Irvine-based Bandai Namco Entertainment America Inc. continues to remind Orange County of its recent move-in by hosting local events.
To highlight the movie release of “One Piece Film: Red,” the gaming developer took to the Irvine Spectrum Center on Nov. 4 to show off demos of the upcoming anime video game, “One Piece Odyssey.”
Setting up shop in the lobby of the Regal movie theater, Bandai treated fans to a sneak peek of the game which will officially release in January.
A live-action film of One Piece is also on deck at Netflix. Other entertainment projects in the works for Bandai include a live-action Pac-Man movie and live-action Gundam movie, whose release dates have yet to be announced.
The gaming giant moved headquarters to a new 65,000-square-foot Irvine office in the Spectrum area of the city earlier this year. Bandai took to the nearby Irvine Spectrum in May to host a Pac-Man themed welcome event.
The Spectrum, ranked fifth in the Business Journal’s shopping centers list, has been host to numerous entertainment events this year—including a jet installation for the premier of “Top Gun: Maverick” and a similar film-themed exhibit for “Jurassic World: Dominion” in June.
