News: Namco-Bandai reveals what they have planned for the next-gen
Namco-Bandai has revealed their next-gen only E3 list. Namco favorites Tekken and Ridge Racer highlight the PS3 side of things while the Bandai half of the company is showcasing Mobile Ops and Culdcept Saga for the Xbox 360.
I can't believe it. The Magic-Monopoly hybrid Culdcept Saga has an American publisher. I am ecstatic.
Sadly, this list doesn't include any games from the third next-gen system, the Nintendo Wii. Hopefully Namco-Bandai will reveal it's hand for the Wii (and current-generation consoles) soon.
The full release from Namco-Bandai:
Triple-A franchises including Tekken and Ridge Racer will both be making their way to the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system. Ridge Racer 7 will bring racing excitement to a new level when it ships to PlayStation 3, while Tekken 6 will pack a punch as an acclaimed fighting franchise.
Taking full advantage of the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, Mobile Ops: The One Year War will take mechanized warfare to the next level as the player enters the intense battlefields of The One Year War as a soldier who fights by foot, in vehicles and in a wide array of mecha. Boasting online play and high definition graphics, Mobile Ops: The One Year War will bring the battlefield into the player's living room in the most immersive mech-action game to date.
Also making its way to the Xbox is the newest installment of the popular card battle series, Culdcept Saga. The popular puzzle series' latest installment is being developed by Omiya Soft and will feature exciting online battle via Xbox Live.
"As a recently integrated company, NAMCO BANDAI is excited to demonstrate our new publishing strength within the industry by unveiling our next generation line-up at E3 2006," said Genichi Ito, president and CEO of NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. "We are looking forward to supporting the next generation of consoles and being at the forefront of delivering quality content for all gamers to enjoy."
