite recently, it seemed that Square Enix was struggling to manage what used to be its core business--making JRPGs. Final Fantasy XV, for example, has now been in development for more than eight years, and we still don't have a solid date.
Still, Matsuda is confident moving forward, stating that Square Enix's "Japanese and Western Studios are both bolstering their lineups considerably, so it'd be wise to keep an eye on them."
We got a chance to try out Final Fantasy XV earlier this month at PAX East, noting that we are "more excited for it than ever before." We also reviewed Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, awarding it an eight out of ten.
