The biggest (and strangest) moments of E3 2021

E3 2021 has wrapped, and it's safe to say that it was a fairly up and down show.

Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope officially revealed following eShop leak

Today's Ubisoft Forward sort of served as the kick off for E3 2021, and though the company spent most of the show covering games that have already been announced - or, in the case of Rainbow Six: Siege and Assassin's Creed Valhalla, games that are already out - the show did have a couple of new announcements.

Ubisoft Originals branding could mean big changes are coming

Ubisoft has announced that it's rolling out new branding for all of the games it makes in-house.
