Update: After further research, Spider-Man and MvC: Infinite are not “confirmed” for the show. However, I have no doubt that these titles will be shown off.
With 2017’s E3 just around the corner, I’ve decided to take a look at my five most anticipated games confirmed for the show. Since I’ll be attending the Expo this year, I expect the majority of these games to be playable. When the show rolls around, I’ll be sure to give my thoughts and impressions on these games’ demos.
Red Dead Redemption 2
The first Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer underwhelmed me, as it was lacking in real gameplay and concrete information. However, E3 will likely bring us a slew of gameplay and info about the game. I loved the original Red Dead Redemption, and can’t wait for the sequel.
Although Sony hasn’t showed much, if any, of this game yet, it’s impossible for me not to get excited. Spider-Man is my favorite comic book character, and the fact that we’re getting a new open world game with modern technology is incredibly exciting. Given that Insomniac games, the brilliant team behind Ratchet and Clank is working on Spider-Man, it will surely be a solid title.
Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite
Marvel Vs. Capcom has a special place in my heart. I’ve played the original arcade title since I was five years old, and that interest was rejuvenated with MvC 3 on Xbox 360. Now, we’re getting a full HD title that looks amazing.
Splatoon was my favorite game of last generation, and Splatoon 2 looks better in virtually every way. Given that Nintendo Switch is a success so far, this game will be more polished than the first. Considering that the title comes out the month after E3, I expect a lot of details about this one.
Super Mario Odyssey
If you’ve followed my gaming writing for any amount of time you probably aren’t surprised by this. But yes, my most anticipated title is none other than Super Mario Odyssey. Akin to 64 and Sunshine, Odyssey looked absolutely incredible based on its first trailer. Nintendo knows the interest that sanbox, 3D Mario games get, and I fully expect them to show it off in detail at E3
