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!
@Tiz: I youtubed it, those DLCs seems to tell how Gabriel became Dracula.. And i agree i hope Alucard is way different, faster and more stylish to play as. He has a sword so thats my primary :P (19 minutes ago)
@Sath: It's a good thing you didn't. No new moves, weapons, skins etc. Just Gabriel on two extra missions. Hopefully Alucard moves like a boss and is different enough to justify it. (30 minutes ago)
@Tiz: Never played them. But that link mentions no Pc version so i guess i have to wait longer. (36 minutes ago)
@Sath: It should be better than that Reverie DLC or whatever. That DLC broke me. (36 minutes ago)
@Tiz: Ah, 25th, wish we got an trailer soon. (44 minutes ago)
