Square Enix stock prices have jumped to it’s highest point since 2003. Partially in thanks to it’s Eidos acquisition. This all follows the 2009 fiscal financials.
Square Enix also bought Taito, and they’re planning on opening up 10 – 20 new arcades. Contrary to popular beliefs, Arcades are not dead and aren’t doing so bad actually. Arcades are still a big thing to me, especially the China Town arcade. It’s quite a fun place to hang out actually. Eidos titles like Kane an Lynch 2 and Batman Arkham Asylum are expected to sell millions. Kane and Lynch 2 selling millions, heh. Sounds a bit far fetched, but I’m not sure.
Final Fantasy XIII has been dated as a Winter 2009 release date. Dragon Quest XI is out for a July release date as well. Sounds like a big year for Square Enix, I should start buying stocks over there, heh.
