Here’s what Square Enix announced at E3 2018

Here’s what Square Enix announced at E3 2018

Square Enix's presentation included information on two new games called Babylon's Fall and The Quiet Man, with no insight on what these games are gonna be about. Microsoft's conference was also home to a trailer for the game, which was then shown in even greater detail during Square Enix's briefing.

While Square Enix's showcase was ultimately disappointing, it's all their own doing. We also get to take a look at Frozen and Tangled.

Beginning the conference on a high note a new trailer was shown for Shadow of the Tomb Raider.

Following its E3 reveals, Square Enix released a large back of screenshots and artwork of its upcoming JRPG Kingdom Hearts III. The extreme weather looks pretty cool, actually, and, given that a lot of the Just Cause series seems to be about just finding the limits of weird stuff you can do with the game's wonky physics, this seems like it'd be pretty clutch. The dialogue was pretty very bad though and it wasn't made any better by the British-accented voiceovers.

If Square Enix are going to come again next year, they really need to bring their A game and not play nice with other publishers and give away their biggest tricks. Final Fantasy XIV and Monster Hunter: World are joining up to make two groups of nerds incredibly happy. The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit, a new game in the Life is odd universe, and the Xbox version of Nier: Automata were also announced yesterday, stripping today's presentations of any real excitement.
