Bandai Namco Is Making A Free-To-Play Wii U-Exclusive Game

A free-to-play game being developed by Bandai Namco exclusively for the Wii U? OK.

Katsuhiro Harada, who is most known as the producer of the iconic Tekken fighting series, made an appearance on today’s Nintendo Direct stream where he made an interesting announcement. Apparently, he and Bandai Namco are currently developing a free-to-play Wii U-exclusive game that will feature four-player co-op action that focuses on clearing traps and finding treasure.

There is literally no other information on this title, but the fact alone that Bandai Namco is making a free-to-play game for the Wii U has me interested. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see what this thing is all about, but hopefully it’s something that’s actually worth a damn.

Is ‘ZombiU 2’ In The Works?

ZombiU could be getting a sequel next year.

The original ZombiU was a launch title for the Wii U, bringing surprisingly difficult and brutal survival horror to the normally family-friendly Nintendo. The game was generally well-received by critics, and though it isn’t the game that most say is a must-have for the system, it’s certainly one of the better survival horror games to come out in a good while.

Well, if a listing on Amazon France is to be believed, a sequel to the game is in the works. Titled ZombiU 2, the listing states that the game is set in New York instead of London this time around, and even lists Bandai Namco as the developer instead of the first game’s Ubisoft. This all has to be taken with a grain of salt, of course, as none of this information has been confirmed or denied as of this article’s publication.

What’s even more interesting is that, instead of just having a placeholder release date of December 31st, 2015, the game’s release date is listed very specifically as October 17th, 2015.

‘Tales of Zestiria’ Launching By Summer 2015 In USA And Europe

Yet another Tales game will be coming at you next year.

Yet another entry in the long-running Tales RPG series is set to launch in both the USA and Europe by next summer, a representative of Bandai Namco confirmed.

Tales of Zestiria launches in Japan on January 22nd of next year, with Bandai Namco claiming that the launch in other regions will be no more than six months later.

The most recent game in the series is called Tales of Xillia 2, which launched for the PlayStation 3 last month.

‘Shadow Warrior’ Console Ports Receive Small Delay

Expect to experience the console version of Shadow Warrior a bit later in the year.

Today is the day of small delays, as now Bandai Namco has revealed that their PlayStation 4 and Xbox One ports of the PC shooter Shadow Warrior has been delayed. It now appears that the game will not be hitting shelves in the US until October 21st and October 24th in the UK. The game was originally set to be released next month.

Bandai Namco said the following in a statement to VideoGamer:

“Bringing Shadow Warrior to PS4 and XB1 has proven to be a challenge for us as we want to make sure the player experience is perfect. In play testing we have been focusing in on the controller inputs and response. We recognized that we needed more time to improve this as Shadow Warrior is an old school FPS and this demands perfection. Sadly this means a small delay in the release date, but Lo Wang needs to be at his best on these shiny new consoles.”

Shadow Warrior is a re-imaging of the original 1997 shooter from 3D Realms that hit the PC last year, blending both sword fighting and shooting into a pretty sleek package. The game would no doubt be a great fit on consoles, where the shooter genre continues to have immense success.
