Poor Namco Bandai — of all the major Japanese publishers, they seem to receive the least, well, anything. They don’t absorb as much criticism as more controversial companies like Capcom, Konami or Square-Enix, but they also don’t get as much attention either. They just sort of putter along under the radar.
For instance, did you know Namco Bandai recently held their big 2012 Global Gamers Day event? Well, they did, and they actually announced some pretty damn interesting stuff. Among the games coming from Namco Bandai over the next year-or-so — a Star Trek title that acts as a prequel to the upcoming 2013 J. J. Abrams Trek movie, a North American localization of the beautiful looking Studio Ghibli RPG Ni no Kuni, and of course more Tekken and One Piece games.

Well, that certainly didn’t look anything like Star Trek. Don’t get me wrong, it could be a good game — it’s being developed by Digital Extremes who have worked on solid stuff like Bioshock 2, The Darkness 2 and Dark Sector — it just didn’t look anything like Star Trek aside from that half-second shot of a guy in a yellow shirt.
I want this. Really f–king bad.
