Here’s what Square Enix announced at E3 2018


Just Cause 4 is promising to be much better than its predecessor, and Square Enix highlighted some of the new game's improvements during its E3 2018 showcase.

Babylon's Fall is set to release in 2019 on PS4 and Steam.

This makes the Square Enix E3 2018 showcase one to look forward to. We got a small look at the beautifully rendered, ridiculously named Octopath Traveler for Switch next month. The teaser was a odd mixture of live action and in-game graphics, but the central gimmick seems to be that the main character is deaf.

Square Enix has announced a new game called The Quiet Man, and released its announcement trailer.

More information was promised in August, which perhaps means Gamescom.

In terms of other games Kingdom Hearts III was exactly the same trailer as shown at Microsoft's media briefing yesterday, but it did reconfirm the release date as January 29. Some Shadow of the Tomb Raider gameplay was welcomed, showcasing how Lara is basically just asking out MGS: Tomb Eater now with her dispatching of bad guys with the same freedom as Nathan Drake with just as little in the way of a conscience.

Developer Platinum Games, which also made Nier: Automata, gave a glimpse of its upcoming project with a timeline-centric trailer.

While it is the eleventh mainline entry in the critically acclaimed series, DRAGON QUEST XI is a completely standalone experience that features entirely new characters, a beautifully detailed world, finely tuned turn-based combat, and an immersive story that will appeal to long-time fans and franchise newcomers alike.

Unfortunately for Square Enix, the slew of trailers thrown in felt underwhelming since majority have already been seen before- many of them were shown at Microsoft's conference on Sunday.
