Thief ‘Uprising’ trailer
Earlier today at it’s Gamescom press conference, Square Enix dropped a new cinematic trailer for it’s upcoming stealth title Thief. The video, dubbed the “Uprising” trailer, showcases the game’s dark Victorian setting and highlights the growing tensions between the rich and the poor. In addition to the new footage, Square Enix also announced a release date for the game. You can expect Thief to hit stores on February 28th for current- and next-gen consoles.
Final Fantasy XIII: Lightning Returns
In addition to the new Thief trailer, Square Enix also released a fresh new video for Final Fantasy XIII: Lightning Returns.

Lightning Returns is set to hit stores in North America on February 11th and Europe on February 14th.
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes
These Lego games are getting out of control. TT Games and Warner Bros are set to release Lego Marvel Superheroes this fall, and if this trailer is any indication, the game is going to be ridiculous. Apparently, the game will boast over 100 different playable characters – everyone from the Hulk to the Human Torch – and, as seen in the last few seconds of this video, will feature the gigantic villain Galactus.
