    Fake Respawn announcement

    <!--QuoteBegin-Ninja Gaiden developer to reveal new game at E3+--><div class='quotetop'>QUOTE(Ninja Gaiden developer to reveal new game at E3)</div><div class='quotemain'><!--QuoteEBegin-->The man behind Dead or Alive and the modern Ninja Gaiden games will at long last be coming out of his ninja cave next week. In a post at the Valhalla Game Studios corporate site, Tomonobu Itagaki announced that the newly formed independent studio will be going public with its first game at E3.

    "Hello, this is Tomonobu Itagaki. I have an important announcement to make," began a post dated today (6/8). "This year, at the E3 show, we have decided to go public with the latest game we are working on right now at Valhalla Game Studios."

    He didn't provide details on the game, but it does look like it will be a major release. Continued the post, "In the past, I created four unique games - 'Dead or Alive,' 'Ninja Gaiden,' 'DOA Xtreme,' and 'NG Dragon Sword.' Thus, this announcement will be the fifth all-new project in my lifetime."

    The post is available in both English and Japanese, so see for yourself if you can parse it for any further clues.

    Itagaki is Chief Technical Officer & Game Design Lead at Valhalla, a studio he formed with fellow former Tecmo employee Satoshi Kanematsu, who serves as the studio's CEO.

    Past updates at the official site have suggested that the studio's first game would be for HD game consoles, but an actual platform has not yet been announced. It is worth noting, however, that since announcing the formation of Valhalla, Itagaki has restarted his monthly development column in Famitsu Xbox 360. Instead of the former "Team Ninja Freaks," the column is now known as "Valhalla Freaks."<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->

    Last week, GoldenEye 007 developer Rare celebrated their 25th anniversary by revealing a new logo and new look for the company. In six days, Rare will be making another big reveal…or so it would seem based on what’s going on over at their website right now. has officially contracted the all too common pre-giant gaming event countdown clock disease. In this case, the clock simple reads “6 days,” with the phrase, “One in a million” sitting ominously below it. Adding to the intrigue is the fact that the six and “one” are highlighted in green. What does it mean?!?!

    Luckily for us, E3 2010 will be in full swing when the counter runs out on Tuesday, so we’ll be in prime position to bring you all the news about said announcements. As for my guesses, it almost certainly has to be Project Natal related since that’s where the developer’s time and attention has been for some time now. In terms of game announcements, I’m going with Natal-powered versions of Grabbed by the Ghoulies and/or Killer Instinct, because they seem like natural fits.<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->

    <!--QuoteBegin-Capcom reveals lineup+--><div class='quotetop'>QUOTE(Capcom reveals lineup)</div><div class='quotemain'><!--QuoteEBegin-->Capcom announced its E3 lineup this morning, and promised "a couple surprises" up their sleeves. Here's the lineup:

    Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds
    Bionic Commando Rearmed 2
    Sengoku BASARA: Samurai Heroes
    Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective
    Dead Rising 2
    Dead Rising 2: CASE ZERO
    MotoGP 09/10

    As for the surprises, we'll have to wait until E3 for the truth, but that isn't going to stop us from speculating. Sterling McGarvey's got a theory: He thinks Dead Rising 2: CASE ZERO will be released to the public during E3. Capcom has a history of putting out demos during gaming event. Dead Rising 2 is due out at the end of August, so now would be the prefect time to put out a downloadable game that hypes the big game.

    Case Zero is the downloadable title that bridges the story gap between Dead Rising and Dead Rising 2. Capcom promises an affordable game that will take a couple hours and introduce the DR 2's main character.<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->

    Interesting. I hope to see something cool like Ninja Gaiden. Mixed with DoA vulgarity.
