Bandai Namco Play Anime Broadcast 06 30 20

Bandai Namco is the latest publisher to announce its own digital showcase as the gaming industry continues to adjust to the lack of an E3 this summer as well as the coronavirus pandemic. Titled Play Anime Live, this livestream will feature news and trailers for the publisher's line-up of upcoming games on consoles, PC, and mobile.

Given the title of the presentation, we would expect Play Anime Live to focus on Bandai Namco's licensed titles and the likes of PlayStation 5 game Scarlet Nexus. Basically, what we're trying to tell you is that you shouldn't expect Elden Ring to put in an appearance at this event. With Microsoft appearing to have marketing rights to From Software's next game, this feels like too small of a stage for Hidetaka Miyazaki's next project. Play Anime Live will be stream across all the usual platforms on Wednesday 22nd July at 4pm PT / 7pm ET. For those based in the UK, this will be a livestream which kicks off at midnight. We're all used to it by now though, right?
