• New PS4 Exclusive "Project Code Z" Teased



    Square Enix have revealed a teaser site for an upcoming PS4 exclusive, titled "Project Code Z". There's not much to go on at the moment other than a couple of images in the "Z" which gives us a vague hint towards what we can expect.




    More information is due to come to light at the Tokaigi Japan Game Party 2015 which is taking place in a few days time on the 31st January. Be sure to keep an eye out!

      The Z is for zylophone.

      Z must be the "in" letter at the moment. H1Z1, Day Z, and now Project Z. Of course it's probably just a temporary name, such as Project Natal (Kinect) or Project Morpheus (PS whatever). Square Enix were talking about revealing a new console game that "isn't a remake" a while back, so maybe this is it. Guess we'll find out on the 31st.

      Whatever it is I don't think it will be a big budget, AAA game. The artwork behind the "Z" looks kinda hand drawn, and makes me wonder if Square Enix might have taken inspiration from Ubisofts Child of Light. That's would be fine by me!

      Pre-rendered backgrounds are actually making somewhat of a comeback these days, spanning all types of game budgets, from Project Phoenix to The Black Tower and especially Obsidian doing some really interesting techniques with the upcomingPillars of Eternity. Square Enix already uses them for Chaos Rings on Vita/Mobile and the Bravely games on 3DS, so I have to think this will be a little more involved, being on PS4. Which would be awesome, since having an army of artists tackling pre-rendered backgrounds allows you to spend more time thinking about everything else in the game, which is basically how Final Fantasy VII came out the way it did.

      I don't think I've ever heard of either of these games. But upon investigation, The Black Tower looks flippin awesome!

      Well, poop. Upon further investigation, apparently the project died and the developer moved on to a game called Catyph and is working on a remastered version of their first game

      Here's hoping this Project Code Z is comparably awesome

      I see crystals. It's a Final Fantasy.

      FFVII: DayZ, Sephiroth's revenge or something.

      I'm not going to allow myself to get hyped. Something new like this, who knows when it will launch.

      There are a lot of "It's Legend of Dragoon 2" comments in the source url.

      Way to give your hopes up, guys.

      Square had nothing to do with Dragoon 1, though. Why would they be doing Dragoon 2? Dragoon 1 was an SCE game. I'm almost positive

      Square did have nothing to do with it. It just seems to be a common misconception that they did.

      That's my point. Though now some are hoping Sony gave them the rights to make it because it's a PS4 exclusive. It's amusing what people will come up with despite little evidence supporting the matter.

      I believe the misconception comes from the fact former Square employees worked on the game.

      Really? So it was a legitimate rehash of FFVII's style? I thought it was just imitation, like a compliment. Now it's just more of the same. It's shameful! .... actually it changes nothing. Just interesting

      *Dun, dun, dun* "Another hype bites the dust"

      I did say that I doubt it would be a AAA title, but it's still a little disappointing.

      At least they're making it for PS4 though and not mobile, right? RIGHT?!
