Bandai Namco has released a new trailer for Dragon Ball FighterZ. This new trailer shows off new characters such as the androids, Krillin and Piccolo, as well as showing off SSJB Goku and Vegeta as preorders. Take a look below.

 

This game looks absolutely amazing, and developer Arc System Works is doing an amazing job with this game. We will continue covering this game as more information comes out.

Bandai Namco has brought their first game to the Switch, and what better way to start than with a collection of their classics. Namco Museum brings classics like Pac-Man, The Tower of Druaga, Splatterhouse, Rolling Thunder and more, along with Pac-Man VS as well. This is not just another collection however, as numerous additions have been made to enhance the experience.

The games included in this collection are:

  • Pac-Man (1980)
  • Galaga (1981)
  • Dig Dug (1982)
  • The Tower of Druaga (1984)
  • Sky Kid (1985)
  • Rolling Thunder (1986)
  • Galaga ’88 (1987)
  • Splatterhouse (1988)
  • Rolling Thunder 2 (1990)
  • Tank Force (1991)
  • Pac-Man Vs. (2003)

 

Among the changes made to the games in this collection, include a challenge mode for the games that help provide additional replay value and help give more fun to the experience. In addition, Namco Museum on Switch takes full advantage of the system’s HD rumble. This is excellent with games like Splatterhouse, with the HD Rumble giving more of a sense of immersion to the game. This is not always for the best though, as some games like The Tower of Druaga do not really need HD rumble and it ends up taking away from the experience.

But aside from these additions, is the game worth getting? Well that depends on how much you like retro games. If you do not like the older era which could be more simplistic, then you will not like this collection all that much. That said, these are excellent games, and the addition of Pac-Man VS. is a great one, even with the need for multiple systems to use the multiplayer to its full effect.  With the games included, it comes out to a reasonably priced package and could be a great introduction to the retro scene. HD Rumble and challenge mode may not appeal much to some, but if you are curious about the older games but need just a little more to push you into buying them, you could do a lot worse.

For retro fans, I would definitely recommend this collection. For fans of modern gaming, I would say take a look before you buy. These aren’t the 90’s era bombastic arcade games but a more simplistic style. That said, I think I for my money’s worth with games like Splatterhouse, Sky Kid, The Tower of Druaga, and Rolling Thunder. It is worth checking out, but be aware it may not be to your liking.

Bandai Namco Entertainment has revealed some multiplayer options for Pac-Man VS. in Namco Museum for Switch.

 

You can play with 1 to 3 people on 1 Nintendo Switch but only as Ghosts.
Multiplayer will require each player to have a controller.
With 2 Nintendo Switches you can play as Pac-Man (1 person) and as a Ghost (1 to 3 people) by local communication by downloading a free App on the eShop enabling Download Play (as long as one person has purchased the full game).

 

This is some cool news. Although online multiplayer may not be possible for this ( at least right now), but this is a great alternative. Hopefully the set up works and fans can appreciate this classic.

Here is some surprising news. Bandai Namco and Capcom have entered into a cross-licensing agreement for online matching for games like Street Fighter.

Capcom stated

The purpose of this agreement is to improve the user experience while accelerating the production of titles and reducing development costs for both parties. Further, with this cross-license for online matching, Capcom aims to effectively utilize the patents it has been granted in game series such as Street Fighter in order to deliver even more exciting content to game players.

With this agreement as a starting point, Capcom will continue to explore cross-licensing opportunities in order to safeguard its patents while improving the user experience and contributing to a healthier game industry.

This is really exciting news, as the two companies working together to use their patents to better online gaming could be a (no pun intended) game changer for the industry. This could usher in a new era for online gaming, for Street Fighter and Tekken and other such games.

Dragon Ball Fighter Z is coming for PS4, Xbox One and PC next year, but Switch owners are not down for the count yet.

In an interview with Gamesblog, the developers revealed they may bring the game to Switch still, but there would need to be a large amount of demand for it.

Well, if that is the case, then fans should show demand and let Arc System Works and Bandai Namco know they want it on Switch,
