The New Game Plus Expo 2021 is set for March with a host of publishers taking part, albeit fewer than last year.

The digital event is also taking place a few months earlier than in 2020; this year it's set for March 4 at 8am PST / 11am EST. As the pandemic continues its choke-hold on in-person gatherings, everything is going down on the New Game Plus Expo Twitch channel for the second year in a row.

As mentioned earlier, New Game Plus Expo 2021 is a few publishers shy of its 2020 showing, with Atlus, Sega, SNK, Spike Chunsoft, and WayForward skipping this year's showcase. Still, there's a solid list of 10 fairly well-known game companies with reveals up their sleeves. Here's everyone attending (thanks, Siliconera):

  • Aksys Games
  • Arc System Works
  • Gungho America
  • Koei Tecmo
  • Idea Factory International
  • Inti Creates
  • Natsume
  • NIS America
  • Playism
  • PM Studios

The company organizing the event hasn't given so much as a tease of what to expect from the publishers, but it says it'll be "shining a spotlight" on them in the lead-up to the event. Personally, I'm just hoping Aksys reveals something new in the supremely underrated Zero Escape series, even if it's just a Switch port of the Nonary Games. I'm also excited to see how Harvest Moon: One World is coming along under Natsume's watchful eye.

In the meantime, here are all the upcoming games of 2021 we can't wait to check out.
