BitSummit is back. The annual Japanese indie game festival recently announced its lineup of musicians and speakers including Koji Igarashi of Bloodstained and Castlevania fame, Rez creator Tetsuya Mizguchi, Tom Happ (the man behind Axiom Verge) and Goichi "Suda51" Suda. Oh, and Sony Interactive Entertainment's president of worldwide studios, Shuhei Yoshida.

Silent Hill composer Akira Yamaoka and one half of the two-man studio behind PlayStation-exclusive Sound Shapes, Shaw-Han Liem are scheduled to perform as well. If none of those names make you want to book a flight to Kyoto, Japan maybe, just maybe word that Seaman creator Yoot Saito will be in attendance too.

Once again, Indie Megabooth is helping organize the event and it all goes down July 9th and 10th. When our own Jessica Conditt spoke with Indie Megabooth's President and CEO Kelly Wallick last year, Wallick said of BitSummit that it had "a tremendous impact on how not only local developers see their own community, but how the greater international community does as well." With this year's lineup of speakers, musicians and games, the 2016 edition shouldn't change that one iota.
