Namco Bandai issued a press release today to announce that it will have a whole lot of games we already know about on display in its booth at Germany's Gamescom expo next week. Snore. But, as if some kind of reward for those who kept reading past the list of already-known titles, a single line revealed that "major exclusive new announcements will be made to the world's gaming media" by the publisher at its pre-show press conference on August 19. Major and exclusive.

Let's just hope it's something more major than a release date for Splatterhouse or news that someone finally realized Dead to Rights: Retribution needs a lot of work.
