    Square Enix E3 2015 Conference Discussion

    So in light of this unique event, I decided to make a thread because I don't see any other discussing the conference.

    Things that will certainly be there:

    Deus Ex Mankind Divided
    Rise Of The Tomb Raider
    Just Cause 3
    Final Fantasy XV -- confirmed to be at E3 in "a limited capacity"


    Things that will probably be there:

    Hitman 6
    Kingdom Hearts III
    New (unlikely)/remastered (likely) Final Fantasy

    Things that may/we can hope will be there:

    Star Ocean 5
    Sleeping Dogs 2
    Square Enix Collective game or two



    Obviously it's a ways off for now, but I thought I'd make this just so we have something to return to when it does come.

    For my personal opinion, I wouldn't be surprised by a release date for DE MD, maybe even this year.
    ROTTR we already know a lot about, I think they'll just show a gameplay segment.
    Just Cause 3, probably show gameplay (not much else for this game).
    FF XV--hopefully, HOPEFULLY an extended gameplay trailer. Like, 7 minutes long or something. And hopefully it involves the story quite a bit--and I would love a bustling city, Duscae has marketed the wilderness plenty. Also they should definitely bring Tabata along for this, or Haz at the very least. And I would love a release date (though it figures to be next year).

    Hitman probably just a trailer, don't know.
    Not sure about KH but we know they're trying to hurry it along, so maybe a short gameplay trailer.
    As for a new or remastered game, there are pretty heavy rumors that XII is getting the remaster treatment. It's possible we may see that.

    I personally know nothing about Star Ocean, but I'll be keeping an eye out for this game and what it looks like. If it comes to PC it's probably an auto-buy simply because Square+PC.
    Sleeping Dogs 2, almost certainly not, but I would hope that there's more going on at UFG than the MMO >.>
    And this would be a great time to show off the Square Enix Collective stuff, it doesn't seem like it gets very much exposure.

    All in all a very busy year for SE.

    ^Thanks.

    Another one is Heavensward, that will likely be showcased there too.

    Either S-E will finally stop neglecting their western Dragon Quest fans and announce English localizations of the 3DS DQ games... or this conference will be a huge waste of time. One or the other, no middle ground.

  6. #6
    Ha! Aren't they pretty far behind on localizing the DQ games? I don't know how much hope you have there...

    This is totally a shot in the dark, but SE apparently made a "sequel" video to Agni's Philosophy using Direct X 12 (http://blogs.nvidia.com/blog/2015/04/30/build-demo/).

    The video is near the bottom. Looks amazing.

    Is it possible that there could be anything from this? Dare we hope? At the very least, it's evidence of Tabata & Co. looking beyond consoles to see the power of the PC, but the fact that they're sticking with "Agni" is very interesting.

    Edit: I want to make a whole 'nother thread in the FF section asking for this tech demo to be released to us (on PC almost as a benchmark), but I'll keep it to just this little comment. Please Tabata! Back on topic.

    Double Edit: Square Enix is coming to the brand new PC E3 conference: http://www.kotaku.co.uk/2015/04/30/t...nce-for-the-pc

    This is interesting, and makes me wonder what all is going to happen at SE's E3. There may be more we don't know yet...

    I'm hoping for a new Battlestations game

    Hey! I can dream, can't I.

    Either way I will be sure to wear my depends because I know I am going to wet myself... or maybe it is just old age. I really can't wait to see what they are going to show at E3. Having been at E3 for the 2012 show I am stoked. They always have great stuff.

    Wear depends? Lol! I don't think I'll be that bad, but this should definitely be really cool.

    New Titles
    Square Enix planning new title announcements at E3 (Nova Crystallis)
    - Square Enix will be announcing several new games at E3 next month, according to president Yosuke Matsuda in a recent financial report.

    I read about that, and they also mentioned rebooting old IPs. I know they had the recent announcement about indies being able to reboot old IPs with Collective, but this seems like a Square Enix initiative rather than that.

    So Sony won E3 this year already hahhaha Who would have thought they drop this bomb today. Whoa let see what else to come tomorrow in SE conference.

  17. #17
    Just wow. Megaton already and the conference isn't even here yet! Now I know why they said they aren't showing XV :P

    Also, to say it again, that "First on PS4" thing makes it obvious it's coming somewhere, likely PC (which is very, very good news).

    Unfortunately I'll be working tomorrow (Should have taken the day off! Should have taken today off...), but I rest easy in the knowledge that Grimoire has this place taken care of.

    So let's see...

    Wasn't too much on Tomb Raider, but it looked nice. Same for Deus Ex.

    The megaton again, of course. Really they could have shown that trailer at every conference and it would be okay. The more I think about the narrator's words the more interesting I find it, because it sounds very meta, fourth-wall-breaking, just like the end of the FF XV 2013 trailer. Have to wonder where they're taking it.

    World of Final Fantasy didn't interest me too much at Sony's thing but it may be growing on me. it says "FIRST" on PS4 and Vita, so we know it's coming to other platforms, so I'll probably pick it up when it does (who am I kidding? I will buy anything FF the moment it hits Steam).

    Star Ocean 5 looked somewhat interesting, but as a PC gamer that may be out of reach for me.

    I've never played the Nier series, but anything by Platinum is bound to be good (and I noticed that there was no "PS4 only" announcement on the screen--the speaker mentioned it being developed for the PS4 but they also said that for another multiplatform game, I think WOFF).

    I'll be honest, I was kind of expecting an FF XII HD megaton or something, but really, they've got their hands full already. The next year-and-a-half will be packed for SE.

    And I just want to say, three cheers for Matsuda. I can't imagine it's easy to get up in front of a crowd and countless streamers and speak a non-native language. Good for him.

    Edit: Also, the dude in that helmet thing. Wat, just WAT.
