Namco Bandai Games’s website has started a countdown to next week Wednesday for its mysterious Nintendo 3DS collaborative mystery project with Sega and Capcom! The Banpresto logo also appears on the teaser site, they are a Japanese toy & games company (of Super Robot Wars fame) owned by Namco Bandai. Make of that what you will.
The 3DS-exclusive game is tentatively titled “Sega x Capcom x Namco Bandai“, which hints it may be a portable fighting / crossover game with playable characters from all three major game developers.
Nintendo’s CEO Satoru Iwata actually mentioned this mystery 3DS game back in February’s Nintendo Direct broadcast, as part of the future lineup of Wii and 3DS games (such as New Dr. Kawashima’s Brain Age / Training for 3DS).
According to Andriasang, at the time the official Nintendo Direct website was updated with “blobs of pixels that many referred to as chromosomes. The general belief was that the pixel blobs represented characters.” These include familiar faces from series such as Mega Man, Street Fighter, Tekken, Devil May Cry, .HACK, etc.
Here’s the guessed Sega x Capcom x Namco Bandai character lineup:
