Square Enix E3 Showcase: Joyous Cries of RPG Gamers

Mere days before the big week of E3, Square Enix has decided to release what they will be showcasing. Some games will have playable demos and some will not. This is quite an impressive list and should satiate the hunger of gamers who love role playing games.

There’s Something for Every Gamer at the Square Enix Booth This Year!
Los Angeles (July 9, 2008)
Square Enix, Inc., the publisher of Square Enix™ interactive entertainment products in North America, announced their extensive lineup for the E3 Media & Business Summit today, confirming an impressive array of games ranging from remastered classics to brand-new IPs. In addition to the much anticipated next-gen titles INFINITE UNDISCOVERY™, THE LAST REMNANT™ and STAR OCEAN®: THE LAST HOPE™, Square Enix introduces STAR OCEAN: First Departure™ and STAR OCEAN: Second Evolution™ for the PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system, TAITO Corporation’s EXIT™ DS and The Legend of Kage™ 2 for Nintendo DS™, and SONG SUMMONER™: The Unsung Heroes, the first full-scale Role-Playing Game created for the iPod®.

“With simultaneous global releases for several platforms on their way, gamers around the world will be able to experience the full grandeur of our games as never before,” said John Yamamoto, president and chief executive officer of Square Enix, Inc. and Square Enix, Ltd. “Additionally, Square Enix has offerings at this year’s E3 for every gamer, from fan favorites newly available on portable platforms to casual games accessible to a wide range of users.”

With five playable titles on the show floor, Square Enix offers a wealth of deep and engaging experiences for a variety of platforms.

That’s is quite an announcement by Square Enix! Here’s a quick run down of all the games that are going to be there.

Playable Demos

  • Chrono Trigger (Nintendo DS)
  • Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen (Nintendo DS)
  • Final Fantasy IV (Nintendo DS)
  • Infinite Undiscovery (Xbox 360)
  • Song Summoner: The Unsung Heros (Apple Ipod)

Really looking forward to what Square Enix is offering this year for gamers. Curiously, one of their biggest titles is not listed, that being Final Fantasy XIII. However, that could because it is going to be a surprise at E3 or possibly shown at another event later this year or early next year. Guess it’s time for me to cancel all my future plans for this release schedule.
