OK, so the last word is mine, but still. This even just went on in Japan and they revealed a whole heap ton of new Square Enix related things, all Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts related. I haven’t felt the need to post and game news for a while, let’s just say this has inspired me.

First the little things, Agito was shown and apparently it’s name has been changed to “Final Fantasy Type-0” a trailer was shown and it doesn’t show any really new or exciting things.

Dissidia [duodecim] Final Fantasy got some love as well, Yuna was shown off in a new trailer, and it was mentioned that the character Prishe from Final Fantasy XI would be making an appearance as a Cosmos warrior. A few attendees also mentioned that there seemed to be hints of Gilgamesh in the new trailer but they couldn’t be sure, an he did not specifically appear, so who knows about that.

On to the bigger news, Kingdom Hearts 3D has officially been given its final subtitle, and prepare yourself. Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance. I have a feeling the subtitle takes strong inspiration or is an allusion to the gameplay styles you will see in the game. An oh yeah, THE TRAILER IS OUT.

The most speculated news turned out to be true after all with Final Fantasy XIII-2 Officially being announced and a short trailer was shown alongside it, as well as the new logo.

The game will supposedly be released THIS YEAR and is for both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and it’s being developed for both consoles simultaneously.

And the moment most people have been waiting for finally came. Final Fantasy Versus XIII keeps it’s name the way it is, is still absolutely exclusive to PlayStation 3 and a brand new trailer was show. Not only is it partly voiced, but it’s 6 minutes long and a ton of new scenes are shown as well as gameplay footage.

So this conference ended up being pretty damn informational, the trailers have all been leaked however, official released are soon to follow which is rare for Square Enix. Another rarity is that FFXIII-2 Will be releasing in 2011? Announcing a game the same year it will be released? Almost unheard of for Square. Maybe this is a sign of good things to come. I can only hope that Kingdom Hearts 3D Dream Drop Distance comes out just as quickly.
