Bandai Namco Games has another Kamen Rider game slated for release this year, but Kamen Rider: Summonride isn’t another Battride War sequel. The upcoming game is pretty much Kamen Rider meets Skylanders. A new set of Kamen Rider toys that connect with Kamen Rider: Summonride will be distributed by Bandai in packs of Rider figures and chip sets. Just like Skylanders or Disney Infinity, players will be able to bring these characters into the game by placing figures on a pod.

 

Kamen Rider: Summonride will be the first local Japanese game with the Skylanders concept. Bandai Namco has experience selling figure/game combos since they brought Disney Infinity to Japan. Square Enix handled the Skylanders series for the region.

 

Kamen RIder: Summonrider is slated for release this December for Wii U and PlayStation 3.

    I’m actually pretty surprised that this hasn’t caught on in Japan yet. It just seems like it would push a lot of their buttons.

    • HarakiriKami

      They dont like it apparently.

      It ends up in the Western Shit Boxes. As did Gyrozetter

    First console game, and first with the NFC method. We’ve already got Gaist Crusher and Youkai Watch doing similar ones.

    Anyway I’d be interested if the game itself looked good but considering we’ve seen nothing of that…

    • HarakiriKami

      Youkai watch doesnt have any nfc stuff

  • HarakiriKami

  • wahyudil

    if … if … if Wii U isn’t region locked … I’ve just realized that battride War II also made for Wii U …

    there will be no US version of this … ever … sigh
