Earlier today, we learned that representatives from Capcom, Bandai Namco, Arc System Works, SNK, Arika, and Koei Tecmo will be partaking in a "Japan Fighting Game Publishers Roundtable" event on Friday/Saturday at 5 p.m. PT (July 31) / 8 p.m. ET (July 31) / 9 a.m. JST (August 1).

Previously, it was confirmed that Guilty Gear Strive would be receiving a new character trailer during the broadcast. Bandai Namco has just revealed that there will be new announcements and information pertaining to Tekken 7 and Soul Calibur 6.

"Tekken 7 producer Katsuhiro Harada and Soul Calibur 6 producer Motohiro Okubo will be participating in the roundtable on behalf of Bandai Namco Entertainment Inc. and will have new information and announcements to share regarding both titles," stated Bandai Namco.

Season 3 of Tekken 7 had previously already wrapped up with the release of Zafina, Leroy, Ganryu, and Fahkumram as the latest DLC fighters to join the roster. It's possible that the announcement of a Season 4 could be waiting for us at roundtable broadcast.

As for Soul Calibur 6, only Haohmaru (from Samurai Shodown) and Hilde have been announced and released for Season 2. We still have no idea who the two remaining challengers are for Season Pass 2.

There's currently no word in the statement about Dragon Ball FighterZ even though this is a title that's produced by Bandai Namco. With only Kefla and Ultra Instinct Goku available for Season 3, the three other combatants have yet to be revealed.

The likelihood for announcements from Capcom, SNK, Arika, and Koei Tecmo seems very high as Bandai Namco and Arc System Works have already unveiled some of their plans. As of right now, we've yet to receive any official confirmation from Capcom, SNK, Arika, and Koei Tecmo about reveals from them.

In addition to Katsuhiro Harada for Tekken 7 and Motohiro Okubo for Soul Calibur 6, the Japan Fighting Game Publishers Roundtable will be attended by Street Fighter 5 producer Shuuhei Matsumoto, Street Fighter 5 director Takayuki Nakayama, Guilty Gear general director Daisuke Ishiwatari, general battle director Kazuto Sekine, SNK producer Yasuyuki Oda, SNK director Nobuyuki Kuroki, Fighting EX Layer producer Akira Nishitani, and Dead or Alive 6 producer Yohei Shinbori.
