Displayed in Japan: Five Fresh Playstation 3 Games
Endless Saga—The PS3’s first massively multiplayer online role-playing game comes from WEBZEN, a Korean developer with a long history of this stuff. The trailer revealed little—just a butterfly fluttering by a hot iron-armored maiden.
Ni-Oh—An action game from the developer behind Koei’s Romance of the Three Kingdoms strategy epics.
Project Force—Pilot a mech in a destructible city in this sim from the makers of the Armored Core games.
Dead or Alive 4—Tecmo is readying DOA4, DOA Xtreme 2 (more than just volleyball!), and DOA Code: Cronus.
Gundam—This squad shooter based on the white-hot robo-combat series will likely sell big in Japan.
Genji—A PS3 sequel to a Japan-only samurai slash-em-up. Will it live up to the promise of its flashy CG movie?
And Keep Your Eye On...
Lair—Developer Factor 5 is known for eking every last processor cycle out of Nintendo systems with its Star Wars: Rogue Squadron games. Lair, the American developer’s first ever Sony title, is a dragon-filled fantasy shooter, and it looks hot.
