    there’s a game missing that should be on that list.
    hmmmm but i can’t quite put my finger on it…

    what was it again? final … versuuuu…
    meh i forgot

    • Trace Wysaske

      …so did Square Enix.

    • Paradox me

      They’ve said the game has evolved considerably since its last showing, and so even if it were to show up at this year’s TGS (which I doubt it will), it probably wouldn’t be slapped on a list for all the world to see; I imagine it would make an appearance in the form of a big, hyped surprise ‘reveal’.

      •  Shouldn’t we be past secret ‘closed theather’ showings when it comes to Versus?

        • Bloodmeat

          I think he means that it will be added later in there. Maybe a week before the event.

    • I dunno about that. After that big rumour fiasco, I doubt they can leave this unaddressed at TGS. My guess is that maybe it’ll show up as the big-bang surprise, or as a mini “we’re-still-alive-and-kicking” presentation.

  • imaguni

    I’d personally be more surprised if they didn’t add LR:XIII to the list at least.

  • TouchSatori

    What about “Star Burial Dragnir” for iOS. only game i care about..

    •  Already released in Japan a couple of weeks ago, it’s being released in the west soon I believe?

  • Isn TWEWY Solo Remix out??

    •  Yup. But they’re taking this chance to push it up some more I guess.

    • Anime10121

      All companies try and show off recently released titles in hopes to promote them more to potential customers. Its just like how Namco is showing their Eureka 7 AO/Hybrid disc (among a couple others) at TGS that has already seen release there.

  • I’m saddened by the lack of anything kingdom hearts

    • Paradox me

      We just got a super neato Kingdom Hearts like a month ago, yo.

      • Anime10121

        I very much agree with you Paradox me, but I’d at the very least like to see an HD collection (however unlikely that may be, considering this is Square, who announced an HD release of X-BY ITSELF- a year ago, and still has no info about it) announced for the past 5 years, there has been a KH title released every year, and with no more announced titles, next year may be the first in a while that we will miss a year of KH.

        • KHSoraKeyBlade

           The gap for us Europeans between 2006 (KH2) and 2009 (Days) was too painful.

          Why oh why could we not have been given Re:CoM.

        • Domii

          Yeah. I actually like Square games as I’m really looking forward to Absolution and Tomb Raider, but I just hate the way they manage their internal affairs. They have to get their priorities straighten out when it comes to their inner games, and stop relying on Eidos to bail them out.

  • Edgar Garcia

    Project Crystallis project. Lets gets Type-0 and Versus xiii info/release date/news. No more wait a little longer,If your interested heres the link 


    • Herok♞

       Type-0 is out in Japan they have no need to release news for it, unless they were announcing dlc or something.

  • Beta Tabe

    Come on KH III, pleeeeeease! D8

    • Anime10121

      NOT happening, considering they are STILL working on Vs. after all this time.  Its been confirmed many times that KH3 wont start until at least the foundations of Vs. were finished.

      But honestly, considering its taking so long for Vs., I’m actually with you in hoping that KHIII will actually show.  What I’m hoping is that Vs. is actually almost finished, and that they are just waiting to finish the FFXIII trilogy before releasing it.  If thats the case, there is a possibility that work has started on KH3 and they may show/announce it (although, its still unlikely considering Square should have learned by now, to not announce titles that are years away from release).

      • KHSoraKeyBlade

         After the announcement of Lightning Returns I am under the impression that Versus will not even have any new info until that game has at the very least a release date.

        I’d like to be very optimistic that some kind of Kingdom Hearts title is being currently worked on (whether it be a HD Collection/KH3 or that “light” game they talked about). Given the recent releases of KH it would be far too weird not seeing it at TGS in any form.

        Still though, Bravely Default is making an appearance so… yay.

  • Talbot

    Meh, very little here gets me excited, other than perhaps Hitman and Bravely. Sleeping Dogs I already have (and it’s awesome, so I hope Japan likes it too), and as good as FFXIV 2.0 looks, I’m not an MMO person and neither will I have the time to invest in it – especially when there’s also a monthly fee.

  • James Keeton

    The thing I’m most looking forward to seeing is the PS3 version of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn – if the interface is nice, I might buy that version as well just to play on my TV as opposed to my laptop when I’m not in the mood for small-screen gaming. Just in general I’m also looking forward to seeing more of the redesigned areas and the new features – maximum respect for Yoshi-P’s team for what they’ve done and what they’re doing :)

    • Evan Groman

      You do realize you can just connect your laptop to your TV with an HDMI cable or something, right?

      • James Keeton

        Yes, but the PS3 version will have a different interface optimized for controller play according to Yoshida. Also, Trophies :)

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    ???I thought Gyrozetter there is also developed for 3DS isn’t it? and does the list here does not mention any new secret title like Bamco’s? or SE is not intending to announce there?

    • Anime10121

      Square tends to not announce that they will have surprises, and opts to actually surprise people with announcements/videos at the show rather than tell people beforehand (well at least that’s how Square USED to do things, dont know if thats continuing this year though).

  • I hope there will be some surprises.

  • where’s FFX HD ???

    • Evan Groman

      They’re either not showing it now, or they haven’t added it to the list yet. This is just the initial list, you see.

  • Hmm…yay for Bravely Default…! And that’s about it. This list isn’t too impressive I’m afraid, which is a shame because SE has some interesting titles in the works that could easily turn some heads, if they were to show them at the show. I’m aware that this list isn’t final, but still…

    Where’s FF XIII-3? FF X HD? That game which they teased back then with some concept art, a dude with a cowboy hat?

  • malek86

    I don’t see many surprises, but then, I guess they wouldn’t be surprises if they announced them in advance.

    So maybe we are gonna see something new? I assume Squenix is gonna have a press conference, most major publishers do.

  • Rizki Riansyah Maulana

    yep, even SE not even wanted to help Vita at all.

  • Anime10121

    So unless they have some serious surprises under their belt (which I hope to be the case, because usually the surprises at TGS are actually surprises and not announced on the press releases), they are showing absolutely NOTHING NEW that isnt already announced/ports. And even at TGS their Western console releases outnumber their own :(

    And to make matters worse, most of those are Japan ONLY releases, Its starting to look VERY sad for western Square fans, well at least, the few of us there are left :(

  • Domii

    Hopefully that’s not the final list because it looks really weak so far.

  • No Type 0 huh?  Not surprised.  I would have expected a international version but I expected some decency.  I am surprised Lord of Vermilion is being shown though.

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      ? Type 0 already out in Japan long ago. And this is TGS, so it surely not going to have any news for us on the west.

    • Herok♞

      Type-0 is a game from last year that was released it has most of its sales why would they still be showing it at the tokyo game show?

      •  True, but an International version for another system is likely to release in Japan first.

        • Herok♞

           I thought they only did edited versions after the game was released in other regions to include content that was in the other regions but not Japan, or was there dlc I am unaware of for Type-0. I would love to see it on a different system so it has a chance to come out in the U.S. but as things stand I don’t think they would do that unless it was along side a localization announcement since it did excellently last year.

          •  Yeah well, if SE had plans for Vita I think the way it is doing right now worries them.

          • Herok♞

             Vita just needs a few really good games and it will be fine.

  • Uh… okay.
    *expecting surprise*

  • Learii

    they don’t even show FF VS 13 this year or any vita games, Square-Enix is a big letdown this year

    • Not quite, it was to be expected they wouldn’t talk about Versus yet.
      KH 3D and while not properly teased TWEWY 2 now being hinted pretty much made my year.

      • Learii

        but is been 7 years and we haven’t see Versus anywhere if is been 1 or 2 years  that ok but 7  years gosh

        • Do what I do, keep your excitement and pretend Versus was never teased.

          My hype for Versus already died, when they tease it again with an accurate release date I’ll pretend Im watching a Versus tease for the first time, my hype will get ignited as much as back then, guaranteed.

          • Learii

            lol i guess but ya my excitement about versus half gone already gone

            @MrRobbyM   7 years is still too early? i think 7 years is too long because games suppose to be out like 3-5 years before they announced not 7 years and i hope FF XIII Lighting Return the last one because FF XIII too long i never see a sega done 3 games expect KH

          • My guess is that by the time they teased Versus they didn’t had a clear idea about the Fabulla Nova Crystalis timeline and I believe LR:XIII will lead indirectly to Versus so at some point they thought “Oops, we goofed” so they are waiting until Light saga is over.

    • MrRobbyM

      It’s still too early to show off Versus. They just announced FFXIII-3(whatever it’s called) and FFXIV update isn’t even out. When they’re done with all the FFXIII games is when they’ll show off Versus

    • Luna Kazemaru

       *sighs* know what never mind

      • Learii

        i know what you mean -_-

  • XYZ_JolteonZ980

    Gyrozetter, if they can actually have some representation of what the anime that is airing this fall will show that would be good, really only thing Im excited about that is listed here.

  • Kevi Johnson-el

    Sadly bravely default is the only game I wanna see from that list,still have hope for a ffv13 video!

    • Neophoton

       Likewise, Bravely’s all I can look forward to. I wouldn’t hold my breath for any footage for Versus for the public, though.

  • Bravely Default and Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn please.

  • No Versus? Lame

  • The wise one

    Final fantasy versus 13 please

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    I don’t really care about Versus XIII but whats up with no FFX HD? I was hoping it would release this year.

    • Dexward

      Nope. Only thing SE said about it is that they’re working on it.

  • $3587643

    Versus confirmed for vaporware.

  • DCBlackbird

    Huh forgot about versus school y’know

  • Abel.exe

    The fack is wrong with Square Enix and this sudden iOS obsession?!

  • SE……why….why are you doing this to us, atleast talks on FFVSXIII will get our hopes up….but nothing is just nerve wracking T_T
