Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown has been delayed. The game was originally slated for a 2017, but Namco Bandai has pushed it back to 2018, citing the need for extra time to finish the game. Better late than not ready!
Namco Bandai announced a new virtual reality experience called Evangelion VR: The Soul Seat.
In Japan, Bandai is releasing a set of Poké Ball. There’s a total of 11 different Poké Balls in the set, and while they’re designed to hold candy (and not, you know, Pocket Monsters), these replicas are rather handsome.
Namco Bandai is turning its idol simulator franchise The Idolmaster into a South Korean TV drama.
In Namco Bandai’s VR game Summer Lesson, players are the tutor of schoolgirl Hikari Miyamoto. But that’s the virtual world! Now, they can have a real, life-sized Hikari statue to...put in their living room?
Inspired by the space battles of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, I’ve decided to take a stab at model building. And though Bandai Hobby’s Red Squadron X-Wing Starfighter set is a simple snap and sticker affair, I’m really worried about screwing it up. Got any pointers?
Taking a page from the Konami playbook, Namco has announced a 20th anniversary SoulCalibur release for pachinko parlors across Japan.
A trailer marking twenty years of SoulCalibur just hit Namco Bandai’s Japanese YouTube channel. Wonder if that means a new title is around the corner. Who knows? Namco Bandai does, that’s who.
A mysterious Bandai Namco teaser site has popped up online. There’s a clock, some flames, and small text at the bottom that says PC and mobile content. Hrm.
Here’s a look at upcoming TV anime Tales of Zestiria the X. It begins broadcasting next month in Japan.
Upcoming RPG Dragon Ball Fusions will be out in Japan on August 4, Famitsu reports. To mark that, Bandai Namco is also putting out a 3DS bundle, complete with Dragon Ball faceplates. No word yet on a Western release.
Of course she did.
This works way better than I thought it would.
And like that, Pokkén Tournament is suddenly that much cooler.
The studio behind the Disaster Report games, Granzella, is teaming up with Namco Bandai for a unique spin on the series: Surviving Ultraman and kaiju fights. It’s called City Shrouded in Shadow, and I think it’s a brilliant idea. No word yet about a Japanese release date or if this will get a Western release.
I’m fairly certain nobody asked for this, but here we are: Luffy from One Piece gets turned into a lady for upcoming merch.
Would the original Star Wars trilogy have been better if George Lucas had steered closer to its samurai movie inspiration? It certainly would have looked cooler, as demonstrated by Bandai’s Tamashii Nations Meisho Movie Realization Boba Fett and Darth Vader figures.
It’s January, which means it’s already time for the merchandising market to start salivating over the next Marvel movie, Captain America: Civil War. Kicking of the proceedings in the battle for whether or not Team Cap or Team Iron Man gets to rummage through your wallet and make your earnings disappear is Bandai!
