Anyone who is a Square Enix Member may have received a questionnaire regarding a possible new game by YOKO TARO!

A NEW SMART PHONE GAME BY YOKO TARO!!!!

Can we stop right there?
What of this are you not interested in!?

This is some amazing news–just the thought of an Android/iOS geared game helmed by Yoko Taro!!!

As an obvious fan, I am beyond excited for him!! More than anything else, we NEED more stories that are “outside of the box”. For more than a decade have I been bored of the same re-hashed stories that are eaten up by the masses… I don’t contend with the popularity of certain titles, but… we’ve all seen that story before. We’ve been to that world and fought that end boss before.

Unlike many common gamers, I know I am much more story/character-centric. I could care less about the gameplay or game mechanics. As long as the story is compelling enough, the main and even minor characters developed well enough, I was in it for the long-haul.

So, anyway, here are some of the questions in the questionnaire:

This is AWESOME news!! More than my love of or Nier… I am so much more interested in the *potential* of Yoko Taro, what sort of stories he could tell if given the necessary means to do so. I want to support him any way possible, so if you are a Yoko Taro fan, I suggest spreading the word with this news! There is very little information available right now, but it seems as though it may be a dark fantasy themed Alice in Wonderland sort of story…?? Whatever they have in mind, I am fully behind them!!
