Square Enix may be known for their incredible toys and collectibles in the toy industry, but outside of toys they are mostly known for their timeless video game franchises like Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, and western properties like Tomb Raider and Deus Ex.

Check out the images below to see what you can look forward to from Square Enix in the coming year!
