SEGA teaming up with Capcom and Namco Bandai to develop 3DS game

As promised, Nintendo held their Nintendo Direct conference this morning, and undoubtedly the biggest piece of news to come from the event was the information that SEGA, Namco Bandai, and Capcom are teaming up to develop a 3DS game.

So far the details of the project are being kept under wraps, though a teaser site has been created, one featuring the intriguing image of a vault door being opened. (A retro franchise revival, maybe? Or a crossover?)

We’ll keep you posted on any new info that comes from this pretty epic-sounding collaboration.

On another note, Game Gear titles will be heading to the 3DS Shop Channel this March in Europe and Japan, while no North American date was given. Game Gear installments in the Sonic the Hedgehog and Shinobi franchises, as well as the dungeon crawler Dragon Crystal, are said to be among the first titles that will be available for download.

    It’s worth mentioning that Banpresto is also developing on this project meaning it’s more than likely a SRPG.

    I bet it is going to be a VS fighter. Quite obvious, isn’t it?

    I hope Klonoa’s in it.

    So Sonic vs Megaman vs Pac-Man game? I kid I kid! No way is Capcom going to put Megaman in a major game, better luck next time blue bomber fans!

    The funny part is though, I bet that if Mega Man Legends for the 3DS hadn’t been canned, he might have been in the next Smash game.

    Oh btw, the source link, links to a brain age article @ IGN.

    It’s gonna be some kind of RPG I bet, and the chances of a western release will be slim just like Namco X Capcom. A crossover with more fan service than substance. Would love to be proven wrong though.

  13. -nSega54- says:

    An RPG would be awesome.
