The Xbox conference is over in Japan and a hot press release from the event reveals a truckload of unannounced games. We’ll start with something that has been announced, Virtual On: Oratorio Tangram Ver. 5.66. It’s coming out next week on April 29 along with Banjo-Tooie.
Lingering in development, but scheduled to come out this year are three Xbox Live Arcade games from Square Enix. You already heard about Yosumin Live. 0 Day Attack on Earth, a multiplayer shooting game, and Project Cube, a multiplayer action game are now on our radar. SNK will port The King of Fighters 2002 Unlimited Match (yes, this was just released on the PS2), Garou: Mark of the Wolves, and develop The King of Fighters: Sky Stage — a shooting game of some sort. Interesting! Wait a second…. where’s Metal Slug 7? SNK announced it at TGS 2008, but it’s missing from the line up which stretches into 2010.
