See What the Gaming Industry Has in Store for 2019!
June is in full swing, so you know what that means… E3 2019 is here! The Electronic Entertainment Expo is back in Los Angeles and some of the biggest names in video games will attempt to ‘wow’ the industry.
The events began on June 8th and will continue through June 13th. The bloated convention will have more gaming news than you can focus on, so here are our picks for the coolest games coming very soon…
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate: Banjo-Jazooie
One of the more exciting announcements that came from Nintendo was the addition of Banjo-Kazooie to the Smash Ultimate lineup. The beloved character will join a handful of new DLC characters coming soon to the game.
Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order
It’s a big year for Marvel in both movies and games. Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order was announced to have a release date of July 19, 2019. Available exclusively for the Nintendo Switch, this is a welcome addition to the popular series and anyone who misses the mechanics of X-Men Legends.
Square Enix wowed the crowd with amazing in-game footage from their upcoming Marvel’s Avengers game. The characters are rendered beautifully and the action seems to kick off right away. There’s also a potential crossover opportunity with Marvel’s Spider-Man game for the PS4 from 2018! The release date for Marvel’s Avengers is set for May 15, 2020.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order
Fallen Order has a release date set for November 15, 2019 so we don’t have to wait too long to fantasize about wielding the force and slaughtering Stormtroopers with a lightsaber. The game appears to be a mixture of modern RPG’s like the Uncharted series and old Star Wars favorites like Star Wars: Force Unleashed. Check out the badass gameplay below.
Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot
Announced at this year’s Microsoft conference was the project formerly known as Dragon Ball Game: Project Z. Now officially titled Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, this game is yet another take on the beloved anime series. The title is being presented as an “action-RPG” as it won’t just be a fighting game, such as Dragon Ball FighterZ.
Instead, DBZ: Kakarot will allow you to step into Goku’s shoes and navigate through the events of the anime. Between side quests and character interactions, there’ll be much more than just fighting. So far we can see the Saiyan Saga and Frieza Saga will be included, but we’re hoping for the complete DBZ canon to be in the final product! DBZ: Kakarot is set to release in early 2020. Checkout the gameplay footage below.
Destroy All Humans!
Nostalgia wins again with the announcement for a remake of Destroy All Humans! The remake for the 2005 alien invasion classic will see a complete update for the PS4, Xbox One and PC. If you don’t remember, the original saw players terrorize 1950’s Earth. Although there was a story, many of us just enjoyed the mindless destruction with alien weaponry. Destroy All Humans! has a release date set for sometime in 2020.
What games are you looking forward to this year?
