Tekken 7 and SoulCalibur VI won’t be at Bandai Namco’s Fun Live event ⚡⚡⚡ Esports news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!

Yesterday Bandai Namco Southeast Asia's Twitter account announced a new event called Bandai Namco Entertainment Fun Live, which is an online event that will provide fans with more information regarding some of its games.

While the announcement didn't specify which games, fans soon discovered a schedule for the event on Bandai Namco's Taiwan website. Numerous titles appear to be in the lineup, but a couple of Bandai Namco's popular fighting games are missing in action. This news was met with much disappointment online, but some fans are still hopeful that the company will be able to squeeze in an announcement or two.

Both Tekken 7 and SoulCalibur VI have been due new content reveals for some time now. In the case of the latter, the latest DLC character Haohmaru, was released on March 31 but was first announced in August last year during EVO 2019. Two characters remain unannounced for the game's second Season Pass.

As for Tekken 7, the last character added was Fahkumram, who arrived on March 24. While the Muay Thai fighter did mark the end of Season Pass 3, the series' producer Michael Murray made a statement about Tekken 7 content after the cancelation of EVO Online 2020. On Reddit, he revealed that Bandai Namco did have plans to announce something during the event. Although we don't know what the news is, Tekken 7 seems to have more to share with fans.

All hope is not lost, though, as Bandai Namco did previously announce another event named Play Anime Live early in the month. It also happens to take place during the same period as Fun Live, so there's the possibility they could have similar content, but that's unlikely. It might be a bit of a stretch, but as the name emphasizes anime, the chances of SoulCalibur VI and Tekken 7 announcements arriving with Play Anime Live seem to be better than Fun Live.

Bandai Namco Entertainment Fun Live will take place from July 17–24, while Play Anime Live is scheduled to hold on July 22.
