Namco’s teased 3DS game is an anniversary crossover

Wednesday, 17th July 2013 08:52 GMT By Dave Cook

Namco Bandai has been teasing a new 3DS game this week with a countdown, and day-by-day new elements are added to the title’s page. The latest addition suggest it’s an anniversary cross-over between two franchises.

The countdown site has three days left and as you can see, the anniversary and first letter of each franchise has been revealed. Now, I looked into Namco’s back catalogue and couldn’t find any games beginning with either letter in 1983 or 1993 that would warrant a crossover, so its possible Namco is crossing over third-party IP like it did in Project X Zone.

Any guesses folks? I’m stumped.

Thanks AGB.

    Pole Position X Ridge Racer

    The “V” is actually a chevron and the F is for Finish line.

    The F could be for “Fist of the North Star?” (Which doesn’t begin with F in Japanese but sssh). That apparently started in 1984, which would be the more logical anniversary year to go on (no point celebrating an anniversary that would be over by the time the game releases).

    Any chance you could throw a link to the actual website in the article?

    @5: Fist of the North Star sort of makes sense, but the recent games for that have been Tecmo-Koei’s work.

    I can’t really find anything that fits either V or F in the lists of what this company owns directly. On the Namco side, Phozon is spelled with an F for the romanization of Japanese characters. Other than that, I don’t think we’ll be able to tell until we get more information.
