Today Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe announced its games lineup for Gamescom 2018.

The publisher’s booth (Hall 6 – B 41) will include “no less than eleven” playable titles, of which eight have been disclosed today via press release.

Attendees will be able to enjoy the following:

  • Jump Force
  • SoulCalibur VI
  • Dragon Ball FighterZ for Nintendo Switch
  • One Piece: World Seeker
  • Code Vein
  • Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown
  • My Hero One’s Justice
  • Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker

Apparently, three games are not listed in the press release, but a comment from Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe Vice President of Marketing and Digital Hervé Hoerdt includes a hint, mentioning that a new co-publishing project “that fans will be very excited about” will be announced at the show.

While the press release does not mention it, considering what was mentioned by Producer Kazutoki Kono just before E3, I would be surprised if we didn’t get the announcement of the release date of Ace Combat 7. Of course, keep in mind that this is just my speculation based on an interview, so take it with the customary grain of salt.

Gamescom will be held in Cologne, Germany from August 21st to August 25th. Of course, DualShockers will be on the show floor ready to report on all the news and get our hands on all the game, so stay tuned for a lot of coverage right here.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
