If there’s one thing that the Electronic Entertainment Expo is known for, it’s the wealth of game trailers and previews that are debuted across the 3 day celebration of all things video game related. E3 2018 has been no different and here are the games we are most excited to get our console-loving hands on.

By rebuilding the game from the ground up, Nintendo have tweaked move sets, abilities, animations, and general game pacing and have brought back every Smash Bros. character to create the sequel.
We’re not exaggerating when we say we’ve waited years for this. CD Projekt Red, developer of The Witcher, has finally released another peak at their highly anticipated sci-fi RPG Cyberpunk 2077 and while they haven’t revealed any game play footage yet, you do get a look at the game setting – a gorgeous futuristic city.

Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice
Dark Souls creator From Software stole the spotlight at E3 2018 with the announcement of their new game, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice and it was revealed that the game will take place in a Japan-inspired world, moving away from the medieval castles of games past.
Sable may quite possibly be the most stylish game revealed at E3 2018 and features bold, crisp artwork set against the haunting, evocative soundtrack created by Japanese Breakfast.
Players explore a vast desert bursting with bizarre structures, but much of the game play will remain a mystery until Sable releases in 2019.
