    Is it weird that I kind of missed WW2 shooters after everything being taken to the modern day this generation?

    • Ping92

      nope, i will take WW2 shooters over modern shooters anyday

    • Warboss Aohd

      no, it’s refreshing at this point.

    • Nate

      I miss them too, I’d also like to see a Korean and Viettnam game.

      I miss when WWII shooters were made by Dreamworks.

    Bandai bring more games from Level-5, like you did with Ni No Kuni!!

      Isn’t there a U.S. branch of Level-5 now?

      • landlock

        I think they only publish digital games themselves though from what I can tell.

      • Renaldi Saputra

        there’s Level5 USA, so yes

  • Callonia

    Another shooter?
    Our shelves is overpopulated with shooters in shops.

  • DesmaX

    Been a while since I last saw a WW2 shooter. I don’t really like how weapons from that time handle, so I’ll probably going to skip it then

    Namco Bandai is one of my favorite publishers with the Gundam games. I also really like World War II games. This has my attention. I look forward to the release.

    Lords of the Fallen looks interesting. I liked how the hero wasn’t some pretty boy and was wielding a giant hammer. I also liked how the big monsters decided to back off after seeing the meteor storm. He was like, “The hell is that?!”

    Interesting that Namco-Bandai picked up Lords of the Fallen, which is looking like the closest thing that Dark Souls has to direct competition. Between it, The Witcher 3, and Dark Souls II, I guess they really want to own the hardcore RPG market.

      Well City Interactive are a European publisher. I guess they went around trying to find a US publisher and NB are known to publish other peoples games quite a lot.

    why don’t just localize Digimon World Re:Digitize Decode, Namdai?

  • Kornelious

    Yay Bamco! Instead of getting some good games (Like the Vita Tales of, and SAO Hollow Fragment) we get MORE FREAKING FPS’s! >:(

  • Monterossa

    Damn Namco…. you just said you don’t have money to localize Tales games.

    • https://twitter.com/mikedo2007 mikedo2007

      I think they’re localizing those 2 western games to gain some money to fund to localize Tales game. Localizing Tales game aren’t easy to do and they aren’t cheap, given some restriction when Japanese game get exported overseas (ie: music, Japanese voices, etc…). I remember JAST USA said licensing one BL dating sim game maybe impossible due to ridiculous fees over the JPN VAs:
