Namco Bandai Are Counting Down To Something

By Ishaan . April 26, 2011 . 11:00pm

Namco Bandai are counting down to something. They’ve put up a new teaser website, titled “Beginning of the New Chapter,” that has a countdown running on it, set to end in two weeks.



What’s in two weeks? The middle of May, which is when Soulcalibur director, Daishi Odashima, recently said he hopes to reveal “something”. We can’t be sure, but perhaps Namco’s site is a teaser of swords and souls.

Read more stories about on Siliconera.

  • Based on the image, it is safe to say that it will be a futuristic adventure, involving pirates, and space whales.

    • Zero_Destiny

      Ah! Tales of Space Whalen Calibur. XD Can’t wait to play that game.

    • Yui

      If this isn’t true, I will be devastated. No lie. ;_;

    • I love Siliconera just because of people like you guys.

    • Pesmerga00

      But, will there be whaling, and possibly moons?

    • New Baten Kaitos??

      • Ren

        Don’t tease me like that.

        • Zero_Destiny

          Well I’d doubt it anyways since if anyone would be publishing Baten Kaitos it would be Nintendo. Seeing as Monolith Soft is now a first party developer for Nintendo and after Nintendo bought up their stock in 2007 every game they made since then has been for Nintendo. So Namco Bandai have nothing to do with Baten Kaitos anymore.

          • Dont destroy the dreams of my tsundere, but well, it’s ok since you are doing your yandere’s job perfectly.

      • Exkaiser

        That’s what I thought when I saw the countdown image.

    • I can see your line of reasoning very clearly

    • LynxAmali

      Turn A Gundam x Macross 7: The RPG?
      Sorta want….

      Probably Japan-only SC title though….

  • Ryuhawkin

    I just want Tales of Graces!
    Whatever it may be, it’s still interesting, but what’s with all these teases lately?

  • Sekundes

    Tales of Chrono Crossia.

    • So I’m not the only one who’s thoughts went straight there.

      • Nope you’re not the only one. :)

  • Wiccan1109

    Hm. Bankruptcy?

    • Considering how much they’re raking in with their DLC costumes, I somehow doubt it. :p

  • AdamBoy64

    I think they’re counting down to when PSN comes back online.

  • Seems odd to countdown to something in the middle of May, countdown to an announcement of an announcement that they will talk more about it at E3?

  • Megurine

    Soulcalibur Director Hopes To Announce “Something” In May, So…

  • z_merquise

    It looked like Soulcalibur to me.

    And then when the timer went zero . . . BAM! It’s a Digimon RPG set in the 14th century and it’s exclusive on IPhones. Yeah!!!

    I just don’t want to expect too much so that I won’t be heavily disappointed.

  • [The Hunter] Doomrider

    A tale of souls and swords, eternally retold…

    Probably their new boob physics simulator.

  • soulcalibur? but you didn’t noticed the simbol of the page that it’s the same in the japan tales of portal page? The S with the yellow flag? maybe an announcement for Graces?

    • S flag is a symbol for all Namco games. It comes from an arcade game called Rally-X.

  • SlashZaku

    Gonna go with a new Soul Calibur.

  • Megurine

    Soul Calibur, no doubt, get real guys…

  • PrinceHeir

    im just gonna guess it’s either Vesperia or a Soul Calibur game :P

  • KyoyaHibari

    New Tales or Soul Calibur?

  • I’m also going with a new Soul Calibur.
