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!
isn't the best way to inspire people. Here's 17 minutes of gameplay of The Witcher 3 - Wild Hunt from various videos stitched together. [url] (52 minutes ago)
@Moonwalker: Either that or CD Projekt RED get their "marketing" act together and release at least a 10 minutes video. Clearly it's ready to be shown to the public and watching crappy Youtube videos (53 minutes ago)
@rayy: Thanks for the link. And the gameplay looks awesome. Been addictively playing the DA:Origins for weeks now, just can't stop playing it, even though it's for the 2nd time. (55 minutes ago)
Now what we also need is for that 45 minutes of new Witcher 3 footage to leak, damn. (2 Hours ago)
@rayy: So fucking awesome. Such a huuuuuuge improvement over DA2...holy shit. Yeah i will say farewell to my social life when this one releases. (2 Hours ago)
At 3:36 I love how the rogue clock himself and them assassinate someone from the back. Can't wait to play this. (3 Hours ago)
Tomorrow they are releasing a video that is focus on combat [url] (3 Hours ago)
