A security flaw on publisher Bandai Namco’s website has led to a major new E3 leak that reveals three new games: The rumoured From Software-George R.R. Martin collaboration, a new Tales game and Ni no Kuni remastered.

The leak came through a publicly available link on Bandai Namco’s website, per the website Gematsu (which has full descriptions of each game). Via various posters on ResetEra, the leaks are:

Elden Ring, for PS4, Xbox One and PC, a new game from the makers of Dark Souls and Sekiro in collaboration with Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin. Turns out all those rumours were indeed true.

A remastered version of the first Ni no Kuni. It looks as though a Switch version of the non-remastered version may be coming, though the remaster may not hit Xbox. The original info is a bit spotty — the platforms are unclear as of right now.

And Tales of Arise (pictured above), a new game in the long-running JRPG series, also for PC/Xbox/PS4.

What a disaster for Bandai Namco. Chances are high we’ll see all three of these games during Microsoft’s press conference on Monday morning. Exciting times all around.


  • That headline is complete gibberish unless you can parse all the proper nouns with prior knowledge in advance. Not helped by the all leading caps.

    • To be fair, the site has always operated under the pretense that our readers have some degree of advance knowledge; we’re writing for people who know about the gaming world and pop culture.

      • This is something I’ve complained about for years here. Title case reduces legibility, it’s been falling out of favour for a while now. None of the major news outlets use it any more, most tech sites (The Verge, CNET, Engadget), and most gaming sites (PCGamer, Gamespot, Polygon, Rock Paper Shotgun) all use sentence case.

        I appreciate the problem here is the US site uses title case and it’s not something that can be auto-converted when coming across, but they should be pressured to because there’s a clear better option when it comes to titles that feature proper nouns commonly and title case ain’t it.

        • I had to learn title case when joining the site — ABC and never used it — and it took me a little time to get accustomed to it, so I get what you mean.

          This is something we’ll probably have to have a long chat about in the next year — we’re looking at a site redesign/CMS upgrade/rewrite in the next 12 to 24 months because of limitations and expirations in the backend. So that’ll definitely be something we chat about for that, if not sooner. Thank you!

  • Why is this a disaster, ate these games rubbish? or not worth looking at?
    It was an unintentional leak (probably) I would hardly say it’s a disaster.

    • Its a disaster in the sense that they not longer have their big epic first reveal, now everyone knows already

    • From a marketing perspective it would definitely be viewed as a disaster, they put a lot of time and money in to this kinda thing.
      The reveal, the audience reaction, follow up interviews, social and traditional media buzz etc, everything meticulously planned to generate a controlled period of hype to capitalise on.

      I wouldn’t be surprised if somebodies head rolled for this, accidental or not.
