The lights are on
Square Enix is a big name in the RPG genre, but now the company is carving out a bigger place for itself in the downloadable market. Today the publisher announced a new line-up of downloadable titles that will be releasing in the coming months, and all of them will be showcased on the E3 show floor next week. On WiiWare, you'll be able to download two titles bearing names under the Tale of Bearsworth Manor banner. The first is called Chaotic Conflicts, and the second is Puzzling Pages – though both seem to involve using the Wii remote to throw paper bears at stuff. You can learn more in just a few short weeks; both titles release on June 21st.Tales of Bearsworth Manor: Puzzling PagesSpace Invaders Infinity Gene is coming to both Xbox Live Arcade and PSN, and puts a new spin on the familiar formula. Instead of just blasting aliens, now you'll unlock features and power-ups as you progress.
