The original story is below.

With the beginning of the 2018 Anime Expo starting today. NIS America wants to remind everyone that they’ll be in attendance and will be sharing some news regarding several new titles. As to what games these games are, is anyone’s guess.

NIS America previously announced a handful of games ahead of PAX East 2018 and E3 2018. With their Anime Expo announcement, we can only assume these will be brand new games that they’ll be talking about. We’ll just have to wait and see what games will be on hand. If you’ll be on hand for the event, stop by booth 3400 and say hello.

The 2018 Anime Expo runs from July 5 – July 8, 2018, which is being held at the Los Angeles Convention Center, located in California.
