A new Military Madness game!

By far the biggest announcement is a new installment in the Military Madness series (Also known as Nectaris). As you might know, the games are quite a bit like Nintendo's "Wars" series, with turn-based combat involving military units. This new version of the game will not only feature new missions and units, but also online co-op and versus modes! The game's not just being released on WiiWare - Xbox 360 and PS3 users will be able to get it too.

We now also know what the mysterious Water Warfare is. This game was rated by the OFLC and USK not too long ago, but Hudson did not want to disclose any information - Until now! The game is another FPS, although this time it's not a "shooter", but a "soaker". Perhaps a response to Onslaught's lack of a versus mode, this game has you duking it out on playgrounds and beaches online, trying to hit up to 7 other kids with water from a water gun.

Hudson's last new game is a bit of a surprise as well - It's a port of the popular PC game Diner Dash. It doesn't seem to be much different from the original, featuring the same gameplay of rollerblading around the restaurant and serving customers what you want. The game will also have multiplayer, but Hudson didn't mention online, so we assume it's local only. Like Military Madness, this will be available on all three consoles.

So, which of these do you think will be released first? Place your bets now! It should be noted that nothing about a North American release of Adventure Island: The Beginning has been mentioned in today's news splurge. Perhaps North American gamers will have to wait a little while longer for this?
