Majesco announced its product showcase being unveiled at the 2007 Electronic Entertainment Expo Media & Business Summit, July 11-13, in the Barker Hangar at the Santa Monica Air Center, in Santa Monica, CA.

"With video games a premier source of entertainment for an increasingly diversified audience, our fall lineup is designed to be extremely accessible to the mainstream consumer," said Ken Gold, vice president of Marketing, Majesco. "From popular licenses to our own IP, Majesco will continue to identify opportunities that offer exceptional content and value."

Included among Majesco's next-gen products is Blast Works: Build, Fuse & Destroy for the Wii. Developed by Budcat Creations and based on the popular Tumiki Fighters online game, Blast Works is a side-scrolling shooter that lets players build their own game by creating custom levels, ships and enemy ships. This "sticky" geometric shooter also lets players absorb the pieces and weapons of destroyed enemy ships to bolster their own defenses during battle and transform into boss-sized ships.

Majesco will also be showing its recently announced Furu Furu Park on the Wii console. Developed by Taito and 505 Games, Furu Furu Park is a collection of 30 stylized arcade games that take advantage of the Wii Remote's range of motion to entertain players of all skill levels and ages. Included amongst them are classics like Arkanoid and Bubble Bobble, along with quirky new offerings like Super Karate, Sonic Blastman 20XX and Safe Cracker.

Majesco will be showcasing its first Xbox 360 title, Kengo: Legend of the 9. Players assume the role of nine famous samurai warriors as they fight through lush high-definition environments in feudal Japan. Developed by Genki, the game includes four gameplay modes including: a deep, story-driven single player Main Mode, specific timed challenges in Mission Mode, 2-player head-to-head Combat Mode, and Xbox LIVE Leaderboard that lets gamers pit AI profiles against one another via Xbox LIVE.

From a mystery "whodunit" to lifestyle sims, Majesco will also be highlighting a strong portable line-up for the Nintendo DS that has something for everyone. Titles include:
