Square Enix's E3 2018 Sure Was Disappointing

Watch the Square Enix E3 Showcase 2018 Live Stream

Shadow of the Tomb Raider opened the show with some gameplay footage in this latest Lara Croft adventure going through some stealthy kills.

Other Square Enix titles that should have some stage time include Just Cause 4, Octopath Traveler, the Final Fantasy 7 remake that was announced three years ago, and the Avengers project from Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal.

But we already knew about Kingdom Hearts 3. Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age will be coming on September 4th.

We also get some more insight into some of the background story with Organization XIII, and a character I swore I killed deader than dead in an earlier game.

The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit is up next with two members of DONTNOD explaining how this game will relate to Season 2 of Life is odd including some links to entice players.

The next Dragon Quest title is shown detailing a new dark force taking over the world and the call to arms that the protagonist has to answer.

While Square Enix's showcase was ultimately disappointing, it's all their own doing.

Why the two new games are skipping the Xbox One is a mystery, especially as they're new IP, but since the excellent NieR: Automata (also a Platinum game) will be arriving on Microsoft's console on June 26 maybe it's more a question of when and not if.

What are you hoping to see at the Square Enix E3 Showcase? There will also be a crossover event with Brave Exvius. The bad news? Square Enix is keeping quiet on details until August. It's not just for the sake of their fans, but for the sake of their public image. Square Enix's conference, meanwhile, was supposed to show the publisher back to their best, but instead it showed them at their most complacent.
