Bandai Namco has opened its Tokyo Game Show 2022 webpage, which details its title lineup and live stream schedule. The company has been known as one of the major publishers to have a large booth with many self-published games besides Square Enix. While it had an unusually small showcase in 2021, the return of a public physical venue in 2022 also enabled Bandai Namco to bring a large number of games to the event as it usually does.
The upcoming RPG One Piece Odyssey will be the main highlight from Bandai Namco in TGS 2022. Its stream will run on September 15, 2022, at 22:00 JST (9 AM ET). This also means it will take up Bandai Namco’s slot on the Tokyo Game Show 2022 official channel. The company also has a mysterious stream scheduled at the end of the event on Sunday, September 18, 2022.
Here’s the schedule for Bandai Namco’s TGS 2022 streams known as of this writing. All times listed are in Japan Standard Time (UTC+9).

The stream schedule does not reveal the full extent of Bandai Namco’s title lineup at TGS 2022. Its physical booth will also have playable demos of Taiko no Tatsujin: Rhythm Festival, Doraemon Story of Seasons: Friends of the Great Kingdom, Ace Angler: Fishing Spirits, Park Beyond, and LEGO Brawls.
Even though the lineup is already extensive on its own, Gundam Evolution is notably missing from the Gundam game list. Bandai Namco will air a separate program dedicated to the first-person shooter game ahead of TGS 2022, on Tuesday, September 6, 2022, at 22:00 JST (9 AM ET). The pre-recorded Mission Briefing video will reveal new information about Gundam Evolution.
Tokyo Game Show 2022 will take place on September 15-18, 2022.
