Square Enix has reopened a teaser site for some kind of upcoming announcement. Or not. It’s all rather vague.

For our non-Japanese readers, Gematsu has translated the site to the following:

“As of April 1st we’ve reached our 10th anniversary! We hope you’ll continue supporting us going forward as well!

Well, last time on this site we said “we are thinking about various things.” Now, we are working on a lovely (and a tad heartwarming) site.

As soon as preparations are in order, the counter will start moving. Please wait a little longer. ROCK’N ROLL!”

Right below that is a “timer” that reads 00:46:49.

This site popped up over a month ago on April 1st. It went down sometime in the same day without anything materializing out of it. Given the timing, some have written it off as a part of an April Fool Joke, but Squaresoft did merge with Enix on April 1, 2003. It would make sense for them to capitalize on their 10-year anniversary to do something special. Was the original site intended to announce something that got delayed for internal reasons? Or is Square Enix trying to pull an April Fools prank a month and a half too late?

About Karli Winata

Karli Winata is an avid gamer with a taste for a little bit of everything. Except for sports games. And racing sims. And definitely not hidden object games! I guess everything is too broad a term. Suffice it to say that he has been known to play hours of Call of Duty multiplayer in between bouts of Persona fusing and Star Coin collecting while saving the world/galaxy through sensibly bald space marines or plucky teenagers with impossible hairstyles. Where does he find the time to write about them?

    Let’s hope we actually get some games out of them. Yeesh. I know we have gotten some, but they keep announcing things and then not following through.

  • Coarse

    So we only need to wait 46 somethings and 49 somethings else until we know what this is!

    Coded ported to iOS devices with the extra content of Re: Coded? Or maybe FFXIII Hope’s future city thing for iOS devices. Something to do with iOS devices, I just know it.

  • Xx_Kares_xX

    Are they going to announce the divorce of the companies!? That would be a good start!

  • John Ellis

    A game by you or one of the many developers your brought

  • I expect nothing out of square these days but a cockslap in the face. The company is horribly managed and has completely lost touch with its customer base and financial reason. Expect social games and quick and dirty mobile games.
