TIME CRISIS 5
Bandai Namco Games confirmed on their site in an announcement for "autumn new product business meetings NAMCO BANDAI Games 2014" that the next in line in the TC series - Time Crisis 5 - is, in fact, a reality. This is amazing news for fans of the series, as the last Time Crisis arcade release was back in 2006 with TC4. You can check out the webpage (however, be warned it is mostrly graphic and can't really be translated online, but if you can read Japanese you're fine) for more information
STAR WARS AT NEW YORK COMIC CON
This week New York Comic-Con will open it's doors to fans of popular series and cult fandoms in the Big Apple, and one thing that is really exciting for all the potential arcade goers present is Bandai Namco's unveiling of heir newly licensed Star Wars game!
At this stage, the company will be limiting the unveiling to press only, so whether or not fans will actually be able to take a sneak peek at the machine or not is in doubt right now. Also, not much is known about the game at this stage, however after the unveiling at NYCC, more details will begin to emerge. Speculation has already begun as to the design and kind of machine the new Star Wars title will be and if it will have any connection with previous Star Wars games, however, as I said, nothing much is known right now - BUT watch this space for more information as it becomes available!
