E3 2015 | Square Enix Press Conference Wrap

square-enix-logo-2

Square Enix arrived at E3 with most of their plans already revealed. Or that’s at least how it seemed. In the end, one or two surprises did get revealed, but nothing that hadn’t made it into one of the other console press conferences.

Please note, this article will be updated continually with any relevant information as it becomes available.

Just Cause 3

The game will hit PS4, Xbox One and PC on 1 December and features “unparalleled freedom” of the game’s wing suit, an updated grapple hook, and 400 square miles to explore.

Nier

Platinum Games announced a new Nier game, but other than a trailer and a confirmed release on PS4, the only other information is that more details are coming “this fall”.

Rise of the Tomb Raider

The game already made an appearance at the Microsoft press conference, but that doesn’t mean a video is still not in order.

Mobile Games

Two mobile titles were announced at the press conference. One is turn-based game Lara Croft GO, while the other is Final Fantasy 7 for mobile devices, which will be available this winter.

Final Fantasy 7

The Final Fantasy 7 goodies didn’t stop there however. At the Sony press conference a remake for PS4 had already been revealed. The trailer – in case you missed it before – was shown again, but it was also announced that the PC port of Final Fantasy 7 for PS4 had been delayed into winter 2015.

Kingdom Hearts

Kingdom Hearts will make its Western debut for mobiles by way of Kingdom Hearts: Unchained Chi (its Japanese name).

Kingdom Hearts 3 got a new trailer, but still no release date.

Final Fantasy Worlds

Hitman

Hitman was a little bit of a surprise announcement at Sony’s press conference, but a few more details emerged about the game during Square Enix’s conference.

The reboot of Hitman will be released digitally on 8 December and is a “creative stealth action-sandbox game online.” Players will be able to perform hits across the world, with each hit having a time limit. The choice of approach is up to the player, with both stealth and force being an option.  Community created contracts will mean the game will “never stop challenging players”.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

The game arrives early 2016 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.

Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness

Project Setsuna

A new IP and a new JRPG from a new studio called Tokyo RPG Factory. More details will be announced (at a later date) and the game will be released in 2016.

And that was pretty much that. Things were ended off with a montage featuring clips from Final Fantasy XV and Triad Wars, but that was Square Enix at E3 2015.
