    But of course, that’s not all of it.

    • rainelee

      Surprise me, Square.

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      It better not be it is full of iOS garbage. As well as a port of a Eidos game. And other Eidos garbage.

  • Zackasaur

    Wow, I want all of these, except Minj Ninjas and the Wii U poet of Human Revolution (great game, though!).

  • bloodiOS

    Better have more up your sleeves, Square.

  • Nhiroz

    Hope they give us a release date for FFX :-)

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      I will take a stab in the dark here… September 18th. Why? I dunno.

      • Nhiroz

        If your right I will buy you a copy!

        • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

          Heh. September might be accurate but the day I very much doubt. xD

          • Nhiroz

            Still if it is, I bow to your insight friend :-)

            • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

              lol I would consider myself special.

  • kenshee

    Unless there’s more than the ps4 final fantasy AND versus news on top of this list, I won’t be happy.

    I want at least one more surprise.

    Birth by sleep 2 maybe, or bravely default 2 (which was already kind of announced). Also, drakengard 3 isn’t on here? They’re keeping that for TGS or do they think so little of it they didn’t even bring that to E3? (but they DID bring an IOS game >.<)
    Or Type-zero in english on … well whatever platform really. psp, 3ds, vita, ps3 … all are good, we just need English.

    I just feel this is a very small list tbh.
    Nothing from the dragon quest series at all?

    I'm really hoping this list is just a small part of what they're actually bringing, or has absolutely nothing to do with announcements and trailers and these are just the playable games?

    • Warboss Aohd

      why would dere be a Birth By Sleep 2 now? dey already said da next kingdom hearts (outside the remasters of the older games) would be KH3.

      • kenshee

        Oh? Then I must’ve missed or forgot that update.
        They were planning a BBS 2 at one point though, right? Saying it would be the last game before kh3? (or is my memory failing me completely? T_T)

        • Warboss Aohd

          da credits in Dream Drop Distance said da next game is KH3.

          also i think dey said it woz outside dat.

  • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

    Eh… this leaves a sour taste in my mouth.

  • Budgiecat


  • Sae-Won Yoon

    interestingly enough, there was this photo a friend of mine got ahold of; take a look at the middle there…

    (Note: As legit as it looks, TAKE IT WITH A GRAIN OF SALT)

    • piichan

      They might end up revealing VS as XV at this point. It’s been kept in the dark for too long, and since they refuse to let it die, might as well get it out in the open. Not that anybody’s going to be surprised, but atleast that’ll make people happy.

    • kenshee

      Funnily enough, this alone will convince me I need a ps4 sooner rather than later :p

      Cool looking pic, it’s very possible this is exactly what will happen this E3. (but not confirmed at all, I know)
      Both versus and kingdom hearts have been in the dark for too long, so this makes sense.

      Sadly, what tentative release date would come with kh3, if anything besides “soon”? :/

    • Warboss Aohd

      if dat iz KH3, and FFV iz versus, all i have to say iz…………Helloooooo PS4, how pretty ya will look in me room.

    • Sakurairo

      Saw this floating around earlier, but someone pointed out that if you look at the ARR: FFXIV logo, you’ll see the magnifying glass mouse cursor on it, implicating it as an edited/fake image.

  • Nice Boat

    Noctis? Who is that?

    • artemisthemp

      May be announce on Sony Stream

  • artemisthemp

    Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts and Murdered: Soul Suspect I really looking forward to hearing more from.

  • Elvick

    It makes me sad that there are more mobile games than Vita games.

    Looking forward to knowing if FFX/X-2 will be physical on Vita or not… I pray to Yevon they will be.

  • Ace

    Who wants to bet that the next gen Final Fantasy isn’t Versus XIII?

  • rockman29

    Oh look it’s female Cloud who is nothing like Cloud and never was.

    • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

      Never compared.

  • Farid Belkacemi

    No Bravely Default ? :(

    • GetOffMy_Lawn

      Nintendo’s publishing it, not Squeenix.

      • Farid Belkacemi

        Oups, I forgot about that. Still, they should mention it at least :D

  • Karl Josef

    Ok, No Versus XIII or FF XV(tech demo) and No Kingdom Hearts 3

  • PrinceHeir

    Final Fantasy X | X-2 HD Remaster, Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII!!

    Deus Ex HR Wii U and Thief is nice as well!

  • MasterSensei

    What god do I have to make a sacrifices to in order for me to get Versus XIII because I really need to know…

  • why would you do this

    M-Maybe Versus will be a s-surprise ;_;
