June is here and the most anticipated video game events of the year are here. After a 2020 break due to the global pandemic we still face, E3 2021 returns with a healthy dose of confirmed companies, games pending to be announced and well kept surprises. On this occasion we are meeting virtually to talk about the Square Enix conference, one of the most important companies in the sector that brings together a wide range of works that we hope to hear about news.
Upon confirmation of the Date and Time exact moment in which it will kick off, it is time for reflection to review the current situation of the Japanese firm and thus find out which games will have prominence during its conference. Caliber names of Final Fantasy y Tomb Raider they ring in the air but will they finally appear at E3 2021?

Square Enix conference date and time
- Date: June 13th
- Schedule: 21: 15h (CEST, Spanish peninsular time)
- Duration (approximate): 40 minutes.
What we expect and know from the Square Enix conference
What is clear to us before the Square Enix conference kicks off is that a world premiere of the upcoming Eidos Montreal will be revealed, something that for now remains a mystery. In the official tweet in which the company has announced the first details of the conference, three main titles are mentioned: Babylon’s Fall (PlatinumGames), Life is Strange: True Colors y Marvel’s Avengers. We hope that each of them will have their own space during the event, although the 40 minutes of approximate total duration that have been indicated will give much more than that.
New in Marvel’s Avengers, Life is Strange: True Colors and more
We go step by step. To begin with, from Marvel’s Avengers We hope that new details of the Black Panther expansion will be presented, which will initially arrive this year 2021. In March, Crystal Dynamics shared its roadmap with the superhero game, so we can expect to see news announced beyond the great expansion of “War for Wakanda”.
Another title that will surely have a leading role is the new installment of the saga Life is Strange: True Colors. In the past Square Enix Presents was revealed its release date, September 10, 2021, plus some gameplay. We hope that even more video content and details of Alex Chen’s story will be revealed this time.
Final Fantasy XVI and the new Tomb Raider
Finally, it is time to talk about dreams and illusions. There is much of the first and some of the second; of what we have confirmation but that everything indicates that there are still many months or years to see the light. In the case of Final Fantasy XVI, We already know some details and we know that its target platform will be PS5, but we are also hopeful that much more will be revealed during the conference.
As for the new Tomb Raider, if we take into account that the saga turns 25 this 2021 and that there are already some indications that the Lara Croft’s next adventure is being forged, it is logical to think that during the Square Enix conference we will see something about it. Be that as it may, we will clear up doubts as of June 13 and we will be able to discover the future of the Japanese company’s games in an event that is really promising.
