Everything Square Enix announced at its E3 2018 press briefing

Echoes of an Elusive Age saw a new trailer during Square Enix's E3 2018 press conference, showing us more of the title's premise and characters.

The game will launch for both PS4 and PC via Steam in North America and Europe on September 4.

There was very little information on it, other than the implication that it has a pretty complex backstory and what seems to be a tone more similar to Dark Souls than Bayonetta. The teaser was a unusual mixture of live action and in-game graphics, but the central gimmick seems to be that the main character is deaf. We also got a good taste of what's to come with the the localized version of the title on PS4 and PC.

I guess we will find out more in August, though when exactly in August, hasn't been divulged. Platinum Games is best known for games such as Vanquish, NieR: Automata, and the upcoming Granblue Fantasy Project Re:Link. Perhaps we'll see this game at Sony's showcase tonight, or maybe not even until after Shadow of the Tomb Raider is out.

While it is the eleventh mainline entry in the critically acclaimed series, DRAGON QUEST XI is a completely standalone experience that features entirely new characters, a beautifully detailed world, finely tuned turn-based combat, and an immersive story that will appeal to long-time fans and franchise newcomers alike. Final Fantasy XIV and Monster Hunter: World are joining up to make two groups of nerds incredibly happy. Nobody was forcing them to host a press conference, but when you hold one, people naturally have expectations.
