42 replies 866 views Edited Aug 10, 2012

Not sure if anyone noticed this but I just saw this on Granzella's Facebook page. 

 

[ New Event Information_SCEE, SCEA ]
Granzella is happy to announce the Bon Festival event is coming to North America and Europe for PlayStation®Home around October. The Bon Festival is a traditional Japanese celebration honoring the spirits of ancestors. Dancing is a big part of the Bon Festival. A festive tower decorated in glowing lanterns is danced around to traditional songs. Visit the Great Edo of Nippon lounge during the festival and experience Edo transformed for this popular Japanese tradition.

Oddly enough someone did ask that on their Facebook page.  Here is the question as well as their response:

 

  •  Thank you! I missed the old Bon Festival space. Any chance the fishing game will be coming over soon too? I know Granzella is not the developer of that game but I recall it being linked up with Great Edo when I visited Home in Japan.
  • Great Edo of Nippon, a PlayStation Home Lounge by Granzella Inc. Thank you for your inquiry. 
    At this moment, we have no plan to create a fishing game, however, requests and suggestions like this are very helpful.
    We hope you enjoy our special limited event, "Granzella Bon Festival Dance".

GAW is done by a completely seperate company. They are able to do some colaboration between events because they can contact between them and SCEJ easily being in the same country.

 

The only problem with this event coming is that there will be only 1 reward (need to use GZ ticket, so it's actually a paid reward), unless they add the stuff like the smaller version figures for the shooting gallery and the trading with the old lady, although the old lady stuff probably won't come until they update the Defend Edo game.
