5 Games That Might Be Announced At Sony's E3 Presser
Posted on Saturday, June 1 @ 13:30:00 PST by Alex_Osborn
The Electronic Entertainment Expo is just over a week away. It's hard to believe that in a matter of days an onslaught of gaming news will be upon us, completely overwhelming every gamer out there. On June 10th at 6PM, the spotlight will be on Sony, as the PlayStation manufacturer plans to take the stage and reveal the PS4 in all of its square-shaped plastic glory. More importantly, however, there will be loads of game announcements. As such, here are five potential software reveals we're hoping are part of Sony's presser.
5. Kingdom Hearts III
Sure, there's a slim possibility that Tetsuya Nomura is still working onFinal Fantasy Versus XIII, but let's face it: That game will never come out. I've got this sinking feeling that it has either been scrapped or rolled intoFinal Fantasy XV (which we'll get to in just a bit) so I'm inclined to believe that Nomura and his team at Square are plugging away at the next proper installment in theKingdom Heartsseries. Fans have had to deal with handheld spin-offs for far too long, and with the upcomingHD Collection, there's reason to think thatKH3is at the very least in the early stages of development. Sure, we'll probably get a second high-def collection withKH2and before its release, but that doesn't mean Square has to hold back on the announcement.
4. Jak & Daxter 4
It has been an awfully long time since we've seen a new fully-fledgedJak & Daxtergame thanks to Naughty Dog's success with theUnchartedseries. Seeing as how half of the studio is currently focused onThe Last of Uswhile the rest of the team is almost certainly slaving away atUncharted 4 (which we'll also get to in a bit), perhaps Sony has handed offJakto one of its other fully capable studios.
We know Naughty Dog considered making a fourth entry in the series a little while back to no avail, so maybe some fresh blood could revitalize the classic PS2 platformer. While so many games will undoubtedly chase realism in the next generation, it would be refreshing to have a quality Pixar-style experience.
3. Final Fantasy XV
In February, Square Enix took the stage at Sony's PlayStation 4 reveal and announced that the next installment inFinal Fantasywould be unveiled at E3. Now that the company has sort of got the mess that wasFFXIVfigured out, perhaps we'll see the next proper entry in the long-running JRPG franchise.Final Fantasy XIIIproved to be a major disappointment, and it doesn't look like the direct sequel approach is helping all that much either. What the company really needs to do (besides remakeFinal Fantasy VII) is use the new generation of gaming hardware to reboot theFinal Fantasyfranchise in some way. If the jaw-dropping tech demo they've shown off multiple times is any indication of what is to come, I'm sold.
Nathan Drake has basically become the face of PlayStation. For a while it wasCrash Bandicoot, but after that annoying orange creature faded from relevancy, Sony struggled to find a memorable mascot. The treasure-hunting, smart-mouthed explorer has filled those gargantuan shoes and, as such, will most definitely be making an appearance on Sony's next-gen console sooner rather than later. TheUnchartedgames have proven to be impressive visual showpieces, so what better way to turn heads at E3 than with the reveal ofUncharted 4for the PlayStation 4. Naughty Dog's second team has to be busy with something important...
1. The Last Guardian
WhileThe Last Guardianappears to be in some form of development hell, there's reason to believe its massive delay has everything to due with the impending launch of the PlayStation 4. Sure, aKillzoneandinFamouswill be great for the PlayStation faithful on day one, but can you imagine the level of hype Sony would generate if they announced thatThe Last Guardianwould be a launch title for the PS4? Need I say more?
