  • Watch the Square Enix E3 Showcase 2018 Live Stream!

A new trailer, with Pirates of the Caribbean footage, was also released.

There were some cool moments, to be sure. They also spent a lot of time with close-ups of the tornadoes that will be blaring around in Just Cause 4, which is getting a December release date. 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.

Dragon Quest XI will be releasing on PS4 and Steam in the west on September 4.

Another new title announced during the stream was A Quiet Man.

E3 2018: Bethesda Goes All-In on Skyrim: Very Special Edition Joke
Everyone thought Bethesda is poking fun at itself with the Skyrim: Very Special Edition thing at its E3 2018 conference . It turns out, though, Skyrim: Very Special Edition is a very real thing.

While Square Enix's showcase was ultimately disappointing, it's all their own doing.

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.

Square Enix's presentation included information on two new games called Babylon's Fall and The Quiet Man, with no insight on what these games are gonna be about. They also haven't helped themselves by really bigging up their return to gaming's biggest event, only to set up shop, sell their incomplete wares, and pack it all up again before people even really had enough of a chance to browse.

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