Tomorrow, March 4th at 5 pm, the New Game + Expo 2021 will take place. If you want to be there live, you have to tune in to Twitch. Later the streams and videos will also be published on YouTube. Last year, the digital event was launched in particular because of the failed E3, so now you are going ahead and starting in spring.
The New Game + Expo was one of the more successful events last summer. There was a lot there, especially for fans of Japanese games. Among other things, the localization of Ys IX: Monstrum Nox was announced and Neptunia Virtual Stars received the first English trailer. Just to pick out two highlights. That of course increases the expectations for tomorrow’s new edition. Even if not that many publishers are on board anymore.
Specifically, this time Aksys Games, Arc System Works, GungHo Online Entertainment America, Idea Factory International, Inti Creates, Koei Tecmo, Natsume, NIS America, Playism and PM Studios will be there. Aksys Games, Inti Creates, Playism and PM Studios promise new announcements. There is talk of exciting updates at GungHo Online Entertainment America, Idea Factory International, Koei Tecmo and Natsume. Announced as special guests are Suda51 (CEO of Grasshopper Manufacture and Director of the No More Heroes series), Akira Katano (Director of Guilty Gear -Strive-) and Sohei Niikawa (President of Nippon Ichi Software and producer of the Disgaea series) .
After the approximately one-hour New Game + Expo 2021, further segments of the individual publishers will continue, whereby the announcements will probably be deepened. So it can be worthwhile to stay tuned here as well. The detailed streaming plan:
