And it’s not from Japan! Microsoft threw an Xbox Invitational event in Korea and publishers flocked to showcase their games. Activision brought Spider Man: Web of Shadows and Call of Duty: World at War to the show. Capcom displayed Resident Evil 5 and Street Fighter IV. Microsoft hauled a load of Halo Wars information which seemed to be one of the highlights and this makes sense given Korea’s love with Starcraft.
Local publishers showed off their wares too. Cyberfront Korea carried Moss’ Raiden IV and Barunson Creative had a demo of a Korean English training game. It’s called Speak Out and it has sixty scenarios where players can practice speaking English by using a headset. More can be added via downloadable content. You can compare your voice to a native speaker, take daily tests, and play some mini-games. I’m quite curious to see what the achivements are going to be for this! Speak Out isn’t the first locally developed Korean Xbox 360 game either, but it’s always interesting to see what local markets are doing.
