Namco Bandai had a pretty big week last week, after announcing that they'd be publishing Dark Souls, the spiritual successor to Demon's Souls, alongside a new Ridge Racer, Ace Combat and Armored Core. Oh, and the announcement of Tales of Graces f being localised in North America.

However, according to Lee Kirton, the marketing director at Namco Bandai UK, there's still a lot more to come from the publisher later this year.

"We have other key events throughout 2011 with even more new announcements to come. We have invested significantly in development with our ambition to grow and be a major player in the Western sector."

He went on to say: "We have classic franchises which remain faithful to the IP as well as some titles that will deliver exciting new game play mechanics to excite gamers today. We are also working to deliver new experiences and be innovative with leading titles in their genres."

It is great that Namco are planning to expand in the West, especially if they're going to try and remain faithful to their older IPs at the same time.
