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.

With a 2009 release date a possibility, you can expect Sony to give a huge blowout of game's features at the Tokyo Game Show, including the exciting head-tracking mode. Gran Turismo 5 is expected to be a top-seller for the PlayStation 3; so Sony should be giving the full spotlight to their exclusive first-party title.
PSP Go Although it may be hard to imagine, the PSP is more popular in Japan than the PlayStation 3. With the launch of the PSP Go quickly closing in, Sony must make a strong last impression at the Tokyo Game Show. Although the software lineup will no doubt be strong (with Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker and Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep leading the way), Sony must convince prospective buyers that the new PSP model...
