ECTS 2003: Konami's line-up

Solid. If you see what we're getting at.

As you'd expect for a company with so many big name titles in development, Konami is once again planning a pretty big ECTS display - certainly a more interesting one than many of its rivals. Heading it all up will be Pro Evolution Soccer 3, which is bound to attract plenty of attention as its predecessors always have, flanked on either side (well, we're speculating) by Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater and Metal Gear Solid: Twin Snakes (which at least makes up for the latter's absence from Nintendo's bus), and Hideo Kojima's other offering, his GBA pet project Boktai (yes, the game which reacts to sunlight).

Also expected to make an appearance will be the spruced up European version of Zone of the Enders: 2nd Runner, Euro-developed FPS Apocalyptica, the new Castlevania title, Cy Girls, Firefighter FD18, and a couple of "Stage" titles; Dancing Stage Fever and Karaoke Stage. Apparently a couple of others are still "to be confirmed", but we wouldn't be too surprised if they turned out to be Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (which appeared at E3) and Gradius V, both of which we've seen mentioned in connection with the show elsewhere.
