PAX West (also known to some as PAX Prime) is set to take place in Seattle in just a few days' time. And Square Enix is more than ready for the show, not only bringing Dragon Quest XI and Shadow of the Tomb Raider before their releases, but also the long-awaited Kingdom Hearts III.

The company revealed its plans for the show this week, including bringing legendary Dragon Quest creator Yuji Horii to talk with the fans and take part in photo sessions on Saturday, September 1.

If it's games that you're after, the publisher has them in spades, including playable versions of Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age, Kingdom Hearts III, Life Is Strange 2, The Quiet Man and Shadow of the Tomb Raider.

There will also be giveaways, including a limited edition Shadow of the Tomb Raider Xbox One X console that will tie in with an Instagram relic hunt, along with Just Cause 4 merchandise, Dragon Quest XI posters and t-shirts, and so much more.

There will also be a number of panels to learn more about your favorite games, including Life Is Strange 2 and Shadow of the Tomb Raider. There's also a Life is Strange 2 party hosted by the What's Good Games ladies, if you're interested.

Join key members of the JUST CAUSE 4 development team - Avalanche Studios - as they talk exclusively about the next game in the hugely popular, multi-million selling JUST CAUSE series.

Rico Rodriguez returns in JUST CAUSE 4 with his trademark parachute, wingsuit and, of course his grappling hook, now enhanced with new functionality and fully customisable, making it the most powerful and creative tool the player has ever had.

SHADOW OF THE TOMB RAIDER - Uncovering the Hidden City of Paititi

Time: 4:30 PM

Shadow of the Tomb Raider is filled with many surprises and secrets. Perhaps the biggest discovery Lara Croft will make is the hidden city of Paititi, a civilization untouched by modern culture and the largest hub ever created in a Tomb Raider game.

The panel will feature Dan Chayer-Bisson (Game Director), Mario Chabtini (Senior Producer), and Rich Briggs (Senior Brand Director).
