imageCyberConnect2 tried to pitch Tail Concerto 2 to Namco Bandai, more than once actually. That didn’t go so well in 2000. During a CEDEC presentation, the Solartorobo development team said the proposal was thrown in the trash right in front of the CyberConnect2 staff.


Hiroshi Matsuyama, CEO of CyberConnect2, and his team went back to the drawing board with a new proposal in 2003. And again in 2004. Bandai rejected Tail Concerto 2 twice because they wouldn’t believe it would sell. Concept art for the two ideas are all that’s left of Tail Concerto 2.

    What if they named it Naruto Tail Concerto 2: Raging Blast? Maybe then Namco would have accepted the idea.

        Even so, I’m sure you understand what I meant by that comment!

    I wonder if CyberConnect2 will ever have a chance to make its own high end games outside of the Naruto franchise?

    Namco blows.

  • epy

    Sounds like Namco Bandai alright.

  • Ugh, why am I not surprised? Bandai especially wouldn’t know a good game if it bit them on the tuchus.
