Square Enix Unveils Dungeon Encounters, Directed By Hiroyuki Ito

Out this month!

Square Enix has wrapped up its live show at TGS, which was a pretty solid showing overall. It also unveiled a surprise new title called Dungeon Encounters, which is directed by Hiroyuki Ito and will feature the ATB (Active Time Battle) system that he pioneered for the Final Fantasy series.
