    Default Bandai Namco annouces "Rise of Incarnates": New F2P 2-on-2 Beat 'Em Up

    http://www.riseofincarnates.com/

    BANDAI NAMCO Games America Inc. today announces an entirely new franchise, Rise of Incarnates. Forged by the creators of Tekken and SoulCalibur; unfettered 3D battles are about to be unleashed upon PC gamers. Rise of Incarnates is scheduled for release in the latter half of 2014 for PCs in the Americas.

    Born from BANDAI NAMCO Games’ fighting game pedigree, the teams behind Tekken, SoulCalibur, and Gundam Extreme VS unite to bring Rise of Incarnates to life. Rise of Incarnates features ground-breaking 2 vs. 2 gameplay, a multitude of characters and roles, and battlegrounds throughout shattered yet accurately rendered real-world cityscapes. These diverse character types and roles, each with unique skills and powers, appeal to a variety of play-styles while accommodating expansive team dynamics and strategy. Players employ sharp reflexes, mental resolve, and strategic insight as they run, jump, and fly through 3D arenas, engaging in both close-quarters combat and long-range assaults.

    Players take the role of “Incarnates”, humans that command untold mythical powers as they vie to avoid tragedy and reshape the course of their world. Due to their special abilities, Incarnates are both feared and loathed by the general population while being persecuted by the authorities that want to harness and use their power for their own nefarious needs. One day, a mysterious voice calls out to the Incarnates telling them the only way to avoid certain destruction is to destroy the “Sovereign of this era.” It is here that the battle for dominance amongst Incarnates begins and the fate of life on Earth hangs in the balance.

    “As a new franchise, Rise of Incarnates represents the next big step in expanding BANDAI NAMCO’s footprint in the Free-to-Play gaming space,” said In Joon Hwang, Director of Digital Games at BANDAI NAMCO Games America Inc. “Having been built from the ground up, Rise of Incarnates contains the necessary attributes that create a rich and dynamic gaming environment that fans are sure to enjoy.”

    Rise of Incarnates for PC is scheduled for release in the latter part of 2014.
    Besides from those laughably bad character designs, I'm interested. The last time I can remember the Tekken and Soul Calibur teams working together was on Urban Reign for the PS2, which was a VERY underrated game. Judging by the gameplay shown, it looks like it could serve as a spiritual successor to Psychic Force 2012, which was also very underrated game. As long as the F2P part isn't too bad like their previous F2P title (Ridge Racer: Driftopia), then I can see myself getting into this.

    Ugh, Anarchy Reigns... That game had so much potential but was ultimately ruined by terrible gameplay balance and a shoddy netcode.

    Still, a lot of people have been making that connection but I just don't see it, strangely enough.

    Gameplay footage:



    It plays EXACTLY like the Gundum Extreme VS games.
    Not surprising since most of the development team that worked on those games are also making this game.

    I actually used to play Gundam Extreme VS a few years ago. A personal friend of mine who owns a local arcade splurged and bought a handful of machines for it after playing it himself while on vacation to Japan. Costed him a fairly pretty penny but it's still one of the most played arcade games there.

    Interesting! I just finished watching a 1v1 action fighting game tournament finals. I loved Lost Saga and Super Smash Bros.

    I ADORE the movement-system!

    After watching the gameplay video, I have to say:
    I'll be playing this 24/7.

    If it will be anything like Gundam VS then it will be really good.

    I didn't see any red tape in the email I got nor did I sign a weaver. If I don't see anything saying otherwise, when the game opens, I'll let you know if my 360 controller works with it. If my 360 controller works with it; you should be able to use it directly or map it with external software.

    Same; I was thinking "Oh, great, another website I have to sign up for... WAIT STEAM!" It was a pleasant surprise.

    Reached out to Bandai to see if there is a NDA in place.
