The Japan Fighting Game Publishers Roundtable, an event by fighting game developers and publishers as a way to interact with the community and provide new updates on ongoing projects, will be coming back for 2022 as well. The event has been scheduled for later this month, on March 21 (via Game Watch).
This year’s show will see the participating developers sit down to talk about various themes related to fighting games and the current esports scene. Additionally, the show has planned to organize what is called a “treasure appraisal project”, where each company will showcase their treasured collections related to fighting games.
The list of developers attending the show includes General Director of Guilty Gear series, Daisuke Ishiwatari alongside director of Guilty Gear Strive, Akira Katano; the President and CEO of Arika, Akira Nishitani; the Chief Producer of King of Fighters 15, Yasayuki Oda; The producer of Street Fighter 5, Shuhei Matsumoto; Chief Producer of SEGA’s Virtua Fighter eSports, Seiji Aoki; and Chief Producer of Tekken Katsuhiro Harada.
Even though no news of any games revealed by either of the company has been confirmed or teased until now, past shows did have reveals in the form of new characters and seasons for several games, so here’s hoping new reveals await in this year’s show as well.
