Mother 4 :
Mother 4 is a fan-continuation of the Mother franchise developed by Nintendo. Shigesato Itoi, creator of the original Mother series, declared that the series would not have any more installments after the releases of Mother 3 back in 2006. Mother has a huge cult-following in America, and hasn't gotten to play a new Mother game in almost 10 years. So, a team of game developers banded together in 2012 to begin production on a new high-quality Mother installment. The team has been working on the game for about 4-5 years, without endorsement from Nintendo or donations; the game is for fans of Mother, by fans of Mother. The game has been delayed many times however. The initial release date for the game was set for Jan-Feb of 2014, but then later moved to December 2014. None of these release dates were made, but the devs of the game released a gameplay trailer in early 2015. The devs then relocated the game's release to Spring 2015, then pushed it back to Summer 2015. Alas, the game is still in development, but us Mother fans cannot wait. More Details about Mother 4
Mother 4 on left, Mother 3 on right. As you can see, the devs of Mother 4 decided to stick to a similar art style that Mother 3 was done in, which is also reminiscent of Mother 1 and 2's art styles. They have done a really good job of making the games look like they come from the same franchise.
Overwatch is Blizzard's next big IP. It is the first brand-new video game world that they have developed in over 17 years, and it looks like it's going to be a grand slam. The game is a First Person Shooter featuring different characters that act as different classes for you to play as. The game is about an organization called Overwatch, whose job is to fight international crime. You, the player, must choose an Overwatch agent from the 16 available to you. With your team of six, you must defend or attack an objective to achieve victory.

Overwatch is most likely going to be the next big e-sport (electronic sport) due to the fact that it features a lot of balance and centers around team cooperation. There are a lot of characters to play and a lot of playstyles to choose from with the characters, and the metagame is just starting to take shape. With the amount of diversity in this game, there is no doubt that this game will leap right into the fray.
Overwatch releases sometime in June 2016. More details here.
