Wonder Momo Returning To Video Games?

By Spencer . January 15, 2014 . 10:12pm


Namco Bandai has a Wonder Momo teaser site up proclaiming that "Momo is back." Wonder Momo had a high kicking arcade game back in the ’80s, but she’s probably more well known now for her webcomic series. Since Wonder Momo already made a return does this mean she’s getting a new game?


Speaking of webcomic, the logo in the top right is just like the Shiftylook comic series logo. Shiftylook released a Bravoman game last year, so our guess is they’re behind this project too.

    The Wonderful 102 confirmed?

  • Warboss Aohd

    ………….of all of the franchises they could revive, of all of the fallen, THIS is the one they go with?

    • DaiRaiOh

      Wonder Momo is awesome though. Plus it’s had a good amount of exposure on account of Namco X Capcom and Queens Gate


      momo is a cool character and this can pretty much be just a smartphone game.

      Now go revive Valkyrie Densetsu in a awesome way namco!!

        “Nope! It’ll be a smartphone game.”

          *evil grin is not effective*
          i’m already expecting that, bro

            Sad truth is sad :/

  • I’d be excited if there wasn’t a 90% chance this is gonna be some social/browser/mobile piece of crap. For one, these new announcements are usually for games on those platforms. I’ve also given games on those platforms a fair shot and they’re almost always garbage. It’s not just blind hate. I’ll gladly eat my words if this turns out to be a true revival or a good game though.

      That new Bravoman game wasn’t what I expected. Serves me right for falling to mobile “revivals”.

  • Audie Bakerson

    Allow me to be the obligatory cellphone/mobile pessimist.

    • brostar

      We have to get that pessimism out from the get go to lessen the blow if is just a mobile game.

  • The web comic is pretty funny =)

  • Shippoyasha

    Just imagine an idol allstars game pitting idol characters of today with legendary idol characters of 10, 20, 30 years ago.

  • No. Do not bring this bullshit back. I’ve played your smart phone games Shiftylook. Stop. Just really. STOP.

  • Brimfyre

    I’ve always liked Wonder Momo. Her Arcade game is a lot of fun. It has a clever concept in that you are playing her in a stage play.

  • Spirit Macardi

    While this COULD still be a cell phone game, the one last year for Bravoman never got its own teaser site, much less on Namco’s Japanese domain. This seems to suggest something a little more substantive.

    If it is a full-on console game, then congratulations Namco, you’ve finally figured out how to take care of a franchise! If not, I’ll just go back to calling you guys idiots like I always do x3

    • KnifeAndFork

      I once did a tally of all of Namco’s original IP characters and it far surpasses that of Nintendo to the point that Namco could have easily made their own console at one time if they didn’t so frequently abandon their mascots…

      • GameTaco

        I’m sure someone out there is dreaming, fittingly enough, of an alternate reality where Klonoa became a full-on console mascot.

        • Spirit Macardi

          I just want an alternate reality where Klonoa 3 at least EXISTS.

  • Slayven19

    She’s back huh? I’d love to play the game but it seems not compatible with my gaming device.

  • Yan Zhao

    Awww yeah! As long as this aint some mobile/social game nonsense.
