Another year, another E3 conference has closed and with it we recap on the games we saw teased, the trailers that gave us goosebumps and most importantly of all, Mario Dinosaurs!
Kicking off with Sony’s conference, the biggest standouts from it were the new Spiderman game by Insomniac, which looked technically and visually awesome and God of War game-play, which seems to have confirmed that it will have a Norse mythology setting. Sony did not reveal anything new in terms of hardware but did do a showcase on VR. There was also Sony PlayLink, which is a collection of phone controlled games.
Ubisoft hit us all with a surprising team up, when we saw Shigeru Miyamoto come on stage. Mario and Rabbids all in one place? It’s not that surprising a team up of kid friendly characters to be honest but it was still quite fun to see Miyamoto on stage, that man always evokes utter joy in video games.
Ubisoft kept the ball rolling with games we knew, such as Far Cry 5 and Assassins Creed: Origins (which we’re still calling Knifey Camels) and a couple that might have been a lovely shock for some, like Beyond Good and Evil 2.
We think it’s safe to say the happiest moment of E3 was the entire Nintendo conference. That Super Mario Odyssey Trailer was so amazing and so many mustaches!! You’ll travel across various kingdoms beyond the Mushroom Kingdom, via a hat-shaped ship named “Odyssey”. A core feature of the game is Mario’s ability to throw his cap, known as Cappy, which is used in various ways, such as for attacking enemies, using it to temporary possess them and take control, and activate objects. This game looks like it will be bringing out those Mario 64 and Sunshine good time feels.
Other big titles that Nintendo announced were:
Metroid Prime 4, Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild DLC’s, Rocket League (going to be great for eSport events) and at some point, sometime soon, if we’re patient a whole new Pokémon game!
