Square Enix announces Android store

Square Enix is to launch its own Android download store, the Square Enix market, in Japan.

Among the games promised for the service are the original Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest Monsters Most Wanted, a port of iOS game Chaos Ring, and Crystal Defenders. Titles planned for the future include Itadaki Street and a port of beloved SNES RPG Chrono Trigger.

The Square Enix Market will launch in Japan on December 1, and be exclusive to customers of KDDI, with Softbank and Docomo to follow, according to Andriasang.

The move is further evidence of the publisher's committment to Android following the announcement in September of Square Enix's partnership with Sony Ericsson, which will see Lara Croft And The Guardian Of Light released exclusively for Xperia Play in November, with more of the publisher's titles to follow.
