[E3 2018] – Predictions

E3 2018 Predictions


E3 is always an exciting time of the year. It’s Christmas for gamers essentially. As anybody who knows me will attest to, I’m the biggest Nintendo fan boy in whatever circle I’m operating in. For that reason, having endured some very barren years during the Wii U era, I am beyond excited for this years show. With the Switch being a run away success, I’m envisioning an absolute plethora of games being shown:

However, today, I’m just going to talk about three of them.
Absolute certainty
I think, without any shadow of a doubt, we will see a solid trailer for Metroid Prime IV, along with a very vague release window. Although they gave absolutely nothing away when they announced it at last years show, the fact that Bandai Namco has been confirmed as the developer shows that there is a concept in place that Nintendo are happy with and I can only assume, in the year that has passed, the game is really starting to take shape.
Alongside it’s announcement I can also see an HD remake trilogy being shown off, with a release date this year.
Possible reveal
I think it’s about time we saw what Miyamoto-san has been doing with Pikmin 4.
By the time E3 rolls around, it will have been 3 years since Nintendo’s Creative Fellow announced that development was very close to being finished.
Pikmin 3 was one of the highlights of the ill fated Wii U, oozing in charm and sporting stunning visuals that still stand up to this day. Show me a better looking piece of HD fruit.
Go on, I dare you!!!
Unlikely to happen
Ever since the inception of the Wii U, and Nintendo’s foray into the world of HD video games, I have wanted a new F-Zero more than nearly anything on God’s green earth. At this point, I’d happily take an HD remake of the quite excellent F-Zero GX from the days of the GameCube. However, I think, what with these persistent rumours that Retro Studios are working on a futuristic racer set in the Star Fox universe, one of my most beloved franchises might just be dead.
The king is dead, long live the king.
