One Piece is 25 years old! When you have your own series that releases a new episode every single week, that really adds up (nearly a thousand episodes if you’re wondering). To celebrate Luffy’s birthday, video game publisher Bandai Namco revealed a new One Piece video game is on the way — this one an RPG.
If you’re a JRPG fan, then Bandai Namco’s Tales series needs no introduction. But even if you are, you might be unfamiliar with the title “Tales Of Luminaria” and might be thinking, “When did THAT happen? Did I miss one?” Sort of….Tales of Luminaria is a mobile game.
Bandai Namco’s Tales series released its latest mainline chapter, Tales Of Arise, on Playstation 5 last September. If you’ve played it, and you’re itching for more, there are 16 more Tales games to track down among various systems going back 25 years…or, in a pinch, you could just download the new Tales Of Luminaria mobile game.

Every game Bandai Namco plans to show off on the E3 floor, and probably in a few press conferences, was revealed this afternoon via a huge leak. It sounds bad, but when you think about it, managing to hold off the ravenous press until ONE DAY before the festivities begin is quite impressive. What difference do a few hours make, anyway?
Shonen Jump characters have appeared in their own video games before, but so many have never crossed over together, and never on such a grand scale. Bandai Namco’s Jump Force aims to be the ultimate brawling game for any fan of the popular long-running manga magazine.
Bandai Namco’s Jump Force promises to be one of the largest manga/anime crossovers ever, with tons of characters from across the mag’s history piled into one place. Already confirmed are Goku, Luffy, Naruto, Gon and Hisoka from Hunter Hunter, Yugi…and now Seiya and Shiryu from Saint Seiya.

Bandai Namco’s SoulCalibur VI is less than two weeks away, and the company is drumming up hype with a new documentary now streaming on YouTube. “Swords and Souls” dives into the history of the celebrated fighting series, from its origins in the late 90s to the megapopular SoulCalibur II arcade machine.
Ten years ago, Namco released Tales of Vesperia in America, on the XBox 360. XBox has never been a strong brand in Namco’s native Japan, so it was also released on the Playstation 3 as a Director’s Cut with tons of extra content. That version, sadly, was never ported over…until now.
