The Square Enix E3 2018 showcase will probably be the most disappointing one in this year’s E3. To be fair, it was already a known fact that it will be streamed video showcase. Though, that didn’t stop the hype from building up. Come on, it’s Square Enix. We were expecting at least a sneak at Final Fantasy VII. The showcase fell flat since the Kingdom Heart x Frozen trailer was already shown during the Microsoft Xbox showcase earlier. Honestly the FFXIV x Monster Hunter: World crossover got me seriously hyped but that’s because I’m a player of both of those game. I can’t say everyone else feels the same. We rate this Square Enix showcase 5/10 🙁
The quick 30 minutes video showcase kicked off with a Shadow of the Tomb Raider gameplay video. Since it’s pretty short, we’ll list down all the game they show or you can watch it above!

That’s pretty much the whole show. It wasn’t very impressive since the Kingdom Heart III trailer is just a rerun. Hopefully, Final Fantasy VII will make an appearance in Sony’s showcase later. That game’s remake is getting real close to becoming the next Half-Life 3. In case you missed out on the showcases from yesterday, here’s Microsoft Xbox’s and here’s Bethesda’s.
