Bandai-Namco needs to plug a hole in their leaking ship because all of their planned surprises for E3 this weekend were spoiled by several posters on ResetEra. The leaks are extremely credible, lining up with what professionals expected from the publisher and including pieces art from each game. Here are the just-shared announcements

Martin – author of The New York Times best-selling fantasy series, A Song of Ice and Fire. Danger and discovery lurk around every corner in FromSoftware’s largest game to-date. Hidetaka Miyazaki, President and Game Director of FromSoftware Inc. known for directing critically-acclaimed games in beloved franchises including Armored Core, Dark Souls, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. George R.R.

An upgraded version of the PS3 game developed by Hideo Miyazaki’s own Studio Ghibli. Less detail on this one, but it’s expected to release this Fall on PlayStation 4, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
Tales of Arise
On the planet Dahna, reverence has always been given to Rena, the planet in the sky, as a land of the righteous and divine. Stories handed down for generations became truth and masked reality for the people of Dahna. For 300 years, Rena has ruled over Dahna, pillaging the planet of its resources and stripping people of their dignity and freedom. Our tale begins with two people, born on different worlds, each looking to change their fate and create a new future.
Featuring a new cast of characters, updated combat, and classic Tales of gameplay mechanics, experience the next chapter in the world-famous Tale of series, Tales of Arise.
Chances are this is all we’re getting from Bandai-Namco this weekend, though we’ll probably get more details about the three titles during E3. In the meantime, these leaks only invite more anticipation and speculation.
