Square Enix is a major developer in the video game market. Their most notable franchises are Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts. They have many other great games, but at E3 they just revealed new titles for those two gigantic franchises. After almost a decade of waiting, Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts 3 have been announced. For a while, Square Enix brought games solely to the Playstation. Then they slowly started to develop for other systems. Now, they make games for practically every gaming device out there. Final Fantasy games have been brought to multiple platforms; however, the main games have mostly been on Playstation. When Final Fantasy XIII came out it was also released on the Xbox 360, so it isn’t particularly surprising that Final Fantasy XV is coming to both the Playstation 4 and Xbox One.
From a monetary standpoint it’s a very smart move, because they will be able to target both markets. Since both consoles are powerful it shouldn’t hinder the gameplay in any way. Some gamers were complaining that Final Fantasy XIII couldn’t reach its full potential on the Playstation 3, because they also made it for the weaker Xbox 360. With the hype that Final Fantasy XV brings it will definitely bring business to both of the new consoles. With the announcement of Kingdom Hearts 3, many fans of the series jumped out of their seats. Kingdom Hearts has always been on the Playstation, besides some of the spin-off games that landed on the Nintendo handhelds. When it got announced at the Sony conference at E3, everybody thought that it would be a Playstation 4 exclusive. The next day, it got confirmed that it would be released for both the Xbox One and Playstation 4. Playstation fanboys weren’t too happy about it, but from a business stand point, it makes perfect sense. They will be able to target a much larger market when they release it for both the Xbox One and Playstation 4.
Kingdom Hearts 3 is a highly anticipated game and many people will buy it the first day it comes out. The teaser trailer alone had people hopping for joy. Hardcore Square Enix fans had a lot to cheer about with both of these announcements, especially when they said that they will be released for both consoles. It’s great news for people that are in love with Xbox and didn’t want to buy both consoles. Square Enix made a smart move to bring the game to both consoles. Hopefully, both versions of the game will be a blast. One thing is for sure, Final Fantasy will be able to keep its amazing graphics on both consoles, and Kingdom Hearts will still be able to captures its fans with its amazing gameplay.
