Square Enix's E3 2018 showcase is short and sweet

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.

The "day one" Edition of Light is available either physically or digitally for PS4 or PC.

Square Enix showed off a chunk of gameplay from the upcoming Tomb Raider game, showing Lara Croft pulling off a whole bunch of deadly and creative stealth assassinations. A way of saying, "Yes, we know you want this, and we're working on it". There will also be an all-in-one package on PlayStation 4 that contains Kingdom Hearts HD I.5 + II.5, Kingdom Hearts II.8 Final Chapter Prologue, and Kingdom Hearts III. Just Cause 4 was the same - a competent trailer, but one that fans had basically seen during the Xbox showcase.

Square Enix will reveal more details about this game on August so stay tuned for more. The teaser showed nothing worth clinging to otherwise. A lot of games that were presented at Microsoft's E3 press conference.

But, there were a few reveals that made Square Enix's showcase worth checking out. They also haven't helped themselves by really bigging up their return to gaming's biggest event, only to set up shop, sell their incomplete wares, and pack it all up again before people even really had enough of a chance to browse. That was the best.

It's been a while since Square Enix has used E3 for any major announcements, but they're going all-in this year, started with a pre-recorded livestream featuring their current line-up.
