One game I wasn't expecting to be so into at E3 was Hyrule Warriors. I'm not a Dynasty Warriors fan, and I'm not even a committed Zelda player -- but the combination of those two franchises feels, at this moment in time, irresistible. You can even get an assist from the moon!
Japan is getting a "Treasure Box" collector's edition of the game and while I wouldn't seriously consider importing, it's looking nice. There's a scarf, a Triforce clock, and a miniature treasure chest that makes sound effects. Talk about a tried-and-true bonus item for the franchise.
I'll get one of those for my desk, one day.
