Square Enix Reveals Comic-Con 2012 Lineup

Square Enix will be showcasing a few games, including two Nintendo 3DS titles, during San Diego’s Comic-Con this week. Comic-Con attendees will be able to preview Heroes of Ruin, Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, Sleeping Dogs, Hitman: Absolution and Tomb Raider.

  • Heroes of Ruin – Available on July 17, HEROES OF RUIN challenges players to carve their own adventure as a Gunslinger, Alchitect, Vindicator or Savage. Pushing social and online interaction to the forefront of gameplay through innovative use of the Nintendo 3DS™ system, players can trade rare and powerful items through an in-game shop which has an inventory updated through creative use of StreetPass™.
  • Kingdom Hearts 3D [Dream Drop Distance] – Celebrating the franchise’s 10th anniversary, KINGDOM HEARTS 3D [Dream Drop Distance] features a spectacular story that promises to be a fun backdrop to the colorful cast of Disney characters making their 3D debut on a handheld title. In addition to brand new worlds, KINGDOM HEARTS 3D [Dream Drop Distance] will also feature never before seen gameplay elements and will be available on July 31.
  • Sleeping Dogs – Sleeping Dogs catapults players into the role of undercover cop Wei Shen, tasked with taking down one of the world’s most fearsome criminal organizations from the inside – the Hong Kong Triads. As players explore the bustling and crowded Hong Kong island, through its neon-lit side streets and sprawling street markets, an incredible story unfolds of loyalty and betrayal, where Wei begins to question his own motives as he is sucked in deeper than he could ever imagine.
  • Hitman: Absolution – HITMAN: ABSOLUTION follows Agent 47, a cold-blooded assassin, who takes on his most dangerous contract to date. Betrayed by those he once trusted — and now hunted by the police — he suddenly finds himself at the center of a dark conspiracy and must embark on a personal journey through a corrupt and twisted world.
  • Tomb Raider – Armed with only the raw instincts and physical ability to push beyond the limits of human endurance, TOMB RAIDER delivers an intense and gritty story into the origins of Lara Croft and her ascent from a frightened young woman to a hardened survivor.

  1. thanks for the bloody obvious Alba…This was in a previous article showing all the games shown at this event. Filler article ftw… smh

        1. I got heros of ruin. Very dissapointing despite the hype. finished it 100% in 10 hours. Get torchlight for 12 dollars instead

          1. I gave up after kingdom hearts 2. They are just milking the story. give us 3! even then I wont get it lol tired of square enix fucking around

              1. I wouldn’t start on Dream Drop Distance. You would be so lost in the story. That is, unless you watch a load of YouTube videos and read up on the many games before. :/

      1. Me too,i also can’t wait for a brand new starfox and metroid prime title, it would be so sweet

  2. I really wish that companies would learn that Street Pass DOESN’T WORK in North America. The population density and market penetration of the game systems isn’t sufficient for it. Don’t get me wrong, the idea is brilliant in Japan, but not in North America.

    Having all these amazing features that only work if you’re lucky enough to pass the one other schlub in your city, playing your game, who has his 3DS in his pocket/bag and turned on at the same time as you… That isn’t a satisfying game mechanic. It’s a frustrating one.

    The only time I’ve ever had Street Pass work for me is at conventions, which I go to maybe once or twice a year. I’ve been up and down two of my local college campuses and haven’t gotten a single tag.
