Tuesday, 29th September 2009 13:26 GMT By Patrick Garratt

Square Enix boss Yoichi Wada has said the company wants to expand on its three-IP super-base of Dragon Quest, Kingdom Hearts, and Final Fantasy and it currently working on two to three titles designed to hit a similar stature, Yahoo! Japan reports.

These potential flagship games are expected to come out around the end of next year or early 2011.

There’s no detail on what the games are, but you can read more about it on Siliconera.

    Could be interesting. Their output latley sans mega-franchises hasn’t been amazing, possibly due to the ideal that it’s just a single one shot game. Maybe they’re just trying their luck at creating universes instead of games now.

    And where the hell is the new Kingdom Hearts? Hmm? :-)

    They’ve got a bunch of old IPs that they could revisit much to the glee of their fans, I suspect. What about a new Chrono game? Or a follow up to Vagrant Story? Or Grandia? Or a proper hi-def Parasite Eve? Or a Front Mission that doesn’t suck?

    @blerk : well, as the PSP episode isn’t out yet, I guess we won’t see KH3 before 2012.

    I have been done with Square for a long time now. Too many bad games, and too many good games that really weren’t that good. Sure some of the CGI looked nice, but you can’t play CGI, and underneath the pretty movies, hide the same old worn out and tired gameplay. No thanks.
