Bandai Namco will announce three Switch exclusive games in 2018

In a recent financial results briefing, President Mitsuaki Taguchi announced that in 2018 there will be three Bandai Namco Switch exclusive games. First reported by Siliconera, Bandai Namco will take the time between Spring and Summer (Autumn and Winter in the southern hemisphere) to announce three major titles.

Taguchi mentioned that the company has plenty of resources available and will continue to develop for PS4 and Xbox One. Apparently, Bandai Namco has been surprised by the Switch’s popularity.

Bandai Namco has published three games for the Switch. The only one to be released in the West is Dragonball Xenoverse 2. Taguchi noted that all three of the titles released have performed above expectations.

Bandai Namco’s IP is wide-ranging, though our money is on PAC-Man, TekkenNaruto or Ridge Racer making their way to Switch. We’ll bring you more news of the Bandai Namco Switch exclusive games as we have it.
