Bandai Namco may be making a new horror game

Is Bandai Namco making their own P.T.?

Bandai Namco is mostly known for games like Tekken, Dragon Ball Z, and Naruto, but the publisher may be jumping into Capcom's backyard with a horror game.


The Japanese games-maker recently launched a site with the tab text of summer horror project, indicating the company is developing their own thriller/horror game. The website is cryptic and only gives a few clues. We see what appears to be a defunct apartment home being recorded by a lower-res camera, illuminated with a strange orange sun glow cast upon it. I personally get a very outdoors-y P.T. vibe from the image.

Apart from "domas," which could refer to the game's name or something else, we have a small teaser via the Twitter button: "Appears a mysterious site? Something happens this summer..." The footage's timestamp reads 8/30/2018 so it's possible we could get a reveal on August 30.

This tease follows Bandai Namco's new focus on creating fresh IPs for its release slate. It's very likely this "summer horror project" will be a new IP for the company as it gears up towards more wholly-owned franchises and titles.
