Jump Festa 2012 will be held on December 17 and December 18. The location is the usual Makuhari Messe just outside of Tokyo (the same location space as Tokyo Game Show), and the entry fee is the usual free.
Exhibitors this year number 27. Nintendo, Sony Computer Entertainment, Sega, Namco Bandai, and Square Enix are back this year. They'll be joined by five newcomers, including Pokemon Company.
The week of Jump Festa already a busy one, with Final Fantasy XIII-2 due out on the 15th and PlayStation Vita being released on the 17th itself. Jump usually has major announcements and trailer showings, particularly from Square Enix. Details on what will be shown have yet to be announced.
