Square Enix is working its way around Eidos' sphere grid of stock holders and leveling up for, what appears to be, its inevitable takeover of the British publisher. GI.biz reports that two major Eidos investors have sold 11.13 percent of the publisher's total stock to the Moogle master at 32 pence a share.

Using fancy business language, Square Enix claims it has "irrevocable undertaking" of 32 percent to vote in favor of the acquisition. That may be the "irrevocable" figure, but we learned Squenix previously had about 45 percent -- chances are, that number has gone up. It appears that Square Enix will finally get that Western developer it's been craving for a while.
