Time Crisis Ready To Strike With A New Game?

By Spencer . January 5, 2009 . 2:18pm

timec Light gun games are back in fashion. Sega is leading the pack with more House of the Dead games, one of which is designed for an arcade date. Even smaller developers are getting in on the action to with WiiWare games for the morbidly curious.


Meanwhile, Namco Bandai hasn’t been as proactive with their Time Crisis series. Sure, Time Crisis 4 came out for the PlayStation 3, but that was an arcade port. When are we going to get a new Time Crisis game?


Maybe soon. Snooping around the European Union trademark database I discovered Time Crisis Strike which sure sounds like a new Time Crisis game. Since it’s just a trademark we don’t know what system Time Crisis Strike is in development for, but it looks like it’s going to be for arcades, at least first.  This the trademark was registered for use with video game programs and amusement machines on December 26, 2008.

    Time Crisis 4 was such a disappointment. I didn’t like the set up, the game, the visuals, the characters… anything! I’m rarely that upset with a game, but TC4 just made me sad.

    time crisis wii please.

    that said, I think they already lost the momentum to do it, they’re kinda late to the party.

    Why not contact Namco and tell them to bring it on Wii, man!

    Considering that Namco is starting to use the System 357 for more than just Tekken 6 now, I would expect to see the game run on that. If that is the case, expect it for the PS3 since the System 357 basically is a PS3 in an arcade cabinet. Personally, as somebody who owns Time Crisis 4, I welcome the chance to be able to use my Guncon 3 for more than just one game.
