Square Enix

Square Enix is lined up with a whole lot of “Yes, please!” for E3 2016. Finally, after a few years of establishing themselves with Western IPs, the company is back in full swing on the JRPG front, pushing the genre to the limits like they did back with on the PlayStation 2.

This year’s line-up with the company looks like it could be something really special. Between Final Fantasy XV, I Am Setsuna, World of Final Fantasy, and Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness, I just don’t know where to begin!

Wait, yes I do. With Final Fantasy XV of course, but after that, it becomes a little more complicated. Check out the schedule below.
