E3 Final Day Wrapup: Some stuff you may have missed

Today is the third day of E3. All the major announcements are out of the way and everything is in wind down with the biggest showings now being some additional gameplay nuggets trickling down from the show floor.

With the giant titles constantly looming over the horizon many smaller announcements got overshadowed or completely missed. I was looking for a good location to find some of the lesser known titles that but couldn't find anything so I decided to compile a list myself.

Please note I'm certain there are plenty of titles I missed here don't take this as definitive just informative. Many of the titles also have gaf threads (which I did my best to search for and link to) for actual discussion of the individual titles. Also what I consider obscure and you consider obscure may differ. With few exceptions if you saw it in one of the major press conferences it won't show up here.

So now here's a list of games and announcements from the last few days you may have missed.

7th Dragon III Code VFD

Any news is great news for us 7th Dragon fans, we honestly never expected to see this series released in the West. So the excitement is high surrounding the new E3 2016 trailer for 7th Dragon III Code: VFD. The game will be releasing exclusively on Nintendo 3DS next month July 12, 2016. Here is the publishers description. https://youtu.be/k33Dld-V5pw

Neptune vs Sega Hard Girls

When it comes to anthropomorphic consoles in our games, JRPG fans know who our goddess and goddess candidates are. We’ve seen eight games in the Hyperdimension Neptunia series by this point, after all. Neptune, Noire, Blanc, Vert, Nepgear, Uni, Rom, and Ram are household names in the right circles. Superdimension Neptune VS Sega Hard Girls is increasing our pantheon when it comes to the PlayStation Vita this year.

Thanks for this. It's easy to miss out on smaller things due to all the noise. Exile's End looks great.

XSEED Games are releasing the game this summer digitally for the PS4, PS Vita and Wii U.

I had thought it would be a given that we'd get another trailer for the FFVII Remake (not even a demo, just another trailer), so it's really weird that we got nothing. Did Square ever make a comment on it?

Im surprised they even showed FFXII honestly. Seemed like SE was laser-focused on FFXV for 2016

7TH DRAGON III
YESYESYESYESYES
It totally deserves such a good release. 7th Dragon 2020 was an amazing game and its a shame it never came over officially. Definitely one of the bigger highlights for me. It has such awesome gameplay and is very Etrian Odyssey-esque. Yuzo Koshiro's music in it is golden, the gameplay has some level of emphasis on buffs and debuffs, the animations are nice and fluid, and the games just look really good. I really hope you all give it a try; its an AMAZING game.

Also really interested in Genkai Tokki: Seven Pirates. I genuinely like Compile Heart games and love fanservice games, so that's right up my ally. I do hope Compile Heart gives it a PC release like they do their Neptunia games, but either way I'll definitely be grabbing it. I wonder if IFI will bring it to the West at all....

Also Gal Gun is kinda neat too.
What's up with all these great looking anime type games?! I don't even know where to start :)
If you like Etrian Odyssey:
START WITH 7TH DRAGON
Its much more a standard JRPG than Etrian Odyssey so its easier for people to get into if they aren't familiar with the dungeon crawlers but it has a lot of what makes those games great.
