Square-Enix at TGS (Updated)

Tokyo Game Show has officially started, and it has started with a bang. It’s only Day 1, and thus only in the Business part of the show… That hasn’t stopped announcements from hitting the internet already! The announcements so far:

  • The 3rd Birthday has been dated for Japan, 12/22 at the price of 6090 Yen.  A trailer was shown during the Sony Press conference, though only a few pictures of it exist so far.

  • Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep Final Mix has also been (kind of) dated: January 2011. The game will be like all previous Final Mixes, featuring English Audio, and of course adding in a new super boss.

  • Dissidia Duodecim Final Fantasy (Or Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy) was also recently announced for the PSP. So far three new characters have been announced: Kain, Lightning, and Tifa (Haven’t seen any pictures of Tifa yet though, sure they’ll surface soon however). There will be additions to gameplay along with the added characters. Look for Dissidia 012 to hit stores in Japan next spring.

  • Final Fantasy XIV PS3 was shown running in 3D, though I will for now label this as a Tech Demo til there is more proof that it will indeed support 3D. Look for FFXIV PS3 in March 2011, or FFXIV PC later this month!

  • At long last, Final Fantasy Versus and Agito XIII have news. Although, very little. Although there are no pictures of them yet, it is nice to finally hear something on these two games. For Agito, gameplay was shown of Chocobo’s in the field screen, and some combat gameplay. Versus showed of Noctis fighting a Behemoth, along with some ruins.
  • On the same note as Versus and Agito XIII, a Fabula Nova Crystallis Conference (“Fabula Conference”) has been scheduled for January 11, 2011.  Hopefully we’ll get some concrete on these two long overdue games… next year!
  • Square-Enix is also taking this opportunity to show off their latest merchandise, including the next set of Dissidia Final Fantasy Trading Arts, and the Final Fantasy XIII Collections Play Arts Kai Vol. 3.

Expect this to be updated at any time if there is a new announcement! And be sure to follow us on Twitter for the latest info, or even to inform us of more TGS news!

Update: Square-Enix copyrighted the trailers. They’ll resurface though, sooner or later.
