It's official! And if you don't trust IGN, just head over to Bloomberg. Or any major Japanese gaming site.

Wow, awesome. Although I won't be getting FFX-2, since I haven't played FFX, this certainly does sound worth hearing for some fans. Hey TSA, think Tonberry will continue to insta-kill people in this game? I would think so, he's become an FF trademark along with the Cids

NO, THIS CAN'T BE HAPPENING!!!

Square, tainted :dpdepress

Don't take this the wrong way, Enix makes very good games, just diffrent. What I love about Square's games is how they put them together. That will most probbably change quite a bit now. I can't imagine FF games with a touch of Enix in them, but I'm pretty sure it wont feel like FF anymore.

Well, I have to admit - Squaresoft was an extremely successful RPG=making company by itself, but, with Enix, will it's RPGs still be great? Maybe, maybe not. I think Square's RPG are the best by itself, ESPECIALLY FF and Secret of Mana

Realize that Chrono Trigger, which I consider to be the second greates RPG of all time, was made by both Enix and Square. Enix did the story, characters, and a few other things, Square did the battle system and some other things. They make an awesome team.

Why does everyone think the FF series will be changed at all? The two franchises, Dragon Warrior and FF, will continue to be completely separate.

Bandit, form the Nintendojo boards, said this in a thread there:
Quote
Square and Enix will hold a Square Enix management and development strategy conference on November 29 in Japan.

- In addition, Square Enix does not have plans to unite Dragon Quest and Final Fantasy, the two series will remain independent from each other. Their relation with SCEI does not change after the amalgamation, as their investment in Square is unrelated to the platform selection. Moreover, although Square, Enix and Namco are working closely in supporting PlayOnline, but there is no plan for another amalgamation between Square Enix and Namco.

- It is clarified that in the new company Square Enix, the new chairman will be Yasuhiro Fukushima (the chairman of Enix); the president is Wada Youichi (president of Square); and the vice-president is Keiji Honda (president of Enix). For the investment ratio, Yasuhiro Fukushima will hold 30% of Square Enix, Miyamoto will hold 18% and Sony Computer Entertainment will hold 8%.

Square Enix would become the biggest RPG developer. The purpose of the amalgamation is to use the centripetal force to the creator and the content property to maximize and reinforce the earnings base. In the amalgamation ratio, Square is 0.81 and Enix is 1.0, therefore Square will become the dissolution company while Enix will take charge of Square Enix.

************************************
The merger will be finalised on April 1st, and all games released after that date will be released under the "Square Enix" brand. This includes FF:CC. What's even more surprising is the next Dragon Quest is rumored to be heading to the Gamecube due in part to this merger." Source: Famitsu:

I guess. I'm gonna ask Square though if they'll remake Secret of Mana on GBA. I'm gonna go put polls on different RPG forums(and GU, of course), just to show Square how many people may anticipate it. That is the top of my list for RPG remakes

BTW, Chrono Trigger was already remade on PSX with anime cutscenes and other extra options
