Several members from the anime-inspired X-Blades development team will be present, along with Melinda Cohen, the model and in-game voice talent for Violette Summer in Velvet Assassin. Ninjatown creator Shawn Smith will have a signing session on Saturday from 2-3pm. In addition to an early look at the sci-fi FPS Section 8, Comic Con will also mark the first time that the new Roogoo titles – Roogoo Twisted Towers for Wii™ and Roogoo Attack! for Nintendo DS™ – will be on public display. SouthPeak is also coordinating an X-Blades tournament at the show where players will compete to win a rare figurine of Ayumi, the heroine from the game.
“We’re very excited to be attending the New York Comic Con again this year,” said Melanie Mroz, CEO of SouthPeak Games. “It gives us a chance to let fans see and experience some of our hottest 2009 titles well before they are scheduled to hit store shelves.”
