Exclusives Aplenty – The Games of London Comic Con 2012

by Jasdeep SahotaMay 25, 2012

London Comic Con is just around the corner and it looks like the gamers in attendance have a ton of stuff to look forward to.

More than 20 games have been confirmed for the show, representing the likes of Nintendo, Capcom, Square Enix and Warner Bros Interactive (among others).

Have a perusal at the confirmed title list below and you’ll no doubt notice a fair few exclusives- some of which are being made playable in the UK for the first time. Notable entries include the potentially pant-soiling Aliens: Colonial Marines, the lightning-quick Dead or Alive 5, the 3D-ified (yes that’s a word) Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance and the rather raunchy Lollipop Chainsaw.

There’s also going to be a bunch of side events like the Swap Shop & Battle table for Kid Icarus Uprising, a Gamespot UK stage (with mysterious Beat the Beat: Rhythm Paradise activities) and around a dozen “fringe” events that’ll take place around the expo grounds.

Basically, the gaming side of the show is packed. If you fancy attending, it all kicks off proper on Saturday the 26th of May. Check out for more info.

    I was wondering if anyone knows if square-enix is planning to make any of the other games into movies like ffv did with advent children. Is there any word at all? I would love to see FFVII or FFX made into a movie.

    I want to write the stories for games and I want to work with Square Enix. I’m in school right now so what classes should I focus on mostly to get there?
    I’ve had my English teachers read parts of my stories and they are interested with my work.

    I’m really into the Final Fantasy video game series and games like that. I’ve recently noticed that up untill about 2003, the games were being produced by a company called Square Soft. But I’ve noticed that the games that have been produced thereafter are by a company called Square Enix. Was Square Enix once Square Soft or are they completely unrelated?

  • Abbey Spencer

    Like why are some final fantasies made by Squaresoft and others Square Enix?

  • Joanne Mefford

    Okay so I am a big Final Fantasy fan and I was wondering do Square Enix have a store you can go in? If so where is it located? Because I really wanna go there. Also what is in the store? Like is it toys or games?

    I was wondering if anyone knew the song that plays usually when you go to the Dirge Of Cerberus page (under PS2 games) on the Square Enix website, and click the tab that says ‘FINAL FANTASY VII TRIBUTE’, and it’s this pian song. It’s really pretty.

    I really want to find a good website that has information on past Square Enix games, currently/newly released games, and future projects for North America. Preferably with ratings, and which ones were most popular and such. This would really help a LOT!!
