RUMOR – Namco Bandai to Unveil New Fighting Game at E3 2013

By on June 7, 2013 at 8:44 am

Denkiphile is reporting that in a recent e-mail sent to the press, Namco Bandai has announced they will be unveiling a number of new titles at this year’s E3. These include two new Pac-Man titles, a new racing game, and, most importantly for us, a brand new unannounced fighting game. As there is no official press release to be found, it would probably be best to take all of this with a grain of salt.

This new game will supposedly be presented by Tekken director Katsuhiro Harada, which may lead some to believe that we will finally see the first bits of work on Tekken x Street Fighter. Then again, Tekken x Street Fighter has technically already been announced, so we’re most likely in store for something completely different.

Shoryuken will be at E3 next week and we will give you a full update on this mystery game when we visit Namco Bandai’s booth.
