  • Solomon_Kano

    Good. We’ll finally get to see more XV.

    God, that was awful. But I’m hyped!

    • Neophoton

      I’m just as hyped, even if it feels rather silly to be hyped after waiting for so long.

      • Solomon_Kano

        Funny, isn’t it? This game was announced the summer before I started middle school. Now I’m about to start college, and I’m STILL excited for this!

        I’m almost mad at myself for still wanting this lol.

        • Neophoton

          You’re making me feel like an old lady in the making. I was about to start high school when this was announced, and I’m pretty much done with university.

          Though I feel the same. :’D I kept telling myself not to care about vaporware, but I’d cling to just about any source of news mumbled regarding the game.

          • 하세요

            And people thought BioShock Infinite’s delay was bad. I’ve been waiting for this moment for 7 years.

        • Please be excited.

          • Solomon_Kano


    • Ryujin

      Would definitely love to see XV in action again, preferably some unedited gameplay so we can get a feel for the game’s pace.

      Loved the interaction between the different party members, though. Shoot a man in the chest and exchange a casual high five with a bro, because why the hell not.

      • Anime10121

        I want more Stella! We havent really focused on Stella since the trailers of them talking at the ball all those years back BEFORE Square made all dem changes.

        • Ryujin

          Oh yeah, I wonder how she fits into the story. Back when we saw that trailer, it looked like she and Noctis had similar powers.

          Also, Stella (technically Stella Artois) is a kind of beer here in Belgium. Just throwing that out there. :P

          • Anime10121

            As far as I know, her actual “character” hasn’t changed much. I just wanna see more of her interacting with people, or at least more than a .5 second render shot that was shown at the end of the E3 trailer.

        • EX+

          You know in the beginning of the trailer at E3, when their was a 1st person view of Noctis being grabed by that girl? I think that was Stella, taking Noctis somewhere after or before that accident Noctis had that Nomura mentioned. And those two voices were Stella and Noctis talking at an older age.

          • Anime10121

            It was definitely Stella, but that was only her back running away from the camera as a child. I want to see her new model in either her old outfit, or the ballroom one!

  • komiko12

    I agree. The line up is impressive. Still, many of them are from Square Enix’s big 3.

    • Solomon_Kano

      True. 4 FFs, 2 KHs, 2 DQs.

      • komiko12

        They really need to have variety when it comes to IPs in the upcoming years.

        • Rhayve

          Lack of variety never stopped Nintendo, though.

          • komiko12

            I think they did a different sort of variety.

            Just look at Mario. He has platformers, RPGs, sports games, puzzle games, racers and fighters. Just need a shoot em up.

            But yeah. In a way, they lack the variety you are referring to by reusing successful IPs again and again.

        • Solomon_Kano

          Would be nice. They brought Drakengard back this year, so there’s hope for the future, I suppose. Maybe we’ll see the return of some other PS2 era IP. Maybe even some PS1 IP they left behind.

  • LightningFarron19

    First Square releases a a video showing the development process of Lightning Returns and now this.

    Geez Square, why don’t you send out 5 Golden Tickets while you are at it? XD

    • Solomon_Kano

      Ali Hillis’ voice was made for narration, man. Good God, I would buy audio books with her voice — and I hate audio books.

      • Chris Yuen

        :confession: part of the reason why I brought SMTIV was so that I could hear Ali Hillis addressing me as Master.

        • Sakurazaki

          I knew she sounded familiar :(

        • Solomon_Kano

          Not a bad reason haha.

        • ShadowDivz

          There’s isn’t a thing wrong with that… And i think i might do the same.

      • OathkeeperSoraXIII

        YES! This!

      • ShadowDivz

        Seconded. I think the main reason i was able to finish 13 was because of her voice. I just wanted to hear more of it.

        It’s so strong, yet feminin.
        And sexy…. unbelievably sexy.

        Maybe that last part is just me. >_>

        • deadMastershiro

          You are not alone with that last part.

          • ShadowDivz

            Okay good. xD
            Feels less weird now.

        • Solomon_Kano


          I love her voice, but it didn’t help me through XIII in the least, unfortunately.

  • RisukuAozora

    Wait, since when was Call of Duty under Square? o.O’

    • Solomon_Kano

      Many moons now. They publish the series in Japan. They also publish Assassin’s Creed, I believe.

      • RisukuAozora

        Ah, ok. I don’t really follow Call of Duty much, so thanks for clearing that up for me. :)

        • Solomon_Kano

          No prob. I’d imagine it’s not something most people know. They publish a lot of stuff in Japan that people wouldn’t expect.

  • Reiko_Chan

    Alli Hillis’ voice is everything. ;-;

  • PhoenixDownX99

    Hopefully we’ll get a release date for FFX/X-2 HD.

  • Unlimax

    Looking forward ..

    Please new Parasite Eve at TGS Please Please PLEASE D:

    • abysswalker

      I would love that too, really miss Aya and the ANMC’s but with that lineup I’m not holding up my breath, at least not this year

    • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

      I would break down to tears of happiness if they brought a “real” Parasite Eve teaser to TGS.

    • Umar Ver 1.Happy

      After 3rd birthday….I’m too upset about the ending

    • Ronldbx6

      OMG YES! I would love for Square-Enix to announce the 4th birthday or the next Parasite Eve game for home consoles. PLEASE!

  • Neophoton

    FFXV and DOD3 make the line up for me. <3

    • Solomon_Kano

      Same. Crazy as it is to consider, I’ve actually been waiting for a new Drakengard the same length of time as XV…

      • Rayhan PromisedGallery

        funny that they have very different lineup of characters
        one full of girls (gonna get murdered), one is boyband

        • Solomon_Kano

          Dat balance

  • JustThisOne

    Drakengard 3 gameplay videos, please! :>

  • NightzeroAX

    About goddamn time.

  • Anime10121

    Square Enix, keep pumping out lineups like this, and I will forever <3 you!
    (also localize Drakengard 3 kthxbai)

    • Arcana Wiz

      Yes really interested on Drakengard ^.^
      All that stories and messed up girls picked up my interest.

    • Rayhan PromisedGallery

      i TRULY love Drakengard, with my INNERMOST soul!!

  • $61526767

    Great, already happy to see more Kh3, FF XV at TGS.. the wait begins. But, I would love to see more of Stella in the next trailer.

  • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

    This is one of the better lineups from them that we’ve seen in a long while. I’m actually kind of excited (though, I’m expecting it’ll just be short videos for KHIII and FFXV for the public).

  • Ethan_Twain

    That’s unusually proactive for Square Enix Japan. I was expecting both Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy to go on silent lockdown for another year at least.

  • Skeptika Crediblus

    Don’t touch Squall’s shoulder, Cloud. He hates to be touched…

  • angelx03

    Please confirm ANY playable female characters in FF15, please especially Stella, Square!!!

  • Umar Ver 1.Happy

    I wonder if we are going to see actual kingdom hearts gameplay…man I can’t help that I am excited for XV..I am so cautious after everything SE had done this gen…but damn I am so excited….

    • Ronldbx6

      I’m actually more interested in the plot.

      • Umar Ver 1.Happy

        Of kh3? If you are talking about XV then you are not alone on that one….the plot has been one of the things that had kept my interest. It’s dark and mature and I’m so excited to see more

        • Ronldbx6

          Oh, I was talking about KH3. I’m more interested in the story how it’s going to unfold. We’ve all been waiting a long time for this EPIC conclusion.

          • Umar Ver 1.Happy

            Indeed, the end of Xehanort…but I wonder where will KH go from there…hopefully not back to handhelds lol … well I like the Handheld versions too


    I’ve probably never been this excited for TGS. <3 Hoping a Dissidia game or a Type-0 sequel gets announced. I'm probably putting my hopes too high though.

    • komiko12

      I would love either.
      Dissidia would look great with the purty gwaphics.

    • Solomon_Kano

      I don’t mean to crush dreams, but you can probably give up on a Type-0 sequel happening anytime soon, since Tabata is co-director on FF XV with Nomura.

  • HerosLight

    – Kingdom Hearts 2.5 Remix, calling it now.
    – Hoping for a new Dissidia game as well.
    – Small KH3 gameplay I hope?
    – FFXV info overload.

    • Umar Ver 1.Happy

      Dissidia on Vita….my heart…it skips a beat…da dum

      • 하세요

        Now that would make me actually get a Vita. Not exactly sure what they could do story-wise though (as if anyone cared much for the story). Another prequel?

        • Umar Ver 1.Happy

          lol man that story is too hard to follow and a bit too complicated, it sufficed for the game, but in all honesty I wouldn’t care about the story…throw in some sub-characters like auron or vincent then I’m cool!!

          • Ric Vazquez

            Thumbs up for everything said above!

        • Spicydicey

          Really I’d like them to completely ditch the story. Just start something new with characters from each game!

    • Arcana Wiz

      Dissidia, on ps3/4 high quality models, three characters per series, and maybe with the tactics characters, i would die from hype.

      • WITH online play… THAT would be a GODSEND.

      • Steven Lamphere

        Frankly I was disappointed that they didn’t put A SINGLE additional character from FF6 or FF9. With so many options in FF6 there really was no excuse, frankly I was hoping for either Gau or Edgar, or even Celes. And I just want to play as Vivi from 9. I don’t really care about the others as much. I loved Vivi and Kuja from that game.

        • Arcana Wiz

          yes, they really need to add more FF5, FF6 and FF9 characters… it’s a opportunity in years of seeing these characters in official 3d models! And i really want more focus on older characters… 012 put light as the leader and main character…. really wanted to see more interactions, and play as the oppossing side.

    • Ronldbx6

      Definitely need a new Dissidia. I hope it’s for PS3 and Vita.

  • ReidHershel

    I hope Drakengard 3 gets some sort of localization announcement, and the fact that KH3 and FFXV being shown at TGs means the games aren’t super early in development.
    Which also means the second they come out, I need a PS4, “yaaaaay” says my wallet.

  • Syed Sameer Rahman

    Hopefully it’ll be a proper exhibition of the games and not just tidbits from the press….cuz that would completely kill my new PR angle with SE =I

  • $36598391

    so they’re not going to announce when Dragon Quest VII 3DS is coming to NA?

    • Solomon_Kano

      At the Tokyo Game Show?

      Not too high a chance of that, no.

  • cloudcaelum

    KHIII: “Kept you waitting ha, Gooooosh”…

    Finally no crying at TGS news, we got what we want, even KHIII, dam, now we need Dissidia for Vita. :P Humans are greedy.

    • Arcana Wiz

      Totally greed, really want dissidia 3, but really happy fir this year SE lineup. :P

    • Ronldbx6

      I want the next Dissidia game to be on PS3 and VIta. I don’t have a vita, so I would be missing out.

      • Firekitty

        Dissidia on a big screen would be so sexy…It was such a nice-looking game.

    • Firekitty

      New Dissidia for Vita, with remasters of the first two included. Make it happen, SE, before I break down and buy the digital version.

  • Maumac77

    Really looking forward to hearing more about Drakenguard 3 and FFXV. Not really expecting too much from Kingdom Hearts 3, but at the very least a story trailer and knowing a few of the worlds we’ll get to travel to would be nice. Also the model’s for Riku, Kairi, and Axel if they’ve changed at all :3

    • Arcana Wiz

      :D Yes really want to know how The cast is… and maybe some hints about the game too please…..

      • Maumac77

        Kinda wishing they got armor like Ventus, Aqua, and Terra had in BBS, but I don’t remember if there was a reasoning they had it or not

        • Arcana Wiz

          they have the armor cause they needed it to travel between worlds….

          • Maumac77

            Oh yea…..they can’t breathe in space…

          • OathkeeperSoraXIII

            It was because the lanes between are close to the darkness and the armor was to protect them. Hence the reason Terra activated his armor before Xehanort took over his body- To try and keep his darkness out

          • Maumac77

            <_< …….I'll stay quiet for now xP

          • OathkeeperSoraXIII


  • dragoon_slayer12

    I can’t wait to see more of FFXV and KHIII. I kind of hope x(chi) gets ported for either the 3ds or Vita. Seems like an interesting concept, but I’m not down with those micro transaction f2p games.

  • Arcana Wiz

    this is the reality?

    • Anime10121

      Reality within the dream :P

      • Arcana Wiz

        please never wake me up…. and now you made me remember eternal sonata, which i never beat.

        • Anime10121

          Dont feel bad, I beat it once when I had my 360, but when I got it for PS3, I never even made it to the new exclusive parts. Just feels like I have no incentive to go back. Wasnt a bad game by any means, there have just been MUCH better released since then.

    • Solomon_Kano

      A fantasy based on reality.

      • Arcana Wiz

        i was really hoping that someonereplied this phrase, now i’m excited for XV!

  • OathkeeperSoraXIII

    Wow, possibly the best line-up Square has had for TGS.
    Drankengard 3.
    FFX|X-2. Awesome

    • Arcana Wiz

      Hype meter 120%

    • almostautumn

      And who knows; maybe even some them will release within 5 years!

      • OathkeeperSoraXIII

        I think they will all be released within 2 and a half years. I predict FFXV to be released Fall 2014 and KH some time in 2015. Maybe early 2016

        • Firekitty

          I think an early 2015 date was recently leaked for FFXV by a Spanish retailer…So late 2014 is probably about right for the JP release.

          I doubt we’ll see KH3 until at least 2016, though, since all we’ve seen so far is a mock-up. More likely 2.5 will come out in 2015, and if we’re lucky, 3 will be ready by late 2016.

          • Steven Higgins

            But there is a one game a year plan in place for KH until III is released, so there has to be something next year. If they’re not going to release KHIII until 2016, then they may need to re-visit the option of making BbSV2.

          • OathkeeperSoraXIII

            I really can’t see them releasing 2.5 in 2015. Unless they make the HD ReMIX for PS4. They already stated the point of these HD ReMIX’s were to have all the KH games on one console. So having it release on PS3 in 2015 would be a very bad move by them imo.
            I’m almost 99% sure they’ll release it next year. I still think KH3 will be done by late 2015 early 2016. Since it’s the team that made BBS and Nomura’s team is concentrating on FFXV. There’s nothing slowing either team down.
            Unless the Osaka team start working on BBSvol2. Although I think in an interview a year or two back Nomura said it was just an idea that never got any further than that. I hope i’m wrong, I loved BBS xD

  • Ronldbx6

    Dang it! I don’t feel like waiting 23 long days.

  • Shady Shariest

    Oh my dear god, the blondes face in the thumb is disfigured >_<'
    Edit: Cleaning glasses, just bony.

  • Pdugna

    Nice but one thing that seemed off was seeing Call of Duty on there…but i guess they publish it in Japan it seems…?

    • Arcana Wiz

      you’re right they publish western games in japan.

  • Warboss Aohd

    oh man, KZ iz gonna flip out.

  • fearlubu

    Wait a minute, what is this Kingdom Hearts X [chi]?

    by god, if its another social game…

  • That lineup. Hellz yeah =^_^=

  • xzeldax3

    All I want is a PC release for FFXV! Especially since PS4/Xbone games are using the same architecture, and the rumors of a PC release…I need it!!!

    • EX+

      Hate to bust your bubble, but I doubt it, mainly because of the fact that SE Japan doesn’t really support the PC.

      • xzeldax3

        I know there is probably a 1% chance, but the reason I even have a hype bubble is because of some hints dropped in interviews by the devs. I honestly think it would be revolutionary because rarely any Japanese devs port to PC.

  • EX+

    I’m gonna need to buy some new pants.
    Anyways they’ve confirmed they’re making another HD KH remaster, so 2.5, hopefully a little bit of an earlier localisation. FFXV demo and gameplay trailer, as well as info blaze and KH3 gameplay trailer and I hope a 5 min demo. More info on that as well. I wanna see Riku, Kairi and Roxas on the new engine.
    This lineup might just win TGS for Square.
    Also, does anyone else think the graphics in KH3 look like a next gen version of the engine in Star Ocean: Last Hope?

  • Göran Isacson

    Ooooh man, dat. LINEUP. Though I do wonder how many will sit and wait eagerly for the trailers of Wolfenstein and Drakengard, and how many will flip their lids when whatever teasers or countdowns for actual teasers for Kingdom Hearts and FFXV show up…

    And who knows- maybe there will even be a playable demo or two there?

  • Quacker

    Where the fuck is my FFX HD release date square.

  • Monterossa

    Terrible. I’m gonna get 2 Nomura’s games to start a new era of console…

  • deadMastershiro

    Drakengard 3 is my main priority.

  • Alestaos

    Like others i would love a dissidia on the vita or ps3 (maybe both), the hours i played both dissidia were just full of fun experiences. I may be mistaken or it maybe released now but wssn’t there a Dragon Quest remake VII being done for the 3DS, i have heard nothing of it bar for a few screens way back when. Is this a different game and im confused or im on the right track but no word for NA/EU release

    • Testsubject909

      Dissidia on Vita/PS3/PS4 would be quite nice.

      And this time they better get Terra right too.

  • Guest

    Can’t age or have children?

    Sound like the manga/anime, Kamisama no Inai Nichiyoubi (Sunday Without God).

  • leingod

    Hey, it’s Cloud and Zack!

    Anyway. I’m more hyped about KH 3 than FF XV for some reason.

    • Anime10121

      Understandable, since KH3 has just FINALLY been announced, and for more or less, we’ve known about XV for almost a decade now…

      I’m equally hyped for both though :D

  • Vash bane

    that would be the perfect time for us to…
    -puts on sunglasses-

    to stalk youtube

  • Learii

    I only care about FF XV

  • Xay-Rax

    Brand new parasite eve and or final fantasy type 0 please please. Or revival of the chrono series.

  • Jerry Hu

    I just interesting in Drakengard 3 becaue only on PlayStation 3.

  • Ducked


    lets talk Kingdom Hearts III!
