Square Enix Cell Phone Plans & Sakaguchi's Right Hand Man

Square Enix has recently announced some plans for its upcoming cell phone based content. The FFVII prequel, Before Crisis: Final Fantasy VII, will be an online action RPG that takes place six years prior to the events of Square's famous hit, FFVII. To advance in the game, players will have to assemble a team to take on the various missions throughout gameplay. The game is still under development and progressing as planned. Information regarding any release dates, outside or in Japan, are not yet known at this time.

The company is working simultaneously on Final Fantasy XI mobile content. The viewer-like software will allow users to exchange themselves for instance with other members of their Linkshell. Square Enix is labeling it a solution to keep in touch with the game's virutal world 24 hours as chat, PT and other features will be implemented.

Also, it was previously announced that the creator of Final Fantasy, Hironobu Sakaguchi, has founded his own company. Sakaguchi has chosen Kensuke Tanaka as the vice president of Mist Walker. Tanaka served as general producer of the anime project Final Fantasy Unlimited. He was also involved in PlayOnline, the beta version of Final Fantasy XI, and Final Fantasy Tactics Advance.
