E3 06: Turok headlines BVG's E3 lineup
The House of Mouse will show the comic-based dinosaur hunter's return and two new Wii titles as part of its slate of games for the expo.
LOS ANGELES--Buena Vista Games (BVG) today pulled the wraps off its lineup for this week's Electronic Entertainment Expo, calling it the "largest and most diverse" collection of games the Disney interactive entertainment division has ever shown at E3.
While many of the titles have been recently announced and promoted by the developer (four new puzzle games, the Desperate Housewives game), there are still a few surprises. The biggest title on the list, Turok, was confirmed to be underway a year ago but hasn't been heard from since September, and even then it wasn't known what platforms would host the game. Now BVG has confirmed the story-driven first-person shooter is in development for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and set for a 2007 release.
The PS3 and Xbox 360 aren't the only next-gen consoles receiving attention from BVG. The publisher is also prepping a pair of games that will have versions appear on the Nintendo Wii, as well. Disney's Meet the Robinsons and Disney's Chicken Little: Ace in Action will both appear on the Wii, in addition to other current consoles.
