And when these publishers what to make a big impression, they really mean it as each major booth has their own gimmicks that gives a wow reaction to anyone who would visit their area.

Some booths even have special merchandise section for fans to purchase limited edition items or products that have discounted price only exclusive to the event.
Next are the mobile games, there are a ton of games that you can try out, though some are only available in Taiwan in which there might not have an English version or Global server. But it will be worth to check those games in hopes of seeing them getting localized soon. Some favorites at the event include Fate/Grand Order, Dragalia Lost, Honkai Impact 3rd, King’s Raid, Monster Strike and more.
PC Games aren’t left behind as titles like Black Dessert are still making a big impact inside. With special tournaments and other stage activities to hype their loyal communities.
There are also some promising new titles that aren’t from your usual developers and publishers, one example is from JFi Games where they are showcasing the action RPG Dusk Diver which will be available for PC and the Nintendo Switch.
The coolest part when participating these events aside from getting sneak peeks is the free goodies that you can take home. It can be a form of button pins to paper bags or sometimes in-game codes (if you play some of those games) and even red envelopes for the Chinese New Year, or if you are lucky, you could get some premium items such as limited edition shirts or bags.
It was a ton of fun at Taipei Game Show 2019 and hopefully we could drop by for next year
