    While I agree that it is most likely Deus Ex, even though it would be a moronic decision, I was digging a little deeper into Square Enix and found something interesting.

    Crystal Dynamics is working on a new IP that was allegedly supposed to be announced last year. With Nintendo trying to get back third-party support for the Wii U, is it completely out of the realm of possibility that they got in touch with CD and Squeenix?

    If they intended to announce the title late in 2012, it is possible Nintendo threw some money their way to delay the announcement until the launch dust settled. Granted, PAX East is a bit late, but Nintendo probably didn’t see the dropoff coming.

    PAX East is the largest event since launch and Nintendo knows they need to start pulling games out from behind the curtain sooner rather than later. SE still gets to announce the title in order to claim they are a 3rd party supporting Nintendo, and with 3 titles coming next week before PAX, Ninty doesn’t need to have a ND until the week after. Agreeing to PAX ensures a timely announcement, and SE gets the glory of the reveal, rather than the rug being pulled out with a Nintendo Direct. Iwata did say he was eager to share what 3rd parties were working on after all….

    Or course, this is all conjecture but it at least provides a bit of a talking point rather than just taking random stabs in the dark. Thoughts?

    P.S. PAX East is from the 22-24

      lol thanks for the correction to the dates. In my opinion it is going to be either Deus Ex or Tomb Raider. I highly doubt SE will make an exclusive AAA exclusive. A long shot might be a final fantasy chrystal chronicle game. At this point we might as well wait until pax :) thanks for your thoughtful comment 😛

        Yeah, I’m guessing Deus Ex too….even though they are sending it to die. They’ll probably use it as a litmus test for 3rd party games on Wii U as well…. “See??? Our games don’t sell on Nintendo systems!”

        PAX is going to be interesting for sure. Hopefully we get a Pikmin release date out of it.

          i know right human revolution is a terrible idea, the game is so old. Yep i want to know when pikmin is coming 😛
