Tis the season of the 2012 Tokyo Game Show websites and I’m pretty sure Namco Bandai has got all other companies beat. No one can compare to them, as the company is going to have over 45 games on display at the show. That isn’t to say that all will be playable, but over 45 will be appearing on the show floor, either at Namco Bandai’s booth or the Family Area, September 20-23, 2012. It’s astonishing.
Frankly, there are so many games that there really isn’t much point in listing all of them. It’ll just depress you since so many aren’t getting released outside of Japan. To make things easier, here’s what Bamco’s bringing to TGS that we might eventually get to play for ourselves.
- 2nd Robot Wars OG (PS3)
- Digimon Crusader (iOS)
- Lost Heroes (3DS, PSP)
- Mobile Suit Gundam Online (Windows)
- Naruto SD: Powerful Shippuden (3DS)
- Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 (PS3, Xbox 360)
- Project X Zone (3DS)
- SD Gundam Operations (iOS)
- Tales of Xillia 2 (PS3)
- Toki to Towa (PS3)
Now, these are all only games that “might” have a chance of getting released overseas. Don’t count on them showing up. I guess seeing the small smattering above shows just how invested Namco Bandai is in the Japanese gaming scene.
By the time TGS actually happens, the number of games Namco Bandai’s bringing should actually go up. The Namco Bandai 2012 Tokyo Game Show site has five spots reserved for games that will be announced either closer to the show or at the show. That should bring the lineup to about 50. Man, why can’t it do this for E3?
