The New York Comic Con event takes place this week between October 13 and 16, and Square Enix will definitely draw some attention.
Firstly, they've sent over the list of games that attendees will be able to "preview and play" at the Square Enix booths: Final Fantasy XIII-2 , Wakfu , Heroes of Ruin , Dead Island and Deus Ex: Human Revolution .
It's great that attendees will actually be able to get their hands on FFXIII-2, but that's not the only appealing part of Comic Con this week. On Friday, Square Enix will provide an "East Meets West: Art Direction for a Worldwide Audience" presentation, featuring an exclusive panel that will show off concept and finished art from FFXIII-2 and Human Revolution . We're not entirely sure Square Enix has this whole "artistry for a worldwide audience" down pat just yet, but it should be interesting.
Other events include Tomb Raider 's 15th anniversary celebration, where fans can participate in an exclusive signing session with urban contemporary artist Camilla d'Errico. You can pick up a free 5×7 art print and autograph featuring d'Errico's unique interpretation of Tomb Raider . Then there's the FFXIII-2' "Word to Your Moogle" tour (enter to win exclusive prizes), and an overall celebration for the upcoming January 31 launch of FFXIII-2. Not that far off.
