Jump Festa 2007 booth details. *UPDATE* New FFXIII character seen.

At the foot of the Altar of Squeenix-nessJump Festa is basically a celebration of all things anime, manga, and gaming. Hosted by Shueisha, the guys responsible for the insanely popular Shounen Jump, the event attracts Major game publishers from all over Japan. We’ve come to expect that companies like Bandai, Square Enix, Namco, Konami, and Capcom will make major announcements for their  anime-based games or their RPGs at this event.

1UP reports that this year’s main highlight is the Square Enix booth. A huge chunk of their upcoming lineup was on display, including Kingdom Hearts II: Final Mix, as well as Seiken Densetsu: Heroes of Mana, FF Crystal Chronicles: Ring of Fates, and the much awaited PSP game FFVII: Crisis Core. Unfortunately FF Tactics: The Lion war, and FF XII: Revenant Wings, them Ivalice games, weren’t playable.

Squeenix also had a private movie theater showing of footage from their 2007 games, mostly FFXIII-related clips, although 1UP does say that at the end of the reel there was a very brief clip of a face of an armored man grimacing at the camera while in the middle of a battlefield, followed by the text “something new coming in 2007.” 1UP speculates that it might be the long rumored MMO sequel to FFXI. New trailers for Dragon Quest Swords: The Masked Queen and the Tower of Mirrors for the Wii was also shown.

Not to be outdone, Microsoft had a large booth showing mostly Wii games, and Microsoft was pimping Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssey, Table Tennis, and the localized version of Viva Piñata. Sega and Sony, were showing off their Bleach titles for their respective systems.

Capcom had Monster Hunter portable 2nd. Konami had it’s new Death Note games (emo alert!)  and a few Yu-Gi-Oh and Prince of Tennis titles. Bandai Namco was also there in full force, with about 42 different Dragon Ball, Naruto, One Piece, and Tales of –insert word here games.

Given that the TGS FF Versus XIII trailer took a while before it was made public, we’re guessing that it’ll take a while before we see that supposed FFXI trailer that 1UP is speculating about. We’re currently raiding/scouring YouTube and other video sharing sites to see if there any interesting clips and videos of the event that got leaked. We’ll update you if we find some treasure. Stay tuned.

For images of the booths (in this case the Square-Enix one) you can go here.


Gamefront.de reports that at Jump Festa 2007 new trailers for FFXIII were shown on the showfloor. In the new trailer, a new character for Final Fantasy XIII was seen. A blond motorcycle-riding man wearing a Bandana was featured. We’ll update you when more news breaks.
