So…the time has come upon us once again! We’re a little over a month away at this point and there will be more information pouring over the next few weeks so all aboard!
Date: E3 will officially be going on from June 13th to June 15th this year. Of course this doesn’t include what any other conferences that may happen before these days. Dates for conferences and events will be placed below.
Discord chat for this year is updated courtesy of Rockbogart!
Rumor Mill(on going progress up until the end of the conferences)
Mother 3 western release?:
This rumor has been going on for quite some time now. Each timewe think it’s coming it’s been disappointing. Latest rumor is that it’s heading to Switch and of course Reggie is always trying to avoid directly the answering the question whenever it comes up so maybe this year?
Interestingly enough this most recent rumor comes from Laura Kate who has been correct on a few rumors regarding the Switch.
Rabbids X Mario RPG game
Who in the heck asked for this? Lol When the rumor about this game popped up it was way out of left field and when the Switch was released nothing else was heard about it…but then the rumor popped up again recently this time from Kotaku
This rumor first started out from Laura Kate and now Kotaku is saying they got art assets of the game and it supposedly uses the Snowdrop engine. It’s only the 2nd time this game has popped up but chances are if this is a thing it will definitely show up this year.
Edit: All we need is confirmation at this point. http://www.siliconera.com/2017/05/24/mario-rabbids-crossover-revealed-switch-latest-leak/
Devil May Cry 5:
Yeah this rumor is STILL going…
It’s not just the fact that though at this point…
With Itsuno stating that he’s working on a new project many fans are hoping that it’s DMC5
It’s also very possible that the game Itsuno is working on is a sequel to Dragon’s Dogma…but it’s very interesting that Johnny and and Langdon were doing work so long ago and we still have no idea for what it was for and that was a year ago.
Ninja Gaiden 4:
This has been floating around for a minute as well…Confirmed to be in development by Team Ninja and then complete silence on it
They’ve said that Nioh is the gateway towards Ninja Gaiden so since Nioh got released this year it’s a bit doubtful we’ll see much of anything on this project. But a little tease could be possible.
2 unknown Bethesda projects
They sent out an E3 invite this year that has 2 areas on it that state ‘under construction’. Interestingly enough supposedly last year they were supposed to announce a new Wolfenstein game according to rumors but that didn’t happen…then there’s also the rumors floating around about Evil Within 2.
Retro Studios new game
It’s been 3 years since the release of Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze and the dev has been pretty silent. There was that rumor from Laura Kate a while back stating that the game their working on isn’t Metroid or Donkey Kong. Could be interesting…
Interestingly enough though Laura has stated that she’s heard that a new Metroid is in dev though…
People been bugging about it for a minute and Federation Force well…In any case Nintendo stated before that they have plans for 2D and 3D so it’s probably not a matter of if but when at this point.
Next Assassin's Creed game could show up this year, potentially set in Egypt
Ubisoft actually decided they were going to take a break to improve the quality of the franchise after Syndicate. Most of the rumors seem to point that the new game is coming out this year.
Pokemon on the Switch:
Believe this is another rumor that started from Laura Kate
Things don't seem to be looking up for this rumor at the moment since there hasn't been much else about it and not to mention the fact that as of me typing this a Pokemon just happened and they announced Pokken for Switch, Pokemon Gold and Silver for 3ds VC and Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon for 3ds. Apparently though there was 4 chan rumor that was fairly spot on that happened 2 months before this Direct:
As always though..rumors are rumors until officially announced so don't get your hopes and dreams crushed like the people hoping the game to be announced at the Direct.
