Namco Bandai plans to release a pair of next-gen Gundam games before the end of the year, and also has a sizable handheld line-up and PS2 RPG onslaught planned this side of Christmas.

The company's 2006 schedule for the USA, released yesterday, puts both Mobile Suit Gundam (PS3) and Mobile Ops: The One Year War (X360) on store shelves this year, while the company's ambition to break into the PC will stand its first real test with the release of Warhammer: Mark of Chaos in October.

Hellgate: London - another big-hitting PC title from Bill Roper's Flagship Studios - is still listed as TBD. RPG fans would be better served looking to the PS2, it seems, where XenoSaga Episode III: Also sprach Zarathustra is on for August 29th, with .hack/G.U. Vol.1: Rebirth and Tales of the Abyss both set for autumn.

Namco Bandai also plans to hit PSP harder than DS - the former will see Ace Combat X: Skies of Deception, Bounty Hounds and Gunpey this autumn, while the DS has just its own version of Gunpey and Mage Knight: Destiny's Soldier to look forward to.

Elsewhere the company has plenty of One Piece, Pac-Man spin-off and Peanuts-licensed titles, like Snoopy vs. The Red Baron, planned across PS2, PSP, PC and even Cube, but there's absolutely nothing on there about Xbox 1.

What about Tales of the Tempest for the DS?
What about Tales of the World for the PSP?
What about Tales of Destiny 2 for the PSP?
What about Tales of Phantasia for the PSP?

All four of these were recently announced! Why do they keep all the good stuff to themselfes, those Japanese?
