Square Enix establishes cloud gaming firm Shinra

Beta tests for new service planned for 2015

Square Enix has announced the establishment of Shinra Technologies, a cloud gaming company spearheaded by erstwhile Square Enix president Yoichi Wada.

The subsidiary, which takes its moniker from the organization in Final Fantasy VII, aims to "break the stranglehold of having a fixed amount of hardware resources." Apparently, individual game systems will be able to have their own dedicated servers, allowing a developer to create a single version of a product far more complex than what could be rendered on a console or PC.

Shinra is already working with several studios, and plans to begin beta tests in 2015.
