Square Enix to showcase new Final Fantasy and Hitman titles at London Comic Con

Cold-blooded assassin or sci-fi swordmaster; what sort of hero would you be? SQUARE ENIX® is giving gamers the choice by bringing both FINAL FANTASY® XIII-2 and HITMAN ABSOLUTION™ along to MCM Expo London Comic Con.

Although not due for release until next year, Square Enix have announced that show visitors will be able to get hands-on with FINAL FANTASY XIII-2. The sequel to 2010's FINAL FANTASY XIII, XIII-2 tells the story of Lightning's sister Serah, and features a new battle system that allows players to command monsters as well as a variety of new options supporting multiple playthroughs.

The publisher will also be giving show visitors a sneak peek of HITMAN ABSOLUTION, showcasing the stealth-em-up with a series of behind-closed-doors presentations. The fifth instalment of the bestselling franchise will run on IO Interactive's new proprietary Glacier 2 game engine, and will boast a cinematic story, distinctive art direction and highly original game design.

Dead Cute: Limited Edition Little Apple Doll Launches at London Comic Con

Horror fans, otaku and lovers of Gothic Lolita fashion will want to check out the Screaming Matriarch stand at this month's MCM Expo London Comic Con, where artist Yurei Urie will be showcasing her latest limited edition Little Apple Doll.

Following the popularity of her Supernae doll at May's London Comic Con, Yurei returns with a brand new addition to the Little Apple Doll range, Ailuro. Only 100 of the Ailuro dolls will ever be produced and each comes with a certificate of authenticity signed by Yurei, who will be at the show to meet fans.

London Comic Con visitors will also be able to enter an exclusive competition to win a limited edition signed Ailuro doll with original artwork by Yurei.

Yurei's creepily cute characters represent children who have died and now wander a world known as The Inbetween, with each of the dolls coming with an illustrated story booklet detailing how they came to walk that realm.

Ailuro Doll

Please note: Image shows prototype Ailuro doll. Ailuro available on general release will have black costume only.
