Square Enix Hasn't Forgotten About Babylon's Fall, Its Impending PlatinumGames Crossover

Square Enix Hasn't Forgotten About Babylon's Fall, Its Impending PlatinumGames Crossover

There should be more news before the year is out.

It seems like Babylon's Fall will see some signs of life before the year is through. Announced at E3 2018, the PlatinumGames-developed Babylon's Fall will get some new information soon, according to longtime Square Enix producer Yosuke Saito.

In a new interview with Automaton (via Gematsu), the interviewer asks Saito if he will follow through on releasing new information about Babylon's Fall in 2019.

"Yes, we'll be doing that," Saito responds. He also confirms several other projects are underway, though it's not made clear what those may be.

While Babylon's Fall was announced back at E3 2018, we haven't heard much from the Square Enix and Platinum partnership in the time since. Considering they collaborated to make Nier: Automata, one of 2017's best video games, whatever their next project could be is going to be of high interest.

PlatinumGames has had a very busy 2019, with its Nintendo Switch exclusive Astral Chain becoming a breakout hit. Tack on the success of Nier and Bayonetta, and PlatinumGames has been having quite the console generation. Studio head Atsushi Inaba doesn't seem too thrilled about the next generation though, saying it's "hard to get excited" about the new consoles as they lack anything that's "disruptive or super innovative."

This last year's E3 was filled with non-Babylon content, mostly focused on the rest of Square Enix's major projects for the coming year, including Final Fantasy 7 Remake and Marvel's Avengers. There isn't much time left in the year, so I'd imagine we'll be seeing soon where Babylon's Fall is at and what kind of game another collaboration between Square Enix and Platinum could create.
