2019 is coming to an in depth and which means plenty of year-end wrap-ups and awards are both occurring now or within the close to future. One which has turn into a December custom for avid gamers the final a number of years has been The Recreation Awards, Geoff Keighley’s personal manufacturing he managed to boost from a low hire cable annual program to one thing that’s its personal unbiased factor on streaming, which is kind of the accomplishment.
It’s nice that there’s something like this that celebrates video games, and there positive have been some nice and deserving winners each this yr and years previous. However what actually will get individuals speaking about The Recreation Awards the day without work and sometimes for a number of days after is that it’s an occasion recognized for lots of first-look, or what they time period “world premiere” trailers.
It typically doesn’t have the magnitude of one thing like E3, however there’s often a number of cool stuff you see that you just haven’t seen earlier than. With that in thoughts, listed here are the 5 greatest trailers that premiered at The Recreation Awards for 2019:
#5. Ultimate Fantasy 7 Remake Trailer
Okay, that was fairly cool. Among the best trailers at The Recreation Awards truly occurred through the pre-show. We’ve recognized the Ultimate Fantasy VII remake has been on its approach for some time and we did see fairly a little bit of it at E3, however because it is likely one of the largest RPGs of all time, followers are clamoring for increasingly more till its launch early subsequent yr. They obtained some extra finally night time’s pre-show.
As somebody who falls on the aspect of the unique Ultimate Fantasy VII being good however extremely overrated, I haven’t been that excited by the idea of a remake that spans a number of episodic releases with lord solely is aware of how lengthy between them. I nonetheless would possibly wait till your complete factor is finished frankly, however this trailer was extraordinarily good and reveals some nice stuff between Cloud and Tifa particularly.
In all seriousness, this has the potential to really high the current Resident Evil 2 remake as one in all if not the perfect re-imaginings of what’s usually thought-about a online game basic to this point. However momentum is vital.
Although most individuals are conscious who’ve been following the sport, Sq. Enix hasn’t been mentioning that that is solely the primary episode that solely covers a small a part of the unique story. We do not know how lengthy it will likely be between episodes or what number of. In the event that they don’t sustain an everyday launch schedule, it may actually lose steam in a rush.
For now, the Ultimate Fantasy VII remake will get its first episode on March 3. Hopefully, by E3 2020 we’ll hear one thing in regards to the subsequent chapter.
#4. Ghost of Tsushima
This was arguably the largest AAA recreation proven at The Recreation Awards this yr. Ghost of Tsushima is a extremely anticipated recreation from Sony’s Sucker Punch Productions studio (Notorious), and whereas it has suffered some unlucky delays, it’s positively one recreation PlayStation Four house owners are wanting ahead to. It’s possible one of many ultimate massive video games for the console as the subsequent technology is simply across the nook.
Arguably probably the most attention-grabbing factor about Ghost of Tsushima is it’s so completely different from what Sucker Punch has finished earlier than. Beforehand they’ve finished thieving cartoon raccoons and superheroes. This can be a very critical straight-forward samurai motion recreation.
It’s good to see them strive one thing fully new and see how they will stretch themselves extra creatively, for positive. Perhaps it’s even laying the bottom for a brand new franchise and we’ll see a follow-up on the PlayStation 5. We’ll see if they succeed when Ghost of Tsushima unsheathes its blade on the PS4 subsequent Summer season.
#3. Bravely Default II
The one new recreation for the Nintendo Swap proven at The Recreation Awards was additionally a little bit of a complicated one. Wasn’t there a second Bravely Default recreation already? With the identical characters? There positive was, it was referred to as Bravely Second. So this could be a bit complicated to some.
Bravely Default II does characteristic a complete new set of heroes, which is widespread for a Sq. Enix recreation slightly than having one major forged for all or a lot of the sequence. Not a lot else was revealed however it should possible characteristic the identical battle system you’ve seen in each the earlier Bravely Default video games and Octopath Traveler.
I actually cherished so much about Bravely Default, however the recreation kinda fell aside for me close to the tip. Octopath Traveler, alternatively, is one my favourite RPGs I’ve performed the previous couple of years so if it leans extra in the direction of the latter and fewer in the direction of the previous we now have one other probably nice RPG on the Nintendo Swap, which already arguably has the perfect RPG library of any console ever.
