There were some cool moments, to be sure.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider opened the show with some gameplay footage in this latest Lara Croft adventure going through some stealthy kills. The extreme weather looks pretty cool, actually, and, given that a lot of the Just Cause series seems to be about just finding the limits of weird stuff you can do with the game's wonky physics, this seems like it'd be pretty clutch. It looks like being even more chaotic than ever (if you can believe that) and is bound to provide great filler for YouTube compilations for the months after its release.

Alongside the Final Fantasy, Just Cause 4, and Tomb Raider announcements, Square Enix revealed a new game called The Quiet Man. Babylon's Fall, meanwhile, was only of interest because of PlatinumGames' name being attached to it. However, when it was all said and done, Square Enix had very little to offer.

Why the two new games are skipping the Xbox One is a mystery, especially as they're new IP, but since the excellent NieR: Automata (also a Platinum game) will be arriving on Microsoft's console on June 26 maybe it's more a question of when and not if. There will also be a crossover event with Brave Exvius.

Square Enix will reveal more details about this game on August so stay tuned for more. It's not just for the sake of their fans, but for the sake of their public image. That was the best.

Kingdom Hearts 3 has been one of the biggest games at E3 this year, with Square Enix finally announcing a release date for the much-awaited next major installment in the Kingdom Hearts franchise.
