It’s currently June and thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, the ESA had to cancel E3 2020 earlier this year, which would have taken place this week in the Los Angeles Convention Center. We would have seen a Nintendo Direct full of adorable and charming game trailers, Sony might’ve put on a State of Play to reveal some PS5 goodies, and Microsoft could’ve finally shown us Halo Infinite gameplay.
And since gaming conferences are literally scattered about the summer months this year, reveals, and announcements just aren’t being done in the same fashion as they would have during E3 2020.
With all that being said, here are 9 incredible game reveals that would have made this E3 one to remember.
Metroid Prime 4
Metroid Prime 4 was originally announced way back in 2017 and then two years later, the project had to be started from scratch due to troubled internal development. And now 2020 is almost over and we still do not know what this game looks like or if it’s even close to being done.
Did Nintendo perhaps announce Metroid Prime 4 a bit too early? Yes, most definitely. The game wasn’t even revealed with a trailer or a screenshot but instead just a logo, barely.
Now that Nintendo has been quiet on the development side of things related to Metroid Prime 4, seeing it come out of the shadows for the first time in three years would have been incredible to witness during E3 2020.
There could have been a new gameplay trailer showing off Samus in the modern era for the first time, and we could have gotten a look at how the Metroid Prime series has evolved since the latest entry that came out in 2007.
Here’s hoping that Retro Studios and Nintendo can reveal something soon. Samus has been quiet for way too long now.
