Bandai Namco Teases New Title With "Prepare to Dine" Tagline

Bandai Namco Teases New Title With "Prepare to Dine" Tagline

Bandai Namco is offering a first glimpse at a new game, and its tagline sounds eerily similar to Dark Souls'.

Bandai Namco is planning to announce a brand new game next week on April 20. Although there's no word on what the game is, what genre it falls in, or who is developing it, the publisher is showing off a stylized animated teaser trailer with an interesting tagline.

"Prepare to Dine," it says. That sounds strangely reminiscent of Dark Souls' "Prepare to Die" tagline. Of course, we don't know that this is a From Software title, it certainly seems like Bandai Namco wants people to think it is. From Software president Hidetaka Miyazaki has previously said that he wouldn't opposed to working on a "Dark Souls-like game or a dark fantasy game." That said, the final DLC for Dark Souls 3 just launched at the end of March, so it seems awfully fast to be teasing a new From Software project.

We'll find out for sure just what it is next week, but for now Bandai Namco is only saying "Enjoy this original animation inspired by a new title in development by Bandai Namco Entertainment." Maybe it's a Dark Souls-inspired Cooking Mama sequel. "Praise the bun," indeed.

We'll let you know on April 20.

Clearly the girl has pointy teeth and blood flowing down her cheek and she's licking it suggestively...which means Vampire game. Vampires! Not cooking mama. You dine on people.

I wonder if the cooking mama reference was a joke lol.

It was both a joke and kind of a wish, too.

dark souls cannibal edition is my guess

Its a Smough spin-off game. Like Pac-Man but with hollows instead of dots, and Ornstein as the power pellet.

Praise the pun!

Is this the gritty Pac-Man reboot we've all been waiting for?

Well, not much to say about the project at this point.
The promotional art looks great though, love the style. Reminds me a lot of "slyvanie", http://slyvanie.deviantart.com/

Looks pretty neat.

Maybe she's a traveling chef and she has to fight to get ingredients for her vampire friend's dinner party.

Maybe.

Color me intrigued though.

Can we have more games with this sort of art direction please? This is so gorgeous o3o

What if that tagline was actually supposed to be a teaser for a Pac-Man DLC for Dark Souls 3?

So Dark Souls with vampires then?

OK, fan of the style I will say so far as well.

So anyone playing The Ringed City will know the locust priests have a habit of reciting "Fear not the dark, and let the feast begin."

So clearly, it must be a standalone spinoff sequel to a DLC made using cut content.

Calling it now, it's pretty obviously God Eater 3.

Namco should license the Kingdom Death universe and hand it to From Software.

That could reduce the withdrawl symptoms Souls fans will suffer in the near future.

Wow. That looks gorgeous! Excited to see what this will turn into. :D
Also, I enjoy it when a game knows it's silly and isn't ashamed of it. "Prepare to dine" indeed.

Wasn't Bloodbourne kinda-sorta about Vampires? I mean, this looks like a sequel to me.

I'll be honest, the art alone intruiges me. We'll see if the game itself will.
