With E3 2014 so close to kicking off, Sega has announced the slate of games it plans to have on show during the event, and it consists of a lot of Sonic and the most promising Alien game in years.

Unlike fellow third-party publishers Electronic Arts and Ubisoft, Sega won't be hosting a press conference of its own. Regardless, it will have a handful of its upcoming games on display. More specifically, we'll be seeing Alien: Isolation (Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC), Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric (Wii U), Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal (3DS), and Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd (PS3 and PlayStation Vita).

It's not a huge number of games for a company that used to have a much larger presence at the annual conference. But with it not making sports games or hardware like it once did, the company has less to show, although it is curious that only one of these four games is actually developed internally by Sega.

Keep in mind, these plans don't preclude Sega from still making a surprise announcement of some sort--I've got my fingers crossed for word on a Western release of Phantasy Star Online 2, and others are no doubt hoping for a new Yakuza. For now, though, these are the only Sega games we'll definitely be seeing this coming week.

E3 kicks off on Monday with press conferences from Microsoft, EA, Ubisoft, and Sony, followed by Nintendo's pre-recorded show on Tuesday. You'll be able to watch all of this and follow along with the week's happenings right here on GameSpot.
