Bandai Namco didn’t have the biggest presence at Summer Game Fest or Xbox Games Showcase, but it’s announced a new panel for Anime Expo 2024. The Summer Showcase panel will take place on July 5th at 5:30 PM PT, with the publisher stating it to be “heavy with announcements, reveals, and first looks at anticipated anime games.”

Lasting until 6:50 PM PDT, the presentation is panel-style and features the “top anime game makers from Japan.” Franchises like Dragon Ball, Gundam and Sword Art Online will receive news and updates, while attendees can play Dragon Ball: Sparking! ZERO, Sword Art Online: Fractured Daydream, and Gundam Breaker 4 at the publisher’s booths. At the very least, Dragon Ball fans can expect new gameplay from Sparking! ZERO, which launches on October 11th.

It remains to be seen if Ace Combat 8, rumored to be Bandai Namco’s next “large-scale project”, is revealed. Developed alongside ORCA and ILCA, the sequel runs on Unreal Engine 5. Since it’s technically not from an anime game maker, there likely won’t be an announcement, but here’s hoping. Stay tuned for updates in the meantime.
