Square Enix has confirmed that it will be holding its own storefront later this month, Square Enix Presents. The show itself is slated to run just over 40 minutes and will include the world premiere of a new Life is Strange experience as well as Outriders, Marvel’s Avengers, and more news.
The Square Enix Presents storefront will go live on March 18 at 10:00 a.m. PT and one of the confirmed announcements is a brand new Life is Strange game. While details are reserved for the show, the company tells us that the latest adventure will feature an all-new protagonist with a strange new power.
New Outriders gameplay, a new look at Balan Wonderworld, a celebration for Tomb Raider, more info on Marvel’s Avengers, a Just Cause mobile game, and a few other sprinkled surprises are also confirmed.
I know that a question that will be asked about this show is “where is the news of Final Fantasy VII Remake part II?” While there is the possibility that this could be one of those “miscellaneous” announcements, I would temper any expectation that the team is in a place where they can share more. Is it possible? Absolutely, but nothing from the company shared any points regarding the Part II news. That being said, it’s likely we’ll learn more about Final Fantasy VII Remake: Intergrade for the PS5 version of the game.
The key to fun is measured expectations, right?
Personally, I want to know more about Life is Strange. The first game was a power with Max and Chloé, alongside his suite. Life is Strange 2 also had its own charm, following on from the story of two brothers. The sequel could be anything, but the introduction of a new power is alluring.
