PAX East 2019

Ahead of PAX East 2019 later this week, the sci-fi action RPG Hellpoint has received a brand new trailer. View the video below.

Hellpoint arrives on Switch later this year.

Square Enix today announced its lineup for PAX East 2019. Highlights include Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon Every Buddy, Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster, and Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age. While Dragon Quest Builders 2 will also only be appearing at the company’s booth on PlayStation 4, we do know that Nintendo’s booth will have the Switch version.

Here’s Square Enix’s complete lineup:

Hello, my beautiful bokoblins! This week on NEP, we talk all about collector’s editions and how things have gotten out of hand with some publishers. Then we talk about GDC and PAX East being right around the corner and all of the potential announcements, teasers and leaks. Particularly of note is a new game in the publisher catalog of Yacht Club, the geniuses behind Shovel Knight! And Galen reminisces on his past PAX experiences throughout the show, too.

Thank you for all of your support and for sharing the podcast with others. We’re growing at a great pace, and it’s all thanks to you as listeners! Check below for more details!

Yacht Club Games will be attending PAX East 2019 at the end of this month. Shovel Knight: King of Cards and Shovel Knight Showdown will be playable, and it also looks like a completely different project will be brought to the show.

In an email sent out today, it was mentioned that an “all-new addition to the Yacht Club Games Publisher catalog” will be present at PAX. It doesn’t necessarily sound like Yacht Club is developing this directly, but may only be publishing similar to how the company was responsible for distributing Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack on 3DS.

Nintendo has announced the lineup of playable games that will be on display at PAX East 2019 this month, in addition to overall plans for the event.

The final events for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate North America Open 2019 and Splatoon 2 North America Inkling Open 2019 will both be held on March 30 at the PAX Arena. If you have a PAX East Saturday badge, it can be attended for free on a first-come, first-served basis. Those who won’t be at PAX can watch the action online as well.
