Fourteen video game publishers from North America and Japan will participate in a new digital showcase in June, called New Game+ Expo.

The event will be streamed live on Twitch on June 23 at 8 a.m. PDT. It’ll continue throughout the day with “first looks, Q&A, and more.” Participants — like NIS America, Inc. and Sega of America — will share “new title announcements and live gameplay demos,” according to the press release.

“COVID-19 has brought with it many challenges, but also an opportunity to come together as a bold collective of publishers,” Sega of America president Ian Curran said in a statement. “SEGA is delighted to announce its participation in New Game+ Expo, a new digital tentpole summer event of 14 publishers, joining forces to create a one-of-a-kind showcase event that unifies a special slice of the video game industry.”

Here is the current list of publishers participating:

  • Acttil
  • AKSYS Games
  • Arc System Works America
  • GungHo America
  • Idea Factory International
  • Inti Creates
  • Koei Tecmo America
  • Nastume Inc.
  • NIS America, Inc.
  • Playism
  • Sega of America
  • SNK Corporation
