Square Enix has revealed that they have been working on a new gaming business that will be led by former Square Enix president Yoichi Wada.

The new company is called Shinra Technologies (named after Shinra Electric Power Company from Final Fantasy VII) and is headquartered in New York City with offices in Tokyo and Montreal. They have partnered up with Just Cause developer Avalanche Studios to develop games and technology.

It'll be interesting to see what they can create with this new technology and how long it'll take before we'll get to see any projects powered by their new cloud gaming venture.

If you're interested in finding out more then you can head over to their rather nice looking website at shinra.com.
