Brighton, UK, 24th July 2012: Eurogamer Expo, the UK's biggest and best gaming festival, is pleased to announce that NAMCO BANDAI Partners’ titles Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch will both be playable at this year's show.
The Eurogamer Expo will be returning to London's Earls Court from 27th-30th September 2012 and is expected to welcome over 50,000 gamers.
Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is the highly-anticipated sequel to 2000's legendary Tekken Tag Tournament, and is heading to home consoles with all the action seen from the arcades along with unique content and features that won't be seen anywhere else.
Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is a unique fantasy RPG developed by Level-5, the studio behind Dragon Quest VIII and IX and the Professor Layton series. The game features animations produced and cut-scenes supervised by the legendary Japanese animation company, Studio Ghibli.
"Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and Ni no Kuni are two very special and very different games that exemplify the range of experiences available at this year's Eurogamer Expo," said Eurogamer Operations Director Tom Bramwell. "Whatever you're looking forward to, it's on the show floor. It's going to be a real honour having Ni no Kuni available to sample - assuming people can get me off it."
"We are very excited to be showcasing two exciting titles from our line-up for 2012/2013," said Namco Bandai Partners UK Director of Marketing & PR Lee Kirton. "Tekken Tag Tournament brings some incredible new gameplay styles for the franchise with brand new modes, an incredible roster of characters and the most involved and detailed training mode ever created for the genre. Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is one of the most beautiful games we've ever had the pleasure of working with. It's already causing quite a stir within the gaming world with its blend of superb gameplay from Level-5 and incredible animations produced and supervised by legendary Japanese animation company, Studio Ghibli. It's exciting that we can have both games hands on at the Expo."
The Eurogamer Expo takes place 27th-30th September 2012 at Earls Court, London, and promises more playable games than ever (including a large number of UK first-plays), our highest-profile developer session schedule, as well as a number of satellite events including the Games Industry Fair.
