Anime Expo 2017 Updates: The US premiere for Lupin the 3rd - Italian Game, Kirby's Dream Band

Let's go over some updates on events at Anime Expo 2017 as it's rapidly approaching.

The US premiere for Lupin the 3rd - Italian Game
July 3rd, Day 3 @ 2:00PM-4:00PM
Location: The JW Marriott Diamond Ballroom/ Room Video 2

Celebrating 50 years with Lupin. This will be a screening of a TV special based on the new series airing on Toonami. Lupin has to rescue his wife(?), steal a special treasure and all while battling "The Masked Count." We're unsure if it has any relation to the Count of Caligastro. There's going to be a giveaway on-site at the screening of free exclusive T-shirts, specially designed by the character designer Hisao Yokobori.
