So you’re pumped about E32011 eh? You think it’s going to be the mother of all of gaming expos and will unveil some of your favorite games. You’re officially gung ho about Uncharted 3, and the latest Battlefield 3 gameplay trailer has left you salivating, thirsty for more. It’s really bad, that’s how good it is. You’re also thinking of Modern Warfare 3 ever since that teaser was released, however you’re most excited for XCOM and Kingdoms. Yet although all the aforementioned games will surely light up the event, it’s the unexpected showings that will truly steal the show.
Find out the potential megaton announcements below the break.
Rockstar’s said it won’t be attending E3 this year because it has nothing to show. However the developer’s been hard at work on a Sony exclusive for about two years, and they’ve yet to reveal anything. Could it be a true surprise reveal will happen at this year’s E3? I’m betting yes. Rockstar’s one to put on a show and Sony needs to drop many bombs. An Agent announcement would send the place certifiable. Don’t say we didn’t tell you.
Metal Gear Solid 5
Kojima said Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of The Patriots would be Snake’s last adventure, but the man’s telling a half-life. We know Metal Gear Solid: Rising is somewhat a spin-off and is not counted as a “true” sequel. So what about Metal Gear Solid 5, will it ever happen? Of course it will. Kojima said the last game was Snake’s last title – but which “Snake” was he talking about? And there are rumors running rampant claiming he’ll reveal the sixth true installment next month!
He also said “maybe I’ll do Metal Gear Solid 5“. Look out for Sony’s presser.
Sony’s been giving life to some of its old franchises recently, and last year David Jaffe’s Twisted Metal was unveiled at E3. So don’t go losing your mind if and when Sony brings Syphon Filter to life at the show. It’s one of the platform holder’s greatest franchises, and its yet to see a remake or revamp happen.
Like one of GT’s user said, “I can literally taste a new Onimusha coming soon”, and he’s right. In fact, Street Fighter producer Yoshinori Ono said, now “feels right” to bring back the series. Telling IGN “It feels like it’s the time to resurrect that series.” “But I wouldn’t want to do the things we’ve done before. I think it might be time to progress beyond the standard single-player adventure.”
Well whatever it is, expect Capcom to make a splash at E3, not with Tekken X Capcom or whatever, because we already know those titles will be present. Expect Onimusha 5!
Tons of other big things happening at the show, including new hardware unveiling and lost more. But for me it’s about the game, and the games we just listed should bring down the house.
