Confirmation is an excellent thing, as it makes for covering the expo much more doable. With only a few days left before E3, Namco-Bandai has let us know what we should expect them to be showcasing next week in Los Angeles. Some of the games include Tekken 6 and Dead to Rights. Want to know everything? Take a peak at the press release. Oh, and just so you know? No mention of Splatterhouse. Sigh
