It's that time of year once again, E3 is back and we now know all of the information when it comes to the conferences and what to expect.

So, before we go into the details I want to point out that the titles revealed in the conferences will be spoiled when they do happen in this thread so if you want to stay blind after the events have concluded, the conference videos will be on this first post to save yourselves the hassle.

Other Notes:
  • Sony's press conference will be solely focused on Kojima Productions' Death Stranding, Sucker Punch's Ghosts of Tsushima, Naughty Dog's The Last of Us Part II, and Insomniac's Spider-man. In addition there are some third party announcements mentioned. Given that the PlayStation 4 is in its final phase for the next three years, don't expect any info on PlayStation 5 until either 2019 or 2020.
  • Many titles that were pretty much supposed to be revealed at E3 were leaked already thanks to Walmart. The titles officially revealed now are Assassin's Creed Odyssey, LEGO DC Villains, RAGE 2, and Team Sonic Racing.
  • Nintendo have also gone ahead of things and revealed some Pokemon news, such as Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu & Eevee, Pokemon Quest and Pokemon 2019 untitled games. Bethesda have also gone ahead of schedule to reveal a new Fallout project called Fallout 76. Activision and EA as per usual reveal their big shooters during the month of May with Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII and Battlefield V.
  • Square Enix brings us a new conference since E3 2015 (there was one in E3 2016 but it was solely focused on Deus Ex). Expect some form of news with Crystal Dynamics & Eidos Montréal's The Avengers project thanks to Joe Russo (one of two directors for Avengers: Infinity War) attending E3. Kingdom Hearts III will also have an update, potentially a release date reveal by our guess.

Looks like Tales of Vesperia will finally be remastered thanks to a new site (currently inaccessible) dedicated to the 10th anniversary of the game. The original was released exclusively on Xbox 360 before receiving an updated version exclusively on PlayStation 3.

This is expected to be revealed by Bandai Namco during E3 week.

Trippy trailer. Love the tune as well, but apparently it's an original song from the game so not available anywhere yet.

Warner is only publishing Hitman 2, they didn't buy IOI, who are now an independent developer again.

Didn't make Square enough money, I guess.
Yeah I didn't make it clear enough, I was simply referencing that Warner is publishing the game and not the company.

Update on Dead or Alive 6, looks like the game will mark the first in the series to no longer feature the jiggle/bounce effect that has been part of the franchise since the very first instalment on PlayStation & Arcade. In addition DoA6 will also have less revealing costumes.



It's possible that there will be more costume types that could be revealing later down the line (like via DLC) but that's vague at the moment.

I'm calling BS on this "realistic" DoA. The cast includes a straight up shinobi clan, a DJ that fights for some reason and a female opera singer that hits like a van. Fighters are pushed into electric barriers and thrown down countless flights of stairs and still fight. Tina's dad is twice her size and probably three times her weight, yet she can suplex him for a clean five minutes without straining her back. You can put them in bikinis or pantsuits you'll still see a blonde twig suplex a bear
