Bandai Namco announced on Friday “Digimon Con,” a new online event that will stream on the company’s official YouTube channel worldwide for free on February 26, starting at 8:00 p.m. EST. The website lists the event as a “celebration of all things Digimon, presenting a wide range of content.”
The event will be streamed in both English and Japanese. Portions of the broadcast will vary between the English and Japanese streams.
Content will include a special planning segment about the Digimon anime, an information segment about a Digimon gamen, new information and an app-related segment about the Digimon Vital Bracelet peripheral, the initial selection results for the Digimon Illustration Competition, and a live performance by Ayumi Miyazaki. The website will reveal a schedule soon, and content may change without notice.
The Digimon Illustration Competition will take place from December 16 to February 6. The theme is cute or cool Digimon scenes. The works selected for the Grand Prize and Second Prize will be used as card designs for the Digimon Card Game, and Bandai Namco may use the illustrations at events.
