E3 2017 is quickly approaching, and boy is this one leaky ship.
Super Smash Bros. on Nintendo Switch
If these leaked screenshots are anything to go by, Super Smash Bros. on Nintendo Switch looks to combine stages from both the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions of the latest installment. Smash Run from the 3DS version also seems to be making its console debut, now with online multiplayer.
Assassin’s Creed: Origins
Alongside other rumors and leaks, promotional t-shirts branded with the new Assassin’s Creed protagonist have now been spotted in Gamestop retailers, linking to the expecting Ancient Egyptian setting.
Mario+Rabbids: Kingdom Battle
Artwork and marketing plans have leaked for the new Nintendo/Ubisoft crossover featuring Mario characters teaming up with Rabbids. Gameplay seems to revolve around around exploration and turn-based combat with gun-like weapons.
Despite assertions from developer FromSoftware that Bloodborne 2 will not be revealed at E3, supposed leaks for the game continue to circulate, including a possible title screen.
Another FromSoftware rumor, this time asserting we’ll be getting an ancient Aztec-themed martial arts game. This description however mysteriously aligns with another upcoming game, Absolver, so much so that it calls the validity of Phantom Wail into question. Whatever it is FromSoft is cooking up, hopefully they can finally put an end to our questions at E3.
Star Wars: Battlefront 2
Early insider footage of gameplay from the new Battlefront sequel has appeared online, showcasing new and returning characters, combat, and killer Empire droids.
Batman: Arkham Sequel
For years we’ve heard rumors of a follow-up to 2015’s Arkham Knight. Developed by either Rocksteady or Warner Bros. Montreal, we’re definitely getting another Batman game in the future, but what is it? Rumors of a future Damian Wayne game have been most prevalent. More recently however are supposed leaks of “Batman: Arkham Insurgency”, a game taking place between Origins and Asylum that has Batman going after the Court of Owls.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider
The next installment in the Tomb Raider franchise was leaked late last year, embarrassingly seen from an open laptop on a Montreal subway. Will we see a more official reveal at this year’s E3?
Wolfenstein: New Colossus
The code worde “New Colossus” was teased last year at Bethesda’s E3 press conference, and we may finally see its official reveal soon. As a follow-up to 2014’s Wolfenstein reboot, The New Order, the sequel is rumored to take place in a Nazi-occupied America.
Life is Strange Prequel
Images of what seems to be a prequel to the original Life is Strange have now leaked online. Developed by Deck Nine Games, formerly Idol Minds, the images appear to imply the prequel will have a focus on Chloe and Rachael’s relationship, something players only saw a glimpse of in the original.
Minecraft: Story Mode Season 2
An Australian classification website has prematurely revealed the existence of the first episode of Telltale Games’ second season of Minecraft Story mode, titled Hero in Residence.
*NOTE – None of this rumors are officially confirmed, so take them all with a grain of salt until officially revealed at E3.
