Square Enix Half-Skipping Tokyo Game Show?!
Posted on Wednesday, September 19 @ 18:04:29 Eastern by Heath_Hindman
Square Enix is indeed attending the Tokyo Game Show, but upon looking at the map, one thing stood out to me and my homies: the size of their booth... or lack thereof.
Normally, Square Enix is walking around TGS like it owns the place—and the layman would not be foolish to think otherwise. But this year, with the company publicly announcing that Final Fantasy Versus XIII will be a no-show, that Final Fantasy XIV is on the operating table, and Final Fantasy XIII-3 is also not too likely to appear, the company appears to be preparing for far less than the heart-stopping presentations attendees have become used to. It should be noted that FFXIV will be shown, but how big of a deal it will be is anyone's guess, given the rehabilitating state of the game right now.
The newest Hitman will be shown as well as Call of Duty Black Ops 2 (which Square Enix publishes in Japan), but given the small size of that booth, I'm not sure how much of a splash SE is looking to make with either of them. Dragon Quest X will be shown for Wii U, but there's already a version available on the market in Japan.
Most everything else is arcade and phone games.
