Namco Bandai and Good Smile Company have joined forces to bring the popular Nendoroid toys to the PSP in Japan. There’s no specific release date or pricing available just yet, however, in a recent interview with Famitsu, Good Smile Company CEO Takanori Aki said they plan to include one to three characters from more than 10 different titles!
Nendoroid Generation is the name of the new game that will see the Nendoroids attending none other than Nendo High School. The game will be a single-player RPG in which players assemble a party of characters to do battle. Though details on the actual battle system are still scarce, we do know players can utilize chain combos and group attacks based on which characters are being used. Another interesting tidbit uncovered was a “Dance Mode” supposedly designed with fans of the original toy line in mind. They have also included the ability to interact with Nendoroids, with players able to do things like “pet” them.
Famitsu got a list of some of the characters that will be appearing in Nendoroid Generation which you can see below. Obviously it’s not a list of every character, but it’s a nice look at what’s in store.
