E3 06: Namco completes E3 lineup

Japanese publisher reveals final list of games scheduled to appear at E3; Mobile Ops 360, newest Xenosaga, Tekken PSP headline.


Namco Bandai Games heads into its first Electronic Entertainment Expo under its new partnership, and as is the case in new relationships, the union seems to still be working things out. The company has released multiple lists of games in the week before E3, including its E3 roster of anime-based games and future next-gen games.

Today, Namco released another E3 lineup, this one featuring 19 games. However, only one next-gen game was included on the list--Mobile Ops: The One Year War for the Xbox 360. Next-gen gamers shouldn't fret--the previous list of Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 games, which included the next versions of Ridge Racer and Tekken, may still be shown in some form at the pre-E3 conferences.

As for the rest of Namco Bandai's games, E3 attendees should get their first up-close look at Tekken: Dark Resurrection for the PSP, the next chapter in the Xenosaga series, and the PC title Hellgate: London.
