The Electronic Entertainment Expo has released new information, via a product email sent to attendees, concerning selected titles and products which will be shown for the first time during next month's E3 conference in Los Angeles, and a number of previously unknown game titles are mentioned.
Most interesting in the list is a new as-yet-unnamed fight game for Nintendo's Revolution development by Hudson Entertainment. The game will allow players to fly planes “through various acrobatic flight maneuvers ranging from sky artistry to bomb drops” through the use of the “gesture system” afforded by the console's unique controller.
Also in development by Hudson is a new take on the TurboGrafx-16 classic Dungeon Explorer
for both the Xbox 360 and PSP. Dungeon Explorer
for the Xbox 360 will feature randomly generated maps, customizable characters, and Xbox Live support, while the version for the PSP will support up to four players over WiFi.
THQ will unveil the second expansion to Relic Entertainment's Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War
, subtitled Dark Crusade
. The real-time strategy PC game, which is based upon Games Workshop's tabletop miniature-based war game, will include an all new single-player campaign as well as two new races - The Necron and The Tau – bringing the total to seven playable races.
Other highlights of next month's expo, which takes place from May 10-12, include a port of People Can Fly and DreamCatcher's PC first-person shooter Painkiller
for both the PlayStation 2 and PSP, and a line of PC hardware developed in cooperation with professional gamer Johnathan "Fatal1ty" Wendel.
