Square Enix reveals new franchise

Unreal Engine 3-powered The Last Remnant to focus more heavily on the Western audience

Continuing to bolster the flood of announcements primed for this weekend's Square Enix Party, the company has revealed The Last Remnant, a new RPG franchise set to focus on the Western audience.

Earlier this year the RPG powerhouse confirmed that it had licensed the stupidly-popular Unreal Engine 3 - and it looks like this is the game that's using the Epic tech.

The not much info going around on the new franchise yet, apart from its simultaneous release in both Japan and North America (with us hopefully getting it within a year after that, if we're good).

Look for more details to emerge from Square Enix's bash this weekend.
