    hmmm...i wonder if they'll change their name to Square Enix Tecmo now...lol


    since NGII was the last of the series (action-wise)...maybe they'll make it a RPG series now..

    Well, I guess this makes those fan videos of the Final Fantasy girls and DoA girls throwing down, a little less absurd.

    I think that is a good thing for both companies, actually.
    It gives Square a more robust lineup of games overall.

    I wonder if Itagaki would come back.

    And, hey, isn't there supposed to be another part to Dead Fantasy by now?

    Take a look at Castle Crashers, sometimes it takes a while to make awesome.

    This is the worst idea ever.

    Microsoft should pick them up, bring Itigaki back, put him in charge and have their hardcore studio set in place and churning stuff out.


    Square-Enix are shite. Sorry, but they are. I don't want their taint on Tecmo Superbowl or DoA or anything else, thankyouverymuch.

    Not big on Tecmo personally, but my inner gamer weeps that Taito ended up in the hands of Square Enix rather then Namco or somebody similar.

    Damn. To be honest, I kinda wished that Tecmo would have been bought out by Bandai Namco (or is it Namco Bandai?). That way we'd have a DOA/Soul Calibur crossover. Ryu Hayabasa Vs. Siegfried. Now THAT'D be a game to pick up.

    But unfortunately, since Tecmo's getting bought out by Square-Enix, I can only imagine the harm Square-Enix could do to Tecmo's games line-up.

    *Smells a DOA RPG or a Ninja Gaiden RPG coming*

    whats to praise about tecmo? seriouly there fucking rubbish! at least Square have a history of amazing games. Come on be honest! Tecmo made DoA which is only really looked at for nice graphics and girls with big tits, they screwed the makers of it outa money/royalties and there sueing! they did the same to the guy who did Ninja Gaiden and HE LEFT because his own company he worked for screwed him over!

    Tecmo are poor at best and even if they do 'pull a rabbit out of the hat' they usually shit on the magician who did the trick in the first place

    I wish Sega and Tecmo would join forces. I mean, the relationship used to be good between the two (DOA originally ran off Model 2, DOA2 off Model 3, DOA3 off Naomi if I remember right?).

    Ah well. I have to ry and finish NG2, I agree that Microsoft should have a hardcore games development studio. DOAX:Hardcore would be so much fun.

    Holy crap. The possibility of this makes it all worthwhile.
