Day two will follow with a live stream dedicated to Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy followed by a Final Fantasy Brave Exvius Livestream and most importantly, another look at Team Ninja’s Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin.

The highlight of Square Enix’s three-day events will undoubtedly be Forspoken, releasing as a console exclusive to PS5 and PC in 2022. The game has received multiple trailers at PlayStation’s showcases over the past year (first appearing as Project Athia), showing off a stunning open world with exploration and combat heavily based on magical abilities. In addition to Forspoken, Final Fantasy fans will be treated to many upcoming projects in development in the series.
Unfortunately, Final Fantasy XVI – which is notably absent from the listings – will not make an appearance. The game’s producer Yoshi-P revealed last month that they definitely wanted to share news on the anticipated RPG at TGS, but wasn’t sure if they’d be able to make the deadline. We’ll just have to wait a little while longer for news on the next major Final Fantasy instalment.
