Square Enix has announced Square Enix Presents, a digital Direct-style showcase that will feature new announcements and updates on upcoming games. The debut episode of Square Enix Presents will be going live a week from now, on March 18 at 10 AM Pacific Time, and will be a roughly 40 minutes long, with new trailer and announcements for multiple upcoming games.
Square Enix has confirmed that a new Life is Strange game will be announced at the showcase (with the game’s Twitter page confirming that fans can expect a new cast of characters, a new story, and a new central supernatural power). Reports have suggested that the series’ future will be handled by Before the Storm developers Deck Nine going forward, rather than by Dontnod Entertainment, and we’ll now know soon enough how true that is.
Meanwhile, Square Enix also confirms that you can look forward to updates on the likes of Balan Wonderworld, Outriders, Marvel’s Avengers, and more. A Just Cause mobile game is going to be unveiled, while several other mobile games from Square Enix Montreal will also be showcased. Announcements to celebrate Tomb Raider’s 25th anniversary will also be made- likely the recently leaked Tomb Raider: Definitive Survivor Trilogy. Meanwhile, you can also expect announcements from Square Enix’s sister company TAITO.
We will, of course, be covering the event live, so make sure to stick with GamingBolt for all the news and updates.
