Namco Super Wars is a tactical role-playing game developed by Namco and published by Bandai for the WonderSwan Color. It is a crossover game, featuring characters from several classic Namco titles.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The game is played on a square grid, on which both the player's and computer's units are placed. Each side takes turns moving and making actions with their units. Every character has a variety of attacks and special moves that can be selected when performing an action. Some of these consume Spirit Points, which slowly regenerate each turn. The game is divided into stages. Between each stage, the player is able to visit a shop and prepare his units before starting the next stage. Unlike most RPGs, characters do not gain levels for directly defeating opponents. Instead, completion of a map will reward the players with a number of level ups, which they can then distribute among their units as they wish.

Characters[edit | edit source]

As a crossover game, Namco Super Wars includes characters from a number of previous Namco games. The games represented are the following.

Legacy[edit | edit source]

Although no sequel was ever planned, a later crossover game, Namco X Capcom was another tactical role playing game that used many of the same characters.
