In addition, the Namco Bandai rep Hollie Bennett posted on her own twitter feed that she would also be doing live presentations for the games Tales of Graces f and Dragon Ball Z Kinect. Bennett later told ANN that the presentations would be at these times:

The PS3 game Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch was developed by Level-5 and features animation by Studio Ghibli. The story involves a young boy who crosses over into another world on a quest to find his mother. The game's North American and European release is planned for the first quarter of 2013, featuring both an English audio track and the original Japanese track.
Namco Bandai Games began streaming an English-dubbed trailer for Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch in April:
