Several Square stories shared

   Several tasty tidbits of Squaresoft information have been revealed by fellow IGN site Gaming-Age, and their Japanese news correspondent, Ike Sato.

   Firstly, Square of Japan seems to be developing Final Fantasy VIII to take advantage of a Dual Shock controller. The controller has two analog controls, in addition to the standard directional pad. It isn't known what kind of features the controller will give the game, although we can expect that the latest title in the Final Fantasy series won't require the newer controller to play.

   The next RPG-related tidbit to be revealed is that Square seems set to announce a sequel to one of their existing series. The most popular guesses as to what the series may be are the SaGa, or the Seiken Densetsu series (otherwise known as Secret of Mana).

   In the non-RPG department, Square has also announced a new game called "Another Mind." The game is described as "conversation adventure game," and stars Megumi Matsumoto. Matsumoto was the voice of Rimururu in the Samurai Shodown/Spirits series. The game is expected to be released in the fall, and a demo is rumored to be included with Brave Fencer Musashi later this month in addition to the FFVIII demo.

   Additionally, Square and Namco's fighting game Ehrgeiz is slated for a December release on the Playstation.
