Square Enix Announces Nintendo Direct-Style Digital Showcase
Square Enix has announced a Nintendo Direct-style digital showcase, Square Enix Presents, which is set to reveal new games, like a new Life Is Strange, and give updates on existing ones like Marvel’s Avengers and the upcoming Outriders.
Square Enix Presents will be the first in a new series of digital showcases for Square, with the inaugural installment airing on March 18 at 10 am PT/1 pm ET on Square Enix’s Twitch and YouTube. The full lineup includes:
- A reveal of the next Life Is Strange series game
“The ongoing celebration for the 25th anniversary of Tomb Raider”
Just Cause Mobile
“New mobile game announcements from the award-winning Square Enix Montréal studio”
“A look at a few of the whimsical games from Square Enix sister company Taito”

Not much is known about the new Life Is Strange, but the Square Enix presentation will air on the same day Marvel’s Avengers’ new Hawkeye content, as well as the PS5 and Xbox Series versions, launch. Since the announcement of that new content, though, Avengers also announced a change to its XP Progression that has left some fans concerned about what it means for the game’s grind.
The presentation hits just a couple of weeks before Outriders’ launch, which has recently seen a well-received demo. Just Cause Mobile was revealed in a Game Awards announcement last December, while Balan Wonderworld had a demo released earlier this year and is set to launch on March 26.
