The lights are on
Square Enix is expanding its presence by bringing Eidos/IO Interactive's Mini Ninjas to Google Chrome, starting with a beta this month.
Mini Ninjas originally came out for consoles a few years ago (check out our review) and Square Enix is bringing it to Google's Chrome web browser, starting with an open beta starting sometime this month. Participants in the beta will need the upcoming Chrome browser (version 17).
Said Yoichi Wada, Square Enix CEO, "Gaming in the browser greatly expands the video game market to new consumers, devices and platforms... With the power of this technology, Square Enix is pushing the boundaries of the browser gaming market to include high quality games in addition to our popular portfolio of casual games."
It'll be interesting to see what other Square Enix console titles the company can bring to browsers.
