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!
gaming isn't a hobby.. it's a lifestyle. (26 minutes ago)
I can't play VR. I have severe simulation sickness. (2 Hours ago)
@KORNdog: Just stop with 'new hobby'. It makes you sound like a snob. I love gaming. I'm just tired of the rehash and playing it safe. (2 Hours ago)
Death Stranding will probably be more generic than you think. Yes the trailers are weird, but it'll probably just be a third-person survival (2 Hours ago)
you're never going to get a bunch of original game ideas these days. may i suggest VR though, it might be the game changer you're looking for. otherwise new hobby seems like your best bet. (3 Hours ago)
they have zombies...that's kind of where the comparisons start and end. it has more in common with last of us but then that's linear and more stealth then shooter. (3 Hours ago)
@droezelke: i'm pretty sure every game will feel like every other game when you think something like days gone is the same thing as dying light. lol (3 Hours ago)
