Bandai Namco is developing a new online action role-playing game for PC. It’s called Blue Protocol, and right above is a currently-in-development screenshot.


Via the official release, the game’s official English description is:

The world is on the brink of devastation, now is the time to unite. March on with friends and strangers, and defeat foes beyond your might. Travel through space and time, to change the future beyond this fight!

Yes, it rhymes.

A team called Project Sky Blue, assembled from Bandai Namco Online and Bandai Namco Studio, is work on Blue Protocol, using with Unreal Engine 4.

However, there’s no word yet on a release date. More details are expected to be announced in the coming days. 

Originally from Texas, Ashcraft has called Osaka home since 2001. He has authored six books, including most recently, The Japanese Sake Bible.



This looks like a game that I would enjoy but it would end up solely on the switch.

A random commenter asks, “Why don’t you get a Switch, Remytron_Prime?”

Well I’m glad you asked. I have a backlog that’s spanning two console generations and an urge to be competitive so I lose precious gaming time in PVP modes. The biggest issue is I’m an adult who doesn’t have enough time as it is. I’m drowning in responsibilities.
