Those are definitely Team Ninja designs... I wonder how much if at all Itagaki worked on these games before he left.

He supposedly had 2 other games (Code Cronos, Project Progressive) under development.

[PS3] White Knight Chronicles [Level 5]
Online co-op officially announced. 16player lobby, 4player coop. Seamless integration between storymode and online mode. Sounds like matchmaking is done via the game and not PSN, but not 100% certain about this. Trades between players possible, but details not given.
Wait how does this work exactly?

disappointment at lack of Dissidia goodness =/

I'm not sure why you would expect Dissidia news to be in Famitsu first. It's always in Jump first, followed by Famitsu. There was no Dissidia in Jump this week, so there's no Dissidia expected in Famitsu.

My understanding of the overall thing maybe hazy. But I think maybe it was 3 team Ninja games? Don't know what part that plays in overall Tecmo reveals. Could have been overall within Tecmo, but some articles poised it as TN annoucements.

Do you even have a source for this? All I know is that at the Tecmo Conference a few months back, they said that Team Ninja was working on "several games" and that the main game they've been talking about that is "for the entire world" will be revealed at TGS.

Just be glad they didn't put it in the closed mega theater.

XIII and VersusXIII :( :( :(

What do you mean? There's a playable build at the show, but the trailer's still going to be in the closed theatre. That doesn't mean they're not going to put it online though. The game comes out in Dec, I don't see why anyone is fucking whining.

Quantum Theory looks interesting, the gal looks like she's got a lightsaber. I wonder why it's PS3 only.
Because it'll appeal to the Western crowd more.

[PS3 - PSN] Spelunker [IREM]
Haven't read the article
IREM as in R-Type IREM? Is this game a shooter?

Also, can't wait to see this Quantum Theory.

EDIT: Holy snapplecakes, just seen the scans, QT looks lovely jubbly.

EDIT 2: Spelunker looks like a seriously old-school screen-by-screen platformer, like those from the C64 days, but with co-op. DO want. Gives me a Monty on the Run vibe.

Seems like Undead Knights could be one of the games then. It's 1-4 players, it's an action game, it looks really western, there are guns, etc. I guess there's one more announcement to go?
Team Ninja Developed or Tecmo?

I dunno, Famitsu doesn't give a crap about western looking PSP games, so it didn't even get a full page preview! The 3D looks pretty good though, so I guess that rules out all the other Tecmo teams. :lol

:lol Anywho, for what it's worth they did a fine job with Fatal Frame they just needed more focus and a bigger budget to broaden the portfolio. They are like the ugly step sister of Tecmo.

EDIT: C64 version looks familiar, think my friend had it.

Anyone have translations on that Quantum Theory game by Tecmo?

It looks far more like a DMC game, only darker and more gothic. It doesn't look like a Gears of War third person shooter at all but it says TPS on the scan.

I really have to hand it to Microsoft. They have done an exceedingly good job at keeping the faucets tight when it comes to TGS news leakage. This is of course counting they actually have anything new epic mega worthy to announce.

I barely know anything about Japanese developers. Is this a good thing or a bad thing?

Team Tachyon is Tecmo's other team. They make Fatal Frame and Rygar games. It has nothing to do with Team Ninja.

Gotcha. So the 3 Team Ninja games maybe still up for annoucement then it seems.
I forgot that Jin Hasegawa is now in charge of Team Ninja.
