The Game Awards: Pre-Show World Premieres Include Switch Rhythm Game

The Game Awards kicked the evening off with several teasers and trailers. You can check them all out here.

Prior to the official kick-off of the annual video game celebration The Game Awards, fans and attendees got first-looks at several new games and a surprise announcement.

Sayonara Wild Hearts

The evening kicked off with the reveal trailer for a new Nintendo Switch Rhythm game from Simogo titled Sayonara Wild Hearts. The trailer gave a brief look at some of the characters but didn't offer any other information about the game other than that it should be available sometime in 2019.

Journey to the Savage Planet

The second early announcement was for a game from a brand new studio. Canadian company Typhoon Studios, along with 505 Games, Epic Games, and the Makers Fund, revealed their sci-fi adventure game Journey to the Savage Planet.

While the devs don't plan to show much in the way of gameplay until next year, they did explicitly state it is not a battle royale or survivial game.

The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe

Possibly one of the biggest surprises among the announcements at The Game Awards was from the developer of The Stanley Parable. Five years after the game originally launched on PC, it is now coming to consoles.

It won't be a direct port, however. Instead, it will be an Ultra Deluxe version containing new endings and content along with the base game.

Among Trees

Another unexpected reveal was from self-described micro-studio FJRD Interactive. Their first game, Among Trees, is a survival adventure game slated to come to early access on Steam next year.

Not a lot is known about the gameplay, but the graphics are definitely eye-catching.
