Konami Reveals Holiday Lineup

While it's true that Konami's biggest 2008 title has already arrived - Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots - the publisher still has plenty of top titles ready and rarin' to go for a holiday release.

They have revealed their official list of late 2008/early 2009 titles, and it includes some very intriguing games. Not only will the uber-popular Dance Dance Revolution franchise continue on multiple platforms, but we'll also get Konami's other music-based effort, Rock Revolution. Many expect it to offer major competition for the likes of Guitar Hero and Rock Band, although these days, that's quite a tall order. Here's the list:

  • Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (DS, October 21, 2008)
  • Castlevania: Judgment (Wii, Fall 2008)
  • Pro Evolution Soccer 2009 (PS3, Xbox 360, PSP, PC, November 11, 2008)
  • DanceDanceRevolution Hottest Party 2 (Wii, September 16, 2008)
  • DanceDanceRevolution Universe 3 (Xbox 360, October 2008)
  • DanceDanceRevolution X (PS2, September 16, 2008)
  • Rock Revolution (PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, DS, Fall 2008)
  • Karaoke Revolution Presents: American Idol Encore 2 (Xbox 360, Wii, Winter 2008)
  • Winx Club: Mission Enchantix (DS, November 4, 2008)
  • Lost in Blue Shipwrecked (Wii, September 23, 2008)
  • Silent Hill: Homecoming (PS3, Xbox 360, September 30, 2008)
  • Elebits: Adventures of Kai and Zero (DS, Q1 2009)

Obviously, Konami is showing Nintendo a lot of love, but arguably the two biggest titles on the list are coming to the PS3 and Xbox 360. We certainly can't wait for Silent Hill: Homecoming, and in all honesty, it may be one of the most overlooked games of 2008. Have we all forgotten just how good previous installments have been...? With Resident Evil 5 still a ways off, Homecoming should be a great pick for survival/horror fans.

Ouch. A serious lack of PS3 games there. Oh well, MGS4 and SH:H are the best of the bunch and they're on PS3. Keep the rest.

Wait ... is that a PS2 game? Go Konami!

*Sigh*

Still waiting for a true console follow-up to Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. Those 3-D efforts were kind of horrendous. The Gameboy has been getting a lot of good ones.

Very looking forward to Silent Hill. It's still one of the creepiest series around only matched, in my opinion, by Fatal Frame.

I don't see anything else on this list that really screams out, "BUY ME!" Would like to see them bring back some of their older projects such as: Policenaughts, Snatcher, Silent Scope, Vandal Hearts, Salamander, and one of my favorite fighting games, Martial Champion.

Pro Evo better get its act together this time! The last 2 or 3 werent working.
No DDR Universe for PS3? Thats strange. Its only on the 360. I would assume thats a big game and PS3 is getting ignored.
Not looking forward to SH though. Im a fan of the first 3 but Konami is not developing it and thats the first mistake of a big list. I'll pick up dead space instead thank you.

OK, only 3 games for the PS3... Maybe Konami is not happy at all with the response of PS3 owners to MGS4.... any other explanation?

Maybe Silent Hill from that list but the others are not even worth looking at.
I have loved all previous installments of Silent Hill but to be honest, the next-gen SH game doesn't seem all that next-gen to me.
