Nintendo is once again passing on having a whole big, flashy press conference and sticking with having a big, flashy, old fashioned Nintendo Direct E3 special. If it’s anything like last year, I’m all for it.
The event is scheduled to go live on Nintendo’s Twitch channel at 12:00 ET. Tune in here!
Ever since that announcement was made last night at Sony’s press conference, fans of the series went clamoring to the Kickstarter website to “Save Shenmue.” Apparently the Kickstarter website even had some problems processing all of the backers for Shenmue 3. The game has already met it’s goal as of this morning and it now becomes the fastest game to raise $2 million. Matter of fact it only took just 9 hours and the project still has 31 days left on Kickstarter.
It’ll be interesting to see if any stretch goals are created to raise even more money. I think it would be neat to include Shenmue 1 and 2 along with 3 all for the PlayStation 4. That would be the ultimate gift for any Shenmue fan. Another neat idea would be a special edition Dreamcast controller that works on PS4. That’s just wishful thinking though.
There is no release date for Shenmue 3 just yet, but the Kickstarter page has everything listed to be shipped by December 2017.
You can go back the game here!
That’s pretty much it. I mean what else is there to be said?
Unless you’ve been living under a rock in the last 24hrs, there were rumors that a FF7 remake was going to be announced by Sony. The lie detector determined that was true and Square says we get the game in 2017. Everybody rejoice! Take a look at the trailer below.
It’s only been one day into E3 and I already give E3 2015 an A+.
We should see more on the next Battlefront, Mass Effect, Mirrors Edge, sports games and more. It’s scheduled to start at 3pm ET.
It features free play guitar solos too. Now the drummer and guitarist can compete for best solo performance. Check out the behind the scenes look below.
Rockband will be on PS4 and Xbox One and you can use your old instruments from the last gen game.
Update: Platinum Games is the developer for Transformers: Devestation. The game is listed to appear on Playstation 3 and 4, and Xbox 360 and One.
Original Story: PureXbox.com has soom exclusive information on the new title as well as some screenshots.
The new Activision game is to be called Transformers: Devastation and is beautifully cell-shaded. It definitely looks like the old school Transformers cartoon. Pure Xbox’s sources report that the game will be on the Xbox 360, which is kind of weird considering we are in the next generation of consoles now. We can only assume that it will also appear on Xbox One and hopefully on PS4 and maybe PS3 as well.
There is also no report of a developer for the title. Pure Xbox points suggests that this could be Platinum’s secret project. They did just work with Activions for the Legend of Korra game. I, for one, would love to see Platinum be the developer behind this. Hopefully this will be better than what Korra was though.
We will know more when E3 starts. Check out more screenshots over at Pure Xbox
The E3 YouTube page gave us a preview video featuring it’s host Geoff Keighley. The event starts June 14th. Check out the video below.
