The news that Kingdom Hearts 3 would be released on Jan. 29, 2019, broke days before E3, with Square Enix spreading the word on Twitter over the weekend. So, what would be left for the company's press conference?

Nothing major, evidently. There was no word on Final Fantasy 7 Remake, but there was plenty to be excited about for the Tomb Raider and Just Cause fans among us.

Spotlight - Lara - Croft - Game - Shadow

Most of the spotlight went to Lara Croft. Her new game, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, comes fresh off a 2013 game reboot (and its 2015 sequel) that was highly regarded, and a 2018 movie that was... not.

We got around seven minutes of action in the new trailer. It included the exhilarating opening to the game, and then gameplay footage of Lara Croft murdering people in the jungle.

Daniel - Chayer-Bisson - Game - Director - Eidos

Daniel Chayer-Bisson, a senior game director at Eidos Montreal, promised greater depth in combat and underwater exploration. Lara will become one with the jungle, he says. This is all likely to mean Lara will have more inventive ways to brutally kill unsuspecting enemies.

The game is coming Sep 14, and will be playable on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. (Expect to need a really powerful PC if you want to play this on max settings.)

Weekend - Square - Enix - Kingdom - Hearts

Over the weekend Square Enix made the reveal Kingdom Hearts fans have been waiting for: Kingdom Hearts 3 is coming out on Jan. 29, 2019. A new trailer also showed that the highly-anticipated game would include a Frozen world, taking advantage of arguably Disney's most popular new franchise.

That was all great news, but the bad news is that this meant we got nothing new during Square Enix's press conference. Also absent was Final Fantasy 7 Remake, a game which was unveiled at E3 in 2015.
