Inazuma Eleven 2 Goes Playable at World Hobby Fair
Level-5's latest among a handful of playable debuts.
World Hobby Fair show organizers sent out press packets today detailing company-by-company plans for the upcoming summer (un)spectacular.
Typical of the World Hobby Fair, there isn't too much of note at the show. However, there are a couple of major debuts that may make the trip out to the Makuhari Messe worthwhile.
In the Level-5 booth, attendees will be given a first chance at trying out Inazuma Eleven 2. The DS sequel hits on October 1.
Inazuma Eleven actually has somewhat of a history with the bi-anual World Hobby Fair event, as detailed in this March Akihiro Hino interview.
The Level-5 booth will also see character data distribution for the original Inazuma Eleven.
Namco Bandai's booth will offer up Taiko Drum Master Wii (ho-hum) and Tamagotchi no Kira Kira Omisecchi (ho-hummer), both already available. Attendees will also get a shot at Tabemon, the new Wii puzzler that's said to be a combination of elements from Katamari Damacy and Pac Man.
The final surprise comes from Electronic Arts. In addition to Sim Racing, EA will offer players a chance at playable Shonen Kininden Tsumuji. The game debuted at January's World Hobby Fair, but only recently entered the spotlight.
Details on all the World Hobby Fair booths (except Nintendo's for some reason) can be seen at the World Hobby Fair official site.
The World Hobby Fair will be held on June 20 and 21 at the Makuhari Messe on the outskirts of Tokyo.
