There has been a lot of talk about Metroid Prime potentially making a comeback in some form at E3 and today we actually got a look at the handheld Metroid Prime title. Check out the trailer for Metroid Prime: Federation Force below.

The co-op multiplayer will be available for the 3DS in 2016. The trailer included Blast Ball as a mini game mode, a new 3v3 multiplayer game that was revealed during the 2015 World Championships on Sunday.

Nintendo Announces Star Fox: Zero at E3

star-fox-zero-620x349

The start of Nintendo’s digital event saw the return of Star Fox to the Wii U under the name Star Fox: Zero.

The footage that was shown during the announcement saw a multitude of montage of gameplay scenes that included familiar environments like Corneria from Star Fox 64 as well as some brand new areas. New vehicles were also shown off including the Arwing spacecraft, the Walker from the unreleased Star Fox 2, the Landmaster tank, and the Gyrowing which is a hovercraft that Nintendo revealed in an exclusive demo last year. Game designer Shigeru Miyamoto explained that “We’ve re-built the game using ideas from the past, but this is not a part 4 or 5,”. He also made it a point to say “It’s not a remake either.”

What is unique about the game is that it uses the Wii U’s GamePad to steer and motion controls to aim at enemies. Miyamoto claims that “For Wii U, with its two screens, we experimented with gameplay ideas before this iteration of Star Fox,”. The two screens do serve a legitimate purpose. Your television will present a cinematic view while your GamePad displays a cockpit view. Here’s the trailer for those anxious to get a look at it.

Star Fox: Zero will look for a holiday release date in 2016.

Sony Ends Press Conference With Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End

Sony had a time of it during their press conference and really made the most of it when they unveiled extended footage of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End in all its glory.

The seven minute demo saw Nathan and Sully team back up as they almost immediately start off in a firefight of sorts within a confines of a South American street market. As Nathan and Sully make their escape in a jeep they are instantly pursued by a riot van decked out with a turret and have to find a way to shake them. Driving through streets and on top of buildings the pair finally shake the van… or so they thought. The final part of the demo saw the duo speeding down the streets to a seaside with the enemy riot van following close behind. It all ends with Nathan being launching himself out of the jeep and onto the docks as he’s swinging from a rope he latched to a moving vehicle.

The trailer was intense as we even saw some new moves from Nathan use a flying punch to immobilize an enemy while catching their gun in the same movement. Those who can’t wait for the release can hold themselves over with and updated version of the previous Uncharted games in the Nathan Drake Collection, which will be available this October.

Guerilla Games Debuts Horizon: Zero Dawn

2015-06-1518-20-08jpg-bfd57d_765w

Don’t know if Guerilla Games is taking a break from Killzone but if they are, they used that time away to make a new title called Horizon: Zero Dawn. The game made its debut moments ago during Sony’s E3 press conference and it looks really interesting.

The trailer involves a female warrior exploring what looks like an ancient cave and its paintings while a narrator explains the evolution of technology along with the rise of civilization and the fall of the future through nature and its attempt to reclaim humanity’s creations. Through tribes man survived through hunting tactics and combining brand new technologies with ancient designs.

At one point, it looks as though some foe finds the female warrior hiding in the grass and a chase ensues. She takes the dinosaur-like creature out with a knife, and apologizes. Her rest is short as the scuffle startled a herd of robotic deer and out comes a mechanized T-Rex. Unable to escape she engages the T-Rex in combat she uses her bow amongst other things to take him down. No rest for the weary as not long after a mechanized pterodactyl swoops in screeching at the heroine before the trailer ends.

Can’t say I’ve ever seen anything like it (which is a first), but maybe Sony is on to something. It is a beautiful game and one that should entice many when Horizon: Zero Dawn makes its way to the Playstation 4.

rainbow-six-siege

Rainbow Six Seige made its debut at last years E3. This year it came back with more footage and a very special guest to boot. The return of the fan-favorite Terrorist Hunt mode is one of the biggest things this year. The Ubisoft Montreal development team wants you to “never have the same experience twice” so it is safe to say that this time around things may be a bit different, but still awesome all the same.

And now the special guest. Angela Basset will star in the upcoming Rainbow Six game as “Six,” the codename for the leader of the elite counter-terrorism group. The clip shows off the first look at Basset in her role as Six.

Rainbow Six Seige will release its Beta on all platforms on September 24 of this year and will officially release on October 13 of this year as well. Xbox One owners who purchase the game will receive free copies of Rainbow Six Vegas and Rainbow Six Vegas 2 for Xbox One owners.

Five Minutes of Star Wars: Battlefront Gives Us Luke Skywalker vs. Darth Vader

37729-star-wars-battlefront-video-del-gameplay-e3-2015_jpg_1280x720_crop_upscale_q85The first real look at Star Wars: Battlefront gave us everything we were waiting for. Before the five minutes of footage here, LucasArts gave us seven minutes of great gameplay during the Star Wars Celebration a while back. This time around, the gameplay footage gives us a better understanding of how the game looks in both third and first-person.

Check out the actual footage below.

At this years E3, EA gave us a very old feel when they started the footage off on Hoth in the middle of a huge battle between the Rebel Alliance and the Imperial Soldiers. Rockets and rifle fire fill the air as the Alliance defend the hangar against the Imperial Soldiers while trying to defend and activate control points.
star-wars-battlefront-trailer-gameplay-playstation-4-e3-2015The Empire’s AT-AT are automated in terms of their ability to move and navigate, but still can deal major damage. The airstrikes come in from the Imperial Soldiers, but the Rebel Alliance find a way to defend against it using a bubble shield.

The game switches to none other than Luke Skywalker as you now can play as a Jedi. Familiar jedi moves such as force push and force dash are used to take down several enemies at once… and yes you do get to use the lightsaber. It’s all fun and games until Darth Vader enters the battlefield and as soon as Luke and Vader clash, the footage is over.

Star Wars: Battlefront will be available for Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
