EZA E3 2017 Predictions

  • With E3 upon us I thought it would be fun to predict the 6 conferences of E3 2017, hope you guys enjoy it.

  • Pikmin 4 and Metroid Prime 4 with a confirmed 2017 Xenoblade 2 release date or GTFO Nintendo!

  • Also I think they will host a Splatoon 2 tournament.

  • I'll echo Pikmin 4. I also think that with a region free console Nintendo is more aware in doing timely localizations and that Xenoblade 2 has a shot of coming out in December. Mario Odyssey feels like the biggest thing they have and it will probably close the show. I think it is too early to show anything from FE Switch, specially since we have FE Warriors to fill the Fire Emblem slot too.

    I want to throw one unusual idea, I think online Virtual console games are a big deal for them, and they'll have a segment dedicated to it, announcing the first games that will release with the function, and saying which ones you'll be getting with your subscription when the service releases.

    And for my final bet, I guess that Retro's new game is a new Kid Icarus. I feel like Uprising was enough of a success that Nintendo wants to continue exploring it, and I don't think Sakurai would be free to handle new games, so I believe giving it to Retro is a good idea.

  • Project giant robot has gone quiet, and sakurai bough a mecha toy for "research"
    I wonder if we are getting a sweet new AAA mech game :)

  • @joferjoe already confirmed cancelled by Nintendo

  • @Yoshi While Project Giant Robot was canceled, I wonder if Sakurai is really working on a mech or "Custom Robo" like game (although I don't think they would actually use the Custom Robo IP)

  • @Yoshi :(

  • Bethesda

  • Turrican HD collection finally emerges. The last official game in this series was released in 1995, it's about time we get it back. (I'm not counting the 2008 Virtual console releases for the two last titles...)

  • Banned

    @LinkJr I'll buy a Switch the INSTANT a new Custom Robo is announced.

  • @DMCMaster You realize that is actually too much, yeah? Bethesda's namesake studio will only have one new IP and the other big game will be The Evil Within: Reckoning or whatever. It seems too soon for another Doom, but Quake, some new app, Elder Scrolls: Legends, and Fallout 4 VR will probably be there. Arkane will have just released two games, so we won't hear from them for probably two years.

    The same goes for Team Gravity.

    Nintendo will definitely only announce one Retro game at most since they trickle stuff out through directs. I think they have to have a big showing including the Zelda DLC and some at least tease at Metroid or people will get mad. And of course Beyond Good and Evil 2 and Mario / Rabbids RPG will be there if they exist at all. It definitely seems like a good time for Smash Bros. Deluxe, but large companies don't risk confusing consumers with overlapping marketing cycles for games in the same series like that. That SMT game won't surface again until relatively when Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE did during the Wii U's lifespan. The virtual console and Mother 3 might happen though. Who knows, who cares?

    And one would think that EA would finally show up with Star Wars, but we thought the same of them last year.

  • Optimistic bets and negatives ones too

    • Resident Evil REmake 2 with a trailer not unlike the FF7 Remake trailer.
    • Bloodborne 2 shadow drop and release (I'm with Ian on this despite how irrational and unrealistic)
    • The Evil Within 2 - new engine, expanded team
    • God of War.... underwhelms us!
    • Crackdown 3 is MIA
    • Microsoft reveals it has an old IP
    • Sony brings back a stagnant IP

  • SMT or Persona x Yakuza crossover game
    Valkyria Chronicles 4
    Ridge Racer type 4 remake
    Soul Calibur 6
    Armored Core 6/reboot/spinoff thing that's the AC equivalent of what Bloodborne is to Souls
    Devil May Cry 5
    Golden Sun: Eternal Eclipse

    ok so that's more wishes than predictions but I think at least ONE of those should happen!

  • Sony

    * Evil Within 2 kicks off Bethesda's E3 Show

    * Amy Hennig game ends EA conference with a In-Engine Trailer
    * Need For Speed Underground 3


    • Virtual Console gets a September release date
    • Metroid starts off Nintendo
    • Mario Odyssey ends the show

    * Scorpio reveal kicks off the show then Crackdown 3 running on Scorpio
    * Cuphead is shown again and shadow dropped
    * Gwent is also shadow dropped
    * Sea of Thieves August date and State of Decay gets a October Date


    • Prince of Persia teaser
    • Assassin's Creed Egypt surprises everyone
    • Ubiart game gets a 2017 release date

    Bonus guess, I'm going to predict the first party games of Sony shown at E3

    Days Gone
    Death Stranding

    Sucker Punch (Writing this list I can see this getting pushed to PSX seeing how stacked Sony is)
    Detroit: Become Human (I can see this game getting a focus on the twitch stream during E3)
    Dreams ( I also see this game getting a focust on the twitch stream during E3)
    Knack 2 (I also see this game getting a focust on the twitch stream during E3 out this year)
    GT Sport (I also see this game getting a focust on the twitch stream during E3 out this year)

    Everything else montage plus E3 PS Twitch

    I hope studios come forward saying if they will be at E3 or not.

  • Fromsoft's next project to be revealed (most likely armored core reboot,may be a TGS announcement though)

    Shenmue/Dreamcraft collection.

    Final Fantasy 7 Demo will be shown included with first run of zodiac age.

    Spyro HD collection.

    Kingdom Hearts 3 gameplay with march 2018 release date. (switch reveal?)

    Virtual Console will launch directly after show will have 6 games available (Mother 3 and Radiant Path/Dawn will be among them maybe Melee)

    Retro's new project is a open world f-zero similar to old need for speeds

    Mario Odyssey gets a October release date

    Xenoblade gets a DEC/Jan world wide date.

  • @ib0show calling it now, you crushed it.

  • @naltmank Every year I think I make good predictions but I usually get only half at best correct

  • Shawn Layden will be even somber-er than his last few shows despite the fact that — god willing — 50 people didn't die in a club less than a day before this one.

    Sony at large will transition from a pit orchestra to a three hour-long silent black and white film (also with a pit orchestra) about Crash and Kratos' loveless marriage.

  • @ib0show said in EZA E3 2017 Predictions:

    Assassin's Creed Egypt surprises everyone

    ...by mostly being set in outer space! Secret Stargate game confirmed!
