Square Enix is to show the world it's self-titled "new direction" at E3 from June 2nd to 4th. The corporation will display a handful of these new games that are taking it to a new plateau in the gaming industry.

  • Front Mission Evolved: The third person shooter developed by Double Helix Games.

  • Neir: A game where the protagonist battles in a world full of disease to find a cure for his daughter. Read more about it here from one of my SI colleagues.

-Order of War: A World War II PC war game involving massive unit control. Discussed here by myself.

Other familiar (or rather less in this "new direction") games such as Final Fantasy XIII, Final Fantasy Dissidia, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a Darklord, Final Fantasy IV: The After Years, Kingdom Hearts 358/2 days and deep breath finally Supreme Commander 2 should all also be in the 2009 E3 lineup as well.
