Square USA is Back (Sorta...)

Avatar Reality, Inc., a game development co. founded a little over a year ago, is hoping to revive Hawaii's gaming industry with Blue Mars, an online multiplayer game set to launch next year. The co. had hired dozens of former Hawaii-based Square USA employees who'd been cast to the wind after the failure of "Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within."
