Bandai Namco Showcases Games Playable at ESGS 2016


Electronic Sports and Gaming Summit, the biggest local gaming event of the year, announces the games Bandai Namco Entertainment have in store for us at ESGS 2016, happening October 28 to the 30th.

From Dark Souls to Dragon Ball Z, Bandai Namco Entertainment is well known for publishing some of the most beloved games and game franchises of the gaming industry.


The Official Electronic Sports and Gaming Summit event page on Facebook just announced that Bandai Namco will be showcasing Little Nightmares, Tekken 7, and Sword Art Online at the SMX Convention Center for ESGS 2016. All three will be playable at their booth for the entirety of the event.


Little Nightmares


Immerse yourself in Little Nightmares, a dark whimsical tale that will confront you with your childhood fears as you help Six escape The Maw. Little Nightmares is a puzzle-platformer developed by Tarsier Studios and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. This one peeked my interests as I’m sure it did yours, and if your a PlayStation gamer and this feels familiar to you, that’s because the developers worked with Media Molecule on Little Big Planet and Tearaway.


Tekken 7


Tekken 7 is the latest installment of Bandai Namco’s  venerable fighting game franchise. It’s the ninth in the series and is also the first to be powered by the award-winning Unreal Engine 4. This one is obviously one of the most highly anticipated games here in the PH so to finally be able to play a demo for Tekken 7 is a good enough reason to check out their booth. I for one, can’t wait to see how Dragunov plays in this one.


Sword Art Online – Hollow Realization - 


Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization is an upcoming game developed by Aquria and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita, based on the hit Japanese light novel series, Sword Art Online. It is the fourth game in the series and the successor to Sword Art Online: Lost Song. By the time ESGS 2016 kicks off, this game would’ve made it to the shelves, but if you weren’t yet sure about picking this one up, you can try your hand at it at Bandai Namco’s booth before you make a decision.


You can try your hand at all three games at Bandai Namco’s booth at ESGS. Other big names like Sony and Ubisoft will also have their own game showcases and demo’s available, so if all this strikes your fancy, consider dropping at ESGS this weekend! You won’t regret it.
