Thanks to Game Science for their article revealing comments and plans for 2004 from many of Japan's top videogame publishers and developers
. Among the items of interest is Sony's re-confirmation that "We will definitely release PSP in 2004... we'd like to release it mid-December"
, and that Capcom are "putting a lot of effort"
into PSP launch titles - Konami, Namco, and Sega also mention planned PSP titles, although Square Enix are only "considering whether to release any PSP games."
Elsewhere, Nintendo mention that "Miyamoto is hard at work on Zelda: Four Swords and Pikmin 2"
, and that they "plan to show the new game machine at E3"
(a reference to their mysterious supplemental game hardware
, rather than GameCube 2?), and Sega intriguingly note that they "plan to invest in an MMORPG for East Asia."
