It's just overall Namco-Bandai strategy talk at the moment. Don't think GAF will be interested until something crazy pops up. Will update if that happens.

US and Europe press events are now being consolidated into one same-day event (this one).

So it's a US/EU event rolled in one, and they had some One Piece goodie bag stuff and showed some images of the game.

Hope rising...

it is already a miracle if bamco announcing one or two localization outside of they "usual" stuff and western title in this event!

they certainly won't bring their psp line up ( i want oreimo and bunch of gundam scamco! ) ,and no way GvG exvs, 2nd srwog, idolm@ster, toki towa and mecha hybrid disc game like eureka ao,rinne, or other PS3 title will be announced:p

that left pretty much one piece, tales, or .hack hybrid the only possibilities could get localization announcement (if we are lucky)

Toki to Towa would be amazing, but sadly, if it's localized, I don't think it'll be from them.

EDIT: Kinda seems like their just reporting on the brief flashing though. I'd kinda like a more direct confirmation, even if it does seem like a sure thing.

yeah I went back and edited my post, I can't imagine it won't be coming though.

These announcers tell terrible jokes.

DRAGON BALL Z on screen yo.

/edit FUck that's a lot of DBZ games. Like 41 games are on screen from Super nintendo, to gamecube, to Came Boy Colour, DS, Wii, PS3...

"What haven't we done?" well, duh, Kinect, I guess...

DBZ: Annual updates that somehow get worse with each new entry.

I assume DBZ Kinect is next. It would be very fitting.

Asian nerd guy sitting somewhere. Black t-shirt, blue-and-white shirt. I'm from Hyper.

DBZ for Kinect confirmed. Kamehamehame, yo

My mistake. It's a advertising video. Nothing worthwhile.

It looks like call and response type stuff. "Respond to attacks with these stupid gestures!".

God you guys are going to love how incredibly lolz tier this ad is. Flashy lights ALL UP IN DIS SHIT.

honestly I think the kinect game would have been fun when I was 12-13 and really into DBZ, unfortunately most DBZ fans at this point are in the 20s and most of us who play games enough to own something like kinect likely would be driving crazy by the likely input issues well before we could get real enjoyment from mimicing the poses like we did as kids lol

aka, I think this game had great potential 10 years ago, not so much now lol.

VOICE OVER DUDE MISPRONOUNCED SAIYAN.

50+ characters

AH HERE WE GO. Dark Souls PC talk... wait, not, it was a terrible segue to talk about Microsoft. Hah, QR collectable cards to unlock characters in DBZ Kinect. Sorry Namco-Bandai, you're no Kid Icarus.

When's embargo lift? And what's it for, if people are tweeting about the conf., anyway?

Visual embargo, presentation and interview embargoed until 17th/18th. Keynote content not embargoed, except for visuals.

God, a QR card trailer. Wonderful.

"PERFORM AUTHENTIC DRAGON BALL Z MOVES"

This electric guitar stuff is wankier than I remember DBZ guitars being. Oh hai Raditz.

If for some reason you would like to play DBZ Kinect, it is out on OCTOBER 12th. Presenter just tried to get us to say Kamehameha, only the Namco-Bandai dudes at the back yelled it.

Okay, new topic. ONE PIECE I think.

Ah, thanks for clarifying.

Wish I was there. Not big enough to afford a flight to Dubai, however.

Either way, Namco better jump on that Xillia localization announcement. Like, now.

They're bringing over the latest One Piece game to Europe and the US. Gameplay Vid.

I'm going to be honest here: This looks swank as fuck. Japanese voices help though.

2012 on-screen. Pirate Warriors confirmed. PS3 on screen. (Exclusive?) Digital and physical release simultaneously across US and Europe and (selected retailers to be named?) November of this year, get hype.

Next item. Dark Souls PC. (Namco-Bandai staff up the back whooping, lol)
