Square Enix's E3 2018 showcase is short and sweet

E3 2018 Octopath Traveler Trailer Revealed

What are you hoping to see at the Square Enix E3 Showcase? However, when it was all said and done, Square Enix had very little to offer.

More information was promised in August, which perhaps means Gamescom.

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.

The upcoming open-world game will feature plenty of enhancements, such as an improved AI that will keep players on their toes, improved weather effects and, most of all, improved physics, with the grappling system also getting some noticeable improvements.

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. Additionally we saw the Kingdom Hearts III trailer we saw at the Microsoft event yesterday, along with a deeper look into Captain Spirit, which looks cute, but I find it hard to get super excited about.

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.

Square Enix has announced The Quiet Man for PS4 and PC, and not much else at the moment.

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.
