Square Enix has announced their PAX 2011 games lineup, and fans should be excited to learn that PAX Prime attendees will be able to preview and play the following Square Enix titles at booth 3646:

FF XIII-2?! How could they? After everything their fans said about XIII…but what’s this? There’s something else? A secret new game is going to be announced? Oh yes, behold:
In addition to getting hands-on with the games, PAX attendees will be the first to see Square Enix and Airtight Games globally reveal a top-secret joint project through their exclusive panel. Meet the development team, including Creative Director Kim Swift (PORTAL™, Left 4 Dead® 1, Left 4 Dead 2) and the rest of the Airtight Games team, and hear their explanation of how they are bringing an incredibly fascinating and quirky game to life. The panel will be held on Saturday, August 27 at 7:00 p.m. in the Pegasus Room.
Sounds cool. Can’t argue with a history that includes PORTAL and the Left 4 Dead franchise. We’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for that announcement. Square also invites all PAX Prime attendees to take part in community events devoted to DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION and FINAL FANTASY XIII-2:
