Today is a very happy day for us here at DS Fanboy. We had no idea that pandas on see-saws would be making their way to our country. Back when we saw the scans showing the Japanese game, we thought it was much too quirky and original to be released over here. Oh how glad we are to be wrong.
So, what is the game, exactly? National Geographic Panda and it will release this fall. The game has you interacting with panda bears at Panda Park. Mistreating the bears will cause them to leave your park, whereas nurturing them and making sure they're having fun means new pandas will come to your park and stay. Sounds great to us!
The other game Namco announced in the press release we received is Digimon World Championship. The new game will feature over 200 kinds of Digimon and will feature Wi-Fi support for battling online. Those of you familiar with the Digimon series of games should know what to expect here. No word on a release window for the game.
Check out our galleries below for screenshots of both these games.

Dammit, I thought from the headline it was a game pitting pandas against Digimon thingummies.

Sneezing Panda should get a talk show. I think it'd work.

You think Pokemon went crazy with the pokemans number. Wait till you see the thousands in Digimon. I consider the worst part is that the games never replicated the digivolutions in the cartoon. Pokemon anime at least mentioned Gym Leaders but the cartoons were either giant Tamagotchi's or were way out there.

Oh man I'm such a sucker for Digimon-anything. I'm playing Digimon World Dawn these days.
