Comic-Con 07: Konami Booth Report

Vampires, dewdrops, and dancing games all were found at Konami's Comic-Con 2007 booth.


SAN DIEGO--While Konami didn't have the biggest booth in terms of sheer number of games, when it came to diversity, few other booths could touch it. With everything but dance games to vampire adventures, Konami was rolling deep. On hand at the event was two Dance Dance Revolution games: Dance Dance Revolution SuperNOVA 2 and Dance Dance Revolution Hottest Party. Just in time to begin the hype for the summer 2008 film release of Hellboy 2, Konami's Hellboy: Science of Evil adventure game was also on hand in playable form.

Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship 2007 and Marvel Trading Card Game formed the centerpiece of the company collectible card-based games. Other games on hand included Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles, Silent Hill: Origins (the debut of the horror series on the PlayStation Portable), Dewy's Adventure, a compliation of Kid's Playground games for the younger set, and Contra 4 for the Nintendo DS.

seems like Comicon beat out E3 this year. Konami Rules! Contra DS doesn't. You take the good with the bad.

I want Contra 4, seeing as I unfortunently never got the chance to experience the others.

Silent Hill Origins is one of the few reasons I want a PSP, just in time for the newer model.
