Bandai Namco’s major E3 2019 announcements have seemingly leaked online, including details of the previously rumoured From Software collaboration with A Song of Ice and Fire author George R. R. Martin.
Promotional material for several unannounced projects – the others being a new Tales of Game and Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch ports – appeared on a publicly accessible URL hosted on Bandai Namco’s servers, Gematsu reports.
It’s described as a fantasy action-RPG adventure set in a world created by Dark Souls creator Hidetaka Miyazaki and George R.R. Martin, author of the A Song of Ice and Fire series, which was adapted into Game of Thrones.
“Danger and discovery lurk around every corner in FromSoftware’s largest game to-date,” reads the product description.
The unannounced title was first reported on in May, when it was claimed it will be an open-world game featuring horse riding.
Namco also looks set to announce Tales of Arise, pictured above, for PS4, Xbox One and PC. According to the leak, the next entry in the RPG series – which has sold over 20 million units since debuting in 1995 – will feature “an updated battle system that retains classic Tales of gameplay”.
A synopsis reads: “On the planet Dahna, reverence has always been given to Rena, the planet in the sky, as a land of the righteous and divine. Stories handed down for generations became truth and masked reality for the people of Dahna.
“For 300 years, Rena has ruled over Dahna, pillaging the planet of its resources and stripping people of their dignity and freedom. Our tale begins with two people, born on different worlds, each looking to change their fate and create a new future.”
Finally, 2011 PS3 release Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is coming to new platforms this fall. The Level-5 RPG, which features animation from Studio Ghibli, is being ported to Switch, while Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Remastered will bring “improved graphics and performance” to PS4 and PC.
“Join Oliver as he embarks on an adventure through a world inhabited by new friends and ferocious foes alike in the hopes of bringing back his mother after a tragic incident,” reads the story description.
“With a copy of the Wizard’s Companion in his hand and his trusty friend Drippy by his side, he will travel across this rich fantasy world to tame familiars, take on enemies, and overcome the countless challenges that stand between him and his mother’s salvation.”
