Ridge Racer 7 at PS3 launch

In Japan anyway. Genji too.

Phew. It's all fine. The PlayStation 3 will be a roaring success after all.

That's because according to IGN, which has been rifling through the latest issue of Famitsu Weekly, Ridge Racer 7 will be among the games that appear alongside the console at its Japanese launch on 11th November.

Also on the list is everyone's favourite historical simulation of giant enemy crabs, Genji 2, while there's also something called SEGA Golf Club, Namco Bandai's Gundam: Target in Sight, and Konami's Mahjong Fight Club.

Presumably the first rule of Mahjong Fight Club is that you don't talk about it, which shouldn't be a problem since we don't cover Mahjong games. Although IGN notes that KOEI's Mahjong Taikai is listed as "November" as well, with Gran Turismo HD down as December.

Presumably there'll be other launch titles too. Tune in (very) late tonight for Ken Kutaragi's keynote address, when we might hear about some of them.
