emma vs. square enix. round three.  
so. for those of us just tuning in agian, i've been attempting to get square enix to release the third fma game in the us. i called em twice, gave them my contact info twice, and was advised to email their support group.

i sent them a very long email about the various reasons they should bring the game over, i pimped my petition and i offered "to be a potential investor" (...which is basically a lie, but i figured what the hell)

even so, this is the reply i got.

Thank you for contacting Square Enix Customer Support,

We hope this letter answers your questions.

Our parent company, SQUARE ENIX Co., Ltd. of Japan, has no current plans to release that particular title at this time. This is not to say that it will never happen, it's just that SQUARE ENIX of Japan is currently focusing on numerous other projects.

We hope this information has been of assistance.

defeat at current moment. Its all due to the main company who holds the rights to the games choice. They honestly dont care if we email and ask,make petitions or anything. Sad but its true. =_=

You did try---good for you! ^-^ I've been reading your posts, but I haven't really said anything until now. I'm surprised FMA fandom has driven someone so far as to get the fan to contact Square Enix for a third release of the FMA games. You did try, and you did well. I hope they will release it eventually. Who knows? Your fight for the game may just influence their decision if they decide for or against releasing it to here ^-^

You did a really good job of trying, and I'll bet they'll remember you if they ever think about releasing it. And I don't see why they wouldn't- as soon as all the anime DVDs and the movie come out in America, FUNi or Square or SOMEONE will realize they need to make some more money. Therefore, games!

E-mail usually gives you the same reponse (I wrote an e-mail asking about the 3rd game, and I think I got the same reply).

I dunno if you can send in a letter by snail mail, but they might listen to that more then e-mail. I think they just give the same recycled response everytime you ask about a game release.

You know what's got them so tied up? It's those FFVII fans who have been hounding them for a remake (and the rest) for god knows how long. And the Enix part is just money grabbing if you ask me. Squaresoft would have gladly listened to us and made a decent stab at the games.

We should get as annoying as the VII fanbase were and still are. If their sheer tenacity can actually get them the remake that Square-Enix were so determined they would never get, it can get us that third game (and maybe even get it to the UK, although that might be pushing our luck a bit).

Slightly offtopic annoyance aside, I say it's time to rethink the plan of action.
