Namco Bandai’s PSP Heavy TGS Lineup Has God Eater 2 And Lots Of Summon Night

By Spencer . September 3, 2012 . 12:51am


Namco Bandai has a long line up, but so far most of their games aren’t playable. Attendees can try out Tales of Xillia 2, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3, and Project X Zone at their booth.


What’s interesting about Namco Bandai’s lineup is it’s dominated by PSP games like God Eater 2 and Sword Art Online: Infinity Memory. We haven’t seen much about either of these games, so I’m looking forward to seeing news about those at Tokyo Game Show. The only Vita game Namco Bandai has on their list is AKB 1/153: Love Edition, a dating sim with the popular idol and sister groups.

  • Wow.

    That sure is a lot of Summon Night we’ll probably never get. :( 

    Also Digimon Adventure. noooooo.

  • All the PSP and animes game tht will never be in english TT__TT

    SAO and AW noooooo….
    Digimon nooooooo….
    RailDex nooooooo….
    KoroCon noo- Wait WHAT!?

  • shuratan

    Greatly looking forward to God eater 2. And I guess what’s good with the Vita is that it’s backwards compatible with PSP games, so those that have already have a Vita and want to play the new PSP games can get it on their Vita. That’s what I plan to do when God Eater 2 gets released~

    • neogeno

      Yeah, even if they make physical copies having a PSN release I think would be the most profitable because it gives the opportunity to PSP owners AND Vita owners. They wont be alienating anyone that way. The only thing that could cause a problem is if online communication is hindered in some way between the two handhelds.

  • Muffum

    Namco has all these games to show off, but I’m honestly just looking forward to Project X Zone. I’ve been looking forward to it since its initial announcement and am still holding onto the ever fading hope of a localization.

  • d19xx

    I guess Bamco plan is to corner the PSP market now that many of its competitors are moving away from it. The install base is huge and many people still buy it.

    I think it’s a smart move on their part. By the time they focus more on the 3DS, the userbase will be much larger…

  • Shiki

    Looking at all these PSP games brings tears into my eyes ( and drools in my mouth? )

    Knowing there’s no way in hell or heaven that we will see a localization for any of them is too much PAIN! ( With drools in my mouth! )

    Digimon , HxH , T&B , SAO , GE2!! … god T ^ T

    Thanks namco for the painful teasing!!!

  • s07195

    Shouldn’t it be G Generation Overworld?

    Also, hoping you guys do a playtest for Project X Zone. :)

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Project X Zone, Lost Heroes, Toki Towa, Summon Night series, Sword Art Online, Tiger and Bunny and especially Accel World lol.(COnsidering that Tekken arcade game shows up in the latest episode as free advertisement there lol.^_^)

    Bamco is surely going to screw my wallet hard this year.T_T

  • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

    God Eater 2, give me a localized version~. 

  • A strong line up from NB, I’m glad they’re using TGS to push their games.

  • Anime10121

    WOW, now thats an impressive list!  I can count 8 titles on that list that I want, however, unfortunately, only half of them have a slight chance of releasing in the west, with one of them (NUNS3) being already announced for localization.

  • PersonaSpace

    There’s 1 Vita game in that whole list, and it’s a crappy AKB game. The worst part is, not counting the anime games, we probably won’t even see a quarter of those PSP games in the west. Being a fan of Japanese games in the US is a really crappy thing right now.

    • Ryos

      Quarter?  We’ll be lucky if we see one of those.  It’s a shame God Eater sold so poorly here because it was an awesome game and everything we’ve seen thus far indicates the sequel is just as good or better.

      It’s a great lineup nonetheless…just a shame we won’t be seeing any here. :(

    • Domii

      I feel you. And what’s sad is that most of us don’t know a single word in Japanese. So that makes importing a bad option.

    • PersonaSpace

      the reply I’m responding to was deleted, but I’d like to just say this:
      We’re in an age where information is freely flying all around the world. Sure Tokyo Game Show may be in Tokyo, but it doesn’t stop the rest of the world from checking out and wanting a lot of the games in it.

      Yeah, we /could/ try to import, but a lot of us would also like to be able to actually play the games without having to learn a second language. (Not that I haven’t tried)

  • Domii

    “What’s interesting about Namco Bandai’s lineup is it’s dominated by PSP games like God Eater 2 and Sword Art Online: Infinity Memory.”

    Very bad business move by Namco. I would expect they would move on to it’s successor or at least diversify more. Oh well, I still like their line up.

  • Sweet PxZ is playable there!  Looking forward to it.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    God Eater 2, Tales of Xillia 2,Project X Zone and Digimon !! localize!!!! plz

    • I’m sure Xillia 2 will come out after the 1st one….. But then again this is BAMCO we r talking abt.

  • OatMatadoQuatro

    Is cyberconnect planning to release an expanded version of hack//versus?

  • Spirit Macardi

    I hope with all my heart that one of those “coming soon” titles has something to do with a series of theirs that turns 15 this December…

  • XYZ_JolteonZ980

    I didnt know there was a Kokoro Connect psp game, how would that work, we play as Taichi or Aoki? Hopefully a different take on the anime.
    Otherwise excited for Naruto Shippuden Ultimate NInja Storm 3!!! Game of the gen.

    Oh also if there is some footage of the ova with E7AO and Accel World!

    • SolidusSnake

      Hi Tuna. Btw, game of this gen is gonna be SMT IV.

      • Domii

        I guess you haven’t watched the MGS: Ground Zeroes video lol. 

        • SolidusSnake

          I saw it & it’s gonna rule, but if the new megaten is a fourth as good as Nocturne then there’s no beating it. :X

          edit: Metal Gear Rising will also be awesome.

          • Domii

            Yeah, I gotta get back on my SMT train. The last one I played was P3FES, and I didn’t finish it. 

      • XYZ_JolteonZ980

        I need to get back into Overclocked…but I do wanna get SMT IV, hope it is as good as you say!

      • LynxAmali

        Infinite Space says hi.

        And there is really no “game of this gen.”

        It really comes down to opinions.

    • KoroCon game would prob be VN and we either control Taichi or we get to play as each character….. I wonder wht can we change lol.
      *Inaban or Iori…. Tht hard,,,*

      AW OVA seems to be Hot Spring Episode IIRC.

      • XYZ_JolteonZ980

        Taku in the hot spring please! would be awesome, oh and Crikin too.

        For the girls, er, maybe they get Sky Laker there…

        • >Sky Raker

          Oh yes. We need Aqua Current and Yuniko too lol. 

          • XYZ_JolteonZ980

            Ah cant forget Aqua Current, if she gets more screen time

  • darkfox1

    Ah whoah they have awesome playable games though :(

  • Palmer Nyako

    Nice! Hopefully we get lots of localizations.

  • Reiko_Chan

    Looking forward to Storm 3 and God Eater 2. I’m hoping for a Digimon Adventure localization.  Im strangely looking forward to the Tamagotchi game.

  • *silently sobs in the corner because so many good PSP games in Japan and the poor system is neglected in the west*

  • Renaldi Saputra

    I hope Digimon Crusaders will be compatible for android
