More Details On Namco Bandai’s New 3DS Title

3DS_namcoNamco Bandai’s new teaser site just opened up some extra information for us to speculate over. The teaser website – which you can see here – had previously told us that the new title would be a game for the Nintendo 3DS, and gave us the letter ‘V’ and ‘F’ followed by the numbers ‘20’ and ‘30’. Now, Namco Bandai has dropped further clues as to what the game could be – ‘V’ is followed by 20th Anniversary and ‘F’ by 30th Anniversary. It’s quite clear at this point that the 30th Anniversary the company is referring to is the Famicom, which is currently celebrating 30 years. However, the ‘V’ takes a little more digging, Siliconera reports that it could be to do with Japanese Publication V Jump, which is celebrating its 20th year after it began publishing in 1993.

Further reports suggest that this new title could be an homage to a manga crossover game Bandai published back in the Famicom era – Famicom Jump: Hero Retsuden. With just under 3 days to go until the big reveal, it won’t be long until we discover what Namco Bandai are teasing – let us know what you think in the comments below.

        1. Look at it objectively; the Xbox One could well outsell both the Wii U and PS4, or it could flop. Microsoft isn’t marketing it as a gaming console, as opposed to a living-room hub. Should hype build about this idea, the effect could be even larger than that from the Wii; and it’ll seem like less of an investment for a console if it also offers TV services and such.

  1. Wouldn’t the 20th anniversary one be related to something starting with the letter “V” ?

  2. OH YOU SON OF A BITCH!!!!! FUCK YOU!!!!!!!!! I WAS SUPPOSED TO BE FIRST YOU ASHOLE AAAAAGH!!!! DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW LONG I SPEND ROAMING THIS SITE ALL DAY LONG TO BE FIRST BECAUSE I HAVE NO OTHER PURPOSE IN LIFE! YOU FILTHY ANIMAL YOU!

  3. Do you know what other famous Namco Bandai game was made in 1993? RIIIIIIIIDGE RACEEEER!!!

    1. Or they could be publishing a Virtua Fighter game, which also is having its 20th anniversary this year. Plus, it actually starts with “V”.

  4. Wasn’t Virtua Fighter released in1993? I know it’s a Sega title, but given all the 3DS/Projet X-Zone elements… Who knows?

    1. Wow, you beat me to that comment by 1 minute!!! Virtua Fighter does seem like it could be the series, though!

      1. Well then I won’t be alone in my pride if it actually is the franchise that’s at stake :) Cheers bro.

  5. Soul calibur x battle arena toshiden? That would make so many haters rage so much that it could be the next bayonetta effect.

  6. I’m really looking forward to it :)

    Please “Yeah” my Wario picture in Miiverse :3 … (ID: reem86, or just click at my homepage)

  7. Hmmm, it’s already known since a few hours ago that this game is Jump Legend Biography a compilation of retro anime games…

  8. Soul Calibur IV and V and the original Pac-Man are the only Namco-Bandai games I’ve ever played and liked. Not exactly a “fan” or the company. Actually I bought Tekken Tag 2 for Wii U, but I hated it. Only played it for a couple hours :/ 💋
