Who Will Publish Armored Core 5 Overseas? Answer: Namco Bandai


image Looks like Namco Bandai and From Software are best buds. On top of grabbing the Western rights to Dark Souls, Namco Bandai picked Armored Core 5 too. Dengeki broke the news in this week’s issue.


The Armored Core series has an interesting overseas publisher history. Sony Computer Entertainment America introduce the West to the series by releasing the very first Armored Core game for PsOne. Niche publisher Agetec handled the PlayStation 2 iterations in North America. Sega stepped in for Armored Core 4 about a year after the two companies worked on Chromehounds. Ubisoft snapped up Armored Core for Answer while both parties were working on Tenchu: Shadow Assassins. Namco Bandai is the latest company to pick up From Software’s titles.


Armored Core 5 is slated for release this year on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
