Bandai Namco to Reveal New IP at Gamescom

Bandai Namco are the latest name — and arguably one of the biggest of the third party developers/publishers — to confirm their presence at this year’s Gamescom. And while the European wing have announced that both Dragonball Xenoverse 2 & Tekken 7 will be making an appearance for the public to try out, Bandai Namco will also be debuting a brand new IP that they will be publishing.

The studio haven’t specified who is making it but has carefully stated the game is targeted “for a Western audience”. “We are bringing 3 very interesting projects this year.” Hervé Hoerdt, Vice President of IP Strategy, Marketing & PR explained. “We are particularly pleased to be able to fulfill the desires of fighting game fans as they get the chance to experience the most impressive Tekken game to date through near photo-realistic graphics with Tekken 7. We’re also showing off Dragonball Xenoverse 2 which with all its new features is anticipated to be one of our biggest games to date!”
