Yea true but they also played it very safe. Tried and true franchises with little change over previous versions. Not that it's bad I just think this article means some risks are about to be taken

True, I think they played it very safe by banking on mostly well-established franchises. I would be curious to see what unique games they can come up with.

Bandai own some of the best IPs out there they just need to experiment with them.
They should really consider handing Power Rangers,One piece or Saint Seiya over to Arc systems and let them develop some fighting games with those properties.
I would like to see them let Koei tecmo do a Power Rangers Dynasty warriors type of game.

When you think of all the IPs Namco have at their disposal and the long list of fighters Arc Sys have too, it's just crying out for a Namco vs Arc Sys fighter at some point in the future especially after how successful DBFZ has been.

I really hope that they will make PSVR (and maybe other headsets) port of that new House of the dead from arcades
