Earlier this week the team at SaGamer discussed our E3 2017 expectations. With E3 looming over our heads, I thought it would be good to talk about what I’m expecting or rather hoping for out of The Electronic Entertainment Expo 2017.
Beginning tomorrow the 10th of June EA will host their conference and although its not part of the E3 line up specifically I am quite excited to see one game in particular that’s on their roster and that’s Need for Speed Payback. EA revealed and released the games trailer a week ago which can be seen below.
That’s about all I’d like to see from EA to be honest and there after my focus shall shift to Bethesda. If I had to hope for the impossible I would wish for an announcement or news on a new Fallout title but with rumors going around on Bethesda working on a new Wolfenstein and/or a new Evil Within, my dreams on a new Fallout title is just that, but a dream. However there are talks about the show having Fallout 4 VR. Now although Fallout 4 itself is not a new title, to see it in VR and hear more on its mechanics and system through VR will be a treat for me.
Following Bethesda are the Ubisoft and PlayStation conferences. With Ubisoft I am actually quite interested to see more on Assassins Creed Origins where as PlayStation probably has the most hype going for it throughout the world (disclaimer my hype train will be leaving the station last in the form of Nintendo) although there are two titles in specific that I was intrigued to see and that is The Last of Us 2 and Death Stranding (sadly I think Kojima advised that this might not be at the show).
With the rest of the shows out the way specific to my interests I shall now dive into what is probably going to make my E3 and that is the Nintendo portion of E3.
Nintendo last year hosted one hell of a show for me. Although they didn’t really have much on their show floor, the Breath of the Wild set-up was incredible. I remember watching their Treehouse live segments every chance that I could. And this year I doubt that this will change. There are so many titles that I’m interested in seeing from Nintendo this year at E3 that I’ve decided to rather list them below instead of talking about each one. As talking about each one might keep you here the entire evening.
– Pokémon Ultra Sun & Moon (I have so much to say about this after the Nintendo Pokémon Direct the other day but I shall keep my head up high and wait on Nintendo to show more at E3 2017)
– Super Mario Odyssey (Next to Breath of the Wild anyone that owns a Switch cannot say that they aren’t waiting on this!)
– Fire Emblem (2018’s release for the Nintendo Switch)
– Monster Hunter XX (Nintendo Switch)
– Project Octopath Traveler
– Mario and Rabbids Kingdom (I assume this will be showed off with Nintendo but Ubisoft might do the honors)
– Xenoblade 2
– Ever Oasis
When it comes to Nintendo I have quite high expectations unfortunately. Even more so, a wish for an announcement on a new piece of hardware…The Super Nintendo Entertainment System Classic.
Tell me what are you hoping for from all the announcements soon to grace us from E3 2017?
