Tokyo Game Show 2020 Opens This Afternoon

Unlike previous years, the Tokyo Game Show (TGS) 2020 grand game exhibition will now be held virtually for the first time as a result of the covid-19 pandemic that has not subsided.

The event, often dubbed the largest gaming exhibition in Asia, will be held for 4 days, starting today, September 24, to September 27.

Although held virtually, the essence of this year’s TGS title remains the same as before Meaning that some developers and publishers of famous games, especially those from Japan, will also show off a number of new games.

Usually, the announcement will be either a video trailer or the gameplay of the game between each developer. Some of the game developers that are confirmed to be present includeCapcom, Bandai Namco, Square Enix, Koei Tecmo Games, and others.

Xbox game console maker Microsoft is also confirmed to be present at the TGS 2020 title. However, its competitor, Sony, missed out on this year’s TGS event.
