SQUARE ENIX will be in attendance at PAX East this weekend, with a few FINAL FANTASY titles among their line-up.
Playable demos of FINAL FANTASY TYPE-0 HD, FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn and, Life is Strange, will be available at the booth. The FINAL FANTASY XIV area will also feature the Shiva Battle Challenge, where attendees can take on a modified version of the Shiva Primal Battle. Attendees who beat Shiva will be rewarded with an “I Beat Shiva” T-Shirt.
SQUARE ENIX will also be holding a number of panels at the show. FINAL FANTASY fans will certainly not want to miss the FINAL FANTASY XIV: Heavensward and FINAL FANTASY XV panels. Full details of all panels are as follows:
Talking Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward with Naoki Yoshida
Join FINAL FANTASY XIV producer / director Naoki Yoshida as he takes the stage to discuss details on the acclaimed MMORPG’s first expansion – Heavensward. Note: Yoshida has a habit of announcing things he shouldn’t, so you won’t want to miss this! (…and we’ll keep the PR team distracted so they won’t interfere.)
Behind the Game Designs of FINAL FANTASY XV
Join two of FINAL FANTASY XV’s lead game designers, Wan Hazmer and Prasert Prasertvithyakarn, as they share their experiences working on one of the most anticipated games of all time. Hazmer and Prasertvithyakarn are attending PAX EAST from SQUARE ENIX’s Tokyo Studios where they work in tandem to bring FINAL FANTASY XV to life. Fans will also be in for a treat with additional information revealed on the upcoming title, FINAL FANTASY TYPE-0 HD!
