NeoGAF member Cheesemeister has rather handily put together a chart detailing when all the E3 press conferences begin. There’s no excuse to miss any of the conferences now as there’s time’s from each region. Fallout creators Bethesda will be kicking off E3 2015 with their conference which is at 2.30am UK time. Be sure to bookmark this page ready for E3.
There’s been a lot of talk about Konami lately especially regarding P.T and the Metal Gear Solid series. Konami’s new CEO Hayakawa has explained to Japanese publication Nikkei Trendy Net that he believes that mobile is the future of gaming and that is where they are going to put their resources from now on. This may be disheartening to some, but it seems to be the direction they are heading.
“Our main platform will be mobiles. Following the pay-as-you-play model of games like Power pro and Winning Eleven with additional content, our games must move from selling things like “items” to selling things like “features.”
“We saw with these games that even people who buy physical games are motivated to buy extra content. The success of Power pro especially has motivated us to actively push more of our popular series onto mobile than ever before.”
“Gaming has spread to a number of platforms, but at the end of the day, the platform that is always closest to us, is mobile. Mobile is where the future of gaming lies.”
“We hope that our overseas games such as MGSV and Winning Eleven continue to do well, but we are always thinking about how to push our franchises onto mobile there too.”
“With multiplatform games, there’s really no point in dividing the market into categories anymore. Mobiles will take on the new role of linking the general public to the gaming world.”
Thanks, Nintendo Impact Gaming!
You all probably remember the super-fun Tony Hawk series of video games that appeared on multiple platforms. Well, the latest iteration has been announced and it would appear as though it’s coming to all home consoles apart from the Wii U. Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 is coming first to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and then coming to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 at a later date, but there’s been no mention of a Wii U version. You can read more about the game, here.
Star Wars is officially coming to Disney Infinity with Disney Infinity 3.0. The news was kinda leaked early last week but it has now been confirmed by none other than Game Informer. The game features Star Wars along side new Marvel characters. DmC developer Ninja Theory will be helping out with the combat aspects of the game, while Sonic Racing Transformed developer Sumo Digital is helping out with the racing sections. Should be good!
Sega fans will be slightly disappointed to learn that the publisher and developer won’t have its own E3 booth this year. We already know that they’ve scaled back on producing games for consoles and are focussing on tablet, smartphone, and online PC titles. However, Sega will be teaming up with its partners so it is reasonably likely that you’ll see Sega titles at Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo’s booths.
“Over the next months, SEGA of America will be focusing on the restructure and relocation to Southern California, and we have decided to not attend E3 with our own booth this year,” a representative told us via email. “With the majority of our bigger titles launching later in 2015/2016, particularly those from our AAA studios Relic Entertainment, Sports Interactive and Creative Assembly, we are concentrating our efforts for some of these major announcements after our relocation. Instead, we will be collaborating with our various business partners for this year’s E3 show.”
It seems as though the original Turok on the Nintendo 64 could be remade by a small studio called Night Dive Studios. Whether this game will see the light of day remains to be seen, but I’m sure there are quite a few of you that have fond memories of the Nintendo 64 launch title which was released in 1997.
TR: After Powerslave EX, are you going to try your hand at remaking other shooters?
Kaiser: I was originally working on remaking N64 Turok (called Turok EX) but it got put off to the side. Since now Night Dive Studios has picked up the rights to re-release it, Turok EX will resume development later this year. By the way, I’ve also done work with Night Dive by re-releasing Strife, which was another reverse-engineering project that me and a friend worked on back in 2010.
