Marvelous pushes Wii at Tokyo Game Show

Five playable Wii titles to be shown


Marvelous Entertainment opened up [a href=http://www.mmv.co.jp/special/game/tgs2008/]a special site[/a] today detailing its plans for the Tokyo Game Show. Based on the titles listed at the site, the company has somewhat of a Nintendo slant this year.

The company's exhibition list contains 12 titles, of which 11 will be playable.

The Wii gets the bulk of support, with playable builds of Arc Rise Fantasia, Rune Factory Frontier, Harvest Moon Waku Waku Animal March, Hitman Reborn! Kindan no Yami no Delta, and Oboro Muramasa Youtouden. Little King Story will be shown in video form only.

For the DS, the company has two playable titles: Avalon Code and Akagawa Jiro Mystery Tsuki no Hikari.

For Sony systems, the company has four titles planned. PSP will get Ikki Tousen Eloquent Fist. PS2 will get its own version of Katei Kyoshi Hitman Reborn! Kindan no Yami no Delta, along with Junjou Romachika Koi no Doki Doki Daisakusen, and Zero no Tsukai Ma Mayogo no Period to Ikusen no Symphony.

The company promises surprise titles as well, some of which will be added to the page soon.

Outside of the games, Marvelous is promising a giant stage that will be home to stage shows featuring major guests appearing in talk events and live performances. Details will be shared in the "event" corner of the special site.

Also featured at the special site is an employee blog which promises daily updates revealing top secret information. Currently, the blog has just one entry, a greeting from the Marvelous president reflecting back on the year.

Commemorating the launch of the special TGS site, Marvelous has made available a couple of special wallpaper downloads. New wallpapers will be made available every week until TGS kicks off.

TGS will be held from October 9 to October 12. The last two days are open to the public, so those interested in getting a chance at the latest games should head out to the Makuhari Messe in Chiba then.
