Square Enix will have its own conference at the E3 2021 under the format adopted in its digital event last March, the Square Enix Presents. The appointment will take place on Sunday June 13 at 9:15 p.m. Spanish peninsular time and will have a duration of 40 minutes. The Japanese company has listed some of the games that we will see in that time, but it has also left inconcretions and has anticipated some “surprises” so that we attend the event with expectations.
The confirmed ones: Babylon’s Fall, Life is Strange, Avengers…
One of the highlights of the event will be Babylons Fall, the action game of PlatinumGames presented at E3 2018. In December 2019 we saw a gameplay which made clear the studio the game came from, but since then no new details of this production have been known to PS4 and PC. Steam leaked the existence of a beta which may be announced at this conference.
Life is Strange: True Colors, the new installment of the saga developed by Deck Nine So what leave out the episodic format, occupy an important part of the gala showing new gameplay. More details of Life is Strange: Remastered Collection, the compilation that ana the first game of the saga and Life is Strange: Before the Storm, but with the graphics engine of True Colors.
We will also know the next news of Marvels Avengers and especially of his first great expansion, War for Wakanda, which in addition to bringing Black Panther allows to remodel and refresh some of the game’s systems.
A practically confirmed rumor: Guardians of the Galaxy
It was in 2017, almost four years ago, that it was first spoken of agreement between Marvel and Square Enix include, in addition to the the Avengers, a game of Guardians of the Galaxy what was being developed by Eidos Montreal. The Japanese firm has ensured that announcing the new game from the studio responsible for Deus Ex: Human Revolution Y Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Different sources, but especially relevant is Jason Schreirer, assure that this game is the aforementioned Guardians of the Galaxy, and be the main claim of the conference.
The rumors and the possible ones: Final Fantasy Souls, Forsaken, Final Fantasy 16…
One of the most talked about rumors in recent weeks is that Team Ninja, the creators of Nioh, they are creating a Final Fantasy in the style of his saga, in turn inspired by the Dark Souls from FromSoftware. The title is supposed to be exclusive to PlayStation 5 and announce it Square Enix in their Presents. That s, it cannot be ruled out that that ad is saved by Sony for an upcoming event of their own, as it seems they will Final Fantasy XVI, of which it was said that there would be more information this year, but that it’s not on the poster of confirmed Presents.
Nor has it been confirmed that it will be Forspoken, formerly known as Project Athia, the role-playing and action game developed with the Luminous Engine and that s was present in the previous Presents. The game arrive in 2022 to PS5 and PC, but maybe not confirmed for the event because Square Enix plans to do more of its own digital conferences throughout this year.
No rumors have been mentioned or heard about it, but it cannot be ruled out that it is in this appointment where the date of launch in the West from NieR Re[in]carnation, the mobile adventure based on the saga created by Yoko Taro, or the battle royale Final Fantasy 7 The First Soldier. In addition, several games of Dragon Quest, and some of them may have a space in this quote.
In addition, NEO: The World Ends With You It is released just a month and a half after this event, so it would not be unreasonable to expect a new trailer. Similar is the case of Final Fantasy 14: Endwalker, the expansion of the MMO that promises to be the most ambitious to date while closing the story arc that began in 2013. Still, not everything fits: the conference lasts 40 minutes and we know that the Eidos game will dominate much of the time.
