Square Enix Excitement is building in the run-up to E3

Publisher Square Enix has been releasing small crumbs of information about their plans for the upcoming E3 event that starts next week.

Fans were given a taste of some of the games in 2013 during Square's unveiling of the latest Final Fantasy Installment -- which should win the day with the majority of JRPG fans at this year's event as well.

Here's a look at what Square Enix plans to do starting next week as E3 ramps up according to a report from Play Magazine.

Final Fantasy XV
Revealed at last year’s E3, this latest numbered RPG sequel evolved from PS3 title Final Fantasy Versus XIII to XV proper on PS4 and will likely be one of Square’s main focuses at E3 2014. Expect more gameplay (hands-on, ideally) and hopefully a release date, but don’t get too excited – we’re probably looking at late 2015 at the earliest.

Kingdom Hearts III
Another PS4 surprise from Sony’s conference at last year’s show, this one is likely even further out than FFXV. Still, that doesn’t mean that Square will ignore the chance to remind fans that it’s still coming, even if only with a few snippets of new footage and some new details.

Tomb Raider 2
Announced last summer, but only in the sense that Square’s CEO revealed that it was in development. What better place than E3 to reveal what Crystal Dynamics is doing with the game? Definitive Edition looks great on PS4, so the hard work is already done – just as in the PSone days, it’s now simply a case of designing new locations for Lara to explore.

Deus Ex
Another one that we know is in the works, announced last year and thrust back into the spotlight recently when Square filed a trademark for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, thought to be the new game’s title. It’ll be coming to PS4 in the not-so-distant future, with all clues pointing towards a proper reveal even sooner.

Just Cause 3
The domain name justcause3.com was registered by Square a few weeks back, leading many to believe that we’ll see more open world shenanigans very soon. Avalanche is currently working on Mad Max (which looks quite similar to Just Cause) but job listings and quotes from the studio have hinted at a third proper Just Cause for some time. Let’s see it!

Hitman
IO Interactive is hard at work on a new Hitman game for PS4, with the only info released so far suggesting much larger, more open levels to empower players to create their own brand of murder in environments only possible on PS4. But will Square see this as the right time to pull back the curtain and give us our first look at the game?

Triad Wars
Born from the stinking ashes of the True Crime franchise, Sleeping Dogs had no right to be as good as it was. It sold pretty well too, leading many to believe Square would be keen to do a sequel. A working title and a single blurry Twitter image are all we have to go on right now, but we’re always up for more Sleeping Dogs…
