Several days ago, Square Enix opened up a teaser website with a countdown listed for a ‘secret title.’  We reported on it yesterday.
As it turns out, the title in question is in fact Star Galaxy, which is a trademark that Square Enix had recently filed in Japan.

The game is a massively multiplayer browser game, where up to 2,000 people can fight on the same battlefield, developed for Yahoo! Japan Games service.

Go here to find out about being a beta tester for the game between 12/12 and 12/18. (it’s in Japanese, but if you use your browser’s translation feature, it will translate the page perfectly).

Watch the trailer for Star Galaxy:

This may come as a disappointment to those who were hoping for a grand console adventure, let alone the next Star Ocean game.  While it is a disappointment to have your biggest fears come true (Square Enix teaser sites only amounting to either iOS or browser games), the premise of Star Galaxy actually sounds quite interesting, if not a bit inspired in some way by the likes of Blizzard’s Starcraft.  It might be best to temper any kind of expectations that arise from a teaser countdown website from now on.  It seems a logical reasoning to believe that the next grand RPG adventures would be revealed at some kind of gaming expo or press event by Square Enix itself, where the company can show off videos and speak about the game.

    I’m really tired of being disappointed in Square Enix, but they seem to insist upon releasing tons of sequels, ports, and social games. After going through all this trouble to hype up a browser game, my trust in them is pretty much gone.

    We had some good times though, didn’t we?

    • Not in several years.  I’d rather have a new Dragon Quest game make it stateside rather than half the crap they’ve doled out to us in the last two.  

  • Oh, boy. A browser game! That was totally worth teasing us over! Ugh.

  • Seriously? … Is this an early April Fool’s joke?

  • Perhaps they should stop making pointless count-downs and start localizing Bravely Default AT LEAST…………. please?

  • Star Galaxy!!!

    …Water Ocean!!!

  • I love how they ripped off the character designs from PSU. 

  • Square Enix, you NEVER fail to disappoint! Honestly, the sooner the company goes belly-up, the better.
