2016 is chock full of amazing games but often the exclusives are the games that really shine. Developers can focus their efforts on creating a game optimized for a single platform rather then dividing their efforts to make a mediocre port to the other consoles. There are many exclusives planned for the upcoming few month but these 3 have us geared up and ready to go! Each is poised to show us the extent that each system is capable of delivering! So without further ado….here we go!
2016 is going to be an exciting year for Pokémon and one of the reasons for this is undoubtably thePokémon x Tekken title that is Pokkén Tournament. The game will feature a number of popular Pokémon, battling it out in arcade-style combat. Originally only for Japanese arcades, it was recently announced that Pokkén Tournament would see a Wii U release in 2016. What we’ve seen so far looks very impressive and there are several new elements coming to the console release of the game, such as new playable Pokémon and even the never-seen-before creature, Shadow Mewtwo. Pokkén Tournament will release in the 2nd Quarter, exclusively for Wii U.
The Last Guardian
A brand new first-party title coming to PlayStation 4, The Last Guardian follows the story of a young boy who befriends a giant bird, dog, and cat hybrid creature named Trico. The adventure is based around solving puzzles by manipulating Trico in order to get around obstacles and enemies. Amazingly, the title has been in development since 2007 and was originally aimed for a 2011 release date on the PS3, but the launch was postponed due to hardware limitations. Now The Last Guardian finally has a gameplay trailer and it looks like the game is going to be both unique and beautiful. The Last Guardian is confirmed for a 2016 release, exclusively for PS4.
An impressive 6 years after the release of the previous entry in the franchise, Crackdown 3 is set to explode onto our consoles next year. Famous for the series’ extreme physics and destructive nature,Crackdown 3 looks like it will live up to all expectations. With an engine that aims to allow everything and anything to be destroyed, the sandbox game has been an ambitious task for developers Reagent Games and is one of Microsoft’s flagship exclusives. Crackdown 3 will release in the 4th Quarter, exclusively for Xbox One.
