Building on our experiences last year, BitSummit X-Roads will be open to the public for the first time since 2019. In addition, we’re happy to welcome back developers, publishers, and sponsors from outside of Japan for this year’s event! Because of the procedure of the coronavirus measures, we will monitor the situation in Japan and follow all guidelines set by public health officials to make adjustments for safety.
Thanks to our experience hosting BitSummit THE 8th BIT last year, we plan to increase the number of ways for fans to participate online as well. Fans will connect with each other and developers via the BitSummit Discord and other social media channels. The accompanying live stream during BitSummit will focus on game reveals and plays and panels led by industry-leading talent.
Finally, to facilitate more opportunities for people to connect in these trying times, as last year, BitSummit will be organizing B2B meeting systems for developers, publishers, and media to strengthen more than the previous year.
BitSummit is sponsored and produced by Japan Independent Games Association (JIGA) along with The Kyoto Prefecture, and KYOTO CMEX (Cross Media Experience).
Additional information regarding special guest speakers, musicians, and sponsors will be unveiled in the coming months. Please bookmark the BitSummit website or follow our Twitter or Facebook channels for the latest announcements.
