Sega Bringing Bayonetta, Alpha Protocol To E3
We're already starting to see publishers releasing their list of games they intend to present at E3, and Sega is the latest.
Thanks to Sega's latest Twitter update, they will be bringing several interesting titles to the year's biggest North American show. We're intrigued by The Conduit but obviously, the most anticipated projects on that list are Platinum Games' Bayonetta and Obsidian Entertainment's Alpha Protocol. The latter is a Western-style RPG that may be similar to the likes of Mass Effect, and we really can't say enough about our excitement for Bayonetta. We already have plenty of videos - go check if you haven't seen them all - and the information we've nailed down has been most impressive. A female Dante? Yes, please! The game is slated to arrive in early September and Alpha Protocol, after suffering a significant delay earlier this year, should hit store shelves some time in October. Other games Sega will bring to E3 are ones that probably won't interest the PlayStation crowd, but here they are, anyway: Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games, Planet 51, and Vancouver 2010. But really, we just wanna see Bayonetta tearin' sh** up.
Stay tuned as more publishers come forward with their scheduled E3 presentations, but don't expect any of them to prematurely issue any big announcements. ...they'll keep 'em secret until the press conferences.
