Sega is bringing its A game to E3 2009. Two A games, in fact, along with a B game, a C game, two Olympic titles, and a movie tie-in.
Sega's official E3 line-up announcement doesn't hint at any big surprises, but it does mention a fair number of titles we're definitely keeping an eye on. It's all about alphabetical convenience this year, with Aliens Vs. Predator, Alpha Protocol, Bayonetta, and The Conduit making up the core titles in Sega's line-up this year. Three completely original IP to one licensed title is a very welcome ratio indeed.
The rest of the games Sega will be showing aren't quite as exciting. Planet 51 is tie-in with the animated movie of the same name, and the company continues to milk their Olympic licence with Vancouver 2010 and Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games for the Wii and DS.
I'm just hoping that Bayonetta will be playable this time around. I've seen quite enough; now it's time for some wholly appropriate touching.
