Wednesday Morning News

On Monday, a press conference was held in Tokyo to announce a stock purchasing agreement between Enix, Namco, and Square. At the event were executives from all three companies including Enix president Yasuhiro Fukushima, Square president Hisashi Suzuki, and Namco president Masaya Nakamura. Currently, all three executives own shares in each other's companies. In an effort to strengthen their relationship, Namco, Enix, and Square plan to equally trade 4-5% of their outstanding shares with each other in the future. It's currently unknown how this "strengthening of relationships" is going to effect further plans between the companies, but who knows, maybe all three companies will develop an RPG together.
