  • stevenm281

    That’s a fucking huge lineup, wow!

  • Mina-P

    So nice to see , esp. after the dark days of 2010 or 2011 or 2012 tgs….. smart phone games and lightning games…. oi -_-;;

  • Jesus Christ

    i want my Kingdom Hearts III.

  • oNionKnight08

    hmmm… XII TZA got me curious. I think there’s more to this…

  • Luke Watts

    No ff7. No KH3. No interest.

  • Noctis

    Whats up with Kingdom hearts? How long are they developing this game lol….another 10 years?

    Nomura is working on 7…..how can he work on both?

  • Randy Marsh

    You would want December then, that’s the planned month for the new KHIII stuff. Think about it this way, the new trailer for KHIII could be like an early birthday/Christmas present gift for you.

  • Some Random Guy

    The same way he worked on Vs 13 and KH3 … Oh wait
    We all know how that turned out lol

  • Luna

    Dissidia Opera Omnia is in their line-up but not Dissidia Arcade?? What?

  • Noctis

    muhahaha…..I like kingdom hearts…..but after 15 I don`t expect any other good game to come out in the near future.

    Better forget about their damn games….shit I`m to addicted to this company


    no FF7 = Not interested

  • stevenm281

    People expecting FF7 remake or KH3, I’m sorry to say this, but there was no chance to hear about those, Square Enix mentioned that FF7R news will come this winter, once FF15 is released, while KH3 will wait until 2.8 is out.

  • They never release a game only a month after announcement of the date. This leads me to believe KH2.8 won’t release this year. XV is taking over late fall and winter since its in November. So 2.8 will likely be pushed back to Feb 2017 instead of it being out in December as was rumored.

  • •december

    Is it bad that out of all of these games
    I only care about Final Fantasy XV?


    kh2.8 is huge, ff12HD is a big deal imo, and world of final fantasy is gonna be great too

  • stevenm281

    Well I only care about FF15 too, altho I am still interested in FF12 remaster, but its a remaster so I’m not going crazy with it.

  • D.3ND

    FFVIIR isn’t in this year TGS which means they’re still working on it and they won’t spill the beans until dec-jan, so it’s safe to say somewhere between Spike awards and Famitsu we should expect a trailer or screenshots of the game and revamped characters.

  • Vallen

    Come back in 2020. It’ll be a while

  • Vallen


    The only ones I care for. I’m surprised at how much mobile stuff they have

  • D.3ND

    I can understand how you feel, I only care for FFXV, FFXII, Nier, FFXIV, KH2.8, WoFF and Deus Ex screw the rest……. 😀

  • D.3ND

    Ha ha, well played on the “catchphrase”

  • stevenm281

    I don’ think you understand how he feels, he cares exclusively for 1 game, you care for 7 games… its a big difference lol.

  • Justice V

    Nomura did say “next time we’ll talk about it will be in the winter.”

  • Justice V

    Probably not reaaaally worth it since the game is arcade exclusive and has been out almost a year. Other than maybe talking about the new characters and the Gods, which they just did last week at their big event, there’s not much to say about it. And it’s not like people will go buy the arcade cabinets. So talking about a mobile game where they’ll make a crap ton of money (theoretically) is the smarter business choice.

  • Justice V

    He’s got another co-director on 2.8 and 3 I believe. Not sure if he’s sole director on VII or not either. But most likely putting most effort into KH3 while VII does it’s thing.

  • Justice V

    So much stuff. Some (or a lot of it) I don’t even care about, but seeing this much content is definitely nice.

  • Luke Watts

    It’s the only one I care about as well. But it’s a mix of excitement and concern..

  • Bethanyadavis3

    Google is paying 97$ per hour! Work for few hours and have longer with friends & family! !ic791t:

  • no kh3 info / trailer at least ?

  • stevenm281

    no, its been confirmed that nothing will be shared until 2.8 releases.

  • O ok that is too bad but thanks for the info
