Hey Konami! Why isn’t my earth shaking?

Far be it for me to criticize someone for not coming through on a promise of “earth-shaking news,” but Konami, what gives? Yesterday I brought you news of Konami’s claim that we’d all be treated to some major news from the publisher. Well as of 9 p.m. Eastern, there’s only this:

Konami Announces New Castlevania, DDR Games!

Last week Konami announced new games in its Castlevania and DDR series, bringing these renowned franchises to new platforms with all-new gameplay twists. Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles for the PSP® system delivers the classic game Castlevania: Rondo of Blood in 3D for the first time, with timeless side scrolling gameplay and incredible animations. DDR Hottest Party brings nonstop dance action to the Wii™, letting players get their whole body into the groove as they dance with the Wii Remote and Nunchuk. It’s going to be an incredible 2007, so stay tuned to these pages for the latest from Konami!

Huh? That’s it? It’s not even new news, much less “earth-shaking.”
