Several companies are toning down their presence at E3 next month, but that doesn't mean that E3 will be lacking game reveals. Koei Tecmo recently announced the details of their E3 presence, and that an unannounced game from Omega Force will join Nioh and Attack on Titan on the show floor.
For those unfamiliar, Omega Force is one of the developers behind the venerable Warriors franchise, but the "secret" nature of the game could mean that they're bringing a new franchise into the fold. Considering that we've already seen everything from One Piece to The Legend of Zelda be adapted for the distinct musou gameplay, who knows what's next?
Amos Ip, Senior Vice President and General Manager of the company's American branch, had this to say.
“With an original IP from an extensive, all-star development team, and a Titan-sized action game based on the acclaimed anime, KOEI TECMO America is proud to demonstrate our continued commitment to bringing top notch gaming experiences to our fans. We can’t wait for attendees to get their hands on two of this year’s biggest action titles, and we look forward to their reaction when we unveil an upcoming project that we’re incredibly excited to be working on.”
Is it too much to ask for their new secret game to be a follow up to the long forgotten Fatal Inertia arcade racer that Koei put out a decade go? Or perhaps a return to one of the classic arcade IPs that Tecmo is still holding on to? Probably. In any case, I look forward to seeing what the game is first-hand next month in LA, and we'll be sure to have impressions up on the site the week of the show!
What do you think of Koei Tecmo's E3 offerings this year? Are you excited to see what new franchise the Warriors games will tackle next? Do you think Omega Force might do something other than a Warriors musou game? Let us know in the comments below!
