Test Drive Unlimited 2 dated for September

Plus: Namco adamant Enslaved is "Oct only".

The latest Namco Bandai Partners calendar has revealed a 24th September release date for Test Drive Unlimited 2. And that's for all three formats: PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

A spokesperson for the publisher also clarified to Eurogamer that Enslaved: Odyssey to the West will be released in "October only" - shimmying the apparent confirmation of 8th October made yesterday.

From Namco Bandai Partners this summer we can expect Puzzle Quest 2 on Xbox Live Arcade and DS, and Ace Combat: Joint Assault on PSP. This autumn we'll be treated to Splatterhouse and more Naruto and Dragon Ball. And this Winter and beyond we'll be given Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom, Inversion and Knights Contract.
