Square Enix Open New YouTube Channel For E3 Content

By Ishaan . May 23, 2013 . 2:50pm

Square Enix have set up a YouTube page where they’ll be sharing exclusive footage from their E3 showings. You can access it here.



Square say they’ll be sharing interviews with their developers. game demo walkthroughs and presentations for their upcoming games on the new channel. The channel will be broadcasting content on all three days of E3 (June 11th – 13th).

  • Chris Yuen

    Yay, more ways for Square Enix to deliver disappointing news to us. You want that TWEWY sequel? IOS port! You want Final Fantasy Versus XIII news? Nope! Still in “development”!

  • StarWarudo

    You guys think we might hear something about Versus? I get the feeling that the announced PS4 Final Fantasy game could very well be it.

    • transferstudentx

      nah i dont think its versus i am beginning to think that game dosent even exist it was all a big fat lie by them to torture us slowly for loving there old games and hating on there newer ones

      • Kevadu

        That is, unfortunately, quite possible.

    • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

      Possible, but not getting myself hyped up for that (again). Been getting burned for 7 years now and starting to get sick of pain it’s causing. =/

    • Nanaki

      I’m pretty positive we’ll hear about it! I’m curious to see if it remains a PS3 title.

    • Solomon_Kano

      Yea, I’ve been betting since the PS4’s reveal that the PS4 FF they’re teasing is Versus. It wouldn’t make sense for them to expend the resources on the ground-up development of a completely different FF and announce it while that sits in the background.

      Plus, Nomura’s said the info ban on Versus will be lifted “soon” last month. Curious timing with that PS4 FF coming, no?

      • mirumu

        That would make a lot of sense. I suspect the transition from Unreal 3 to Unreal 4 might be fairly straight forward too.

      • ShadowDivz

        I honestly hope they annouce a brand new final fantasy. Just to piss off all the people who want versus to be released.

        Just so all the hopeful and optimistic fans who think “they are finally announcing it! yay!” get heartbroken like a poor child on christmas morn….

        And when it’s finally announced(100 years from now) it’s for the next gen of that time.

        • Solomon_Kano

          You’re evil! D:


          • ShadowDivz

            I know, but it’s getting annoying. Everytime square says something everyone is all “OMG VERSUS ANNOUCEMENT”
            And me, being…human can’t help but have a small part of me that believes it. Only to get disappointed again and again.

          • Solomon_Kano

            Do what I do: expect nothing. That way everything’s a surprise, then you just have to decide if it’s a good one or a bad one.

          • ShadowDivz

            Worth a shot. But Versus on PS4 would be a screw over.

            It’s like the highlight of the PS3… or was suppose to be.

          • Solomon_Kano

            After 7 years, I feel like anyone who honestly still expected it to be for PS3 was playing themselves.

          • ShadowDivz

            Or im just optimistic. xD

            Honestly, so far the only game i want for PS4 is watchdogs…. and it’s also on PS3(yay).

            So i guess, i just don’t WANT reason to buy PS4… not yet anyway.

  • riceisnice

    Final Fantasy Tactics A3?

    • HerosLight

      This would be nice.

      I really loved A1 and A2. (Although A1 had really strict rules, but was challenging and great)

    • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

      I would love to see a new FFT game, but not under the ‘Advanced’ branding.

      Give me a mature storyline (FFT:WotL/VS) and HD sprites (Disgaea 4/D2/Paradox) and I’ll be first in line to purchase it.

      • GibbRS

        I’m not picky. I’ll take HD sprites or 3D models, especially after seeing what they did with the 3D models in Guilty Gear Xrd. ^___^

        • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

          Oh man those models were gorgeous! I wouldn’t be mad if they went that route too!

        • Neophoton

          HD sprites a la Vanillaware would be amazing.

      • puchinri

        In other words, get Matsuno back, right~?

        • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

          Yes! Kidnap him if you have too! I’ll get the van ready!


          • puchinri

            I have the duct tape!

      • My dream FFT has the tone/setting of the original, and the clan/class system of the Advance games. You can align yourself with different factions (nobles, rebels, clergy, etc.) depending on who you take missions from, and dispatch your team to fight in large-scale battles.

        I… I’ve written a whole preliminary design document for it. I want it so much.

    • kylehyde

      For iPhone, iPad and coming soon to android. [sarcasm]yay[sarcasm]

      Talking seriously I hope we see FFT3 soon on vita and/or 3DS

  • AuraGuyChris

    Bring on the smartphone games.

  • HerosLight

    If they are making a Youtube channel, then they must have something really big to reveal.

    Just give me TWEWY 2, S.E. You know you want my money.

  • Keima88

    Sequel for TWEWY please. My favorite game for the ds.

  • Grape Monet

    Two years. Two years of Eidos games swallowing up all the coverage that would normally be reserved for Square Enix’s in-house games. Two years of every Square-Enix developed game that isn’t part of the Lightning Saga barely registering a mention at E3. Two years spent watching one of the most beloved game companies of all time slowly lose it’s identity, losing fans and money in the process. I keep telling myself, “maybe this will be the year they turn things around”, but I’m finding it very difficult to keep caring about it at all.

    • Solomon_Kano

      Except Eidos’ games are in-house, because there is no more Eidos. They’re Square Enix Europe. Now, whether that’s what you’re interested in seeing or not, they’re no less Square Enix games than Dragon Quest or Kingdom Hearts or what have you.

      I don’t know about Square Enix being “one of the most beloved game companies of all time,” either. Squaresoft was, maybe, but they’ve been gone for a looooong time now.

    • mirumu

      For me it’s been a lot longer than two years, and over that time my perspective on it all has changed a bit. I haven’t really liked anything Square/Square Enix have developed in Japan since the PS1 despite trying to make myself all through the generation that followed. Other companies like Atlus, Gust, Mistwalker and Monolith took their place in the part of my heart reserved for RPGs years ago.

      Today I think my view has mellowed. I’m not at all angry or upset about it, and I don’t hold any grudges. I just view Square Enix now as more of a minor development studio that I can mostly ignore, but I’ll check in very occasionally to see what they’re doing. I’ve no interest in going back to FF or KH at this point short of a major new direction. They’re little but nostalgia to me.

      Of course since I don’t expect anything from Square Enix at all, there’s nowhere to go but up. If they do release something new and interesting I’ll genuinely be pleased. Right now I’m cautiously optimistic about Thief 4 and Bravely Default: Flying Fairy. Also keeping an eye on Drakengard 3. No idea yet if I’ll buy any of them, but I’m happy to look at each on their own merits and decide without that old baggage coloring my perspective.

  • hypehypehypeHypEHypEHYPE HYPE HYPE!!!! HYPE HYPE HYPE!!!!!


  • Neophoton

    P-Please be excited…?

    They do seem pretty eager for E3, but I make it a point to try and not get overeager about a lot of things.

  • I hope they announce Versus XIII for Ouya

    • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

      This would be earth shattering news! So many fanboys’ minds would explode with anger, it would literally cause the Apocalypse!

    • Solomon_Kano

      They’ve actually decided to name it Versus One. And it’s a TV show.

      • Directed by Steven Spielberg.

        • Ferrick

          Co-Directed by M Night Shamalamadingdong and Michael Bay

          • mirumu

            The main protagonist will have a dog who features prominently.

          • Next-gen has arrived!

          • TV!

          • DesmaX


          • Solomon_Kano


          • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

            Call of Fantasy Versus DOGS XIII

          • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

            That’s too quiet for a Bay film. Everytime the dog barks a city will explode. Also the main character will be Lightning, a cold woman who causes huge explosion every time she travels through time. As a Shamalamanamanasamawhydoukeepreadingkun film, the final twist is that Lightning is her sister Serah from another time. Noctis you say? Who the heck is that?

        • AuraGuyChris

          In case this hasn’t been said enough…

  • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

    Other than Thief 4 and that rumored Hitman title, I’m wondering what the Eidos side of SE will bring to E3.

    But I’m not going to get hyped for the Japanese side of SE since they’ve been relatively mediocre for a while now. They have a lot to prove (imo) to bring me back on their hype train.

  • puchinri

    I want to see a return to some older stuff or more new things. Gyrozetter looks like a lot of fun and I really hope it does well for them, and I hope we see more original titles like it.

  • Suicunesol

    They might show off some Deus Ex for Wii U? That’s probably it for Wii U.

    I also want to see Tactics A3. Fat chance, though. Nowadays I’m not sure what SQ is working on.

    • Tactics A3, where the “A” stands for “Android”.

      • komiko12

        Better than having it on iOS.

  • NimbusStev

    Stop it Square! We’ve been down this road too many times before. I don’t want to get hurt again! ;_;

  • SirRichard

    There’s something they want us to see, definitely, and I’m wondering if there’s more to what they want to show than just a PS4 Final Fantasy. Perhaps just general promotion of their Eidos titles, to see if that’ll boost sales somehow?

  • kenshee

    Well this is interesting :)

    Any effort from square-enix to have better communications with their audience is already a step in the right direction.
    Their publicity regarding ff XIV: ARR is also imo very well done, they’re showing all the right things in the right ways and staying away from only showing cgi scenes.

    So here’s me hoping that this is only a prelude to the great amount of information they will start sharing from E3 onwards.

    I would guess that’s one of the biggest things they’d change about their company, being more transparent. As I think it really will pay off for them with ff XIV: ARR. (looking at you, versus <.<)

  • Solomon_Kano

    Next-gen games or:


  • solbalmung

    Incoming Lightning Returns playable demo and an anouncmement about an upcoming announcement of a not so distant FF we’ve been waiting for…
    Bring it on SE (so hyped….).

  • DesmaX

    Hm… Drakengard 3 localization?
    Or maybe it’s to soon?

    • Neophoton

      Probably too soon, though I’d love for them to announce it relatively soon. I wouldn’t expect it, though.

  • Damarius Wingfield

    *Homer simpson*: WOOHOO!

  • culip21

    i saw nothing.

  • Just Tim

    How about arcade-PERFECT console ports for:

    –Music GunGun! 2
    –Chase Battle HQ

    …to name a few?

    Oh yeah, I just remembered: expect their new YouTube channel to be bombarded with,


    to name a few.

    • Solomon_Kano

      I still want Gunslinger Stratos to get ported!


    • Kelohmello

      Fantasy Earth Zero is awesome though. I’d be asking for that too. Shoot, I want that. I’d play it.

      • Just Tim

        Were you a former player yourself? The players/guilds I remember are:

        Gev: Area, Mazeba, the entire Pandemic corps, KAMIKAZE, Adicus and Darkfang

        Hord: Sayuri, Jihyun, Chuckie, Ergheis, Uru, Nefta, Evolot, Fucer, Cowboys9, Silver57, Svia, Honette, Meepers, Valiant, Micol, Ponch, Aotsuki, SeeD, Titans, Cereal_K, so many that I find hard to namedrop them at once.

        Yels: the entire TSUNDERE guild, Namath, GM Yoh, Yupi, Lwingly, Xypher, Destiny guild, Masteria, Zfrost, Friday

        Cesedria: Michan, LAGjestic, Helhada

        Netz: the entire PHOENIX guild, Jeri, Pipp, Ytterili, Luella, Nekochan, Ichibi, and many more.

  • saxophone15

    I’m interested to see what’s coming (that includes Lightning Returns). I think the pessimism some people have is just way too over the top.

  • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

    That chair must be dirty by now

  • I’m not expecting much from them

  • Steven Higgins

    Also, in a recent interview Wada said “We have absolutely nothing planned for E3. The “booth” is just an Orange crate on top of a cardboard mat with a crudely hand painted “sQuAfc EmIk” logo on it. Nevertheless, we are going to pretend to have big news on some highly anticipated titles. So, please, be exited so that we may shatter your dreams, crush your spirits and slake our thirst by drinking deeply of your tears.”

    Aside from that, Ah! Chocobo riding music! (IDK the official title) Kwah!

  • culip21

    still saw nothing

  • FF XV versus XIII: Noctis Returns for PS4, iOS and 3DS.

    FF1-4 HHDD Remastered+ for smartphones, tablets, 3ds, Vita, PS4, Xbox One, PC, Video Player, Ipod, IRiver, Tetris, etc.

    Parasite Eve 4: Black Ops for 3ds and iOS.

  • Ferofax

    Ogre Battle for the 3DS, or no-go, Square.

  • Wake

    I hope SE at the very least hints on a FFV/FFVI remake for the 3DS.

  • Anime10121

    Ill be content if they just show SOMETHING new from their Japanese side. Last year was the worst year I had ever seen from Square, as they showed NONE of their games and just the Eidos titles (this coming from someone who <3 Tomb Raider and was looking forward to it). You don't go to Square expecting to see only a subsidiary's work in SEU, I wanna see some parent company titles.

    I know LRFFXIII and FFXIV are both all but confirmed to be there, as is the PS4 FF game, but I hope that ain't all from SEJ. Gimme MORE! I want them to come ou gunblades a blazin like they used to. As it stands, Eidos (Square Europe) already has the same amount in their lineup with Murdered Souls, the new Hitman (more than likely), and Thief 4, not even including heavily suspected titles like legacy of kain and whatever Crystal Dynamics is working on.

    I wanna hope that this year will be Squares comeback. But we'll see if their impressive lineup isn't just social iPhone crap.

  • CirnoLakes

    Please be excited for E3, indeed.

    They really seem to be making a big deal out of this event.

  • Go2hell66

    Whew even i can feel the pressure

    Please do not dissapoint….

  • cloudcaelum
  • Shariest

    Type-0 for Vita…Type-0 for Vita…

  • TheExile285

    Better not dissapoint SE….

  • Gilgamesh2025

    I think one of the announcement could be Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX.

    • Anime10121

      Now why on earth would they announce 2.5 when 1.5 has yet to be released (or even properly trailered) in America! Dont get me wrong, 2.5 is DEFINITELY coming, but I think thats more an announcement for Tokyo Game Show this year in September.

      • Gilgamesh2025

        Oh yeah … you’re absolutely right! Oops! xP

  • Vash bane

    time to lurk that channel lol

    but anyway on topic

    I wonder if they are going to show that game that looks like FF
