In cooperation with Nikkei Business Publications, Inc. and Dentsu, Inc., Computer Entertainment Supplier’s Association has announced that it will be holding TOKYO GAME SHOW 2022. Applications for the exhibition are now being accepted. The application deadline is Friday, May 27, 2022.
TOKYO GAME SHOW 2022 (TGS2022) will be held for four days from Thursday, September 15 to
Sunday, September 18. At Makuhari Messe (Mihama-ku, Chiba City, Chiba Prefecture), September 15 (Thu) and 16 (Fri) will be Business Days, and September 17 (Sat) and 18 (Sun) will be as Public Days. On the second Business Day on September 16 (Fri), however, general admission will be available from 2:00 p.m. During the event, the latest information on the game industry will be released through various channels, including online programs.
The theme for TGS2022 is “Nothing Stops Gaming.” Over these two years, various fun events disappeared from our daily life, but games still lightened up our days. Games will continue to brighten up the days of everybody now and forever—this year’s theme implies such strong determination.
From the perspective of preventing the spread of COVID-19 infection, TOKYO GAME SHOW was held fully online two years ago, and the last year’s TGS was held in a hybrid style of online programs as well as physical (in-person) venue inviting journalists and influencers. It is for the first time in three years to hold TGS at a physical venue with admission open for business and general visitors.
This year’s event will again launch official programs that have exceeded a total of 30 million views for the second consecutive year since TGS2020 ONLINE two years ago. Moreover, most of this year’s official programs in Japanese will also stream an English simultaneous interpretation version for overseas game fans. Other popular programs from the last year are also planned for a global audience, such as free trial of demo versions of the latest games to enjoy at home, virtual tour experience, and the TGS Virtual Reality (VR) area.
Stay tuned on TGS2022, which will be held in an even more advanced style combining the revival of a physical venue and the online streaming of official programs proving popular in past events.
