Bandai Namco: Worst E3 2021 Showcase Yet?

Updated on

Bandai Namco presented their latest works for E3 this evening with quite a selection of woven works to share. Well, actually, that’s a lie. Bandai Namco didn’t reveal anything. A snippet, perhaps. But nothing majorly inviting. In fact, we could even argue that fans were left short-changed after tonight’s pickings. Of course, the gaming giant did set the stage for what should’ve been a promising showcase, with The Dark Pictures Anthology bearing the torch for the first leg of the journey. Unfortunately, Bandai stumbled at the first hurdle, and instead went on to pass the ashes to third-party resources to see them over the finish line.

E3 is just about ready to shut its doors for the year, with only one developer standing idle from the sidelines. After that, the official awards show will ignite the stage and commemorate the last four days in one final blowout. Until that time rolls around, we’ll be sifting through the reveals that E3 has unveiled since Saturday. Or, more importantly — Bandai Namco’s most recent announcements. Sorry — announcement.


The Dark Pictures Anthology: House of Ashes

House of Ashes - Story Trailer | Summer Game Fest 2021

Release Date: October 22nd 2021

Platforms: Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, PC

Bandai Namco kicked off their show with a glimpse of the third instalment to The Dark Pictures Anthology, House of Ashes. Although the official announcement was made a few days back as part of the Summer Games Fest, fans were still able to enjoy a refresher on what’s to come for the choice-based survival series. Long story short — it’s coming just shy of Halloween 2021 on Xbox One, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC. That’s pretty much it. Yeah, we were disappointed too.

E3 continues with Yooreka Studio at 3:20 p.m. (PT), followed by the official awards show at 4:45 p.m.
