Tokyo Game Show 2008 certainly had a lot of cool announcements, but it was definitely all about the games this year! Featured games included offerings from Microsoft, Tecmo, and Grasshopper. So what was announced? What was confirmed? Read on!
Halo 3: Recon
Although you may have "finished the fight," it was revealed at this year's Tokyo Game Show that Halo 3: Recon would be released sometime late next year.Though originally thought to be an expansion pack, Halo 3: Recon is actually a new standalone game that will feature an entirely new main character and campaign that will take place before the events of Halo 3.
Quantum Theory is a new title that is being developed by Tecmo and has been described as Japan's answer to Western shooters like Gears of War. This title has been confirmed as being PS3-exclusive and will feature a "living tower" setting that constantly changes. Although the developers were a little reluctant to give out details, Quantum Theory has a tentative release window of "late 2009," so hopefully we will hear more about this title in the coming months.
White Knight Chronicles
Although this title was at TGS last year, an updated build was on hand at this year's show, and more details about this JRPG have emerged. The story has been revealed to be about a boy and a magical suit of armor which allows him to pursue a captured princess. Sure, it sounds a little clichéd, but this JRPG has some serious graphics and an awesome battle system to help bolster the experience. And if that wasn't enough, it was announced that White Knight Chronicles will have 4-person online multiplayer modes.
