Square Enix tends to hold its Final Fantasy franchise close to the vest. The series hasn’t changed hands in the past, with Square Enix deciding to develop each new game internally.

Now here’s a crazy thought: how about an Eidos-made Final Fantasy? You may remember that Square Enix absorbed the company a few years ago, and is now a close partner as a result.

Interestingly, Square Enix has considered bringing in an outside developer to work on Final Fantasy – including Eidos. There have been discussions about the possibility, according to Yuji Abe. Abe said Square Enix would “think about” allowing an external team to take on Final Fantasy “if we find the right team of developers, the right people who really wanted to do it, and we had the right game”.

He told OXM:

Thanks to a prior announcement during a recent Nintendo Direct, we knew Nintendo would release a special collector’s edition for Bravely Default in Europe. The package was officially announced today, and the items included inside were revealed.

Following the news, the official Japanese Bravely Default Twitter account posted a brief message: “For those jealous of the European Deluxe Edition, we’ll make it up to you.”

What could that mean? Might a collector’s edition for Bravely Default be coming to North America as well? Or maybe Square Enix is just preparing something unique for Japan…
