More good games at E3 2016

By the time I’m writing this, the third day at the E3 is well underway. I haven’t seen more surprising titles which isn’t strange as the main presentations are over. Still, it seems nice to add a few videos here for games we already knew about, that added some more info or a new game trailer.

Dragon Quest VII Fragments of the Forgotten Past for 3DS

A game that was announced at the Nintendo Direct has gotten a new trailer and a release date for America: September 16. Dragon Quest IX is one of the games I actually finished, so this will be a good RPG to look forward to!

The game features (from Siliconera):

  • Rebuilt visuals and a complete retelling of the story make this a fresh way to experience this classic game.
  • Explore a beautifully designed world that you shape as you travel back and forth in time.
  • Meet an iconic cast of classic characters and monsters designed by critically acclaimed manga and game artist Akira Toriyama.
  • Customize your party from more than 30 vocations and level up in turn-based battles to learn new spells and abilities.
  • Expand and share your adventure even more with the StreetPass feature – send and receive traveler’s tablets to explore new dungeons that contain rare monsters and unique equipment.

Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE

Although handheld gaming has my preference, sometimes a great console title comes along that catches my interest. Tokyo Mirage is such a game that might have me dusting off my WiiU. What I see in the trailer strongly reminds me of Persona 4, which I loved! The game is almost upon us, and will be released in America and Europe on June 24.

These are the games characteristics (from Siliconera)

  • A new Atlus RPG inspired by the Shin Megami Tensei and Fire Emblem franchises.
  • Play to your strengths in high-energy turn-based battles against rogue enemies.
  • Use your creative power to summon iconic Fire Emblem heroes to battle alongside and save the city.
  • Exploit enemy weaknesses and destroy them with powerful, flashy, entertainment-themed attacks.
  • Fuse items to craft increasingly strong weapons and abilities. Save your city and become a star in this shamelessly over-the-top RPG.

Yokai watch 2 for 3DS

Of course we cannot forget Yokai Watch 2, which will be release on September 30. The new game will be released in two titles, Fleshy Souls and Bony Spirits, and I’m glad that this time they added online functionality. Here’s a some gameplay shown at Nintendos Treehouse.

Yo-kai Watch 2 Features ( from Siliconera):

  • Embark on an all-new adventure in Springdale with more than 350 new and returning Yo-kai to discover and befriend-each with a unique look, personality, and Soultimate Moves.
  • Assemble your team of 6 Yo-kai on your Yo-kai Watch to battle troublemaking Yo-kai, solve people’s problems, and end a civil war between competing Yo-kai factions.
  • Touchscreen-based battle actions initiate powerful Soultimate Moves, purify inspirited Yo-kai, and heal your Yo-kai.
  • Ride trains to new surrounding areas, such as the countryside village Harrisville and seaside town of San Fantastico.
  • Travel back in time to discover the origin of the Yo-kai Watch and meet Classic Yo-kai from 60 years ago, while you ensure the Yo-Kai Watch Model Zero is created and your timeline is preserved.
  • Team up with up to 4 players in an all-new action-based local multiplayer mode (additional games and systems required for multiplayer mode. Sold separately.).
    For the first time, challenge your friend’s team over the Internet in addition to local wireless in 2-player multiplayer battles.
  • Get one of three special Yo-kai (Buchinyan, Noko, or Komasan) by using data from the original YO-KAI WATCH game.

I wonder if I’ll have enough to tell you tomorrow for the weekly gaming cup of coffee!


  1. Hello Yvonne,

    I just wanted to tell you i really like your blog!
    I don’t respond mutch, but i read almost every post.
    I’m not really into the whole social media and news site’s thing, so its very nice to recieve a mail every time you added a new blog and keeping me informed!
    So thanks!

    I’m really exided about Dragon Quest 7 and Ever Oasis for the 3DS!
    I’ve completed several DS Dragon Quest games to, and for me that isn’t standerd either.
    And i’m a big fan of Fantasy Life and Animal Crossing, so Ever Oasis is one to watch to!

    Greeting, Ronja

    1. Hey Ronja, that’s so good to hear! It’s always gratifying to know my readers love joining me here in the gaming fun! Both animal crossing and Fantasy Life are amount my favorite games, so I’m really looking forward to Ever Oasis a lot!
      By the way, did you enjoy Little Kings Story on the Vita? And have you ever tried one of the Atelier games?

  2. Great choices! Nintendo had a surprisingly great roster of games on its second day of Treehouse Live. You mentioned Ever Oasis in another post, but Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE, Yo-kai Watch 2, and DQVII all look like they will be great. TMS#FE looks particularly interesting, and it’s great that its release is very soon. I also liked the original Yo-kai Watch to some extent, and the sequel looks like it will be even better!This is going to be the year of RPGs for Nintendo!

    1. I wish Tokyo Mirage was on the 3DS, but I might look into it on my wiiU for it. somehow it reminds me of Persona 4, which I loved!
      And I think you’re right, Yokai Watch 2 will be better, if only for its online functionality.

      1. 3DS is great for long RPG experiences, I agree. Though it’s also nice that the Wii U will have at least one (hopefully great) game before Zelda and the NX come out. Thanks for reminding me that I still need to play Persona 4!

We love to hear from you!
