Bulletstorm was at the Tokyo Game Show this past September turning all kinds of Japanese heads its way. The game’s a first person shooter developed by People Can Fly with much guidance from Epic Games. But why bring a shooter to Japan when it’s a known fact that said genre isn’t popular with gamers in the east? It’s because, according to Bulletstorm executive producer Mark Morris, there’s this “over-the-topness” in the game that’s much like many Japanese titles.
For him, Bulletstorm will “do well in Japan”.
Yeah, I know, Mirror’s Edge didn’t sell very well. I think the game barely did 2 million units, but that doesn’t mean it was bad. In fact, it was one of the better experiences when it released back in November, 2008, save a few annoyances.
Gamescom’s barely out, and EA’s already hyping up its Tokyo Game Show (TGS) showing, making known that its planning “several all new game reveals and announcements”.
Bring it, then.
The Tokyo Game Show is the biggest in the world followed closely by E3 which, by the way, happens next month in L.A.
See the Japanese love to plan ahead, so even if TGS doesn’t take place till September 16th in Makuhari Messe just outside Tokyo, a poster for the show has already surfaced.
It’s past the read.
