NEW DIGIMON ALL-STAR RUMBLE TRAILER AND SCREENSHOTS by Aisha Anime

BANDAI NAMCO Games Europe have recently released a new DIGIMON All-Star Rumble trailer showcasing various playable Digimon and their Digivolved forms in the heat of battle! Veemon, Gomamon and Gatomon take the rumble to the next level as they Digivolve and execute their powerful ultimate attacks to blow away all opponents and even destroy some of their surroundings. 

But why must the Digimon fight each other? Players can play through the game’s Story Mode to find out the origin of the “Digimon Evolution Tournament” and also discover the hidden agenda behind it...

Each Digimon will have its own story sequence in Story Mode and must traverse through each stage by defeating minor enemies and interacting with various stage elements. At the end of each stage players will be challenged by a Digimon rival, who will fight ferociously to knock the player out of the highly competitive tournament. Players must rise to the challenge, Digivolve and become a true Digimon hero! 

DIGIMON All-Star Rumble is scheduled for release in Europe and Australasia on the PlayStation®3 system and Xbox 360 on 14 November, 2014. For more information on BANDAI NAMCO Games Europe game titles and products, please visit www.BandaiNamcoGames.com

Bandai Namco TGS Preview by Aisha Anime

Knowing that the Tokyo Game Show was going to be packed with press as well as normal attendees Bandai Namco thought out a great way so we could all get a chance on their hot new games. They invited me to play them in the privacy of their impressive offices with the producers and developers on hand to answer any questions.

Upon entering the autumn themed HQ with chairs, fruit, Gundams adorning the site, we followed the trail upstairs past all the merchandise in cabinets including Tekken, Love Idol, Tales of, Pac man and drum game kits. You could also play with their many pods which had cameras and motion sensors to make shades appear on your face or you could make the appearing fish move away from you.

All the press were designated a team leader we had Dennis from America who helped where possible to explain the games to us and take us to the talks.

Digimon     All Stars Rumble

Digimon All Stars Rumble

It was exciting to be trying out Digimon All Stars Rumble  before anyone else in the UK, having such nostalgia for the game, it was a shock to see how serious it was. The game was a full fighting game with room to digivolve and use super moves. You could also collect items that randomly appeared after a timer in the fighting area to either target bombs at your competitor, or reverse their evolution and you digivolve instead. It was fast paced and easy to pick up.

Tales of Zestiria   

Tales of Zestiria 

Tales of Zestiria was the game everyone huddled around constantly, the game had two demo modes available to try out one was to demonstrate the CGI where you could feast your eyes on Square’s top notch graphics and get a glimpse of all the new characters. We all wanted to try out the battle mode which showed some significant changes such as seamless integration from cut scene to fighting stance. No loading time at all, before selecting your move.  We got to hear a presentation by Hideo Baba who announced the great news that by great demand of the fans he will be making all future games dual audio so we will get the option of English and Japanese audio. At the moment him and his team are focusing on new ideas and projects so porting old titles are not a priority however that being said Tales of Hearts was announced to be re-released internationally.

Dragon Ball Zenoverse

Dragon Ball Zenoverse

Dragon Ball Zenoverse had a few playable characters where I tried out supers and you fly off the ground and do different attacks in the air, the graphics had improved significantly with slick looking 3D characters on screen. New modes in the game include a master and pupil system so kid gohan cane learn from Piccolo and inherit his special moves and also engage in conversation and certain decisions made can be brought back to haunt you. You can also customise your OWN hero for battles and online modes which is the most exciting part for me. This game will be available on Steam so this can have a huge online following; I look forward to the beta testing.

Pacman    and the Ghostly Adventures 2    

Pacman and the Ghostly Adventures 2 

Pacman and the Ghostly Adventures 2 was a different concept reminding me of 3D Sonic’s transition; this game however was based on the Pacman animated series and includes the worlds and characters shown previously. You play as 3D Pacman chomping on things, attacking whoever gets in your way for a fun kids game.

A new project was also unveiled to us The Rise of Incarnates with similar character styles from Tekken, this was a whole new game which is free to play. The only time you need to pay is if you want to customise items on your character. 6 characters had been previously revealed, and we were shown a new character called Ra. He is a French guy who fights using a book and has a different mechanics compared to the other characters.

Overall a fun packed day of playing new games and talks with the people behind them with the staff being really helpful and feeding us too. The best welcome to Japan by a games company!
