Focusing on the Japanese game creators and their talent, the event promised ten titles that will be discussed throughout the convention for Day One.

First to be presented was Metal Gear Solid Rising. After showing a clipped version of the E3 trailer and a live demo using standard controller, MGS Rising Producer – Shigenobu Matsuyama – said that the game is being developed as scheduled. However, a specific release date and Kinect support was not revealed. Next on the presentation is an XBox Avatar Fire Pro Wrestling game. A Spike collaboration, the game has an avatar dressed as a wrestler fighting in a ring. So a game is on the horizon, if you want a brawl with your avatar. However, no release date has been said. Third is a XBLA exclusive game from Treasure — Radiant Silvergun. The game – that comes in HD – is an XBox 360 exclusive for XBLA in 2011, with XBox Live, co-op play and downloadable replays.

Turning the focus on Kinect, Matsuura – the guy responsible for Parappa the Rappa – is intent in making a horror game for Kinect called Haunt. With a first person view and akin a cartoon look to it, Haunt is an exclusive XBox 360 game to be released in 2011. Another Kinect game that will take the scene is Project Draco. Also hitting glasses next year, Project Draco is a game of a dragon-looking guy opposing “legendary creatures.” Next is Grasshopper Manufacture’s Codename D.
