Atari announced its participation in the 2nd annual New York Comic Con 2007, showing off titles such as Godzilla: Unleashed (Wii/NDS), Bullet Witch (X360), as well as DBZ Shin Budokai: Another Road (PSP). The games will be available at kiosks throughout the show floor at this year's event, which is being held February 23-25, 2007, at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City.

"Comic Con is a natural environment for Atari to showcase several of the Company's upcoming games, especially those titles that lend themselves to the anime and popular culture worlds," said Nique Fajors, vice president of marketing and sales, Atari, Inc. "While Godzilla: Unleashed, Bullet Witch and DBZ Shin Budokai: Another Road offer different gameplay features, storylines and visual flair, all three share a common bond of Japanese art and influence -- a bond that has been extremely prevalent in comics and other popular art forms."

The ultimate Goliath in fighting monster games, Godzilla: Unleashed stars the legendary Godzilla and a slew of the most renowned monsters of all-time. Gamers are challenged to ultimately save the planet from mayhem and destruction. Set in urban arenas, Godzilla: Unleashed boasts interactive 3D cityscapes, an exciting new non-linear storyline, big destructible buildings, soaring skyscrapers and towering alien formations provide the backdrop to epic worldwide destruction. Godzilla: Unleashed will tear its way onto Wii, Nintendo DS and PSP in fall 2007.

Bullet Witch, a neo-apocalyptic action adventure game, takes place in a world where magic and massive fire-power unite on a next-generation platform. The advanced physics and creative graphics allow for intense environmental damage and incredibly innovative monsters. Fearsome weaponry and impressive spells are used to fight demons and supernatural monsters designed by one of Japan's most prominent creative talents, making Bullet Witch a distinctive game where Japanese fantasy and American action blend. Bullet Witch is scheduled to ship to stores in North America on February 27th for the Xbox 360 and will be available for a suggested retail price of $49.99.

Dragon Ball Z Shin Budokai: Another Road takes the intense wireless multiplayer battles and thrilling combative gameplay made popular in last year's hit and adds an improved fighting system with over 50 new fighting skills and ultimate attacks and will send players into a completely new story arc following the future world of Trunks on his adventures against rival Majin Buu. Dragon Ball Z Shin Budokai: Another Road is slated to release in March 2007 for the PSP system.

All three Atari games will be shown within the Jacob Javits Center in New York City for the duration of New York Comic Con 2007. Dragon Ball Z Shin Budokai: Another Road will be shown at Room 1E03, Bullet Witch will be shown in the Lobby Booth and Godzilla: Unleashed will be shown at Classic Media Booth, #765.
