Japan’s game industry is defunct — except ours

…or so sayeth legendary Capcom designer Keiji Inafune (creator of Dead Rising and the Onimusha series).  And while he might be right or he might be wrong, Inafune-san had no qualms turning that quote upside down and claiming Capcom had the cream of the crop of the weekend convention, ironically.  I mean, the first question I had after hearing his statement was, "are you saying that about your games too?"

TGS was still popular with the public, with over 185,000 people lining up to check out the latest games at this year's convention.  Gamasutra reports that there were roughly 10,000 attendees less than last year, but the number seems rather paltry.

There were plenty of head-turning announcements!  Here's a quick run down of what you might've missed:

On the fighting games side, there were two huge announcements / leaks over the weekend.  The first is the long-awaited rumored Super Street Fighter IV.  A picture made its rounds on the internets, leading many people to believe that T. Hawk really IS in the new sequel.  It's unclear, but there will be an official announcement from Capcom tomorrow.

Another new character was announced for BlazBlue: Hazama.  His character voice actor is Koji Yusa, better known as Ichimaru Gin from Bleach.  His drive is called Ouroboros, and his playstyle is that of a rush down, speed-type fighter.  Plus his character design looks hella cool!
