Don't worry, someone (me, apparently) will make a thread about it. Only one circle pad still.

I don't know that I'd call them spinoffs. Even if they are, they are still Mario Kart games, and I wish they'd port them over to the Wii, Wii U, or 3DS. They look like a lot of fun, and since they were developed on Nintendo's Triforce arcade board, which was basically an overclocked GameCube, I'm sure it would be incredibly easy to port them to either of the Wii consoles. The Wii is built on the same architecture of the GameCube, it's just a souped up version with a little more processing power and RAM.

Wow, I did not see that coming. The Pac-Man company? I wonder if they'll throw in SoulCalibur characters. Nintendo let them use Link in SC, would be a chance for them to return the favor.

I kinda doubt it. It says "Higuchi from the Tales games will be directing.", so I think that if anyone would get in or make an appearance, it would probably be a Tales of character, but you never know. I think it might be unlikely if anyone gets in, though. Cameos are probably more likely. But eh, what do I know, haha.


Sweet was hoping for a good 3rd party cross over

It's not the first time Namco's worked closely with Nintendo. They made Mario Kart arcade games that were released exclusively in Japan. Interestingly, the 2 Mario Kart games were the seventh and eighth entries in the series. That means Mario Kart 7 is actually Mario Kart 9.

Actually, it isn't Japan exclusive. I played it at an arcade once.

Why do people point to their wrists when asking for the time, but don't point to their crotch when they ask where the bathroom is?

No. I don't want Pacman in my Smash Bros.

Just cause they're helping develop it, doesn't mean they're putting in Pacman.

Pac-Man and a few other Namco characters were playable in the Mario Kart Arcade Grand Prix, so it's entirely possible. Seeing as how the 2 companies did cooperate on the games and are now working together again, they should really consider porting them to the Wii U. It would be great to have another major title in development for the Wii U, and releasing 2 new Mario Karts that were Japan exclusive titles would be an awesome way to increase the appeal of the system. The games are already done, it would just be a matter of getting the finished code to run on the Wii U.

I know what they said about all characters having to originate from a game, but I don't care. Luffy for SSB4! >: O

Why can't they let HAL work on it again? Do they not realize Melee was greatness?

Brawl was definitely not greatness, though. They ain't got it anymore. I'm happy seing that some new blood get to work on it, and it just happens to be my third favorite developer.

I'll need to see some gameplay before I can judge. I just hope it all works out for the best. I definitely see Pac-Man being in the game, though. Just because he's a classic, iconic figure in gaming. Maybe he'll just be an assist trophy, though.

I really want Simon Belmont and Mega Man in the game. I've wanted to see Samus kick Mega Man's ass ever since I was a kid. Mega Man can't even duck. That's not mega. That's sub-average.

Oh this could be interesting.

I wonder how will pacman play like.

He'll have to walk around, avoiding other players until he collects a Smash Ball and then he can eat the other players.

Dis means we'll get the game sooner. Nintendo, you finally heard Sakurai's plea of giving him a bigger team to work with. You gave him a whole studio.

And Bamco for stepping in- awesome. 2013 = reveal

2014 = release

At least, I'm hoping.



Well I'm feeling meh about this. A little better since I just remembered Namco is responsible for Tekken, lol.

I just hope we don't see too many third party characters, like lets all remember Smash Bros. is suppose to be about Nintendo.

remembers previous Namco made Nintendo titles


But I kid, this doesn't change anything for me other than hoping for some Klonoa.

Beyond Good and Evil 2 better be happening! In the meanwhile though, here's a fun little Let's Play of the original. Think you'll like the game if you like Zelda!
