Who Needs Batman When You Have Adam Jensen: Square Enix at Comic-Con 2011
Move over Caped Crusader, you and your little gadgets are going to look outdated standing next to Adam Jensen and human augmentations. With Comic-Con 2011 at San Diego fast approaching us, we’re suddenly getting all the stars and studs of both the video gaming world and the comic world all at once. It’s like Hollywood in overdrive. With a side of stealthy bad-assery.
Square-Enix won’t be sneaking into this event. Oh no, they’ll be going straight for the jugular with their lineup of AAA titles, much like Microsoft, who’s bringing in the big guns as well. So move on over Batman, because we want to see Mr. Jensen kick some butt. Robin can stay away as well, since zombies are on our minds too.
Lucky fans attending the event will get hands on time with Dead Island, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Final Fantasy XIII-2, and Wakfu. Along with the previews and demos, Square-Enix will also be the gracious host of two panels, devoted to their favorite children Deus Ex and Dead Island.
One of the panels featured will be about the universe of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, the impact of science, and the technology currently available in bio-mechanical augmentations. Eidos-Montreal community manager Kyle Stallock, lead writer Mary DeMarle, and CEO of MicroTransponder Will Rossellini will be doing some Q&A, showing off some game footage, and of course be chatting up story developments for Deus Ex.
If you’re more inclined towards those of the undead persuasion, then Square-Enix has got you covered too. Join the science editor of GamePro Andrew Groen along with Dead Island‘s lead writer Haris Orkin and other science folk to discuss and explore the myth (and maybe the reality) of these undead monsters.
However, if you’re hungering for news on Hitman: Absolution or the newest Tomb Raider installment, you’re going to be out of luck. Mysteriously absent from Square-Enix’s Comic-Con lineup are these two huge titles, but perhaps the save may be meant for just a little later. Tokyo Game Show, perhaps? We’ll have to see.
