24-25 OCTOBER – EXCEL LONDON – ROYAL VICTORIA DOCK
As the grand opening of this year’s London Games Festival, London MCM Expo was always going to be knee-deep in sweet gaming goodness, giving visitors hands-on experience with upcoming epic titles such as Bandai Namco’s ‘Tekken 6’, Ubisoft’s ‘Assassin’s Creed 2’ and ‘Monster Hunter Tri’ from Capcom. Now three more top developers give you a sneak peek at what they’ve got planned for October’s Expo:
2K Games are proud to present Gearbox’s revolutionary new first person role-playing shooter ‘Borderlands’, which plunges up to four players into the harsh frontier world of Pandora in search of the mysterious Alien Vault. Level up your character with one of four individual skill sets, jump behind the wheel for some high-speed vehicle-to-vehicle combat and take your pick from literally hundreds of thousands of weapons created by the game’s unique content generation system – if you’re going to survive the deadly wastelands of Pandora, you’ll need all the help you can get!
Mighty heroes and wannabe warriors should make their way over to the Koei Tecmo stand, where you’ll get the chance to play Ryu, Rachel and two all-new characters in Team Ninja’s awesome blockbuster action sequel ‘Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2’; battle legendary heroes and mythical monsters in ‘Warriors: Legends of Troy’; and raise up an army of zombies for some handheld hack-and-slashery in ‘Undead Knights’ for the PSP. Meanwhile, ‘Dynasty Warriors: Strikeforce HD’ brings the PSP hit to the Xbox 360 and PS3, complete with upgraded graphics, online cooperative play and stunning super-powered transformations. Will you be the one to reunite the Three Kingdoms?
Supernatural thrills come courtesy of Rising Star Games’ ‘Ju-On: The Grudge’, which sees the cult horror classic transformed into the Wii’s first haunted house simulator… with spine-chillingly scary results. Another Wii game on show will be ‘Muramasa: The Demon Blade’, a visually-stunning action role-playing game that challenges the player to retrieve 108 cursed blades scattered throughout feudal Japan.
Meanwhile, Nintendo DS users can get in touch with their kawaii side with titles such as ‘Angel Cat Sugar’ and ‘Happy Party with Hello Kitty and Friends’. And that’s not all – Rising Star is also bringing two previously unannounced titles to the Expo – ‘Way of the Samurai 3’ for the Xbox 360 and PS3 and ‘Papermates’ for the DS.
Other big names with exciting new titles to announce include Activision; Electronic Arts, Konami and Nippon Ichi, so keep an eye out for more breaking news!
