Wish list: Top 10 handheld games we want to see at E3

Keep dreaming
 
At Pocket Gamer, we can't wait to see what games are shown off and revealed at next week's monster gaming expo, E3. 

Sure, Mike Rose has already put a stonkingly good list of games we can't wait to get time in with at E3, but that list was missing something. Namely: ridiculous fantasising about games we want to be at E3.

We've no idea if we'll be seeing any of these and some of them are less likely to happen than a Gizmondo 2, but it's nice to dream.

Do you like to dream too? Leave us a comment and tell us which games you'd sell a kidney to see unveiled at E3...



Shenmue Collection (PS Vita)

One of the most requested returns for any franchise has to be Shenmue, and what better way to test the waters than with a Vita re-release of the first two games?

The device is powerful enough to properly realise Yu Suzuki's grand vision that appeared on the Dreamcast back in 2000, and the day-by-day narrative structure of the series would fit perfectly into the daily commute.



The Conduit (Nintendo 3DS)

High Voltage Software only showed a "tech demo" of this, so we're not 100% it's a real product, but the 3DS needs a shooter and The Conduit is the go-to franchise for Nintendo when it comes to blasting aliens with guns.

With the PlayStation chaps bragging about Burning Skies being the only fully-featured FPS on handhelds, it'd be great to see The Conduit give Resistance a run for its money.



Orgarhythm (PS Vita)

The Vita is getting a rhythm action strategy game, though not – as you might expect – a new Patapon game.

Picked up by XSEED for a western release, you play as a God that controls dancing soldiers in a mash up of Pikmin-esque real time strategising and Rez style interactive musical soundscapes.

It looks bonkers and consequently we want to see more.



Professor Layton vs Ace Attorney (Nintendo 3DS)

The only objection from us about this crossover between the adventure and puzzler franchises is that we've seen so little of it.

Set in an alternative universe to the series that spawned them, the title is being helmed by Layton developer Level-5 with assistance from Shu Takumi who spearheaded the scenario design of Ace Attorney. We can't wait, so please don't make us.



BioShock (PS Vita)

If anything a showing of BioShock Vita this year would be an exercise in appetite whetting: if it's not set in Rapture and not a port of another title, then where exactly will we be bashing in Splicer skulls and listening to melancholy Bessie Smith records?

We'd like to find out at E3... but we probably won't.



F-Zero (Nintendo 3DS)

Continually rumoured, we just know a new F-Zero is coming but we don't know when. With several companies reported to be working on a new title in the futuristic racing series, so far nothing concrete has been announced.

Since the 3DS only has Mario Kart 7 to keep gear heads happy, and because a new high speed adventure for Captain Falcon would be a perfect demonstration of the system's 3D capabilities, we reckon an announcement at this year's show would be a real crowd pleaser.



The Legend of Heroes: Zero no Kiseki Evolution (PS Vita)

Zero no Kiseki is a continuation of the Trails in the Sky branch of the Legend of Heroes series, and this Evolution version is a fully voice acted update of the release.

It would be a heck of a job to translate and re-record the hours and hours of dialogue to a high standard, which makes us think it won't happen, but we're crossing our fingers that we'll see this JRPG gem anyway.



Monster Hunter 4 (Nintendo 3DS)

This is going to be big for the 3DS. You know the score: party up with friends, forage for items, kill giant monsters, get loot.

The teaser trailer hinted at far more interactive and destructible environments, which should mix things up a bit for veteran players and make for more dynamic runs of the same areas when you revisit them.



Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward (PS Vita)

A visual novel with beautiful visual design, centred on whether or not you can trust the characters around you, made by the team behind the stunning 999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors.

Oh and it's fully voice acted, has multiple endings based on how you behave to others, is coming to both 3DS and Vita, and features a talking rabbit. Hey Chunsoft? Can we see more of this at E3? Pretty please?



Rollcage Stage 3 (PS Vita)

The time is now Studio Liverpool. The time is now.

Sad that you should mention Patapon! Probably one of my favorite series ever! I would buy a PS Vita just for this game.

I love my 3DS, so I'm really hoping for some very nice surprises to come out of E3 next week. Any kind of concrete announcements on Monster Hunter 4 (or even a UK localisation of MH3) or F-Zero would be super-awesome!

As for some proper pie-in-the-sky, never-gonna-happen dreaming, how about something like "Super Mario 3D Galaxy" or "The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past 2" or even "Metroid 3D".

Finally, seeing as I'm in dream land right now anyway, I may as well make the most of my visit - I reckon a proper bona fide 3DS edition of one or two of my personal favourite console/PC titles would rock in stereoscopic handheld form too:

Catherine
Fez
Journey
Limbo
Lone Survivor
Portal
Super Meat Boy
Trials Evolution
Vessel

Yeah yeah, I'll have more chance by posting them to the beardy guy who wears red and loves mince pies, I know, but a guy can dream can't he!!??
