A New Namco Bandai Teaser Site Shows A Moon And Lake

By Ishaan . August 5, 2011 . 8:27am

Here we go again. Namco Bandai have put up a teaser website for a new game, and we get to make all sorts of guesses as to just what it is. Below is a screenshot of the site:


The message on the website is one of those typical odd Japanese quotes. It reads something to the effect of: “I, who began to run, still wasn’t aware.”

Read more stories about on Siliconera.

  • a new tales of games maybe? in any case, i think we all know that whatever it is this wont be coming to western shores 

    • My immediate thought was some kind of successor to Fragile.

    • No way for it to be a new Tales when Xillia is on it’s way to be released~

  • RagnaXBL

    [mod: please don’t start that in a thread that has nothing to do with the game.]

    • for the looks of it, this sounds more like an rpg or adventure type of game. of course i could be dead wrong here 

      • Anime10121

        MML 3 was both of those;)

        Though seriously, hope its something substantial and not some small game for PSP which will NEVER get released here:( (Not to say I hate the system as I think it’s awesome, yet with over 70 mil consoles sold, nothing sales for the thing because of piracy)

  • Guest

    Clearly it’s a Gamera game. You know….giant spinning flying turtle by the moonlight destroying evil giant monsters with fireball attacks

  • I seriously get confused here Namco Bandai, at least tease with something useful so I may get the fun…I hope it’s some cool supernatural themed RPG~

  • …… Fragile Dreams 2?
    EDIT: Beaten by Ishaan.

  • I love the peaceful music, image, and quote, but the whole time I couldn’t enjoy it thoroughly because I was expecting something to destroy the scene and it to explode into a raucous action trailer.

  • malek86

    Maybe something by tri-Crescendo?

    I don’t think it will be related to Fragile, but it does feel like tri-Crescendo to me.

  • Souji Tendou

    Why do I have the feeling that they’ll reveal a new Tales. God, I hope my feeling is wrong. :/

  • I so want this to be another Fragile game. It’s a bit far fetched, but Seto always used “boku” as “I”, and on this image I see the kanji for “boku”.

    While many male characters do that, it fits so well with the moon, the mood and the message. Fragile had many scenese where Seto was basically retelling his life.

    Seto-kun… <3

  • raikage

    I did not know Fragile was a Namdai game, but a new Fragile would be nice.

    However, this could be such a good screensaver. ~.~

  • It looks Xillia related to be honest.

  • This is a hard one. Its looks like some kind of rpg or adventure game. Maybe a new tales game, but what platform. or a game from tri-crescendo but the last game fragile was localized by xseed i believe.

  • Mister_Nep

    It’s using the same font as Fragile did. That seems the most likely thing. It’ll either be a direct or spiritual successor.

  • That sky SCREAMS Xillia.

  • It really does give a Fragile vibe, doesn’t it?

  • origami_samurai

    Seriously people it says it is a teaser for a ‘New game’ how could it be Xillia related…….. What ever it is, it looks amazing ^_^ (JRPG please)

  • SolNeko


  • fisico

    Tri-Crescendo is supposed to work on the next Digimon’s game (on PSP), besides the url says it’s Bandai, not Namco.

    With that i don’t have a single clue about what this game might be…

    • This is a good point. The URL is indeed for Bandai.

  • Tales of Xillia Director’s cut?

    • Exkaiser

      Super Tales of Xillia Director’s Cut Hyper Fighting Champion Edition.

  • Exkaiser

    If we’re just going to say random, unrelated things and call them guesses, then… It’s Gundam X, obviously.


    • fisico

       Yup since it’s Bandai it’s likely related to CC2, but they only finished Solatorobo a year ago, that’s a little too soon fort their new project i think (and they’re still working on the naruto franchise and Asura’s Wrath).

  • Don’t know how likely it is, but I’m getting serious Baten Kaitos vibes from this.

  • Suicunesol

    “Farewell Ruins of The Moon”
    Well, you got a giant, yellow moon on the website. Same font as the game. And a “boku” in the text.

    The only question I’ve got is what platform is it for?

  • DanteJones

    I’m gonna guess something Xillia related or maybe a new Fragile game. Though it could be something completely new too.

  • Guest

    Damn. With all the speculation below I’m gonna be disappointed if it isn’t Fragile 2 or Eternal Sonata 2….
    Everything screams Fragile but the music. It doesn’t sound like anything from the game and it also doesn’t sound like Sakurabas usual work.

  • Strelka Stories from CC2… Maybe ?

  • PrinceHeir

    probably Eternal Sonata 2 :P

    • You don’t know how much I hope you’re right. :D

  • Well…if this is the teaser from Cyber Connect Corp 2, it could be Tail Concerto 2. If it is, I guess they’re finally able to go with the making of it. For Solarobo, they released a promotional artwork and also a teaser site, before releasing a countdown 3 years later. They could be doing the same thing with this except without the coming soon.

  • please be a tales game in english ! that i can play in the uk or on a usa console !

  • Jirin

    It would be awesome if this were Xillia, but I’m not going to get my hopes up.  Would they really announce Xillia here before Graces even came out?  If it is Xillia, it means they really meant their statement about becoming more fan-oriented.

    My hopes for that, however, are not very far up.

    • It’s a Japanese teaser, makes not much sense to tease Xillia localization in Japanese~

      • Jirin

        The story itself made it look like a Japanese thing, but some of the other comments make it sound like this was supposed to be for a US announcement.

  • Elemiel

    Prequel to Fragile?

  • Dokurochan

    New Summon Night?
    Wishful thinking I know considering Flight-Plan is no more but I can still hope.

  • I just hope its a PS360 rpg that has plans of localisation. Yeah, hoping too much. I know.

  • Darkrise

    A brand new Tales game? Sequel to Fragile? Looks a bit of both though to be honest.

  • MizuMikomi

    The music on the site reminds me of Mac Anu from .Hack, and since it’s CC2 developing it… that’s exactly what i think this is. .Hack PS3? Do want.

  • XypherCode

    Fragile? .hack? Tales?
    c’mon give me something here :D

  • theworldofnoboundries

    The truth is anything that Bandai produce is always a good thing for me but…… the problem is they are too ASS to release any of the game here. Fragile 2?, Tales?, .Hack? Anything is okay as long as they don’t force me to import the game here anymore.

  • Nei_chan

    Whatever, just let it be an rpg for PS360, please. Aside of FFXIII-2 and FFVXIII there are no jrpg’s coming out anymore. It’s sad.
    Ah, who am i kidding, it’s probably another rpg for psp/3ds..

  • Oh man. Checked the site today, and the moon is starting to get eclipsed. That being said, I can’t think of anything off the top of my head that has to do with a lunar eclipse. Also, birds.

    EDIT: Also, the sentence changed. I can’t read it though.

    • the text says something like “the reason or meaning that you are by my side”

  • Blackhowling

    I think it looks like Tales of Xillia, and I really hope it comes to America. Characters all look really cool.

  • Sorry to bring everyone’s hopes down but this is a Bandai URL; that means this can’t be any Tales, Eternal Sonata or Fragile games; as all of those games were released by Namco. My guess is a completely new game with no predecessors.

  • 4shiki

    It can’t be that Puella Magi Madoka Magica game recently announced (which, by the way, Siliconera needs to have an article on it), can it?

  • 4shiki

    Countdown has finished, and it’s…Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai Portable! Based on a light novel, manga, drama CD and upcoming anime.

    Disappointing since I was expecting a RPG but at the same time I’m not too much because I’m interested in Bokutomo and will be following the anime this fall (besides, how can you say no to more delicious Buriki art?).

    • fisico

      Dat troll, gg Bandai.

    • malek86

      In other news, pretty much nobody here got it right :P
