Next-Gen Konami Titles NOT Cancelled
We reported earlier that Konami was planning to cancel several next-gen titles, but now it seems that story needs some clarification.
The Internet was alive with the story, and just as a refresher, the following list of games were on the chopping block (according to information we had a couple days ago):
- Gradius Series (PS3)
- Jikkyou Powerful Pro Baseball (PS3)
- New Action Game (PS3)
- New Role Playing Game (PS3)
- New Action Adventure Game 2 (Wii)
- Role Playing Game (Wii)
Game journalists based the report on a release list in the most recent issue of Japan's most popular gaming magazine, Famitsu. But today, Famitsu was quick to offer up a big correction on its website: those games have not been cancelled; they simply have a "TBA" release date, which has never changed.
See what happens when the fact-checker takes a day off for a major magazine?
