Namco Bandai countdown for RPG has me hoping Xenosaga

Xenosaga. Fu*k you if you don’t like Xenosaga. I feel that strongly about it. The Xeno series is, hands down, my favorite RPG series ever, with Xenogears being my favorite game ever. Ever. Charge me with being a series fanboy. Go ahead. I don’t give two sh*ts if you…

Well, I’m getting ahead of myself here. There’s a new countdown (yes, again) on the Japanese Namco Bandai site. It reads “ano RPG kaettekuru” which means “that RPG returns” for those that don’t get down with the moonspeak. This fades away and shows another screen that basically says that the announcement of this “new work RPG” will be made in four days.

I have no basis for a Xenosaga game guess. The hexagon-ish sparkly dot things in the background look futuristic enough, but I think my hope for the game is clouding my judgement. It could just as easily be anything else. We haven’t played a new Baiten Kaitos in awhile. Maybe that?

Wait. Screw that card crap. I want another Xenosaga. Anything else is unacceptable, Namco Bandai.
