Square Enix and The Curse of the Title

Some people say that Squaresoft (now known as Square Enix ever since that merger) really should have had a better title than Final Fantasy when making a game that ended up having lots of sequels*. However I just read a press release stating, SQUARE ENIX SHIPS FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST™ 2: CURSE OF THE CRIMSON ELIXIR. Fullmetal Alchemist 2: Curse of the Crimson Elixir; seriously... April the 1st was a long time ago you know. Maybe they should just stick with Final Fantasy XXIX.

* Final Fantasy was released just as Squaresoft were running out of money; they assumed it was going to be their last title.

You can't really change the name of a franchise which you have bought the rights to. "Full Metal Alchamist" is an Anime series (and quite possibly a Manga as well).

Ah, I see. I'll let them off then. Just this once though. Next time I'm protesting outside their office.
