GOD EATER in particular we’re very excited about having at the show. It’s huge in Japan – and with the series making a big release in the West this year it makes perfect sense for it to receive a public debut at MCM Comic Con”.

Also located at the BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment booth will be an official merchandise & video games store – which will be showing off samples from our online store and selling show exclusive ‘PAC-MAN’ and ‘Tales of’ t–shirts along with other items such as discounted collector’s editions of BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment games.
