Speaking with Gamasutra, this is what Andrew Szymanski (Global Production Team Manager) has to say:
“For Capcom, this year’s TGS booth is the largest we’ve ever had, and the largest booth on the floor at TGS, because that’s how much product we have to show off. And I love that we have LP3 and RE6, which are of course popular titles, but then you have Gyakuten Saiban, and mobile stuff.”
Looking at how the Tokyo Game Show will continue in the future, he thinks, though, that the event will only be relevant to Japan in the coming years and will not be the place to show things relevant to the industry in the worldwide scale.
Capcom Japan released an 8-minute video of E.X Troopers, the Lost Planet spinoff that will be released in both the Nintendo 3DS and the Playstation 3. While the video below is from the PS3 version of the game, it at least gives us a sense of what we can expect in the 3DS version as well.
