- Mobile games, galore! Dirge of Cerberus: Lost Episode coming this year, based on PS2 version. Also a remake of original Final Fantasy Adventure ("looks like a straight port with much nicer graphics") and new Mana title.
- Dragon Quest Swords for the Nintendo Wii ... ! Announced as launch title.
- Crisis Core trailer looking nice, but all cinematics - "Big WORK IN PROGRESS thing at the end."
- Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Ring of Fates -- 4-player action on Nintendo DS
