Bandai Namco Entertainment Asia took Thailand Game Show 2022 by storm as both its entertainment and toy divisions have come together to showcase a wide array of products for event participants.
Bandai Namco Entertainment Asia, along with BANDAI SPIRITS CO., LTD and Bandai Namco Asia Co., Ltd have come together to form an end to end showcase featuring key and upcoming game titles such as One Piece Odyssey, Doraemon Story of Seasons: Friends of the Great Kingdom, and Dragon Ball: The Breakers, to collectibles and action figures from Gunpla, Banpresto and Tamashii Nations.
“We were extremely excited to reconnect with our Thai fans in-person again once we heard that Thailand allowed the return of on-ground events — and so we were determined to make our mark at this year’s Thailand Game Show,” said Rainel Tan, General Manager, Sales & Marketing, Bandai Namco Entertainment Asia. “For the first time ever, together with BANDAI SPIRITS CO., LTD and Bandai Namco Asia Co., Ltd, we are proud to usher in this new era of entertainment post-pandemic and continue bringing fun to all.”
Visitors will be able to try out games like the recently launched Ace Angler: Fishing Spirits, Dragon Ball: The Breakers, Taiko no Tatsujin: Rhythm Festival, and Pac-Man World: Re-PAC. Game demos for upcoming titles such as One Piece Odyssey and Doraemon Story of Seasons: Friends of the Great Kingdom are also available for the eager fans.
Game Producers Koji Nakajima (Doraemon) and Katsuaki Tsuzuki (One Piece) also took to the main stage earlier today, providing visitors with exclusive announcements and never-before-seen gameplay footage of the two upcoming titles.
The latest trailer for Doraemon Story of Seasons: Friends of the Great Kingdom featured gameplay footage of the ways players would be able to socialize with villagers, alongside tips and tricks on how to win over their friendship to progress in the game.
The first DLC pack of the game, “Winter Life,” has also been detailed. Releasing on November 2, the DLC pack contains costumes for Noby and friends as well as furniture — all of which is centered around the theme of winter life. A playable mini scenario is also included in this pack, featuring a new secret gadget.
A new feature of the game was also revealed, where the way each player rears and raises their animals will now affect their animals’ outer appearances. How well the animals are being taken care of by the players will lead to changes in their patterns and colours — leading to a more personable and immersive game experience for players.
One Piece Odyssey also featured Alabasta gameplay footage, which showcased many of the sights and sounds of the venue, along with a few traversal and exploration details in full display.
Visitors were also treated to a special video message from Marika Kohno, the voice actor for Lim, as well as Kappei Yamaguchi, the voice actor for Usopp — a video that was exclusively shown at the Bandai Namco Entertainment Booth during the event.
