The July 11th E3 event is coming up fast and publishers are still passing press releases around that will give gamers a hint at what will be unveiled at the calm conference expo. Most of the titles from Atari have already had formal announcements and it will be interesting to see what the company officially unveils at the expo. In the meantime, you can check out their E3 line-up right here on CB Games.
"Atari's 2007 E3 roster showcases some of the most exciting titles from our diverse fall line-up - from the fan-favorite Dragon Ball Z series to the graphically stunning The Witcher,"
said David Pierce, Chief Executive Officer, Atari. "We're excited to participate in the new E3 Media & Business Summit and look forward to having media and business partners spend time with the Atari Team and our titles."
The following games that Atari has planned for exposition range from Dragon Ball Z to Jenga. It’s actually funny seeing Jenga in the list, because now it reminds me of the Spielberg game that will either be a rip-off or a really good mind-bending addition to the puzzle genre. The one game I’m looking forward to the most, though, is The Witcher, a kick-butt swordfighting game that definitely transcends the traditional hack and slash genre. You can check out the list below or visit Atari’s Official Website
for more info on their line-up and upcoming games.
Atari’s E3 2007 Video Game Line-Up:
Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3: The game combines the lightning fast fighting and action that have made Budokai Tenkaichi 1 and Budokai Tenkaichi 2 the #1 fighting games of 2005 and 2006. Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3 delivers an extreme 3D fighting experience, improving upon last year's game with over 150 playable characters, enhanced fighting techniques, beautifully refined effects and shading techniques, making each character's effects more realistic, and over 30 battle stages. The immensely popular Dragon Ball Z series is the gold standard of anime-based video games, with more than 25 different games and over 10 million units sold since May 2002. Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3 is slated to release for the Wii and PlayStation 2 system during the 2007 holiday season.
The Witcher: Based on the world created by best-selling Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski's novels, The Witcher casts players as Geralt, a legendary monster slayer and master swordfighter with supernatural abilities and reflexes. The Witcher presents a fresh approach to traditional role-playing, blending an expansive, twisting plotline - in which the impact of individual decisions can drastically alter the outcome of the game - and fast-paced combat against a wide variety of foes. Using advanced graphics and physics systems, The Witcher delivers brutal action, multi-faceted RPG options and an intriguing story to engulf all players who dare to play. The Witcher, developed by CD Projekt, will be available for Games for Windows this fall.
Godzilla: Unleashed: This game offers fighting on a giant scale. The game stars the legendary Godzilla and a slew of the most renowned monsters of all-time. Gamers are challenged to ultimately save the planet from mayhem and destruction. Set in urban arenas, Godzilla: Unleashed's interactive 3D cityscapes, big destructible buildings, soaring skyscrapers and towering alien formations provide the backdrop to epic worldwide destruction. Godzilla: Unleashed is slated for a fall release on the Wii and Nintendo DS.
Jenga: For the first time, the beloved family game Jenga comes to the world of videogames, utilizing the innovative controls of the Wii and DS for unpredictable, quick-paced, tactical gameplay that combines suspense and risk- taking, where mounting anticipation comes to a crashing climax. The game will contain all the fun, intensity and challenge of the original boxed game with a wealth of exciting new enhancements, power-ups and twists that are possible only in the videogame world. Simple to learn and fun to play, Jenga promises great entertainment for all ages when it releases for the Wii and Nintendo DS this fall.
