Bandai Namco Announces Play Anime Live Stream, Featuring Anime Games

Bandai Namco has announced a new event for anime fans, and it’ll focus on their upcoming slate of games that are anime focused. The event, called Play Anime Live, hasn’t announced the games it will focus on yet.

The stream will begin on July 22 at 4 PM PT–that’s a Wednesday. It’s not yet clear how long the event will run for.

Bandai Namco publishes many anime games, including games based on Dragon Ball and Naruto. It’s been a while since we’ve seen a new Naruto game, and the Dragon Ball FighterZ Fighters Pass 3 currently has several unannounced fighters, so we could see news about these series (although nothing has been confirmed).

It also seems likely that we’ll see something from Scarlet Nexus, an upcoming RPG that’s coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X, along with current-gen systems. Other upcoming anime-themed games coming from Namco Bandai include Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions, One Piece: Grand Cruise, Tales of Arise, and Digimon Survive.

You can sign up for the event now, which will put you in the running to win a “VIP box” prize containing $75 worth of anime-themed swag.
