This list was kindly taken from Polygon who has compiled the list as the show was going on. There were a lot of first look on upcoming games. It’s a little surprising that there wasn’t anything for Bayonetta 2. The Game Awards had ended but the Sony Experience begins this weekend. Hope you enjoyed the show! I appreciated the piece on Sierra Games, it was really nostalgic. Ending with Zelda was a nice touch. There was footage from the new Zelda Wii U game with a discussion between Shigeru Miyamoto and Eiji Aonuma. They revealed that Majora’s Mask will be released, followed by Star Fox and then Zelda for the Wii U. Take a look at the video here:
