220w ago - Capcom announced today that two titles on display at the 2009 Tokyo Game Show will be coming to North America and Europe in 2010.
New Capcom titles Sengoku BASARA Samurai Heroes and Ghost Trick (working title for North America and Europe), displayed to the Japanese public for the first time in Tokyo, will be making the transition to western gamers next year.
To quote from the Press Release: Sengoku BASARA Samurai Heroes, the latest in Capcom's popular samurai action series, makes it first appearance on both the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system and Wii.
Set during a tumultuous period of Japanese history, Sengoku BASARA Samurai Heroes allows players to take up the swords of more than a dozen fierce samurai warriors in huge battles against hundreds of opponents. Players will be able to unlock playable characters, as well as supporting generals who will make it easier to command and lead armies with the ultimate goal of re-writing history to rule all of 16th century Japan.
The action is fast-paced and stylish, taking combat cues from producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi's other big series, Devil May Cry. The game's main campaign will be the same on both gaming platforms, with the addition of online co-op for the PlayStation 3.
274w ago - The latest sales figures show that Afrika managed second spot in the weekly software sales for Japan. However, the PS3 didn't even manage to break five digits selling just 9,775 units in the week which was WAY behind the Wii's 35,755 weekly sales.
Conclusion? Afrika is not a system seller, at least in Japan...
To quote: The rest of the top ten was mostly older games. Wii Fit took fifth place with 31,134 units, and was followed by, Inazuma Eleven (Level-5, DS, 29,245), Battlefield Bad Company (Electronic Arts, PS3, 25,603), Dragon Quest V (Square Enix, DS, 23,389), Phantasy Star Portable (Sega, PSP, 23,106), and Mario Kart Wii (Nintendo, Wii, 22,621). Of these, Battlefield was new, although the PS3 version trailed the 360 version's June release.
In hardware, DS Lite was at the top once again, pushing 56,439 units. This was way ahead of the PSP's 41,664 units and the Wii's 35,755 units.
The PS3 got close to five digits, but didn't quite make the cut, finishing with 9,775 units for the week. Below it were PS2 at 8,810 units and Xbox 360 at 3,124 units.
