Publisher launching own app portal
Japanese game publisher Square Enix has announced plans to launch its own app store for Android-based devices. The portal, referred to as Square Enix Market, is expected to launch with an Android edition of the Final Fantasy iOS remake, along with a number of other titles such as Dragon Quest Monsters, Chaos Ring, and Crystal Defenders.
The company already offers several games through Google's official Android Market, though the content is limited to just four titles.
The Square Enix Market is said to be scheduled to formally launch on December 1 for customers on Japanese carrier KDDI, before heading to SoftBank and DoCoMo. Additional games, including Chrono Trigger and Itadaki Street, are expected to be added sometime in the near future. [via Andriasang]
