Namco Bandai Cancels Aero-Cross

By Jonathan Barnes, 4 years ago
Dearly Beloved, we have gathered here today to wish a fond farewell to a game we may not have known well, or known at all, but one that requires us to take note of its passing.

Aero-Cross may not have been the biggest endeavor or the brightest or the most-beloved or the most well-known, but it was an endeavor by Namco Bandai. Originally intended to be a re-imagining of the 1985 Namco arcade cult-classic, Metro-Cross, and the third game in the company’s “Namco Generations” project (other titles included Galaga Legions DX and http://www.trueachievements.com/PACMAN-CE-DX/achievemen....htm), the development fell on hard times due to "various reasons" and has been sent to that glorious digital farm upstate with Star Wars: Battlefront 3 and NBA Live 13.

We leave you with this final homage to Aero-Cross's life... its initial trailer.



I'll miss your dynamic running action.
