Square Enix executive producer Yousuke Saito appeared onstage with Game Arts board director Satoshi Uesaka to confirm that the two companies are working together on a new shooting game. Under the working name of "Project Sylph," the shooter was hinted at as the next installment in Game Arts' Silpheed series, which has appeared on the PC, Sega CD, and PlayStation 2.

"Using the High Definition capabilities of the Xbox 360, we hope to realize stunning visuals in our shooting game that features as much details as possible," Saito said. "As one characteristic, this won't be just an ordinary shooter. As Square Enix, we will be adding a level of drama to our shooting game."

Just give me Silpheed 360, and I'll be a happy shooter. biggrin

Ah, ok; I checked the main page and missed that one somehow.  Interesting news though.  I tend to like GA/SE games, and I did like the last Silpheed I played quite a bit.  smile

Square Enix does do games outside the RPG genre, but they generally don't make it to the US, or are pretty much ignored if they do.

*remembers The Bouncer, Tobal, and a few other total stinkers that they've done over the years*

Now Einhander, that was a good game. And that gives me some hope as to what they're doing.

I think the development team was moved over to work on the Gran Turismo real time strategy spin-off.

I think it's already out in Japan.  I remember hearing that it got bad reviews over there.

Dirge of Cerberus is the FF7 spinoff shooter, and it should be released in the US in late summer or early fall.

I thought Dirge was going to be more real-time action oriented in terms of gameplay rather than FPS?

Almost every game Square has released outside of the RPG genre has been mediocre, so I'm not excited at this point.

The FF7 shooter spinoff is out in Japan, and yes, it is getting panned pretty much everywhere. At least to the best of my knowledge, anyway.
