Bandai Namco Entertainment of Europe has revealed their lineup for the always promising Gamescom in Germany. Their show will consist of Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, Tekken 7, and a brand new, unreleased IP for western audiences. Pure PlayStation has written a few, recent articles about the new Dragon Ball game and we can’t wait for more time hopping adventures. Tekken 7 is expected to release for the PS4 early 2017 but the latest news happened at yesterday’s EVO Championship. Right before the fighting finals, Bandai Namco released two character reveal trailers. One was for everyone’s favorite big man, Bob, and the other was a new contender, Master Raven, who is the boss of (normal) Raven.
No information was given about the new IP though. We’ve contacted Bandai Namco with further questions and will report if we get anything substantial. You can pre-order both titles here and here. Vice President of IP Strategy at BNEE had this to say.
”This year, again the world’s largest gaming fair will be home to hundreds of thousands gaming fans who gather in Cologne. We are bringing 3 very interesting projects this year. We are particularly pleased to be able to fulfill the desires of fighting game fans as they get the chance to experience the most impressive TEKKEN-game to date through near photo-realistic graphics with TEKKEN 7. We’re also showing off DRAGON BALL XENOVERSE 2 which with all its new features is anticipated to be one of our biggest games to date! Lastly, we will reveal a brand new project and we are very excited!”
