New Sengoku Basara, Ghost Trick due in 2010

Capcom's Samurai Heroes beat-'em-up on Wii, PS3 will join DS adventure puzzler in North America and Europe next year.

Capcom is certainly having no problems grabbing headlines during the first day of the Tokyo Game Show. On the panel side, president and COO Haruhiro Tsujimoto discussed the future of gaming, while R&D and Online Business head Keiji Inafune talked Project Natal development, for which the publisher has been confirmed as a developer. Capcom has also announced Resident Evil 5: Alternative Edition, which will be compatible with Sony's upcoming motion controller.

A samurai doesn't get out of bed for anything less than 10,000 enemies.

And while RE5: Alternative Edition has thus far been announced only for Japan, Capcom also has a few game announcements for Western gamers. As part of its TGS 2009 presence, Capcom announced that Sengoku Basara Samurai Heroes for the Wii and PlayStation 3 and Ghost Trick (working title) for the DS will see release in North America and Europe in 2010.

Sengoku Basara Samurai Heroes can be likened to Koei's long-standing Samurai Warriors franchise and sees players hacking their way through feudal Japan. The game features large-scale battles of "hundreds of opponents," and players will be able to assume control of more than 10 different legendary samurai for use on the field of war. Capcom noted that the Wii and PS3 editions of the game will be functionally the same, though Sony's system will also offer online co-op.

A blend of the adventure and puzzle genres, Ghost Trick tells the story of an amnesiac ghost who attempts to solve the mystery behind his own death while saving the lives of others. As the deceased Sissel, players can take control of objects in the world to accomplish various challenges, with Capcom giving examples of making a bike float through the air to scare the living or possessing a light switch to zap an assassin.

Sengoku Basara on both Wii and PS3 will function the same? How!? I thought it'd work on PS3 like Dynasty Warriors and on Wii like No More Hero! :(

Is it just me, or is "alternative edition" just a really bad name? Sounds like a grade-schooler's mod for a Quake 3 Mod. Not that the game will be bad, or it's a bad idea, but is that really all they could come up with?

Wow, it's nice to see that Capcom has already announced localizations for these! I personally can't wait for Ghost Trick, especially with Shu Takumi involved. I loved the Ace Attorney series.
