Capcom and Koei launch Japanese PS3 offensive

Several of Capcom and Koei's PlayStation 3 titles will be playable at next week's Tokyo Game Show, while Capcom has also spoken of new game announcements.

With expectation starting to build ahead of Tokyo's annual showcase, Capcom has pledged 12 demo units of Devil May Cry 4, while Koei aims to have playable versions of some of its PS3 titles on-hand, likely to include Fatal Inertia (a launch title), Bladestorm, Ni-Oh and Mahjong Taikai IV.

Koei will also be demonstrating Samurai Warriors Wave for Nintendo Wii, while Capcom will be offering hands-on time with Xbox 360 exclusive Lost Planet, but with PlayStation 3 making its public playable debut in Japan the Sony console is understandably the focus.

Elsewhere on Capcom's line-up is obscure PlayStation 2 fighting game God Hand, developed by Clover Studio, along with PSP titles Power Stone Collection, Monster Hunter Portable 2nd and Capcom Classics Collection. The DS will be represented by a new Phoenix Wright title and Megaman Rebirth.

Koei, meanwhile, is largely focused on Sony formats, with PS2 titles Sangokushi 11, G1 Jockey 4 2006, Harukanaru Toki no Naka De, Samurai Warriors 2 Empires and Nobunaga's Ambition on show, and Dynasty Warriors Mahjong appearing on PSP. That title will also be visible on DS, along with Pocket Scenario Series Harukanaru Toki no Naka De.

Tokyo Game Show 2006 takes place between September 22nd and 24th.
