Square Enix E3 2018: The Five Biggest Announcements

Square Enix E3 2018: The Five Biggest Announcements

Square Enix may not have the most to show off at the 2018 Electronic Entertainment Expo trade show in Los Angeles this week, but it does have some of the most anticipated games in development.

A brand new game from Square Enix, Babylon's Fall takes place in the far future and perhaps mimics the fall of real-world Babylon in 500s BCE.

Just Cause 4 is confirmed as coming to PC and PS4 on December 4 with a new gameplay trailer above.

E3 2018: Just Cause 4 Shown Off In Detail By Square Enix
Platinum Games is best known for games such as Vanquish , NieR: Automata , and the upcoming Granblue Fantasy Project Re:Link. It was a bite-sized 30-minute look at Square Enix's plans moving forward, with plenty for fans to get hyped over.

That suggests the transition we saw in the video is how the game works - blending TV show style cut scenes with gameplay. 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.

Another new title announced during the stream was A Quiet Man. But the biggest disappointment for us is the lack of news of whatever Square Enix's Marvel project is going to be.

The trailer also showed some more hints at the bigger plot of Kingdom Hearts 3, including the return of some fan-favorite characters.

Trump casts North Korea summit as 'one-time shot' for Kim
Earlier on Sunday evening, Trump arrived at Singapore's Paya Lebar Air Base and is now staying at the Shangri-La Hotel. Kim's North Korean delegation will include his sister Kim Yo Jong, White House officials cited by Bloomberg noted.

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

Other trailered games included Nier: Automata: Become As Gods, Octopath Traveler, Dragon Quest XI, Under the Moonlight, Monster Hunter World and Stormblood. The dialogue was pretty bad though and it wasn't made any better by the British-accented voiceovers.

What was disappointing though was that there was no mention at all of Square Enix's Avengers game, which previous year they'd implied would be revealed at E3.
