Falcom Related Events at AnimeExpo 2017

Anime Expo is this weekend, and there are multiple events that are related to Falcom and their releases here. I will add to this list as I find more – or if you know of something (since huge schedule is huge) that isn’t listed here, feel free to let me know in a comment and I’ll add it!

(All times are pacific time.)

Saturday, July 1

The Aksys Games Panel :: 2:00pm – 3:00pm
Live Programming 3: LACC – 408 AB
Aksys Games is the localizer working on Tokyo Xanadu. While the Vita version releases this Friday on the 30th, the PS4 and PC versions are still on the horizon for later this year.

Live Programming 1: LACC- Petree Hall (All events in this hall will be streamed live on Twitch.)
Though there is little information on this panel, it’s easy to assume that this is the chance for English-speaking fans to see Kondo and ask questions. Not just from the title, but as AnimeExpo lists it as a ‘Guest of Honor’ panel, as well.

Site 5 (“Exit South Hall Lobby lower level, turn left.”)
Arranged by NISA, this is a small location set for cosplay gatherings just outside the LACC. JCaito and Zerggiee are both cosplaying as Adol and Dana for NISA. Other cosplayers may be available.

Live Programming 4: LACC – 411
Over Twenty-five, dood. This is the amount of titles we will finish publishing by the end of 2017. IN this panel, NISA’s marketing team discusses the evolution of NISA and the variety of games NISA has published in the past. WIth key titles like Birthdays the Beginning, Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmoney, and Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana, what other surprises does NIS America have in store?

Other Events

If you’re on the floor and want to catch up with me, feel free to ping me at either @EndlessHistory or @omgfloofy on twitter. Or even just leave a comment here- my phone will notify me of comments to the site.

There are also plans of a Falcom fan meetup at the convention as well. I should be able to try and plan out more details on a time tomorrow evening.

Last, but not least, the box is assembled and completed. It will be given to Kondo at the panel on Saturday night.

I hope to see you all there!

    I know it’s super late but I was able to make use of this schedule heavily. I dressed up as Fie on AX2017 Day1 and again on Day 3 to meet Kondo-san at the NIS America signing. He was happy to see my cosplay. I was also able to meet Cassandra Lee Morris while dressed up as Fie.

    And I also got to meet Kaiji Tang, the voice of my favorite TOCS character, Gaius Worzel.

      It’s okay! Any comments are fine, no matter how late they are! :D (Especially from another Gaius fan. <3)

      I wish I could have seen your costume, too! Looking at the pictures, it looks great! I didn't get to see any of the cosplayers out there, and I heard of several from Cold Steel. :(

      Glad to hear that the convention was great, though, and that you had the chance to meet the voice actors. <3
