As conference fatigue sets in, will Square Enix keep the E3 hype train going?
The seventh briefing event in three days, Square Enix is going to have their work cut out for them in terms of keeping excitement going.
The game most expected to be dominating the event is Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, and Square Enix is likely to have a good slice of gameplay ready. We can also probably look forward to a look at Just Cause 3, as that title is due in the fourth quarter of 2015.
Rise of the Tomb Raider will probably be some action, but it’s also possible that we’ll have already seen the majority of what Square Enix is bringing at the Xbox Briefing on Monday, owing to the game’s status as a timed exclusive.
There’s a chance of a nod to Kingdom Hearts III, but anything more than that is unlikely. Director Tetsuya Namura stated back in April that more news on that series would be coming at this year’s Japan D23 expo in November. Final Fantasy, however, may come into the spotlight following on the heels of Type-0 and its limited release demo of Final Fantasy XV.
We do know that Square Enix has at least one unannounced title for the show, though whether its a new IP or something pulled from the publisher’s existing franchises is anyone’s guess. And we can’t (despite effort) forget about Nosgoth, the online multiplayer game based on the Legacy of Kain series which started an open beta earlier this year. If they haven’t given up on it, they’ll probably try to encourage more people to give it a shot.
