It’s Yumiko, come to impede on Ken’s glorious vengeance!
So, E3 is over, and I still can’t believe how we got three separate feudal Japan samurai action games announcements! Well, okay, technically Ghosts of Tsushima had been previously announced, but that gameplay trailer is incredible. This E3 was definitely the year of the samurai. I’m admittedly bummed all the rumors swirling around the Nintendo Direct didn’t manifest. No Retro Studios Starfox game. No new F-Zero. No Bayonetta 3. Not even info on that Yoshi game. And even though we finally saw the Fire Emblem Switch game, it does not appear to be the incredibly tantalizing but dubious gothic themed FE (although I am still very excited for it).
I did finally pick up Hollow Knight on Switch since it shadow dropped during the Nintendo Direct. I’ve wanted to dive into that particular Metroidvania for what feels like years now, but it seems holding out for the Switch version was the right call. I haven’t gotten much beyond the opening few minutes yet, though, but I have no doubt it’ll be a good time.
Anyway, it was a pretty great E3! And hey, David Hayter is back as Snake, nice!Published on by Alex Kolesar
