Bandai Namco is now the publisher.
Necropolis, the new game from the developers of Shadowrun Hong Kong, will no longer be launching on March 17 as it was originally going to- instead, the launch has been delayed to this Summer. That’s not all- versions of the game for the PS4 and Xbox One were also announced, as was Bandai Namco’s new involvement as the publisher of the game.
“Simply put, we were impressed and excited when we discovered Necropolis at PAX East,” said Eric Hartness, the vice president of marketing at Bandai Namco Entertainment America, in a statement. “Blending a skill-based 3D action game with a roguelike means it’s never the same experience twice. Necropolis’ off-kilter humor and unique visuals add perfectly to the mix, making it the perfect companion game for Dark Souls fans and a great addition to our game portfolio.”
Honestly, I really am not too mad at this delay- it makes sense, since now the game will get far more financial backing than it would have before, as well as a wider audience. I just hope there aren’t very many delays after this.
