TGS 2008 Preview

TGS (Tokyo Game Show) 2008 starts next week, October 9 through October 12. For the uninitiated, this is one of the big three public gaming expositions, with the other two being E3 for North America and Leipzig GC for Europe.


  • Nine previously unannounced first/second party (Sony published) PS3 titles, will be unveiled. I’d imagine some of these will be smaller titles, but I’d expect a few big ones. The long anticipated Team ICO title is widely expected (Sony exec Mr. Yoshida recently said that it would be shown “soon”)
  • Two third-party PS3 exclusive titles from Konami and Irem will be unveiled and playable at the show.
  • Nobi-Nobi Boy, from the original creator of Katamari Damacy, will be shown in non-playable video form. When this game was shown last year, this took the prize for the most obscene and buzz-killing preview footage.
  • White Knight Chronicles, the hotly anticipated PS3 RPG from Level 5, will be shown. We haven’t heard anything from this title in quite a while and since Level 5 has recently said that this game will ship on 12/25 in Japan, we can expect a near-final preview build. They claim have some major new features to show.

    Hopefully Level 5 has more to show than WKC. I’d love Sony to announce Dark Cloud 3. I’m hoping for a whoie bunch of JRPG’s. Strategy RPG’s. The Ps3 is sorely lacking in that department.

    Actually not only jrpgs. Almost any kind of rpg would be great. And I also would like more adventure-ish games as well.

    Hey Fleakitten, it appears that none of your links work, except the very last one.
