Gundam VS Gundam's playable status is somewhat of a surprise, as the game was only just announced today. Its release is planned for December 3, though, so this could be its last chance at a major gaming event.
Also of note at the official site is a list of stage events.
Press-only events include a .hack//Link Project announcement meeting for the 24th, where the latest announcements about new .hack projects will be made. The 25th will see a press tournament for Tekken 6, featuring both domestic and overseas players.
Public events on the 26th include an Idol Master Dearly Stars SP Stage, a "Robot Games" stage, a "God Eater The First Mission" stage featuring talk sessions and demo units, and an Idol Master Dearly Stars PSP stage.
Continuing a tradition, Namco Bandai will hold two different Tales events. The event on the 26th is about Vesperia and Graces. The event on the 27th is about just Graces. Both are one hour long, so perhaps the second day will contain additional information on the upcoming Wii entry.
