New Game+ Expo Livestream Brings 7 Hours of New Game Reveals
We've seen a number of events crop up in the E3 2020 cancellation vacuum, like the Summer Game Fest, and the most recent one is New Game+ Expo (NGPX). It's a collaboration between 14 Japanese and North American publishers, including SEGA, NISA America, and WayForward, resulting in a seven-hour livestream of announcements, interviews, and demos.
New Game+ Expo takes place June 23 via Twitch. It'll kick off with a one-hour introduction showcase at 8 a.m. PST/11 a.m. EST, and then the full broadcast featuring first-looks at new games runs from 9 a.m. PST/12 p.m. EST through 4 p.m. PST/7 p.m. PST.
Here's the full list of participating publishers:
- AKSYS Games
- Arc System Works
- Gung Ho America
- Idea Factory International
- Inti Creates
- Koei Tecmo America
- NIS America
- SEGA of America
- Spike Chunsoft
Ian Curran, SEGA of America's Chief Operating Officer and President, said the difficulties COVID-19 posed also provided the chance to make something new with NGPX:
COVID-19 has brought with it many challenges, but also an opportunity to come together as a bold collective of publishers. SEGA is delighted to announce its participation in New Game+Expo, a new digital tentpole summer event of 14 publishers, joining forces to create a one-of-a-kind showcase event that unifies a special slice of the video game industry.
SEGA looks forward to joining with our friends...to bring all our fans more excitement and entertainment as we move into a busy digital show season!
It's not yet clear what each publisher might show off, though we suspect Natsume's plans probably include the recently announced Harvest Moon: One World. Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more New Game+ Expo news as it develops.
