"commercial decision" for 2010, so 2011 should be okay?
Only Konami so far has confirmed their line-up for the Cologne, Germany event this August. Sega has Sonic 4 and Shogun 2: Total War in the works.
"...the non-participation is purely a commercial decision for the year 2010," reads a translation of fansite , reports . Vanquish and Valkyria Chronicles II are another two big titles flying under the Sega flag. Shogun 2 would have been huge.
Still we can definitely look forward to some Konami goods at gamescom, with the likes of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, PES 2011, Def Jam Rapstar and some Kinect projects all pegged for some time on the floor. What about the Metal Gears?
Konami will make a decision "nearer the time" about Xbox 360, PS3 and PC Metal Gear Solid: Rising and Metal Gear Solid 3DS. No word from Sega just yet.
