Square Enix producing a menage a trois of RPGs in coming year

by: Randy -
The Xbox 360 is about to weather a tsunami of RPGs from Square Enix over 2008 - 2009.  The first title, Infinite Undiscovery, ships to North America on September 2nd; The Last Remnant is due sometime this winter, but no specific date is nailed down yet; and Star Ocean: The Last Hope (ahh, "last" is the new "final") is TBD sometime in 2009.  Nothing extravagant to report here.  Square Enix just wants you to know that there are RPGs coming out not named Fallout 3 or Fable 2.
