It may not seem like it, but it has been two years since LocoRoco came out for the PSP. Fortunately, it was confirmed at TGS this year that LocoRoco 2 is going to be coming stateside in 2009. LocoRoco 2 will be improving upon its predecessor considerably, and will have several new modes, an expanded story mode, and even new characters!
Although Tekken has been a PlayStation only franchise for many years, Microsoft dropped a bombshell at this year's TGS and revealed that the game would be coming to the Xbox 360 as well as the PlayStation 3. A new multiplatform trailer was also debuted at this year's TGS and revealed the release window for this title to be Fall 2009.
No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle
The sequel to No More Heroes was announced and a subsequent teaser trailer was premiered at this year's TGS. Although there is no official release window or specific details made available yet, we can deduce from the short debut trailer that No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle will still feature Travis Touchdown as the main character, and will still sport a crazy psychedelic style. Oh, and the beam swords are back as well, but this time Travis' weapon seems to be a bit more refined.
In addition to these games, there were plenty more titles shown off at TGS that gamers can look forward to, including Resident Evil 5, Resistance: Retribution, Final Fantasy XIII, Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep, Street Fighter IV, Halo Wars, The Third Birthday, Yakuza 3, Star Ocean: The Last Hope, and InFamous.
