Tokyo Game Show 2022 is kicking off on September 15, and a number of major companies have confirmed that they’ll be attending, including the likes of Capcom, Xbox, Square Enix, Koei Tecmo, and even Konami. Another company that will have new things to show at the event is Bandai Namco.
The Japanese publisher recently provided details on its schedule for Tokyo Game Show 2022, with a number of panels and streams set across multiple days. Interestingly, the final slot of the final day in Bandai Namco’s schedule (which is September 18) is dedicated to what one would assume is a new, unannounced game, with the publisher attributing it only to “???”.
The question, of course, is- what is Bandai Namco planning on announcing? As always, we turn to rumours and unconfirmed reports here. The game that comes to mind first is Armored Core 6, which has been leaked and is allegedly in development at FromSoftware.
A new Ace Combat game is also in development at Project Aces and ILCA, but it’s unknown how far along in development that is. Previously job listings have also suggested that Bandai Namco is developing a remaster for a Nintendo title, which recent reports have suggested is a Nintendo Switch remaster of Kid Icarus: Uprising (though Nintendo will likely to want to announce that itself, possibly at the rumoured upcoming Nintendo Direct).
Of course, there’s no shortage of people who’ll be desperate for Elden Ring to get DLC.
Either way, we’ll be keeping an eye out for new details, so stay tuned for more updates.
