I’m a big fan of Namco-Bandai, especially the Tales franchise.  With the Tokyo Game Show approaching at light speed, they’ve announced their lineup for the event.  It includes playable demos of some pretty big, upcoming titles like Tales of Graces, Tales of Vesperia (PS3), Tekken 6, Dragon Ball: Raging Blast and a Blue Dragon DS title.  Perhaps, by some cosmic miracle, they have something else up their sleeves, as well.  Only time will tell.  Hit the jump for the full playable demo and video trailer line-up.

Playable Demos:

  • Tekken 6 (360/PS3)
  • Gundam vs. Gundam Next Plus (PSP)
  • Super Robot Taisen Neo (Wii)
