Operation Backlog Completion 2024
Jun 062018

It’s that time of year again.

E3 2018 press conferences begin at the end of the week, so it’s time for some new hopes and predictions!

E3 2018 Pipe Dreams

One of my hopes from 2015 finally came true (Bayonetta 3), and I doubt they’d announce a TWEWY sequel until the Switch version is out, so that leaves us with:

  • Ace Attorney Investigations 2 localization
  • Tales of Symphonia prequel

From 2016, I still have:

  • The Great Ace Attorney localization
  • Xenosaga HD
  • Knights of the Old Republic 3 (already mentioned)
  • A true Paper Mario (I promise I’ll try Color Splash)

We also have the one pipe dream I added last year:

  • World of Final Fantasy 2

(At least some of my predictions from last year came true.)

This year, I’m going to add Mother 3 localization (because there’s only so often I can predict it before deciding it’s a pipe dream) and a Persona 3 remake combining the best of FES and Persona 3 Portable.

And that brings us to…

E3 2018 Predictions

You know what? I’m going to move Xenosaga HD into the “predictions” category. There have been plenty of rumors, plus the cameos in Xenoblade Chronicles 2. This year, it’s happening.

Now, I don’t include confirmed E3 titles in my predictions, but since CD Projekt RED was just confirmed to be showing something, I’ll toss in the prediction that we’ll get to see Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay.

I also think Square Enix will give us new details on the Final Fantasy VII Remake as well as a Kingdom Hearts 3 release date (all but confirmed).

Maybe we’ll also get to see the three mysterious JRPGs, Square Enix’s Project Prelude Rune, Monolith Soft’s medieval fantasy RPG, and Atlus’s Project Re Fantasy.

After reading this, I think we’ll see a Tales of Vesperia remaster and maybe an announcement of the next Tales game.

FromSoftware’s “Shadows Die Twice” game will finally be revealed.

BioWare will give us a tiny tease of the next Dragon Age game.

Finally, I think Nintendo will at least give us a hint about a new Legend of Zelda game.

E3 Awaits!

We’ll find out soon enough. I probably won’t blog on Friday, since Saturday will kick off my usual coverage of the E3 press conferences. What are you hoping to see at E3? What are you expecting? Let me know in the comments.
