TOKYO GAME SHOW 2022 (TGS2022) opens today for four days from September 15(Thu.) to September 18 (Sun.) With the real venue returning to Makuhari Messe for the first time in three years, the event will be held in a hybrid style of in-person and virtual exhibition incorporating various online programs.

The first two days (Sep. 15 and 16) are Business Days exclusively open for game industry professionals and press people. General game fans can visit TGS2022 from 2:00 p.m. on Sep. 16 (Fri.) and on Public Days of Sep. 17 and 18. To prevent the spread of COVID-19 infection, we set the upper limit of visitors on each Public Day (Sep. 17 and 18.) For this reason, TGS2022 will allow entry of general visitors in addition to business visitors on the afternoon of Sep. 16 (Fri.) for more game fans to enjoy the in-person exhibition.

■ High Attention Gathered for Real Event Bringing Together. Game Industry Professionals and Fans from Japan and Overseas!

A total of 605 companies and organizations from 37 countries and regions will exhibit their products and services at TGS2022. Among them, 312 exhibitors(25 participating online) are from Japan, and 293 exhibitors (25 participating online) are from overseas, counting some 1.7 times more participants than the last year’s virtual-only exhibition. Moreover, although the exhibition scale of TGS2022 is cut to some 70% compared to the entirely in-person TGS2019, a more-than-expected number of exhibitors, nearly 90% of the 2019 exhibitors, are participating this year.

This year’s theme is “Nothing Stops Gaming.” TGS2022 will keep you up-to-date with the latest trends in the ever-progressing game industry through various in-person and online experiences.
