Namco Bandai Shares AM Show Lineup
Gundam Extreme VS and four player Pac-Man lead the way at upcoming arcade event.
Namco Bandai's lineup for the upcoming Amusement Machine Show doesn't have as many surprises as Sega's, but at least two of the attractions could pack in the crowds.
Gundam Extreme VS will lead the way in the company's booth later this week. The game will make its trade show playable debut, although it has previously appeared on location test.
As detailed at the company's lineup page, Extreme VS will be joined by the following games:
- Pac-Man Battle Royal
