It seems like XSEED Games is thinking along those same lines, as it's bringing a new Senran Kagura game based around squirt guns to the West this summer.

I was able to sit down with Senran Kagura producer Kenichiro Takaki at E3 last week to discuss the franchise and its future. Head inside to see what he had to say!

Last week, during Nintendo's E3 2017 Spotlight, the company announced that a new mainline Pokémon title is in development for Nintendo Switch. This, of course, would be the first main series Pokémon RPG to be released on a home console instead of a handheld system. So far, however, Nintendo hasn't released any information about the game. In a recent interview with Bloomberg, Reggie Fils-Aime was asked about Pokémon Switch, and he confirmed that the game will be "a traditional find, battle, train type experience," in the vein of previous handheld Pokémon titles.

As the title is also being developed by an entirely new team instead of Retro Studios, many are cautiously optimistic about Metroid Prime 4's future gameplay and release date.

Following Hideo Kojima's departure from Konami, fans of the legendary developer's Metal Gear franchise were understandably worried for the series' future. Konami soon came to the rescue with Metal Gear Survive, but the reaction to the new, zombie-based direction of the game did not receive much positive reception. Even Kojima himself was quoted as wondering "Why would zombies be in Metal Gear?"

We don't know if this reaction had any part in this, but Konami has now announced that Survive has been delayed to early next year, with the intention of adding additional polish to the game. We'll have to wait a bit longer to try out this new Metal Gear experience for ourselves and see whether or not it deserves to bear that title.
