We don’t know about you, but at PT, our excitement today is palpable, and no, it’s not because we’re nearly at the end of the work week, but because we can’t wait to see all the Summer Game Fest 2022 announcements later – trust Geoff to come to the rescue after E3’s absence this year.
Gamers all around the world are in for a treat later, and while we don’t know exactly what we can expect to see when it comes to Summer Game Fest 2022, we know there’s bound to be at least one thing to satisfy every gamer, no matter what platform it is you prefer. Naturally, we have a keen eye on any Summer Game Fest 2022 Switch announcements and, of course, mobile.
However, a lot of other major companies are present in tonight’s showcase, and we’ve got to admit, it might be Square Enix that takes the cake for us. Yes, we love all manner of publishers, but our editor, Ruby, lives and breathes Final Fantasy, Tilly can recite Kingdom Hearts phrases in her sleep, and the rest of the gang love at least one Square Enix franchise (or all of them in Kayleigh’s case).
