7 Games From E3 2016 You Probably Haven’t Heard Of

Furi (Matt Espineli)
Fans of Japanese-made action games will find a lot to like about Furi; it showcases a level of tension and fast-paced action seen in games like Devil May Cry, Bayonetta, and God Hand. Its premise is simple: you play as a nameless silver-haired swordsman who must fight his way out of imprisonment, facing off against a gauntlet of deadly bosses.
Furi's standout quality is its fast and frenetic combat, which is tight and nuanced, but elegantly simple. It's an eclectic combination of both hack-and-slash games and shoot 'em ups, challenging you at any moment in a fight to dodge a barrage of projectiles or test your reflexes in tense melee battles. The game also sports a striking visual style, featuring character designs by Afro Samurai creator Takashi Okazaki. Furi’s stylish and thrilling action is shaping up to be a great new addition to its genre, and we can't wait to play more of it once it launches for PS4 and PC sometime in July.
