Namco Bandai X Tecmo Koei: Something Brewing

August 29, 2011 Written by Heath Hindman


Japanese game developers Namco Bandai and Tecmo Koei appear to be teaming up for a joint project, if a newly released teaser website is any indication.

Just launched today, this countdown site is, well, doing just what countdown sites do. When game series cross over, an easy thing to do is make them fighters, and the two developers are no strangers to the genre, with Namco Bandai being responsible for Soul Calibur and Tekken, while Tecmo Koei created Dead or Alive (there were fighting games once upon a time; ignore the volleyball stuff). The two have also made and/or published games with all kinds of different animation properties such as Naruto, Dragon Ball, Gundam, .hack, and many others. Tecmo Koei is well known for action series such as Ninja Gaiden, Zill O’ll, and Dynasty Warriors.

The possibilities are endless, but the countdown is thankfully not. In a little over one week, the companies will be ready to announce their announcement that they’re announcing will be soon announced.

What’s your prediction? Tales of Ninja Gaiden? Tekken vs. Dead or Alive? .hack//AndSlash? Dynasty Warriors Naruto? What could the new Namco Bandai X Tecmo Koei countdown site mean? Place your bets in the comments below.
