Bandai Namco to develop new FPS and 'Ridge Racer 8' exclusive to Nintendo Switch

(Facebook/BandaiNamcoEU)Gamers can expect Bandai Namco Entertainment to develop more games for Nintendo Switch.

Owners of the Nintendo Switch can look forward to some exciting and exclusive offerings from one of Japan's leading video game developers.

According to a Gamespot report, Bandai Namco Entertainment will seemingly develop a first-person shooter game that will be exclusive to Nintendo's flagship console. Moreover, the developer is also working on a "Ridge Racer 8" video game for the console.

The details pertaining to the games, which are yet to be officially announced by Bandai Namco, were spotted on the LinkedIn profile of Shawn Pitman, one of the company's developers in Singapore. The post read the following: "Projects – Unannounced IP (First Person Shooter/Adventure Exclusive to the Nintendo Switch)." Moreover, the developer's profile also mentioned "Ridge Race 8 (Drift-based High Speed Car Racing Exclusive to the Nintendo Switch.)" The details, however, were already taken down by Pitman.

Interestingly, a VG24/7 report noted that the unannounced FPS from Bandai Namco may possibly be "Metroid Prime 4." The game, which was first announced by Nintendo during last year's E3 event, have yet to mention anything about its developer. The report said that the details seem to point to Bandai Namco as the developer behind the game.

Details such as a Singapore-based team and veterans who previously worked under LucasArts all sum up to what a Press-Start report has also found out about the team people behind Bandai Namco in Singapore.

Back in November last year, Bandai Namco has already expressed its plans of developing more games for the Nintendo Switch. Wall Street Journal's (WSJ) Takashi Mochizuki shared through Twitter that the studio is pumping in more resources to create more games for the console beginning April this year. "We have put three games on the Switch so far and all of them are doing well," Bandai Namco president Mitsuaki Taguchi told WSJ.

"It's a shame, but we didn't think the Switch would be accepted this fast," the Bandai Namco boss went on to say. In addition, he also noted that all of Bandai's properties may find their way into the Nintendo Switch.
