Four days remain on the clock.

The new title Namco Bandai begun teasing last week is for 3DS, an update on the countdown site reveals.

Four days still remain on the clock, but we’ll likely hear about whatever it is in this week’s issue of Famitsu, which usually leaks on Tuesday nights.

    Meh… I was expecting a next-gen title…

  • Elvick

    Hope it’s localized. Since odds are it’ll be interesting.

  • Syltique

    Soul Calibur VI, guest character is Luigi.

    • SuperLuigi

      I’M DE BEST!

    • bloodiOS

      Please, we all know Princess Peach is going to show up with fully destructible costumes.

  • Solomon_Kano

    That was unexpected.

  • Zero

    I wonder what it is?

    • bloodiOS

      What if it’s a Tales game?

      • Zero

        Hmmm? Maybe? It could be a port of some kind. It just seems unlikely with all the recent events for the series. They would have probably announced it during one of the events.

        My guess is some kind of manga/anime game.

        • bloodiOS

          Hmm… imagine if it’s a port of Vesperia

          • AdamBoy64

            Hmmm yes. Apply vasoline to the 3DS screen and I guess it would look almost half reasonable.

            But yeah, it says it’s a new title, so that wouldn’t be the case.

            • Elvick

              Wonder if it’d even run on the 3DS. Rayman Origins barely ran, and given how long it took to come out… I don’t think it was for a lack of trying.

              And Abyss (a more comparable experience) had slow down on the field. And that was a PS2 game.

              • Zackasaur

                A visually downgraded PS2 game, in fact.

                Still very fun, of course.

      • Solomon_Kano

        Would’ve been revealed at TalesFes with Symphonia HD. This teaser also isn’t really Tales’ style. Though, to be fair, this teaser isn’t really anything’s style that I can think of.

        • bloodiOS

          So, it’s might be an entirely new IP…

          • Solomon_Kano

            Entirely possible. That’s the only guess I’ve got, myself.

            I saw someone else suggest Macross, which I’m not the most familiar with but, with a stretch, I could see VF hinting at that. The black thing in the back also looks like it could transform, maybe?

          • Elvick

            Could be a licensed game too, but of something we just can’t connect with from the teaser/countdown site.

            When was Namco Bandai’s last new IP? (developed internally I mean)

  • Carlos Luis Ayala


  • Arla

    Nice. Though Namco Bandai developing and/or publishing means it might not have the highest chances of being localized.

    • Solomon_Kano

      I don’t know about that. They’ve been a lot more about localizations this year. Ni no Kuni, PXZ, Xillia, Xillia 2, Symphonia HD, Romance Dawn.

      If it’s a licensed title though, then it’s a toss-up.

  • new_tradition

    Ahhh, I’m dumb. I thought this was a countdown for an English release. If this was a game from the NA branch, I would’ve screamed that it might me Digimon World Re:Digitize Decode coming in English ;A;

  • Aiddon

    I know a couple trademarks they recently filed were called 3rd Vision and Lost Swords. It could also be something different, so we’ll see

  • EX+

    I thought it was a PS3 or PS4 game. Oh well. Just goes to show how beast the 3DS is doing. Lol.

  • TwinTails

    I can’t wait to add this to my collection.
