Bandai Namco have confirmed their attendance at Gamescom 2018 in Cologne, Germany, and also revealed their lineup of games to be shown at the event, including Dragon Ball Fighter Z on Nintendo Switch. Full list of games is shown below.

Bandai Namco's booth will be located in hall 6 - B 41 at the event. If this info doesn't say much, you can consult Gamescom's website for clearer instructions as well as the hall's plan.

Onto the juicy stuff - Bandai Namco's booth will feature eleven playable games. First on the list is Jump Force which will let players take control of characters from "some of the world's most famous manga and anime franchises" in order to do battle "in real locations from across the world" . This may sound like a stretch, but as long as we get to fight Luffy, Naruto, Goku and Ryuk, who really cares? 

Those less interested in anime dude brawls, will have their opportunity to play Soulcalibur VI, which will also feature female fighters with oversized assets. Goku enthusiasts on the other hand, will get more than one chance to see their favourite character, as Dragon Ball FighterZ will be playable on Nintendo Switch.

Luffy's fans won't be left short either, as One Piece World Seeker will put them right in Luffy's shoes, or slippers, or whatever he's wearing. Players will navigate "a huge and immersive new world" in their quest to help Straw Hat pirates to discover the secrets of Jail island.

To top the roster of most familiar anime faces off, Naruto will also make an appearance besides Jump Force. Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker will also be available at the booth and players will be able to create their own shinobi, complete with body and clothing customisation, on top of being able to choose their jutsu.

Players who are less interested in fist fighting will have a chance to experience dogfighting, as in fighter jet sorties, not animal cruelty. Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown will "put the players in the cockpit of one of the most advanced war planes ever developed" in order to give them a high octane air combat experience.

Code Vein and My Hero One's Justice will also make appearances at the booth and Bandai Namco will have "exclusive benefits" for players in their loyalty program. They mentioned fans should register ahead of the show. More information can be found on Bandai Namco's page.
