NACON announced earlier this month that a brand-new edition of its online press conference, NACON Connect will be held on March 9 (March 10 for us in ANZ). The Nacon Connect 2022 stream had a heap of new gameplay footage, new game announcements and release dates. With an especially full line-up this year (over 25 games planned for 2023), NACON will share lots of information about forthcoming games in this edition. The conference will also be an opportunity to show gameplay from several titles such as RoboCop: Rogue City, The Lord of the Rings: Gollum, Gangs of Sherwood and Ravenswatch. The Racing category will only be represented by TT3: Ride on the Edge in this edition.
