I hope not. I'm not a Namco fan, even though they are good at the technical level.
I wonder what people will think once they know Metroid Prime 4 is being developed by FROM.
Also, Namco working on Prime 4 was part of that huge leak on Reddit way back late last year.
If you guys remember that leak has got a lot of things right. They got the SFV season 3 characters dead on, even including Cody and a brand new character in G "The President".
They got Soul Calibur VI before the reveal although they got the platforms wrong but said they were unsure on that
They leaked DMC V, which has pretty much been confirmed at thus point
They also leaked that the Switch was getting The World Ends With You 2 (ended up being an expanded HD port, but 2 might still be coming)
They also got several DBFZ characters right in Hit, Beerus and Goku Black (Rose) being launch characters.
What a crazy leak. So much is coming true
Finally its Geist 2 time to shine
I kid I kid
Still, untill proven I remain sceptical.
What's the big deal about Ridge Racer being a Switch exclusive? Hasn't the franchise been dormant/dead for a while now? I've never seen anyone asking for one.
Ouch on Sony losing Ridge Racer exclusivility if true. Especially with the sparse amount of Arcade Racers right now on the market since EA NFS Payback killed it.
And while Microsoft have Forza Horizon, Sony wouldnt have any arcade racers on the market since Evolution is dead.
They just gathered up rumors and spit them back.
Bamco making Prime 4 was a rumor that started on this forum!
Oh yeah there's that 3DS one too.
I doubt they'd care at this point
Screw metroid, I need my Ridge Racer! Daaamn gonna have to get a switch. There's absolutely nothing else I want on it. This has turned into a sunset overdrive xb1 situation for me. Fuuuuuuk…
I guess it makes sense since the Vita one sold like shit and the 3DS one probably fared better. Also to be fair Nintendo probably bank rolled it cheap, wouldn't have been made otherwise. Hardly anyone gives a shit about RR these days.
Maybe Ridge Racer X will be a 4k 60fps semi port on the UHD twins, like 6/7...
Ridge Racer yes!!! Switch exclusive? Would make sense.
- If the profile isn't changed... Its all fake.
- If the profile changes/removes all the juicy information...Its an actual developer trolling people because he didn't think it get much attention.
- If the profile changes to "May 2016 - February 2018" ... Its ALL TRUE!!!!
I am okay with all of this.
At the end of the day, Metroid Prime 4 has already been publicly announced. I don’t think putting this info on his LinkedIn profile will jeopardise his career
So he'll be fine but probably just yelled at.
Ridge Racer is coming back? To Switch? Presumably with online play?
My body was not ready to wake up to something this insanely awesome.
I would like to know what Bandai Namco Singapore have done before. I guess they will be mostly made up of a new team, though, will be interesting to see how they handle a FPS game, I don't think any Bando Namco division have made an FPS game.
Also, Ridge Racer 8 is a surprise.
It doesn't actually say Metroid though right? Just unannounced IP, that could be anything.
Metroid Prime.. Warriors! Shoot Lu Bu with the charge beam!
So we'll see...
Ridge Racer would be a good fit for switch actually. The series is a bit too simplistic to justify a big PS4 game and there's no Sony portable to put it on. Switch is a great option for arcade style stuff
As for the news. Cool if true. While quality remains to be seen, this is likely to 100% produce something interesting.
GL Namco Singapore
I'm expecting Ridge Racer to be a repurposed port made into its own entry
• Concept Design – Created many design concepts in order to meet Nintendo’s exacting requirements.
• VIP Presentation – Regularly presented pitches, storyboards, design directives, and gameplay to both Nintendo Headquarters and Bandai Namco Entertainment Group.
So yeah, definitely part of the development.
Riiiidgeeee Racerrrrrrr yeessss
Please be good
