Namco Bandai Teaser Site – New 3DS Game?

Earlier this week Namco Bandai opened a new teaser site with the following image:

One can only guess what this image might mean.  It seems as though we have some speculation as to what the game is now, thanks to andriasang.com and the latest issue of Famitsu.

Cattle Call, developer of such games as Metal Max 3 and Space Invaders Get Even, is working on a unique new 3DS simulation game for Namco Bandai. Titled Brave Company, the new game is revealed on the pages of this week’s Famitsu.

In Brave Company, you play as the CEO of a hero dispatch agency. You’ll have to interview potential heroes, hire them, and send them out to the city to protect the peace. As you advance in the game, both your company and the city will grow.

Hero types include knights, archers, priests and wizards. If you send out a hero that’s better suited to a particular quest, you’ll have a better chance of success.

Brave Company features music from Prof. Sakamoto, image visual work from Tomomi Kobayashi (SaGa series), and character designs from Foo Midori (official site).

A 3DS release is set for October 27. An iOS version is also due in August.

About the author:

Jeremy’s love of gaming, especially Nintendo started in the late 80’s when his parents bought him and his older brother an NES. Many hours were spent playing Mario and Duck Hunt. Eventually Jeremy graduated to bigger and better games and systems, like the SNES, GC, Wii, 3DS, and finally to the Wii U. Ask him what the defining moment of his childhood gaming was and he’ll answer, “the day I beat Zelda 2.” To this day that game holds a special place in his heart. His favorite types of games are platformers.

Jeremy started blogging for NintendoFuse in October 2010. He started off as a lurker on the forums who won a free copy of And Yet It Moves on WiiWare. From there he realized he liked the forums and the site and wanted to remain a part of it. He was brought on board shortly thereafter and has helped post news and reviews for the past couple of years. Currently Jeremy has taken a step back to focus on family and school. He assists in minor back-end site maintenance from time to time.
