News: We don't know if they'll be coming to America, but here's what some of the big boys have planned for E3 East.



No one at Gaming Target will be able to make it to the Tokyo Game Show this year. I know it's sad, but it's true. So here's the next best thing, a round-up of all the big announcements, some of which we in America will never see. But they all should at least be in Japanese stores next year.

For the RPG fanatic, Namco has announced a trio of big titles. Xenosaga Episode III: Thus Spoke Zaratharus will close out the series on the PS2. But wait, that same link produced confirmation that a Xenosaga I and II collection is in development for the DS. The games will be readapted for 2D, but Namco will try to cram in as many of Xenosaga's FMV cut scenes as they can.

Rounding out Namco's big three will be a return to the world of Baten Kaitos with Baten Kaitos II for the GameCube. Sticking with that same link, but switching gears to Namco's famous Ace Combat series, Ace Combat Zero: The Belkan War is in the works. The game will be coming to the PS2 sometime next year and it will be a prequel to last year's Ace Combat 5.

Jumping over to that other handheld, Namco also has plans to bring Katamari Damacy to the PSP. My My Katamari Damacy picks up with the Prince after he has agreed to rebuild an island for peaceful animals after it was washed away in a tsunami. You read that right. There's no word how the control scheme for Katamari will work on the PSP.

More PSP puzzle action comes in the form of Tetsuya Mizuguchi's next project: Every, Extend, Extra. Needless to say, it will include music, puzzles and shooting.

Rounding out the new games, Spike has announced that Way of the Samurai 3 is coming to the PS3 sometime in 2007.

Out of all of these titles I'd say the only ones that will drop on American shores for sure are Xenosaga III and Ace Combat Zero. With the rest, you never can tell how some of these release dates work.

But with all these announcements let's not forget the Big N as it's been assumed that Nintendo will reveal the Revolution (and it's revolutionary controller) any day now.

Stay tuned for more warp-up as it gets unwrapped in Tokyo.
