'Shadow of the Tomb Raider' (ALL) - New Screens & Trailer

There were two new Square Enix games announced in the E3 2018 showcase. No Final Fantasy VII remake details and nothing on The Avengers or Guardians of the Galaxy.

There were still some new Square Enix games announced in the press conference, but the developer and publisher failed in giving gamers the information that they wanted.

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. But, to be honest, we were expecting loads more from Square Enix. The best hope we have is that at some point between now and the next showing of The Quiet Man, they change the title.

The Quiet Man's trailer shows what appears to be a deaf dude beating the hell out of some gang members?

A third franchise prequel, carrying on from 2013's Tomb Raider and 2015's Rise of the Tomb Raider, sees adventurous archaeologist Lara Croft race to prevent a Mayan apocalypse.

The 2 stand out title announcements in the presentation are Babylon's Fall and the Quiet Man. Babylon's Fall is a new IP from Platinum Games.

Buried in its E3 conference today, Square Enix gave us one last look at the upcoming JRPG, Octopath Traveler ahead of its release on the Nintendo Switch next month. It's coming out as a free to play game on June 26.

The Kingdom Hearts 3 Frozen stage is now ingrained in my head.

Five years after its reveal at E3 2013, Kingdom Hearts 3 finally has a release date and it's open for pre-orders now too.

Unfortunately, it still looks like the Nintendo 3DS version of the game is canceled in the West.

Babylon's Fall is coming to PS4 and PC in 2019.

The visual style struck me as if I was looking at Gareth Evans film The Raid in video game form. Still, we're intrigued to see what Square plans to do to follow up on the third (massive!) game in the series. A Ratatouille summon was shown, along with some more new story content.

The game seems to be set in New York City, although from my own experience it needs about five times as many people as we see in the trailer for a more accurate portrayal. Though not much about the story itself was discussed, the trailer highlights the games eight different characters.
