Jump Festa is an annual exposition in Japan focused around anime and manga. Jump Festa started in 2001, and features new movies, manga, merchandise, and games. Manga artists of many different titles attend the expo, and many of them will hold panels where they will answer questions that fans have. Jump Festa has also become a sort of gaming convention, where trailers, gameplay, and demos are all revealed.
Many other game developers will be at Jump Festa as well, showing off new and upcoming titles. Developers include Bandai Namco, Capcom, Konami, Nintendo, Sega, Sony, and many others. Along with demos, trailers, and stage events, there will also be tournaments held, including a tournament for the newly released Super Smash Bros for the Wii U. Games being featured include Tales of Zestiria, Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, Phantasy Star Nova, and Dragon Ball Xenoverse. Except for a few select Final Fantasy games, the Xbox One does not seem to get much love at Jump Festa, as there does not seem to be any other games that are being featured on the system. Jump Festa runs from December 20th to 21st.
