New Game+ Expo Announced for June with Japanese Game Focus

With the impact of COVID-19 continuing to cause a disruption across the world, including the cancellation of various events, a newly formed digital only event, known as New Game+ Expo, has been announced; with the event providing a way for western publishers of Japanese games to speak up about their upcoming projects.

“New Game+ Expo is a grassroots coalition of publishers and developers,” said Adam Johnson, producer of NGPX. “Organizing together for the first time, we hope fans have fun as we take a look at the combined upcoming lineup of games for 2020 and beyond!”
