Namco to hold Level Up press conference tomorrow

Namco Bandai will hold their annual Level Up press event tomorrow at the Madinat Conference Center in Dubai. The publisher has promised “announcements” and a big showcase of their 2011 lineup.

The press conference will begin at 1:30am EST / 10:30pm PST on Wednesday, May 11 / Tuesday, May 10. Our friends at VG247 will be liveblogging the event.

Namco has not released an official lineup for the showcase, but we expect to see Dark Souls, Ridge Racer: Unbounded, Tales of Graces f, Tales of the Abyss 3DS, Inversion, and others.

In late April, Namco Bandai launched a countdown teaser website for a brand new game. As of press time, the countdown ends in just over 21 hours. It’s heavily believed to be a new Soul Calibur. If anything, it may show its face at the event — thought we should get confirmation beforehand in the weekly Famitsu leak.

The new Dragon Ball might make an appearance, as well.

Grab your coffee. You’re staying up late tonight.
