E3 2018 is in full swing and it’s a glorious, glorious time for video game fans across the globe! But here’s the rub, the announcements are coming so fast and furious that we’re already buried in awesomeness. This is a good problem to have. This year, we thought we’d save you countless hours by highlighting the top 3 coolest things from each major press conference. For those wanting it all, you can watch the entire conference in the video above!
Square Enix has some cool games coming out, but I’m not sure they need to be hosting such a big press conference alongside the giants such as Sony and Microsoft. That said, here are the top 3 coolest things I saw:
SHADOW OF THE TOMB RAIDER
Square Enix’s TOMB RAIDER franchise is definitely one of the best out there today. There’s not much to compete with it except UNCHARTED of course. I love how those two franchises are always going back and forth. One second I think UNCHARTED is better, than a new TOMB RAIDER comes out and everything I thought I knew is flushed down the toilet! The third installment in the series reboot looks just as gorgeous as ever. I’m happy to see such an iconic video game character still starring in games I consider “must-own”.
KINGDOM HEART 3
KINGDOM HEARTS is an overwhelmingly beloved franchise and fans have been waiting for KINGDOM HEARTS for a long time. It’s been a long time since KINGDOM HEART 2 release way back on the Playstation 2, and fans deserve a true sequel. Sure there have been countless spin-off games and HD remasters to keep people busy, but nothing compares to a true sequel. Looks fun. I may have to revisit one of those HD remasters and catch up now! KINGDOM HEARTS 3 releases January 11th, 2019.
DRAGON QUEST XI
I’ve only played DRAGON QUEST X so I don’t consider myself a huge fan. It was a glorious game full of cool characters, awe-inspiring monster designs, and an epic story. Make no mistake, a new DRAGON QUEST is a big deal and XI looks stunning. Fans can look forward to this on September 9th, 2018.
-OCTOPATH TRAVELER coming exclusively to the Nintendo Switch looks stunning and will release July 13th, 2018. So close!
