Square Enix lays out TGS offerings

Publisher will have playable Dragon Quest Monsters and Final Fantasy videos galore on tap at this month's Tokyo Game Show.

While the Tokyo Game Show is all but guaranteed to feature some surprises later this month, a number of companies are showing their cards early, releasing lists of which games they'll have on the show floor.

Square Enix has followed suit with a breakdown of its TGS lineup on its official Web site. Of the six playable console demos announced, half are for the Nintendo DS: Chocobo no Mahou Ehon, Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker, and Final Fantasy III. The remaining titles are Final Fantasy XI running on the PlayStation 2 and Xbox 360, Project Sylpheed for the Xbox 360, and Seiken Densetsu IV for the PS2.

The main event videowise appears to be Fabula Nova Crystallis: Final Fantasy XIII and Versus XIII for the PlayStation 3. Visitors will also be able to see footage from Final Fantasy V and Final Fantasy VI, both for the GameBoy Advance, and Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core for the PSP.

TGS 2006 is dated for September 22 to 24, 2006. Check back with GameSpot for more news leading up to the show, as well as live coverage of the event itself.

I agree that Rpgs these days arent as good, as the ones in the late nineties, the merging of square and Enix bring lame musashi and Front Mission, the whole Shadow Hearts saga is lame, i played all 3, Xenosaga had great storyline, but the gameplay was boring. Now that Square Enix got things right, since the release of DQ8, the Rpg genre is getting stronger again, Oblivion really pushes D&D american Rpgs, and with Neverwinter Nights 2, Valkyrie Profile 2, And FF XII, im gonna be playing sweet rpgs for a long time.

I don't care if its FF or not, I just want more rpg's. I'm talking rpg's that as good if not better than the FF series. Not some stupid young boy goes out and saves the world, 3rd rate Dungeon Master crud rpg that always seems to come out. I'm talking stories as good if not better than what R.A. Salvatore, Dan Abnett, Final Fantasy, and Xenosaga (among numerous others I could think of) could put together. I'm looking for gameplay that matches if not exceeds Final Fantasy. Xenosaga was a good start, but the game play sucked (still not sure about Xenosaga III yet). The story was the only thing that kept my attention. Although, I must say that its too bad that FF3 isn't coming to the PS2.

friky00 I don't care about any another next-gen game, FF XIII will decide which console im getting. And i dont see it coming for the Wii. And for the time neither for the xbox. Square last attempts to make a good game with MS were failures

orionnamra.... come on now, have u seen lost oddyssey in terms of the demo footage,, it is available in other websites.. Now im not sure if it was my eyes but the difference between 13 and lost oddyssey was fair at best.. Now i dont know you, yur probably a final fantasy fan and sony fan, and I will wait to see if ps3 can deliver, but dont say cheapshots like that which in any case arent true..

Final Fantasy XIII can't be made on Xbox360... Final Fantasy XIII can only look like this on Playstation 3 and that is a fact.

I personally can't wait till these games are out, I'm a BIG square-enix FAN so yeh, though I hate to admit I don't think these games will be out till like next year or maybe even end of next year, hope not though *prays* I can't wait any longer!!!

Crisis Core footage? Could it really be true?

JimmeyBurrows

am i the only one worried about the fact that final fantasy games are being designed by a different person, i still love the games and i will get them when they come out but without the input from the origional creater of the game will they still be as good??? oh and bytherway i don't think that crisis core would run on the ds, first of all you lose all the great fmv's, because they wouldn't be able to fit them on a cartridge even with severe compression... and on top of that, from the screens that have been shown of the game, there will be far too many poly's than the gpu of the ds could handle.

Sweeeeeet man, but can't Final Fantasy VII be remade for the Nintendo Wii? And I would honestly prefer to play FFVII crisis core on the DS than FFIII.

sigh... the saddest part of being an american gamer..... we don't get any cool shows that we can go to.......E3 was for the people who make the games not nesscerly does who make the industry......and even if your lucky enough to get into the bussiness E3 is now a joke anyway.......first we lose the japaness in the car race(toyota and honda dominate the market)and now we lose the one thing that made us cool.....DAMN who has a free ticket to tokyo they don't need. at least we have the NFL!!!

No way...! If they are promoting FFXIII this much already then it will be out by season 2007 or 2Q 2008 at the latest, SquareEnix has such a awesome team and they probably have had all the preliminary work for some time now. But I dunno, you could be right because I'm sure they have plenty of other releases to tide us over for a while until it's done.

I remember the old arguments over who was better Square or enix............personally I think most of their games are great because of that competition but that is just me...either way I'm still a huge fan.

"Square-Enix is so great...I remember the days when it was just Square" Wow, you remember 4 whole years ago? Give yourself a medal!

Squeenix FTW! I'm eager to know more about the Fabula Nova Crystallis games - what the gameplay will be like, specifically. Having played the FFXII demo, I'm not too convinced by the gambit system. Let's see what they come up with in FFXIII. And yes, , we Europeans should be getting FFXII in Feb. 2007. The PS1's FFIX was the first game I played on the PS2, I guess the PS2's FFXII will be the first game I play on the PS3!

a new chocobo game!! woooo whoooooooo!! i dont like the look of 13, nor do i like the idea that the dipstick that directed X2 is helming 13. x2 would have been better with out all the girlie stuff and just like the first FF movie, it just shouldnt have carried the name Final Fantasy. FF versus 13 on the other hand. . .drool. . . Tetsuya Nomura is a creative genius.
