Not known.
Could be FFXII International, XII-2, an I-mode side story game...
One picture implied there could be some things added to the western version of FFXII, so who knows.


Spoiler (Highlight to view) -
In a picture with the team and... Wosura ? I don't remember his name, fighting the big fire summon, Wosura had a Mist Knack gauge. It might be an error or something, since I don't know how it could be implented, but still.

On FFXII

It's "Wossler", but in English "Vossler". Nowwww...



Spoiler (Highlight to view) -
Of course, it can't be a sequel if you can use him, as he dies about 1/3 through the game. However, you do have him long enough for them to add a mist knack for him as an extra. I suppose they could give you more to do with him not only as a coverup for what happens to him in the story, but as a new gameplay element.

End of Spoiler



It wouldn't surprise me if the US version had some new stuff in it, as it's taking so unreasonably long to come out.

But the link you posted doesn't imply that it's an upgrade, it says it's another story. ARGHHH! I don't want to play ANOTHER FF12! But the game had enough good points (among its cripplingly bad points) to at least tempt me to pick up another one if they made a sequel.

Depending on the team making the... stuff (game or upgrade) I might very well buy it immediatly.
FFXII is the only worthwile FF with FF6, so... yeah, I may want to play another FF12.

Oh, but maybe I should finish it before I get involved in a sequel. I suddenly lost all interest in it the moment I could go the last dungeon.

According to GoNintendo, it's a sidestory for the DS

And KHII Final Mix, and here I actually believed Nomura when he said KHII was "complete" and there was no need for a Final Mix.

Yes, supposedly the side story to FF12 is going to be for the DS. Some blogger who leaked the information took back the blog very soon after leaking it... Interesting

No one can avoid Altered Beast! I'm surprised and glad to see good old Ristar the Shooting Star on that list, that was a beautiful and underrated Sonic Team game with nice music and levels that no one knew about. Great stuff.

edit: I still hold Echo the Dolphin a deep grudge, though. Maybe everyone just had more fun than I did, and then I skipped to the terrible last level by accident because its password was one letter different from level 2's.

I totally agree! Ristar was a really good gaming experience.

(Question for the masses)
How was that PS2 version of Altered Beast?

(please disregard this post if you're talking about some Altered Beast remake I don't know about)

TERRIBLE!

Wait...I think...you've probably already heard that from me. Regardless, I must say it again! It was completely awful, or at the very least completely uninspired, boring and unecessary. I didn't buy it,...so I only played it for a bit, but I have heard that it only gets more introlerable as it progresses. Not like it gets worse, but like playing it is like needing to use the bathroom and having to hold it in. As soon as you stop, you're relieved and feel better.

But then again, we have to ask the question of what someone wants from Altered Beast. If your only two qualifications are "hitting things" and "turning into monsters", then the game delivers.

Personally, I liked the first Altered Beast because it had likeable music, clothes coming off, increasingly disproportionate muscle men, silly-looking kicks and wonderful, digital voices.

Hudson has a few games for the Wii as well, a flying action thing, a fishing thing, an action puzzle thing, and a bomberman thing.
Necronesia, still for Wii, a Silent Hill/Bio Hazard clone by Spike were you fight insects. Not suitable for children under 15.

Speaking of which, Bio Hazard Umbrella Chronicles has the same producer as Bio 4 and Onimusha. Some pictures show a place that looks like BH1's manor.

Still for Wii : Dog Island, Sengoku Mus˘ Wave (using the remote like the sword in that DQ game)

Gyakuten Saiban 4 (on NDS)
Odoroki's teacher seems to follow you, a bit like what Mayoi was doing. His name is...牙流霧人 (I don't want to take chances in reading a GS name). Spring 2007.
GS2 DS will have Phoenix Right 2 included.

Virtua Fighter 5 PS3 will be playable at the TGS, and (Horii ?) is making a VF5 stick for the PS3. Several Sega arcade games seems to have been in development for a long time on the PS3, including a golf game, Miyazato Sanky˘dai Sega Golf Club.

Two of the Ryűsei Rockman are called Pegasus and Leo (I think the game has 3 declinations, like Nintendogs)

Sega Ages 2500 Virtua On (PS2)

PSP Parappa Rapper. Supposed to be a remake, but it just looks like a port.

NDS Seiken Densetsu Heroes Of Mana is... a real time strategy RPG !?
Producer : Ishii Koichi, of course.
Scenario : Kat˘ Masato (Chrono Trigger, Radical Dreamers, Chrono Cross, Baten Kaitos, Children Of Mana...)
Ikeda is not doing the character design, but two guys I don't know (It˘ Ryűma and Oguro Akira) are.
Shimomura Y˘ko does the music, good !

Lots of interviews of Ishii, and some previews of Seiken Densetsu 4 (PS2) as well.

a 7th Taiko no Tatsujin for PS2. An Adventure mode will be included.

Kojima Production, scoops, MGS4, MGS portable, MGS bande dessinÚe, Bokutai DS, etc. Nomura interview, new crappy Nomura game, KH2 Final Mix.

PS2, PSP (spring 2007), DS (december 2006) : Puyo Puyo 15th anniversary

PS2 : Outrun 2 SP. more cars, more BGM, more courses.

Wii : Sonic and the mysterious ring.
...
And it will have innovative uses of the remote.
...
DADDY I'M SCARED.

NDS : Lise no Atelier.

PS2 : Hokuto no Ken Arcade (tentative title). March 2007. The fighting game, I guess ?

Coocking Mama on Wii.

Survival Kids Lost In Blue 2 this spring on NDS.

Super Monkey ball and Rayman on Wii. Iyashii Ito (???)

Bugs haven't had a starring role in a game since, what, Galaga? Hopefully the insects in this game are going to be big suckers that take a few hits to bludgeon to death. Out of all the games that have been announced for the Wii this may be the first one that causes players to go into a fit of panicked flailing.

DANGER DANGER! Without Sakaguchi and Enix's head to reign in Kato scenarios in like in Chrono Trigger, watch as NDS Seiken Densetsu tells you that every other Seiken Densetsu you played was a lie or that its heroes don't exist or were killed. God might be an alien, too.

They're wrong about it being a prequel, though. Not if it's about air pirating (and judging by Penelo's costume).

I thought that part of the ending was really lame. So Vaan decides to be a criminal, and nobody has any problem with that. Maybe Ashe decided that he was too stupid to do any real harm, and that he'd get tired of living out his air pirate fantasies after a week or so.

Tomayto, tomahto. In the age of futurist game journalism you can mash up the developer and publisher. You could do that in normal game journalism as well now that I think about it. Anyway, Sega stamped their name all over the prop box so they're claiming some responsibility for the game.

As for the game itself I'm not sure what to think about the mini-cavemen. Part of the appeal of the original was that it was so damn weird looking. While tiny people are an odd choice they don't have that strange spark the human larva/fish had.

CNN reports that the PS3 will solve modern medical problems. Either this means that a person can feel like they are doing something productive by doing nothing more than leaving their PS3 running or that when someone plays DMC4 they are killing people who could have been saved if the processing power of the PS3 had been used for philanthropy instead of running a game.

Maybe so.

Top 3 Characters I don't want to use:

1: Rachael
2: Everyone from Mortal Kombat
3: Kratos from God of War

Really, I didn't know she had any fans. From a gameplay perspective, I guess that's pretty exciting, though.

That's sick. They could make an "all Gohan fighting game". I'm secretly pleased at the inclusion of Tao, though.

Did Sparking have the original soundtrack on the English release? The attempt to make a game that really feels like DBZ is pointless without that.

If the most exciting thing isn't that this is going to be the first DBZ game with a playable Yajirobe then I don't know what it is.

Tenkaichi, the english release of Sparking, had a newly composed soundtrack and opening song (by Kenji Yamamoto?). Yeah, that sucked, plus I find it hylarious that they switched an english titled japanese game into a japanese titled game for US/Europe, when it's usually the other way around.

MGS4 footage. Gives a good indication about how the gameplay will be. Looks pretty good. I wonder how you will have to fight those metal gear things as it kind of shows Snake fighting it from the ground. Also, in Kojima, style there is a surpise in the end.

Super cheesy, but any song that starts with a heavy metal wail is 100% awesome in my books. Well, as long as it has a good solo.

I need a better trailer for Trusty Bell. I can't figure out how the battle system works. I'm afraid it might be as boring as Radiata Stories, despite having other things going for it.

- Why did you lower the PS3's price ?
- Well, we began with the USA price, 500$, and they said "oh, that's cheap! Are you sure it's not to cheap?"
Then Europe, 490Ç. and... well, you know how they drink wine at the restaurant ? They could order beer, but no. So of course they thought it was a good price. BUT IN JAPAN, some people thought it was a bit expensive, so we lowered the price a bit.


Kutaragi Love.
This is my TGS highlight.

On the other hand, my favourite game of the TGS2007 is a game of 1998 with a sprite cropped from 1996, so.........

Well, some people on Gamefaqs seem to really love Beyond the Beyond! We should take their word for it. I mean, why would someone give a game a PERFECT score if it wasn't totally awesome?

I don't know that RPGs are better these days...a lot of them are really poorly put together (system stinks, but the plot is okay, plot is okay, but the challenge level is completely messed up etc.), but Blue Dragon looks remarkably generic in terms of system.

Or does that just mean we applaud it for "going back to its RPG roots"? That's a good answer to RPGs with crappy graphics, one-dimensional characters, generic plots and uninteresting systems. Sometimes innovation is bad?

Speaking of which, has anyone seen the White Knight Chronicles trailer? It seems to be simultaneously interesting and painfully bland.

Yuck, FFIX did that, and I sure wasn't happy with the result. Roots are overrated. But I think I made Beyond look better than it was (well, it's gamefaqs so not really), but if even that site pans it more often than not...

Also, you didn't answer the poll. minus ten!

Yeah, I am enamoured with that incredible cock rock. Like some hair metal band jumped out of the 80's and right into my 360.

After watching the whole presentation vid I'm not overwhelmed but I'm not disappointed either. It looks like Dragon Quarter without the drab Dragon Quarter graphics.

EDIT:

Dunno if it's new but IGN has some more CFC DS screenshots. Dr. Wily!

I'm concerned by the number of cards that has apparently decreased (they're still talking of "over 400), but, well, maybe we don't need all the Star Gladiator and Fűun characters.

Ryuichi Sakamoto has done terrible thing in the past, like the track he did for the Appleseed Soundtrack (yes the cell shaded one), which is pretty much a pain to listen to. I'll be carefull with what he does now, but I don't think he'll do anything like that one again.

Yes, now. I like the looks of the fighting, and the fire beast boss seemed impressive. Maybe it was the simple looking character designs that seemed bland? The gameplay from the movie looks pretty fun.

I think the interestng part will soon turn boring and poorly implented. I'm nonplussed.

Other news : Madhouse is doing the DMC anime. Next spring, on WOWOW.

The anime Tokimemo OnlyLove beginning next week, is based on Tokimemo Online (?)

Also, I don't think I've seen it posted anywhere, but Arcadia is soon going to stop.
