UPDATE: Polygon.com has just confirmed what I heard from my source. What will be at the NYCC event next week is going to be a new Star Wars game. That is just want I had heard along with it may use the Mach Storm cabinet for some dome screen action. So what you can expect is something along the lines of Mach Storm but in an X-Wing fighter.
So this is a little odd. Yesterday as I was rushing around the city (moving houses so any posts this week will likely be brief), I received a text from a source that suggested that the big game Bandai Namco Amusements will unveil is not related to Time Crisis 5, as I had as my top guess in a recent post about the subject. What they say it will be is very intriguing but I need more info before going ahead on spilling those beans. I wouldn’t want to get this one wrong.
That said, the always reliable and credible AM-Net unveiled today that Bandai Namco is going to be holding some “Autumn new product business meetings” in a few weeks, which is typical for Japanese companies to do. With that they give us confirmation that yes, Time Crisis 5 is coming our way. BNA will also be showing off the arcade version of Tekken 7 at that time.
The source that texted me is a very reliable source that hasn’t let me down yet so this makes me wonder – could Time Crisis 5 not be the game that the NYCC event is all about? They suggest it is something related to a very big IP that would make more sense to show at a Comic Con but then again, they could take the opportunity to show Time Crisis 5 now and this other major project for 2015. May as well do the “two birds with one stone” approach since you will have all of that media attention going on.
As stated, I need more info/confirmation before divulging further but that is what I have to share for now. Comment away!
