I can't believe it's already that time of year again. With E3 quickly approaching, I think now would be the appropriate time to throw out some predictions. Feel free to laugh at me if I end up being wrong!
We're definitely going to get some news on the Resident Evil 2 remake, I'm calling it right now! This project was announced in 2015 and I think some new information is overdue, whether that be a trailer or a release date.
Capcom earned back my goodwill after the success of Resident Evil 7, so a well-crafted remake of one of my favorite games would have me fully onboard the Capcom train. Rumor has it that the game will run in the RE7 engine....interesting.
Next up, the next game from developer FromSoftware will be officially announced. During 2017's Game Awards, FromSoftware dropped a teaser trailer for their next game. The teaser was only 33 seconds long and featured the following screens:
Most people are hoping for "Shadows Die Twice" to be a sequel to 2015's Bloodborne. I would love this to be the case seeing as I ADORE Bloodborne, but I highly doubt it. I initially thought it would be a continuation of the "Tenchu" series, but recent leaks have thrown me off completely. Click here if you want to check out the leaked info, just remember to take it with a grain of salt.
My final prediction is just me exercising wishful thinking. I'm hoping that a remaster/remake of the Xenosaga trilogy is in the works. Unfortunately, I missed out on the Xenosaga series as a kid and I've been dying to play it for years now. My computer can't handle heavy duty emulation and tracking down physical copies of the games can be rather pricey, so a remaster is my only hope.
Luckily it seems my prayers may finally be answered! It was recently discovered that Bandai Namco (the publishers of the series) has a new trademark named "Also Sprach Zarathustra". The reason this gives me hope is that "Also Sprach Zarathustra" is the subtitle to one of the games. It'd be weird of Bandai Namco to have trademarked this phrase if they didn't have something Xenosaga related in the works. I really hope I'm right.
So what do you all think of my predictions? Am I on the money or am I full of BS? I guess we'll all find out when E3 officially starts on June 12th!
