Bandai Namco will be holding an online show to make up for the lack of announcements and reveals, called Play Anime Live.

The world has been hit hard by the coronavirus, leading to the cancelation and postponement of numerous tournaments and events across the globe. It’s disrupted the development and release of multiple games, with even DLC for games like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate being delayed.

It appears Bandai Namco will be holding an online show to make up for the lack of announcements and reveals, called Play Anime Live. Until now, summer has been stacked with game releases, conventions, and events, but with the cancelation of platforms like E3, many developers and organizations have pivoted to hosting or joining online events instead.

The name suggests it will focus on games with anime licenses, aesthetics, and other related content from the company. Very little information was shared about the event, but its refreshing to know that Dragon Ball FighterZ ticks the anime box and then some. As there’s no confirmation that the game will be present in the stream, we can only speculate for now, but with its late July date, there’s still some time for Bandai Namco to prepare a new presentation for fans.

Dragon Ball FighterZ

Next DLC character?

The last character revealed for the game was Ultra Instinct Goku, and that was a couple of months back. The silver-haired Saiyan joined the game’s roster over a month ago, so it’s safe to say we’re due some sort of inkling regarding who the next DLC character will be.

The developer also recently apologized for the absence of any tournament news for the game. In the statement, Bandai Namco revealed that an online tournament for the game was supposed to be announced in June, but due to unforeseen delays, they weren’t able to do so. Play Anime Live would be the perfect opportunity for them to share tournament details as well.

Play Anime Live brings a sliver of hope that we could be getting a few announcements and reveals for Dragon Ball FighterZ before August, however, it’s too soon to celebrate. Confirmation may or may not arrive before the event, and there’s also the possibility that the stream won’t feature any Dragon Ball FighterZ news either. Whatever the case, the prospect brings some much-needed excitement back into the game’s scene.

Play Anime Live will be streamed on FacebookYouTube, and Twitch on July 22 at 4:00 p.m. PT (7:00 p.m. ET).
