Square Enix’s E3 showcase was a bust

Watch the Square Enix E3 Showcase 2018 Live Stream!

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. This is one of the most expensive collector's editions we've seen as the bundle costs $230 (roughly Rs. 15,500) and it includes a steelbook case, an art book, three figures (Sora, Goofy, and Donald Duck), along with a Kingdom Hearts 3 collectible pin, and the game disc of course.

It's out next year, but only for PlayStation 4 and PC.

Unveiled for the first time during PlayStation's E3 2018 press conference earlier today, neither Sony nor Square Enix have provided addition information regarding the console though.

In a rather short showcase at E3 Monday, Square Enix teased a handful of games - mostly ones that have already been announced - to get people excited about what's in store for the near future.

Square Enix's hilariously brief E3 livestream - in their minor defence, they avoided using the word "conference" when promoting it - was pretty much the opposite of what most fans both wanted and expected.

Capcom Reveals First Screenshots and Details for Resident Evil 2
Will they make it out alive? The remake of the title will be different, switching to a new modern third-person perspective. Additionally, it seems like it will feature the same over the shoulder camera as Resident Evil 4 .

Just Cause 4's existence still seems rather baffling, as despite having a longer trailer than at Microsoft's media briefing there was no mention of any multiplayer features or other unique selling points that might justify another sequel to a series that has never seemed to be particularly popular.

It looks like a modern day NY setting, with the mute protagonist beating up a selection of gang members, while the tag line reads "silence rings loudest".

Dragon Quest XI was also looking very good, with great graphics and an interesting, somewhat Zelda-esque, open world. Monster Hunter: World and Final Fantasy XIV will be pairing up in Summer 2018 as the Rathalos appears in FFXIV.

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 unusual including some links to entice players.

But, there were a few reveals that made Square Enix's showcase worth checking out.
