>Hugely Popular First Person Shooter Franchise
>Japanese game

Does not compute.

Is there a single popular FPS made by a Japanese developer? I can't think of any.

The magazine does not say that the game is Japanese.

I guess not, but I can't see why any popular American FPS franchise would announce a game at the Tokyo Game Show and use anime art. Anime art is basically a death sentence to mainstream gaming success in America, and Tokyo Game Show is pretty much exclusively Japanese game announcements.

"Collaboration" could just mean making some character's clothes or guns or whatever available in the game, not necessarily involving the anime-like aspects at all. And the promotion could be exclusive to Japan.

Although if it isn't, and this really is as big as they're touting it to be...that's potentially a damn good promotion.

Hm you're right, maybe I just read it wrong. I read it as that they were going to announce a new game in a popular series that he was doing work on, but maybe its just some DLC or something small. If it is like that, it seems like a lot of hype for something so minor though.

All I see is Black Ops 2 collaboration.

If it by any chance lands on PS3, I'll nab it. No matter how much it is. Knifing and gunning down with Valmet sounds super fun *___*

If it's on PSP, I wont care as much, but will probably still get it.
If it's on 3DS, I'll just cry.

I can only think of two series: COD and Battlefield.

If it's the latter, pretty cool, if it's the former I'm gonna be pissed.
