Bandai Namco Partners With Marvel For Rise Of Incarnates Comic


With San Diego Comic Con right about to start, there’s a bit of a scramble to announce some of the cool freebies attendees can pick up at some of the booths within the nerd paradise. Thankfully, not all SDCC exclusives are that exclusive, as Bandai Namco Games Europes have just announced that they will be teaming up with Marvel for a comic book series based on their rising 2 v 2 Combat Arena game Rise of Incarnates.
The series will be 16 issues long, with the first two issues being available for free from the Bandai Namco booth at SDCC. They’ll also be available digitally via the Marvel’s Unlimited Comics App for iOS and Android AND in 2,500 Marvel associated stores across the globe.
Speaking about the deal, Jonathan Rheingold, Vice President of Marvel Custom Solutions stated “BANDAI NAMCO Games and Marvel working together was a no-brainer. Both companies hold to the highest standards of quality storytelling, artistic talent recruitment and character creation, so it was a natural connection for Marvel to offer its expertise to the legendary video game developer in packaging and distributing the comic book adaptation of Rise of Incarnates.” While Herve Hoerdt, Vice President of IP Strategy, Marketing & PR at BANDAI NAMCO Games Europe added “Rise of Incarnates is not only an ideal vehicle for dynamic and engaging fighting gameplay, it also possesses an enterprising storyline featuring a destitute world and compelling characters who have untold powers and widely varying motivations to do both good and evil. All of these ingredients come together to create an incredible action comic book series, and we are absolutely thrilled about this partnership with Marvel, as they are an undeniable powerhouse in the creation and distribution of comics.”
