Besides that, fans can also look forward to their panels below:

FINAL FANTASY XIV: Stormblood – Tales of Localization & Lore
Saturday, September 2 from 1:00pm – 2:00pm – Hydra Theater
English Localization Lead Michael-Christopher Koji Fox will discuss various topics on the lore and localization behind FINAL FANTASY XIV: Stormblood. He will also be answering various lore-related questions gathered from the official forum.
These games are fine, but I guess the crazy pie-in-the-sky wish would have been a crack at Kingdom Hearts 3 or a panel on that crazily-named Octopath Traveller for Switch that looks awesome. That said, PAX has traditionally been an event with a little less in terms of announcements, and glad to see What’s Good Gaming host the Life Is Strange party, which should be fun!
