E3 2013: Konami Pre-E3 Conference Recap

June 6, 2013

Welcome to the first of many E3 Recaps/Announcements/Opinion Posts. Usually here on the blog, I focus on covering just games I’m planning on reviewing. E3 is different though, so for every big Press Conference/Major Announcement, I’ll be covering it here on the blog. I’ll be recapping major points from Press Conferences, and keeping you up to speed on major announcements. Also, come back to the blog Next Weekend, as I’ll be covering the four E3 demos at Best Buy and giving my thoughts on them. For now though, on with the recap!

– The Press Conference was very similar to a Nintendo Direct.

– Konami is celebrating their 40th Anniversary this year.

Ku Fu Factory is working with Konami to publish multiple titles, which will also be brought to iOS. The first will be Domo Jump! The game is “coming soon”.

MLB Live Challenge was announced. Teaser will be shown at Konami booth at E3. I believe it is a mobile/iOS/tablet game.

– Konami doing something with “Social Casino Apps” (Excuse my ignorance on these kinds of apps). Titles coming include Slot Revolution and Casino League: Texas Hold’ Em. I believe they will also be playable at the Konami Booth at E3 on Android and iOS.

PES 2014: Pro Evolution Soccer is using a new engine, Fluidity, created specifically for the game. It was discussed for a little bit. I’m not going to butcher the details. Brief Video/”Trailer” was shown as well.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain news: Kiefer Sutherland is voicing Snake. Major focus on making sure Snake’s reactions/voice acting are in sync for the game.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 was discussed and showed new footage. Demo available at Konami E3 Booth. New Trailer also show.

Final Verdict: It was kind of boring, as you can tell from the lack of detail in this recap. Highlights were probably Metal Gear Solid V news, and maybe Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2. That’s really it though.

June is going to be a crazy month for announcements! There will be big DVD announcements, Video Game news, and more! Be sure to check back here at SaveUsFromObscurity and at @TSilentWatcher regularly to stay up to date with the latest news and reviews!
