Square-Enix Unveils TGS 2008 Lineup
This year's Tokyo Game Show should be big for several different manufacturers, and that most certainly includes Square-Enix. We're not looking for any "megaton" announcements this time (although we still wonder about Kingdom Hearts III), but we will be looking for great new content. Hopefully.
As you can see over at the publisher's official website, they have listed the titles that will be coming to TGS 2008. Among them are Final Fantasy XIII, Final Fantasy Versus XIII, and Final Fantasy Agito XIII, even though we're disappointed that none will be playable. Those helpful little icons below each picture tells you if the title in question will be playable, and the only playable title that falls under Sony's exclusive umbrella seems to be Final Fantasy Dissidia for the PSP. We also see plenty of Kingdom Hearts up there, but no KHIII, and it's all the more disappointing to see games like Star Ocean 4 show up as Xbox 360 exclusives. And why the hell would you bring another Valkyrie Profile to the DS? Nobody who owns that system knows about VP; that's a PlayStation-oriented franchise (most recently, anyway). At least put it on the PSP, for crying out loud.
Anyway, there's Square-Enix's TGS 2008 offering, and we can only hope they're hiding a secret here and there. Otherwise, there isn't much to excite us; we've already seen plenty of FF-related videos and if nothing but Dissidia is playable, we kinda lose interest. How's about you?
