Capcom and Namco unite on Mario Party crane game

Straight out of the bowels of Japan comes another UFO catcher that Dale, Colette, and I will be sure to rock the sh*t out of at Tokyo Game Show: Mario Party Fushigi no Korokoro Catcher. Namco Bandai’s doing all the construction work on the machines, while Capcom did all the designing for the game. The machines will be launching in Fall of 2009, so be ready for it.

The takeaway message from this announcement, though, is that Capcom and Namco Bandai are using this as a test to see where they can start developing new business together in the arcade area. Perhaps a Dead Rising lightgun game could be in the future. Who knows?
