Publisher Bandai Namco things the popularity of Elden Ring will contribute to greater success for the recently-released mech action game Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon. Speaking to GamesIndustry.biz, Bandai Namco Europe CEO Arnaud Muller said that Elden Ring made developer FromSoftware’s name a “guarantee of quality”.
“This is an opportunity for us to truly widen the audience of the Armored Core games,” Muller told GI.biz. “My ambitions are not on par with Elden Ring, but our ambitions are way bigger than the previous Armored Core games.
“Thanks to Elden Ring, FromSoftware has become a seal, a guarantee of quality, and therefore people will see that the Metacritic of this game is great, [that] it’s challenging but very rewarding, [and say] ‘I wanna try that game’.”
“This is a big step up in this franchise,” he added. “We are not going to be able to match Elden Ring numbers but we will way surpass what Armored Core previous games have done.
“We have a great game in our hands, the gameplay, the battle system is very loyal to what FromSoftware fans are used to, so we really want to take this IP further in the relationship with FromSoftware. My expectation is that people who have discovered [their] games via Elden Ring will enjoy Armored Core.”
