Atari becomes Bandai Namco Partners today and pin-points some release dates in the process.

Moving from ambiguous autumn to September are Katamari Forever (PS3), Family Trainer: Extreme Challenge (Wii) and One Piece Unlimited Cruise 2 (Wii). Katamari Forever is a tribute to the brilliant roll-'em-up series that originated on PS2.

Moving from 2009 into October are innovative city-building MMO Cities XL (PC) and Magna Carta: Tears of Blood on Xbox 360 -- an RPG follow-up to Magna Carta on PS2, which was rubbish.

Elsewhere, troubled console port The Witcher: Rise of the White Wolf is still TBC, as is Star Trek Online. Dead to Rights: Retribution (PS3, 360), as mentioned, slides into 2010.
