Tomorrow, the creators of Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest, will be welcoming Lara Croft and company to the fold. The Eidos takeover has been approved and Square-Enix has acquired the Western presence it has been looking for. The deal was announced back in February, but these things never happen overnight. Stockholder approval and government processes typically slow process.

It will be interesting to see what this marriage will bring to the gaming community. There is the potential for greatness, both entities have a wealth of experience and properties to rely on.
