Square Enix to showcase new Final Fantasy and Hitman titles at London Comic Con


Cold-blooded assassin or sci-fi swordmaster; what sort of hero would you be? SQUARE ENIX® is giving gamers the choice by bringing both FINAL FANTASY® XIII-2 and HITMAN ABSOLUTION™ along to MCM Expo London Comic Con.

Although not due for release until next year, Square Enix have announced that show visitors will be able to get hands-on with FINAL FANTASY XIII-2. The sequel to 2010’s FINAL FANTASY XIII, XIII-2 tells the story of Lightning’s sister Serah, and features a new battle system that allows players to command monsters as well as a variety of new options supporting multiple playthroughs.

The publisher will also be giving show visitors a sneak peek of HITMAN ABSOLUTION, showcasing the stealth-em-up with a series of behind-closed-doors presentations. The fifth instalment of the bestselling franchise will run on IO Interactive’s new proprietary Glacier 2 game engine, and will boast a cinematic story, distinctive art direction and highly original game design.
