In an interview with Nekkei Business Online, Square Enix President Yoichi Wada hinted at a hardware collaboration with Taito.
In a recent interview, President Yoichi Wada was discussing the need for innovation in the next three years and hinted at plans to lead the charge with Taito. “This is one of the reasons Square Enix will collaborate with Taito, a company that produces physical hardware,” he said. “In our talks with Taito, ideas for an actual physical product have come up. In any case, we will be releasing some ‘thing.’ It’s interesting in that it’s not the sort of thing you expect from Square Enix.”
Square Enix acquired Taito in March of this year, the company is known for making console and mobile phone games along with arcade machines.
