Forums - Gaming Discussion - Square Enix President: We need to Meet The Needs of Our Customers in a More Timely Manner

After the turnover with Yoichi Wada, the new president of Square Enix Yosuke Matsuda feels that changes are in order at the company. Today he explained in an interview on Infoseek that Square Enix needs to be faster in meeting the needs of its customers:

I’m honestly not sure on how I feel about this. From what Matsuda says, it seems that Square Enix is heading towards the quick turnaround of games we see from companies like Activision or Ubisoft. While I agree that extreme cases like Final Fantasy Versus XIII, that are bogged in production for years, can be quite bad, but chugging out rushed titles once a year may not be that much better, at least for quality.

Wich means iOS/10

It also points to more use of episodal-type content and a more dlc-centric approach.

Which is why tons of fans went onto their web site and answered their question of which games(s) you wanted to see them release and tons of them asked for Type-0 on PSP/Vita and they listened by releasing it on iOS.

I don't really blame Enix but after the merger Square DID drop in quality...

Type-0 localization this side of "never" now confirmed!

But more seriously, I agree. And I don't even think he's talking about Activision levels of turnaround. Basic things, like figuring out how to get that game across to the west quicker. FF X HD not taking what feels like a lifetime. Versus XIII not being delayed to oblivion then renamed. Plenty of things they can improve on, time-wise.
