Namco Bandai Will Act As An External Developer And Make More Social Games


talesofcard_1Before Namco and Bandai merged, Bandai always outsourced video game development. Now, Bandai Namco Games is accepting development contracts.


Their latest financial briefing states Bandai Namco Games will develop another company’s strong titles. Nintendo and Namco Bandai already announced they are working on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. Since this is a general statement it sounds like going forward Namco Bandai will accept other contracts too. Perhaps, we’ll see Final Fantasy by the Tales team someday?


They also plan to spinoff their own titles into social games. Namco Bandai has a number of social games in the works like Sword Art Online: End World, Super Robot Taisen Card Chronicle, Tales of Kizna, and Tales of Card Evolve.
