Namco Bandai unveils new Euro line-up

A pre-E3 ‘Level Up’ event in Barcelona showcased some major new releases from Namco Bandai for Q3 this year.

The third in the publisher’s popular Family Trainer series will launch for Nintendo’s Wii this autumn.

Also due this autumn is Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2 for PS3 and Xbox 360. The studio behind the original has taken on board fan feedback, re-worked the game’s camera and tweaked the control system to make the title more accessible.

Joining the game is Dragon Ball Z: Tenkaichi Tag Team for PSP. The fighting title is also due for launch this autumn along with Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2.

Meanwhile, Namco Bandai used its event to confirm that God Eater for PSP will reach Europe in 2011.

The game has garnered critical praise in Japan and has racked up over a half a million in sales since its original launch in February.

Other major games on show at Level Up included the revised Splatterhouse, Ace Combat Joint Assault, Blue Dragon: Awakened Shadow, Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom and Enslaved – Odyssey to the West.
