But what will the special talk about?

On the plot, we know that tells the story of a young programmer who creates a video game from a fantasy novel, but then the reality and the virtual element will begin to blend.

“A long-necked creature that smacks its jaws, it’s fierce and it’s incredibly fast.”

We just have to wait for December 28th, finally tomorrow.
