Square Enix/Yahoo announcement is Sengoku browser game

Friday, 21st May 2010 10:19 GMT By Johnny Cullen


Mind that mindblowing announcement Square Enix and Yahoo! had for today that would “change Japanese history”? Yeah, about that…

Turns out it was just a browser-based game for the Sengoku series, known as Sengoku IXA.

And unlike most browser-based Sengoku games in Japan, where you have to pay for them, this one is free!

The official site’s here, just in case you’re curious.

Thanks, Kotaku, AGB and mington.

    To be fair, Kotaku makes a very good point:

    “For Japan, this game actually could be something like Farmville or any of the popular free-to-play games.”

    Stuff like Farmville has become pretty big in the west and did have quite an impact on the gaming industry.
