Blimey, I'd forgotten about this! Wasn't it being developed by Frontier for years? Without Googling, I can't recall if it was officially canned or not.

Rockstar, don't think it has ever been officially canned.

I don't want much,

- Pokémon Switch footage
- Animal Crossing Switch announcement and footage
- Retro's new game, at this point in time I'm just more interested as to what it actually is that if it looks any good or not.

Other than that I'd like to see some third party stuff, mainly a new mainline a Elder Scrolls game. Maybe some Star Wars games heading to the Switch.

Anything else I'll take as a bonus :)

A new Elder Scrolls announcement game would be a nice surprise, but I can't see that happening for a while yet.

I have a feeling that's going to be a next gen project as it could be a pretty amazing showcase for the extra horsepower.
I'd also rather they don't show it now and end up not releasing it for 3 or 4 years as that now really annoys me.

Oh, man, yes. Whilst there is no doubt that the PS4 has had lots of great exclusives, I dislike Sony's E3 style of "hey, we've started making [game title]!" and then discovering that it's three years from launch. I prefer Nintendo's approach of only showing games due this year. Or even Microsoft's style of not having any gaems.


(I'm jesting, Xboxians :lol: ).

The main problem with Nintendo's near-term-only strategy is that is always feels like there's bugger all coming out. E3 for Sony and MS' events always have a, "Hey, look at what you've got to look forward to next year, hopefully," kinda vibe, so even if this year's offerings are sub-par, there's always hope for next year. Nintendo lost that a while ago. I mean, yeah, we got wind of Skyward Sword, BotW and Metroid Prime 4 much further in advance, but those were like rare gifts to fans, not really what you'd call expected - and SS's first reveal with the Fi concept art was at a round-table, not during their show.

Twilight Princess might've released years after its reveal, and in a very different state, but hot damn, that was the best reveal. :wub:

I think Bethesda are due a new game to be showed off out in the next year or so. Doesn't look like it'll be Elder Scrolls 6 and presumably not Fallout 5...so something new?

They have a couple of big new IPs in development, so yeah it'll be one of those.

Definitely expecting something Fallout- or TES-themed to be shown off too, though, just in the Android/iOS vein. Maybe a Switch port for Fallout 4.

I would love this to happen. Even better, Fallout 3 and New Vegas, which I've been wishing for since the Wii U launched.

Provided they don't have tiny on-screen text.

Only even mentioning a new Elder Scrolls as Skyrim came out nearing 7 years ago which is surprising as it definitely doesn't feel like nearing 7 years since I first played it! Thought it might be time to finally get a teaser of sorts for TES 7 at E3.

Didn't Bethesda tease/hint at a new Doom recently as well?

Starfield (Fallout in space) is the next Bethesda game which will probably be formally announced at E3. They've said Elder Scrolls is 3rd in line so could be a decade before that's released.

Seeing it mentioned on here is the first I've even heard of Starfield, Elder Scrolls/Fallout in space sounds very appealing though.

There was a rumour of Doom II in the works. Happy days if it turns out to be true.

Very, only played Doom for the first time when it launched on Switch but I loved it.

Y'all been living under a rock? It was heavily rumored last year.

I'm normally checking the gaming news every day but I have totally missed everything about this! All of a sudden it could well become one of my most anticipated games! I don't think any footage - or anything official - has been released yet, though?
