Bandai Namco Will Announce A New IP for a Western Audience at Gamescom 2016; Tekken 7 & Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 To Be Playable
Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe announced today their plans for Gamescom 2016, where attendees may find the booth at B20 in Hall 8.
Tekken 7 and Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 will both be playable for the public. Visitors can also take part varied stage events such as competitions, tournaments, signing sessions and lotteries. As usual attendants will get exclusive insights into Bandai Namco's games with interviews and presentations.
Hervé Hoerdt, Vice President of IP Strategy, Marketing & PR at Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe, said:
This year, again the world’s largest gaming fair will be home to hundreds of thousands gaming fans who gather in Cologne. We are bringing 3 very interesting projects this year. We are particularly pleased to be able to fulfill the desires of fighting game fans as they get the chance to experience the most impressive TEKKEN-game to date through near photo-realistic graphics with TEKKEN 7. We’re also showing off DRAGON BALL XENOVERSE 2 which with all its new features is anticipated to be one of our biggest games to date! Lastly, we will reveal a brand new project and we are very excited!
That's right, because the press release also anticipates that a new IP published by Bandai Namco for a Western audience will be revealed at Gamescom 2016. While this project is still a mystery, we know a lot about the other two.
Tekken 7: Fated Retribution has been announced for an early 2017 release on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and you can find our first impressions from E3 2016 here. Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, on the other hand, will be available for the same platforms on October 25 in North America and October 28 in Europe.
Stay tuned to get all the latest updates from Gamescom 2016, where we'll have a full crew on site.
