Square Enix Gives Clues to New PS4 Exclusive

Posted by at 1:06 pm on January 29, 2015


Square Enix appears to be teasing a new PS4 exclusive, tentatively titled Project Code Z. The game – assuming it is actually a game – has next to no information available and sports a teaser site that states that more will be revealed on January 31st, 2015.

IGN spotted the site and the simple tagline that’s being pushed on the official teaser Twitter account, which reads…

CODE Z Tweet

As for the teaser site… it’s located on Square’s Japanese server. The sub-domain reads “MSZ” but the site itself is titled Project Code Z.

The image in the background is a flash video that cycles through various images. The images appear to be locations, one of which is a dense forest with bright green foliage. The second location looks to be a an underground cave with stairs. There’s another image of the cave from a different angle, and a third image of what appears to be the same cave… only this time the image focuses on a batch of crystals.

The biggest giveaway from the series of cycling images happens to be the close-up of the crystals.
Could it be some other long lost gem from the 16-bit era scheduled to make a reappearance or is it something completely different? Perhaps a brand new IP? There’s also age-old gems like Secret of Evermore or Illusion of Gaia but I can’t see Square reviving age-old titles with a short build-up on a teaser site like that.

Then again, it might be a scaled-down game running on the Luminous Engine, exclusively for the PS4? But given that Square licensed the Unreal Engine 4 for their eighth-gen titles, hoping to see their own proprietary tech in action is looking mighty slim. We’ll find out for certain when January 31st rolls around and Project Code Z is finally revealed.
