Bandai Namco has announced “Puzzle Solving Battle Tore! Treasure Hunting Adventure”, a new 3DS title based on a Japanese game show. It features various challenges – such as what’s showcased in the clip above – in the form of mini-games and quiz battles. That’s the only information we have at present!


Bandai Namco has gone live with the official Tales of the World: Reve Unitia teaser site. Access it here. As is usually the case with teaser sites, there isn’t much to see at present. It should be updated with a bunch of content in the future.

Bandai Namco recently put up a rather interesting job posting for “Smash Bros. 6”. Although it was taken down after being discovered by various outlets, it mentioned that the game will be released next year on Wii U and 3DS.

Here’s what you should know about the job listing:

– Project currently being worked on by 120 staffers
– Number expected to increase to 200
– Team needs programmers for various roles
– They’ll be put into different teams to handle characters, stages, 3D programming, motion, game mode, mini-games, menu, UI, and more
– Message on the recruitment page:

“Social games are currently a big hit, but the current state of job opportunities for making retail games is critically low. In the midst of this, this will likely be your only chance to be part of a development project for the Smash Bros. [series], which has surpassed a total of 10 million in worldwide sales. And Bandai Namco believes that now is the best time to recruit programmers for retail games.”

– Only 3 Smash Bros. games thus far
– Wii U/3DS games would count as the fourth
– The two games have generally been thought of as “Smash Bros. 4”
– “6” could be a typo
– Super Smash Bros. Wii U/3DS may have been delayed into 2015
– Another possibility is that Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS are the fourth and fifth in the series, and Smash Bros. 6 is an entirely different/updated version of the game being released next year
– Tatsuya Matsumura, a consultant who uploaded the ad, seems to still have all of his other recruitment ads live on the website
– Matsumura appears to have been in the business of a career consultant to connect developers and software companies with programmers and engineers since 2011
He currently specializes in getting people in touch with gaming and software developers, and has successfully helped the recruitment of over 2,000 people thus far


Bandai Namco is finally bringing the Tales series back to 3DS. “Tales of the World: Reve Unitia” is in development for Nintendo’s portable, Jump reveals this week.

Tales of the World: Reve Unitia is a simulation role-playing game with strong ties to the smartphone game Tales of the World: Tactics Union. Both titles contain the same world and characters. Reve Unitia will offer “a dream world linking the Tales of franchise together.”

Jump confirms that the game is set in Revaria, the world that dreams made. It’ll feature four popular characters from past Tales of games as playable characters, complete with full voicing of dialogue: Natalia Luzu Kimlasca-Lanvaldear (Michiko Neya) from Tales of the Abyss, Meredy (Omi Minami) from Tales of Eternia, Yuri Lowell (Kousuke Toriumi) from Tales of Vesperia, and Jade Curtiss (Takehito Koyasu) from Tales of the Abyss.

Daigo Okumura handled designs for two characters: the timid, gentle-hearted Terun and the strong, big-brother-like Nahato. Tales of Graces F’s Asbel Lhant (voiced by Takahiro Sakurai) and Tales of Symphonia’s Lloyd Irving (Katsuyuki Konishi) will fight alongside each other in the game.
