E3 is well and truly done for another year, and though most of the marquee announcements were of course made during the high-profile conferences from Sony, Microsoft, Nintendo and so on, some worthwhile reveals and tantalising tidbits did arrive elsewhere.

From release dates for upcoming games to juicy news about some of the biggest titles revealed at E3 and everything in-between, these announcements were easily missed even if they're certainly of huge interest to a large portion of gamers.

Not all of the news coming out of E3 was necessarily positive, though, so it's easy to appreciate why a few of these news items - especially a certain game being delayed into 2019 - were kept incredibly quiet. For the most part, though, they're fun announcements that probably should've been a part of the main stage shows.

It isn't easy keeping on top of everything revealed in E3 week, but fear not. Having trawled the depths of the insane E3 news cycle, these are the low-key morsels you absolutely need to know...

15. Soulcalibur VI Is Releasing October 19

A new Soulcalibur VI trailer randomly dropped by Bandai Namco during E3 week revealed that fans don't have too long to wait for the highly-anticipated fighting game, as it will release for PS4, Xbox One and PC on October 19.

The sequel will retell the story of the original game in order to "uncover hidden truths", and in typical Soulcalibur fashion, everyone's trying to get their mitts on the Soul Edge, of course.

In addition to most of the series' usual suspects returning, we know that The Witcher's Geralt of Rivia is a playable character, in what looks set to be a ludicrously entertaining addition to the franchise.
