    Lost Ember is definitely one of the more visually stunning indie games at this years E3.

    For those that missed it, this years E3 was full of some awesome indie games that will releasing this year. One epic indie in particular really stood out to us by the name of Lost Ember, by Mooneye Studios. The release trailer was so mesmerizing that we just had to find out everything we could. Lost Ember will be releasing on July 19th this year, and will available on PC, Xbox One and PS4. It will also eventually be coming to the Nintendo Switch.

    A bit about Lost Ember…

    Lost Ember is a third person adventure game where you get to play as a variety of animals. The main character is a wolf, with a very helpful and wise companion to guide him. This companion is an ancient spirit with all knowledge of the past needed to guide the wolf on a quest to a legendary discovery, what happened to all the people in the world.

    This is one post apocalyptic title that stands out above all others, however. You will be able to explore an amazing and thriving 3D world with the ability to transform into multiple animals. This ability will literally give you a birds-eye view, or help you see what’s under the sea as a fishey. With a rich and deep storyline to make each moment more memorable than the last, Lost Ember truly stole the show at this years E3 indie showcase.

    Way To The Woods is a beautifully hand-drawn 3D adventure indie game.

    At this years E3 presentation it was revealed that the gorgeous indie title “Way To The Woods” will be releasing next year. Created by solo developer and artist, Anthony Tan, WTTW is an adorable game about a lovely deer and her little fawn. They partake on a grand and perilous journey to find their way back home, to the woods. Only a trailer was played at the convention so far, so we did our research to get you the scoop on this upcoming charming and wholesome game.

    The health system in Way to the Woods though…

    As if the graphics and theme of the game aren’t cute enough, the health system literally revolves around staying close to your fawn. If for some reason you are overcome by the threats that are presented on your way to the woods, the world will begin to grow darker. This is sign that you are in too much danger.

    You must then return to your little one, so that your light may be replenished. That is what is offered in lieu of a health bar. A health system doesn’t really get more heart-felt than that! The games developer wanted to make sure that the players are able to remain immersed in the amazing world that lay before them, and avoiding any UI is the perfect way to achieve exactly that.

    A bit about Way to the Woods…

    Being that it is possibly the cutest game ever made, we absolutely can’t wait to get our hands on it! Unfortunately, we will have to wait until next year for that to happen. The games graphics are all hand drawn by the developer himself, which certainly reflects in the amazing detail and wonderfully charming aesthetic presented throughout the game. WTTW is a third person adventure game, with whimsical puzzles and cute interactions all along the way. Way To The Woods will be releasing on both PC and consoles.

    For more up-to-date information on Way to the Woods, you can follow Anthony Tan on Twitter by clicking here.

    Today, June 13th, 2019, is the last day for E3 and we here at myPotatoGames have done a deep-dive into live-streams and hashtags for very promising games that you, the viewers at home, might not have seen. Below we get a closer look at new trailers and announcements from games we’ve never covered before and are excited to play.

    Lost Words: Beyond the Page

    Modus Games had their booth (#2513) set up in the South Hall at this year’s E3 and were showcasing some of the games they have published: Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince, Lost Words: Beyond the Page, Ary and the Secret of Seasons, and Bear With Me: The Lost Robots. One game stood out to us and that was Lost Words, a multi-award winning narrative game set inside a diary. The game is developed by Sketchbook Games and Fourth State and will be releasing December 2019 on PS4, Xbox One and Steam, which you can wishlist right here.

    About the Game

    Lost Words is a 2D narrative adventure game where players move words to solve puzzles. The game features a story written by Rhianna Pratchett and ties the narrative into the gameplay in an unusual way; having the player running on and interacting with words to solve puzzles.

    Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin

    Xseed Games had their booth (#4700) set up in the West Hall and were showcasing the following games: Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin, BurgerTime Party, Granblue Fantasy: Versus, Heroland, Akiba’s Trip: Hellbound & Debriefed, Rune Factory 4 Special, and SENRAN KAGURA Peach Ball. We here at myPotatoGames wanted to show you Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin, developed by Edelweiss, and combines side-scrolling action with deep crafting and farming simulation. The game is releasing on PS4 and PC this winter along with a newly announced Nintendo Switch version.

    About the Game

    Players take on the role of Sakuna, a proud yet lonely harvest goddess who is banished to a dangerous island with a group of outcast humans. As she tames the island by defeating demons in gorgeous, mysterious natural settings, she will also find a home in a mountain village. This is where she will prove herself worthy of her title by harvesting rice and bettering the lives of humans. Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin has an emphasis on the artistry of cultivating rice, and the craft behind the agriculture.

    Sky: Children of Light

    Sky: Children of Light was live from the stage of the E3 Coliseum today and we thought it looked so beautiful! Developed by thatgamecompany (the creators of Journey), this social adventure game is releasing on mobile devices for free this Fall. Furthermore, the game is getting an even earlier release for iOS this July which you can pre-order now. Other platforms such as PC and consoles will follow thereafter.

    About the Game

    Join others to uncover mysteries of the desolate kingdom and team up to help recover and return the stars to their constellations. The game can be played with up to 8 players who can join a session through their smartphone or tablet. The co-founder discussed about how he wanted to make a game about friendship and compassion in hopes of creating a heartwarming online community where you need to collaborate. He also likens the world to a park with amazing views.

    As always, stay tuned with us here for the latest E3 news as the day isn’t over yet! We’ll be posting about everything we know on Animal Crossing and more games you won’t want to miss!

    Nintendo saved us a most delightful surprise at the end of their Nintendo Direct for E3 2019. They announced that a new Legend of Zelda game is in development and it’s a full sequel to Breath of the Wild for Nintendo Switch. See below for some awesomely creepy screenshots of the trailer.

    What we see in their sneak-peek trailer is Zelda (with short hair) and Link riding down to some caverns beneath Hyrule Castle. It appears that the Malice, a poisonous substance unleashed by Calamity Ganon, is back again and coming from a most sinister source. We see a mummified ancient character awakening with the help of an ethereal green hand. Afterward, we pan out to a rumbling earthquake and Hyrule Castle beginning to rise.

    All we can do is speculate for now as to what exactly this new story will be about but it is most definitely in the same open-world with the same beautiful graphics from the first Breath of the Wild game back in 2017. Normally Zelda games don’t get direct sequels but this one in particular is regarded as one of the best games of all time.

    We here at myPotatoGames are incredibly excited for this sequel and will continue to keep you updated as we receive more news. For now you can check out our article on Link’s Awakening which also got a new trailer from Nintendo’s Direct.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate gets some heroes from Dragon Quest XI as playable characters.

    Great news for both Smash Bros. fans and Dragon Quest fans. Announced at the Nintendo Direct for this years E3 conference, it looks like our favorite heroes from Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age will be added to the already impressive line-up in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Now you’ll have the ability to fight as up to four new characters from the popular series.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate character list seems to be ever expanding. The original line-up began with 69 characters, and two more were quickly added ad DLC. Smash Bros. has always been there delivering us the ability to play as our favorite classic Nintendo characters, and pit them against each other in a fight to K.O. Ultimate now allows us to play as such epic characters as Cloud Strife from Final Fantasy VII and Ridley from the Alien series. Now the list looks that much bigger with the inclusion of possibly 4 more characters, all from Dragon Quest XI.

    Dragon Quest Hero DLC

    Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age was exceptionally well received, praised for its visuals and classic turn based combat. It has stood side by side with the Final Fantasy series for quite some time, so it makes sense that these popular characters would finally join in the great brawl. Check out our other article for the announcement of another new pair of characters joining Smash Bros.

    Update: One of the characters is from Dragon Quest XI but the other three are from other games of the Dragon Quest series. Together they are collectively known as The Hero.

    • Dragon Quest III: The Seeds of Salvation
    • Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen
    • Dragon Quest VII: Journey of the Cursed King

    Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age Definitive Edition

    New Features Added

    • Experience the expanded storyline
    • More monsters to ride
    • More character stories
    • Ability to speed through battles
    • Travel to past Dragon Quest worlds (in 8-bit)

    The game now has a firm release date of September 27th, 2019 for the Nintendo Switch and PS4. Speaking of the Dragon Quest series, Dragon Quest Builders 2 coming out July 12th, 2019 will be receiving a new demo June 27th so stay tuned with us here at myPotatoGames.

    During today’s Nintendo Direct at E3 2019 in Los Angeles, Nintendo revealed some new features for the upcoming Luigi’s Mansion 3 coming to Nintendo Switch this year.

    Luigi is invited to a luxurious hotel with Mario, Peach, and the others. But of course, not long after Luigi arrives, things take a dark turn for the gang. The other guests turn out to be ghosts and they are rather aggressive! Luigi has to save everyone and face every challenge thrown at him. There are many floors to this hotel with each one having uniquely themed designs, ghosts, and puzzles. For example, the floors range from a medieval castle to a museum/production studio!

    Luigi now has a new Poltergust G-00 to take care of these enemies with some new capabilities. These capabilities are: Slam (slam the ghost to the ground), Suction Shot (attach the plunger to stuff and pull – effective against ghosts with shields), and Burst (a powerful air-pressure release to get rid of multiple ghosts at once). It should be pretty satisfying to gain experience t unlock these new abilities.


    The game will receive a cooperative mode which includes the best invention from the lab yet; a green blob that is Gooigi. You can alternate between the two to use both their skills. Gooigi can slip through metal fences and walk through spikes. However, Gooigi and water do not mix so stay away from those bathrooms. You can also pass the joy-con to a friend so you can both play at the same time in the main story; one is regular Luigi, the other as Gooigi.

    Another new feature is the ScareScraper which offers offline and online play for up to 8 players. Catch all ghosts before the timer runs out or find lost Toads throughout many procedurally generated floors.

    The game did not get a specific release date but is still scheduled to come out later this year. Stay tuned with us here or follow us on Twitter for more Nintendo and E3 2019 updates all week long. See below for some gameplay video with Nintendo Treehouse.
