Four New PSN Games Discovered?

Personally, I've never understood the appeal of virtual "people-tracking" services like Facebook, but LinkedIn has proved to be a valuable source of information in the past.

As noted by PS3Center, an unknown developer currently has four PlayStation 3 games in the hopper due to Michelle Franklin's LinkedIn page. As you can see, it says she's a Senior Game Designer for a "confidential employer" - and has been since the Summer of 2008 - and she's currently working on no less than four PS3 titles, two of which are still unnamed. The unnamed games are a "ninja RPG for Japan" and "one Zombie Survival Horror Action Adventure." The implication in the first game is that it'll be exclusive to Japan (but we still want to know about this "ninja RPG") and the second could be just about anything. It could be a full-on title like Resident Evil or Left 4 Dead, or it could be a downloadable game of some sort. The other two projects are Key of Solomon and Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, both of which are clearly based on classic novels from medieval times; the former from the 17th century and the latter from the 14th. Both are primed for the video game universe simply due to their fantastical natures; I remember reading Sir Gawain back in college, and a game should be intriguing.

Anyway, above all else, we have to find out who this "confidential employer" is if we wish to pin down more details. My guess is that all of these are downloadable titles for the PSN but you never know...

Yup, sure is cool. I would have no idea to just randomly click on a developers social networking page. The Ninja RPG sojnds pretty good too.

Cool we could use some PSN titles. There hasn't really been any "great" ones in a while. Still waiting for PJ Shooter and Trine, if Trine is still coming to NA..

Again, not a novel. : P

Unlike Inferno, Gawain at least has some action, but they'll probably stretch it out like with the Beowulf game.

No classic works of literature except The Iliad have as much action as a video game; even the Odyssey is thin.

I can't wait to kill hordes of undead pirates in Moby Dick.
