News from the PlayStation Premier event in Tokyo
As we heard from Kojima-san at last week's E3 keynote, he is showing a real demo of MGS4 in Tokyo today.
While we wait for any video footage we can get our hands on let's wrap up the rest of the news from today's PlayStation Premier press event.
First up, we found out after the demo that a new Metal Gear Solid title is coming our way! Kojima-san announced they are producing a PS3 version of the online game that was included in MGS3 Subsistence. It looks like they will show this at the MGS 20th Anniversary Party next week in Tokyo.
Tekken 6 is announced as a full online title. We know that we are going to get an updated Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection title on the PS Store soon that will provide online battles, so this isn't a great shock.
News from the floor is that Final Fantasy XIII is only 13% complete at this time! But that's ok, since Final Fantasy Versus XIII is supposedly less than 2% complete, so in comparison they're storming ahead.
Grand Turismo 5 Prologue, as announced at E3, is supposed to be arriving in October.
White Knight Story will be playable at this year's Tokyo Game Show which is being held in September.
And my favourite news of the day - LocoRoco for the PS3 is on the way. Slated for release via the PS Store in the near future (it is 95% complete) the tentatively titled "Buu Buu Cocoreccho! by LocoRoco" will feature over 200 LocoRoco characters and full use of the SixAxis as its control mechanism.
Check back soon for the MGS4 demo video assuming I can get my grubby mitts on it!
