Konami’s E3 press Conference

For many gamers, of course, the best moment will have been when Hideo Kojima took to the stage to reveal new DS and PSP titles, plus a little bit more of Metal Gear Solid 4. But of course, MGS isn’t Konami’s only classic series - let’s not forget Silent Hill, which is coming to PSP for the first time. The new game, which is titled Silent Hill: Origins, sees you playing as a truck driver called Travis who finds himself lost in everyone’s favourite spooky little town. It’s a prequel to the original Silent Hill, so you’ll get to find out all about the town’s past - and you’ll also meet characters from games further along in the series. Advertisement If you’d rather rock out on a dance mat than defend yourself against a vast army of faceless homicidal mutants determined to ensure that the last thing you see is their bloodied limbs crushing your pathetic skull into a sticky mess of bone, hair and mucus, great news - Dance Dance Revolution is coming to Xbox 360! Titled DDR Universe, it’ll feature exclusive songs and you’ll be able to download extra tracks via the Xbox Live Marketplace. In addition, the original Xbox will get DDR Ultramix 4, which will feature 65 new songs, enhanced versions of the modes featured in previous games and multiplayer action for up to four players. Konami also showed off previously announced and offensively titled Wii game Elebits. It’s a whole new franchise, don’t you know, which appears to have been inspired by the likes of Pikmin and playground games such as hide and seek. We’re looking forward to seeing more of this one on the show floor. For movie fans there’s Hellboy, which is in development at Krome Studios (best known for doing the King Arthur game and the Ty the Tazmanian Tiger series). It’ll appear on Xbox 360, PS3 and PSP, and is being developed with a little help from Mike Mignola, the man who created the comic book. It’s out next year, most likely in conjunction with the movie sequel, which sees Hellboy and chums attempting to bring down a rebellious army of mythical creatures who want to rule the world. Castlevania veteran Koji Igarashi was on hand to present new DS title Portrait of Ruin, which is set to take the series beyond the castle walls. It’s set during World War II, and environments shown included a city, a rural landscape and a big old desert - some of which appeared to be in 3D. Along with the main character, you’ll be able to control a sidekick who can help you overcome obstacles and pull off combo attacks. Death Jr. is also coming to DS, in the form of Death Jr. and the Science Fair of Doom. There’s also a new PSP game on the way, titled Death Jr.: Root of Evil. And finally, we have Brooktown High: Senior Year - a dating sim for PSP. It’s down for a US release, perhaps surprisingly, but there’s no word on whether it’ll make it to Europe.
