To say that Super Mario RPG deserved an HD Remake would be an understatement at this his point. Super Mario RPG: The Legend of the Seven Stars was probably the best Mario game within the role playing genre that the world has ever seen. This game had a creative storyline that did not involve Bowser as the main antagonist and had sprites that resembled something you would see in a N64 game. In fact there are some who argue that Super Mario RPG would have been better off on the Nintendo 64 opposed to the SNES.
But in terms on why we never saw a remake of the classic 16 bit RPG during the 90’s or even the 00’s was obvious. Square Enix and Nintendo simply were not good terms during the time. Even though, things have improved a lot between Nintendo and Square Enix is unlikely that Super Mario RPG will ever be remastered in anyway sometime in the future.
There were so many interesting titles that we got to see at E3 2018 that many people are still talking about. However, it’s arguable that the Spyro Reignited Trilogy was overshadowed at E3 2018 by the upcoming releases of games such as Kingdom Hearts III, Resident Evil 2: Remake along with many other consoles for the PlayStation 4 along with the Xbox One. Those who have been long time fans of the Spyro series since the late 90’s you will have the chance to play digitally remastered versions of each game in the near future.
There is no doubt that Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage along with Spyro: Year of the Dragon were big platform for the PS1 and deserves to be remastered for the PS4 and the Xbox One. The use of the Unreal Engine 4 makes the first three Spyro games look better than ever and will be something that many people will want to check out following its release. The Spyro Reignited Trilogy will be developed by Toys for Bob and published by Activision as it is set to be released on September 21st.
There were so many cool titles that we had the chance to see at E3 2018. In the racing genre of gaming one of the main titles that really stood out was Forza Horizon 4 which is to released for the Xbox One in the near future. As of right now Gran Turismo Sport is one of the hottest racing games out right now next to Forza Motorsport 7 which came out in 2017. In terms on whether or not Forza Sport will end up becoming more successful in the long run is questionable.
The latest game in the series Forza Horizon 3 has managed to sell over 3.6 million copies worldwide since its release back in September 2016. It would be more interesting to see if Forza Horizon 4 can surpass its predecessor in terms of sales opposed to Gran Turismo Sport which has reportedly sold over 2 million units worldwide back in January 2018. There is no doubt that Forza Horizon 4 will be one of the hottest racing titles that we see going into 2019.
When it comes down to big games that we wanted to see at E3 2018 that we never got a chance to see Red Dead Redemption II was definitely one of the few games that many pythons about. The original Red Dead Redemption game which was released back in 2010 was considered to be one of the best action adventure games of the 10’s decade so far. The fact that Red Redemption II did not appear at E3 2018 May come as a surprise to many people since fans of the see have been waiting for for at least seven years since the original game was released.
As of right now Red Dead Redemption II is still expecting to be released this Fall on October 26th for the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One. Also, similar to the original Red Dead Redemption game Rockstar will also be using the Rockstar Advanced Game Engine. Red Dead Redemption II was initially announced by Rockstar back in the Fall of 2016 and saw at least three trailers of the game since then. Despite, not appearing at E3 2018 Red Dead Redemption II will most likely be released within the year to the delight of many eShop are fans of the series in general.
There were so many exciting announcements that we heard at E3 2018 in terms of upcoming games for late 2018 and 2019. One of the most shocking announcements that we have heard involved the upcoming release of a crossover fighting game revealed by Bandi Namco entitled Jump Force. This upcoming fighting title will feature popular anime characters including different series such as Dragonball Z, One Piece Naruto and even Death Note.
Similar to Dragonball FighterZ which was released back in January 2018 Jump Force will be a three on three tag team fighting game with fast paced action and stunning visuals. As of right now Jump Force is scheduled to be released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Microsoft Windows in early 2019.
When it comes to role playing games from the 90’s both Tactics Orge: Let Us Cling Together and Final Fantasy were among two of the most popular titles within that genre of gaming. Not only were both games fantastic RPG titles but some would argue that both titles were similar in many aspects. Both Tactics Orge: LUCT and Final Fantasy Tactics has isometric perspectives along with interesting storylines. However, many would argue that the graphics in Tactics Orge: LUCT were more superior than Final Fantasy Tactics since it was less grainy which is debatable.
However, in terms of in game mechanics some would argue that Final Fantasy Tactics was a better game for a couple of reasons. Final Fantasy Tactics has features such as the inclusion of a 3D battle map along with a more superior magic & skill system than Tactics Orge: Let Us Cling Together. Also, since its release Final Fantasy Tactics has managed to sell over 2.4 million units worldwide since its release back in the late 90’s. Since the Final Fantasy series in general is more popular than Tactics Orge those who are die hard fans of the FF series would most likely put Final Fantasy Tactics over Tactics Orge: Let Us Cling Together as being more successful in the long run.
When it comes down to popular 3D Sonic the Hedgehog games in general both Sonic Adventure 2 and Sonic Colors are to game that instantly comes to mind. In fact, Sonic Colors was arguably the best 3D game in the series ever since Sonic Adventure 2 was release back in 2001. Sonic Adventure 2 has managed to sell over 1.4 million units worldwide since its release and was very popular on the Nintendo GameCube back in the early 00’s. Not only did Sonic Adventure 2 introduce new characters such as Shadow the Hedgehog and Rouge the Bat but the story mode in the game was way better than its predecessor. Challenging levels with the Hero and Dark storylines really added to the overall replay value of Sonic Adventure 2 in general.
Sonic Colors has great visuals along with a nice soundtrack which were two features that probably stood out the most aside from its plot. Since its release Sonic Colors has managed to sell over 2.1 million copies worldwide since its release back in 2010. Despite, how successful Sonic Colors was back in the early 10’s many would argue that Sonic Adventure 2 was more popular on a mainstream level during the early 00’s than Sonic Colors was in the early 10’s.
