Ridge Racer 8 and an exclusive FPS

Bandai Namco is reportedly working on an exclusive FPS for the Nintendo Switch along witha new Ridge Racer game.

A developer at the Singapore studio posted details on their LinkedIn page stating that they were working on an “Unannounced IP (First Person Shooter/Adventure Exclusive to the Nintendo Switch).” As well as claiming to be working on Ridge Racer 8, “a drift-based high speed car racing [game] exclusive to the Nintendo Switch.” (Thanks to GameSpot for the notice).

Bandai Namco is currently most famous for their Dragon Ball Z games including the recent FighterZ, as well as the Dark Souls series. The publisher has not commented on the claims, but the Singapore studio currently lists vacancies for developers with experience on AAA titles.

Bandai Namco has recently shown more interest in the Switch, revealing Dark Souls Remastered as an upcoming title and, speaking with the Wall Street Journal, said they were surprised at just how popular the Switch has been.
