Bandai Namco is the latest publisher to announce its own digital storefront as the gaming industry continues to adapt to the lack of an E3 this summer as well as the coronavirus pandemic. Entitled Play Anime Live, this livestream will feature news and trailers for the publisher’s range of upcoming games on consoles, PCs and mobiles.
Given the title of the presentation, we expect Play Anime Live to focus on Bandai Namco’s licensed titles and the likes of the PlayStation 5 Scarlet Nexus game. Basically what we’re trying to tell you is that you shouldn’t expect Elden Ring to make an appearance at this event. With Microsoft who seems to have the marketing rights for the next game from From Software, it seems too small for the next project of Hidetaka Miyazaki. Play Anime Live will be broadcast on all the usual platforms on Wednesday July 22 at 4 p.m. PT / 7 p.m. ET. For those based in the UK, it will be a livestream which will start at midnight. We’re all used to it now, right?
