Deus Ex GO gives cyberpunk a diorama-esque board game flair

Deus Ex GO gives cyberpunk a diorama-esque board game flair

Square Enix definitely has a new-found obsession for turning its franchises into "turn-based puzzle games", a.k.a. board games. Perhaps emboldened by the success of Hitman GO and Lara Croft GO, the game publisher is giving the same treatment to another major title: Deus Ex. Capitalizing on the upcoming launch of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Deus Ex GO will cater to mobile gamers who might not have that much time or resources for a full on Deus Ex game but still want to be immersed in the fictional cyberpunk universe of the game.

Upcoming Final Fantasy Brave Exvius is designed for mobile only

Upcoming Final Fantasy Brave Exvius is designed for mobile only

Perhaps with the exception of Record Keeper, almost all of Square Enix's Final Fantasy titles for mobile are ports of existing titles. Record Keeper, however, is more of a reunion party for the franchise's popular characters. The mobile gaming world is definitely ready for an original Final Fantasy title of its own, which is exactly what Final Fantasy Brave Exvius is offering. Unsurprisingly a hit in Japan, Square Enix is finally bringing the game to the West this summer, with pre-registrations now open for getting early bird rewards.

Hitman GO’s newest targets: Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR

Hitman GO is an unusual game.

Now it is scouting new ground and will be taking down targets right in front of your eyes. Yes, Hitman GO has finally landed on VR, making it the publisher's first commercial VR game. Now available for the Oculus Rift and the Samsung Gear VR, practically both using Oculus' VR platform, Hitman GO: VR Edition puts a new spin on an already unique gameplay.

Final Fantasy X, X-2 land on Steam in Remastered HD glory

A couple of years ago, it was near inconceivable that Square Enix would bring its PlayStation exclusive Final Fantasy titles to the PC. Save for Final Fantasy VII and VII, which were practically cult classics. Today, all but one of those single-player JRPGs are available on the Windows platform via Steam. Square Enix has finally launched both Final Fantasy X and its direct sequel X-2 on Steam as a Remastered version. That leaves the relatively less popular Final Fantasy XII out of the Steam party.

Tomb Raider II gets stunning Unreal Engine treatment

Tomb Raider II gets stunning Unreal Engine treatment

The original Tomb Raider games were among the first great shooter/adventure games for consoles. Sure, there were others before, but Tomb Raider created a legacy that is still loved, and is still getting built upon to this day. Unfortunately, like most games released in the 90's, the graphics really haven't held up. But someone is trying to fix that.

Kingdom Hearts mobile game coming to the US on 7th April

Last year at E3, Square Enix both surprised and perhaps briefly irked its fans. A good number were expecting the announcement of Kingdom Hearts 3, which indeed happened later. However, Square Enix prefaced it with the revelation of a Kingdom Hearts mobile game, which misled some into believing that the company has betrayed them for a quick mobile buck. Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ, as it was finally revealed, was happily a completely different game for iOS and Android. Half a year after that title launched in Japan, Square Enix will be bringing it to North America this week.

Final Fantasy XV gets an anime spinoff, movie, new trailer

Final Fantasy XV is a big, nay a huge, thing for Square Enix. It is the biggest non-MMORPG installment of the game since "Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII" in 2013 (which, to be precise, is simply a sequel to the 2009 Final Fantasy XIII). It will also be a major departure from previous titles in terms of gameplay and combat. You know that it's really a big deal for the company when, in addition to announcing the launch date and a new trailer with a poignant cover, Square Enix is revealing a whole "universe" around it, including a prequel anime series, a full-length CG film, and even a mobile game spinoff.
