Banadi Namco intends to release Power Rangers Super Megaforce on 3DS, the company announced today. The side-scrolling action game will be available this fall.

In Power Rangers Super Megaforce, players will be able to experience the legendary powers of the Super Megaforce Rangers and save the earth from evil. Characters from Super Megaforce Rangers will be playable in addition to the Legendary Red Power Rangers and the iconic Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. Additionally, the game will offer epic Zord battles and defeat colossal monsters that threaten humankind.

Bandai Namco has announced a sequel to Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures. Aptly named “Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures 2”, the game will be released later this year on Wii U, 3DS, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360.

Here’s the game’s official overview:

Following the colorful characters and world of the PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures animated series, PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures 2 will feature Pac, Spiral and Cylindria in an all-new storyline as they defend PacWorld from the ghoulish army of Lord Betrayus. Players will be able to explore the lands of PacWorld far beyond the bustling streets of Pacopolis and the Netherworld through the depths of the ocean floor and into space.

In order to defeat the havoc-causing ghosts, Pac will need to do what he does best… EAT! Chomping down on the various Power Berries will give Pac a much needed boost to fight back against his enemies. Utilizing the many types of Power Berries from the Tree of Life, Pac will be able to transform into many different and exciting versions of himself, including enhanced versions of returning powers such as Fire Pac and Ice Pac and epic new transformations including the gigantic PacZilla. Pac will also be able to pilot one of many vehicles seen in the show including the Lemon Rocket and Pacerchini, to help his cause to save the world.

Cylindria and Spiral also join in for the action, allowing players to take control of the Pac’s friends in special fast-paced on-rails levels. The two best friends will also be able to assist Pac with a helping hand when players find themselves in tough situations.

First screenshots from Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures 2 can be found above.

Bandai Namco has shared a ton of details about Tales of the World: Reve Unitia. You can find them rounded up below.

Story Prologue

– For as long as people have seen dreams in their sleep, there’s been a world that’s accumulated those dreams and taken shape from them
– World is known as Revaria
– Those who live in the world are known as the Lufres
– Lufres maintain balance in the world by purifying Vuur
– Vuur: the embodiment of people’s bad dreams and wavering hearts
– Things have started to change recently
– Vuur, which once had no physical form to call its own, has taken shape as a monster
– Only the Dream Guardians can face Vuur in its current state
– These are a group of powerful Lufres
– But without warning, every last Dream Guardian disappears without a trace
– The only Lufres remaining are young ones that still lack much strength
– They set out to summon people from The Awakened World in the hopes that they can find ones with the power to fight Vuur
– The Tales characters who end up being recruited as a result lose their memories of their respective worlds
– They still have their core beliefs and so they set out to take down a threat that poses danger to every world, not just Revaria
– Vuur continues to grow more powerful
– The young Lufres, otherwise known as Wako in their world, were left behind live in fear
– Taking matters into their own hands, they use what little power they have to try and summon Awakened Ones, but it ends in failure as their targets are spread out all over the world of Revaria, rather than just with them in their town
– One of the young Wako is Terun
– Terun leaves the town in order to try and find these Awakened Ones in spite of fear of Vuur
– While these fears are realized when Vuur tries to attack him, he’s saved in the nick of time by two of the ones he’s looking for, Asbel and Lloyd
– The two work with Terun and the others continue to gather more and more people who were summoned to Revalia as the work on undoing the danger that besieges the world

Nahato’s Storyline

– While Terun is meeting with Asbel and Lloyd, Nahato meets two more Tales characters summoned to Revalia, Yuri and Jade
– Worried about the fate of the Tales worlds in addition to Revalia, Nahato and company take up arms and fight
– Terun’s story otherwise unfolds from a different perspective altogether

Terun

– Terun: “Please, let met go with you all! I can do more than just project you all!”
– Youngest member of the Lufres
– Lacks in confidence and strength but makes up for with sheer kindness
– His dealings with the Awakened Ones result in him awakening to a strong resolve
– Terun normally resembles something akin the Tales series’ previous mascot characters, but in battle, he takes on the form of a human and fights alongside the other characters

Nahato

– “Then that makes two of us. I have something to protect as well. That’s all.”
– Strongest Dream Guardian among the Lufres
– Like a parent/sibling to Terun as the one who looks after him
– Nahato uses the power of Dream Silk to take on Vuur and like Terun has two different forms he uses depending on the situation and stands at 5’8” (173 cm.) when he’s in his fighting form

Asbel Lhant (Tales of Graces)

– “We can’t turn our backs on this problem, not when it affects our own worlds as well.”
– Young swordsman who ends up helping to save Terun in a forest
– Polite and serious, he’s always good about looking after others

Lloyd Irving (Tales of Symphonia)

– “What are you saying? Of course we’re all friends here!”
– Swordsman who wields two blades
– Helps Asbel save Terun
– While he can get fired up, Lloyd is fundamentally a nice person at heart

Natalia L.K. Lanvaldear (Tales of the Abyss)

– “It’s only natural that I’d help someone who’s hurt.”
– Comes from regal stock
– Natalia is an archer who’s more than willing to take up her bow to ensure justice is served

Yuri Lowell (Tales of Vesperia)

– “I’m not one to just stand and gawk while people are out their risking their neck. I’m going to go lend them a hand.”
– Yuri is deeply cynical of the world around him, choosing to operate under his own principles as a swordsman
– His sheer speed will have players’ heads spinning if they’re not careful

Jade Curtis (Tales of the Abyss)

– “Heh, you kids are just full of energy, aren’t you? Fine, you win. Shall I tag along then?”
– Mysterious man who’s highly proficient in both Artes and fighting with a spear
– Tends to wear a smile, but it’s hard to read what emotions really lie underneath it
– “I’m going, too! I want to help everyone else out!”
– Naïve and friendly on the outside, but has a strong willpower about her
– She mainly uses strong attack Artes, but is also fully capable of acting as a healer as well
