Just Cause 3:

We’ll start off Square Enix’s conference with an explosive montage of footage from their upcoming open world game Just Cause 3. Longer and stronger support post-launch is a point of emphasis. Talks about the upgrading of the grappling hook and parachute while adding the wing suit. The trailer is explosive and informative. Can’t wait for this game.

The game will launch on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC on December 1, 2015.

Nier:

Not much is shown from the newest Nier game because it’s still very early in production, but we did get a some beautiful concept art as well as a very, very brief CGI teaser.

Rise of the Tomb Raider:

A small trailer shows off some new footage and then goes into a behind the scenes look at making of Rise of the Tomb Raider. Not much else is announced.

Lara Croft Go:

Following up on the success of Hitman Go, Square Enix Montreal showing off a new game called Lara Croft Go. Turn based. A step-by-step adventure coming soon to mobile and tablet gamers.

Final Fantasy VII – Remake:

CGI trailer, making it for the PS4. PC version will be hitting PS4 this winter (delayed from fall), Remake will be next year. iOS

Kingdom Hearts: Unchained Key:

Teased for iPhone and Android. Ties in with Kingdom Hearts III. 

Kingdom Hearts III:

We’re finally getting another look at Kingdom Hearts III and it’s absolutely breathtaking. No word on how far along in production the game. Will come to Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

World of Final Fantasy: 

As we saw during Sony’s conference last night, World of Final Fantasy is a thing. Play it first on PlayStation 4 and Vita in 2016.

Hitman:

Also like we saw during Sony’s conference last night, we’re given a small bit more information about Hitman. Sandbox game that will be constantly adding new missions. Sounds very promising. PlayStation players will get the beta first.

Star Ocean:

Interesting game. Previously announced in Japan, will be coming to North America on the PlayStation 4. They make mention that the trailer is running at thirty frames-per-second, but they aim for 60fps upon completion.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided:

Adam Jensen is back. Augmented people are outcasts now. Jensen is playing a double agent. Choices and consequences will play a big role in Mankind Divided and will affect the outcome of the story. Endings will change depending on your actions. The CGI trailer is stunning and paints a grim picture of the world. They don’t give a firm release date, but it’ll be released in early 2016.

Project Setsuna:

Tokyo RPG Factory is announced as a brand new studio heading up the game. Only concept art for the new console JRPG.
