Biggest E3 Announcements We Want

Written by: GameGulp Staff

Features | Jun 5, 2018

We know most of what's coming anyway: Kingdom Hearts III, something about Final Fantasy VII Remake, new details on Metroid Prime 4, Avengers... Rumor also has it that Bethesda will start announcing games with far future releases. So maybe we'll get some juicy details on the new installment of The Elder Scrolls, Doom 2, probably Dishonored 3, but Fallout 76 is a sure ball. Of course we'll get some news on major publishers in helping out independent developers about their games (So, technically, they have the support-ish of major labels, can you still call them indie?). We'll also, hopefully, get something out of CD Projekt Red on Cyberpunk 2077. Oh, and there's Microsoft. Who cares. They will probably just announce more studio shutdowns.

And yet, despite the overflowing information of what to expect, we can still hope for a few other Most of the stuff we're going to mention is probably not going to happen. But hey, we can dream, right?

EA cancels the cancelation of the single-player Star Wars game

Before the entire Battlefront II fiasco, EA with Visceral Games-best known for Dead Space-along with Amy Hennig, writer of the first three Uncharted games by Naughty Dog, was meant to develop an action-oriented Star Wars game. It would be like Uncharted, only in space, in a Star Wars universe. All we know about it, is that it takes places sometime during A New Hope. For all we know, behind all of this, the Star Wars game Visceral Games and Amy Hennig envisioned was just like Rogue One and Solo.

Deep Down

Deep Down is a working title by Capcom. It is their clone version of Dark Souls, with some Assassin's Creed tech. Supposedly, you wander around ruins, discover artifacts, where upon interaction would take you to some fantasy realm that is very much like the world of Dark Souls.

Konami surrenders Metal Gear rights to Kojima Productions

No matter where you look at it, Metal Gear is Hideo Kojima's baby. Do we want him to continue making Metal Gear games?

Yes. By now, the only one who can probably touch Metal Gear besides Kojima is, probably David Hayter. Would Kojima want to make more Metal Gear Probably not. But with Konami relinquishing rights to Kojima Productions gives us hope that sometime in the distant future there will be a Metal Gear VI for the grand finale that ends the series right. (Though it should had ended with Guns of the Patriots!)

Mega Man Legends 3

Capcom pulled a really douche move on Keiji Inafune-the main designer, and usually credited as the creator of Mega Man-when they announced Mega Man 11, which looks a lot like the promised Mighty No. 9, developed by Keiji Inafune's own startup team. Now, the team is working on their own version of Mega Man Legends called Red Ash. So it wouldn't be much of a surprise if Capcom decides to pour salt on fresh wounds with the revival of the Mega Man Legends 3 Project. 

Final Fantasy XVI

Final Fantasy gets three games per generation. FFI-III were all released in NES. FFIV-VI, in the SNES. VII-IX, in PSX. X, X-2, and XII, in PS2. XIII, XIII-2, and Lightning Returns, in PS3. So far, the PS4 only has FFXV. If you want to toss in FF Type-0, fine. We're still expecting XVI for the PS4 before the console hits the bucket. And never mind VII-Remake, we all know that's coming out in another 10 years. 

Prince of Persia

We're all set for Ubisoft's big overpromises with their games starting with Beyond Good and Evil 2. They also gave up too easily in the "leaks" of Assassin's Creed Odyssey. Something's not right. Oh, maybe that's because they're going to announce a new Prince of Persia game, which has more legacy from the early gaming years, than AC itself. 

New Super Mario Maker

Nintendo fans are hoping for a New Super Mario Brothers Switch. It's possible that Nintendo will be announcing one alongside the new Smash Bros game and Metroid Prime 4. But what we want most, among everything else, is a New Super Mario Maker. Since Nintendo occasionally adds new original levels in Mario Maker, who's to say that Nintendo won't put the two together for the long run? 

One Punch Man Season 2

It's been three years, damn it!

E3 is about to fire up real soon. What else were you expecting or hoping to be announced? Oh, you might be telling us that we'd forgotten Half-Life 2: Episode 3. Come on, even we gave up on that.
