As we continue to go through the vast list of information that is the final prelude to the Electronic Entertainment Expo 2011, companies continue to release their final lineups before the media blitz happens.  Majesco Entertainment has released several titles on their lineup, including a follow up to their surprise hit Zumba Fitness.  For those who are fans of the Cooking Mama franchise, you'll be happy to know that the fourth installment is right around the corner.  I am looking forward to seeing how their hack and slash title, BloodRayne Betrayal turns out.  I was always a big fan and am very hopeful that the game will be a success.

 ‘BloodRayne Betrayal,’ ‘Cooking Mama 4: Kitchen Magic,’ ‘Hulk Hogan’s Main Event,’Take Shape,’ ‘The Hidden’ and more to be playable, as well as a first look at best-selling franchise sequel ‘Zumba® Fitness 2’
