Final Fantasy VII Remake (PS4) E3 2019 Trailer

Ah, yes. There was a little game that was shown at Square Enix's press conference over E3 2019. It's something called Final Fantasy VII Remake, which is apparently a remake of Final Fantasy VII. Have you heard of it?

Seriously though, I'm in absolute love with the look of the game, and the pieces seem to be perfectly falling into place. Well, almost. Seeing as not even the directors are sure about how long this full remake process of retelling the FFVII story will take, I might not be alive in 2070 to witness the conclusion! Other than that, with a release date of March 3rd, 2020 (I would have bet we would have just a release period, so I'm glad I didn't put any gil down on that!), Final Fantasy VII Remake is shaping up to be well worth the wait for episode one.

Dragon Quest Builders 2 (PS4, NSW) E3 2019 Trailer

With its July 12th release date for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch soon approaching, Square Enix has provided an in-depth overview trailer for the game's appearance at E3 2019, featuring quite the overzealous announcer! Seriously--this guy would get me invested in sports if he did commentary! I found lots to be entertained with in the original Dragon Quest Builders, so there's no doubt in my mind that I'm going to jump at the chance to build some more awesome memories with the game's sequel. For those that aren't so certain of DQB 2, check out the free demo coming to both the PlayStation Store and Nintendo eShop on June 27th!

Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled (PS4, XB1, NSW) E3 2019 Grand Prix Introduction Trailer

Can a kart racing game have TOO much content? Of course not--but that doesn't stop me from thinking that Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is flirting with that idea! This new video for E3 2019 presents the Grand Prix mode, featuring abundant new content and updates to keep players revving their engines and racing hard for years to come! Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled launches on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch on June 21st!

Shenmue III (PS4, PC) E3 2019 Trailer

After a delay to the busy gaming month of November and some controversy regarding the Epic Games Store, Shenmue III arrives at E3 2019 with a brand-new trailer. It looks incredibly improved, and markedly so with each new look. I still need to catch up with the Shenmue saga myself by picking up the HD remasters of the original Shenmue and its sequel! Welp! I know what I'm doing this weekend!

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot (PS4, XB1, PC) E3 2019 Trailer

Is it appropriate of me to consider Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot essentially a big budget remake of the Game Boy Advance's Dragon Ball Z: Legacy of Goku? I'm being tongue in cheek with this statement, but to be fair, it is an RPG, it does tell the story of Goku up to the end of the Frieza saga, apparently, and it has a lot of other things in common with Legacy of Goku. I just hope the quality of the gameplay of Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot--the 205th retelling of Goku's story in video game form--is higher than what was seen in the lackluster original Legacy of Goku. Add this game to my continuing list of anticipated 2020 titles!
