LOS ANGELES (July 18, 2011) — Square Enix, Inc., the publisher of SQUARE ENIX® interactive entertainment products in the Americas, has announced its lineup for San Diego Comic–Con, set to take place July 21–24.

Comic–Con attendees will be able to preview and play the following Square Enix titles:

DEAD ISLAND™ — In Deep Silver's hotly anticipated action title, the lush island paradise of Banoi truly is a holiday destination with everything — including a lethal zombie outbreak.
DEUS EX®: HUMAN REVOLUTION™ — Eidos–Montreal brings back one of the most critically acclaimed franchises of all time with one of 2011's most highly anticipated games. Due out August 23, attendees can experience the multi–path, action RPG gameplay at the Square Enix booth.
FINAL FANTASY® XIII–2 — Serah and Noel are desperately seeking Lightning in the next installment from Square Enix's all–star production team.
WAKFU® — The latest role playing game from Ankama Studios (DOFUS) turned heads at this year’s E3 show — now Comic–Con attendees get their chance to experience the world of WAKFU.

In addition to being able to get hands–on with the games, Comic–Con attendees will have the opportunity to gain a new perspective on both DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION and DEAD ISLAND. Two one–hour panels devoted to the games are available to attendees:

Thursday July 21, 11:00 am: The World of 2027 in DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION: Join Eidos–Montreal community manager Kyle Stallock as he moderates a discussion between Mary DeMarle (lead writer, Eidos-Montreal) and Will Rossellini (CEO, MicroTransponder). The two will discuss the vision and moral landscape of transhumanism in DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION and compare it to current scientific advances in the field of bio–mechanical augmentation. Extended footage from the game will make its world debut at this can't–miss session in room 5A. There will be a Q&A session following immediately after the panel.
Friday July 22, 7:30 pm: Find out what makes DEAD ISLAND’s zombies tick as GamePro’s science editor, Andrew Groen, joins Dead Island writer Haris Orkin, Harvard psychiatrist and author of The Zombie Autopsies, Dr. Steven C. Schlozman, author of The Zombie Survival Guide Max Brooks, and UC Berkeley’s neuroscience expert Brad Voytek to explore the misunderstood monsters in a panel that will be anything but dead simple. Shuffle to Room 8 to pick their brains.
