Loco Roco for PS3 is coming via the PSN titled Buu Buu Cocoreccho! by LocoRoco. It will feature over 200 LocoRoco character and use SixAxis motion controls. It is 95% complete and this is just a guess but it should be released this year.

Gran Turismo 5 Prologue is set to release this October in Japan over the PSN. It will have online play and a good variety of cars. The only thing we don’t know is if it will be a free download like HD Concept or are we going to have to pay for this one. No US or European date has been announced.
Disgaea 3 for the PS3 is on the way. This is a strategy RPG which you can select a good variety of units to play with. It plans to release for the Japanese this winter.

More of this game will be at the Tokyo Game Show in September. This game is also using a new technique Nagoshi called “Canvas,” giving the game a water color painting look. His second was officially named but it will be unveiled September 14th, with a Spring release date.
