Tokyo Game Show 2017 Day 2 News Roundup

We’re back, and we’ve got some more news surrounding the latest Japanese game developers!

First off, some more info on the recently announced Left Alive game with the crazy all-star development team. The game will be developed and published by Square-Enix, and today a new trailer was released. To our surprise the game actually isn’t a new IP, but is part of Square-Enix’s long forgotten Front Mission franchise. You know, Square’s take on the giant mech genre? We don’t blame you if you’re unfamiliar; Front Mission Evolved was the latest release and that came out in 2010. Anyways, back to Left Alive – the new trailer shows off mostly cinematic story cutscenes, but there’s a small snippet of gameplay at the end. It looks like the game will be a third-person shooter, and hopefully we’ll be able to pilot the series’ trademark Wanzers.

Secondly, Namco Bandai teased with some more footage of Dragon Ball FighterZ. The game will feature a fully fleshed out story mode in which the Z fighters will take on a new threat. The new character’s design will be supervised by famed character designer Akira Toriyama, so you know this will be a truly authentic Dragon Ball story.

Lastly, this isn’t really news news but it’s fascinating nonetheless! Square-Enix is apparently in talks with Epic Games on bringing the full version of Final Fantasy XV to the Switch. Yes, we’re talking the original game – not the pocket edition or mobile version, the actual game. Needless to say that will be quite the task, but we’re sure anything is possible in the world of video games. Square-Enix had tested a version of game on the Switch before, but it wasn’t really up to par, as you can imagine. This is why they’re trying to figure out something with the Unreal Engine, which works wonders on the Switch. If they can hopefully figure this out, this could pave the way for future titles on the Switch.

That’s all of the major news today from TGS. We’ll be back with more!
