Namco Bandai has taken the wraps off a portion of its lineup for next week's Electronics Entertainment Expo, and some of the company's previously announced titles are notably absent. In particular, the Xbox versions of the multiplatform mascot games Snoopy vs. the Red Baron and Pac-Man World Rally are mysteriously absent, while every other version of both games is still being promoted.

Namco Bandai representatives did not return requests for comment on the status of the Xbox versions of those games and whether or not the company had discontinued its support of the original Xbox console. With those two games off the publisher's release list, it has no currently announced projects in development for Microsoft's first console.

Snoopy vs. the Red Baron is still slated for release on the PlayStation 2, PSP, and PC, and Pac-Man World Rally still looks to be coming to the PS2, PSP, PC, and GameCube.
