Back in 2005, Square Enix released "Kingdom Hearts II" for the PlayStation 2. Admittedly, there was a huge Kingdom Hearts event last month, but couldn't the publisher have summoned some new information for today's event?

Square Enix's E3 2018 showcase is short and sweet

There were some cool moments, to be sure.

Square showed off a slice of gameplay that shows hero Lara Croft doing some Assassin's Creed-style stealth murders. But we already knew about Shadow of the Tomb Raider. 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. Of course, we can expect another look atShadow of the Tomb Raider and Just Cause 4.

So what did we get instead? The title is Babylon's Fall, and you can see a brief teaser below. It's hard to glean too much from the quick shots of gameplay, but we do some combos and counters alongside cinematic close-ups of the action. If you want to check out the trailer for The Quiet Man, it's embedded right above. Babylon's Fall, meanwhile, was only of interest because of PlatinumGames' name being attached to it. But again, Square Enix made a decision to show a slightly modified trailer from the Xbox press conference. A lot of games that were presented at Microsoft's E3 press conference. Square Enix revealed some cinematic cutscenes as well as gameplay of the main protagonist slashing a dragon with a giant sword, riding a horse throughout the world and wielding an interesting "Light" power that seems to be the focus of the game. It's not just for the sake of their fans, but for the sake of their public image. This is one of the most expensive collector's editions we've seen as the bundle costs $230 (roughly Rs. 15,500) and it includes a steelbook case, an art book, three figures (Sora, Goofy, and Donald Duck), along with a Kingdom Hearts 3 collectible pin, and the game disc of course.
