Shueisha – the good people behind the great manga series of Naruto, Bleach, and One Piece – have recently announced preliminary details in regards to Jump Festa 2012! The annual expo focusing on anime/manga/gaming is scheduled to take place December 17 and 18, 2011 in Makuhari Messe, the same venue as the 2011 Tokyo Game Show. There have been many interesting revelations at Jump Festa in the past, including the debut of a Naruto anime special and the first official announcement of Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2.
We at Anime Games Online are extremely excited this year for it as Namco Bandai Games is expected to make their triumphant presence felt at the expo! Honestly, we have no idea what Namco Bandai Games will be showing at Jump Festa 2012 at the moment, but we still have high hopes for something spectacular. After all, they have developers CyberConnect2 and Tecmo Koei Omega Force working on these games called Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations and One Piece: Kaizoku Musou – both of which are expected for a 2012 release.
There will be a host of other companies at the event including Nintendo, Sony, Sega, Capcom, The Pokemon Company, and Square-Enix. The total count as of today is 27 exhibitors. We’re sure Jump Festa 2012 will play host to a plethora of exciting announcements. Stay tuned to Anime Games Online as we hope to bring you as much Naruto, Dragon Ball Z, One Piece, and Bleach coverage as possible!
