Following the news around the Tokio Game Show and eagerly anticipating more information about the new games’ releases, I was very pleased to learn that:
1. The Last Guardian will be released in holiday season 2011, at least in Japan.
2. The ICO and Shadow of the Colossus HD remakes will be available next spring.
3. Tecmo Koei is working on Ninja Gaiden III
4. Gran Turismo 5 will hit the market in Japan on November 3 and hopefully come to Europe soon.
6. From Software plans to release a new dark fantasy game exclusively for the PS3, called Project Dark, and promises the game will be hardcore.
7. There is a trailer for Asura’s Wrath.

A tweet by game developer Ninja Theory about a new game being revealed at this week’s Tokio Game Show (TGS) spread speculation that the new title could be Devil May Cry 5. There have been rumours for some time now, claiming Ninja Theory will be the developer of the next DMC game.
Keiji Inafune of Capcom then confirmed the information at the TGS, saying the game, called DmC, is currently in development. Still not release date has been set for the game.
I’m a huge DMC fan and would pick Dante over Kratos everytime. DMC 4 is one of the best action games I’ve played. Fingers crossed the game would be available soon!
An interesting game, called Shadow of the Damned, is expected to be presented at the TGS. According to the IGN article I read, which is based on information of the Famitsu magazine, the game will be a available on PS3 and Xbox 360 and will have “Resident Evil 4-ish viewpoint”.
The Famitsu magazine has confirmed that ICO and Shadow of the Collossus HD remakes will be released for the PS3. More details are expected at the TGS.
At its press conference at the TGS, Capcom announced the development of a new action game, called Asura’s Wrath. The game will be available for the PS 3 and Xbox 360. Capcom did not announce a release date.
I think the game looks like a Japanese version of God of War.
Since we bought the PS 3 I have barely touched my PS 2 games and the main reason for that are the graphics. Once used to the high-def world of the Playstation 3 games it is very hard for me to trade down again.
That’s why I find brilliant the idea of game companies to revamp some of the popular titles for the PS 2 and launch HD remakes for the PS3. And that’s why I was delighted to read that the Team ICO Collection might be coming out in HD soon.
Apparently, the HD remake of the collection is expected to hit the market in January or April 2011.
This seems so eerily real that I get goosebumps on my arms.
Shadow of the Colossus is one of the best games I have ever played and completely deserves all the praise that’s been heaped on it. I thought it was not as emotionally charged as ICO, but that may have been just my personal impression.
Hit the jump for some speculation on which of the colossi this one is.
