Near Field Communication in consoles sparks up the interest of Bandai Namco, first exploited by Skylanders,which sparked the toymaker and game developer to adopt the technology for its new Kamen Rider Game.
A Kamen Rider meets Skylanders mashup, Namco Bandai’s new title to its Masked Superhero franchise will be set to release this year and will follow the format that enticed Skylanders fans. The game will come and will be played together with a partner figure and chip sets which will help in bringing up characters in-game via a launching pod.
The figurines and the chip sets will not only add to the beauty of the gameplay but will also boost up player statistics, and support or power up characters. Together with the Figurine/Chip-to-game-Link up, an Ability link system will also be featured in the game that allows players to combo up attacks. Different sets of Chips, Figures and abilities will be sold, allowing players to customize their gameplay and take control on how they give boosts to their characters.
Kamen Rider Summonride is set to be released this coming January 2015 on the PlayStation 3 and Wii U, and this will be one of the Japanese games next to Nintendo that will use the Skylanders concept.
