Plus Marvel’s Avengers news and more.
Life is Strange fans will get a glimpse of the series’ next instalment as part of Square Enix’s newly announced spring showcase event, which airs next Thursday, 18th March.
Proceedings get underway at 5pm in the UK/10am PDT, and Square promises 40 minutes of trailers and announcements. The world premiere of Life is Strange 3 (or whatever it ends up being called) is obviously the headliner, but there’s quite a lot more besides.
There’ll be another look at Outriders, for instance, ahead of its launch on 1st April, as well as another airing for Balan Wonderland, which releases a little sooner, on 26th March.
Crystal Dynamics will have some sort of Marvel’s Avengers news – which could be anything from word on new heroes to a release date for Spider-Man’s long-awaited PlayStation-exclusive debut – and Square will also be detailing more of its Tomb Raider 25th anniversary plans.

Rounding out the event are a number of new announcements from sister company Taito, a look at the Just Cause mobile game announced in December last year, as well as information relating to new mobile projects from Square Enix Montreal – the studio behind the largely excellent likes of Hitman Go, Tomb Raider Go, and Deus Ex Go.
