Konami has held some key autumn releases back until Q1 2009, including new Lost in Blue and Castlevania instalments for Wii and DS.
Those heading to early next year are Lost in Blue: Shipwrecked! (Wii), Lost in Blue 3 (DS), Castlevania: Judgement (Wii) and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (DS).
Rock Revolution, the guitar and drum-based rhythm action game, is also down for a Q1 2009 release. That's the first we've heard of it.
Konami shouldn't be too bothered, though, what with the recent release of chart-topper Pro Evolution Soccer 2009. Will PES 2009 stay ahead of FIFA 09 for a second week, though? We shall see. And you will too, assuming you care enough to click through.
