Namco Bandai Investing In Stereoscopic 3D Gaming

imageNamco Bandai was just testing the waters with Invincible Tiger: The Legend of Han Tao. The publisher has bigger plans for stereoscopic 3D gaming since they licensed a stereoscopic gaming API from RealD. The kit includes tools for head tracking, automatic camera adjustments, and a system to create depth perception across the entire line of site.


“RealD has the world’s best 3D technology, as evident by their leading the current 3D movie revolution. We look forward to our developers leveraging RealD’s decades of 3D expertise and this breakthrough technology to deliver an unsurpassed and true-to-life 3D gaming experience,” said Shin Unozawa, President & Chief Executive Officer, at Namco Bandai Games.


Films like The Nightmare Before Christmas and the 3D re-release of Toy Story use RealD’s technology. Now, Namco Bandai has it. Dragon Ball Z: 3D anyone?

      Yes! Yes! Yes!

      This is literally how .hack is meant to be played. I mean just watch the anime and look at the hardware the people are using.

      (Still holding out for my M2D Face-mounted display though)

  • Can you use RealD glasses with Invincible Tiger? =P I keep seeing old school 3-D glasses in my magazine for use with that game but I have about 3 or 4 RealD glasses lying around that need some use.

    Y’know, I think that’d be enough of a push for me to pick up another Dragon Ball Z game post-Budokai Tenkaichi Anything.

    Read D is the best? No…the best isnt even available yet. 3D flat screen TV’s where you wont need glasses

  • If I’m not completely stereoblind, I’m very close. So I can’t see the big deal about 3D TVs/gaming. *rimshot!*

    I think realistic VR games like “The World” would take up a lot of resources and might require a hi-tech equipment to run smoothly. I’m sure augmented reality games would become widespread before we get games like “The World”.
