Electronic Arts To Reveal Several New Games The Day Before Tokyo Game Show

Last year at Tokyo Game Show, many were introduced to Electronic Arts’s Japan division for the first time as the publisher debuted Shonen Kininden Tsumuji, a Zelda-like puzzle-based DS game starring a young ninja boy. It appears EA will have a presence at TGS this year as well, as they’re hosting their own event, titled “Tokyo Showcase,” on the eve of the show.

 

EA plan to make “several all new game reveals and announcements” at the event, games blog Joystiq reports. Last year, EA seemed keen on breaking into the Japanese market, so we’re rather curious to see whether or not that plan has changed at all over the past year, considering the cold reception Tsumuji was met with upon release in that market.

 

Perhaps this event will be where we finally hear further news of the horror game collaboration between Shinji Mikami and Goichi Suda?

    hopefully that new horror game by Suda 51 and Shinji Mikami :)

    EDIT: I was beaten by the article itself! still that’s something I’m really interested on.

      Tell me about it. I think I’m more eager to find out about that game than any other upcoming title, and have been for months.

      Also, Grasshopper Manufacture has not-so-subtly hinted on their Facebook page that the game will be unveiled some time this fall, so I think its presence at TGS – and this EA event – is all but inevitable.

    I just think that since EA is more of an American based company any n all game developed by EA Japan shud come here also. *wink wink*

    Well since Funimation has announced that they’ll be teaming up with Bioware and EA to do a Dragon Age anime and it’s reported the anime will get a theatrical release according to ANN.

    I hope it means the game itself will get a Japanese release. I can imagine how many Japanese gamers really want to play this game really bad. Also, I hope Mass Effect 2 will get a Japanese release soon, I know the first one did so well in Japan that it got Xbox Platinum Collection.

    Not impressed. This company hasnt published a single interesting title since the mega drive days. Marketing millions dont help making decent games.
