Following E3, the stream of actual videogame releases (as opposed to teasers and announcements) continues to be slow. Nevertheless, EA launches its next huge franchise for the new consoles.
UFC (Xbox One, PS4)
Not only did Electronic Arts pluck the UFC license from the dead carcass of THQ, but the publisher also wrangled the likeness of cultural icon Bruce Lee for EA Sports’ ‘UFC‘. The demo for the virtual MMA fighter has been out for two weeks, and there’s little doubt that the game was a fan favorite at E3.
Battle Princess of the Arcadias (PS3)
I first saw ‘Battle Princess of the Arcadias‘, back in February, and it’s easily one of my most anticipated NIS America titles. The game looks like a proper side-scrolling brawler with a colorful art style. It’s a perfect title for the summer doldrums.
‘Entwined’ was actually a surprise release from Sony in honor of E3. Aside from a few glimpses of the ‘Journey’ meets ‘Rez’ title, I haven’t yet gotten to play it, but it looks stellar.
MotoGP 14 (360, PS3, PC)
Straight from Italy comes ‘MotoGP 14‘, which boasts an overhauled graphics engine and a full rosters of drivers from both the 2013 and 2014 seasons. This is a must for racing fans.
