Microsoft’s Hefty Tokyo Game Show Lineup Leaked?


What appears to be a leaked list of Microsoft’s planned Tokyo Game Show ’09 lineup has made its way onto the internet, and it’s not unimpressive, with a double dose of HaloLegends anime and Reach just the tip of the iceberg.

The list showed up on Japanese game site OnlinePlayer, and quickly made its way to NeoGAF (as these things often do). The complete lineup, as rumored, is as follows:

360 Titles:

Samurai Spirits Sen (video/playable)
Fifa 10 (video/playable)
Lost Planet 2 (video/playable)
Mushihime Futari Ver1.5 (video/playable)
Shin Sangoku Musou Multi Raid Special (video/playable)
Castlevania Lords of Shadow (video only)
Ninety Nine Nights 2 (video/playable)
World Soccer Winning Eleven 2010 (video/playable)
Front Mission Evolved (video/playable)
Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 (video only)
NieR Gestalt (video/playable)
Bayonetta (video/playable)
End of Eternity (video/playable)
Dragonball Rising Blast (video/playable)
Tekken 6 (video/playable)
Steins Gate (video/playable)
Forza Motorsport 3 (video/playable)
Alan Wake (video only)
Fable 3 (video only)
Halo 3 ODST (video/playable)
Halo Legends (video only)
Halo Reach (video only)
Riot Act 2 (Crackdown 2) (video only)
Borderlines (video only)
Assassin’s Creed 2 (video/playable)
Splinter Cell Conviction (video only)
Infernal: Hell’s Vengeance (video/playable)

XBLA Playable Titles:

0 day Attack on Earth
Bomberman Live: Battlefest
Ray Storm HD
Shadow Complex

Assuming that this list is the real deal? Playable End of Eternity, Lost Planet 2, and Assassin’s Creed 2 should be fun, but what really interests me are some of the video-only titles: Crackdown 2, Alan Wake, Halo: Reach and Castlevania, to be precise. We got our first looks at Reach and Crackdown back in early June during E3, and I can’t help but wonder if we’ll be stuck with the same teaser trailer you see above, or if we’ll get a more in-depth look at the Halo prequel.

As always, though, this is just a rumor and we won’t know more until we get official word from Microsoft. If true, though, this is a pretty strong-looking lineup for MS’ TGS booth. Of course, it would have to be a strong-looking lineup to even come close to permeating Japan’s collective “meh” towards the Xbox 360.
