Forums - Gaming Discussion - Bandai Namco is such a very under rated publisher. Not a micro transaction in sight.

I don't know if they deserve to be called underrated from a audience point. They have tons of big franchises with tons of fans and usually they sells pretty well.

They always seem to hit us with some good releases

They only published The Witcher 3 in western Europe, that's all. They didn't develop it, fund it, or even publish it in the majority of the world.

As for the rest... you're saying they're underrated "as a AAA publisher" by mentioning their AA games? They're a good AA publisher, I see no reason to say they're a good AAA publisher though.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

The Witcher III isn't by Namco. I guess I will get Namco games if they're good, but I'm not going to get games because they're by Namco.



Aren't they the publisher for Arc System Works games ? If so, the next Blaze Blue is filled with some of the worst DLC pratices we've got in recent fighthing games too.

Glad, they're ain't into much else though

Well, they're developing Metroid Prime 4, so hopefully they're amazing!



From what I've seen they've been good with Nintendo:

-Putting Link in Soul Calibur II
-Assisting in Donkey Konga
-Assisting in Star Fox Assault
-Assisting in Smash Bros. 4
-Pokken Tournament/Pokken Tournament DX
-Mario Kart Arcade GP 1 and 2
-Hopefully the same goes for Metroid Prime 4

Hmm, is this news comfirmed? That's very odd on Nintendo's part but yeah, I'm sure they will do a fantastic job. One more Pro on the pro/con list of buying a switch.

Yep, and most fans seem to be happy (cautiously optimistic) with the decision.  Makes us all wonder what Retro is working on, though.

There's a con list for buying a Switch?  Weird. 



The tales of series has microtransactions. You can buy all sorts of gold and level boosts or xp boosts.

Unless you mean lootboxes. Then that it doesn't have, no.

The Witcher 3 was published by Namco in Europe. WB Games published it in North America
