The lights are on
Its countdown site didn't quite refresh as quickly as it was supposed to, but Square Enix's announcement is here, and it's for a game called Star Galaxy.
The website is in Japanese, so there isn't much information to us English speakers, but here's some rough Google translation answering the question, "What is the game Star Galaxy?"
"Star Galaxy" is a simulation strategy game that takes place in the galaxy.Enhance the military to develop the territory of planet that is home to organize our officers were brought up to their liking, emergency, fighting to the sector.In cooperation with the friendly, self-force will lead to victory.
So, there you go. Simulation strategy in space. It will be entering beta soon and hopefully we will have more general information about the game soon.
Update: According to rumor (and our comments section) it looks like Star Galaxy is a browser game. The best evidence so far to confirm this rumor is that the system requirements list assorted Internet browsers and the latest version of Flash. Is this something you are excited about checking out?

All my hopes for a new Star Ocean -dashed against the rocks. Simulation, Strategy, Space? Meh. I will pass.
Well...that's extraordinarily disappointing.
Well this was all for nothing.
Browser based game? *Sigh*
I immediately thought it was a browser game just from that one picture, even before reading the update.
Buahahaha,..SE strikes again! Everyone thought it was another Star Ocean, but guess what?, we were all wrong. The smart thing for SE to have done would have been to announce another Star Ocean,but that again would have been a smart business move,which they aren't do anymore.
Bummer deal, with a name like that I was hoping it'd be a new Star Ocean franchise. Oh well, it just may still be worth checking out.
Space strategy sounded promising, up until the browser part.
Thought it was Star Ocean :( Looks dumb and what a waste, it really needed a countdown timer...
I thought it was a rogue galaxy sequel :(
Wow, looks cool!
You had me up until "browser".
Not really. Bah browser games.
great game star galaxy
I like how Game Informer bases its news updates off of the comments section
IMHO, this will be terrible...Honestly, is ANYONE excited about browser based games? Ever? *crickets* *crickets* I'll take silence as a no...
You know what I'd be interested in? FF VS FINALLY. Or news that the tech demo Agni's Philosophy was a great new RPG. Or anything, really, other than another stupid FFXIII spin-off or a damned browser-based sim.
What the hell, SE? What the absolute hell?
