The stealthy gameplay from Shadow of the Tomb Raider was interesting, but lacked impact after the cinematic trailer that was shown yesterday.
What was Just Cause 4 doing here? The Quiet Man is a weird pitch but a new IP, which I will always approve of.
It was nice to see Dragon Quest XI in the spotlight, a series that often doesn't enjoy its share of mainstream.

The most exciting games from Square Enix's E3 showcase
It's been a while since Square Enix has used E3 for any major announcements, but they're going all-in this year, started with a pre-recorded livestream featuring their current line-up.
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. 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.
Square Enix will reveal more details about this game on August so stay tuned for more. Additionally we saw the Kingdom Hearts III trailer we saw at the Microsoft event yesterday, along with a deeper look into Captain Spirit, which looks cute, but I find it hard to get super excited about. It's not just for the sake of their fans, but for the sake of their public image.
Square Enix's E3 briefing included a new trailer for Just Cause 4 showcasing gameplay, the stunning new game world, and a great deal of destruction.
