DualShockers’ WeebCast Episode 12: Japanese Games Missing at E3 2018

E3 2018 was full of relevant Japanese games, but there were quite a few that were expected to appear, and didn't: I'm looking at you, Square Enix.

July 2, 2018

E3 2018 has come and gone. While it was no Tokyo Game Show, it’s doubtless that a ton of great Japanese games was showcased. Yet, there are many that were expected to make an appearance, but were missing in action.

Of course, the big one was the Final Fantasy VII Remake, but there are many other examples, from Left Alive to the eternally MIA Deep Down (ok… that one wasn’t exactly expected). Today we discuss some of these titles, and when we can possibly expect to see or hear more about them.

As usual, Please keep in mind that this podcast is still in an experimental phase. Constructive criticism and suggestions are absolutely welcome and encouraged, so do leave them in the comments below. You can also let us know which themes you’d like to see covered in upcoming episodes.

Now, without further ado, you can listen to the DualShockers’ Weebcast below, either on YouTube or Soundcloud. You can also listen on iTunes if you so wish. In case you missed it, you can also check out the previous episode, and hear whether anime games can be good or are destined to be mediocre forever.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
