Several Gundam and anime-related games will be displayed at Bandai's booth.
TOKYO--Bandai has announced its lineup of games for the Tokyo Game Show--and it will come as no surprise that it will present a new Gundam title. Tentatively titled "Kidou Senshi Gundam" (Mobile Suit Gundam), the project has been in development by Bandai and Namco for two years under the code name of Project Pegasus, and it is slated for release next year on the PlayStation 2. The player will get to experience Gundam's one-year war through various missions in the 3D action game, which uses technology from past Namco 3D games like the Ace Combat and Tekken series.
Other games at the show will include a Gundam Seed title for the PS2, and a 3D adventure game based on the anime and manga series Conan slated for release on the PS2 this winter. The list of new games from Bandai to be exhibited at the Tokyo Game Sow is as follows:
Kidou Senshi Gundam Seed: Owaranai Ashita-e
Naruto: Narutimate Heroes 2
