THQ Nordic has announced a surprise showcase, set for tomorrow – 12-13 August 2022, depending on your local time zone. The show will feature an array of brand new game reveals, as well as deep dives into already-announced titles. There’ll be around 14 games on show, with 45 minutes of action guided by hosts Elle Osili-Wood and Richard Kiess.

The THQ Nordic Showcase will also be preceded by a HandyGames pre-show which will likely spotlight VR games.

So far, we already know a handful of games that will be featured during the show. The SpongeBob franchise was mentioned in a press release, so it’s likely we’ll get a firmer look at upcoming game The Cosmic Shake, and Destroy All Humans! 2, Jagged Alliance 3, and Outcast 2 were also mentioned.

As for the ’10 other titles’ being shown off, we have a few educated guesses. As recently revealed in an Amazon-assisted leak, the upcoming AEW wrestling game adaptation AEW: Fight Forever will be published by THQ Nordic. This game will likely get an official showing during the THQ Nordic showcase, possibly via the leaked Britt Baker and Tony Schiavone-starring game commercial.

Way of the Hunter, The Valiant and SpellForce: Conquest of Eo could also make an appearance. There’s also hope for the Plaion-published Gungrave G.O.R.E., which feels in desperate need of a firm release date (as of writing, it’s pencilled in for 2022).

We’ll just have to tune in to see what’s in store.
