CESA announced their list of the best games of TGS 2008, known as the "Future" category of their Japan Game Awards. Of the twelve games given the award (in no specific order), three are on Wii.
Of course Capcom's Monster Hunter 3
got a nod; nothing short of not calling it Monster Hunter 3
will keep this from being a ridiculous hit in Japan, and that held true at TGS as well, with the game commanding ridiculous lines. But the two other Wii winners may be more of a surprise: Chunsoft's Sega-published visual novel 428: The World Doesn't Change Even So
, and Prope's experimental Let's Tap.
Sega must be very happy right about now!
For the sake of Nintendo fandom, we'll include the DS winners here as well: the Phoenix Wright
spinoff Gyakuten Kenji
and Dragon Quest IX,
which wasn't even playable.
