Watch the Square Enix E3 2018 press conference live stream right here

Instead, all we received from Square Enix at E3 2018 was a short and succinct showcase that had already blown its biggest reveal way in advance: the Kingdom Hearts 3 release date. Despite the Luminary being on the receiving end of a monologue about how harsh their life has been so far - and then taking part in a battle against the undead - it's all quite strangely celebratory.

Just Cause 4 launches on December 4th on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

There was very little information on it, other than the implication that it has a pretty complex backstory and what seems to be a tone more similar to Dark Souls than Bayonetta.


Kingdom Hearts 3 and Shadow of the Tomb Raider publisher Square Enix hasn't had an E3 presentation for three years. There's just such a harsh divide between the extended demos of Western games coming out of what used to be Eidos and the nigh-incomprehensible trailers of Japanese role-playing games from Square Enix proper. Not content jockeying for space inside big first-party press conferences for Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo, they needed stages all to themselves.

Developer Platinum Games, which also made Nier: Automata, gave a glimpse of its upcoming project with a timeline-centric trailer.

Octopath Traveler was also given a quick name check, while a crossover with Monster Hunter: World was announced for MMO Final Fantasy XIV Online this summer. A new video showed off the latest installment in the open-world crazy-fest and its focus on extreme weather like tornados and lightning.
