Square-Enix’s Response…

by Richie, March 8, 2012

As you may know, I recently dropped a nerdcore song called “Letter To Squaresoft”: A lyrical letter addressed to Square-Enix reminiscing on the good old Squaresoft days and offering Square-Enix some advice (ranging from serious to comically absurd) on how to bring that old magic back. As the song began to heat up and get featured on major gaming sites such as Kotaku, Square-Enix’s online content manager Ben Bateman offered a response via twitter:

While it would have been even more epic if Ben responded with some rhymes, I’m no less grateful for his hopeful message to the fans. Hopefully the whole company shares Ben’s vision. With that said, it’s good to know that music, no matter how silly, can serve a good purpose. If you haven’t heard my “Letter to Squaresoft”, listen to it HERE.

P.S. – Here’s hoping for a U.S. port of Seiken Densetsu 3! lol

    Stuff of legend, great job man.Side note, They should just rename Versus to FF15 and just take the series in that direction. Love the song.

    Awesome track! I loved the SWTOR stuff too.Unfortunately, a vague reply from the European Online Content Producer means close to nothing. Unless Square Japan is interested we'd never see another sequel to Chrono Trigger or Secret of Mana. And unless they got the original designers on board (many of who have left Square already), any attempt would probably fall on its face.It's sad how I used to play all JRPGs in the 90s and now all I play are American made RPGs. Japan has fallen off the map.

    I am scared. FFXI was my fav mmprog from 2005-2008 but XIV just plain sucked and still does to this day. I can't imagine what they are planning to accomplish with this mmo when XIV still is not up to par yet. They should make XIV great and build some sort of fan base before releasing another mmo. Also i hope they learned their lesson from xiv and this new mmo has a way better launch and it worthy of a monthly fee at launch. I suspect that XIV will remain free to play forever. You cant spend 1 and a half to 2 years rebuilding a game then say well we think its alright now sorry for the wait you can start paying us now .
