E3 2017: Ubisoft reveal Beyond Good and Evil 2, a prequel

Ubisoft revealed a trailer for the upcoming Beyond Good and Evil 2 and, upon first viewing, it was certainly a weird experience. The opening sees an all-too-realistic-looking human/pig hybrid talking to a cocky monkey. That in itself sets the tone of the game. 15 years in the making, Beyond Good and Evil 2 takes place before the birth of Jade, the protagonist of the first game. Beyond Good and Evil was a bit of a flop, according to Michel Ancel, and so Ubisoft weren’t too keen on a sequel. He had originally intended for the first game to be much more substantial than what we got, and was hoping for an entire trilogy to be made. Now that is looking more likely, thanks to this sequel/prequel.
