Microsoft is trying to prove once again that they are very serious about Japan, and this time they had quite a few interesting announcements about upcoming Xbox 360 games. Many thanks to Jonnyram for his realtime reporting from the press conference.
First of all, a lot of japanese publishers are signed up for Xbox Live Arcade content: Konami, Hudson, Namco and SNK are listed. Pacman and Galaga are almost ready.
Namco then announced the future release of Culdcept Saga for Xbox 360, playable online. Imagine a strange mix between a board game and a RPG.
Sakaguchi then announced that Blue Dragon would be released at the end of the year in Japan. Lost Odyssey will have a playable demo in Autumn, and be fully released in 2007. Cry On will be released much later.
Square-Enix then announced Project Sylph, a shooter they will publish, developed by Game Arts. 360 Exclusive.
Finally Microsoft announced they would be publishing another big RPG, this time developed by Tri Ace.
A Lot of new trailers and videos were shown, but it looks like people were not allowed to film. Wait & See!
@Melmoth: Sorry, Galaxy 2 is the one i'm referring to. (1 Hour ago)
found some article about it. Insomniac claiming nintendo stole the idea. guess we'll never know. But like apple used to be. Someone else might have done it first, but they did it right. (1 Hour ago)
@GriftGFX: A mainstream gamer is different from globally mainstream. They were going after grandma's and grandpa's with the wii gimmick and thought the wiiU would do the same with its tablet gimmick. (1 Hour ago)
It's going to be friggin' amazing. (1 Hour ago)
