219w 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.
219w ago - Today Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared a TGS 2009 on EA bringing Tetris and Sudoku to PSP Minis.
To quote: Tokyo Game Show hasn't quite kicked off yet, but that didn't stop EA from showing off their wares to press.
With the PSPgo now just a week from nestling into gamers' pockets worldwide, I caught up with Mayumi Koyanagi to ask about EA's plans for minis. While Tetris and Sudoku have already been announced, Koyanagi confirmed that EA has more in development.
Now as far as Tetris and Sudoku are concerned, both work pretty much as you'd expect. Fortunately, they take advantage of the PSP's display for the highest resolution versions of these classics that I've yet seen. You can see that for yourself next week.
221w ago - As the Tokyo Game Show nears its opening for this year, Sony Japan appears to be teasing Internet users with a mysterious site which is believed to be related to be a PS3 game.
The teaser site has a pixelated smiley face at the bottom-right corner (pictured below) that leads you to various Japanese Web sites after being clicked multiple times.
While the Web sites you a led to are still of unknown purpose, we should be able to find the answer to these teasers at TGS on September 17th, 2009.
To quote: "There is not much on the teaser page other than a strange smiley face. Clicking on it multiple times will open his mouth. He will eventually let out a scream and you will be redirected to random web sites that might somehow be connected to the game.
It looks like the project will be revealed on September 17th."
223w ago - The Tokyo Game Show is the biggest gaming convention in Japan. Many Japanese companies use it as an opportunity it to give the latest updates on their video games in addition to making new game announcements.
Capcom is already teasing what they will be revealing at Tokyo Game Show 2009, to quote:
"Hard at work on Tokyo Game Show plans. Several new games to be announced in Japan, lots of new content for LP2, TvC, DR2. Exciting!"
So it looks like they may be unveiling new games at the convention in addition to showing new content for Dead Rising 2, Lost Planet 2 and Tatsunoko vs. Capcom.
The Tokyo Game Show 2009 will be held from September 24 to the 27.
268w ago - Per Jeff Rubenstein (Social Media Manager) via PS Blog today:
Ever since I've returned from Tokyo, I've been bombarded with questions of "How was it???"
In a word: awesome. But it's kind of difficult to describe the overwhelming hugeness of Tokyo (that's what the Travel Channel is for). As far as Tokyo Game Show is concerned - yeah, I can take that on.
Now I know many of you have been to shows such as PAX, The Old E3, E for All, or something smaller or more regional. TGS is much bigger. So with camera in hand, I tried to share with you the scope of TGS 08, as well as to show you what we had at our booth.
Tokyo Game Show *is* open to the public, and the 2009 edition will take place in September. Start saving your Yen now.
