Tecmo To Unveil New PS3 Exclusive?
Here's the thing with Tecmo: it seems as if they want to embrace the competitor with the most powerful console in each generation. Last generation, we saw Tecmo focusing on the Xbox, so might it stand to reason that we see the developer turning their emphasis to the PlayStation 3 this time around?
Well, it certainly seems possible. The newest rumor circulating around the Internet (which, as far as we can tell, began in the NeoGAF forums) is that Tecmo is set to unveil a brand new project, and it's a PS3 exclusive. They plan to debut the title on March 24; we know this due to e-mails Tecmo sent to certain press members, asking them to attend an event at a PlayStation Store in San Francisco at 3 p.m. After the announcement, there should be a 30-minute Q&A session with the producer and director of this mystery game. Now, because this will all take place in a PlayStation Store, everyone is just assuming the title in question is a PS3 exclusive, and we're all starting to wonder...what the heck is it? They couldn't possibly be referring to Ninja Gaiden III; it's a franchise that has gone multiplatform already (from Microsoft to Sony, actually). We're expecting an interesting IP of some kind, although we're not about to make any further predictions. You can bet we'll be paying close attention on the 24th of this month, though...
Yeah, we'll tell you as soon as we hear what it is. Tecmo is a talented developer who is capable of doing some amazing stuff, so this could turn out to be very good news for PS3 owners.
