Here’s what Square Enix announced at E3 2018

Packed lightly and only 45 minutes long, in terms of surprises, it was reserved to two games: Babylon's Fall, a new PlatinumGames joint, and The Quiet Man, a brand-new game from Human Head Studios, who you may recognize as the team behind the infamously cancelled Prey 2 (as well as from 2006's Prey). The game will be available September 4, 2018 for PS4 and PC worldwide.

Outside of that, there was a sneak peek at a new title called The Quiet Man, which at first glance seems to be a title devoted to a deaf man punching Hispanic dudes in alleys throughout NY. The teaser was a odd mixture of live action and in-game graphics, but the central gimmick seems to be that the main character is deaf.

Square Enix had some lovely footage of the Dragon Quest 11 English localization for E3 2018.

More information was promised in August, which perhaps means Gamescom. We got a glimpse at the story in Dragon Quest XI and the kinds of battles and skirmishes we can expect from the latest entry in the storied series. The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit, a new game in the Life is unusual universe, and the Xbox version of Nier: Automata were also announced yesterday, stripping today's presentations of any real excitement.

On the Western front we got all of the guns and open-world action with new looks at Shadow of The Tomb Raider (still better than Uncharted) and Just Cause 4.

Fans have already been waiting half their lives for Kingdom Hearts III-you push people way too far, Square Enix! There is no word of a release date. The dialogue was pretty very bad though and it wasn't made any better by the British-accented voiceovers.

What was disappointing though was that there was no mention at all of Square Enix's Avengers game, which past year they'd implied would be revealed at E3.

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.
