Massive Cancellations From Konami

January 10, 2007 - Konami's support for both the PS3 and Wii appears to have taken a major hit. The release list in the latest issue of Famitsu reveals reveals that a number of next generation titles previously announced by the company are no longer in development.

Here's the full list of cancelled titles.
Gradius Series (PS3)

Jikkyou Powerful Pro Baseball (PS3)

New Action Game (PS3)

New Role Playing Game (PS3)

New Action Adventure Game 2 (Wii)

Role Playing Game (Wii)

With those titles gone, Konami's Wii and PS3 lineup reads as follows:

Pro Baseball Spirits Series (PS3)
Metal Gear Solid 4 (PS3)
World Soccer Winning Eleven Series (PS3)
Music Simulation Game (Wii)
New Action Adventure Game (Wii)
Sports Game -- Soccer (Wii)
Sports Game -- Baseball (Wii)

So what happened? Sadly, the magazine provides no details. However, you'll notice that none of the the cancelled games have actual names yet. It's possible that Konami had intended to make the games, but decided to go in a different direction.

Konami has been downsizing for awhile. They closed Hawaii's location and now cancelling games.

Dunno what is going on.
