Konami preview round-up

Last night Konami came to town and swept us up in a tidal wave of new game announcements and new-fangled information on games we’ve been dying to know more about. But why search high and low for our fresh takes on those games when you can find them all here? Yes, not only will you find links to all the Konami previews here, but also curt little blurbs about some of the smaller, weirder releases that are EXCLUSIVE to this article. Wow, huh?

Saw II doesn't need much explanation
Traps trap you, puzzles puzzle you, and there's a lot of red stuff


Rush ‘N Attack Ex-Patriot looks eerily familiar
First look at extra-stabby sequel reveals interesting similarities with Shadow Complex


Ninety-Nine Nights II is actually as fun as it looks
Brief demo raises hopes N3II could be a cut above the average hack-and-slasher


Castlevania: Lords of Shadow will probably kick ass
Wayward franchise may have finally found its new direction

New Lost in Shadow screens and impressions
We'd put the spotlight on Hudson's Wii platformer, but it might disappear

Lucha Libre AAA: Heroes of the Ring first look
A new face is here to challenge the champ for the belt


Above: Also not much new info, but click here to see new screens from the retrotastic Rocket Knight

More screens!

Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s Decade Duels

Ben 10 Alien Force: The Rise of Hex

GTI Club Supermini Festa!

Gormiti: The Lords of Nature!

"What the?" game announcements section:

The Cages: Pro Style Batting Practice

Above: That's right, it's a Wii game based around a batting cage. It's like getting a third of a baseball game for the price of one

Yard Sale Hidden Treasures: Sunnyville

Above: Seems to be a find the item game with a yard sale as the exciting setting

Deca Sports 3

Above: Hate these simple sports collections if you must, but these hit titles pay for experimental stuff like Lost in Shadows

Oops! Prank Party

Above: Could you tell from the screen, and the "Party" and "!" in the title this was a Wii game?

    Very excited for the Castlevania remake. I had the HD trailer downloaded on my xbox last year the day I heard about it during E3, and have been waiting for more info ever since!
  • Brutalicus - April 10, 2010 2:21 a.m.

    Agreed. I had totally forgotten about Castlevania until I saw this trailer whenever the Kojima teaser site was finished teasing me. I about shat myself from so much concentrated awesome.

    Y'know cause the 1st Saw was really good... (Sarcasm) -_-
  • philipshaw - April 10, 2010 9:42 a.m.

    New Castlevania looks cool and it should be great because Kojima is working on it
  • Kordocwaffle - April 10, 2010 12:51 p.m.

    No MGS Rising :(

    Oops! Prank Party looks half-assed even by Wii shovelware standards. Really, they couldn't even be bothered to make a background that isn't a boring grey-and-white checkerboard? Also, the existence of a yard sale simulator sums of everything that's wrong the the Wii.

    The caption for Deca Sports 3 now makes me look at shovelware another way.
  • sveini22 - April 11, 2010 2:57 p.m.

    ohh a yard sale game, thats just so epic.......................WRONG !
  • DriveShaft - April 11, 2010 3:28 p.m.

    Saw 2? But...but that first game sucked even more than the fourth movie?
  • Zepaw - April 12, 2010 12:09 p.m.

    Saw was painfully boring. As cheesy as the movies can be I feel far more for them than I did for a single character in the first game. I often try to fly through a game if I am tired of it so I can get some achievements, I could not bear it through the whole game even for the easy 200 GS at the end.

    Castlevania, ninety-nine nights 2, and lucha libre all seem interesting
