Microsoft recently held a press conference in Japan to show the growing local support for its Xbox 360 and Xbox Live Arcade service, and, surprisingly, it was Square Enix who came away with the most interesting developments of the show, and — even more surprisingly — they had nothing to do with Final Fantasy or RPGs in general.
Most notably: a new Live Arcade game project tentatively titled Project: Cube, a multiplayer dual-stick arena shooter that doesn’t give away much by just watching: for the life of me I can’t understand why the laser shots fired sometimes hang limply in the air (on the floor?).
Also, surely I can’t be alone in seeing some heavy similarities between the new game and Sean Cooper’s hit Boxhead Flash game series, down to the name itself?
