With E3 starting tommorrow(well, technically tommorrow, there's actually stuff going on today), I figured it was time to post up some pre-E3 news. This year we have Rudo going it alone at E3, but he's with GameNET's Steve. We'll be posting tons of news, just like last year. Now, on to the pre-E3 news.
It is almost gauranteed that Ninja Gaiden IV will show up for either the Nintendo 64 or Sony Playstation(most likely) at E3 from Tecmo. If you go to their website they've left messages on both their Coming Soon and What's New sections. Who knows what they have up their sleeve, but all I have to say is, it's a new Ninja Gaiden, and I'm all for it!
Secondly, there's a good chance Working Designs could announce Lunar: Eternal Blue Remix on the Sony Playstation at E3. The game is due out in a few days in Japan on the Playstation, and now would be as good a time as any to announce it. Who knows, maybe WD has even more ready to show at E3(they only have Lunar SSS and Silhouette Mirage left on their lineup, excluding the "mystery RPG"). I still personally think they'll announce Lunar: Eternal Blue, but one things for sure. There sure is some mystery surrounding what WD has in store for E3.
Third, Grandia should be showing up at Sony's booth. Also expect Star Ocean 2, Suikoden 2, and others from their respective companies. And don't forget the Dreamcast and PSX2 stuff. Especially Dreamcast, with it's US launch coming in a few months.
Lastly, you can expect Square to be showing some of their upcoming products such as FFA and Final Fantasy VIII. While this is total rumor, there's a possibility of the announcement of Legend of Mana at E3. I doubt that though considering it's still a ways from being completed, even in Japan.
