The most exciting games from Square Enix's E3 showcase

The most exciting games from Square Enix's E3 showcase

This one's still a little mysterious, but one of the games shown during Square Enix's E3 2018 press conference was the latest from Bayonetta developer PlatinumGames. From the looks of it, it's a fantasy-themed action game with possible co-op (right at the end of the teaser trailer we can see four characters standing together, presumably before entering battle).

We're probably going to see even more of Kingdom Hearts III, considering that the trailer that was showcased at the Orchestra Concert (featuring Ratatouille and Tangled) hasn't been publicly revealed yet.

Square showed off a slice of gameplay that shows hero Lara Croft doing some Assassin's Creed-style stealth murders. The teaser was a unusual mixture of live action and in-game graphics, but the central gimmick seems to be that the main character is deaf. Final Fantasy XIV and Monster Hunter: World are joining up to make two groups of nerds incredibly happy.

THE QUIET MAN™ delivers an immersive story driven cinematic action experience seamlessly blending high-production live action, realistic CG and pulse-pounding action gameplay. This was an early glimpse, with more information coming in August 2018.

The Quiet Man is now in development for the PlayStation 4 and PC.




Just Cause 4 has four distinct biomes: Rainforest, Grasslands, Alpine & Desert.

Other trailered games included Nier: Automata: Become As Gods, Octopath Traveler, Dragon Quest XI, Under the Moonlight, Monster Hunter World and Stormblood.

Not that we're complaining, as the sandbox destruction looked as fun as ever - especially with the new extreme weather effects and more versatile grapple hook.

We're also really looking forward to playing the free prequel to Life Is Strange 2, called The Awesome Adventures Of Captain Spirit - which will be released on June 26.

After an exciting day full of announcements from Microsoft and Bethesda on Sunday, Square Enix is kicking things off on Monday with its first E3 press conference since 2015. Not much else is known at the moment, though you can watch a trailer for it below.
