Sony Shares World Hobby Fair Plans

Toro to Mori Mori, My Summer Vacation 4 go playable alongside Ratchet 2.


With E3 out of the way, you might be thinking that you'll have to wait until September's Tokyo Game Show for your next blast of gaming news. And you're probably correct.

But there is a mid-sized event coming up. As detailed a few weeks back, the summer World Hobby Fair hits Tokyo on the 20th and 21st and promises to offer debuts for some games that didn't make the E3 cut -- most likely due to extreme Japanesiness.

Sony shared its lineup yesterday. Visitors to the Sony booth can expect a mix of PS3 and PSP titles. PS3 will see Ratchet & Clank Future 2, The Last Guy, and Toro to Mori Mori. For the PSP, Sony will show My Summer Vacation 4 and Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G.

Of these, Toro to Mori Mori (the latest entry in the Dokodemo Issyo series) and My Summer Vacation 4 will be seeing their world debuts. Ratchet was playable at last week's E3.

Sony will also be hosting a goods sales corner, where it will offer custom made items, allowing visitors to combine items with their own design choices. Items include t-shirts, caps, tote bags and book covers. Designs include Sarugetchu, Patapon, and Dokodemo Issyo.
