The broadcast begins at July 9, 6pm PDT / July 10, 2am BST with a one-hour introduction and be streamed on YouTube and Twitch.
While fans will find the broadcast entertaining, there will unlikely be any new announcements regarding the upcoming Endwalker expansion coming in November.
The Letter from the Producer segment will nonetheless review the information recently announced for the expansion, which includes the new Reaper job and playable male Viera, so it’s possible the team will provide a little more detail.
As Yoko and Saito will be discussing their work on the game’s Nier-themed YoRHa: Dark Apocalypse alliance raids, fans are also invited to submit questions about the raid series on the official forums.
Elsewhere, Final Fantasy V and VI are to be removed from Steam next month. These will be replaced by new pixelated remasters, which include the first six games in the Final Fantasy series, first announced during Square Enix‘s E3 2021 showcase.
