Rounding out the media blitz of Metal Gear today, here are screenshots for Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots.
Tokyo Game Show
Check out the trailer for Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles, fresh from the Tokyo Game Show.
We want to play this survial horror shooter. Badly. It's scheduled to come out in November for the Wii.
Square-Enix is bringing Kingdom Hearts to all on the go with three new games announced for the DS, PSP, and mobile phones.
The games have only officially been announced for Japanese release, but the DS and PSP versions will probably hit the US at some point.
The games are:
- Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days (Nintendo DS) -- A singleplayer and multiplayer RPG featuring Roxas and Axel.
- Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep (Sony PSP) -- Three new characters, who are all keyblade apprentices, are searching for a missing keyblade master.
- Kingdom Hearts: Coded (Mobile Phones) -- A virtual Sora embarks on a mission to decode a message for Jiminy Cricket.
Also, the trailer that appeared at the end of Kingdom Hearts II: Final Mix, which most fans believed to be from a PS3 sequel, is actually for KH: Birth by Sleep.
Kojima was rumored to be releasing the TGS demo of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots on the PSN.
The demo, as seen at the Metal Gear 20th anniversary party, displayed new features such as the Octo-Camo, revamped CQC and weapon customization elements. It also featured extended scenes from the recently released press conference trailer that finds Meryl, Johnny and Snake in a bombed out building.
Buuuut….the rumor turned out to be A LIE!
A DIRTY, FILTHY LIE!!!
And that is why I don’t trust the liberal media.
We're utterly speechless.
Metal Gear Solid 4 features the most awesome, oddest, head-explodingest trailer in human history--a monkey drinking Coke, a Jeff Goldblum looking dude, an inexplicably pimpish arms dealer--this trailer has it all!
Can't wait for this PlayStation 3 title to come out in the beginning of 2008.
The kids over at Joystiq are in Tokyo, hanging out at the TGS, and they've had the opportunity to see the super secret Final Fantasy XIII trailer. So, what's in it? Mostly, a lot of what you'd expect from Square's most popular series, but there was one interesting tidbit that made it stand out. At the end of the trailer, a title card reading "PS3 Only" made an appearance, squelching any idea that the series would be migrating to another console.
The visuals were, as always, stunning, and there were some new characters introduced. Not that there was any way to identify them or anything, but it's always nice to know that there is some new personnel coming your way, isn't it? There were also a few different environments, from ice to desert, which show that the game is going to be pretty complex. We can't wait to see the trailer ourselves, but given the top secret nature of the one shown at TGS, that might take a while.

Bladestorm has nothing to do with that episode of The Simpsons where Bart wants Marge to buy him BoneStorm.
Instead, it's a strategy game based on the Hundred Years War between France and England. It's scheduled to come out in North America before the year is out.
Feel free visit the official site and compare and contrast these screenshots:
In his remarks at the Tokyo Game Show, Sony Entertainment President Kaz Hirai said that the PlayStation Store will be available on PC, as well as on the PlayStation. This means that you'll be able to do things like download games for the PSP without dropping the cash on a PlayStation 3.
The service, which is already live in Japan, should be coming to the States in the not-too-distant future. You can go to the website now, but you're going to have to navigate it in Japanese. Of course, if you can do that, you're kind of a stud, so we're rooting for you.
