For the first time in three yearsThe Tokyo Game Show will be open to the public as a live event at Makuhari Messe in Chiba, Japan.
In the fall of 2019, things were going as normal for the Tokyo Game Show. Once the pandemic broke out, the event turned to a digital-only event in 2020. Last year, it went online and, for industry members, in person with much reduced likelihood. This year will be the first time since the pandemic began that the event will be held in a more normal manner.
Tokyo Game Show will be held from September 15 to September 18.
“The theme for TGS2022 is ‘Nothing Stops Gaming,’ the organizers wrote in an official release. “Over the past two years, various hilarious events have disappeared from our daily lives, but games still brighten up our days. Games will continue to brighten people’s days now and forever ― this year’s theme implies such strong determination. “
However, unlike the previous year, children will not be allowed to attend. “Due to uncertainty about the vaccination situation among young people, primary school students or younger children are not allowed to attend school to ensure their safety.
TGS organizing committee explained. Furthermore, there will only be a limited number of tickets available, consistent with the policies of the Japanese government to prevent the spread of the virus.
There will still be online elements to the show, including streamed press conferences and simultaneous English translations. “Other popular shows from last year are also planned for a global audience, such as free demo versions of the latest games to enjoy at home, virtual tour experiences and TGS Virtual Reality (VR) area.” The combination of live and online will serve the show well.
Information regarding ticket sales will be announced this summer in mid-July.
