FFoP E3 Predicitions

June 3rd, 2014 -

A-crystal-ball-008

It’s that time of the year again when we put on our Nostradamus hats and attempt to predict the events of this year’s E3 Press Conferences. Will Final Fantasy VII finally get announced? Will Microsoft reverse the reversal from last year? Will Nintendo kiss and make up with EA? Who knows? We knows, or at least we think that we knows.

Ryan

  • Final Fantasy VII (because, why not?)
  • F-Zero Wii U
  • The Xbox One officially becomes the Xbox 180º (all 2013 system announcements get flipped)
  • Sony plays it safe, teases new things, but only shows stuff we’ve already seen.
  • Some kind of Street Fighter announcement at Sony’s Conference.
  • Criterion announces a new Burnout game for next gen at EA.
  • Star Wars 1313 is shown, back in production at a new studio.
  • Ubisoft has nothing like Watch Dogs and The Division this year.
  • Assassins Creed Unity PS4 bundle for holiday 2014.
  • New 3D Mario game like Galaxy in 2015.

Jason

  • No FFXV, as in it won’t even be at E3 – delayed
  • Persona 5 footage (hopefully at Sony when they do the inevitable “still developing for PS3″ bit.)
  • New Borderlands will be shown off
  • Phil Spencer blows his M$ load
  • Nintendo announces X is Xenogears 2
  • Bonus: Capcom does something with my beloved Mega Man or Breath of Fire

Jonny

  • Fallout 4 announcement?
  • Doom 4 (Doom) gameplay footage
  • Star Wars Battlefront gameplay footage
  • Mortal Kombat announcement?

Brian

  • MS shows crazy amounts of games and doesn’t talk about the console at all / Sony talks about the power of the PS4 hardware, subtle dig at MS
  • Beyond Good and Evil 2 – X1 exclusive, with footage
  • Halo 1-4 collection or H2 Anniversary –  Nov 2014.
  • Fantasia pushed hard.
  • Zelda Wii U & Metroid Prime U
  • Eternal Darkness sequel
  • MKX shown off
  • Something RARE from MS
  • Uncharted 4 teased
  • The Last Guardian – PS4 2015
  • (Bonus) Chrono Trigger 2

Chris

  • Final Fantasy XV will be given a world wide launch date of September 30th 2014, but will ultimately be delayed until March 2015.
  • Kingdom Hearts III will be given a launch window of Fall 2015.
  • Kingdom Hearts II.5 HD ReMix will be out this fall and cost $60, but will now also include Dream, Drop, Distance in HD as a playable title.
  • Both Kingdom Hearts HD ReMixes will be announced for PS4 and X1, one to collect all the games on 1 system, two to give Xbox owners the chance to catch up on story for III.
  • Halo 1-4 Remaster for X1 will become official and remasters of Reach and ODST will follow it in a different collection.
  • Majora’s Mask will be announced for 3DS and be out this Fall, this will be a title for those who are waiting for Zelda U.
  • Zelda U will be shown off more, a title will be giving, but won’t be out until Fall 2015.
  • God of War IV will be announced, will feature a different main protagonist and different set of gods (Roman or Egyptian).
  • EA will show off Star Wars 1313, made by Visceral.
  • Ubisoft will continue its Watch Dogs and The Division-esque paranoia promos for a new game and blow us all away again.
  • Assassin’s Creed Comet will become official and be out for current and last gen systems this Fall, except for Wii U, because they don’t care anymore.
  • Nintendo will tease new hardware to get everyone talking, allude to Fusion system, integrated ecosystem with gaming.
  • That Pokémon Delta Emerald trademark will be confirmed and Nintendo will launch it alongside Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire this Nov. 3 Pokémon games! Crazy!

Check back after E3 to see how we did! I suspect some of us will do better than others…
