Jump Festa Lineups Revealed

Find out what Square Enix, Nintendo, Sega and all are showing.

 
Square Enix is usually the booth to visit during Jump. Last year's booth, shown here, had first playable Dragon Quest IX.

Capcom kicked off the Jump Festa teases with a bang yesterday, revealing via a special event site that Sengoku Basara 3 and Last Ranker would make their playable debuts at the show. Other publishers, while not yet ready with their own special sites, have given a peak at their lineups through the official Jump site.

A total of twenty-three content makers will be showing product at the event. Here are the current lineups for the game-related companies, along with a bit of commentary.

CAPCOM

Playable Last Ranker (PSP), Sengoku Basara 3 (PS3/Wii) and Okamiden (DS). The wording at the Jump site suggests that both PS3 and Wii versions of Sengoku Basara will be there.

KOEI

Playable Samurai Warriors 3, along with a Samurai Warriors 3 stage. Koei usually has a small booth at Jump, so I wouldn't be too surprised if this was it.

KONAMI

Playable Yugioh 5Ds Duel Transfer (Wii), data transfer for Yugioh 5Ds Tag Force 4 (PSP), playable Prince of Tennis: School Festival Prince (DS), playable Tegamibachi (PSP). The playable titles all seem to be first time debuts.

SQUARE ENIX

Playable Cross Treasure and Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep, along with the latest video clips. This list sounds very tentative. Even though Tetsuya Nomura said there'd be no new Final Fantasy Versus XIII footage until E3, I'd be surprised if we didn't at least see a new trailer here. I wouldn't even be surprised if it ended up being playable....

SEGA

Playable Phantasy Star Portable 2. This game hits retail three weeks prior to the show, so Sega will hopefully have something else as well.

SONY COMPUTER ENTERTAINMENT

Playable Bleach Soul Carnival 2 (PSP) and Bleach Heat the Soul 6 (PSP). Wow, a Sony Jump booth with Bleach? Who'd've thunk it.

TAKARA TOMY

Naruto Shippuuden Ryouninki (Wii)

NINTENDO

Playable New Super Mario Bros. Wii. Nintendo rarely makes a big splash at Jump, so I wouldn't be surprised if this ended up being it. Don't count on Super Mario Galaxy 2 or a Zelda trailer or anything of the sort.

HUDSON

Playable Deca Sporta DS. This will have already been released by the time of the event.

NAMCO BANDAI GAMES

Playable Dragon Ball Raging Blast (PS3), Tales of Graces (Wii) and Naruto Shippuuden Narutimate Accel 3 (PSP). I imagine we'll hear something about a new Tales game as well. Actually, I imagine we'll hear about a bunch of new Tales games a few weeks before Jump, then hear more about them at Jump. Last year's Namco Bandai booth also had a last minute addition through the new Blue Dragon game.

MARVELOUS ENTERTAINMENT

Katei Kyoshi Hitman Reborn Kizuna Tag Battle (PSP) and Katei Kyoshi Hitman Reborn! Battle Arena 2 (PSP).

Jump will be held on December 19 and December 20 at the Makuhari Messe just outside Tokyo. It's the same venue as the Tokyo Game Show, and Shueisha uses the space to host scary giant Jump character balloons.
