D23 EXPO 2022 DISNEY & MARVEL GAMES SHOWCASE TO STREAM LIVE
What fans can expect from the presentation is new video game content from Disney & Pixar Games, Marvel Games, Lucasfilm Games, and 20th Century Games. That is quite a bit of IP and ground to cover. For games that will definitely be showcased this weekend, gamers can expect new reveals from the previously announced Disney Dreamlight Valley, Marvel’s Midnight Suns, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, and a sneak peek at the upcoming Marvel ensemble game from Skydance New Media.
Fans who will not want to miss the showcase will be able to watch the livestream on multiple platforms, including D23’s official website, and DisneyD23 on YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook. It will also be streaming on Disney’s YouTube channel, Twitter account, and Facebook account. Fans can also find it on the Marvel Entertainment YouTube, Twitter, Twitch, and Facebook platforms.
Fans who are attending this year’s expo live and in person will be able to view the showcase live on the Premiere Stage. A presentation will follow the livestream including developer interviews, special guests, and exclusive giveaways.
For other game-themed content on the show floor, Aniplex presents the Disney Twisted-Wonderland booth for a new anime-style game that’s inspired by Disney’s most iconic villains. The booth will feature the dorms of Night Raven College with a photo opportunity. They will also have the opportunity to see characters from the game at the Infinity Cube, an immersive experience that features live 2D animation. Additionally, everyone who visits the booth will receive a hand-fan featuring Grim, a cat-like monster who wants to be a great mage and your roommate in the game.
In terms of recently announced Marvel Entertainment games that would fit in perfectly at this presentation, besides Midnight Suns and the untitled Marvel ensemble project from Skydance, Insomniac Games is currently developing Spider-Man 2 and Wolverine for the PlayStation 5 console. For the Lucasfilm Games and Star Wars banner, Respawn entertainment is developing Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, an untitled Star Wars FPS game, and an untitled strategy game.
Legendary video game creator Amy Hennig also announced earlier this year that she is collaborating with Skydance New Media and Lucasfilm Games on an untitled Star Wars game project. D23 Expo might still be too early to learn about this title, but it would be nice if something gets announced this weekend. In short, there are actually quite a few intriguing Marvel and Lucasfilm titles in the works that could use some updates this weekend.
Disney’s D23 Expo 2022 is sold out. The event is scheduled for Sept. 9-11 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California. Besides the Disney & Marvel Games Showcase, other select additional presentations will be streamed for guests at D23 Expo Live! throughout the convention.
