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!
They just didn't bother including it in their demo footage because it's clearly as boring as it sounds. (10 Hours ago)
@Phaethon360: actually i wasn't. There is a mode other then the "you have been invaded" cat and mouse mode, where you JUST follow someone. (10 Hours ago)
@digi_matrix: I agree. I like using the environment and hacking other players. Also what Korn was trying to say is "cat & mouse" gameplay. (10 Hours ago)
@digi_matrix: debatable. One mode looks fun. The other look "different" but ultimately boring. I hear there is a mode where you litterally just follow another play. Exciting stuff. (12 Hours ago)
