Square-Enix Reveals E3 Lineup
For the past few months, we've been wondering if we'd see Final Fantasy XIII at E3, and we kept getting conflicting reports from several sources. Some claimed Square-Enix most certainly had something to display while others said they'd be skipping E3 and unveiling more FFXIII goodness at their upcoming private party in August. Well, it appears to be the latter.
Square-Enix has revealed their E3 2008 lineup, and as you can see, there is no Final Fantasy XIII or Final Fantasy Versus XIII. Furthermore, although we knew The Last Remnant was a multiplatform title, we had hoped the new Star Ocean would be as well. Unfortunately for PlayStation 3 owners, Star Ocean: The Last Hope falls only under the Xbox 360 category. It also reminds us that Remnant will debut first on Microsoft's console and come later on the PS3. Here's the list:
- The Last Remnant (Multi)
- Song Summoner: The Unsung Heroes (iPod)
- Chrono Trigger (DS)
- Dragon Quest: Chapters of the Chosen (DS)
- Final Fantasy IV (DS)
- Star Ocean: First Departure (PSP)
- Star Ocean: Second Evolution (PSP)
- Infinite Undiscovery (Xbox 360)
- Star Ocean: The Last Hope (Xbox 360)
It used to be that if you were a RPG fan, you absolutely had to own Sony's console in either of the last two generations. But so far in this generation, it seems more logical to have the 360, which has already seen the likes of Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey and which, obviously, will be getting some Square-Enix love. As for PS3 owners, guess we'll just have to wait for more info on FFXIII...hopefully not much longer.
