Sorry to be tardy to the party but I just realized we never did a roundup for the non-E3 non-Sony console mid-year showcases. Thankfully, the only important game shown that we would have included, but has since seen a release, seems to have been Pikmin 4. But now that we've at least mentioned that one, we can get on with the rest. Continue on after the break for a look at some of the highlights from both Microsoft and Nintendo.
Last week, Sony released their (semi) annual PlayStation Showcase video in order to highlight some of the exciting titles that will be coming out in the near future. The trailer compilation was surprisingly lengthy and featured several noteworthy titles, both anticipated and unanticipated. Continue on after the break for a look at some of the standouts.
Not so long ago, in this very same galaxy, Respawn Entertainment created a fantastic original entry to the beloved sci-fi franchise called Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order. The game was definitely something special and you may recall that I even saw fit to include it in the list of my 6 Favorite Star Wars Games of all time. Well apparently I wasn't the only one who loved it, because they've just officially announced the sequel and dropped a pretty strong trailer to boot!
Star Wars: Jedi - Survivor will continue the adventures of Cal Kestis as he is pursued across the galaxy by the deadly Imperial Inquisitors. As of right now, all we know is that the title will be released sometime next year (presumably for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X). I don't know about you but I can only feel my desire for this game increasing by this most welcome news.
Feel free to check out the trailer after the break and...may the force be with you.
Let's kick shell! Konami has great news for all you '90s Turtles fans out there! They just recently announced that they will be releasing all the hit titles from the Nintendo Entertainment System, Super Nintendo, Game Boy, and Sega Genesis in one righteous package! The appropriately named Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Cowabunga Collection will be releasing sometime later this year for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One and Series X, and Steam.
For more information, you can visit the official website for the game, here, or you can watch the totally radical reveal trailer that I've posted after the break.
Sorry for the delay in posting the usual June E3 news but we (like so many others) were waiting on Sony to get with the program and give the fans at least some idea of what they can expect to get excited about over the next year or two. Well, a year later Covid-19 still wouldn't take a hint and kindly flock off so this year's E3 event still wasn't the typical show everyone is used to. It was back, though, online only and rebranded as the "Electronic Entertainment Experience", but we'll always take some kind of a show over no show at all.
Microsoft and Bethesda got things going with their first E3 press conference as one singular industry titan. Followed shortly after by Nintendo, who did their now-standard E3 Nintendo Direct presentation. Sony, however, decided it was too cool for school, skipped E3 altogether and waited till just this month to hold their own upcoming releases showcase. But now that we've heard from all 3 players, we can finally round up the highlights for you.
Well, our Best Games of 2020 list is done now so it's time to move ahead to 2021. There's a lot to look forward to over the next 11 months (provided the release dates hold). All in all, it's looking to be another solid year for gaming. Read on for a list of 12 selected highlights that you should be able to play before the year's end.
Now that our Games of the Year list is behind us, we can start looking forward to this year. There are a lot of exciting new offerings on the horizon for 2020, some of which will begin releasing fairly soon. A few upcoming titles, however, have already been delayed and may, perhaps be delayed further. But regardless of when they all arrive, this should still certainly be a very entertaining year. As fits the theme of this whole site (in case you hadn't caught on yet), we've decided to lay out the top 12 highlights, along with the most current release information we have. Enjoy.
Sega fanatics unite! The day you have long been waiting for has finally arrived - a new Streets of Rage title has been announced! This wholly unexpected, yet incredible revelation comes courtesy of Lizardcube (in partnership with DotEmu), the fantastic studio that recently brought you that amazing remake of Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap. This latest installment appears to feature returning stars, Axel and Blaze. Not much else has been revealed as of yet, least of all who the composer will be, but here's hoping Yuzo Koshiro happens to be available.
For more on Streets of Rage 4, you can visit the game's official website that recently went live, or you can get hyped further by watching the pretty rad reveal trailer, after the break.
Street Fighter fans rejoice! At long last, Capcom has announced the Street Fighter collection that some fans have literally been waiting decades for. The Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection will encompass every single official, main-series arcade iteration of Street Fighter (excluding the IV and V games). That's all three installments of Street Fighter Alpha, all three installments of Street Fighter III, all five versions of Street Fighter II, and the lonely single version of Street Fighter (1). 12 games representing the first 12 years of Street Fighter! A very satisfying collection for any Street Fighter enthusiast.
Additionally, Capcom will offer full online play for 4 of those titles: Street Fighter II: Hyper Fighting, Super Street Fighter II: Turbo, Street Fighter Alpha 3, and Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike. That's particularly exciting news as this is the first time that any Street Fighter Alpha game will be made playable online (outside of Japan). Furthermore, the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection will be coming to all current systems, including PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch! Prepare to strike, upon the game's arrival in May 2018. You can check out the official announcement trailer after the break.
