Bandai to support Nintendo Revolution?

Bandai, the owner of popular gaming franchises Gundam, Digimon and .hack, has announced plans to produce games for the Nintendo Revolution, according to a report on Japanese website FujiSankei Business.

The news means that fellow Japanese giant Namco is also likely to support the Revolution, since the two companies are set to merge this September. Together they will form NamcoBandai Holdings, which will be the third largest games company in Japan.

Nintendo had not confirmed the report at the time of writing. The company has previously stated that "strong third-party support" for the Revolution is expected along with exclusive content from "key second-party developers." Square-Enix is already hard at work on a WiFi-enabled version of Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicle.

Neither Bandai or Namco were available for comment.
