Square-Enix going Multi-Platform?
AlterGenesis-X    2005-08-13, 06:18 am.

Recent comments from Square Enix president Yoichi Wada suggest that his company's two prized series could be taking a multiplatform route in the next generation. Wada explained, "The market for next generation game machines will be split into high-end and low-end according to the type of user. Rather than one hardware dominating, the various machines will carve out their own share."

The Final Fantasy series has already shown its diversity in moving to other platforms such as Gamecube's Crystal Chronicles. Offshoots of this game and Final Fantasy XI are expected to appear on the Revolution and Xbox's 360. Square Enix confirmed that the Final Fantasy series will come to PlayStation 3, without any specific information.

Although, any other other SQEX projects going multiplatform would be a surprise. Dragon Quest, in one case. Although it has been seen on Nintendo's portable systems and with a DS version of Slime Mori Mori to make a release, the Dragon Quest series has remained a strictly Playstation thing.
