Operation Backlog Completion 2024
Jun 262023

We’ve just gone through several showcases with exciting announcements, but even more news could come from Anime Expo, which runs from July 1-4 this year.

Last year, Aksys and Spike Chunsoft had some fantastic surprises at their panels.

This year, Idea Factory has all but stated outright that they’ll announce a new otome localization at Anime Expo. (Probably just one, but I can’t help but hope for at least two.)

Atlus will also be present, with panels on Persona 5 Tactica and Persona 3 Reload, as well as a Shin Megami Tensei panel described on the schedule as including “a glimpse into the future,” although with P5T, P3R, and Metaphor all on the table, I’d be surprised if they announce a new SMT game on top of those. RGG Studio has a Like a Dragon panel as well, so perhaps we’ll learn a few more details about Gaiden and Infinite Wealth.

Meanwhile, Bandai Namco has announced that its Anime Expo showcase will not only feature their upcoming games (like Baten Kaitos), but also “exciting announcements and game reveals.”

(Is the time right for a new Tales announcement?)

I’m looking forward to seeing what might be announced at Anime Expo. Here’s hoping some of these panels will be streamed, or at least shared by helpful audience members again. What do you think will be announced at these Anime Expo panels?
