Square Enix is hard at work bringing lots of RPG goodness to the masses. A few days ago Square Enix unveiled the first image of their new IP, a title aimed at being more appealing to the Western audience. Today we have info that a few recent job postings show Square is looking for talent to create a RPG for the PS3 and Vita.
The job listings are looking for top talent to work in the Square Enix 1st Production Department, the area that makes the Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts games. Could it be possible that we might get some word on Kingdom Hearts 3 soon?
According to the postings Square Enix is looking to create an action RPG, with the Unity Engine for both the PS3 and Vita. In one area they’re looking for someone to handle player character growth and customization, while another is seeking someone to handle air ship gameplay. This doesn’t tell us much about the game – since these elements are standard in many projects from the developer.
An action RPG is no surprise since Square Enix is steering the Final Fantasy series — their flagship franchise — away from its turn-based roots to more of an action oriented series.
This new title could be a new Final Fantasy game in its early development, another new IP or another Kingdom Hearts spin-off. One thing is certain, it’s highly unlikely this is the Final Fantasy 7 remake fans have been drooling over.
The fact that Square is looking for people to develop the title on both the PS3 and Vita may indicate that the new game could utilize the PS3/Vita connectivity. It also could be another HD port similar to the recently announced Final Fantasy X re-release for both PS3 and Vita.
As always we’ll just have to wait and see what this project is. Make sure to keep your eyes here for any further developments in this story.
