Square Enix president Yoichi Wada has told Nikkei’s Trendynet that The 3rd Birthday will see a release in Japan this year.
Speaking to the paper, he mentioned the title in a whole slew of titles due in the country this year, including io’s Kane and Lynch 2: Dog Days, Deus Ex: Human Revolution from Eidos Montreal and Japanese-developed titles like Dragon Quest: Monsters.
Wada did not, however, name two other big titles which have been long overdue for a re-reveal: Final Fantasy Versus XIII for PlayStation 3 and Final Fantasy Agito XIII for PSP, both apart of the Fabula Nova Crystallis series alongside Final Fantasy XIII for PS3 and Xbox 360.
The 3rd Birthday, meanwhile, is seen as a spin-off from the Parasite Eve series, although some consider it a main title in the series. The last we heard on the shooter was that it was still coming alongside Agito XIII, with Square insisting it will “exceed expectations“.
