Here’s a full rundown of every Square Enix game PAX West 2023 attendees can expect to find.

Final Fantasy VII Ever Crisis

Final Fantasy VII Ever Crisis, the mobile remake of the Final Fantasy VII timeline, will be playable on the show floor ahead of its release on September 7, 2023. Square Enix have not revealed which portions of the game will be playable, but it’s likely that they will feature some of the new young Sephiroth storyline.

Square Enix will also be holding a raffle during the show. Anyone who pre-registers the game at the booth can win an Ever Crisis t-shirt.

Final Fantasy XVI

While Final Fantasy XVI will not be playable on the show floor, Square Enix will be hosting a panel on September 2, 2023. Localization Director Michael-Christopher Koji Fox will be chatting with voice actors Ben Starr, Jonathan Case, Stewart Clarke and Nina Yndis about their work on the game.

The panel will be taking place in the Main Theater, but it will also be streamed live on the PAX1 Twitch channel.

Star Ocean The Second Story R

A remake of the second Star Ocean game, using the HD-2D visual style used by Octopath Traveler and the Live a Live remake. It’s unknown if the PAX demo will focus on the Claude or Rena route, or if a choice will be made available. This demo appears to be giving players a chance to try out the remade combat system.

Infinity Strash: Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai

This adaptation of the Adventure of Dai anime will be playable on the show floor a few weeks ahead of its launch on September 28, 2023. The game offers two modes of play – Story Mode is a standard campaign following the story of the anime, while Temple of Recollection is a roguelike dungeon crawler. Hopefully each of these will get featured in the show demo.

Foamstars

PAX West will be home to the first consumer hands-on demonstration of Foamstars, with visitors to the booth playing against each other. This multiplayer title for PlayStation systems features two teams of four battling it out using foam-based weapons. It’s drawn a lot of comparison to Nintendo’s Splatoon franchise, so this will be the ideal time to see how those comparisons hold up.

Little Goody Two Shoes

The first of two games on the show floor from Square Enix Collective, the company’s indie support arm. Little Goody Two Shoes is a homage to RPGs from the PS1 and PS2 eras, with a horror-tinged atmosphere. Gameplay will be split between a life sim during the day and a dark adventure through the woods at night.

PowerWash Simulator

The second Square Enix Collective game, PowerWash Simulator will be on the show floor. Developers FuturLab will be showcasing new content that is set to be added to the game. Square Enix will also be hosting a panel on September 1, 2023 focused on the game. Staff from the game’s Marketing and Community teams will be sharing stories of the game’s inception and how it came to be a success. This panel will be held in the Bluejay Theater and streamed live on the PAX2 Twitch channel.

PAX West will be held on September 1-4, 2023.
