Gamescom 2013 Coverage

Contrary to popular belief, E3 is not the world’s largest video game show – it’s merely America’s largest show (with PAX quickly closing in…).  However, THE world’s largest interactive entertainment show – Gamescom – is right around the corner.  In fact, it’s practically here.  From August 21st through to August 25th, the biggest (and smallest!) names in the video game industry will be showing off their latest and greatest goods, and Square Enix is no exception.  Games already confirmed to be showing up during their presentations are as follow:

  • Deus Ex: The Fall
  • Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn
  • Final Fantasy XV
  • Final Fantasy X | X-2 HD Remaster
  • Kingdom Hearts III
  • Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX
  • Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII
  • Murdered: Soul Suspect
  • Thief

Keep in mind that these are just the confirmed titles.  Shows of this magnitude do not just have the nature to surprise folks, but almost an expectation!  Maybe we’ll be seeing a brand new (actual) trailer for Kingdom Hearts III?  Maybe we’ll get that long fabled 2.5 ReMIX announced at last?  Maybe they’ll just regurgitate everything they had at E3?  Who knows.  Whatever the case may be, keep your bookmarks locked right on this here page as we’ll continually update as the news and media rolls in!

UPDATE – AUGUST 24th, 2013

…*crickets chirping*

So apparently, pretty much nothing happened at Gamescom.  According to floor reports, all they did was demo up FFX’s HD remaster, KH 1.5 and nothing else.  KH3, FFXV and some other games only had trailers playing around the booth areas.  But wait!  IGN DID in fact catch some new gameplay off-screen!

…Not even two minutes long.  And in German (it IS in Cologne).  Disappointing.  But there’s always the Tokyo Game Show, right?  ….Right?

    2.5 Will be no sooner the TGS… That’s just a given :P

  2. SebastianLovelace Says:

    Yet, KH3.

  3. Disco zombie Says:

    I’m pretty sure a 2.5 remix will happen since FF15 coming out on 2014 so 2.5 will also following up kh3 at 2015 my theory

    God Bless Ya All,Jesus LovesYou xo :)

  5. Devon Barr Says:

    KH3 Is the exception to the rule, E3 is when you announce something BIG… like something that people waited YEARS for… Every KH game with the exception of 3 (And possibly 1 and MAYBE 2… ) Were announced at TGS. 1.5 was even announced at TGS on a Japanese stage. That’s THEY’RE show for a reason.

  6. SebastianLovelace Says:

    Except, once again, E3 is the THIRD biggest show in the world. If it’s big enough for KH3, then Gamescom is pretty much big enough for anything else.

  7. Devon Barr Says:

    Your completely missing my point. It’s not about if gamescom is big enough at all. It’s about the fact that the Tokyo Game show is THEY’RE show. That’s the show for BIG Japanese announcements, KH3 was big enough to be revealed at what man people DO BELIEVE to be the biggest press show. Regardless of whether it is in fact that or not, which it’s really not, but it’s not about what it is, it’s about what E3 Represents. Which brings me back to TGS, That represents the biggest things in Japan, and 2.5 would fall under that, besides if you think they’re going to announce 2.5 BEFORE 1.5 I even available in North America your crazy :P It’s being held on the 21st I believe to the 24th (Or something close to that at least so don’t quote me on that) And They’re not going announce I before TGS when TGS is just next month :P

    “besides if you think they’re going to announce 2.5 BEFORE 1.5 I even available in North America your crazy”

    It appears you dont know what happened during E3 2010. Re:Coded and KH 3D were announced at the event before Birth by Sleep released in North America.

    Square Enix could do it, but chose not to. :P

  9. Fred Says:

    Doesn’t seem like much is going on at gamescom, regarding KH1.5, KH3, FFXV …

  10. Drace Says:

    I’ve read the panel for these will start saturday.

  11. Fred Says:

    really?! could you show me where you’ve seen that plz

  12. Drace Says:

    Well yeah, but the site is in German.

  13. Devon Barr Says:

    The next entry in the series is a little bit different then an HD update though wouldn’t you agree? Also I’m pretty sure Re:Coded was announced sooner and i’m almost POSITIVE that I remember watching the trailer for 3D in an august… Perhaps that’s just the actual games release window fogging over my somewhat lackluster memory of the issue though, A few more days to go before we truly know for sure however, I’ll be more then happy enough to eat my words if I’m wrong :)

    Hate to be a buzzkill, but according to your article from July
    http://www.kh2.co.uk/kingdom-hearts-3/news/square-enix-events-schedule.php
    Gamescon isn’t even a “large scale” event for KH.
    Who is your source? 1.5 is more realistic but it’s highly unlikely that Kingdom Hearts III will make an appearance over the weekend. We will probably see more at TGS

  15. Tintin Says:

    still waiting for the continual update :’(

  16. skeletonbrah Says:

    Surely there will be updates. Skeleton.jpg

  17. Youunderstandsolittle Says:

    “The next entry in the series is a little bit different then an HD update though wouldn’t you agree?”

    So its okay to release a trailer of the next game in the series(2 at that), basically spoiling, when NA hasnt gotten the recent one yet(BBS), but not a HD release, which people have played already?

    “Also I’m pretty sure Re:Coded was announced sooner”

    Sooner? If sooner, you mean by earlier….then that just helps my point. It was hinted on February 20, 2010(1 month after BBS came out in Japan) by Jiminy’s voice actor. He then later confirmed it on June 5, 2010. Like I said, E3 2010.

    “and i’m almost POSITIVE that I remember watching the trailer for 3D in an august…”

    KH 3D was announced at E3 2010(E3 is always in June). There was a private trailer/demo for select people. A simple google search can correct your terrible memory.

    “A few more days to go before we truly know for sure however, I’ll be more then happy enough to eat my words if I’m wrong :)

    Know what for sure? Sorry, but you’ve already eaten your words without realizing it.

  18. Rofair Says:

    The awkward moment when there is absolutely no Gamescom coverage on this page. XD

  19. Devon Barr Says:

    Whoa there buddy… No need to pick apart EVERY little thing I say :P And yes, I meant earlier instead of sooner, Must’ve missed that. My bad. Also yes I was wrong about when the trailer for 3D was released, but I ALSO SAID “Perhaps that’s just the actual games release window fogging over my somewhat lackluster memory of the issue though,” which was me basically admitting what you seem to have decided was some clever game of you outing me as a moron, Despite the fact that I admitted I could very well be wrong. And I know that E3 is always in June thank you very much :P And “a few more days to go” referred to until the end of Gamescom which was going back to what this entire discussion (Which you seem to have misinterpreted as an argument) was about in the first place, Whether or not 2.5 will be announced at Gamescom or TGS. Why does everything always have to turn into an argument where people become hostile over simple little details that I very much ADMITTED that I was most likely wrong about and that I by no means implied that I was right and everyone else is wrong… I didn’t say “And your all fucking stupid if you think I’m wrong!” But you seem to have interpreted a discussion as an argument. One which I honestly don’t care enough to participate in anymore after this statement. So have a nice day. :) And I’m sorry for apparently offending you previously.

  20. Youunderstandsolittle Says:

    Dont assume. You stated:

    “”besides if you think they’re going to announce 2.5 BEFORE 1.5 I even available in North America your crazy”

    Then I merely corrected you. You replied back with a comment that needed “further correcting”(I read everything you said clearly, but you didnt have your info straight due to terrible memory, hence the correcting). This was never an argument to begin with(to me), but of course you wouldnt see it that way. So we can see where your mind is. Also, I dont get offended over internet comments.

    Have a nice day. :)

  21. Drace Says:

    You know, there are german KH-fans, too. And they got much more disappointing experiences after last Kingdom Hearts-games weren’t even fully translated into german. Just saying. -.-

  22. Drace Says:

    3rd world Kingdom Hearts fan problems. -.-

  23. Toddstone230 Says:

    soo…..if i insult you rite now……you wont make a retort on me with over-used phrases?>.>

  24. Youunderstandsolittle Says:

    You can try to insult me(irrelevant reply), but only if its related to the conversation, which is the quote in my first response to Devon.

  25. The REAL Drace Says:

    Look who’s a racist. And a coward considering how he/she’s hiding behind my nickname.

  26. The REAL Drace Says:

    Japan is 1st world because they made the games and get everything.

    U.S. is 2nd world because they almost get everything compared to Japan.

    3rd world is….yeah, that was the meaning behind my original comment about the German fans when they get disappointing experiences because it is fact.

    Sorry guys, I was playing around. It was I, The Real Draco, that made that comment. There was no coward hiding behind my nickname.

  27. SebastianLovelace Says:

    How bout you just shut the fuck up? That a swell a idea? Cause I think it’s a swell idea.

  28. TiaB. Says:

    Dude, just stop it. You can’t deceive anyone and identity theft is not funny. That is really lame. Even for a troll.
    P.S: I flagged you. You know that your IP-Address stays the same, do you?

  29. Toddstone230 Says:

    I like the cut of your gib :) .btw are you a fan of “Ansem SoD”?

  30. Youunderstandsolittle Says:

    No. I just find his quotes perfect for situations like this. :)
